This is the QGDP + SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.09_20170818 (UMI OS 2.0) system software
for UMIDIGI S

Flash tool operation (either SP or QGDP) is recommended for experienced users only. Do not use it if you cannot understand the whole process!
UMIDIGI S 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.

WARNING!
Flashing this ROM on any other model will permanently brick your device, flashing the original ROM that fits your device will not be possible anymore!
Please make sure, double check that, you are working with a UMIDIGI S smartphone before starting the flashing process with this ROM!

Here's an optional solution to start the flashing process on your UMIDIGI S 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 S 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 --> About phone --> System update
  • Tap the 3-dot menu button in the top right corner and select Local upgrade
  • Brows for the ...update.zip file and select it
  • Select Restart now. 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_S_V2.0.022_V1.09_20170818_update.zip <<<<< It can update version 170726 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 reboots into Recovery and you see a lying android figure with an exclamation mark in red triangle on its tummy.
  • 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 the 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 sdcard 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.

Thanks. This solution works also for all the apps that are not sync (gmail, twitter, hangout etc...). I can now use the phone properly.
Nevertheless this is a shame that those apps are shutdown by default when the screen is off.

There is too much apps already installed in UMI OS (Power master, Quick Touchb Avatar Master etc....). What is even worth is that there is advertisments in some apps like Powermaster and also got a pop up for installing a game from another UMI app.

The launcher is really inefficient.

Please come back to a simpler version closest to the pure android.

I already reported the launcher change issue earlier multiple times, so hopefully something will happen. The Polish translation might need a longer time to be improved.

Please optimize the polish language (many options are not translated, Dialer, Contacts, Camera App, etc.

I would like to ask if there is any chance that Umidigi S is getting/has root available since you were talking about rooted device?

Chance is present but the root access is not officially supported. As soon as I find a solution, I will publish it here on the forum.

If it's going to take a long time it would be nice if developers make an open translation project.
Is that even possible from dev side?

Hi,

The UMI OS is complicated because there is too much of preinstalled apps that are redundant with google apps. For example I installed apps via the Playstore and the same apps get updated by the UMI Store. All of those preinstalled app are not uninstallable this is a pity because I don't need all of them.

Currently the most pain in the ass situation, is that all of my apps and mainly GMAIL are not properlly sync. The emails are downloaded only when the app is open or I get sometimes the notification 40min later. I don't have this problem on my other devices even on my former Umi plus.

Hi,

I'm reporting all such issues and even more (for example the contacts app cannot access google contacts, what is a major issue), so hopefully something will happen.

But i think we can do this. We can choose one or two maybe three users who's willing to help us do a better translate in the umi os phone.
I did this for russain users for umidigi c note2 in the version 0725. But there are many users via ota update his phone get bricked and also the company cut short the ota, so there are not so many russain users see a new translate in the umi os phone. But a new update for c note2 will be soon. Let's wait)
