No Recovery mode more on Meizu Pro 5
Jeffi27 last edited by Jeffi27
Hello everybody. I converted a Meizu china version to global version some time ago, and I unlocked the bootloader after installing the official Ubuntu touch.
Afterwards I installed Flyme OS again, now I no longer have recovery mode, the bootloader is locked, and it is impossible to start recovery mode. I tryed everything possible to do, the handy is rooted.
Anyone have an idea what else could I do.
Thank you in advance
the posting under support i gave you has links,
you could down grade to 5.1.1 flyme. to get an unlockable bootloader,
there is a link to Stefanos copy of 15.04 .zip ,if you look inside it gives you TWRP and ota1 and a recovery to flash from fastboot to remove TWRP and give you an ota upgradable system.
To flash to 16.04 xenial you should need to increase the size of your cache to be succesful
Setefano put 16.04 zip, up that i flashed thru TWRP without increasing cache size. but i did go back later and increase it.
hope you find what you need
You dont understand me, I have no recovery mode anymore, and bootloader is locked, the OS on a device for a moment is Flyme OS 6.1.0 Global and the device is rooted, My problem is, that I can not put the device anymore on recovery mode, but I can put it on e fastboot mode. I can not even downgrade os upgrade with flyme os anymore!
you can try to flash TWRP from fastboot ( that you find in stefanos 15.04 )
TRY, sudo fastboot oem unlock
sudo fastboot devices
sudo fastboot flash recovery (link your twrp copy here)
go into the flyme developer setting ,see if there is an oem unlock setting ,and the adb setting.
there is a start combination to get you to a basic phone/android setting (see if i can find it)
yeah no recovery,but try it
or you should be able to put the 5.1.1 g update, on the root of phone memory, and with it called update, it should downgrade your system
the pro5 can be aggravating i know
Just a thought there is a 6.3 g version out,??? Will it let you do an overnight upgrade,??
take a look in here first.
@Jeffi27 if the bootloader was unlocked previously, it might be possible to unlock it without going through the required steps. I have done that on my Mx4. Just try to unlock it in fastboot again. It worked for me. Unless you have flashed the Chinese version.
sudo fastboot oem unlock
@marathon2422 no , it will not, its saying: "your device is Rooted" it is impossible.
second problem: the boot loader is locked, it is inpossible to flash custom recovery.
@stefano no i did not flash Chinese version, it is Global, but it does not work the unlocking bootloader.
every time i try to unlock: sudo fastboot oem unlock, does nor work,
@marathon2422 ok I will try, but the chance are =00 ;)
@jeffi27 I just wonder how could you loose the recovery. If you flashed Flyme, it should automatically install Flyme recovery.

@stefano when i flashed Flyme OS firmware, there was twrp recovery on the device, and i flashed the flyme os via twrp without removing the bootloader, recovery and ldfw from the zip file
@jeffi27 But you should have the Flyme recovery installed, it's part of the update.zip , unless it got corrupted.
What happens when you press and hold power +volume up?
This post is deleted!
@stefano nothing happens, it tries to start in recovery mode, but it does not start. I have searched in web if there is a possibility to flash the stock recovery, nothing I found
Stefano; do you think this may help
xep.8800.org/pro5/nougat/ (lots of stuff here)
(I am on eastern time )
@marathon2422 thnx bro, I tryed all this stuff, nothing help.
only way I thing is MRT Dongle.
@marathon2422 I'm afraid that a new motherboard is needed. I got bricked one this way, tried everything possible, but no luck.
Take a look at the flash tool in the link its the factory version,you may need a token for it tho
@marathon2422 Flash tool for an Exynos device?
@stefano yes its in that link and there is a pdf with it,the folder is called flashtool. may be worth a look.,you may understand its working much better than I
When you open the link,click on pro5,top of the list,should take you to it
I am walking the dog, not at home
