UMIDIGI Z1 V1.1_20170726 ROM - SPFT + OTA release

This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.1_20170726 system software
for UMIDIGI Z1

Flash tool operation is recommended for experienced users only. Do not use it if you cannot understand the whole process!
UMIDIGI Z1 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.






Changelog:
  • Optimized camera interface
  • Optimized camera PDAF focus
  • Displaying MEID removed


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

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

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 Z1 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 Z1 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_Z1_V1.01_20170726_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 in recovery mode. It needs about 10 seconds or a little bit less if your phone was already powered off.
  • Here you can see a lying android figure with an exclamation mark in red triangle on its tummy and ''No command''.
  • 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.

Hello.
I did all the thing you said in the Optional method (in case if the manual OTA update gets stuck): Install from recovery but when I enter in the boot selector mode he says to me that there aren't commands and I can't do anything.
What should I do?
Since I upgraded the screen of the phone gets black and I can't do anything. I tried to restart the phone but it happens again.
Please help me because I got the phone yesterday and now I can't use it.

Hi,
I've updated the tutorial to fit this model perfectly  Please read and follow the instructions again. There's no boot selector mode, you were already in recovery.

Hi.
I did all the thing again but the screen turns black as before. I did a factory reset and install the room by settings. I'm not having any problem by the moment. I will write you again with the news in a week if everything is fine.
Thanks.

This is what happened to me also


I got an upgrade of about 94 MB and then regretted it


But I will try to revert to the update that I accepted before I can not use the device

At that point press the power button and keep it pressed, also press the volume up button, then release both buttons and you get the recovery menu.

I am running this version but am seeing several issues:
- reboots while the phone is lying around doing nothing. This means I can not be called anymore as the telephone part is waiting for the SIM card PIN code
- freezing wifi on AP switch.

when is a new verion of the firmware expected?

After updating, activating the option to change display color, the display after a few seconds becomes white and does not see anything. It does not solve even restart. Must be reported to factory data. Solutions?
Thank You
