This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.0_20190528 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:
  • CE, FCC and TELEC certifications added
  • WhatsApp photograph problem solved
  • Watermark added in camera
  • Improved camera effects
  • Auto focus added in recording video
  • Fingerprint recognition optimized
  • Percentage added to the status bar battery icon (icon changed to a horizontal image)
  • Japanese WiFi hotspot channel issues fixed
  • Default menu animation speed changed to 0.5x
  • New screen drivers added
  • Other minor bug fixes and system improvements


The system will show UMIDIGI_F1_V1.0_20190125 as Build number after this update but the real version is V1.0_20190528
FOTA version: UMIDIGI_F1_V1.0_20190125_20190528-1708

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 20190316 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.

Unfortunately I did the same.
Do you have any ideas how to do it correctly, not flashing whole new ...

I did Titanium backup and flashed the ROM , then restore and about an hour later all good.
Magisk works, Xposed works, happy so far.

Buenas tardes. En esta actualización esperaba encontrar resuelto el problema de la foto estero. Ya que en galería no se guarda el fondo desenfocado. Pero al capturar en cámara si. También el error en la aplicación de actualización de sistema, ya que descargado el archivo de actualización al presionar "actualizar", se cierra por completo, y también el menú de ajustes, apps y notificaciones, apps predeterminadas - se cierra abruptamente.
También me gustaría saber si lanzarán aplicaciones propias de umidigi como reproductor de música y vídeos, galería de imágenes y cámara propia de umidigi.

-fingerprint sensor works perfect now - better sensitivity
-I appreciate wider notification area, but icons should be just a bit bigger
-whatsapp camera works well now
-autofocus of recordings works well
-signal sensitivity is better
Good Job Umidigi!
ideas for improoving: more launcher customization, enabling lte CA (still is off - switch to On without effect) , camera optimization (better use of abilities of the camera sensor)
Regards

Fingerprint sensor still does not work well, for example, to log in to the paypal application and in others, still does not take the fingerprint.
- Good notification area, funny icons but they should be larger.
- camera - whatsapp works fine now- Alarme ringtone can't change.
"They took a quick shortcut from the NFC, fantastic.
Great job Umidigi, please do not let this phone die, keep up with the updates.

ideas to improve: - It should also be possible to modify the battery icon and modify the colors of the notification area (black, white, preset), as in oneplus.
- I would love to be able to put "Double tap to wake", it would be fantastic.- Turn On/Off Phone programe time to shut down or wake up.
- improve the camera;

best regards

please fix the autofocus library - the pictures only seems sharp , but in reality they are mostly out of focus. This fact is conceiled by the oversharpening camera firmware.

The focus only is correct, when you switch to the android szenemode night esp. with snap cam.
