This is an unofficial SP Flash Tool release of the
V1.0_20180201 Basic Edition (UMI OS V2.0.027)
system software for
UMIDIGI S2 Pro

Flash tool operation is recommended for experienced users only. Do not use it if you cannot understand the whole process!

WARNING!
If you have this version installed on your phone, your warranty might be voided according to your seller's policy! In case of a warranty return, we recommend you to flash an official stock ROM.
If you have this version installed on your phone, OTA updates cannot be installed. Basic Edition version OTA updates will not be provided. You can any time return to an official stock ROM (flashing only the system partition of the same version is enough) to be able to install factory OTA updates again.
If you flash the Basic Edition version for the first time, it is highly recommended to flash it in Firmware Upgrade mode (your user data will be erased) in order to remove the updates and saved data of the removed apps as well. Later updates can be flashed without the userdata partition.




Changelog (official update):
  • Optimized system performance
  • Minor bug fixes

Special features:
  • Replacable default launcher (once you set it as default, you have to uninstall your custom launcher to be able to use the system launcher again)
  • 'My Launcher' launcher replaced by Google Pixel launcher as the system launcher
  • Not system-sensitive custom apps have been removed
         List of removed apps:
         360 Security, FreeShare, Super Share, QuickTouch, TouchPal 2017, App Store, Intelligent Aggregating Page,
         Power Master, Avatar Master, Anti-theft, App Cleanup, My Launcher (system launcher), Phone Transfer



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SP Flash Tool (unofficial tool for flashing)
Resources:



ROM: >>>>> 20180201_g27v57c2k_kw_s82_Basic.rar <<<<< DB files included
Extract the .rar file before use. The scatter file (MT6757_Android_scatter.txt) is inside the extracted folder, together with the other components
After flashing this ROM in Firmware Upgrade mode, the first boot-up may take longer than normally (up to 5 minutes), please be patient.


VCOM driver: Windows 10 already automatically can install it 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 S2 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 S2 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.

What's your bluetooth issue? Maybe it's unique and hardware related.

My bluetooth sometimes disconnect from my Citroen C4 Picasso when I talk through auto's system and after 10-15 seconds connect again and I could talk again.
With my samsung level link it sometimes get no sound when music is playing. Then I should disconnect it and connect again to play.

Hello everybody!
I am also here just to share my great disappointment with my S2 Pro phone.
I have paid £234 for my device on UK eBay.
First of all, after the 1st start of the phone I was very dissatisfied with the speed of all operations with such a powerful hardware within, then the bloatware and lack of customisation, then with every 2-3 day self-reseting of the phone, then with being late to work one day, when the previously set-up alarm didn't ring in the morning, then with laging badly touch screen - everytime when the phone was doing even something so light like updating the apps in play store :/
Frustration started growing even more when I had to wait about 1minute for Facebook to start each time I accidentally went back to the main screen and wanted to open it again (had to wipe everything off from the ram, each time , then Facebook was opening quicker,but had to do it like every 5 mins after opening any link there). 6GB of RAM and one program cannot be stored there and opened after a few seconds? Even after adding all the most used apps to the white list, there was no satisfactory results.
I have decided to go for it and installed the latest (aboves) custom ROM, hoping for some improvement. I have been using it for a few weeks now and now I'm even more angry as I see on this forum, there is probably no more hope for a new ROM, as you (Umidigi) have probably started focusing on Z2 and other models, abandoning S2 Pro and its owners, leaving them with a unfinished OS :/
My observations after installing the last provided custom ROM which supposed to fix all the bugs and flaws:
- I CANNOT make/answer any phone calls with the stock Dialer - (laughter through tears as that's the main function of any phone) - had to install some paid and full of spam "Drupe" dialer, as none of the other dialers from play store were working by letting me to call or receive a call from somebody.
- Alarm still doesn't work properly, ringing much later than set-up or not ringing at if the phone reset itself f.ex in the middle of the night.
- Phone still resets/reboots itself, but every 5 days now in average.
- Facebook still doesn't stay in the memory and I have to use the same trick each time to start it
- Skype just notifies my with a LED about any messages or calls
- Touch screen still lags if there is even a small occupation of memory

That's about it for now
Frustration, Anger, Wasted money, time (installation of apps and different phone configuration over and over again), and for Umidigi - wasted potential of a great phone.
I don't know what to tell you UMi - sue that 360 OS developers? Ask them politely for a help to get rid of that UNFINISHED OS. Please! Do something to make the S2 Pro bug/lag/360 OS free! Do you really think anybody will trust you again and buy another UMi device or recommend your phones to friends?
I got tired after just a few weeks of using your phone and taken back my yr2015 ZOPO ZP952 Speed 7 Plus Phone, as it's much faster and has a great,stock,bare android system without any flaws!
My "About phone" screens look exactly like the ones on the first pages of this thread.
Ps.
If you have any ideas on how to make my stock Dialer work, please let me know here.
I cannot return my phone as the seller on eBay UK doesn't exist anymore.
Regards to all !
And UMi - please do something to help us!

