Hi everyone.

I'm new here, sorry if I'm missing some forum rules... Please correct me if so.

Thanks to wze1537 I've got Root on my MX5 with Flyme 7.8.7.24 beta.


Steps:


  • From your computer, download the file from wze1537's post named "flyme and supersu.zip" (sorry, I cannot attatch the file by myself).
  • Extract file named MzAccount.apk and copy it to your device. The supersu file is not necessary by now.
  • On your phone, locate and install MzAccount.apk. This will downgrade your current Meizu Account version to 5.6.0 (current mine is 6.3.2).
  • Now, you have an old, non-working version of Meizu account. If you try to open: Settings - Meizu account, it starts but suddenly stops. That's right.
  • Go to Settings --> Fingerprint & security and you will see Root permission. It lets you enter but also does not work. That's ok, next step.
  • Go to Settings --> Apps, and under All tab scroll down until you find "User Center". Tap on it, and click on Restore. This will revert to the version you had before the downgrade.
  • Here comes the magic!!! If you go to Settings --> Fingerprint & securitiy, the Root permission is still there!!! And now it works ;-). It will ask you for your Meizu account password, and the phone will reboot.
  • Now you are root!


Hope this help you. It has saved my day!

Please, comment your model and firmware and if it works or not.
