This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V3.01_20161228 Android 7.0 firmware
for UMI Plus

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

Always flash this ROM as 'Firmware Upgrade', not 'Download Only' if you are upgrading an Android 6.0 system!

Changelog:
  • Phone storage won't be available after USB connection until the screen is unlocked
  • Wallpaper load page optimized
  • Fast charge shutdown alarm clock bug fixed
  • Flashlight optimized
  • The desktop clock default set to 4X1
  • Issue of automatic email synchronization (such as e-mail communication) fixed
  • Settings - security - fingerprint, add fingerprints in the input interface and find the sensor interface to switch back and forth, the phone prompts "set to stop running" issue fixed
  • Proximity sensor adjusted from the 2cm to 4cm
  • Writing issue combined with GPS auto-positioning fixed (Glonass support fixed)


SPFT Resources:

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

ROM: 20161228_c239v55_kw_u3.rar - Extract the .rar file before use. The scatter file (MT6755_Android_scatter.txt) is inside the extracted folder, together with the other elements


VCOM driver: Windows 10 already automatically can install it or you can use this: MTK_Driver_Auto_Installer_SP_Drivers_20160804.exe


Here's an optional solution to start the flashing process on your UMI Plus 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 Plus 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.


Manual (local) OTA update method instructions
  • Copy the downloaded .zip file to either the internal memory or the SD card of your phone
  • Go to Settings --> About phone --> Wireless update
  • Tap the 3-dot menu button at the top right corner and select Local updates
  • Brows for the ...update.zip file and select it
  • Tap Install now, comfirm the process with OK and wait until the process will be finished

Update file for manual OTA update: UMi_Plus_V3.01_20161228_update.zip
Warning! It is just an update file, not the whole system. You can use it only to update the V3.01_20161209 version, not any earlier (Android 6.0) versions.

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. It needs about 10 seconds or a little bit less if your phone was already powered off.
  • When your phone is restarted, immediately release the power button but still hold the vol-up button until you see a lying android figure with an exclamation mark in red triangle on its tummy.
  • 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 the 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 updating process will start and needs a few minutes to be finished.
  • After a succcessful installation you can read the ''Install from sdcard complete'' message and the receovery menu is available again.
  • Select 'Reboot system now'. Alternatively you can perform a factory data reset here by choosing 'Wipe data/factory reset'


Suggestion: After flashing but before using any GPS app, please calibrate the magnetic field sensor by running a compass app and meanwhile drawing eights with your phone in the air. You can check with the compass app wheter your sensor is calibrated well before and after. Tutorial: https://youtu.be/M0tK0zWXUXU

Edited by seaste at 2017-1-16 23:39 \n\nHello:
I just discovered an issue in the bluetooth system.
I paired with a hands-free device that I already used with other phones before without problems.
Once connected, on a regular and continuous basis, the phone disconnects and reconnects over and over and over again. Indifferently being active as blocked.
I have not tested with other audio devices yet.
I have a smart bracelet, but I do not notice anything unusual, possibly because it requires little synchronization time.
I tried to put in "white list" everything related to bluetooth and telephony without getting any improvement.
It is a real problem not to be able to use handsfree.
Any extra settings to try?
I have checked the working with my wife's phone, and everything works correctly. Therefore discard problems of the hands-free device.
Greetings.
PD. When my UMI PLUS ran android 6.0, it worked correctly with this hands-free device.

(Edited to add PD.)

Hello:
In the V3.01_20161228 Android N ROM, After having the phone in charge, had to restart it to ...

Basically all the issues mentioned by you now or anyone else in this thread are unique issues and not generally related to this version.
The possible reasons:
1. The system software on your phone is damaged. Flash with SP Flash Tool in Firmware Upgrade mode.
2. Your hardware is defective. Request your seller to repair or replace your phone.
So to answer you directly, there are absolutely no battery drain and touch screen issues with this or any other ROM versions released for this model.

The official version is the Android ROM V3.01_20161228.
And has some flaws that I have already commented. The version that you suggest is the one of February that supposedly is not official and that the tactile behavior also fails especially when lowering the notifications. The Sygic does work, but the battery saving still fails in manual disconnection and in the default reboot and storage.
If you consider the February version an update publish it separately.
Thank you

On the other hand, to stop giving assistance to a product with less than 6 months seems to me a disregard on the part of UMIDIGI.
Very good quality hardware, accompanied by a software with bugs and lack of will to correct small things that translate into a bad user experience, seems to me a bad way for your company.
A small effort to have satisfied customers can lead to higher sales.
Without going any further, my wife wants to change the phone and I am not sure I would recommend UMIDIGI for this reason.
Greetings.

Edited by zolotov23 at 2016-12-30 18:12 \n\nПроблема с дозвона в андроида 7.0. прошивку на 28 декабря 2016 года (как это было в прошивке 9 декабря 2016 года).
После прошивки телефона для очистки, звонилка работает и нет никаких проблем. Но стоит только ввести свой аккаунт Google, все ошибки, вызов не представляется возможным.
Удаление учетных записей - все работает, став - ошибка. Но это не в вашей учетной записи, а также доступ к дозвона телефонной книге,
которая , в свою очередь вытягивает контакты с аккаунтом Google. Если параметры дозвона к запрету на доступ к телефону
книгу , которая работает, но нет никакого контакта.

Did you flash your phone with the 'Firmware Upgrade' method. If yes, please try to login with another google account for test purpose. The account of a friend or a relative for example.
Beside that I cannot reproduce your case, nobody else has reported a such issue until now.

GPS now really works. And the e-mail sync fix is a relief. These were the 2 most obvious and annoying problems I had.
Thank you bencebacsi.

2. Access to google play store OK through WiFi.

On our local forum with many a problem.
http://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?s ... =1060#entry56240889

I sew through SPFT by firmware update.
the problem occurs as soon as I enter Google account. If you remove it all works.
Tried different accounts, it is still a mistake.
On android 6 this was not.

Then it somehow might be related to your location. Did you try not only change to English language but also remove the Russian language. Which kind of russian language are you using?
