This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V3.0_20200821 system software
for
UMIDIGI A7 Pro 64GB


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:
  • Closing background running apps after screen-off issue fixed
  • Czech and Slovak translation updated
  • Other minor bug fixes and system optimization


FOTA version: UMIDIGI_A7_PRO_V3.0_20200821


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

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 20200801 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.

I am impressed that the forum administration simply does not care about the problems that customers experience. It is the first and last time that I buy an Umidigi device.

I noticed "Clear all" option on recent window is missing after latest update. I have to clear all apps one after the other. Why?

Please also look into the previous comments. Thanks

Hi Toluene15 !
You have an interesting name.

Multi touch has many uses which includes gaming. This is my second umidigi device and multi touch (5 touches) works on the previous. There is always room for improvement. While 1-2 might be important, 3 - 5 are just suggestions.

So this will work on USA version of A7 Pro 64GB? Is this a alpha release? Why hasn't it been made on OTA as of yet. I just got my A7 pro 2 days ago and the current V2.1_20200801 Rom has some bugs that are driving me nuts.

Nevermind my previous post. The OTA update went through the following day. Thanks for keeping this phone up to date, the new update fixed the 3 issues I was having.

Hello!
I'm starting to use my A7 Pro and noticed bugs in the latest version of the system. There are spelling errors, at least in Portuguese-BR, the camera app suffers from slowness in the visualized image, when activating manual iso and freezing during use, only working again when the system is restarted. Anyway, it needs to improve a lot.
A doubt, what is the difference from A7 PRO 64GB to A7 PRO 64GB EEA?

The difference is A7 PRO 64GB is the "global" (chinese, russian, etc) version, the A7 PRO 64GB EEA just specially made for the european countries (EEA means "European Economic Area").

Hi Toluene15 !
You have an interesting name.

I ask, what are the 5-10 multi touches for?
Other requirements and suggestions can also be solved by installing the application. I like pure Android and I'm very happy with Umidigi (I have A5 Pro). If you require and want such features, buy another phone with a price of more than € 200, with an extension from the manufacturer.
I don't think Umidigi will solve this.
