Edit: i retyped the whole thing(more like copypasted and corrected some obviously bad grammar from the email i sent to meizu) to be more “formal” and readable/understandable since i wrote the other one in a big hurry.
Proper punctuation might be still missing, soz.(and possible minor grammar mistakes)
I recently acquired (not bought, for how i got it, keep reading) a meizu m2 (not NOTE, just the normal one that i’ve seen be sometimes called “mini”). My friend’s mother works at a hotel and apparently their policy there is if an employee finds something “lost” he can take it home after 7 days if no one comes to pick it up. So there was this Asian person staying at their hotel and i was told he left his phone(the device i got) when he left, and then didnt come back for it after the 7 day period so she took it and gave it to her son ( my friend ), he however has a better phone than me and he knows i have a really bad one right now so he gave the meizu m2 to me. Surprisingly the phone had no password/pattern/pin or any kind of lock, AND it didn’t have a sim card, it only had a 2gb sd card which made it look like he left it on purpose. Before giving it to me, my friend says he factory reset it because it had a lot of weird things and mostly asian pornographic material but when he gave it to me i did factory reset it once more and wiped the sd card aswell which only had a few screenshots. After my reset , some (presumably) chinese apps showed up (which is weird since when i picked it up from my friend who said he also reset it it barely had any apps) and i looked around the settings to find the version of the OS and after looking it up on the internet i understood its the chinese (Y) version (and an old one, 4.5something which was only android 5) so i went to the official flyme website and download 5.something version for the phone, G (global) version but when i put it on the phone and tried to run it it said something like files not found or files not receivable ( i dont remember exactly) so i looked my problem up and found out that since the phone is chinese it can only take chinese OS (PRESUMABLY, aka my problem might be somethign else but i could normally download Y firmware) unless i change one little thing with a file and rooting it, and at the same time i found out that for a root i need just a flyme account so i created one but when i tried to login to root it and change to the global version it says “You have not logged out as 131****9202. To use another Meizu account, please log out properly first.” , which is weird since whatever account was there is already logged out since i can try to login. That was a big bummer, REALLY big so i gave up but i funnily found out about flyme 6 which apparently is based on android 7 (Really excited) so i dug around the forums downloaded whatever i found , the “latest” version didnt work (checking failed somehow) so i downloaded a “stable” (according to forum post) version and it worked , but again its Y (the forum didn’t have a selection other than Y for the stable version i think, which is weird ,so it means i would have to go with 5 if i could root but 5 is still better than what i already have, plus i am afraid someone could spy on me if its somehow already logged in without showing it even after factory reset. But i see the newest beta version is G (but stable isn’t, lol ) so i would probably use that unless i found problems then i would go to the latest 5 version). Now my question is why does it say there is an account logged in even after restart,i am abit scared because i just wanted to install the latest global version with google stuff and everything english so i can use it as a new phone even if its a bit dirty and the camera glass is gone.
ps: i cant scroll through forum categories unless i open the tab on only half hte screen(looks like on mobile phone) and can this stop telling me to disable adblock ,i’ve excluded the domain it still tells me its on , i even paused adblock and it still shows the warning
