Meizu Pro 5 devices that are sold with Android have a locked bootloader. Unlocking it is possible but remains a tedious process :
- Unlink the device from any previous owner's account by contacting Meizu's support with a photo of device's IMEIs and SN taken from the original box.
- Register the device with a Meizu account, this will grant you the access needed to unlock the device.
- Unlock the bootloader from Android security menu.
Once you have admin access read and follow instructions at the following UBports forum post : Meizu Pro 5 Flyme OS To Ubuntu Touch + modem Update + Fingerprint Function.
Alernatively, installing UBports' version of Ubuntu Touch is possible on devices that come with Ubuntu in the first place.
