This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V3.02_20170317 (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. Another reason can be if you experience unexpected issues after updating via FOTA.

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:
  • Updated Camera effects - Live Photo and voice capture added
  • Optimized Camera UI
  • Improved WIFI stability
  • Improved GPS performance


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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: 20170318_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_20170317_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'


Kind request from users:
Please report any kind of new issues you experience after installing this update 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.

Just realised after the OTA update of this ROM, I no longer can get the auto rotate function to work ...

That issue has been confirmed and I've reported it to the engineers, so it will be fixed in a later update. Until that, in such cases just reboot your phone and the orientation sensor will work again.

Hi !

I have experienced a brutal battery drain after the OTA update.
The phone was getting warm in my pocket, like it was running apps even with the screen off.

UMI, please fix this battery drain/optimize the battery usage.

Thank you very much!

Hi,
I have just updated my Z. However since the update the front camera light stays on all the time.
if the phone is turned off the light goes off but comes back on when the charger is plugged in.
Anyone having the same problem or any idea how to fix this.
thanks

Hi!
No, I don't have this problem..
It really doesn't happen when I charge my UMI Z.

Sorry, can't help you for now..

No problems here with this update, nor battery drain or camera light.
