How to install Meizu FlyMe OS on the Nexus 5

FlyMe OS is a heavily modified Android ROM developed by Meizu that has now been ported to the Nexus 5. Based on Kit Kat 4.4 the UI of FlyMe seems to be based on iOS with a huge attention to detail and with several unique features.

All though FlyMe has been made compatible with the Nexus 5 there are still many things that don’t work like Bluetooth, Sensors, NFC, Wi-Fi Hotspot and Camera, keep this in mind when installing.
