UMIDIGI Z2 Pro V1.0_20181024 ROM - SPFT + OTA release

This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.0_20181024 system software
for UMIDIGI Z2 Pro


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 Pro 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:
  • In-call microphone issue fixed
  • Proximity sensor issues fixed. Manual calibration added to both Factory test mode (Dial *#*#33#*#*) and to Settings --> Display --> Advanced
  • ''Charging rapidly'' (or its equivalent in your language) notification added to the lock screen when the battery is being fast charged
  • Touch panel (TP) driver updated
  • Slippery Gesture navigation bar added (Settings --> Smart Assistant --> Buttons)
  • Old APN settings restored (no info why) - you might need to manually change your APN settings
  • Other minor bug fixes


The system will show UMIDIGI_Z2_PRO_V1.0_20180823 as Build number after this update but the real version is V1.0_20181024
FOTA version: UMIDIGI_Z2_PRO_V1.0_20180823_20181024-1600

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SP Flash Tool
Resources:

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

Extract the .rar file before use. The scatter file (MT6771_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 Pro 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 Pro 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 storage 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:
It can update version 20180823_20180926 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 first the vol-up button 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 can't even run MTK Engineering Mode. Says "Cannot find Engineering Mode App - Meidatek chipset is  ...

They removed the MTK App from rom with the First September Update for security reasons (seems) .

So the only way is do as i explained, if you need it do as i said.

If you want to root the device in a safe way (no data loss & no update errors), you must do this:

- Install Magisk APK
- Copy boot.bin (from .rar firmware you can find in the first post) to device memory or sdcard
- Run Magisk & Press INSTALL then select edit/patch boot.bin
- Save the patched_boot.bin to pc
- Run SPFT load scatter file then select/check only BOOT and give the patched:boot.bin path/file (DOWNLOAD MODE, no need upgrade mode)
- Start & connect poweroff device
- ENJOY, after a new update you will be again unrooted,redo with new boot.bin the steps.


PS: with root i also restored the MTK EngineerMode apk

Edited by ricalv at 2018-10-27 15:28 \n\nHello everyone,A new update has come out, and it seems some of the problems have been addressed at last
After the update to UMIDIGI_Z2_PRO_V1.0_20180823_20181024-1600, this is what i have seen.
My proximity sensor is working again, at last.
The phone signal has increased, in places where in previous firmware I was getting about 3 bar I'm now getting almost full signal, great improvement.
All security access are still working.
VoLTE works fine, signal is par to other phones side by side to this one full LTE/4G signal and showing volte sign on screen.
Volte settings having to be inserted manually to get it working.
VoWifi works perfect, also settings inserted manually as it doesn't auto provission.
WiFi 5Ghz works but is still very unstable.
WiFi 2.4Ghz connects but is very unstable and loses connection very often.
I have found out that if you go to wifi settings, wifi preferences and disable network rating provider the wifi is a bit more stable, but still has to be fixed.
And now to the still most disappointing part of this phone the   quad lens camera , ha ha
The Camera works, that's about it, I don't think the camera software included with the phone can even handle the secondary camera as if you cover the lens there is no difference in the photos, the 8mp secondary camera does nothing or is not activated by the software.

Still the WiFi connection is very unstable, after unlocking my phone the WiFi connection on a 2.4GHz band looses connection, this is not happening if you are connected to a 5GHz band. This happens every time I unlock my phone and use the 2.4GHz band.

Help! My proximity sensor doesn't work anymore since I've done a calibration. The screen stays all black during the call. I've tried to calibrate it 3 or 4 times. I guess I'll have to resest my phone one more time. :-(

Tryied manual OTA supdate via update in system and via SD card in recovery. Failed both ways.

SD card Recovery States an error saying
Verifying current system...
E1004 System partition fails to recover
E:error in /sideload/package.zip (status 7)
Installation aborted

Comments

If you have installed a custom recovery, replace by the original one before OTA upgrade. If you have rooted the device, unroot first. Else, SPFT is your friend.  Post time 2018-11-3 00:16
