UMIDIGI F1 (EU) V1.0_20190316 ROM - SPFT + OTA release

This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.0_20190316 system software
for UMIDIGI F1
(European version)


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:
  • Multitask manager (Quickstep) bug fixed
  • Light- and proximity sensor instability fixed
  • FM Radio frequency range increased to 76-108MHz
  • Bokeh mode last photo doesn't appear in the preview window bug fixed
  • NFC error bug fixed
  • SIP call interface bug fixed
  • Other minor bug fixes and system improvements

    Known issues:
    • The camera anti-shake feature is temporarily removed. EIS for video is still available.
    • This OTA update resets the APN settings, so you might need to re-edit them for a working mobile data connection.



The system will show UMIDIGI_F1_V1.0_20190125 as Build number after this update but the real version is V1.0_20190316
FOTA version: UMIDIGI_F1_V1.0_20190125_20190316-1139


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 20190301only

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 got this older Gcam APK working with the F1, don´t know if anyone wants to give it a try.

It´s for the Umidigi Z2 I believe but works on the F1.

Just don't buy the Umidigi products... They are just publicised that we are customer oriented company but actually they are not..bought 3 devices till now and facing issues in all of them.. Global network is just a myth and after update my both sims are not working now.. Even before that WIFi signals were very bad.
Yes they are offering good price but after sales they forget obout the customers.. My phones are not working and I have asked for the support.. First they told me to  make it repair from outside.. I have spend almost 25-30 dollars on that but nothing happen.. And when I told them this they told me we will compensate u only 20 dollars for 172 dollars phone.. Becuase u have used it.. Guys common i was not able to use it more then 30 days and facing issues from very first day and instead of making phone software stable they are offering me mare 20 dollars..
I have all in written and will escalate this everywhere to make all customers aware about this pathetic brand.. Guys better buy Xiaomi phone, oppo phones Samsung phones vivo phones.. Atleast they will offer service center and after sales service to u in your country..
Brands like UMIDIGI are here to just make a hole in your pocket for just showcasing good features but in real life Wireless charging is a myth.. Phone is heating, signals are not accurate, wifi is not working, camera is pathetic..
So at every aspect.. Phone is failed.. Ans most importantly after sales service is nothing.. So guys beware.. If anyone has any doubt I will show u the conversation I have the screenshot with me..

$20? That's generous! My seller offered me $10AUD to live with a phone that doesn't work. I agree with you, it's just not worth buying Umidigi. A $2000 iPhone works out cheaper than this POS.  Post time 2019-4-9 20:33

I really thought the F1 would have had another update by now.

The Umidigi mods/devs don´t seem busy with their support here, there is always hoping.

Hello.
Since the last update, the list of fast connections has been disappearing every morning. Why?
Is it possible to use the slow motion mode in the camera options?

@bencebacsi please tell developers to make things right. And do proper system info update. Not having proper display info in settings suck and rather real info is read by updater is a big joke. Instead of releasing new devices each 2 months focus on update and make your current devices stable. This is seriously a joke to umidigi?  They release a phone with bad software by default is not tolerated. Gather your team together and do proper tests before release

Not for me.. I have a Poco, a MiMax3, a MiPad4 and every week I have ota so I want ota every week  ...

OK, but if you want update every week you should buy xiaomi! But here is forum for Umidigi F1 not for xiaomi!! For me is update every week a little bit irritating. I prefer bigger changes and less updates. But F1 is pretty solid phone, but some launcher cosmetic changes, better focusing of camera, support of LTE CA and then will be perfect phone for the price. But I hope that someone from umidigi read our posts on which based they do changes in software.

with this update the phone is a bomb .. the mobile connection is a sliver ... now bencebacsi could you focus on f1 root permissions if possible?
there is no own possibility of root on umidigi f1 without unlocking the bootloader?

regarding root try: https://github.com/topjohnwu/mag ... ds/magisk-debug.zip

this is working with F1 (initial version of F1) should work on latest too.

Magisk 18.1 fails on unlocked bootloaders too i see so it's a magisk bug.

try patch with latest canary 18.2 linked above

Hello Ben,

Thanks for the update. I have installed it and encountered no problem but I have some questions:
- I see that RAW mode has disappeared from the camera app, was it voluntary? RAW was an asset for this phone
- did you apply any modification in camera treatment ? (to solve the blueish or redish issues)
- did you do anything to combine 4G frequencies (LTE+ instead of LTE) ?

Thanks

This update has broken something very seriously. After this update that I received last night, now ALL applications that show some list of items are constantly refreshing on screen, making it impossible to type or browse through the list. How can I post a bug report?

Here is more information:   

This update has broken something certainly seriously. After this update that I received last night, now ALL applications that have some list of items (Google keep notes, photo gallery list of photos, weather forecast, WhatsApp messages, list of songs in music app, anything) are constantly refreshing, and therefore the list gets reset to the first item, even if I am browsing through the list on screen.

It is also impossible to type text in Google Chrome, because the Chrome screen gets constantly refreshed, and my typing is erased (due to the screen refreshing).

It makes the phone impossible to use.

Reboot fixes the issue for about 50 minutes, and then the issue reappears.

Please fix this issue asap....    when can we expect a fix for this?

NOTE:   My phone does not have any 3rd party launcher, or any other customization of any sort.    The phone is as it came from the factory,  and it worked very well until last night, before the update UMIDIGI_F1_V1.0_20190125_20190316-1139 was installed via OTA on my phone.

After this update, I have had this forced screen refresh issue happen three times today already, which I fix termporarily (for a few minutes) by rebooting the unit.

Thanks.
