Just a simple HOW TO to centralize everything I found on Russian, Italian, meizufans and xda forums.
M2 Mini has good hardware but very poor software, going to CM is a relief !
I'm not responsible for bricked device.
You may loose warranty.
You need basic knowledge of using adb tools and rooting phones.
**Boot in Recovery and Fastboot**
Boot in recovery : power on holding Volume Up and Power
Boot in fastboot mode : power on holding Volume Down and Power
King Root works well http://www.kingroot.net
Google drivers won't recognize M2 Mini, you have to edit the inf file.
You have to activate USB Debugging in the Developer Options for ADB to work.
1) Download drivers at: http://developer.android.com/sdk/win-usb.html
2) Edit android_winusb.inf
3) Go to [Google.NTamd64] section and add this to the end of the section :
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0E8D&PID_201D&MI_01
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_2A45&PID_0C02&MI_01
4) Reboot Windows without driver signature enforcement

2) Copy file to sdcard via MTP or ADB
adb push unlock_bootloader.sh /sdcard
3) Execute the file as root from ADB
(accept warning on the phone)
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot oem unlock
(wait for the phone to display confirmation)
"Volume Up" to accept
(wait for unlocking)
5) Reboot your phone into Flyme OS
It is very important to restart your phone and wait for Flyme OS to boot up completely before flashing a custom recovery.
**Custom recovery (TWRP)**
If you didn't boot into Flyme OS at the previous step, you might be stuck in boot loop in recovery and need to go back to the stock recovery (Uploaded on XDA by @murtaza1326)
