UMI Zero Gets CM 12.1 Based On Android 5.1 via RootJoy

by Joel 0

Back when UMI Zero was released, it came with Android 4.4 KitKat OS out of the box. The company had promised an update to Android Lollipop after the release, but the release was delayed considerably. However, now UMI, staying true to its promise has just released the CM 12.1 version for the UMI Zero handset. This means the users can now upgrade their phones to Android 5.1 Lollipop. The process is made simple as the update can be flashed using the company’s RootJoy software.

It’s good to see a small time manufacturer supporting its year old products. Most Chinese handset makers often forget their smartphone once launched and more often than not, you may not get an update for the device after a couple of months. UMI seems to be breaking that trend. The company’s RootJoy app further simplifies the process of flashing a new ROM, making backups or even managing applications.

Even UMI Iron has received an update to its Flyme OS ROM. Users can access and install both the ROMs directly from the RootJoy app.

Further, the company is has launched the Make A Wish Campaign on over 6 different websites. You can read more about that from the UMI Community.
