This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.0_20190228 system software
for UMIDIGI F1


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 F1 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 color balance issue fixed
  • Camera bokeh mode algorithm updated
  • Front camera max resolution is set to 16MP
  • Photos app broken pop-up menu bug fixed
  • APN settings updated
  • EngineerMode added
  • Proximity- and Light sensor issues fixed
  • Other minor bug fixes and system improvements

Known issue:
  • The multitask manager crashes if you have a third party launcher set as the default home app. The next update will fix it.


The system will show UMIDIGI_F1_V1.0_20190124 as Build number after this update but the real version is V1.0_20190228
FOTA version: UMIDIGI_F1_V1.0_20190124_20190228-1908


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 F1 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 F1 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 --> --> Advanced --> 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 20190129 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 found bugs.
It's known issue of multi task function.
So I use pre-installed launcher.
But on multi task function, when I swipe from down to up, app drawer appears on screen.
I think that this is bug.
So could you tell me whether this bug is fixed ?
Thank you.

Wi-Fi 5GHz still only sees channels 36-48, but cannot connect to them, on 52-64 and other channels there are no problems.
I also noticed a very weak signal level of Wi-Fi - other phones catch much more networks.

That's still not the case. Please check the settings of your router or try to connect to a different router.

Ever since the update:

- I can no longer use a 3rd party launcher. After the update, clicking on the home "Square" button results in a "Quickstep" error.
- There is no way to disable quickstep or uninstall it.
- The new update does not respect the security permission of "Always use this launcher" the one I choose.
- When my car is connected to the F1 via bluetooth, even though there is not a call it will automatically stop my music and connect as if there is a call but it is a ghost interruption.


Requests:
- Please fix the security permission for the camera so that you can open it without granting "microphone" access.
- Please allow the removal of the google search bar widget from the home screen.
- Please add a software button to disable mic & camera at the home buttons for increased security. Id like to feel safe that my phone is not being used as a spy tool when I am not using it and my conversations are being listened to.

Thank you,

- GPS points backwards constantly - open map, point north. BUG: The icon points south.
- Plugging in Power and headphones at same time BUG: Creates crazy interference
- Images are duplicated in photos, creating multiple low resolution versions (see screenshot below)
- I can't send images via whats app, they just hang on the upload icon
- Weird purple colour glitch with camera and video
- Slippy/Sloppy gestures - kick you back to the home screen when typing because the active area sits over the space bar making it useless (Could be fixed with a 1px focus area)
- Multitask/recents doesn't work with launchers
- Light bleed along bottom of screen that seems to be getting worse.

Photos issue:

I'm returning mine to Amazon as the above issues make the phone unusable.

It's a real shame, this could have been a great value phone, but there are too many bugs and too few and too slow updates. And the update I've received since purchase have just caused more issues rather than fix them :/

Hi, I have the following issues:
- Can't see recent apps on third party launcher.
- Low wifi signal.- Low volume on incoming calls.- Bug with the recent apps and try to close an app by swipping up (see image). Captura3.jpg
And, not a bug but, this device doesn't have ARCore support? Sad about that.

When we can get an answer (update) about this errors?

Thanks in advance.
