This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.6_20191227 system software
for UMIDIGI A5 Pro


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:
  • Minor bug fixes and system optimizations

FOTA version: UMIDIGI_A5_Pro_V1.6_20191227_20191227-1956
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 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 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 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 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.

Now, Umidigi is selling these devices on their official eBay shop on a discount.  But, I will not and make sure others that I know, to NEVER buy another Umidigi device ever, not again. After sales, customer care and tech support is limited, almost none to zero - useless and hopeless.  If budget or money is tight, one is better off buying a pre-owned device at similar prices as these, and take a chance.  It's been almost 4 months since the last update and there are still bugs and software issues to get patched, fixed and improve upon, excluding Android Security patches.  

I've since dirty flashed (without wiping data partition) mine running the newer Global rom and switched to the EU rom, it is dated a few days newer.  It might just help some of you with WiFi and/or connectivity issues, it might not - won't hurt to do this.  Just read the instructions and make your backup, store those safely on a PC or standalone USB drive, etc. - just in case.  Camera (rear/main triple ones) still defective (early production ones that Umi shipped in July last year) - wide angle & front/selfie camera works fine - not likely for it to get fixed.  

Switching back to a Xiaomi global dual-sim smartphone (running Android 10 stock rom, very smoothly) - this will be just a backup and for play - too bad, company will never catch up with the major brands.  I have a Google Pixel XL (2016) and it updated to run Android 10 stock, smoothly.  

Umidigi - your loss and you lost it.

No OTA update for almost 2 months.  Android security patch still on June 5, 2019.  

What kind of af ...

Hi delta128m !

I agree with you that they have passed 2 months and nothing. Maybe Android 10? Attention, not Google, but Umidigi needs to customize the A10 for the phone and it is not that simple. I noticed that the other models did not receive another update.I have already said for the EU version that Android security does not require monthly updates. Also, Microsoft does not release system security updates on a monthly basis. If a system vulnerability is found, Google will certainly issue a patch or patch, and Umidigi must disclose it. It can be anytime, not every month.Maybe you mean the Android One group from X ... i, but that's more of an advertising move. I don't believe that Google fixes system security every month. Rather, the manufacturer improves or changes Android features and adapts them to the phone.I am very satisfied with this model, the price excellent.

Hello!
I found one strange problem.
When I answer the phone from 4G "HD-LTE" callers, I can not hear what they say at all.
Also, they can not hear my voice.
But 3G callers never have this problem.
Does anyone has the same problem??
