Seriosuly, you've got us trying to fix it for you just to run omni!!
For windows 10 try disabling driver signature verification and install the drivers

Thank you for this enlightened comment. Omni was just a ROM that I tried because I had a good experience with it on a previous device.

If you read carefully my previous posts I mentioned already that I tried many different drivers and that each time the outcome was negative.

My sincere thanks @Paulicat, I did flash Havok and the SIM card was recognized. Phone/Data work seamlessly. However the IMEI information is still not displayed in the settings, I don't know why.

I will keep looking for my ROM of choice. Thank you for your help.

P.S. Tethering works fine on Havoc.

One issue I'm having is flashing opengapps (any version) on lineage (or any rom without gapps included) gsi latest build.
Everything flashes fine but no gapps.
So I checked in adb shell and instead of gapps installing to /system/system/priv-app they are being installed to /system/priv-app which is not the right folder.
I don't know the technical reason we have /system/system/ but we do, and I know other phones have it too, maybe its an A+B thing I don't know.
I don't think it's a lineage problem because the same thing happened in Omni.
And I can't seem to use magicgapps on this phone, always an error during module install in twrp.
Any suggestions on how to get gapps onto gsi roms without gapps built in?

Ok I asked in the lineage gsi thread and got the right answer.
Backstory...when I first tried gsi roms I was using the original rom that came with the phone. I didn't update at all.
I had no issue installing gsi and flashing gapps.
After some days I decided to update to the very latest umidigi rom to make sure I had up to date kernel/vendor etc.
Seems the latest boot.img removed a critical piece of info for gapps to install correctly.
There is supposed to be a kernel parameter "slot_suffix" that must have been removed from the latest boot.img.
Two choices to get around this problem.
One, flash old boot.img (assuming the parameter is in there which I know it must be because I flashed lineage and gapps without issue before updating)
Two, modify opengapps to force it to go to the right system as root layout.

I modified the gapps as recommended from the lineage gsi thread:

Make the edit to as follows:
# Detect A/B partition layout
# and system-as-root
#if [ -n "$(cat /proc/cmdline | grep slot_suffix)" ];
#elif [ -n "$(cat /etc/fstab | grep /system_root)" ];
# device_abpartition=false
# SYSTEM_MOUNT=/system_root
# VENDOR=/vendor
# device_abpartition=false
# SYSTEM_MOUNT=/system
# VENDOR=/vendor

One last thing I found.
This google camera app is old but it actually supports the full 48mp.
The pictures come out quite nice, no telephoto zoom support though.
This is not my work and I stumbled on it googling like crazy and cannot find the original thread.
I believe it was initially buried in a miui forum.
<edit>Found original source</edit>
I'm on latest lineage gsi right now and it's going very good so far.
On latest lineage google camera installs straight from play store, however it only sees 4.9mp as max...if we could get one of those gcam apk modder guys here!

Do you use ARM64-AONLY or ARM64-AB?

Has anyone managed to capture what's new in the 20190816-1750 update? My phone started updating before I managed to read the changelog...

Edit: Umidigi has published it on their FB page. Here it is.

I installed the august update too, and what i have read on russian forum is that they combined the two cameras from the former update to one, so now you have one camera app.
the have seemed to have fixed the screen freeze issue ( i never had any trouble with this ) and fixed NFC
and they added cellbroadcast app.

Has anyone manually updated to the latest update while having your bootloader unlocked?
