How to receive Right Root in this new Device
F1_Play From UMIDIGI Brand


Attention this UMIDIGI F1 play is different from UMIDIGI F1 .

This Thread is not for beginners and all the steps made will be down the warrancy at own risk.
This tutorial will guide you through the process of installing a custom recovery image
on your MediaTek based UMIDIGI smartphone and to receive right root access.


Some possible issues that might need your attention:

Custom recovery images of different Android versions are not always interchangeable. For example, you can't install an Android 5.0 recovery on a 4.4 system and so on. Any exceptions are mentioned in the list of recovery images.
At most of the devices, after flashing the TWRP image, first you have to boot into recovery (TWRP) or the stock recovery will be restored.
At some devices, after flashing TWRP, first you have to root your phone (install SuperSU or Magisk) or it won't be able to boot into the system.
Once you've rooted your device, you won't be able to install OTA updates anymore but the only way to update your phone is flashing with SP Flash Tool. Flashing a stock ROM (with the stock recovery) will make you able to install OTA updates again.
At some devices (or specific ROM versions), when powering on your phone to boot into TWRP (power + vol-up), after about 3 seconds, you have to release the power button (even if your screen is still black) and keep only the vol-up button pressed until the TWRP welcome screen pops up or the recovery will be skipped and your phone will boot into the system.


What you need:


Driver for Preloader USB VCOM mode:
Windows 10 already can automatically install it or you can use this:
MTK_Driver_Auto_Installer_SP_Drivers_20160804.exe

SP Flash Tool application:
SP_Flash_Tool_v5.1812.rar
Adb Command for Windows pc:
Command adb for dos/windows


A custom recovery image that fits your phone
Scatter + Recovery twrp






Test 1 Phase......



@Everybody
the custom recovery twrp test1 is already in testng phase.....................

Procedure to how to flash the Recovery into Umidigi F1 Play

Now is not possible to flash the recovery throught flashtool because there is a bootloader locked so we must go ahead with adb command.

1) download all the previous files;

2) in Android F1 Play in "Settings System details" enter in about phone ot make visible the developer options click several times on about phone ....

3) in Setting System will be now shown the developer menu' enter and switch to visible OEM unlocking allow the bootloader to be unlocked.

4) reboot the phone and with power menu' and volume + in the same time enter in booting menu'.......select fastboot mode.

5) Now in windws pc run the commad cmd or open a ms-dos window and enter in the adb folder ;

6)write the command fastboot devices...and the phone connected with the usb cable must answer the command that is connected..

7) use the command fastboot oem unlock and wait....

8) copy with windows command the recovery twrp.img in the adb folder and renamed it with recovery.img
to flash in the phone use this command : Fastboot flash flash recovery recovery.img
the process will start ...and wait it...

9) make this command to reboot into recovery mode: fastboot reboot.
10) now take the buttons pushed with power menu' + volume + and select recovery mode....

11) in recovery mode will show probably russian language...skip the alert with the arrow back and enter in details menu' on the right top to change the language...

NOW NOT REBOOT INTO ANDROID SYSTEM WITHOUT MAKE THE ROOT STEPS
because the android system protection will flash automatically the recovery original and all of you will lost the recovery twrp flashed before
and all of you will repeit all the preious steps again

How to Root your Umidigi F1 Play

How to Root:
Enter in the Recovery mode.....
You need to FORMAT the partition given TWICE a simple deletion is not enough it seems in Android 7 and upper.
Follow this procedure in this exact order and should solve most problems.

1. Install TWRP through flashtool or adb command and then directly restore in recovery (twrp) do not enter in android system under penalty of twrp deletion and restoration of the original recovery.
2. Select Wipe / Advanced / select date Yes to confirm. When finished, choose Restart, then always in recovery.
3. Choose Wipe Advanced Format DATA again type Yes to confirm When it ends choose Restart always in recovery.
4. Select Wipe and select cache and Dalvik scroll to confirm When it finishes choose Restart and always in Recovery.

5. Now install Magisk 17.1 use this version tested
Magisk 17.1 (Tested)

you can restart in the android system and you will find magisk installed.

For a full root you have to install from the play store busybox app and install the busybox binaries at least in sbin and bin (system folders) the app will guide you
Busybox see here:

Busybox in the google playstore
I prefer this app to others because of its track automation that doesn't require much experience.

the custom recovery twrp test1 is already in testng phase.....................

I'm surprised this phone isn't getting more noticed! There isn't much options for sub-$200 phones with USA bands from what I can tell, and this supports the usually omitted 4G Bands 2 and 4. From what I can tell, UMIDIGI is lacking a bit in the software optimizing department, but the hardware here looks pretty great! Sounds like this phone has real potential for the sub-$200 US market.

Question Project Treble GSI images?
After applying the custom recovery image; has anyone tried the [gsi] project treble images noted in the UMIDIGI F1 post to see if they work on the "play" verison of the F1 device? https://forum.xda-developers.com/and...reble-t3917284

Understood @ghost45 I wanted to know if any of the owners of the umidigi f1 play have gotten any of the project treble images to work like those on the umidigi f1 device?

Update... Used blissrom for about 3 hours. When I restarted the phone it would not boot. It kept getting stuck in a bootloop. I still have my recovery but I cannot get it to boot. I use my nandroid backup but it still will not boot. I will need to use SP tools to recover my phone.
