This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V7.01_20170710 Android 7.1.1 system software
for UMIDIGI Z Pro

Flash tool operation is recommended for experienced users only. Do not use it if you cannot understand the whole process!
UMIDIGI Z Pro 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. Another reason can be if you experience unexpected issues after updating via FOTA.


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 official upgrade to Android 7.1.1 system
  • Random reboots after upgrading to Android 7.1.1 system fixed
  • The Dynamic Photo (3D) error if saved onto the SD card fixed
  • Dial error issue in Russian regions fixed
  • Speaker loudness issues fixed


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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: 20170710_g15v97_kw_u81_4m.rar <<<<< - Extract the .rar file before use. The scatter file (MT6797_Android_scatter.txt) is inside the extracted folder, together with the other components


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 Z 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 Z 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.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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: UMIDIGI_Z_Pro.V7.01_20170710_update.zip <<<<< It can update version 170605 only

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 in the boot selector mode. It needs about 10 seconds or a little bit less if your phone was already powered off.
  • Here you can move with the vol-up button and select an item with vol-down. Select Recovery.
  • Your phone reboots into Recovery and 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 receovery menu is available again.
  • Select 'Reboot system now'. Alternatively you can perform a factory data reset here by choosing 'Wipe data/factory reset'


Kind request from users:
Please report any kind of new issues you experience after installing this update only if you've already flashed this ROM with SP Flash Tool in Firmware Upgrade mode. In rare cases a FOTA update can cause more or less serious malfunctions but that means only the update process went wrong, not a badly developed ROM. An updated stock ROM, especially related to the basic functions will not cause any new issues but will solve some of the existing ones.

Wireless issue is same on 6.0 and 7.1.1

Edited by speedycvc at 2017-10-9 02:13 \n\nWireless issue is same on 6.0 and 7.1.1
screen and CPU gorvernor are really bad and generate battery drain.
I use DS battery saver to get more power.
with DS battery saver => 2 days of use
with original rom governor => 15 hours of use

Wireless enabled => fast charge doesn't work
Wireless disabled => fast charge work

Any release have same issue :
Camera bad capture ( noisy pictures )
Wireless is really drain full
Compass is not accurate
ghost touch screen => sometimes screen go crazy and open notification bar
may be more issues...

This phone have a really good hardware, but ROM is not really working good.
I used a lot of chinese phones since 5 years and umi (umidigi) have to recruit real dev to do better work.

I hope that Umi will be a wonder brand but if UMI create 5 phones by years... how can they do good work on any ROM and do real ROM support.

bencebacsi are you still alive?

Is very clear: not even bencebacsi already knows what to say to defend this pseudo company, which does not care at all for its customers.
Shameful, it's completely shameful.

Guy i have made an analysis of Umi update schedule for it's all models and foung a shocking result,  ...

Yeah I already bought new phone after my battery bloated - Xiaomi Mi5s and I'm really happy with it

I don't want to have anything to do with umidigi and mediatek
It's was a lesson that I'll always remember - don't trust these kind of companies

My friend, no one will give you an answer!

It's unfortunate, UMIDIGI for NEVER!

As I thought, I guess you have to buy another phone where patches are regular.

Thank you. Installed this rom and its way better and more stable. Only GPS is a bit slow and lags  ...

I'm beginning to prefer using this version. Battery life is better.

Hi Bencebacsi, do you plan to correct bugs with any updates? And if so, when? Thank you

Hi,
What bugs do you think about? I don't know about the status of the next update for this model (if any) and currently I can't ask about it since there's a holiday season in China. I can get further information next week.

Wait, that's it? How about better camera quality and fixing lagging Bokeh mode. How about adding better audio controls? How about lockscreen shortcuts controls? How about performance optimisations? How about other little things like adding more apps, I see apks for screencapture and pedometer yet no apps to use them, I would love to record screen... Please improve this phone

This update is not really an update, but a step backwards: camera quality, bluetooth connection, battery consumption worse than in 6.0.Maybe we will have a little more patience until the devs fix all these problems?

Thanks, UMIDIGI.

it's only been out less than a day, how can you test the battery? surely it needs a day or two to settle down, configure itself.

I'll reverse judgement for 3 days, cheers Ben for sharing the rom appreciated, I'll be happy if the rebooting stops :-) #EasyLife

Edited by wanabfishn at 2017-7-14 23:45 \n\nI'm going to hold off on this update based on s couple of comments above and also based on the fact that my Z Pro is working fine on the 0605 release. Thanks Umidigi for the update none the less. Shows you haven't forgotten the Z Pro users. Now waiting for the Android O release.

Do I also need to wait 3 days to see if the camera does better photos or my bluetooth headset syncs properly?
