This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V7.01_20170123 Android 7.0 firmware
for UMI Super

Flash tool operation is recommended for experienced users only. Do not use it if you cannot understand the whole process!
UMI Super 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. Always flash this ROM as 'Firmware Upgrade', not 'Download Only' if you are upgrading an Android 6.0 system!

Changelog:
First final release

Known bug: Fast charging still unstable



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SP Flash Tool
Resources:

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

>>>>> ROM: 20170123_c239v55_kw_u1_no-DB.rar <<<<< - Extract the .rar file before use. The scatter file (MT6755_Android_scatter.txt) is inside the extracted folder, together with the other elements


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 UMI Super 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 Super 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 either the internal memory or the SD card of your phone
  • Go to Settings --> About phone --> Wireless update
  • Tap the 3-dot menu button at the top right corner and select Local updates
  • Brows for the ...update.zip file and select it
  • Tap Install now, comfirm the process with OK and wait until the process will be finished

>>>>> Update file for manual OTA update: UMi_Super_V7.01_201710123_update.zip <<<<<

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. It needs about 10 seconds or a little bit less if your phone was already powered off.
  • When your phone is restarted, immediately release the power button but still hold the vol-up button until 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 recovery menu is available again.
  • Select 'Reboot system now'. Alternatively you can perform a factory data reset here by choosing 'Wipe data/factory reset'

i stay optimistic about umi in general and the super and nougat in special. android v7 seems to be causing quite some troubles - but not for umi alone, look at samsung (especially germany) and htc (they stopped rollout 3 times!!!) so the problems are there but that does not say that umi is not competent enough to solve them properly. (also keep in mind the low price you got powerful hardware in exchange)
also, silent and long work usually means good things, it could well be we not only see the problems fixed, but also new features introduced.

I like my UMI great but version 7 does not work well. My problems encountered:
- the battery discharges quickly especially with the blutooth
- the fast charging does not work anymore, with a case to check, it goes from 5 to 7 to 12 volts and then back to 5 volts and so on.
- when the phone is switched on for more than 5 minutes, the upper part of the phone heats up and the battery discharges abnormally.
- the camera's problem is still not solved, the recorded picture is always too dark.
It is a shame that the UMI team does not work more on its drivers and firmware because I believe that the quality of the hardware is correct in view of the price of the phone.
I have not tested the gps because I do not use it ...
I think I will go back to Android 6 while waiting for UMI to resolve the problems of version 7.

Flashing 20160923 with SPFT solved the screen problem.
After that I flashed 20170123 with SPFT and ...



Make sure you have activated developer mode before doing any of this. Do that to enter about your phone. now tap several time on build number and developer mode will be activated. Go to your settings and you will find Developer mode at the bottom. Activate the toggle, make sure OEM unlocking is ticked and also USB debuging.


Unzip the recovery.img in this file: https://forum.xda-developers.com ... 887803&d=1474986279 and flash it with SPFT (only tick recovery and make sure that you are in the 20170123 Scatter text, you need to browse the recovery.img file to where you put it on your computer.)


Now when you successfully have TWRP on your phone enter recovery mode with your phone first powered off. Press power button and volume up at the same time. When you see the Umi logo let go off the power button but keep holding the volume key until you see TWRP boot up. Have this file on your sd card before you do this process. Download it from here: https://download.chainfire.eu/10 ... -20170114223742.zip

Now go to install and locate the supersu zip file that you put on your SD card. After flashing it just rebot your phone and that's it, your phone is rooted.

Edited by LiBOSS at 2017-2-26 19:20 \n\nI have found following bugs in Android 7 ROM.

1) I have changed notification and SMS melody. It is working normally but if I have SMS application opened and recieved SMS after that is played ROM default melody. If SMS application is not running then everything is OK and my melody is played.

2) I select a contact "A" using search in contact application. Leave selected contact details. Using phone normally. After that I want to select different contact "B" also using search in contact app but app shows me the previous selected contact "A" and I have push back button and select contact "B" once again. This does not happened every time but it really happened.

I have made update using OTA zip file and wiped data and cache in recovery.

Comments

Yes, I too have noticed the SMS notification sound reverting to default if it is open when the SMS is received. Odd behaviour, but no show stopper, really.  Post time 3 Day Before

Reboot your computer and try again. If you get that error message at the very beginning of the flashing process, you should try to use another USB cable or port.

Hi,
It's not been removed, but it has bugs causing an over all slow charging process. The engineers are working on the solution.

Sorry but no, it's not possible. It's a problem to be resolved, not a task to be processed. Maybe tomorrow, maybe at the end of next week.

Please let me know who is your contact at UMi. Nobody? Then please select your words before writing them down and don't claim something that you know nothing about. The engineers are working on the next version for UMi Super and MAX simultaneously.
The UMi Super is a 9 month old model, it's still in production and its software still receives updates

Hope you can understand the 2 words: ''uploading yet''. The files (both SPFT and OTA) will be available in a few hours. First the SPFT.

You're correct in your assumptions. It's the first final release!
