Hi.

Could someone help me get this phone rooted. I can provide everything needed, just do not know what is needed.

In developer options there is a a option:

Oem unlocking
Allow the bootloader to be unlocked.

Firmware can be dowloaded from flymeos site. Cant share links yet.

Any help would be great, maybe even some kind of payment would be used if successful rooting is achieved.

Titanium backup working.

Costed 500 dollars. Arrived in 10 days when white version became aviable...

FYI there is an online application form to apply to meizu for root but it doesn't seem to work on my global phone.
when I reach the page to choose my phone it doesn't show my phone in the dropdown list for "select phone"

Try it here see if it works for you

Sent you links and quick tutorial.
I think we just flash global update.zip. Not sure. No problems so far with chinese firmware.
Difference - chinese dont have google play store and there are few apps in chinese which you can freeze once you are rooted.

I installed google play store with Google Installer 3.0 from or for xiaomi. Worked with few hickups, you have to install one item on the list, close installer, install second item on the list, close installer and so. Took 3 minutes. Everything works normal - maps, play store, play games, calendar...

Yup, online application is only for A firmware. If you dont mind waiting i think they will add global soon...
