Re: Meizu Android to UBports


No idea how the flashing from different OSs works, we only tested the flashing from Stock Canonical Ubuntu Touch, but afaik it also works from stock android, not sure about that. I don't have a meizu to test right now, sorry.

I enjoyed using (and donated to) Ubuntu Touch. However, now that UT is end of support (soon), I changed over to Revolution Remix (Android 7) <https://forum.xda-developers.com/meizu-pro-5/development/rom-aicp-nougat-12-0-unofficial-t3478872>.

I've since tried to flash the ubports image <https://wiki.ubports.com/wiki/How-to-flash-existing-ubuntu-touch-devices-with-Ubports-images>, but the RRemix sets up a weird root that doesn't seem to allow the flash to complete.

Presumably I have to flash the old beta recovery/Flyme version that enabled root?

Can anyone suggest what's needed to flash the Flyme beta (link, step by step process), then hopefully to ubports.
