Dear all,

Here is a tutorial to unlock meizu E3 without any malicious software.

The idea is to edit frp partition and make the fastboot flashing unlock pass the security check.

Please note below might damage your phone so do it as your own risk, i do not responsible to any damage made.

Detail step:
(1)get root access
(2)install terminal emulater app
(3)dump frp partition
(4)modify frp by hex editor at offset 7fff8 and 7fff to 1 (not sure 7fff8 or 7ffff take the effect, so i edit both) as frp1
(5)write frp1 back to frp partition
(6)reboot boot loader
(7)fastboot flashing unlock
(8)press up-vol or down-vol (not sure, i stop here, feedback welcome)

This is generic enough for MTK and Qcom soc, success story other than sdm636 and mt6755 are welcome.

An unofficial twrp for MeizuE3 is available below for people unlocked bootloader and would like to play with custom rom.

twrp custome ver 3.3.1:
-ramdisk is from model whyred
-kernel is self compile, based on LA.UM.8.2.r1-05700-sdm660.0
-with lcd and touchpad driver patched
BTW, this twrp support encrypted data partition, so it is working parallel with flyme8 well.

An official MeizuE3 recovery img is also provided here for people would like to boot and restore flyme back.

A vlog for booting MeizuE3 with LineageOS 17.1 up to splash screen is available at youtube:

It is based on below LOS custom system build from rcstar6696 and kvsjxd, credit him:

Found in other thread* that mentioned about persist partition might be wiped by LOS17 or other custom rom and cause Wlan mac missing etc. I suspect this is also true for unstable wifi too. So if there is anybody have an original persist partition dump please upload and share.
