This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.0_20180912 system software
for UMIDIGI Z2 Upgraded and Special Edition
Click on the picture for an enlarged view

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 Upgraded and Special Edition receive 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:
  • Improved face recognition
  • APN paarameters updated
  • G-sensor calibration bug fixed
  • 'Power save manager' is disabled by default
  • Other minor bug fixes


The system will show UMIDIGI_Z2_V1.0_20180622 as Build number after this update but the real version is V1.0_20180912.
FOTA version: UMIDIGI_Z2_V1.0_20180622_20180911-2053
Please note, this version is fuly compatible with the Z2 original version but later updates may cause compatibility issues


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 1: >>>>> UMIDIGI_Z2_V1.0_20180622_20180911-2053-1_update.zip <<<<<
It can update version 20180622_20180806 only

Update file for manual OTA update 2: >>>>> UMIDIGI_Z2_V1.0_20180622_20180911-2053-2_update.zip <<<<<
It can update version 20180622_20180903 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.

Hi bencebacsi,

The OTA update says :
Update file for manual OTA update: >>>>> UMIDIGI_Z2_V1.0_20180622_20180911-2053_update.zip <<<<<
It can update version 20180622_20180903 only


As the version 20180622_20180903 was not deployed in OTA form, I didn't installed it and I'm still at version 20180622_20180829-1744. Does it mean that I can't install this update?

Also, will it be deployed with the Wireless Update app, because I've searched with the app and no new update was found?

Thanks in advance.
Best regards

Edited by MJPP at 2018-9-19 20:10 \n\nKnowing that this post was firstly added on the Z2 Original ROM page, I need to ask the same question as above, I and quite a lot of other users that installed the UMIDIGI_Z2_V1.0_20180622_20180829-1744, can we install both OTA updates present in this post without problem?

Or Umi will release an OTA version for the ones that installed the August version?

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately the last two ROMs were added to the Z2 Original section by mistake. If you flash an SE/Upgraded ROM on an original Z2, your phone will be transformed into an Upgraded Z2, so it can receive the FOTA updates as well. However, it is planned to add special camera features compatible only with the upgraded camera, so if you keep your original Z2 working as an upgraded one, after a later update the camera may stop working.

Thank you for the response. I'll keep the current version of the Z2 Original for now. Will we have an update in the next few days?  Post time 2018-9-19 20:57
