This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.7_20200430 system software
for UMIDIGI A5 Pro

European version for EEA countries

Dear Users, According to the currently available information, this one was the last update for the EEA version of UMIDIGI A5 Pro. If you want to get further updates, please flash the latest update of the global ROM. You can flash without the userdata partition in order to maintain your user data and the eea and non-eea versions are perfectly compatible.
Ben - March 4th, 2021


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:
  • Android Security Patch level updated to March, 2020
  • Stock Google apps updated

FOTA version: UMIDIGI_A5_Pro.E_V1.7_20200430_20200430-1442

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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.

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 → 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 2020102 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.

hello

Hi hudsonq !

Ooops. The first page says: Flashtool tutorial: http://bit.ly/SPFTguide
or
https://community.umidigi.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=16931

"Format ALL" is NEVER made. You deleted everything, including the IMEI.
The good news is that this can be fixed. I haven't done it yet.

So far, I haven't identified any new issues, but the old ones haven't been fixed.
The problem with the automatic switching on of the night mode according to the time zone is still not eliminated, and the adjustment of the brightness according to the ambient light - strong display illumination at night and little again during the day.

Overall it works well. Successful model.

Hi, I agree with you about these flaws, they are notable, you can get used to it, but they are still problems that I hope will solve soon :(  Post time 2020-5-20 02:17

Hello, have you tried to reinstall the rom software? I've already made several modifications to mine, and going back to rom stock, everything was ok.  Post time 2020-5-20 01:54

Hi, is it possible to share the boot.img and the scatter file so it isn't needed to download the whole ROM to root the device? Thanks in advance.
