Thanks for your answer, that's what I've already did.
But the phone isn't rooted with these ROM.
{:3 ...

As I said devices with Umi OS can't be rooted.

Maybe it's a good idea to explain about Efuse partition protection? Thanks/Erich  Post time 2018-1-11 11:54

so s2 can be rooted and s2pro cannot be rooted
and we are all stuck with this well built amazing umiOS?
u gotta be kidding me.

its always good to try to make something, but dont use us as a beta tester

in fact if i knew you must stick with UmiOS, i definitely would not have bought this phone.

I really cannot recall since when an Android phone will ever claim that they can never be rooted?

Rooting devices is illegal and is voiding warranty.

Rooting a phone, illegal ?
Rooting a phone is under the responsabilty of the user,it's not illegal at all.
Please MarcinP don't write that kind of thing, you know it's not true.

HAHAHA come on! "Rooting devices is illegal and is voiding warranty"
First of all is not illegal, but lets go to the link MarciniP is posting in every thread as the solution for the terrible UmiOs, even in this one.
http://community.umidigi.com/thread-16560-1-1.html
This is the basic edition, unofficial rom, MarciniP suggests in every thread, just read the first lines in red
"If you have this version installed on your phone, your warranty might be voided according to your seller's policy!"

Tell me again why rooting is so bad.

Is illegal from warranty point of view.
Will void warranty in simple words.

First of all is not illegal, ...

When you root system you will get access to hidden files etc but you need also remember that this move will also allow some off apps to access to your hidden files which can damage your device or steal important data.
Of course you can protect your device but you need know how ( I suspecting that you know well this ).
I am not saying that you shouldn't root your device but I can't recommend this either.

Yes, I think these are the right words.
And I understand that it can void the warranty.

When I (we ?) ask about root, I know all about the possible consequences to do that.
But you have to know that without rooting my device, I can't recover most of specific applications data of my old phone.
Without rooting my phone, I can't tweak it the way I want, it's a big part of android world, even if most users don't need that or don't care about that.
Ignoring this fact will make umidigi rejected by the community, and the community is the beating heart of Android.
Most manufacturers (samsung, huawei, Yota ... just take a look at the TWRP Team page) let us the choice to root our phone or not.
Perhaps it voids the warranty, and so ? That's my responsabilty. If I brick my phone, I won't make umidigi responsible for that.

I think locking your system isn't the better way to make umidigi a good and respected manufacturer in the android world.

I like a lot my S2 pro, but today, can I recommend someone to buy it  ?

Hey, am i violating the law by rooting my device? if so, the law of where? is FBI gonna fly over and arrest me?

Be careful when you use words like this, since you do not speak on behalf of my country.

Secondly, voiding my warranty is my issue, thank you for your reminder, I am sure 95% of the root users are well aware of that.

But do not take away our rights to root.
