This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.1 20200702 system software
for
UMIDIGI A7 Pro 128GB


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 Panorama mode added
  • Camera Portrait mode (dual camera) bug fixed
  • Proximity sensor issue (black screen when in phone call) fixed
  • Status bar pull down issue fixed
  • False ''over battery temperature'' alert bug fixed
  • Face unlock issue fixed
  • Other minor bug fixes and system optimization
Update error fixed in V1.1_20200704 OTA update file


FOTA version (SPFT): UMIDIGI_A7_PRO_V1.1_20200702
FOTA version (OTA): UMIDIGI_A7_PRO_V1.1_20200704



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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
  • Connect your UMIDIGI A7 Pro to USB.
  • Start the flashing process with the Download button in the flasher app.
  • 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.
  • Wait until the flashing process finishes.

If you accidentally formatted the flash chip of your phone, visit the following thread: UMIDIGI A7 Pro: Repair IMEIs, MEID and Google certificate

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 20200610 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.

Bummer. Installed the update OTA and now nothing in Settings launches and I see the following on the main Settings page. Clicking on the notifications does nothing but exit Settings. Nothing in Settings launch even in Safe Mode.

The same thing happened to me.
I downgraded to the previous version with SP Flash Tool.

Then I made a backup of the phone to my Google account.

Finally, I used the SP Flash Tool to do a firmware upgrade to version 20200702.

This process does a complete factory reset. Be sure to save all files before you begin.

Yes, Unfortunately if you have this issue after the 0702 update, the only solution is to perform a factory data reset in recovery or flash in firmware upgrade mode.

Hi,

I had the same issue. Would you recommend I do a factory data reset or a flash? I usually don't muck about with android internal software, so any advice would be helpful.

Hi,

If you want to avoid flashing but anyway the wireless installation of this update was successful, a factory data reset from recovery is enough. You can read how to enter the recovery menu in the first post of this thread.

Does the "firmware upgrade mode" mean to use SP Flash Tool? I tried applying the update from SD card and it finished successfully but I still encounter the issue.

Ended up using SP Flash Tool and chose the Download Only option but I forgot to uncheck userdata. Setting up the system now. Glad I originally turned on USB debugging.

Yes, it means flashing with SP Flash Tool in Firmware Upgrade mode. Without flashing the userdata partition (so erasing it), the Settings menu bug would not be fixed. Flashing with SPFT does not need USB debugging to be enabled.

Hello!
I have some problem:
1) With stereo sound in the headphones. If I use mono recording on the left or right channel, then the sound comes from two headphones at once.
Perhaps this is a firmware problem?
2) The screen has a pixel shift. Look at the picture. What is it?

Hello. I have bought the  A7 Pro 128 gig from Amazon Canada 2 weeks ago. I did all the updates and I have  the V1.1 20200704 ROM version. The wireless update doen'st offer the 1.2 version. Any reason why? Also for the last couple of days APPs connecting to internet via WIFI or cellular data are taking more time and a round arrow appears from 1 to 3 seconds before the app refresh or open. And I also have a notification in the top of the Settings menu saying:  Slow ^1 Start again. (See image link below) when I click on this it opens the wallpaper menu?? Anyone else know how to fix this?
