This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.0_20190214 system software
for UMIDIGI Z2 Original version

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 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:
  • Camera focus issues fixed
  • Slippery Gesture customization added



The system will show UMIDIGI_Z2_V1.0_20180622 as Build number after this update but the real version is V1.0_20190214.
FOTA version: UMIDIGI_Z2_V1.0_20180622_20190214-1711


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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_20190214-1711_update.zip <<<
It can update version 20180622_20181016 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 hadn't "extreme" problems with the camera focus as other users described but it was always really hard for my phone to focus close objects. This seems now fixed/fixed more and only fails in a "normally acceptable" frequency.

A problem here on Z2 Original using FOTA.

Installed FW: UMIDIGI_Z2_V1.0_20180622_20181016-1652,
found update UMIDIGI_Z2_V1.0_20180622_20190214-1711/209.06 MB.

Download seems going fine to 100%, then start decompressing but it jumps from
20% to 62% and immediately phone reboots reporting an error with dead robot,
then phone reboot again with old firmware.

NO Root, NO SD.

I had the same problem when 20181016-1652 was released, fixed few days later
using FOTA as before. It seems to me an error on compressed file structure.

Hi, flashing may help but first just try to 'Reset Wi-Fi, mobile & Bluetooth' in 'Settings --> System --> Reset options'.

Hi, The OTA update file is double checked and it works perfectly. Go to 'Settings --> Apps & notifications', tap the 3-dot menu button in the top right corner and select 'Show system'. Scroll down to the Wireless Update app, select it, then Storage and CLEAR DATA. Now try to download and install the wireless update file again. Otherwise you can flash your phone with SP Flash Tool.
