UMIDIGI Z Pro V3.01_20170408 ROM - SPFT + OTA release

Post time 2017-4-13 21:37:52 | Show all posts |Read mode
This is the SP Flash Tool + OTA release of the
V3.01_20170408 (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:
  • Gravity sensor freezing issue fixed
  • Wifi network search problem fixed
  • Error code display of microSD slot 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: 20170408_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_20170408_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 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.

sim cards not detected and calling not working after flashing , please help

Most probably you got your IMEIs cleaned. Check on the phone box for the IMEI's and use this tutorial(http://community.umidigi.com/thread-1375-1-1.html). It is said in the thread that you can loose your IMEI and that means no 3g/4g connection, no SMS and no calls for you.

You can expect a final Android 7.1.1 upgrade for UMIDIGI Z Pro in a few weeks.

Dear UMIDIGI Team,

I'm using UMIDIGI Z Pro for about 3 week phone is satisfactory but there are few things which have to be improved:
- Battery discharges very fast
- Why wifi sucks battery
- Noise should be removed from photos taken from camera
- Speaking speaker which is hold to ear is quite should be increased
If all of these issues fixed it will be superb phone

Hi and greetings,
Yes, I can confirm your issue. The same on UMi Z with the latest update, so maybe it's an intentional change. I'm trying to get some info about it. Thank you for reporting.

You can wipe the cache and/or user data with the stock recovery but you don't need it. Flash the ROM in Firmware Upgrade mode and you'll get a clean installation without keeping your old user data. Don't format anything or you might lose your IMEI numbers. You don't need to validate or change anything else in the default settings. Only switch from Download Only to Firmware Upgrade.
