This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.4_20190715 system software
for UMIDIGI A3 N Android 9.0
Please flash this ROM only if your phone is shipped with Android 9.0 system. This software is NOT directly compatible with Android 8.1 phones!


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 A3 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.





Changelog:
  • Minor bug fixes and system improvements

FOTA version: UMIDIGI_A3_N_V1.4_20190715_20190715-1041

SP Flash Tool
Resources:

Flashtool tutorial: http://bit.ly/SPFTguide

Extract the .rar file before use. The scatter file (MT6739_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 A3 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 A3 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 --> 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 20190610 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.zipfile to your SD card.
  • Press and hold the volume-up and power buttons together until your phone restarts in the bootselector mode. It needs about 10 seconds or a little bit less if your phone wasalready powered off.
  • Here you can move withthe vol-up button and select an item with vol-down. Select Recovery.
  • Your phone boots into Recovery and you see a lying android figure with an exclamation mark in red triangle on its tummy + 'No command'.
  • Press and hold the power and vol-up buttons (in this order) together, then release them to call the recovery menu. Now you can move with both 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 SD card 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.

Sorry for my question. What's the difference between A3 software and A3 N version? Can I flash N version on my A3?

There is no Wifi antenna pict on the home screen
If there is a limit to the number of displays, please change from VOLTE display to HD display so that it can be displayed

Hi, this ROM version has fixed camera problem when trying to take photo with left rotated of A3, couriously on vertical or right rotated it took photo shoot.

Moving around menus and screen is more fast.

But I've got already a question, MAC WiFi change every time I disabled WIFI or reboot A3 and this and little problem with my mac firewall of the WIFI router , so, dear Umidigi gurus ¿ is it possible to make static wifi mac at the same values ?

Hello, experts
Time ago I had an A3, with normal boot (ROM UMIDIGI_A3_N_V1.2_20190427_20190427-1249). It was possible to install twrp and everything was great.
Recently I bought a new A3. It came with verified boot (UMIDIGI_A3_N_V1.4_20190715_20190715-1041). I discovered that It is not possible anymore to install twrp.
I need to install twrp. Downgrade ROM to an earlier version seems a solution. However, is it a sensible idea? I do not need android 9, and I do not need the fingerprint scanner.
I have read the great information in this Forum, and I understand that I have to fully format flash, losing Goggle attestation key and fingerprint scanner. I do not care about fingerprint scanner, but this scanner is necessary for recovering the Google keys!. Is the situation as desperate as it seems? There is any simpler way to install twrp?
Thanks a lot

I am not sure but someone told me that this software can be used to buy essay online for all the college students. I just need to read the reviews for this software to buy it.
