    Rooting M9

    Just for your info, M9 will be partially unlocked for root in EU version. Also, EU firmware will be incompatible with current devices and EU FW will work only on EU version of M9.

    So we early adopters, and indeed arguably beta testers for MZ, are going to be penalised - marvellous!


    Come on Meizu - you can do better than that - how about a version for the rest of us, why not remove the Chinese language pack if you want (for whatever mysterious reason) to discourage your domestic users from rooting their phones.....

    If this report is verified, then I think it highly unfair.

    It is my belief that we have helped considerably in the development on the EU version, particularly in terms of network compatibility etc. We study each new release, and report the bugs in a quick and succinct manner, so I think we deserve not to be shut out of the fruits of this development path.

    EU version will have slightly difference, so there must be another device. Mine is still unrooted but before get final version (all now, what I have are testing), I will get also rooted device.

    Things can change, this is only first info, so don`t panic Next week I should know more, so I will share with you. For now, nothing changes, EU SW still not finished, so use latest SW and enjoy!

    Well I hope that when they think about it properly, they arrive at a fairer decision.

    It makes no sense to relegate us to a second class of user-ship, as when they start marketing their new device in Europe, potential buyers are going to look to places like this forum for independent information. I'm sure they'd like people to read posts by users that feel well looked after, and who can comment on the actual software that their new platform will be running.

    I still don't understand why they want to differentiate between domestic and international markets, in terms of the rooting issue. Surely to physically alter the production model will be somewhat costly, so they must have strong reasons for wanting to do so.

    I thought that the Chinese were in actual fact more relaxed about such things, as my last phone was from China, and had no locks on its Android installation at all.

    It all seems to be verging on paranoia.....I wish we could get a clear reasoning for this policy.

    Like I've said from the start, we've bought into prototype hardware. It overheats, it has a creaky back cover, and the ROMs have been dodgy for the first 6 months since release.

    Now that the phone is finally shaping into something decent, the rest of the market has gone dual core.

    This would be an utterly silly move from Meizu.
    Come on: EU people who have a Chinese M9 are the pioneers that Meizu needed so badly to gain their current knowledge for the EU market.

    If this is true, I urge Meizu to grant all of us a free exchange for an EU version of the M9.
    If Meizu insists, they're starting to behave like Apple or even MS.

    Now let's hope it's just a bad dream.

    EU version and our version will be different only by loader. So, HW will be the same, only has changed SW. Current SW are locked and there is no way, how to permanently unlock it (only temporary, and disabled in last versions). Locking of bootloader is on very high level. Once get news, I will share them with you again.

    So, does this mean that future FW updates will be compatible, just not root-able? I suppose the change of boot-loader means that the format of the updates will be different.

    In which case, why don't they just re-open the ginger-break exploit in the EU firmware? At least they would be being fair to everybody. Then if some bright spark at XDA manages to crack the existing loader, it is beyond MZ's responsibility. Either that, or how about opening temproot, and publishing the SW they use to create the current update.bin files?

    There are many fairer approaches to this, not just for those of us who want some kind of root access, but also to those people who just want to be able to view their M9s in their own language, have proper google-sync options, locale settings etc.

    Can you please bring these ideas to Meizu's attention as alternatives?

    Many thanks.
