This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.0_20190715 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:
  • New camera app and features added (Night mode, AI scenes detection, FaceCute etc.)
  • Stock ringtone library updated
  • Alarm bug fixed
  • Corrections in Russian UI
  • Other minor bug fixed and system optimized



The system will show UMIDIGI_F1_V1.0_20190124 as Build number after this update but the real version is V1.0_20190715
FOTA version: UMIDIGI_F1_V1.0_20190124_20190715-1743

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:
Full flash OTA update, it can update any version

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.

Hello bencebacsi, I saw that on the (EU) version of the Umidigi F1, the home button has a Google Assistant animation when pressed and has double circle/ring, why doesn't Umidigi also have this on the global version of the phone. I hope this shall be also added in the next global version.

If the home button is used to differenciate between the EU and Global version, try using other alternatives.
I paid for a pure Android™ Pie UI. Would be pleased if this is added in the next update.

The new camera app is good, however after updating the old camera app is still on the phone and there is no way to disable it or even remove the shortcut from the app drawer, help!

tetrys wants Umidigi to use the status bar icons like the ones advertised by Umidigi.

Before I make this update, I wanted to ask. Does twrp still work after this update?

I see some people posting on XDA, and here on the EU version, that after the update they are not able to load twrp anymore.

I installed this ROM using the flash tool, but now there is some red text in the top right of my phone screen.

There are two lines of text: one says TEE with some Chinese characters and the other one says GOOGLE with the same Chinese characters.

How do I get rid of this red text overlay?
