Flash tool operation is recommended to experienced users only. If you are not yet an experienced flash tool user, please carefully read the flash tool tutorial before proceeding, and strictly follow each instruction.

Except if an authorized or responsible expert directly asked you to do that,
never format the flash chip of your device or you instantly lose your warranty!

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:
  • Random reboot issue fixed
  • Camera can't connect bug fixed
  • New camera UI
  • Other minor bug fixes
  • No EngineerMode - removed by Google's request, might not be available anymore. You can get the MTK Log and YGPS apps with *#*#07206633#*#*

Reported and confirmed bugs:
  • Search box in the Settings menu crashes - The next update will fix it


The system will show UMIDIGI_Z2_V1.0_20180622 as Build number after this update but the real version is V1.0_20180829.


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

Flashtool tutorial: http://bit.ly/SPFTguide

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_20180829-1744_update.zip <<<<<
It can update version 20180622_20180726 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.
Flash tool operation is recommended to experienced users only. Do not use it if you cannot understand the whole process!

I agree that we can not expect high end device in this price range but still they need to make the firmware so that the device does function as expected and advertised!
Umi seems to allocate all development staff and pushing out new hardware and flagships as soon as possible and this means a lot off unhappy customers will line up.
A very shortsighted business model !

Please, please, please fix the camera focus problem.  I really like this phone, except that I cannot take any pictures if what I'm taking a picture of is more than 4 feet away.  The camera simply will not focus on anything farther away than that!  I know that the phone is capable of focusing because as it's trying to focus the image gets nice and clear before the software decides that it is not correctly focused.

Hello Umidigi developpers, I follow your job since the Z pro: some updates and when a new flagship i ...

on this one, it was running perfectlly (except yellow borders on the screen when displaying a white color..and a poor camera app) but if you want to be really a good phone brand, you must improve your test benches before launching updates! screen rotation is KO, bluetooth issues (disconnecting connected watch) that provocates an "android auto" error (black screen). please turn back BT drivers on the first issue , don't follow all google updates when you can read they bring issues... this phone is beautifull, you did a good job.. please don't let a bad rom bringing a poor experience! and bring long term security updates! thx

Super cette mise à jour
SIM PROCESSOR notification au démarrage
Erreur dans la barre de recherche des paramètres
Pas de rotation d'écran
Et je n'ai pas tout essayé... Même si le téléphone est beau, pas cher, le mieux serait qu'il fonctionne bien.

Super this update
SIM PROCESSOR notification at startup
Error in the parameter search bar
No screen rotation
And I have not tried everything ... Even if the phone is beautiful, cheap, the best would be that it works well.

Edited by STEPHTHOUVENOT at 2018-9-1 21:04 \n\nGuys, the only way to update this last version of the ROM is to flash with SP flash tools. It doesn't work in OTA.

I have flashed and it works well. After 24 hours use,  I'll give my opinion about this update.
