This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V2.0_20181026 system software
for UMIDIGI A1 Pro

Flash tool operation is recommended to experienced users only. If you are not yet an experienced flash tool user, please carefully read the flash tool tutorial before proceeding, and strictly follow each instruction.

Except if an authorized or responsible expert directly asked you to do that,
never format the flash chip of your device or you instantly lose your warranty!

UMIDIGI A1 Pro receives all updates automatically via FOTA method. You need this tool only in case of emergency (if you've bricked your phone), if you want to apply a clean install or if you want to clear all root access and custom recovery to make your phone able to receive FOTA updates again.





Changelog:
  • Minor bug fixes

FOTA version: UMIDIGI A1_PRO_V2.0_20181026_20181026_1529


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SP Flash Tool
Resources:

Flashtool tutorial: http://bit.ly/SPFTguide

Extract the .rar file before use. The scatter file (MT6739_Android_scatter.txt) is inside the extracted folder, together with the other components


VCOM driver: Windows 10 already automatically can install it (if your computer is connected to the internet) or you can use this: MTK_Driver_Auto_Installer_SP_Drivers_20160804.exe


Here's an optional solution to start the flashing process on your UMIDIGI A1 Pro if the standard method doesn't work.
It's especially useful if your phone is bricked or is stuck in bootloop
1. Connect your UMIDIGI A1 Pro to USB.
2. Start the flashing process with the Download button in the flasher app.
3. Press and keep pressed the power button of your phone until the flashing process starts (red bar appears at the bottom of the app window), then release it. In this process you have to keep the power button pressed for about 10 seconds.
4. Wait until the flashing process finishes.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OTA (recovery) update
Manual (local) OTA update method instructions
  • Copy the downloaded .zip file to the internal memory of your phone
  • Go to Settings --> System --> About phone --> Wireless update
  • Tap the 3-dot menu button in the top right corner and select Local Updates
  • Brows for the ...update.zip file and select it
  • Select INSTALL NOW, then OK in the Warning window. Your phone reboots into recovery, the update gets installed, then your phone boots into Android. Your updated system is ready to use.

Update file for manual OTA update: >>>>> UMIDIGI_A1Pro_V2.0_20181026_update.zip <<<<<
It can update version 20180920 only

Optional method (in case if the manual OTA update gets stuck): Install from recovery
You need a microSD card (with at least 4GB capacity) installed in your phone!
  • Copy the ...update.zip file to your SD card.
  • Press and hold the volume-up and power buttons together until your phone restarts in the boot selector mode. It needs about 10 seconds or a little bit less if your phone was already powered off.
  • Here you can move with the vol-up button and select an item with vol-down. Select Recovery.
  • Your phone boots into Recovery and you see a lying android figure with an exclamation mark in red triangle on its tummy + 'No command'.
  • Press and hold the power and vol-up buttons (in this order) together, then release them to call the recovery menu. Now you can move with both volume buttons, and select an item with the power button.
  • Move to ‘Apply update from SD card’ and select it.
  • On the next screen brows for the update file and select it. The updating process will start and needs a few minutes to be finished.
  • After a succcessful installation you can read the ''Install from SD card complete.'' message and the receovery menu is available again.
  • Select 'Reboot system now'. Alternatively you can perform a factory data reset here by choosing 'Wipe data/factory reset'


Kind request from users:
Please report any kind of new issues you experience after installing this update only if you've already flashed this ROM with SP Flash Tool in Firmware Upgrade mode. In rare cases a FOTA update can cause more or less serious malfunctions but that means only the update process went wrong, not a badly developed ROM. An updated stock ROM, especially related to the basic functions will not cause any new issues but will solve some of the existing ones.

Would it kill UMIdigi to give an option for a user to TURN OFF screen wake for notification?

UMIDigi is alienating half of the user by only listening to another half of the user.

I was fine with A1 pro not having notification light. What i don't need is the screen waking up every single time a notification comes in.

But the update keep waking my screen even if there is no VISIBLE notification (like Whatsapp)

Please, let the developers know, give us a BUTTON to turn off screen wake upon notification.

No one want Do Not Disturb as a workaround, that is not good enough.

I'm feeling that UMIDigi developers never use UMIDigi phone to understand.

bencebacsi, What errors solve this OTA? "Minor ug fixes" it is very ambiguous

This is solved?

- every notification i get wakes up the phone
- The fingerprint sensor just keeps vibrating like crazy if it touches my pocket
- GBoard not found. gboard stopped and then I could not access it anymore, I disappeared. I tried installing from playstore and it gives me error 505.
- no gallery app installed

I await an answer

- It's a normal (intentional) behavior, not a bug. The screen turns on just for a few seconds but your phone still remains unlocked. Turn on 'Do not disturb' if you want to avoid messages to wake up your screen.
- The fingerprint scanner is sensitive to your skin. Turn your phone to the opposite direction, not facing to your skin.
- GBoard bug fixed (you might need to clear its data after installing the update)
- Galery and stock Browser apps are present again.

-That is not right. In the OTA of 20180601 and 20180525 that did not happen. It is not a problem to put the "do not disturb".
-The same as the previous point. In the OTA of 20180601 and 20180525 that did not happen and other users reported the same.
-Thanks
-Thanks

Today I'm with OTA 20180601 and none of the first two points happens, so if one version of OTA to another happens, if it's a bug!

Have you tried both OTA and see what I say? I think you speak without having tried.

I await an answer. Thank you

We can continue it forever but that wouldn't make sense.
- Many users requested to let the incoming messages wake up the screen, so we added. If that's really a problem for you, your opinion is respected, of course.
- There were issues with the sensitivity of the fingerprint scanner, so that has been adjusted. If you keep your phone on the table, in a case, a bag or in the pocket of your suit/coat/jacket etc., you won't have any issues. Don't keep your phone in the pockets of your pants or you easily can break it.

I'd want to make some suggestions:

- Fix camera lagging while recording on snapchat
- Replace all stock shit with gapps versions ( stock browser -> chrome, calculator -> play store version, clock, messaging -> messages, contacts and phone)
- If possible, remove some of unecessary google stuff (Photos, Play Music, Play Movies)
- Remove file manager or replace with something better (like FX)
- If possible, add AdAway
Also, is this phone getting Android Pie?

Thanks.

Seriously is this your answer to a customer?

My opinion for what I see is respected but not heard.

Honestly I did not expect the answer you just gave me.

I'm already seeing that other users are reporting the same as me, so I hope that our opinions aside from being respected will be heard, otherwise they leave much to be desired as a company.

Thank you
