This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.4_20190829 system software
for UMIDIGI A5 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 A5 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:
  • Improved camera performance and bug fixes
  • Receiver (earpiece speaker) volume increased
  • WiFi MAC address fixed
  • Other minor bug fixes and system optimizations

FOTA version: UMIDIGI_A5_Pro.E_V1.4_20190829_20190829-1130


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 A5 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 A5 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:
It can update version 20190807 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 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.

Really disgusting and unpleasant (and also irrelevant) the amount of spam this forum has.

Comments

It means nobody in Umidigi reads this foruns, otherwise the spam would be eliminated and spamers irradiated. So we can't expect any help from umidigi to our problems. But we allready know this.  Post time 2019-9-16 19:48

Umidigi has no action, just like the Chinese description in upgrading to version 1.5 (EU). I have no ...

mainly:

- correction of the problem of cameras with the digital stabilizer that causes green artifacts when moving the phone with the applications of other publishers. example: google duo

- correction of the incoming call bug when the phone is restarted and when the sim card lock of the screen was activated simultaneously (the phone no longer sounded and we fell directly on the messaging)

- Fixed a dialer bug or stability issue that puts the screen to sleep during a phone conversation

general stabilization of the whole

except error on my part, no new functionality at first sight, only major fixes

I am usually slow. And considering I had to wait almost 3 months to get a working phone My old phone (2014) was a tripple sim acer e700/e39 which is still working and good enough if only acer would have released android 5.1. My bank does not want me to use the bank app on 4.4 any more. That phone is fantastic.  3 sims (private, work and during vacation prepaid internet) and seperate tf card slot. These days you have to look very hard for a simple 2 sim phone that also allows a tf card at the same time.  Anyway the phone was cheap and never failed to work. I could have used it for a year more or so at least if those app makers kept their software compatible.

I do have an other issue thought that maybe some one has a fix for?

The wifi is really bad (good strong signal though) when bluetooth is on. (not even connected)
So I now turn bluetooth of if I need wifi but I was hoping for some setting somewhere that I might have missed?

yeaaaaaaaaaaaaah a new bug !!!!!!

in communication if the screen stays off for a while, nothing else answers the phone! both the screen and the buttons on the side.

It is necessary to wait until the correspondent is hooked up so that the screen is re-lit!

I set the display off to 30 minutes!

it's hot as bug !!

After this update there is a 3-4 seconds delay when opening the installed applications on the phone.
During this delay the screen remains white.
This should be fixed as soon as possible because it is very annoying. I have 2 devices with the same problem.
I saw there is the same delay for the non EU version after the last update.

Thank you very much for your support!

You have three options offered here to install the update manually. Could you please share a screenshot with your error message?

What about performing a factory data reset? Or first just try to erase the data of the problematic apps.

Hi,
Go to 'Settings → Network & Internet → Mobile Network → Advanced → Access Point Names', select the 3-dot menu button in the top right corner and 'Reset to default'. Reboot your phone and test it again.
If you still can't receive calls and SMS, you need to restore your phone to its factory defaults in order to be able to start the initial setup again.
  • Go to Settings → 'System → Advanced → Reset options → Erase all data', and RESET your phone.
  • In the initial setup process when you are in the security setup process, select NO on the Secure start-up page. Now you should be able to receive calls and SMS.
