This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.0_EEA_20200611 system software
for
UMIDIGI A7 Pro 128GB

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 A7 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:
  • Camera HDR effect optimized
  • Camera access issue in Skype video call fixed
  • Gyroscope performance improved
  • Other minor bug fixes and system optimization


FOTA version (SPFT): UMIDIGI_A7_PRO_EEA_V1.0_20200611
FOTA version (OTA): UMIDIGI_A7_PRO_EEA_V1.0_20200613



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SP Flash Tool
Resources:


Flashtool tutorial: http://bit.ly/SPFTguide

Extract the .rar file before use. The scatter file (MT6763_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 A7 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 A7 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 → 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 20200527 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.

Hi, sorry for my english.
I just received my umidigi A7 Pro 128GB. The phone has the version UMIDIGI_A7_PRO_EEA_V1.0_20200528 but it informs me of a system update version number:  UMIDIGI_A7_PRO_EEA_V1.0_20200613
When I try to install the update, the phone goes through a brief process and restarts and tries to install the update, but there is always an error approximately 20% of the update. After the error, the phone restarts and boots in normal mode without having installed the update.
I have tried to manually install the update by putting the file on the phone and the same error occurs.
I have put a sd card and I have added the update file to the sd card and I have started in recovery mode to install it and again the same error.
I have done a factory reset from the recovery and I have tried again with the phone reset but again the same error.
I have even gone so far as to put it in English (I have it in Spanish) because in some places in the network they said that the error was fixed by putting the language in English but always the same error.
Anyone who can help me? .. Thanks

Hi. No, I have not tried flash my phone with SP flash tools yet.
I was waiting for your suggestions before doing this option since flashing all the firmware erases all the data and applications, leaving the phone clean if I'm not mistaken.
For this reason, the update through OTA interested me since it only updates without deleting data and applications.
Really, the question would be: Why doesn't updating via OTA work for me?
If I have no choice I will have to flash the phone but I will wait for any more suggestions from you.
Thank you

Hello, finally I have decided to flash the phone with SP Flash Tool, Download Only mode and Userdata uncheck to avoid losing data and applications.
The phone has been updated apparently without problems.
Thank you.

Hello, same issue with my phone (A7 Pro, 128 GB version). The update downloads, after rebooting, gives an error, then reboots in normal mode. Tried to put the ZIP file in phone storage and manually update - the same result. Haven't tried with SP Flash tool. Does every new update has to be applied via the tool or this bug is fixed?

After flashing with SP Flash Tool to version "UMIDIGI_A7_PRO_EEA_V1.0_20200611", I noticed that after switching rear camera to Portrait mode, the following error pops up: "Can't connect to the camera...", seen in the attachment. No other apps are opened, tried to restart phone, it's always the same. Other camera modes (macro, AI, video, slow motion, ...) work good. Any solution?

I have the exact same issue.

Portrait mode works after a factory reset, but fails immediately when the phone connects to the Internet through WiFi.

I do not get any notification about upgrading to UMIDIGI_A7_PRO_EEA_V1.0_20200613.

Also, you cannot upgrade to UMIDIGI_A7_PRO_EEA_V1.0_20200613 with the file posted in this thread.
