  • Hello,

    Thanks for the tutorial.

    How to back up photos before “clear data” and update?

    I have bootloop after wi-fi Flyme updating…

      • Dear Eddie,

        How can I put phone into download mode?

        I did the following steps:
        – I had Flyme 4;
        – one evening I’ve decided to update Flyme to 5 via Wi-Fi;
        – everything was going alright, but after I’ve received bootloop (constant booting system);
        – I’ve downloaded latest update from the official site, connected phone to PC via recovery and tried to update the system. Recieved the same bootloop.

        Now I’m sitting and really don’t know how to get photos from the phone (there is my 1 year daughter ).

        I understand that the best way is to “clear data” and update the system via recovery. But I want to take the photos before…

        Could you help me, please? Should I try to install Flyme 4 via recovery?

          • If you are not able to access the files please follow the following method
            Download latest firmware from here-
            Copy the file to the recovery folder (the one you found when you entered the fastboot mode)
            Now boot into the recovery mode by, after powering off the device,
            press and hold the Volume Up + Power button for a short while.
            Now update the device. Once updated you will reboot to the new OS without loss of data
            Please keep in mind this takes around an hour, so be patient.

          • Am I right that it’s the same as I did already:

            – I’ve downloaded latest update from the official site, connected phone to PC via recovery and tried to update the system. Recieved the same bootloop.


          • Have you been patient enough?
            Give it around an hour to update if its still in the flyme boot image. Flash the update again. after which if it still doesn’t work you might need to clear wipe the memory

          • :((((

            Maybe should I try 6 Flyme beta?
            In service center I received recommendation not to update to Flyme 4 after 5. It may cause “blue screen’.

            Dear Eddie, no variants at all?

        • Dear Eddie,
          Thanks for your efforts. One more question from me. If I downgrade I would still have possibility to wipe and install any upgrade? I’m worrying 1) to delete the information; 2) totally brick the phone.

          For your understanding… The problem exists because on the telephone there are many important photos for me (1 year old daughter). So, I need to take the photos first and then wipe and install software.

          To say the truth, it’s crazy to understand that no possibility to take information from the telephone after crooked installing process.

          I thought that there are plenty of software that allow to do that.

          • Dear Eddie,
            Could I update soft with “clear data”? Maybe it deletes only apps and settings, not photos / video?

            P. S. Of course, all the information is on internal memory, not on SD card.

          • I will explain what has happened to your phone now.
            Your device does not have a working firmware to function the device.
            The flashed ROM is corrupted (not because the file you downloaded was wrong or had an issue but because the flashing process just went wrong.)
            What can you do?
            Since you need the files inside there is now way to get it in the current situation of your device. Why?
            Because the firmware is what helps you to access the drives and makes most of the things in a device work.
            What can you do to get the files back?
            Download the ROM (Make sure you are downloading the Indian variant) if you had got the device from India.
            Now flash the ROM multiple times over and over again (thrice is good enough)
            after which you have to leave it idle for few minutes (Leave it for 45 min and don’t look, that’s important :p)
            If that doesn’t work either you have to do a clean wipe

          • Hi Eddie,
            The good news for me – “clear data” doesn’t delete media on the phone. Just wipe apps and their data ;-).

            Thanks for your help! I appreciate that.
