Bought a used Edge with Mokee rom.
Flashed stock ZUI rom, but update app keeps giving message that device is root and update is not possible.

How to solve this? With Zuk Z2 Pro i can flash stock ZUI rom 1.9 and bootloader is locked again and ota works....

1) Use QFIL and flash Zui 2.3.079 ENG/CN
2) Once you have connected to WIFI. Go to settings>About Android. Then go back to homescreen. DO NOT CHECK FOR SYSTEM UPDATE.
3) When you are at homescreen it will show there's update available. 2.5.2xx Click download update. It will start Downloading. Once finish the download. Click into the notifcation it will show success download and ask for a reboot.
4) After reboot it will show update successful. Leave the phone on Wifi for at least 5-10 Minutes and see whether it has the notification for update or not.
5) If not, reboot your phone and wait for the update notification again.
6) Repeat the process until the latest update.

I have gone from 2.3.079>2.5.203>2.5.550>3.1.201>3.5.386 doing this way.

Flashed 2.3.079 with QFIL. There was an update coming OTA. But no more. Waited long enough en rebooted device several times. No more update is coming. Now it's on 2.5, Android 7. Just in case; bootloader was unlocked before. Your's too?

After one day a new update 2.5 was coming in. So maybe tomorrow next OTA is coming.
But i also can flash 3.1 and 3.5 as well. Will ota updates come in after that or do i have to update zip files with stock recovery as "update"?

I flashed 3.1.201 ST with QFIL, because this update was not coming OTA. After this rom has been installed the 3.5.386 ST came OTA immediately.
So, it's done now.
Thanks for your help bro.
