This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.0_20190726 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:
  • NFC payment issues fixed
  • New camera app finalized, old camera app removed
  • Detailed cell broadcast (Wireless emergency alerts) settings added to the Advanced settings of the Messages app. (Complies with EEWS requirements)
  • Touch screen freezing issues fixed
  • Other minor bug fixes and system improvements


The system will show UMIDIGI_F1.E_V1.0_20190125 as Build number after this update but the real version is V1.0_20190726
FOTA version: UMIDIGI_F1.E_V1.0_20190125_20190726-1817

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:
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 immediately 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,

it seems that since my phone automatically updated to version V1.0_20190726 NFC does not work anymore. The phone does not read any NFC tags.
Can I fix that or is it a hardware failure?

I already tried factory reset but that did not help.

Comments

I have the same problem. All was working fine with the May update. Then, with the July 5th update the phone couldn't read NFC tags anymore. And since the July 26th update, the NFC service is broken.  Post time 2019-8-23 18:11

Actually it's not crashing. Try to erase the data of the camera app.

The new camera app is awesome ! I am very satisfied by this phone. The only point to improve is the max call volume, a little bit to low in noisy background , is it tecnically possible to increase  ?

Camera still broken when choosing Video (hangs forever if you last used Video and when it reloads on Video it'll stay there and refuse all user input, though occasionally it'll spring to life after 10 seconds or so).

You have to kill the task and reload (so that it starts on Photo) - but even then it has the same issue as the previous new camera software. Switching to video and trying to record a video still takes 20 seconds. Argh!

Why does the new camera program support only 32-bit ARM processors and not contain arm64 libraries?

This latest update, has made some of my photos appear listed as from some random dates (year 2200, 2300)

I have my camera app set to write to SD card, the performance with this now makes it unusable. I even decided to switch to a newer higher performance card, but this did not resolve the issue, so clearly firmware/camera app related.

Since yesterday's update I can't enable NFC anymore. The switch just doesn't do anything. Anybody else having that issue?
