Well, got the OTA pushed (20190716) and updated to newest ... there is a Euro patch/update available.there is a new update
We all got this or similar one for Euro. Have you noticed/check to see if your camera/app is working 99%, front & rear ?? When I open the Camera app - I get a black/blank screen (see below) - this is not "improved" to me (Umidigi - are you reading this ??)Changelog
A) Not everyone cares about the camera on their smartphones.I think the HW might be faulty on this phone. I suggest no one buys this until this is solved. Too many people with camera issues!!!! Avoid at all costs!
The A5 Pro is being promoted & offered as having "near" mid/high end triple camera and it is deceptive advertising, regardless of the intro/pre-sales/promo pricing ... or, else - some of us might've stayed with Xiaomi or similar brands with "average" camera specs, but one that works out of the box - brand new, without going thru 2 OTA updates & patches in less than 15 days. It does not speak to this growing company's technical competence !!A) Not everyone cares about the camera on their smartphones.
B) You are talking about a $99 (CAD$125), even if I wanted a better camera, the rest of the specs cover for the low price.
Hi great post i fully agree.OK - tech update - I've managed to lauch & use ONLY the wide angle main camera to open & take pictures, without freezing or blurry or both; and, to switch to the front camera. Now, it is at least not solid DOA & unusable at all, but it is still below, well below, expectations as advertised - Umidigi promised but not, and, we wait again for V1.4 to come out next week (hopefully) to fix more issues.
Caution - my attempted fix might, or might not, work for you or anyone else - proceed at your own risks. Over the years, I've soft bricked (but recovered successfully) a # of smartphone by flashing, rolling back & updating firmwares, partitions and patches. For those that aren't fluent enough in English, please read carefully & do it slowly, one step at a time.Hi great post i fully agree.
How did you get this working? What versions did you have to flash in what order with what ota with the flash took etc. Id settle for what you have working, my front camera doesnt even start! I need to be able to make video calls otherwise this is one expensive junk brick to me.
What firmware version are you on ?Hi Everybody,
there is yet another problem with the camera. The main camera will not focus on anything that's located further than half a meter or so, ... Any ideas?
Well, given how "unstable" the stock rom is - not sure if this is the smart thing to do, unless you are well versed in rooting Androids & coding your own open-sourced custom rom. It sounded like you might've soft bricked your A5 Pro & turned into an expensive brick/paperweight.Hello everyone
UMidigi A5 Pro TWRP from z7ykLon
I flashed the , but the internal memory is 0mb, I do not know what to do
I am on 1.3 (European) firmware version atm. I have never had any problems with turning the camera app on (neither before nor after firmware upgrade). So your advice will not help me, unfortunately. Actually I believe there is exactly the same problem with your camera now. The pix you've attached on here seem to be slightly out of focus, just like those taken with my camera.What firmware version are you on ?
Some of the steps that I've done & tried to get my main camera working in the past week:
1. Go into the Camera App, clear cache & clear storage. Reboot device & repeat clear cache & storage in the app. Then check to see if.
2. Reflash (local update) option from Wireless Update sub-screen in Settings>About
Thanks, good to know your front & rear cams are working, open & close w/o issues - unlike some of us - hopefully, it's a software/App issue and not hardware, early production issues with the "highly acclaimed" triple camera as marketed.I am on 1.3 (European) firmware version ...
