This is the SP Flash Tool release of the
V7.0 20170810 firmware
for UMI Diamond X


Flash tool operation is recommended for experienced users only. Do not use it if you cannot understand the whole process!
UMI Diamond X 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!
This ROM is made for the new production line of UMi Diamond X, it's not compatible with older versions. Please do not flash it if you ordered your device before 10th August, 2017




Changelog:
It's a basic version, no OTA update is provided
  • New LCD driver supported
  • New camera supported.
  • Compatibility with UMI London battery



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 (MT6737M_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 Diamond X 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 Diamond X 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.

I have successfully installed this ROM on a Umi Diamond X ordered in November 2016, using SP Flash Tool
