This is the SP Flash Tool release of the
V3.02_20170412 (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:
  • Gravity sensor freezing issue fixed
  • Wifi network search problem fixed
  • Error code display of microSD slot fixed
  • Optimized notification bar

Flashtool tutorial: http://bit.ly/SPFTguide

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 can automatically install it. Please make sure that your Windows is logged in with administrator rights and your computer has a working internet connection when first time connecting your phone.

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.

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.

Hi,
The OTA server was down for a few days but anyway It works reliably. That's a rented service,  ...

I was not referring to the down period of these last few days.
I have noticed after some flash on my side (to find the best/less bugged rom) that sometimes new OTA are found, sometimes not.
Personally, I don't care about OTA as I prefer to backup my app with Titatium and reflash all the system with SPFT. ^^

Hi, the new update did not fix my problem with auto-answer on handsfree.
Although I couldn't find the setting for it, before the March update the phone was auto-answering calls when I had the headset plugged in.

Now with April update, still no auto-answer, and it developed an additional problem.
When the FM radio is playing on my headset, a call comes in, I can't pick up because I am driving, the call stops ringing, but the radio never comes back on. I have to stop and start the radio in order to make it play again.

Thanks for your help.

Hi,
If incoming calls were auto-answered without your permission when using a handsfree, that was definitely a bug, that just got fixed now. If you need your incoming calls to be auto-amswered, you can use third party apps, just search for "auto answer" in the Play Store.
Your second issue is a real issue, has been confirmed and will be fixed.
Thank you for your report.

Some users requested that to be the notification bar not transparent. I don't know why that request got accepted but it has happened. That's the improvement.

When slide down the notification bar, the background change to black. In my opinion this is unconfortable because when you slide up instantaneous notifications, the background change to black too. Just remove opacity of quick configuration menu in notifications bar solve this problem, not change the background to black.
