Flashing latest stable on Meizu PRO 5 failed



  • Hi I have just tried to flash latest stable to my Meizu Pro 5 using this command:

    $ sudo ubuntu-device-flash --server=http://system-image.ubports.com touch --device=turbo --channel=15.04/stable

    Failed to enter Recovery

    As it can be seen it resulted with a screen with error saying ""Flashing failed. Contact Support" in few different languages.
    As a result I can boot to fastboot, but normal restart stops at screen with "MEIZU powered by ubuntu".
    Can I somehow recover it?



  • I see the command I entered is not complete.
    I have flashed a new recovery on fastboot mode.
    Then I followed with complete command:

    $ sudo ubuntu-device-flash --server=http://system-image.ubports.com touch --device=turbo --channel=15.04/stable --bootstrap --recovery-image=./recovery-turbo.img

    And it's back to life.
    Unfortunately I have wiped it with this. But it's good to wipe it from time to time :P



  • Hi struggled again with this today.
    I wanted to switch to RC channel. The switch on the phone settings doesn't seem to have any effect. It switches back itself to stable.
    So looking into the wiki page (https://wiki.ubports.com/wiki/Release-Channels), I tried this command:

    sudo ubuntu-device-flash --server=http://system-image.ubports.com touch --channel=15.04/rc
    2017/12/07 11:25:26 Expecting the device to expose an adb interface...
    2017/12/07 11:25:26 Device is |turbo|
    2017/12/07 11:25:26 Flashing version 12 from 15.04/rc channel and server http://system-image.ubports.com to device turbo

    And it failed! I was left again with not booting phone. Only fastboot was responding.



  • I tried several times installing rc or stable channel from scratch but continuously failing with ""Failed to enter Recovery"

    $ sudo ubuntu-device-flash --server=http://system-image.ubports.com touch --device=turbo --channel=15.04/rc --bootstrap --recovery-image=./recovery-turbo.img
    2017/12/07 13:11:27 Device is |turbo|

    Failed to enter Recovery



  • After several unsuccessful tries I have installed TWRP. Wiped the device. Then installed "recovery-turbo" again.
    At the end I have installed RC channel with this command:

    $ sudo ubuntu-device-flash --server=http://system-image.ubports.com touch --device=turbo --channel=15.04/rc

    I have read on another topic that I should not use "" --bootstrap " option. Anybody knows why? Why it is there in the documentation?

    (sorry for answering myself, but I think somebody else might learn from my experience while installing UBPorts on Meizu Pro 5)
