This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.0_20190515 system software
for UMIDIGI F1 Play
(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 Play 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:
  • Fingerprint sensor unklock bugs fixed
  • Status bar display issues fixed
  • Japanese WiFi hotspot channel issues fixed
  • Camera drivers and effects updated and improved
  • Max back camera zoom set to 10x
  • Default launcher animation speed set to 0.5x
  • New screen drivers added for second gen devices


The system will show UMIDIGI_F1.E_V1.0_20190125 as Build number after this update but the real version is V1.0_20190515
FOTA version: UMIDIGI_F1.E_V1.0_20190125_20190515-1811

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 Play 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 Play 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 20190425 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.

Memory leak is still there - can't multitask (ie go to recents and click on an app, instead of it instantly resuming it'll reload) more than 2 or 3 apps after a few hours use (after a reboot) due to the memory leak.

I've just grabbed a mtk log and will submit a bug report now, as it's by far the biggest problem with the phone and almost makes it unusable.

Hi,

Can you please add option for the slippery gesture to lock it in one place (near the chin e.g.)? It bother me in a panoramic view in apps like youtube and heartstone were those slippery gestures from the botton to top are responsible for other activities such as putting cards on the table or showing a list of films. In addition, slippery gestures placed close to the edge of the chin is easier to reach by the thumb in landscape mode.

Thank you in advance.

I submitted the bug report so curious to see if they acknowledge it, or even better, fix this issue which makes the F1 Play behave as if it has 1.5GB of ram instead of 6GB.
There's a bunch of reports of the same bug over on the F1 ROM thread, so it's a common issue with all F1 and F1 Plays, and instead of messing with the camera software, which is perfectly fine, they need to fix this..

I've tried voice calls again - tested by calling my voicemail, it's prefectly fine on mine (though I only send/receive a few calls a year).
Maybe there's a faulty batch of phones...
