How to root Flyme 5

I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Pleasedo some research on your own before performing this!
YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

This topic will explain you, how to root FlymeOS 5 Global.


  • SuperSU
  • AppCenter

Root your phone

The UserCenter and AppCenter you may download here. Link: [APK] Important Stock Applications from Flyme OS 5
I suggest you to install the AppCenter, because it allows you to install the AppCenter becaues it gives you the pro version for free.
  • Install the UserCenter
  • Launch the UserCenter and log in to your name@flyme.cn account
  • Go to Settings
  • Scroll down and click on Fingerprint and security
  • Scroll down and click on Root permission
  • Accept and hit OK
  • Phone reboots

Congratulation you now successfully rooted your phone.

Install SuperSU

So now it's time to install SuperSU. You don't have to do it, I just like the app and always do it right after rooting the phone.
Link: PlayStore SuperSu

It's important that you have version 2.46. Don't update, or you may not be able to udate the SU binary.

How to setup SuperSU

  • Install SuperSU v2.46 from the PlayStore
  • Launch SuperSU
  • You will be asked to update the SuperSU binary, select CONTINUE
  • Select NORMAL
  • Allow SuperSU the requested root permission.
  • Read the Warning
  • Select remember my choice and click Still Allow
  • Wait and hope for the best
  • Reboot when asked to do so
