This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
E_V1.0_20191223.V3.03 system software
for UMIDIGI F2
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 F2 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:
  • GMS certificate received and installed (you might need to perform a factory data reset to take it into effect)
  • Camera AI effects optimized
  • Camera Panorama mode improved
  • Wide-angle camera optimized
  • Fingerprint sensor handling improved (you need to delete and add your fingerprints again after this update)
  • Other minor bug fixes

Known issue: Sound quality issues in phone calls. The next update will fix it.

FOTA version: UMIDIGI_F2_E_V1.0_20191128_20191223-1253

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 can automatically install it. Please make sure that your Windows is logged in with administrator rights and your computer has a working internet connection when first time connecting your phone.


Here's an optional solution to start the flashing process on your UMIDIGI F2 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 F2 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 → 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 20191205 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 update 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 recovery 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.

I noticed a bug with sending videos. Any videos sent (not received) aka in local storage, WILL NOT play inside apps like WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger.

Unlocking the bootloader worked for me using this tutorial. https://www.ayudaroot.com/root/u ... -f2-con-android-10/

However, after the "ROOT" step, phone went into bootloop, and had to reflash the boot image. So that doesn't work. Also offline patching with Magisk didn't work.

I think it actually may be related to something like this. https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/issues/2005 because my patched boot.img file is smaller than the original. So perhaps the checksums/signatures are invalid, and we should erase the block first before writing. I've put in the time to make the transition from my previous phone, so am not very trigger-happy to do development on my production phone. But perhaps someone is willing to try?

@peterbos someone over on XDA managed to make it work, I still don't have info from him. I'll try tomorrow to add padding with dd. I also noticed that the image was way smaller than the real image and that it was padded.

This is our "home" for rooting that phone now. Feel free to come by https://forum.xda-developers.com ... umidigi-f2-t4030407
I am currently working on a TWRP port as well; it's exactly (mostly) the same as F1 though.
