This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.0_20190904 system software
for UMIDIGI F1
(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 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:
  • Updated camera app
  • OTA update issues fixed
  • Other minor bug fixes and system improvements



The system will show UMIDIGI_F1_V1.0_20190724 as Build number after this update but the real version is V1.0_20190904
FOTA version: UMIDIGI_F1_V1.0_20190718_20190904-1829


How to wireless update your phone if you are currently on version 20190819 and the update process gets stuck at rebooting
You need this solution only if you don't want to or can not update your phone with SPFT (no Windows/Linux PC) or from recovery (no SD card)
  • Download the OTA5.26_noIcon_20190911.apk and AdupsFotaUpdate-new.apk files and copy them to the storage of your phone.
  • Open the file browser and install OTA5.26_noIcon_20190911.apk
  • Go to 'Settings --> Apps & notifications' and select 'See all ... apps
  • Tap on the 3-dot menu button in the top right corner and 'Show system'.
  • Scroll down to Wireless Update and select, then DISABLE (Replace this app with the factory version) and FORCE STOP it.
  • Now install AdupsFotaUpdate-new.apk. If your phone is connected to the internet, now the wireless update will automatically start to get downbloaded.
  • Install the update and let your phone reboot.

Here's a video tutorial: SR_20190916_081208.mp4

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

If you get a ''PMT changed for the ROM...'' error message, please use the scatter file from the first ROM version, or flash your phone in Firmware Upgrade mode. Please NEVER format your phone, not even if the flasher app (or your friend, a website etc.) recommends you that! NEVER choose the Format All + Download mode!!!

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 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 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 20190819 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 (the boot screen is displayed), then immeduately 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.

Dear users,

If the wireless update process gets stuck at rebooting, then download the OTA file from here, and install it from recovery. From recovery, you can install updates stored only on SD card, so you'll need to install an SD card in your phone. The update process may take for up to 15 minutes and there's no progress bar, so please be patient.
If you don't have an SD card, then you can flash your phone with SP Flash Tool. If you get the "PMT has changed..." error message in the flasher app, you can flash your phone in firmware update mode (your user data will be erased), or download the first ROM version and use the scatter file in it - copy it to the new ROM folder by overwriting the original file. Please never format your phone!

Sincerely yours, Ben

UPDATE 12. Sept. 2019: Now you can see the correct FOTA version in this post and the correct OTA update file is available for download.

Spotify crash here also... Where to get stable working Rom?

There is no stable rom and probably none will come .
I had similar problems with a UMI Z and after a year had not improved and there were no updates anymore .

That's why I sent the F1 back and bought a Redmi Note 7 .

Umi only wants to sell hardware but does not invest anything to improve the software.
This seems to be the reality.

Well if you don't have to keep deleting the fingerprints to get apps to use them you could share y ...

I have not had any issues with the fingerprint functionality in any of the F1 (EU) ROM updates until now (been using my F1 since February 2019).

The fingerprint works fine, both to unlock the phone and to login to several different apps (banking apps, mainly).

I have not had to fiddle around with the fingerprint configuration, or with the registration of my fingerprints.   I registered once, in feb 2019, and it has been working perfectly since then.

I do not use any special launcher or any other type of customization, nor have I rooted my F1.  I have the plain Android 9 that comes with the F1, and I have updated every time a new OTA update was available.

The F1 has only given me a perfect user experience.   I do not have any reason to change to a new phone, even though I would really like to get an F2 now.

Well I have to apologize here. I have committed a big mistake because my pone is a F1 play and not a F1 as I thought first, because I wasn't aware of the difference. So I went into the wrong download forum as the F1 play forum is different. And I downloaded the wrong ROM versions.
I have been able to recover my phone by using the right latest ROM version for F1 play, and the phone works again like a charm.
Sorry for all the inconvenience caused by my mistake to the UMIDIGI staff and the users.

Same here, user from the Netherlands
It started with Spotify issues which I tried to solve. Seems the Umidigi Firmware did this (last time I updated)
Now I try the latest OTA and keeps in "booting" message

Comments

I also noticed issues in Spotify after the V1.0_20190819 F1 EU firmware update. Selecting the "options" menu (three dots) in Spotify screens locks the Spotify app.  Post time 2019-9-9 03:28
booting or restarting?  Post time 2019-9-8 01:35

Hello.
My F1 also gets stuck at the "Rebooting" message after the OTA update was downloaded.     It stays there for hours, and it never actually updates.   
I turned the power off,  turned it back on,  tried the update again, but the same thing happens (gets stuck at "Rebooting").

UMIDIGI, please check this issue.

Thank you.

Please can solve the flashlight problem. Since activating the in the notification bar, it takes time to react the button, to be able to turn on the light.

Hello! If I do the OTA (recovery) update described above, will I lose my personal data and files? Or will it be just like a regular OTA update where I don't have to worry about backing up my personal data?
