This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.0_20200506.V3.12 system software
for UMIDIGI F2
European version for EEA countries


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:
  • 'OK Google' on locked screen added
  • Android Security Patch updated to 2020 March
  • Screen record function added
  • Headphones media play sound quality improved
  • A green floating (can be repositioned) phone button added when your phone call is in the background
  • Fast charging notification added on lock screen
  • OTA update bug of the 0428 version fixed


FOTA version: UMIDIGI_F2_E_V1.0_20200324_20200506-2129

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.

If you accidentally formatted the flash chip of your phone, visit the following thread: Recover fingerprint scanner and Google key Android 9 and 10

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OTA (recovery) update
Manual (local) OTA update method instructions
  • Copy the downloaded .zip file to the internal storage of your phone
  • Go to Settings → 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 20200309 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.

Tried to deny mic permissions and uninstall Google and Android Auto apps, mic still not working

UMIDIGI NOW IT'S TIME TO ACT!

F2 is having such serious software (?) problems that the device is more or less unusable:

- Mic not working anymore
- Finger print sensor is gone
- Latest update (20200506) was a downgrade to phone overall performance.  Eg. Chrome browser is having some freezing issues etc.

Question for Umidigi staff: What would you do if your phone's mic all of the sudden would be gone? Happy?

Hi @bencebacsi,

Thank you for your reply.

Use the same version that you have installed on your phone. You have the latest global, not the EEA version installed on your phone.

Hey @admin, @bencebacsi

Hi Admin. I have Umidigi F2. Could you tell me how to fix random Wi-fi MAC  ...

Hi,

You can set (flash) a permanent MAC address with SN Writer. Please visit the page below for the needed resources and a tutorial.

Link: https://community.umidigi.com/fo ... thread&tid=1375

Please see paragraph 3. in the tutorial. On the System Config page make only the Wifi Address option checked to make an automatically generated or manually entered MAC address flashed. After a successful flashing, your phone will permanently keep the given MAC address.

WIFI switches itself off for no reason. You must then activate it manually. This problem was also present in previous firmware versions.

Still the microphone does not work anymore. I need to use a headset to make or receive calls. The problem appeared with the previous update and was reported by me in the comments. But still no fix for this issue.
This is very annoying!

Hello.
Need some help with the local update.
I already copied the file to the phone internal memory but when i'm selecting file it says it can't find any .zip file.
Is there any specific folder where the file should be?
Thank you
