I 've just recently bought secondhand Pro 5, unfortunately I got this dreaded error "You have not logged out as firstname.lastname@example.org. To use another Flyme account, please log out properly first."
I tried to contact the seller and he had purchased the phone from previous owner and don't really care about using flyme account and suggested me to skip Flyme account screen.
The reality is I need Flyme account to gain root for me to restore apps from my old phones with titanium backup.
Reading one post in this forum that suggest someone with the same situation as myself, I contact the email@example.com to unbind my phone to firstname.lastname@example.org.
My phone was originally came with global firmware, before I request the unbind process I was eventually able to flash my phone with chinese firmware 220.127.116.11A to test the nougat build for Pro 5.
When Meizu CS informed me that the unbind process was finished, I managed to login to flyme with my new account in chinese firmware.
To my surprise when I revert back to global firmware my phone is still bound to email@example.com account.
I then emailed back about this situation to Meizu CS, and they check that my phone is chinese version and should be used with chinese firmware.
I'm totally confused whether Meizu have separate database to keep phone binding status for both international and chinese phone?
I intend to use my phone with global firmware cause I don't read nor write in chinese, even changing the weather to my country/city is chalenging as I can't even read/write it.
Can someone suggest me on how to unbind my phone in global firmware, or I have to live with this condition?

How long did it take them to unlock it?
on A firmware if you get root rights use morelocal2 so you can use you language
Only settings will be in english

They were very responsive, got unbinded in a day.
Where can I get morelocal2?
Google play store
with root you can use a root uninstaler and remove chinese apps or adb shell
I got a reply i send them invoice and pics
so now i wait
as for your thread question.... i am not sure but i read somewhere on xda that others had the same problem when going from A firmware to G
A firmware gets updated G is on android 5.1 and i am not sure if its going to be updated in the future

Need to prepare your phone box, sticker attached on box with S/N and IMEI, they will ask you that photo and also the flyme account login screen showing error.
