Figured it out... You need to used fastboot and not fastbootd; you get it by pressing volume up on startup.
Then I can't flash a custom recovery... SP Flash Tool says Checksum Error... Any clues ?

Halo did you use this TWRP ? TWRP_3.3.1by_nemo-nemo.img/
Or different one please tell me

I am facing the same problem on a "umidigi Power Europe Black"
I tried the following TWRPs´s, i found 3:
331Umidigi Power
Twrp_331_test1_Umi_Power
TWRP_3.3.1by_nemo-nemo.img from this forum.

First on 1.4E than on 1.2E and finaly on 1.5 international rom.
All Stock Roms working fine but as soon i unlocked the Bootloader and flashing one on the 2 first ones i get a bootloop and the nemo seems to be a stock recovery.

for now i rooted this way:

But still hoping for a working TWRP for the PowerE.

Anyone knows how to unlock the bootloader on Umidigi F2 ? When doing fastboot flashing unlock, it sa ...

I got the same problem (I have Power-3). I un-installed driver from PC, and let window find it , then I can unlock using ADB (before doing:  fastboot flashing unlock,  try: fastboot devices, if it can see your device)

Gosh, I'm feeling close, but for the life of me, I can't get it working in the last stages.
First, thanks bencebacsi for the tutorial.
A3_Pro_N_V1.2_20190910 here. I've been following scrupulously the steps. At step 7, I noticed that indeed if I don't reboot in recovery, the stock recovery is restored. So I take care to reboot in recovery mode :
  • reboot while holding Vol_up
  • here comes the bootloader menu: I select recovery
  • after that I get a black screen with a white Umidigi logo and white text saying "Orange State - Your device has been unlocked and can't be trusted - Your device will boot in 5 seconds"
  • I keep waiting, but keep my finger on Vol_up (I noticed that the next step never occurs if I don't)
  • 5 seconds later, hurray, I get this... But alas, nothing more. After a few seconds, the phone reboots. And if I come back to recovery, the stock recovery is back.


What did I miss?

Me again, autoreplying. After several tests with another phone (sitll A3 Pro, but on Android 8.1), I came to the conclusion that this TWRP works only with the latest Android 8 ROMs.
That'd be a nice idea to mention this in the OP.

any idea which TRWP version works for the A3X device?? i've been wanting to throw LiniageOS 17.1 on there to try it out. got my old HTC M9 ONE to load it.. but uh, SnapDragon device heh heh.. what would be really cool is if we got OPEN support to use any OS version on our phones! supposedly found a TWRP V3.3.1 that was supposed to work with Android 10 but i just get a blank screen on Recovery boot..

Do we have custom recovery for the new Umidigi S5 Pro?
I don't see one at all.
