I was the proud owner of a P2 until I dropped int and screen smashed. I was so happy about that phone and the way it went, Android 6, battery lasts two days, fast and no crashing... excellent phone! And I went and bought a second P2 to replace the one with broken screen.
Android 7 is rubbish! Battery doesn't last, apps crash all the time, I have to reboot my phone all the time. Sometimes even crashes when I unlock the screen! THere is hardly any signal coverage, all the time signal loss. Terrible phone! You ruined it with the latest update!
OTA does not work, I only have Build number P2_Blackview_20170619 yet you annonce different and later ROMs on this site. I try to download and use with MAC computer and no solution! Only for PC! Copying file does not work because you download file and its NOT A ZIP!!!!
Blackview, get your act together!
I am sorry to hear you dropped your phone. Unfortunately the Flash tool to re-flash the ROM are only for Linux and Windows and there is not surprisingly no support from Mediatek for Apple computers.
It is also advisable to not
restore your apps from Google or locally when you change the Android version, but better completely re-install them from Google Play store. The symptoms you describe happen very often when using apps from an older OS version.
What you could try in first place is to reset your phone completely, but please make sure to backup all of your data first, as it gets lost.
wipe data/factory reset in recovery (this will delete your data/settings):
- Power off and then press Power and Volume up together for around 10 Seconds
- be sure that the little arrow points on recovery (select with volume up, enter with volume down)
- Then the open android with red triangle+"no command" is shown press Power and Volume up together again
- wipe data/factory reset
or via the settings menu in Backup & Reset choosing Factory data reset.
This runs a factory reset. But please be aware that all you data gets lost, so please backup them in Google or locally.
Another possibility would be to run VMWarePlayer on your MAC. This installs a virtual machine on which you can install any Windows or Linux OS where you can then use the SP FlashTool to re-install the ROM and if you like the older Marshmallow (6.0) version you seem to prefer.
