TWRP 3.0.2 by jemmini and megthebest
TWRP by Sujejsjejej

1. Extract the MediaTek USB VCOM drivers.zip file and install the Preloader VCOM drivers by running the InstallDriver.exe file.
2. Extract the SP flash tool file and run flash tool.exe.
3. Extract the content of the ROM archive.
*Just only a compatible scatter file is enough for this process but for safety reasons I recommend to use the one contained by the folder of a factory ROM package, that you downloaded from this official site.
4. Open the scatter file, that you can find in the ROM folder.
5. Leave only the recovery line checked, then double click on its Location field and brows for your device specific custom recovery image file, that you can find in the list above.
6. Click on the Download button and connect your phone to a USB port of your computer. The flashing process will start automatically and it needs just a few seconds.*
*At some models you have to press one of the volume buttons while connecting to USB but most of them don't need it and you mustn't press any of the buttons.
7. Now the custom recovery has been flashed. You may remove the USB cable. You can boot your phone into recovery by powering it on while pressing the volume up button. At some models this action starts the bootloader mode and you can boot into recovery from its menu. In such menus you can navigate with the vol-up button and select an item with the vol-down button.

Rooting

Installation

1. Download the SuperSu from the link below.
2. Transfer the zip files to your Internal Storage/SD card.
3. Reboot to recovery mode.
4. Optional: Do nandroid backup.
5. Locate the SuperSu and install.
6. Wipe cache/dalvik.
7. Reboot to system.

FAQ:

1. Xposed is working?
Answer: Yes.

Flash Grorkmod latest version
Wipe cache and dalvik

[MOD] Grorkmod
[Official] Xposed

2. Camera Issue after update?
Answer: Try to factory reset after update.

3. Fingerprint Sensor not recognizing?

Answer: Try this work around

6. What is Secure boot img.?
Answer:
The factory boot images of UMi Super ROMs are insecured (unlocked), that make some security sensitive apps (banking apps typically) useless since they refuse to run with a root access alert.
To solve a such issue, you may replace the factory boot image by the following secured (locked) one. Just download this image file, then in the flasher window double click on the path field of the boot partition and brows for this file.

Secured boot.img


7. No BIG E/3G/4G
Try this mod by @noskojv
Universal NO BIG E/3G/4GBIG

8. Less audio output?

This will be a no thread without you mate. Specially you recovery! :highfive:
Better to say: no thread without the Jemmini TWRP's.
Because Umi Super is one of the "bad boy" and need a kernel fix for touch screen (jemmini is the Master for this..)
So many thanks to Jemmini, and is correct to wait for his link about TWRP (please also donate to jemmini for his great work).

What means "scatter file invalid" in the SP Flash Tool? I get this with the latest ROM version after extraction and trying to use the .txt Scatter file in the Tool!?

Does it matter if I have running the latest ROM version on my phone and use the Scatter file from a previous ROM file in order to install TWRP only?

    Hi everyone i have released a new LineageOS 13.0 rom for the Super. I used @joe2k01's tree as a base and worked from there.

    My Thread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/development/rom-lineageos-13-0-umi-super-t3597458

    My changes:
    • Cleaned up the formatting of the tree so its more inline with the standard tree.
    • Removed the keylayout patch in favor of a proper fix
    • Removed OTA support (I personally do not think its important and i have no desire to use it)
    • Renamed the device name from SUPER to super device codenames are not mean't to be capitalized like that.
      [*]Converted the Menu button to be app switcher (There is no reason for a dedicated menu button) I have set the default long press on app switch to be menu so its still possible to use it though
    • Moved to an open source lights hal instead of a propitiatory one.
      [*]Set the notification light to act as a button backlight (Currently its only blue) with configurable brightness and length in settings.
    • Disabled Snap in favor of the AOSP Camera for now.
    • Forced API 1 Camera Hal for now
    • Took the media_profiles config from elephone p9000 seems to help with third party camera apps.
    • Removed the CM Screen Recorder (No alternative for now)
    • Removed the CM Sound Recorder (AOSP one is now included and is fully working)

    CM13 for the UMI SUPER

    Dear All, I just compiled CM13 from scratch. The blobs and kernel are extracted from Super v3.01_20160616 ROM (SPFT version). I didn't have the chance it thoroughly. It seems to be working fine but of course there will some bugs :) . The source it based mainly on the latest elephone p9000 from deepflex, the R9 cm12.1 from wuxianlin and the guide of shulianghan with addition of some personal adjustments. I would like to thank all of them.
    I'm a newbie and it's born for fun anyway it could be of your interest.

    Currently I can't post external link, below some print screens.
