UMIDIGI Z2 V1.0_20180726 ROM - SPFT + OTA release

[Copy link]
Post time 2018-8-1 09:40:26 | Show all posts |Read mode
This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.0_20180726 system software
for UMIDIGI Z2 Original version
Click on the picture for an enlarged view

Flash tool operation is recommended to experienced users only. Do not use it if you cannot understand the whole process!
UMIDIGI Z2 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. Moreover, flashing with SPFT is the only option to repair (replace) damaged system software.





Changelog:
  • Minor bug fixes related to the camera
  • Minor bug fixes related to the status bar
  • New touch panel driver added (fixes the issue when no touch screen control if the phone is not held in hand)
  • If you have only one SIM-card installed, the system will not ask to choose the preferred SIM card

The system will show UMIDIGI_Z2_V1.0_20180622 as Build number after this update but the real version is V1.0_20180726.


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


Extract the .rar file before use. The scatter file (MT6763_Android_scatter.txt) is inside the extracted folder, together with the other components


VCOM driver: Windows 10 already automatically can install it (if your computer is connected to the internet) 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 Z2 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 Z2 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 the internal memory of your phone
  • Go to Settings --> System --> About phone --> Wireless update
  • Tap the 3-dot menu button in the top right corner and select Local Updates
  • Brows for the ...update.zip file and select it
  • Select INSTALL NOW, then OK in the Warning window. Your phone reboots into recovery, the update gets installed, then your phone boots into Android. Your updated system is ready to use.

Update file for manual OTA update: >>>>> UMIDIGI_Z2_V1.0_20180622_20180726-1454_update.zip <<<<<
It can update version 20180622_20180711 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 (the boot screen is displayed), then immeduately release the power button and keep only the vol-up button pressed until your phone boots into recovery. 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.

I confirm, this is exactly the same issue. You have a quick notification SIM PROCESSOR issue, and a few seconds later the phone reboot.

My phone restarts alone several times a day. It can't keep the music I set as ringtone and I have to set it again at every start. I have sometimes a SIM PROCESSOR notification without any mobile network during a few seconds. I would like to love my phone but at this time, no way :-(

Something is sure : if mobile network and wifi sensitivity doesn't improve at the next rom update, Bye Bye Umidigi.

Hi, Do you have random reboot issues only after updating your phone? If yes, please flash it with SP Flash Tool. Please copy your ringtone files to the internal memory, and set them as ringtones loaded from the internal memory.

I've already done the process with SP Flash to upload the last ROM provided by support and it keeps restarting itself.
This is not acceptable for a phone at 235$. I can't use it for now

Could you please ASAP find a solution and provide a new ROM or ROM Stock update ???

Hi,

It still appears that only one camera works currently, any idea when we can expect an update that enables both cameras to work when required?

The camera handling is still in development but unfortunately I can't tell you a specific date when the secondary camera will have a better application.

Hi,
Offline videos can be extended to full screen but online videos can't. The developers are looking for the reason.

EDIT: When will we get android Pie?

4K videos cannot be played at 4K resolution. Are you using the YouTube app or playing the videos in browser?
Please share the links of some lagging videos to let us check them.

Well all videos on 1080p60 have framedrop issues but here are a few examples of what i usually watch and on all of them i have frame drops

The drops happen in the youtube app, i don't know if they happen in browser as well as i didn't try it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v= ... hannel=3kliksphilip
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v= ... hannel=Dinoswarleaf

Here's just a few but again, i get frame drops on any 1080p60 video

I can provide logs too if needed

Also the drops happen in landscape mode, portrait mode is ok because the viewport resolution is smaller.
