This is the SP Flash Tool version of the
V3.01_20160826 firmware
for UMI London

Flash tool operation is recommended for experienced users only. Do not use it if you cannot understand the whole process!
UMI London 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.



Changelog:
Minor bug fixes


Resources:

Flashtool tutorials: UMI Forum or androidxda guide or YouTube guide (you can google a lot of other solutions and guides)

ROM: w370_dj198010_wcdma_20160826_songlixin_PC.rar - Extract the .rar file before use. The scatter file (MT6580_Android_scatter.txt) is inside the extracted folder, together with the other elements

SPFT: SP_Flash_Tool_v5.1628.rar (use this one instead of the old version linked in the UMI forum guide)




Here's an optional solution to start the flashing process on your UMI London if the standard method doesn't work. It's especially useful if your phone is bricked or is stuck in bootloop.
1. Connect your UMI London 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.

Did you use SPFT for this update? If you used SPFT did you uncheck preloader? Similar issue was in umi super as umi used two different screen/touch suppliers which cause two different screen/touch drivers and if you didn't uncheck preloader correct driver was changed to older version and then, example : you touch top left corner but screen was showing that you touch bottom of screen.
I could advise you to come back to older software and make sure you tick preloader (hopefully this software contents proper drivers) ! Then check do soft is working correctly. Then if everything working correctly and you want try new software make sure you uncheck preloader!
I just wondering did you clear all cache memory or did factory reset after update as some apps could make collisions ech other.

Ah ok, now I realized that I have not unchecked the preloader :-/ This is bad. Where can I get the correct, original Preloader?

Depends which screen/touch you using this what I know latest software for umi super and umi max including all touch drivers ( just for max and super)  but I would try firstly oldest soft with preloader checked and if everything works then use new soft with preloader unchecked.

Ok, I have checked both firmware releases for UMI London (20160726 and 20160826), the preloader file "preloader_w370.bin" is identical in both packages. Oh no

I wonder if there is a way to extract a working preloader from an existing device. Maybe UMI could provide some preloader files so I could try them until I find the correct one - or is my UMI London doomed?

File name could be the same but drivers could be different.
I would advice you to try with full old rom.
