About SP Flash Tool error with Meizu MX4 (solved)
I tried to use SP Flash Tool(v5.1612) to flash my Meizu MX4 (Flyme edition)
and got the following error.
Connecting to BROM... Scanning USB port... Search usb, timeout set as 3600000 ms add@/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb1/1-4 add@/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb1/1-4/1-4:1.0 add@/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb1/1-4/1-4:1.0/tty/ttyACM0 vid is 0e8d device vid = 0e8d pid is 0003 device pid = 0003 com portName is: /dev/ttyACM0 Total wait time = -1559544040.000000 USB port is obtained. path name(/dev/ttyACM0), port name(/dev/ttyACM0) USB port detected: /dev/ttyACM0 BROM connected Downloading & Connecting to DA...

What should I do now?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
@Kelvin-Cheung hi, usually that kind of error is fixed by uninstalling the
modemmanagerpackage on your PC. You can read this now archived article explaining that issue https://web.archive.org/web/20180118130643/http://www.mibqyyo.com/en-articles/2015/09/16/ubuntu-android-installation-process-for-bq-aquaris-e4-5-and-e5/
@advocatux I uninstalled the modemmanager and still failed to flash my phone with the same error.
BTW, I can't open https://web.archive.org/web/20180118130643/http://www.mibqyyo.com/en-articles/2015/09/16/ubuntu-android-installation-process-for-bq-aquaris-e4-5-and-e5/
@Kelvin-Cheung i just tested the link and it worked for me with Firefox on Mint
Tried copying the article but it was confusing with bits missing. Can try again later if needed.
This post is deleted!
Still can't access it. Maybe I'm blocked indeed.

@Lakotaubp @advocatux Thanks!
I followed jamieweb's way to modify ubports-installer(https://www.jamieweb.net/blog/installing-ubports-ubuntu-touch-on-the-meizu-mx4-ubuntu-edition/#fixing-the-failed-remote-unknown-command-error) and got UT installed on my MX4 finally!
This latest method is proved to work and should be topped.
Many thanks to @jamieweb and @AlainW94!
@Kelvin-Cheung Good your all sorted then enjoy
@Kelvin-Cheung Thanks, I might try this I have an old MX4 stuck on the Cannonical Ubuntu Touch I have had issues simply connecting it up to any computer but have had some success with the USB connection more recently, but no luck with installing UB Ports UT.
@halucigenia Tape the phone and cable down when you get a connection. The Mx4 can be a right pain to maintain a connection.
