    s7yler, how do flash this onto SPFT tools? SPFT doesn't want to flash it since the battery is in there


    • s7yler



      Use newest version of SPFT, I use SP_Flash_Tool_Windows_v5.1516.00 and that works just fine.
      It can flash with the battery in the phone, no need to remove battery anymore. Just hit download and connect the phone and it begins to flash….
      Or boot into the recovery and update apply via ZIP and choose the OTA update file (in zip format) on the sdcard.

    hey guys just switch in sp flash tool to the fornat tab and do  a format exkluding the preloader then flash it and all fine you can create a new google account

    My computer doesn't recognise the Umi Iron when connecting while phone is off (debug mode is on). It does show a pop up that an unrecognised device is connected. I have universal ADB drivers and when the phone is on i see no errors in drivers. Because of this SP Flash Tools doesn't download to the phone. Where can I find a driver pack which I can use for the Umi Iron?

      I fixed the problem by connecting a different MTK phone (from which I could remove the battery), this allowed the computer to install the correct preloader driver which fixed the UMi recognition problem. 

      I also found that only flash tool v5.1516 works with it, the latest version (higher version number and latest on the website) doesn't flash. Also found that some USB ports work and some don't (for flashing, for anything else all USB ports work).

      Umi also has a really handy RootJoy program which downloads official roms (stock android as well as MIUI, Flyme, VIBEUI etc.)and flashes it for you.
