Meizu pro 5 without any os.
So, i unzip the archive and i put it on the phone to be restored, is it?
@bontemps I have to go to bed now as I wake up at 02:15 am tomorrow.
If there is a problem, download the Flyme unlocked bootloader zip file I sent you the link, flash it with TWRP, then reboot to recovery, wipe it there all clean, and go again to Restore and restore the backup you downloaded previously. Then reboot to bootloader and flash Ubuntu recovery, reboot and it should be all ok.
OK, thank you very much.
@bontemps Have you succeeded? Let me know, please.
Actually, i have another problem, i can't mount the data partition and the internal storage has a 0 mb value.
So, duckduckgoing i see that it may be a corrupted /data partition.
And some people have fixed it with fastboot format userdata. I tried, it didn't work.
the error was: Formatting is not supported for file system with type ''.
When looking man fastboot i see this: fastboot format[:[fs type][:[size]] partition.
So, fs type, maybe ext4 but the size?
@bontemps Just try to flash the Unlocked Bootloader zip file that I send you the link. It should work.
I am relay not used to the smartphone world.
So, for me it is more magic than anithing, because i don't understand in depth what i'm doing.
So, when you say to flash the Unlocked Bootloader,
Does it mean: fastboot flash bootloader Unlocked_bootloader_pro5_update.zip
@bontemps No, just flash the zip file. Do not extract it, just put it to your externalSD and click INSTALL
Do it from within TWRP recovery. No fastboot this time.
The Unlocked_bootloader_pro5_update.zip is a flashable zip file, it means can be flashed with TWRP recovery. It's whole Flyme Android firmware.
@bontemps If you manage to flash it, reboot it and let it run, it takes up to 5 min to start FLYME, then go to Developer options, enable Usb debugging.
Reboot to recovery wipe it in TWRP recovery (don't worry, it's safe), reboot to bootloader, flash Ubuntu recovery, reboot to recovery and try Ubuntu-device-flash
So, it is flashed, it boot in fastboot and TWRP.
But the problem is that i always can't mount the /data partition.
So, i think i can't restore the backup(same situation).
I tried to reboot it and it went wrong, it restart in cycle, enter TWRP, in TWRP they are some process runing on a window and it restart the same.
@bontemps Wipe it inTWRP again, and flash it again.
I can't access TWRP, it is booting in cyrcle.
So maybe i should reflash TWRP.
Actually, i tryed to reboot it using TWRP.
And now, it continually boot, enter TWRP, and reboot immediately, i have no time to use TWRP meanwhile.

@bontemps we need to fix the partition.
Go back to fastboot and type: fastboot -u
It suppose to format partition before erase, so try this first and then try to flash TWRP, and then that update.zip
@bontemps You may also try this command, just copy and paste:
fastboot update update.zip
(where ''update.zip''is your renamed Unlocked_bootloader_pro5_update.zip placed on your PC in your Home directory)
@bontemps Herelink text is a little bit more about fastboot have a look.
Also in fastboot type fastboot --help and it display all the options.
Maybe another wipe would help.
Give it a try. I had a similar situation with the phone and was panicking that I bricked it, but in the end I sorted it out. I remember that I done : fastboot -w and also fastboot -u and one of them helped.
@bontemps Any luck so far???
