This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V3.02_20170225 (Android 6.0) firmware
for UMIDIGI Z

Flash tool operation is recommended for experienced users only. Do not use it if you cannot understand the whole process!
UMI(DIGI) Z 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 Z is not a different model, it's just a new brand. You can update your UMi Z smartphone with this ROM without risking its usability and without voiding your warranty.
It is an official update for UMi Z.

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

Changelog:
  • Improved fingerprint sensor performance
  • Camera focus speed and stability improved
  • GPS driver updated and optimized
  • UMIDigi boot logo added
  • Other 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: 20170225_g15v97_kw_u8_4m.rar <<<<< - Extract the .rar file before use. The scatter file (MT6797_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 Z 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 Z 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: UMIDIGI_Z.V3.02_20170225_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 in the boot selector mode. It needs about 10 seconds or a little bit less if your phone was already powered off.
  • Here you can move with the vol-up button and select an item with vol-down. Select Recovery.
  • Your phone reboots into Recovery and 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'

Hi,
The serial number cannot be changed and it's simply not set in your phone but that's not an issue. The unique IMEI numbers are present and they are used to be identify your specific device.

Anyone has instructions on how to make an update with an Encrypted and Rooted phone?
When I try to update my phone I get stuck in TWRP with an error 7 message.

Hi,
You can update your phone only with SP Flash Tool. By rooting you've lost your system integrity what is checked by the updater script before installing the update.

Hello,
So I have flashed the new Firmware using the SP Flash Tool.
I have flashed only the System... I didn't check boot, recovery or userdata or anything else. Only the system. Apparently it worked just fine!Do you have any other recommendations? Should I flash anything else besides the system? Knowing that my phone is encrypted and that it uses custom recovery rom?
Regards,
Pedro

Hi,
Yes, even if you want to keep your user data, you should flash each partition except the cache and userdata.

Are you 100% sure that this wouldn't mess up with my encrypted partitions?
Have you tested it already? Why it is important to flash a new boot for example?
