This is the SP Flash Tool release of the
V3.01_20161209  Android 7.0 firmware
for UMI Plus

Flash tool operation is recommended for experienced users only. Do not use it if you cannot understand the whole process!
UMI Plus 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!
It is an Android version upgrade. Even if you install this update via OTA method, your data will be reset to factory defaults.
Always flash this ROM as 'Firmware Upgrade', not 'Download Only' if you are upgrading an Android 6.0 system!

Changelog:
First final release


Resources:

Flashtool tutorials: UMI Forum or androidxda guide or YouTube guide (you can google a lot of other solutions and guides)

ROM: 20161209_c239v55_kw_u3.rar - Extract the .rar file before use. The scatter file (MT6755_Android_scatter.txt) is inside the extracted folder, together with the other elements




Here's an optional solution to start the flashing process on your UMI Plus if the standard method doesn't work. It's especially useful if your phone is bricked or is stuck in bootloop.
1. Connect your UMI Plus 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.

Edited by DeepAnger at 2016-12-17 12:35 \n\nHello,
I just registered to comment on this update and on this phone. I have received it 10 days ago and I installed the N, newest version this morning. I noticed that Turbo download isn't there anymore (I did not use it) but it now has call blocking for messaging and phone which is a big plus (no pun intended). The GPS did not work at all here in western europe (in both versions), until I fixed it (root required) using FasterGPS. It's able to fix in less than 6 seconds in the house with 14 satellites. Oddly enough, TWRP from the previous version still works so does SuperSU. I've just started to play with it for a few hours but so far so good. I'll report if I find something significant. I must add that I'm quite pleased with the phone and the software (I hate bloatware). Keep up the good work.
Thank you.

Hello, could you detail how you "fixed" the GPS? Many of us would be very interested in doing this. Thanks in advance!  Post time 2016-12-17 19:30

Please, try to believe that if these drivers work properly at millions of users under Windows 10,  ...

well,probably same as you claim that gps and 3g/lte on UMI PLUS and UMI SUPER are working fine for million users and that only few  have a specific problem in their phones...
if you are serious,please guide me in detail how exactly do i have to install the drivers into my window 10 (latest update) so that i (and some others who have same problem) will be able to install the rom per your instructions.
thanks

Bencebacsi, you not understand the situation. Umi says 2 days ago that pushed OTA update. How hard it can be what we says here?

Guys there is no different between OTA or SPFT actually SPFT is more safe as phone is switched off and incase any battery faults ROM will not corrupted and you will not brick you device.
I could understand your frustration but this is my official state.
Please understand and flash with SPFT.

This is not completely true. If I had problems with driver installation, with the use of the SPFT tool or, why not, I don't have a PC, OTA is better than SPFT

I can't confirm your issues as who doesn't have any computer at home in those days. If you have any problems with drivers you need just read tutorials. But be realistic there is no big issue download driver and use SPFT.

i have installed just right now with SPFT.

But 1st point is for @bencebacsi
I cant understand, why you are not able to provide working Windows 10 drivers (signed). I had an very old netbook with Windows 7 to get the Preloader driver installed. I have tried so many solutions to get it installed on Win10, but no chance. This is very frustrating

2nd request
You provide at Prelaunch time, that the device will get an (and fore sure NOT an SPFT) update for Android N. Ok you have time until 24 of december, to release it via OTA. With your way of updating, the customer always has to backup/restore manually or lost his data. Google is able to do it a way smoother. No data gets lost. Your Android is very close to Vanilla, so why it is not possible.

3rd is a question
If i will root my device and install a different recovery, I ll be able to get future updates via OTA?

Thanks in advance.
Best regards
