This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.3_20190720 system software
for UMIDIGI Power
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 Power 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:
  • Improved camera performance
  • Other minor bug fixes and system improvements

FOTA version: UMIDIGI_Power.E_V1.3_20190720_20190720-1239

SP Flash Tool
Resources:


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

Extract the .rar file before use. The scatter file (MT6765_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 Power 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 Power 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 20190625 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 in the boot selector mode. It needs about 10 seconds or a little bit less if your phone was already powered off.
  • Here you can move with the vol-up button and select an item with vol-down. Select Recovery.
  • Your phone boots into Recovery. 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.

1- After Ota update Current version is still 1.3 Not 1.5.         

2- Virtual button GESTURES are terrible, always registers the virtual button touch And a touch on the underlying application like the keyboard (doing the back button Gesture would click on the keyboard then perform a normal back button click!!!!)


3- Another critical bug that still exists is , the screen keeps gradually increasing the brightnessand gradually decreasing the brightnesslevel AUTOMATICALLY even though auto brightness is turned off, it is very very noticable when you set brightness to < 25%


for me the mobile is not useable because of the last two points, returning to Amazon.


Thanks.

hi everyone. I'm JB from Italy. I need some help. I bought a new Umidigi power eu version. When I agreed to install fota update, phone switched off and started to install, battery was fully charged, but installation went wrong on itself and little robot appeared showing 'error'. since the phone is stuck on bootloop, no manner to enter recovery because when I select recovery robot appears with 'no command' writing. I tried so more times! So I followed guide to flashing, it worked but phone was still in bootloop with empty recovery. I tried all. I done 'auto format chipset' (I though, no damage, since phone was bricked...) then I saved phone, now I can power it. But it is unusable. Initial setting gets stuck everywhere, I can't migrate from my previous phone or set my google account. Gapps are always stopping and other apps too. so my question is: I must flash all versions from first to last one after other, or just last version is good? What difference from eu and non eu versions? I damaged something erasing chipset? Thanks a lot. Seller did'nt provide me with any assistance...
