First Meizu. Need help.
Meizu MX4

I just received my mx4 from an aliexpress seller. Its Flyme version is 4.0.4U. Can I install the International version of Flyme? And how? Please provide instructions. I’m an accountant and not a techinically educated person and this is my first meizu phone so kindly provide instructions.

You can’t install “I” International firmware.
You can only use “U” - unicom and “A” - China Mainland firmwares.
I advice you to install/flash 4.1.1A firmware and flash it.
4.1.1 has less Chinese apps and there are none “U” - unicom bloatware apps.

Download 4.1.1A, copy “update.zip” to your phone.
Open the Document app
Click on update.zip
It will prompt/ask you if you want to update firmware.
Click yes
(I advice you to clear data so you
don’t have force close or any other problems)
After clicking yes, the phone will reboot to recovery and it will begin the update firmware process.
In about 5 minutes the update will finish and the phone is ready for setting up and using.
Thats it, Good Luck.

(there is a thread with full explanation, how to update firmware on Meizu MX4.
There are 2 methods.
One method is the one that I explained above.
The other method is:
Turn off your phone
Hold power+volume up
The phone will enter in recovery
Coonect it with PC
Copy update.zip on recovery partiotion on the phone
Select update and clear data
And click next
The phone will start verifying and updating
After updating the device will reboot.
Thats it)

I have the same device, MX 4-Unicom,I ordered via aliexpress also.
I’m using 4.1.1A and everything is OK.

Best you can do is 4.0.4A or 4.1.1A for now. “A” version is closest to international version. I personaly use 4.1.1A on international version Phone.

I Just received OTA for 4.1.2 A
So wait untill 4.1.2A is available for download,then download it and install it.

Thank you very much Gajche. I’ll try it now.

It got installed fine. All recommendation lists and menus are in chinese only. If at least the weather app could show english it would be great.

Unfortunately it can’t :(
Maybe try Yahoo Weather instead.

Delete the stock weather widget and install
Some other by your choice from play store.
I’m using transparent weather.

Thanks. Its great. Is the additional space from 360 Cloud limited by how long i can use it? Last year i bought a samsung phone which offered 2 tb dropbox space which i could use only for a year.

I do not know. Maybe lifetime :D

Is there any app which can directly stream music from cloud? The native music app seems to play only local media saved on the phone. Or maybe i couldn’t find the option to stream from cloud.

Meizu MX4

66 TB cloud space. Unbelievable. Just need a good music streaming app now. I’ve put all my music, audiobooks and lecture mp3s and flac files on the cloud. There’s no option to stream in meizu app as i see.

Is there any option to backup system setting and especially launcher settings? I have a couple of folders and just didn’t want to set things up again from scratch once I clean install new firmware…

Looks like your connection to Meizufans was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
