  1. 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 termsTo 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.Name:Country you are using the phone in:Current Build Number:Model Number:Issue:
  2. Hey SeanKelly. You're not in an ideal situation there. The update will be pushed by Honor France, not us in the UK. You either wait or try the manual update process detailed above. Just ensure you have done a full Huawei Backup before attempting the flash.
  3. Hey Goriilasan, it sounds like either you are trying to flash the wrong update.app or the B330 download has corrupted. Make sure you have cleared both the internal dload folder and the SD card dload folder. Download the B330 update again on a PC and transfer the file across and try once more. If that fails again you'll need to wait for the OTA.
  4. I will update the second section soon with a URL to get the B170>B180 update.
  5. Some Honor 7 owners are on build number B100 or B170. If you are one of them you can still update to Marshmallow. Firstly if you are on you just need to update to B121 manually then B180 will appear OTA and then you can follow the instructions above to get onto B330 or wait for the OTA. So here is what you need to do if you are on B100. Download the B100 > B121 update.zip from here. Once you downloaded the firmware, create a folder on your SD card called "dload". Move the update.zip file to the dload folder you created on your SD card. Then using the phone head to Settings>Update>>Menu>Local Update and the update.zip file should then be recognised, just tap on the file and the phone will do the rest. The phone will boot into recovery and flash the new firmware, as mentioned earlier sometimes the phone will be reset during this process. Please ensure you are prepared for this eventuality and make sure everything is backed up. Once you are on B121 your phone should receive the B180 update OTA, from there you can follow the instructions above or you wait for the B330 OTA. So here is what you need to do if you are on B170. Download the B170 > B180 update.zip from here. Once you downloaded the firmware, create a folder on your SD card called "dload". Move the update.zip file to the dload folder you created on your SD card. Then using the phone head to Settings>Update>>Menu>Local Update and the update.zip file should then be recognised, just tap on the file and the phone will do the rest. The phone will boot into recovery and flash the new firmware, as mentioned earlier sometimes the phone will be reset during this process. Please ensure you are prepared for this eventuality and make sure everything is backed up. From there follow the instructions in the first topic and either manually update or wait for the OTA.
  6. Honor 7 owners in the UK can now update to Marshmallow (Android 6.0 & EMUI 4 Build no B330). The files have been published on our website and the OTA is rolling out across Europe. For those that do not want to wait for the OTA you can now manually update your Honor 7. There are a few pre-requisites though. You need an Honor 7 running the original EMUI recovery. Your Honor 7 needs to be running build no B180. You ideally need to have an SD Card to copy the files to. You ideally need to use a PC to download the files, extract the correct parts and transfer them to the correct place on the SD card (this can be done on the phone, it's just a little fiddly). You need to create a backup of everything, as there is a chance your phone will be wiped, use the Huawei backup app to backup apps and messages and ensure all media (photos, music & video is on your SD card). You need to download the B330 firmware from here. (For other countries please contact your local Honor team and request the correct URL). Once you have downloaded the firmware, create a folder on your SD card called "dload". Extract the update.app file from the download and move it to the dload folder you created on your SD card. Then using the phone head to Settings>Update>>Menu>Local Update and the update.app file should then be recognised, just tap on the file and the phone will do the rest. The phone will boot into recovery and flash the new firmware, as mentioned earlier sometimes the phone will be reset during this process. Please ensure you are prepared for this eventuality and make sure everything is backed up. If the counter doesn't reach 100% or the update fails there are several reasons. There wasn't enough space for the package to properly unpack, often it has install correctly anyhow. Just reboot and check the new build no. The download was corrupted at some point during the process, please download it again or wait for the OTA to roll out to you. Your phone wasn't running the correct build number, please wait for the OTA to roll out to your build number. Your phone wasn't running the correct recovery, rectify this and then try to install once again. You tried to install firmware for the incorrect country, please contact your local Honor team and request the correct firmware. Something else happened, sometimes things just don't work. Please wait for the OTA to roll out to you. If you are on the Honor 7 BETA test and you officially signed up your phone SHOULD have received the B330 update OTA recently. If you manually flashed the B313 or B320 files you will have realised that you cannot use the "local update" anymore. As you are not on the BETA test IMEI list your options are to manually flash and wipe your phone or again wait for the OTA. If you are on build no B320 you can flash the B330 firmware, the process is similar to above. Download the firmware from the link above and ensure you have done a backup, AS YOUR PHONE WILL BE TOTALLY WIPED DURING THIS PROCESS. Again create a folder on your SD card called "dload". Extract the update.app file from the download and move it to the dload folder. Ensure everything is backed up and then turn your phone off, press and hold volume up, volume down AND the power button all at the same time. The phone SHOULD boot into a firmware flashing mode, it will search for the dload folder on either internal storage or SD card for the update.app. If it finds it, it will start the flashing process. Again if the counter doesn't reach 100% or the update fails there are several reasons. There wasn't enough space for the package to properly unpack, often it has install correctly anyhow. Just reboot and check the new build no. The download was corrupted at some point during the process, please download it again or wait for the OTA to roll out to you. Your phone wasn't running the correct build number, please wait for the OTA to roll out to your build number. Your phone wasn't running the correct recovery, rectify this and then try to install once again. You tried to install firmware for the incorrect country, please contact your local Honor team and request the correct firmware. Something else happened, sometimes things just don't work. Please wait for the OTA to roll out to you. So once your phone reboots you should have build number B330 installed and all is well. As mentioned if it fails please wait for the OTA, fiddling about with different firmwares is risky and you may end up bricking your phone.
  7. Do you own an Honor 6+? Fancy helping us test Marshmallow out? Just fill in the form below before the 22nd of January and we'll then hopefully roll out the update via OTA. Loading...

  11. Hi there B100 is available on www.hihonor.com here . B010 is quite an old firmware. What country was it bought in?
