This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V3.01_20170321 (Android 6.0) firmware
for UMIDIGI Z Pro

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


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





Changelog:
  • Improved camera performance
  • Optimized Camera UI
  • Improved WIFI stability
  • Improved GPS performance
  • Vague manual camera focusing in macro mode fixed


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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: 20170321_g15v97_kw_u81_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 UMIDIGI Z Pro if the standard method doesn't work.
It's especially useful if your phone is bricked or is stuck in bootloop
1. Connect your UMIDIGI Z Pro 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_Pro.V3.01_20170321_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.

Can you guys do something with the in-call volume?I can barely hear anything!

I think there is a bug when you route audio routing through Bluetooth.If you are streaming audio through Bluetooth and get disconnected or disable Bluetooth , the audio doesn't come out through the speakers and you need to restart the phone to get the speakers working again.

Edited by dunn0w at 2017-4-1 00:22 \n\nHere are my problems with this update.
1. Wifi is verry slow, on my old phone One Plus i reached 100 mbit's at home, now only 15mbit's
2. Scrolling through the phone, like pages settings, windows, facebook etc, does not feel smooth. 4gb, octa core should be much faster.
4.  If the phone issent used for 20 mins orso, if u try to unlock it with fingerprint you have to do it multiple times (like it has to wake up)
5. When using camera, the phone gets very hot.
6. 4G (lte) get's only 13mbits, instead of 150 i had with the One Plus.
7. Please release the source, so we can make a custom rom.

The VoLTE issue is under investigation. Unfortunately, that service provided neither in China nor in my country, so we cannot test its working locally.

Hi BB,

http://community.umidigi.com/thread-7203-1-1.html

VoLTE was working untill the 20170228 update, it gets messed up immediately after 20170321 update ... I know you guys are investigating this.

Request you to release an update ASAP as a fix for this .. please.... We are unable to place calls due to this issue.

Please take this up as high priority.


Thanks,
Rv

Vijay,
As i mentioned in the other post, just go through the procedure in your thread and flash the 2/28 ROM on to ur phone using SP flash tool on your computer assuming vcom drivers are installed in pc.

Thanks,
Rv
