I have a serious issue with my UMI EMAX. My ROM (UMI eMAX KitKat V05 0715) wasn't working optimally so I downloaded and installed another ROM (UMI eMAX VIBE ALPS.KK2.MP13.V1.1 0722) through Root Joy. After it finished installing, I didn't like the ROM that much, and decided to install the previous ROM back to the phone (UMI eMAX KitKat V05 0715). It pushed the ROM to the phone, but when it got to the point where it would flash the phone.. That point where the phone will show white and the progress below.. It hanged at 50% Until the Root Joy said connection time out. I put off the phone, and ever since it has hanged at the home screen (UMI simple but deligent.) I've tried all I can to find a way to return the phone back to at least the recovery mode so that I would flash or format the phone, but nothing has worked. It only displayed that welcome home UMI simple but deligent screen. Please, I need your help to help me fix this.
Thanks.

You just should have been more patient. The update process didn't hang, just the moving of the progress bar for a while. Since you forced your phone to power off while the update files were being flashed, you just bricked it.
Now you can recover your phone with SP Flash Tool as Angel said.

I had similar problems when I tried to flash my UMI  Rome. I tried using SP Flashtool and it kept on throwing up errors. The phone then wouldn't boot past the UMI logo.

To solve the problem, I went back to SP Flashtool and downloaded each of the files to the phone separately. It worked.

How can I download each of the file to the phone when the phone won't come up?

If you haven't try it yet, you should choose the 'Firmware Upgrade' option instead of the default 'Download only. In that mode you have to flash all partitions.
In 'Download Only' mode you can flash each partition one by one if you leave checked only one of them. Normally, for a firmware upgrade that's enough to check the boot and system partitions. If you do so, your user data will be kept in its original state. If you want a clean install, you have to check the cache and user data partitions as well.
If you try to flash a bricked phone, then always choose the 'Firmware upgrade' option.

I feel like my phone is now finally dead. I used the firware upgrade as suggested, but I saw an error when I connected my phone to the Falsh tool. I tried flashing it but nothing happens. It didn't show any progress bar. Nothing. Now, my phone is not booting anymore. It's ike dead. The only thing that happens is that it charges when I plug it in. Please, what I'm I going to do?

Hoping to hear from you soon.

Kind regards.
