UMIDIGI Plus E V3.02_20170216 ROM - SPFT + OTA release

This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V3.02_20170216 (Android 6.0.1) firmware
for UMIDIGI Plus E


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

UMIDIGI Plus E is not a different model, it's just a new brand. You can update your UMi Plus E smartphone with this ROM without risking its usability and without voiding your warranty. It is an official update for UMi Plus E.

If you are updating an earlier version, it is recommended to flash this ROM as 'Firmware Upgrade'!

Changelog:
  • January 2016 Google security patch applied
  • Rebranding from UMi to UMIDIGI
  • Minor bug fixes


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SP Flash Tool
Resources:

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

>>>>> ROM: 20170217_g9v57_kw_u3_4m.rar <<<<< - Extract the .rar file before use. The scatter file (MT6757_Android_scatter.txt) is inside the extracted folder, together with the other components


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(DIGI) Plus E 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(DIGI) Plus E 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.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OTA (recovery) update
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: UMDIGI_Plus_E_V3.02_20170216_update.zip <<<<<

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 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.

This is most unacceptable, postponing the 7.0 update further and further. Umi should not promise something on which they cannot deliver. They advertised this phone as being able to update to android 7 out of the box, and still 4 months later still nothing. Most irresponsible.

While I am satisfied with the hardware and performance of the phone, this is a deal breaker and i will not be buying any more umi phones in the future.

I think people are allowed to complain and criticize UMI on their lack of updates and communication. What you want does not really matter in the grand scheme of things - Android 7 is a step up from 6 in every way.

Honestly chance, every time someone mentions Android 7 on this board you instantly try to discredit their criticism and proclaim that Android 6 is fine and that 7 is not needed. It would benefit everyone if you'd try not to be so dismissive, because if you want to stay on Android 6, you can do that anyway.

Hi All,

Recently purchased this phone first thing it did was update to this version of software. I have a few problems that I'm hoping you can help me with both of which I've already sent as feeback in the wireless update app without any response.

1) The most annoying one is the SmallWindow error when using Google Play Music. I subscribe to this service and I'm not willing to move away it should work but unfortunately this Umi baked in app is causing problems. I wouldn't mind if you could at least disable it but you can't. Are there any solutions? I've had a look around and can't find any although it seems the most recent updates to other Umi phones has solved the issue. If this is so where is the update for Umi Plus E?

2) Bluetooth is a bit sketchy it doesn't seem to have the best of ranges and breaks up when listening to music on bluetooth headphones. Hopefully this can be fixed with software.


Any help with either would be great. Thanks in advance.

Hi, I am using TWRP recovery in my Umi Plus E,
I am unable to update from Settings --> Wireless update.

If i do update from SP flash tool/ Recovery mode, will it restore my recovery to stock recovery.

Will it erase my data?
Please help.

Hi,
In SPFT you can uncheck the recovery and userdata partitions to keep your original recovery and user data. If you install the OTA update from TWRP recovery, it will work as the stock recovery, so your user data won't be erased. However due to its not perfect compatibility, installing a system update with TWRP might cause a boot loop, so I don't recommend to do that.

Impossible to use SPTF because my device is not recognized.
I tried everything ... Windows 10, Windows 7 ... Even by installing drivers VCOM, nothing works!