Only one solution is that UMIDIGI should change out S2 Pro's to Z2 Pro for example.

I don't really understand why anybody would do that. If anyway it's not a defective one, this phone is still a usable device and in compliance with the advertised functions and features.

This things shouldn't be with phone for 340$...
1. Bluetooth disconnect with my car (when I'm talking).
2. Notifications aren't working when you didn't do something with settings.
3. Apps are cleared from RAM, never had more than 3GB used (what's for 6GB?).
4. Sometimes notifications shows when I unlock my screen, and sometimes with delay.
5. Alarm ring sometimes with 1-5 minutes delay (stock app).
6. Phone is slower than my wife's Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 (3GB, 32GB - 200$).
And many more.

Bluetooth disconnect with my car too. And with my bose soundbar, with erverything... I don't even try to put some music when i have people in my house. It's a shame -_- And no new roms planified...  Post time 2018-5-2 16:32

Does that mean: There isn't any more release; Umidigi stopped working on the S2 Pro?

I'm sorry but according to my current knowledge, the S2 Pro or any other UMI OS based models will not receive further updates since the UMI OS developer team doesn't work for UMIDIGI anymore.
On the other hand, I've been using an S2 Pro as my daily driver with about 160 user apps installed for quite a long time already, but my only issue is that, skype notifications don't appear, except the notification light. I'm using the latest basic ROM, of course.

Comments

I find this statement the most valuable content of all S2 Pro forum beside V1.0_20180201 Basic ROM. With Basic ROM and disabling as much QIKU apps as possible daily behavior is fairly decent.  Post time 2018-5-1 20:52

Hi admin,  I am having some problems trying to complete this process. Every time I try to connect my phone to my computer while being switched off I get a "The USB device could not be recognised" error message.  As a consequence, the Flashing tool does not really start the flashing process when clicking on "download". I am running Windows 10. I have tried with the Mediatek drivers installed and uninstalled. I have tried re-installing the mediatek drivers. I have even tried the alternate flashign method explained in the first post of this thread. Namely:
1. Connect your UMIDIGI S2 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.
And that does not work either.
All of this I have tried using two different c.type USB cables. Nothing.
If the phone is switched on, then it connects just fine and I can open it as an external drive.
I am running out of options here. Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

Edited by jarda.p at 2018-4-10 00:53 \n\nTo UMI admin:
Do you know, what would be the best for us? Unlock the phone for the root option, and the community would advise with what you probably can not solve. I do not believe that your technical support resolutions of the shortcomings will ever come to us. I have convinced myself with the model Plus, that I have owned so far...
Enable root and release codes to increase device popularity. This is an age-old practice. Or release the pure Android 7. Or is it such a big problem? I don´t think so. The locked phone is OK, if it does not have a faults, but it´s not this case. This phone has great hardware parameters for the money, but is really depreciated by software...

Comments

I agree with you. If it possible to remove bloatwares and change the Launcher or rooted without doing flash, it'll be perfect because the hardware is excellent.  Post time 2018-4-10 01:58

Why Android security patch level is from November? In previous version that was the same.

Ben, why it's highly recommended for first flash with basic ROM to firmware upgrade? I used Download Only and not cleared userdata partition with 20180117 ROM and soft is good (only clearing apps from RAM and notifications not work like it should).
Will it be the same when I flash firmware with Download Only option and do factory reset?

There's no noticeable difference with the new firmware But it is easy to flash without loosing your apps ect ect,(Select download only in the flash tool & uncheck the user dater tab at the bottom)

I'm having the same bugs with notifications skype,facebook messenger notifications never come on the phone

Facebook app will only load 1 out of 10 times if your lucky and if it does open it can take over 2 min to open

all happen on the official and Unofficial rom

I just highly recommended, it's not an obligatory to flash the basic rom in firmware upgrade mode for the first time. Some of my tests showed system instability after flashing it on a full rom in download only mode, but that doesn't always happen. The too strict RAM management and the notification bug of the SystemUI app (that manages the notification bar) is generally an issue of all ROM releases, it's not related to the basic edition. Hopefully once it will be fixed.

I'm sorry but I don't know further details about the minor bug fixes. If you are already familiar with spft, it needs just a few minutes to update your phone without risking your existing user data.

Only the notification bar suffers from bugs but with proper settings you can get at least sound and LED notifications of each app.
1. Go to 'Settings --> Permission Management --> App startup management' and make all of your messaging apps allowed. Also add them to the 'Screen-off cleaning whitelist'.
2. Go to 'Settings --> Battery' and select 'Regular Power Saving' mode. Also open the 'Active apps after screen lock' page and make your messaging apps selected.
