This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.0_20190816 system software
for UMIDIGI S3 Pro
(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 S3 Pro 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_S3_Pro_V1.0_20190522 as Build number after this update but the real version is V1.0_20190816
FOTA version: UMIDIGI_S3_Pro.E_V1.0_20190522_20190816-1750

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 S3 Pro 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 S3 Pro 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.

Umidigi thinks only to release new phone, but after 2-3 months forget them :-(
Maybe Umidigi thinks that phones don't need software update :-)

I have a cheap Nokia 3 (140$) bought with Android 7.1: now it has Android 9.0 with September 2019 update!!!

Update geïnstalleerd. Alles werkt prima. Alleen mag de beveiligingspatch wel worden bijgewerkt.

Updated yesterday afternoon, everything works wonderfully no problem with the touch of the smartphone at the moment. But I would like to report problems related to the camera application, by pressing the recording button in SLOW MOTION or TIME LAPSE mode, the phone takes a 10 seconds to start recording and at the moment of saving it often crashes the application . I also noticed that the Android security patches were not updated, the patches of March 5 still appear. Please update the security patches and solve the reported camera problems.

De camera-app crasht bij het maken van een video-opname. Het duurt ook lang voordat je een opname kunt maken. Dit graag zo spoedig mogelijk repareren in een volgende update. !!

Hello,
I updated yesterday and everything seems to be working fine, there is one issue
We also use sip calls and you have disabled sip settings from the call accounts forcing us to use an external app to be able to use sip calls.

Camera slowmotion focus and camera photo focusing is bad.
Focus works in near distance but not long distance objects.
Why camera2api is not enabled?

My old  lumia 1020 is better than this.. still
