This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.5_20190826 system software
for UMIDIGI Power


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 and bug fixes
  • Proximmity sensor optimized
  • Fingerprint unlock optimized
  • Detailed cell broadcast (Wireless Emergency alerts) settings added as a new app. (Complies with EEWS requirements)
  • Other minor bug fixes and system optimizations

FOTA version: UMIDIGI_Power_V1.5_20190826_20190826-1656

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 20190720 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.

Changelog:
  • Improved camera performance and bug fixes    : Not sure exactly where has been improved, Video capture still lack of auto focus.
  • Proximmity sensor optimized : Noticeable.  Screen lite up shortly after face move away from phone during calls.
  • Fingerprint unlock optimized :  Noticeable.  Fingerprint recognition seems better, but screen response remain slow.  
  • Detailed cell broadcast (Wireless Emergency alerts) settings added as a new app. (Complies with EEWS requirements) : Confirmed.  
  • Other minor bug fixes and system optimizations : can you be little more specific?

Friendly reminder to Umidigi:
Google security update is now under Risk.
Repro:   Settings >>> Seucrity & Location >>> Security update  ( over 3 month old  - warning icon appears )

Generally, people won't care too much about security update when they are buying "lower" or "cheaper" model such as A5 Pro / Power.
Nevertheless, reviews from your "cheap" line up with no-update definitely will impact sale volume to your high-end model.
