UK Honor 8 EMUI 5 / Android N BETA Test

Recommended Posts

Good news Honor 8 owners we are giving some of you the chance to help us test out EMUI 5 and Android N on your Honor 8. Sounds great yeah? Just remember this is going to be pre-release software, things may be broken, you may end up struggling to use your phone, but that's all good we want you to help us find & squash the bugs.

So what do you need to do to get the new stuff on your phone? Well that is easy, you install an app, enroll on the project and then towards the end of the month we will be pushing out the OTA to those that have had their applications approved.

So what do you need?
- An Honor 8 (FRD-L09)
- To be based in the UK.
- To have an active SIM card in your phone.
- To be on build number C432B131
- It cannot be bootloader unlocked, it cannot have a custom recovery or be rooted to receive the OTA.

You can get the APK for the BETA app & the guidelines for how to install and enroll here. Once downloaded install it on your phone, when you run the app on your phone you will be prompted to either log into an existing Huawei ID account (the one you use to download EMUI themes will do) or to create a new one, once done you can accept the terms

To enroll on the BETA test you will need to be on build number B131, an OTA to update UK Honor 8 from B120>B131 will be rolling out today, once you are on B131 you can enroll on the BETA test.

Numbers are limited, when we hit the limit of enrolled users that is it. This is a project to help find bugs and issues before the general rollout of future updates for the Honor 8. It is not a general public rollout. We will be hosting discussions here in the forums to discuss bugs etc and to post details about future updates for the BETA.

If you have problems either installing the APK, signing into Huawei ID or enrolling on the BETA please leave the following details below and we will get back to you.
