This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
EEA_V3.0_20200821 system software
for
UMIDIGI A7 Pro 64GB

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:
  • 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_EEA_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 202000801 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 Umidigi!
Thank you for updating Slovak translation and other bug fixes.

One thing is very annoying, which I described in a previous version. Alerts cannot be removed, deleted or turned off:
- set your fingerprint,
- switch on night mode,
- upgrade your Pixel (yes Pixel),
- emergency information ...,
- turn on mobile data
...
simply almost all alerts.

Hi,

It's a general Android 10 issue but there's a solution. Link: https://community.umidigi.com/fo ... hread&tid=19517

I read about this problem before I had the A7 Pro. I didn't think of that. Thanks to Admin  Post time 2020-8-25 16:41

Hi Umidigi !

I had a problem with the USB version in the PC and cell phone detection. Now the problem is solved.
I solved the recommended procedure from Admin to remove suggestions in the settings more easily. It seems solved. I deleted data from the Settings Suggestions system app store.
But you still can't fix the suggestion - Mobile Data Alert (On).

Szia Bence! (remélem, magyar vagy a neved alapján)
Szeretnék egy kis segítséget kérni. Most vettem egy Umidigi A7 Pro-t, és a rendszer kiadott a képernyő alján két piros szöveget: "unwritten tee key" és  "unwritten google key"... hogyan tudnám ezeket eltüntetni?
Köszönöm szépen a segítséget!
Üdv: Feri

Nem vagyok angol, és ezért tudok segíteni a fordítóknak. Inkább próbáld ki az angolt.

I am not English and that is why I can help with the translators. Try English instead.

Hi dfery !
Do you have this current version? Did it show up on the first run? Give more accurate information.

Resetting to factory settings helps with many special problems. Try out.

So, my problem is: my phone has arrived with the 2.1 rom (UMIDIGI_A7_PRO_EEA_V2-1_20200801), and when the updating process is started, the method failed. I installed the latest rom with SP Flash Tool, but i forgive to make backup of nvram and nvdata before flashing the, and after I installed the latest rom update ("UMIDIGI_A7_PRO_EEA_V3-0_20200821"), on the phone' screen appearing two red line with this words: "Unwritten tee key" and "Unwritten google key". I search it for the google, and the solution will be that: i need the nvram file for flash, and after the messages will been disappearing.

Hi dfery!

I guess the Admin will contact you. From what you describe, this is a problem with the information about the IMEI and probably corrupted information stored in NVRAM (WI-Fi, Bluetooth Mac address, IMEI, ....), which are necessary for the operation of the device.
I did not encounter this problem, but try e.g. https://www.getdroidtips.com/bac ... vram-data-mediatek/
It should also work for the A7 Pro, which has an MTK of 6763.

Good luck.

Thanks the tip, i tried, but not worked the process has success until the end, but in the system not changing nothing. I tried an other method that bencebacsi shown an other post, thats a half-success: the one of the two error messages ("Unwritten tee key" and "Unwritten google key") the "unwritten tee key" has disappeared, but the other one (google key) is shown yet. So I'm waiting for an other solution
