Umidigi S2 have installed pure Android 6. There is no such "malware" etc.

Umi OS is protected against roots. System developers made such decision.

Thanks.
But this is not really informative. We kind of figured that out already, so can you please explain in more technical terms?
What did the developers do exactly? Write protected partitions? What protection scheme?

Thanks/Erich

Thanks.

Hi,
Yes, Efuse partition protection is applied, that makes it impossible to modify the raw data partitions, only the EXT4 partitions (system, cache, userdata) can be modified. Since Android 5.1 only systemless root can work, so that's not possible to root your phone if the boot partition cannot be modified. On Efuse protected devices non-certified (modified) boot or recovery images cannot be flashed.
However, the S2 is not a UMI OS device (no Efuse protection), so you can get root access with Magisk Manager, or you can use the CWM recovery + SU installer shared on the page linked by Marcin here some comments ago.

Thanks Bencebacsi for an answer that actually contains some information!
I don't have an S2, but I do have an S with UMi OS, which means your answer is useful to me!

Thanks/Erich
