Wonderful post, i just tried yestarday and all works ok, I change "Step 5: Install Ubuntu Touch" and use directly ubports-install software, even, it works second time i do, on first time i get stucked on bootloop, but it's a very good howto for Meizu pro 5 (Chinese version) with Android
@rubencarneiro great job Ruben....I see you are on fire with the Meizu Pro 5...here's my proposal: what about the issues described in this Forum post? The issues seem to be related to the fact that the Meizu Pro 5 "TD-LTE" version apparently isn't exactly the same device as the original MP5, the Canonical model to be clear. We made some progress in this regards, but no ultimate resolution up to now. What I found out to "resolve" the wi-fi issue was incidentally the installation of Anbox; maybe the kernel update was beneficial, I don't know. Do you have any clue? If you could help me and the other people with this model, we would appreciate a lot....I will definitely think about a donation to you for your work
@Stefano AFAIK it should remain. But yeah, Ruben is the right guy to answer
@Stefano no the scripy pu the package on hold so it cannot be updated.
you can do your updates safely.
@rubencarneiro I just switched channel to Devel and fingerprint function is gone. Normal switching on phone, not by installer or manually.

@Stefano It doesn't matter. Switching channels is a full flash of the rootfs, so changes made to the rootfs will be overwritten.
@dobey Ahh, ok then, did not know that. Thanks for the clarification.

I have an International Meizu PRO 5 32Gb
Everything worked, except STEP 5 (I'm not sure why).
My Alternative Step 5 was (thank to Matteo in the UBports Welcome & install group on telegram):
- download the appImage: https://github.com/ubports/ubports-installer/releases/tag/0.2.6-beta (this specific version/binary)
chmod +ax ubportsinstaller.appImage
- switch phone to fastboot (
adb reboot fastbootor just hold
[Volume down] + [power]
- Ignore the ubports installer about more recent version
stablefor example, then
wipe, and continue
- keep following instructions
- tadaa \o/
And any other steps worked !
Thank you very much for your work !!!

Can you explain why you offer for download your files? I need open source or more verification files. Thanks
@matteo Hi, Mine is a TD-LTE Version.
@rubencarneiro do you have any issue as for instance the lack of automatic connection to the wi-fi Access Point at phone start-up? Every time, I need to manually re-instate the credentials to my home wi-fi to get connected to it.
@matteo thatś not normal, didi you try a clean install.
