I found few problems

- Charge is very slow now
- Wifi is toggling off everytime. Even if I'm just a few steps from the router wifi is turning off and data is turning on. Is annoying... and expensive
- Google services crashed a couple of times

Is there a post to downgrade back to the previous version please? There's much work to do in this Nougat ROM

Comments

It was an Android version change, so if you experience such issues, please perform a factory data reset in 'Settings --> Backup & reset' to get a clean installation of the new Android 7.0 system.   Post time 2017-3-18 14:48

The update instructions are very good - much appreciated and well done to the Umi team for puting them together.  

I wasn't able to get the OTA update to work so in the end I had to update by downloading the update zip file and forcing it.

The only problems I've experienced are:

1.  I've noticed that battery life has reduced quite a bit.  I've turned the fingerprint scanner back off by deleting the stored print to see if it is causing the fast battery drain.  The scanner worked really well and almost first time every time after the update - I'd turned it off in the previous build because it would constantly look for print unlocking when it was in my pocket.

2.  The ear volume seems lower than it used to be (yes I've turned the volume up to full).  This is funny because the speaker volume when playing you tube is far louder (better) than it was previously.

Edited by kripterya at 2017-3-15 04:08 \n\nOkay, so I updated my Android.The notification tab looks awfull but the what bothers me most is that the Harlequin notification LED is not working while on stand by, only in charging mode. Even before the update I was not able to use different colors for different notifications. Now it's simply dead. Has anyone experienced the same problem?
Any suggestions on how to solve it?   


Later edit: So I randomly selected different colors in the LED notifications menu. The LED works but I cannot set the color. No matter what color I chose it lights up in whatever color it pleases (first green, not white).

Edited by badelhas at 2017-3-15 17:27 \n\nAll of this makes me conclude that UMI is a terrible company regarding the updates. I believe that customs roms developers work better than your enginners. Very very dissaponted. Will not recommmend UMI to anyone, ever.

Well... after doing some tests this WiFi issue is only with the power saving modes. When disconnected WiFi works fine
