Nothings work. Facebook close all time. Whatsup and Viber response only if open it. Probably if I am using more applications it will be the same.

Swipe UP to unlock is much better. Just like stock android. Much preferred.

The Lockscreen swipe direction. Previously it was swipe to the right but after update to v1.8 it became swipe UP which i prefer.

Here is some feedback after a few days of testing..... There will probably be more to follow!

Positives....
Lock screen - Clock position more towards the center with a different font and swipe up to unlock. Nice one for that.
SuperSU - I rooted again with the same SuperSU file I used to root v1.7 and it was successful.

Negatives......
Fingerprint scanner - Just like v1.7 it Recognizes index finger first time but thumbs fail repeatedly.
Installing TWRP - It failed several times with SPFT but after extracting recovery.img from v1.8 and installing it I tried installing TWRP again and it was successful.
A second lockscreen full of ads appeared and i had to search hard to find the app that was causing it. I tried freezing 360 security via Titanium but it wouldn't freeze. Installed Adaway and rebooted and it was still there. In the end I froze Touchpal and it disappeared.
Camera is very dark, even in good lighting conditions or when i turn flash to ON. However, the pictures do get light once you take the shot.
Still getting random freezes and non-responsive touches on the screen.
Phone gets rather hot after 5 mins of playing a game.

To be continued......

A couple of years back I had the Umi eMax and I had zero issues with it. This device has been a huge let down. I will definitely not be buying a Umidigi device again.

Edited by Bleep at 2017-12-8 05:17 \n\n Edited by Bleep at 2017-12-7 01:27 \n\nGuys since UMIDIGI won't really give this device a clean OS, I made some tweaks and MOD for this ROM version.
Confirmed to work smooth after one week of test.

Here the steps if you guys want to tweak it, all you need is patient.

Preparation:
- This ROM
- TWRP for C Note 2, google it.
- Launcher APK, up to your taste but I prefer Rootless Pixel Launcher 3.1.

Now here the steps;

1. First you need to flash the fresh 1.8 ROM via QGDP or SFPT
2. Flash TWRP directly after you finish step 1, no need to start the phone yet
3. Enter TWRP by pressing vol up and power button, tick the only option in Russian before you start.
4. Change the language of TWRP to English by selecting the 3rd options on the right side and pick the globe icon.
5. Now go back to the main menu, pick MOUNT, tick the System.
6. Connect the phone to PC, copy the launcher apk to your phone storage and rename it to QK_LauncherAbroad.apk
7. Go back to TWRP main menu, pick ADVANCED, in the menu pick FILE MANAGER
8. Go to your /external_sd, click the launcher file, move/copy it to /system/priv-app/QK_LauncherAbroad, overwrite it.
9. Tweak
- Now from file manager go to /system/app and delete these folders:
Umi_v8_28Aug
BY_3RD_360MobileSecurity
BY_3RD_Dcshare
BY_3RD_quicktouch
BY_3RD_TouchpalKeyboard
QK_3RD_GaoDe_NetworkLocation
QK_BlackMagic
QK_LogSystemAbroad_wm
QK_PersonalAssistScreenAbroad
QK_PowerMaster360Intl_V3

-Go to /system/priv-app and delete these folders:
BY_3RD_AvatarMasterAbroad
QK_Antitheft
QK_AppSecurity
QK_Cleaner
QK_CloudSyncAbroad
QK_SafetySpace
QK_TransferAbroad

-Go to /system/presetapp and delete all the apk inside, you can put any apk like chrome, whatsapp, etc inside this folder so it will be preinstalled every time you do a factory reset.
-To remove that ugly browser just go to /system/vendor/app and delete MtkBrowser

10. Restart your system and enjoy a nearly stock OS feel almost without any UMIDIGI craps.
(Optional re-flash stock recovery if you want Factory data reset work)

They could easily make this phone better by replacing UMI OS crap with stock Android (or removing all the craps above) but they choose not to, from the OTA bricked phone debacle to almost zero support, I'll make sure this is my last phone from UMIDIGI and I won't buy any from them anymore.

Can you use TWRP? If you can then just replace the 360camera folder with the one from 1.7.

I can't understand how umidigi made such a good smartphone with so terrible os. Bugs are too much. Need clean android. Need to be able to change the stock launcher. Don't want to receive commercial messages from apps like touchpal etc. etc. Battery life is not even average for this hardware and 4000mah capacity.The most important thing for now is to release update to fix camera in low light conditions.
