Here's a situation: I've got Meizu 5 pro flashed with Flyme 6 which I flashed using TWRP recovery. I made few tweaks of the partitions (deleting and recreating and renaming) and then I wiped data.

Now the phone boots but as soon as it hits main interface I get error saying "internal storage is running out the process has been stopped" then it reboots and starts over, hits the message, reboots, starts over .... stays in this loop.

I still have access to:

  • Meizu's recovery mode (which is kinda useless if I can't access root directory)
  • locked fastboot mode (also little bit useless if it's locked)
  • recovery partition through USB

I also have MRT dongle for repairing Chinese phones but it doesn't seem to work unless the phone boots fully into Android.

What I can do about this ? Any help much appreciated.

  • Yes, I'm with you, but to flash TWRP onto the phone I need unlocked bootloader. My bootloader is locked hence I'm trying to think of a workaround.

  • When I run fastboot flash recovery recovery.img I get "Permission denied".

  • What flashing does ? It just extracts all files from an image or zip file. Correct ? Sorry this is the first time I'm playing around with internals of Android.

  • @alecxs I wasn't locked before. It got locked when I flashed it with Flyme 6.

The answer is no. The partition will show up as a root directory in command line interface. The same goes when trying to browse the partition with Python.
