  • [update#4] Updating Meizu Pro6 ChinaMainland (A or Q) to G (Global) SW? [Method1] or [2,3,4 failed]


    Hi, All.
    I’ve tried to update my 5.4.1.1Q [original version in china mainland] to Global Version.

    downloaded and try to updates from link https://forum.meizufans.eu/topic/2599/guide-how-to-install-i-international-firmware-on-your-chinese-mainland-meizu

    [Updated #4] Finally I’ve failed to change A.Q version to 5.2.4.0G (Global Version) and Reverted to 5.2.4.1A .

    You can my progress by Update # 1, 2, 3 with update method 2 way. And Also needs to update above article
    Method 2 or 3 way , converting updates images utilities.

    Conclusion :
    Meizu Pro6 A version and G version has different device information and Device IMEI information tables.
    So, I’ve forceley changed/updated to G version , Can’t Identify IMEI and Phone Call LTE/GSM informations.
    And, then Just use as wifi pad. not a smart phone.

    Another Question is changing it to A or Q version install Google Service? thru unlocking china region bound.

    [Updates #1]
    Method 2, 3 failed : can’t converting the new system images.
    Pro6 , 5.2.4.0G file has Zero (0) values.
    convert programs break on Zero (0) .

    Method 4 with 5.4.2.0G has always failed “Firmware Corrupt” messages shown.

    I want to use Global version and Google Apps.
    Is there Method1 or Method2 way?

    [Updates #2]
    I’ve found Converter programs in github https://github.com/trustfarm/sdat2img
    add sdat2img.py to bin/ folder

    caution You needs to install python 2.7 for windows and python.exe is on PATH

    inside of System-conVERTER.cmd

    bin\sdat2img -> bin\sdat2img.py

    Then It makes Out\system.img

    copy system.img to M570C (Pro6) internal Download/ folder.

    using putty with conneted sshDroid (pro6)

    dd if=/storage/emulated/0/Download/system.img of=/dev/block/platform/mtk-msdc.0/11230000.msdc0/by-name/system 
    

    5~10 minutes blank , but ssh putty terminal acks when enter.

    [Updates #3]

    -_- :disappointed: Half of Success. sim information and some things are not compatible with previous things.

    It may be default system library must updates with given update.zip [5.2.4.0G]

    Anyway I’m install google play service.

    Booting!

    please give a more advanced solutions.

  • I would try to flash the device to an A version firmware (best would be the oldest one, instead of the newest). This makes sure you have a “solid” base (known to work).
