As an owner of Meizu M2, if you are bored with the same screen and things coming up when you open your device. If the whole process of using your device has become monotonous then what you need is a different ROM or in other words a different UI (User Interface) which will make your device look different and bring back the interest you are losing in it.
So, in this article you will see information related to a custom ROM ported from a different device, and as you can assume if it is taken from a different device, it will look different from the default Flyme OS which comes installed with your M2. Also note that this article is about the ROM and how to install it, so if you are just coming directly here then you need more information as there are many more things to do before you can get to this step, including rooting and getting a custom recovery. Through the article you will find links which will help you with all you need but some search from your side is also required.
Here are few links to help you out (includes other ROMs for Meizu M2):
- Flyme OS 5.0.1
- Cyanogenmod 12.1 on Meizu M2
- Installation Guide: TWRP recovery Meizu M2
- Custom ROM for Meizu M2: Stoke by Elephone P8000 firmware
The custom ROM we have here is for Meizu M2 (not for M2 Note).
Note: Install or Flash this ROM own your own risk as failure in flashing the zip correctly can damage your device i.e. brick it. Also as you move forward with this, know that flashing custom ROM voids the company given warranty.
- Ensure your device is rooted (Meizu M2)
- Install custom recovery (TWRP)
- Download the firmware
- Copy the zip onto your root
- Enter recovery mode (Hold power and volume + button together during the boot)
- Navigate to the location where you placed the zip and flash it
- Wipe dalvik and cache
The first boot will take much longer than usual so don’t get afraid or try to interfere with it, just wait for it to do its thing. Also if you sense that the device is getting hot or is getting warm, know that its normal and temperature will come down once the process is done.
