my first post here so hoping for some help please. I have two Meizu Note 2 phones, one of which is unused so better battery etc. The problem is that I would like to upgrade the flyme o/s to the same as on the other phone. I have downloaded to my pc and transferred it to the phone in question. But that phone will not recognise the upgrade. Any tips please? TIA. O/S in question is Flyme

    Usually the phone itself downloads the update, unless you have a boot-loader unlocked phone with custom recovery you can never install an update manually on the phone itself. Manual updates on stock devices are only possible via USB and a connected PC using the vendors update tools. – Robert Oct 17 '19 at 10:54
  • Thanks for confirming my thoughts. It transpires that this phone has a China ONLY flyme o/s installed that can only be updated by a flyme a/c holder with access to a China Mobile (or similar) number. So it has been returned to seller. – Dave Barber Oct 18 '19 at 11:49
  • Looks like Flyme has some special way to update their phones. Did you follow the update manual? forum.flymeos.com/thread-18-1-1.html – Robert Oct 18 '19 at 13:04
