Hi,

Before all, I am not responsible if your device get bricked or something like this.

So you need to unlock the bootloader before, check this tutorial to do that : http://forum.xda-developers.com/meizu-mx/general/tutorial-unlock-bootloader-meizu-pro-5-t3303127

After that, download the twrp image here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/meizu-mx/general/recovery-twrp-3-0-meizu-pro5-t3349888

Then place the twrp file on your desktop.
Boot you Pro 5 into fastboot mode (Power+Vol down) and connect it to pc.

Launch cmd, and then go to your desktop :

Then type this command :

Code:
fastboot flash recovery twrp_pro5.img

If there are no problems, you will get that :

And that's all, now you can boot on TWRP with Power+Vol Up

Perfect! Nice one. Thank you for taking the time to do this. Can't wait to try it out! Now you have TWRP have you tried flashing anything like a custom kernel or something?

Be careful with flashing zip with TWRP : I have flashed an update (official) with TWRP to see if it works : update flash works but now I can't access to any recovery, just fastboot and system.

Unable to flash any recovery with fastboot, permission denied, locked bootloader after update.

And I can't flash recovery with the Meizu official tool, I get "token sign failed".
So I can't update the phone at all, no official update, nothing because the phone won't boot into recovery.

Great.

You need note: If you flash stock rom (no delete bootloader) devices will update bootloader and devices will lock bootloader
If you want flash rom stock or update rom pls delete file
bootloader , dtb ,ldfw,logo.bin,recovery.img,firmware_type,imei.dat,machine_match
and folder META-INF\com\android
Then edit updater-script
good luck

Thanks, but now I can't update anything : when I try to boot into recovery, the phone boot into system. Power+Vol.Up doesn't work now, until I flashed the new rom. So I can't update the phone.

you can try
1-root devices
2-use flashfire or flashify flash recovery stock (recovery.img stock in rom stock zip meizu)
good luck

Thanks, I can flash official update, but when I try to flash recovery.img (official too) : IOException write failed, Permission Denied.

I have tried to flash the update with the unlocked bootloader : works, but the bootloader won't get unlocked.

Thanks for the help.

This may be useful to flash, on stock recovery, an UPDATE.ZIP with only the unlocked bootloader ?:confused:

I will upload file rom with bootloader unlock
use stock recovery flash
may be tomorow

Still have it :

Maybe it'll be better to find a way to flash ONLY the unlocked BL, without to reflash the entire rom again ?! ;)


Let me understand... I've to unlock BL in order to flash TWRP... with which I can unlock BL ?! :D:D:D Naaaa, there's a way to unlock it flashing only 3 files ( bootloader + dtb + boot.img ) by stock recovery, we have to discover how and find this way :highfive:

Perhaps I've another way to unlock the BL without losing rom, data, etc. Only 2 lines in fastboot.

If someone wants to try.. :)

Keep in mind that looked bootloader will ALWAYS check file signature .... which mean only official or resigned file will apply correctly... Unlocked one is less critical and you can flash rom (zipped) with deleted/changed bootloader or recovery img

Why don't you simply use titanium backup first ? Then unlock bootloader, flash recovery, install whatever rom build you want and root+ restore ? This way you won't have spend 2 days for an AIO solution that might never be available
