Dear beta testers,

You can find the SP Flash Tool package of a working beta release for UMi Z with the version number of V3.02_20170427 here. Please download and flash it, then post your feedback in this thread.
About the skills you need for flashing and the possible risks, please carefully read the information on the following page: http://community.umidigi.com/thread-5265-1-1.html


Disclaimer
Please note, experimenting with the system software of your phone may permanently brick it driving to lose your warranty. Important! Retailers are not obligated to deal in warranty with devices ruined by overwriting the system software by the user. Once you have made your smartphone useless by bad flashing and you are not able to recover its factory state, you are not allowed to request your seller to repair or replace your device for free of charge. Furthermore, UMIDIGI is not responisible for any damages or data loss caused by flashing a beta ROM provided in the beta section of this forum. The software contents provided in the beta section are made or approved by UMi/UMDIGI but they do not make the official parts of the device that was sold by your retailer. If the hardware of your UMi Z smartphone gets damaged due to the bad working of an unofficial software, only reflashing the stock ROM will not reinstate the warranty status of your device.
YOU ARE WARNED!



VCOM driver: Windows 10 already can install it automatically or you can use this: MTK_Driver_Auto_Installer_SP_Drivers_20160804.exe


The list of known bugs:
  • You might lose your IMEI numbers after flashing this ROM, preventing you to connect to mobile networks*
  • No Google framwork and apps**
  • The on-screen navigation buttons cannot be disabled (the hardware touch buttons still work)
  • LED Notification setting crashes
  • S-View cover feature missing
  • Front camera max video resolution is 480p
  • No Laser focus



*To avoid losing your IMEI numbers, first flash only the preloader partition, then (as a second process) the full ROM content in Firmware Upgrade mode. If you still lose your IMEI numbers, you can restore them with the SN Writer Tool.

**To install Google apps (Gapps), follow the instructions below.
1. Install TWRP, then install SuperSU in TWRP with using the tutorial and resources in the following thread: http://community.umidigi.com/thread-2962-1-1.html
2. Download an Open GApps package (as your choice between pico and full) and install it with TWRP.

The OTA update is almost ready to be released but as a reaction to the testers' feedback, some unplanned modifications are being processed causing some delay. According to the latest info, the SP Flash Tool format of the first final version is going to be released on this Saturday (I'll share it here in the ROM section as soon as possible), then after a few days of testing, it will be pushed to the OTA server as an official and wireless system upgrade.

Google has just released v7.1.2 patch with about 120 security fixes. Do you think you could add the security fixes to your ROM please ?

I really don't understand why all the rush for the update!

Hardly a rush at this point! Uni made a big thing of the coming update to N in the presale advertising, and O is already well on the way and N isn't here yet for us.

Its not being negative im a good customer of Umidigi, first i had a UMI SUPER then a UMI PLUS and  ...

New models but with older processors inside. That is the key. The Crystal is just an idea yet, not a real product, so now we can talk about UMIDIGI C Note and UMIDIGI G. Both of them are built with MT6737 SoC, which received the Android 7.0 SDK from MediaTek much earlier. So, that's possible to release them with Android 7.0 out of the box. Maybe you could realize that, even the newer C Note and G will be released with Android 7.0, while the Z and Z pro is receiving a 7.1.1 upgrade now. So basically the Android version is specified by the SoC and usually only the higher standard SoC platforms receive Android version upgrades.

When will UMIDIGI Z PRO , which you say its the flagship get Android 7.0 ? i think its about time  ...

Please don't be so negative. The two models are almost perfectly identical, only the back camera setup is different. So, you can install and run this beta ROM even on a Z Pro and only the back camera won't work. It's Android 7.1.1, not 7.0. The final Android 7.1.1 version will be released on the same or almost the same day for both UMi Z and UMIDIGI Z Pro.

You may just wait for the final OTA update. The beta testing is recommended to experienced users only and they don't have such concerns. I used to flash MTK phones for 10 years already (more than 4000 units flashed) but if I had at least one version of stock ROM available, I've never even could permanently brick a single one.

1. fast charging is not fast
2. there is no point to hide on-screen buttons  

1. Fast charging works as same as with earlier versions: constantly 12V with around 1A charging current. Please measure with an external tool to confirm your statement.
2-3. mentioned in the list of known bugs.
4. Localization will never be perfect. There are more than 200 languages available, Russian is just one among them.

No, you can not use a Beta version for everyday use of life

The installation of the ROM Beta is essentially to raise the bugs ... and it is better to be an experienced user, if it is not the case do not ...
