No. Before Update, GPS had better Results. Faster and more Satellites.
After Update, the Fix isn´t  ...

Whatever knoedel, the update works good for me.

I have tryed it yesterday. Installing ROM Android_6.0_20161209 without this Update.
GPS Fix came after 20 sec. with 10/16 Satellites

Then i Update with GQ3268AH_Ulefone_V1.0.9_20170406.
GPS Fix came after 17 Minutes with 4/9 Satellites. A very bad result, i think.....

I flash the Phone new without the Update and Results with better GPS Fix was showing during 17 - 30 Seconds.

I have try to flash ROM Android_6.0_20161214. With this ROM GPS Fix is very fast and better then Original ROM. But E-Compass stands still and isn´t shown in Sensorlisting.

So i think, both ROM are for different Hardware-Version from Ulefone Armor.
For ROM Android_6.0_20161214 the Update isn´t available. So its only for 20161209........

Now, my Armor runs without this Update V1.0.9.... and it runs as good as before...... so i don´t F**ck my Phone. Sorry, Tedski you tell us bullshit.

I think, ROM flashing the Armor isn´t something for stubid people.... but i can it and so i had compared it in some ways with results you can read here!

What i can say...... An Update that crashed during the reboot isn´t that what costumers want to see!!!!! So, Ulefone had made not a good Job!!

Since OTA_Update 20161209 it isn´t possible to go into recovery-mode with "Power + Volume up". It crashed with little green Android on the floor and red mark!!!

This occurred everytime, if your Phone was Factory-Installed with first ROM ( not available online ) and OTA with 20161209.
If there is an external SD-Card inside it don´t help to remove it before choose this Update 1.0.9. The Phone crash after reboot into Install-Modus.

Only flashing manually the Update 20161209 helps. But this is really a pain for us costumers.  After manually Flash, you can install 1.0.9 OTA! Your Phone is now cleaned and Factory-Reset greets you!
But this Update brings more pain then features. Much fun, installing all Apps now and downloading all Maps and Music again and again and again....... reconfiguration all Apps is the feature you get with flashing ROM manually. Don´t forget, to remove your SD-Card before flashing, or you lost all personal Data!!!!

Naturally, Ulefone use this forum for each dissatisfied costumer to cool down...... But Ulefone " be warned by me" thats not a World for Kindergarten and chinese Boys how plays with Cellphone-Components like that LEGO-Bricks!

Jiayu has gone away, because there was no Software-Expert alongside the Company. It appears to me, that Ulefone wish to go the same Way!

Hi knoeelfan, so the only way is to download firmware from http://ulefone.com/download/armor.html (which Version 1 or 2? They never explained the difference ) and then the OTA 1.0.9 can be installed?

In my opinion thats the only way.

Which Software is installed now?
Take a look to "Settings" --> "About Phone" --> "Wireless Update" or down under this List "Custom built version".

The older ROM named 20161209 is named Version 2 ( that is realy a fault...) because the newer Revision 20161214 ( for other Hardware?) is named Version 1. Chinese Childs thinks not like Adults in the normal World......

You can not crosschange both ROM, because Version 1 ( 20161214 ) does not work in an Armor with other? (older?) Hardware. I have ordered my Armor during Presale in October 2016. It´s one of the first Armor, i think! The OTA Android 6.0_20161209 ( Version 2 ) came in December 2016, my Armor arrive to me at Dec. 23.2016. After unboxing and first SwitchOn the Message occursed "New Version available".

Next 4 day i give this Forum a Manual, how to flash the Ulefone Armor. The Manual from Ulefone isn´t perfect and the Flash-Tool from Ulefone is corrupted. The Ulefone tool search for a CheckSUM.ini but this File don´t exist in the unpacked Folder from the ROM. So, you can not flash because the Tool non-accepted this Rom.

Why in 4 Days? I have to ask a good friend to help me with better english. I am an old German and had learned english language at school 45 years ago. Since this long time, now i have written the first lines in english language. So i have to apologize for my bad english.

V1.09_20170406 will not load on my stock Ulefone Armor running 20161209. The phone is totally stock, never rooted or fooled with. Ulefone, what a joke. No quality control, no testing, no good.

I suggest you to give away your Armor off as quickly as you can, and take your mind off the Ulefone and their products.
It is waste of money, brains, and time.
