Meizu MX4 arale ubuntu edition problems switching to UBports

  • Hi,

    I used the ubports-installer tool to flash my MX4 from Ubuntu to UBports. I followed the onscreen instructions, enabled developer mode on the mx4, and initiated the process.

    Right now, the ubports-installer tool shows a rotating circle around the mascot and on the MX4 there is a black screen with => FASTBOOT mode... written in the lower left corner.

    However, the ubports-installer tool also has a gray bar below the mascot showing:
    Meizu MX4 Please connect your device with an usb cable.
    But wasn't that written there all the time? I did not pay attention on this.
    Should I unplug the USB cable from my Mac or do I brick my phone by doing this?
    How long will flashing approximately take?
    Currently, I have waited about half an hour.

    Thanks for your feedback.
