DO NOT INSTALL THE LATEST OFFICIAL OTA UPDATE!!!
Hope someone reads it, my phone is dead, too. What a mess. I am curious how Umi will fix that.

Never install unannounced firmware that has not been discussed and approved by users.  That is why I came to check here, and that is why my phone is not a brick!

Yes you are right, hopefully they do look at the forum first before updating. But I would say majority might overlook to refer to the forum before updating because in a way we do give the benefit of the doubt that UMIDIGI knows what they are doing.

I truly understand your stand, but at any point UMIDIGI should test the OTA updates before spreading it out to the market. This is an official  UMIDIGI OTA update that most crytals owners are dying to get to improve the functionality of the device.

Because if no one tried it, we do not know the result of the OTA. Rendering the phone useless of course is not acceptable be it for one or thousands of Crystal owners.

Nah, I totally disagree, that shouldnt have to be case.  Umidigi control their OTA updates (or at least should do) - users should trust that the updates coming through are tested and work.  it creates a very bad user experience if we are expected to come and check the forum everytime our phones tell us an update is available.
Unfortunatley this phone, and Umidigi, have failed in many ways.

this is the second umidigi phone i have had, the max, and the crystal, they have both had the same thing happen, umi sends out an untested update, it bricks the phone in some way, then they do nothing to remedy it. If i can help i am not buying another phone from them!!!!!

I have revived the OTA update this morning but something told me to check the website for change logs and i came across the problem that many of you are facing. So didn't proceed with the update.

Its so sad from the UMIDIGI to release an OTA update without even checking the update if its working or not (lol) its pathetic what kind of alleged promising company dose that seriously?????

Hopefully there will be an official announcement from the company soon with an answer and a solution for the many users who are desperately waiting for a solution.

Very smart comment. Before every OTA always check the forum and wait for the first person who gets a bricked phone and reports it.

Latest update just bricked my  phone.
Stuck in a boot loop.
Before you say you should of checked here first,i assumed that it would be OK as it is an official release from the manufacturer.
That's the reason it does it automatically isn't it ?
