What is Ultimate Multi Tool?
Ultimate Multi Tool or better known as the UMT, is a utility software used for Android Customization. Previously it was only available Qualcomm SoC-based smartphones, but now it is also available for Mediatek SoC-based smartphones as well.
There are a number of cousin tools of the same parent UMT, suited for different types of smartphones, assigned with different types of tasks.
For example, if you want to flash a custom ROM on a Qualcomm SoC-based smartphone, then you will have to opt for UMT QcFire, similarly, there are a few more tools that do similar tasks. We will discuss all of them in detail, in the upcoming section(s) of this article.
This is one of the best tools that can be used by an Android Customization enthusiast to do all the tasks from a single tool itself. All you need to do is to connect your smartphone to your PC, install the UMT software, and you are good to go. Although make sure that you have all the necessary drivers for your smartphone.
Functionality of UMT
Flash Firmware: As the name suggests, the UMT can be used to flash smartphone firmware, it doesn’t matter which SoC your smartphone has, either Qualcomm or Mediatek, you can use the tool. Not only firmware but the UMT can also be used to flash ROMs (stock as well as custom ROMs).
Update Core OS: If you have a Mediatek SoC-based smartphone, then this tool can also be used to update the core operating system of the smartphone. It doesn’t matter whether the smartphone has the Stock Android or any Custom UI (MIUI, OxygenOS, etc), you can update the OS via the Ultimate Multi Tool.
Bypass FRP Lock: Factory Reset Protection or Google FRP, is a protocol implemented from Android Lolipop to protects the smartphone and information, including screen locks and data encryptions. FRP lock restricts any unknown users from factory resetting the system. You can use the UMT to bypass the Google FRP lock.
Restore Factory Settings: This is a very useful function of the UMT, you can use UMT to factory reset the device. Let me tell you why it is useful since you can factory reset any smartphone from the settings itself, but the thing that makes UMT different is that you can even factory reset any device, whether it is stuck in the bootloop or the device is only showing a black screen.
Driver Updates: Whether you have a modern smartphone or a very old smartphone, the tool will install the compatible driver for your smartphone. But it will need your internet bandwidth to download the driver(s) from the internet.
