Recovering Meizu M5 after unsuccessful firmware

There is a small introduction. While on your meizu m3 mini, the bootloader is not unlocked, it will not work to flash some regions (for example EMMC_BOOT. where the preloader is) using this instruction. So for severe cases, such as data corruption in EMMC_BOOT and others, this instruction, at the moment, will not work. Also corrected (patched) images will not be sewn.

1. Download SP Flashtool with our scatter file.
2. Install drivers from the VCOM Drivers archive folder
3. Run flash_tool.exe, the developer recommends launching it by right-clicking and selecting “Run as administrator”.
4. Select Download-Agent. DA_PL.bin, Scatter-loading File. MT6755_Android_scatter.txt (on the scatter3 screen, we do not pay attention, just the old screen).
We also click on the Location column opposite the section that we want to flash (in the recovery example) and select the appropriate image. I can’t upload the images themselves, as everyone who could turn the body over probably has it, and besides, it’s worth taking images from the version of the firmware that is on the body.

5. I note that it is probably worth dumping what is now flashed on the body. Backup has never harmed anyone
Here are added lines that almost completely overlap the flash, for example EMMC_USER will be backed up to the cache section.
If someone wants to backup a specific section. add the line with the Add button, double-click on the added line, choose where and with what name we will save the backup, then in the newly opened window select the region from which we want to backup, from which address to start and how much read byte. This information can be viewed in the scatter file (fields region, linear_start_addr, partition_size)
– Next, click the Read Back button. The flash drive enters the device standby state.
– Take the switched off phone, hold down the Vol button (this is necessary) and connect it to the computer’s USB port. A flash drive will load DA onto the body, after which information about our chip will appear under the black smart picture.
If this did not happen, and the error information was displayed, re-read the above again, you definitely did something different from what is described here.
6. The backup is done, it’s time to sew. We go back to the Download tab and here we do all the same manipulations as when creating the backup, namely:
– click the Download button;
– take the switched off phone, hold down the Vol button (this is necessary) and connect it to the computer’s USB port.
FlashTool will start the firmware and upon completion you will see such a notification

All. The firmware was completed successfully, you can try to flash the meizu m5 note smartphone using the standard recovery according to the instructions above.
