Honor have now released the shipping version of Android Marshmallow for the Honor 5X - build B330.

In order to install, you must be on a stock build of B140 beforehand. I've written up some installation instructions for a couple of different scenarios below.

Stock B130

  • You need to update your device to B140 first. In the Settings app, choose the update option and apply the update.
  • After doing so, ensure the HiCare app is up to date in the Play Store.
  • Run the HiCare app and select 'OS Upgrade Early Adopters'. You will then be added to the list of devices that can download B330 immediately.
  • Re-run the Settings app, select the update option and install.

Stock B140

  • Run the HiCare app and select 'OS Upgrade Early Adopters'. You will then be added to the list of devices that can download B330 immediately.
  • Re-run the Settings app, select the update option and install.

B130 or B140 based Custom ROM

  • Download the B130 stock ROM dload from https://mega.nz/#!sBRGkZqA!OjP6yXFtliJ0GUPU0CE9ZQxpf0gmhEekfH-I7cQp78k
  • Extract the dload folder to a microSD card.
  • Ensure you have lots of battery power!
  • Turn your device off.
  • Insert the microSD card.
  • Power on with both volume buttons held.
  • The stock ROM will now install - this WILL wipe your device!
  • When the device boots, complete the steps as per Stock B130 above.

B300 Beta ROM or Marshmallow based Custom ROM

[ Edit: There is now an official B300 - B330 OTA, you should not need to use the procedure below if you are on stock B300. ]

Currently there is no official B300 to B330 upgrade path - this is likely to change in the very near future. It you can't wait, however, there is an option. This route will cost you 15 euros in DC Unlocker credits!

  • Download the B130 stock ROM dload from https://mega.nz/#!sBRGkZqA!OjP6yXFtliJ0GUPU0CE9ZQxpf0gmhEekfH-I7cQp78k
  • Extract the UPDATE.APP file to a convenient location on your PC.
  • Download DC Phoenix - https://forum.dc-unlocker.com/forum/modems-and-phones/huawei/155916-dc-phoenix
  • Ensure you have a DC Unlocker account with at least 8 credits - https://www.dc-unlocker.com/buy
  • Extract and run the DC Phoenix app.
  • Use the 'note' icon to select your UPDATE.APP file (ensure 'fastboot' mode is selected).
  • Turn your device off, then turn it on while holding volume down and while connected to the PC - this will enter fastboot mode.
  • Leave all checkbox selected, and press 'Update'.
  • Your device will be flashed back to B130 - this WILL wipe your device!
  • When the flash finshes, hold down the power button to turn off, then turn on as normal.
  • When the device boots, complete the steps as per Stock B130 above.

Hopefully this is useful - any issues, post below. :)
