This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V1.0_20210127 system software
for UMIDIGI A9 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 A9 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:
  • Minor bug fixes

FOTA vesion: UMIDIGI_A9_PRO_128GB_V1.0_20210127

SP Flash Tool
Resources:


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

Extract the .rar file before use. The scatter file (MT6771_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 A9 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 phone to USB.
2. Start the flashing process with the Download button in the flasher app.
3. Press and hold 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: A7, A7S, A7 Pro, A9 Pro, BISON: 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 20201221 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. As soon as the boot screen flashes up, release the power button and keep only the vol-up button pressed.
  • In a few seconds, your phone boots into Recovery and you see a lying android figure with an exclamation mark in red triangle on its tummy, and ‘No command’. Release the vol-up button.
  • Press and hold the power and vol-up buttons (in this order) together, then release them (first the vol-up button) 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.

#1. Android Auto is not working on this version.
#2. Android Security Update is still on September 5, 2020 release.

I have owned this phone for about a week now and to be honest. I feel like returning it.

the microphone picks up audio with very poor quality. The speaker also sounds less than expected. These updates did not correct these flaws.

I think the microphone is not so good, my cell phone is also very bad at capturing audio.  Post time 2021-8-12 07:02

The headphone output only gives mono sound and the WIFI disconnects out of nowhere.

Hi

1) If connected to wifi and bluetooth, the wifi connection from the router freezes, jams after 5 minutes.
The only way is to reset the router again.
It is with TP-Link routers and Xiaomi bluetooth Redmi Airdots. https://www.amazon.com/Xiaomi-Ea ... eless/dp/B07TZHNN92
No other phones jam the wifi connection, only Umidigi A9 Pro.

Please update the wifi and bluetooth drivers.

2) Please add app profiles for battery usage, reducing cpu cores speed, cpu governor, schedule change.
Eg. If using Google maps or a web browser, you want the foreground app like these to use lower cpu speed, not all cpu cores to reduce battery usage but want games to use full cpu speed.
Franco kernel manager app has such settings but it requires root access. Need some native firmware settings that doesn't need root access.

3) Please post or update correct method to root A9 Pro.

4) Please provide kernel source or work with Lineageos team to create a custom firmware that is free from Google apps.

The phone has many bugs such as the instability of the wifi and that the notifications do not work correctly until the app is reopened. Has anyone been able to return the phone to the manufacturer?

When you listen to music on your headset, it sounds like a DJ scratching.

It occurs frequently, but it always occurs in a specific place, and the probability is high when Wi-fi is turned on.
Also, playing with AAC has a higher probability than playing with SBC.
