MY MX5 LOCKED

0

So my problem is i bought my MEIZU MX5 from Aliexpress the phone arrived safetly. The device was bloated(i mean so many apps on it)i decided to remove some of the apps one by one, but i was too lazy to do that. I figured out if i do factory reset it will be fast, so i did it…after factory reset the phone boot successfully, now the device is asking me for password on first boot screen with some email. So i discovered the seller has allready login with his own email in flyme account…well i contacted the seller what he told me is he has forget the password for that phone. Now am stuck with paper weight phone.

I know my way around android device.

I DID SOME TROUBLESHOOTING
--------------------------------------------------

1.connected my device to my PC if i can get ADB to work but it failed.
2.Try to boot with hardware key to enter recovery mode so i can downgrade to old flymeOS firmware but failed(volume up + power/sleep/awake)

  1. Try bootloader mode with fastboot to flash stock recovery but i can find stock recovery( Will be happy if someone will help me to find stock recovery for MX5)

PLEASE IF ANYONE HAS AN IDEA OR HAS FACED THIS KIND OF PROBLEM BEFORE SHOULD HELP ME OUT BECAUSE I CAN’T LOSE MY ONLY LOVED MEIZU DEVICE THANKS.

@Brisco59 the device you were sold is a second hand one. The only way to unbind the device from Flyme is to get the password from the seller. The device might be even stolen. If I would be you I would try to get my money back as Meizu themselves do not help a lot with this sort of issues, due to understandable reasons (could be a stolen device with a fake invoice).

@Rey Yeah i think the Device is stolen…i contacted the seller earlier today for the password he gave me wrong password…I have open dispute now he is suggesting that i should return the phone for replacement.

money first, get money back and send device back,
i bought mx5 with passcode enabled, (was cracked screen so i wasnt able to saw this), so now i cant even do a factory resset because even with HW keys pressed VOL+ and POWER i get recovery mode, but once i Tick WIPE DATA, it asks me for passcode :D funny as that… i hope that flyme account will not be registered and FIND device isnt enabled, wish me luck :)

i contacted my seller, and he is unable to remember a passcode, he claims that he was using fingerprint all the time.
so now i have no option where to go since i paid a 100€ for a new screen…

will try to flash old firmware to get data cleared, but its just a last idea…
