Question [SOLVED] Installing voice typing on Huawei Honor 3?

Hi all,

A friend of mine who bought a Huawei Honor 3 on a Chinese website has a problem with Google voice typing.
He installed Voice Search, Google Search, even Google Text-to-Speech but it was maybe not useful, and he has no voice typing button on his keyboard, neither on his input settings. Tried with different keyboards, like Kii Keyboard, there is the button but nothing happens when he taps it.

We tried to follow this guide here to flash Gapps for MIUI but it didn't work, it only resulted in getting errors about Google services stopping.

Here are more details :

- Android 4.2.2
- MIUI 1.6
- baseband IMC1202_PENTA
- kernel version 3.0.8-00839-g0b7d2c2 jenkins@shzdea05 #1
- build number HN3-U01V100R001CHNC00B113
- model number Huawei HN3-U01

I know this model isn't so popular over here but hopefully someone can help us out

No any idea guys? I know Chinese phones aren't so popular here but isn't there an universal way to get voice typing?

For anyone wondering how to install voice typing, I've found a solution.

First of all, download the latest update for the stock ROM here : http://www.needrom.com/mobile/huawei-honor-3/
It's the one from December 2013. Download it and put it on the SD card, then go on software update and apply the local update.
If you have trouble downloading it, please reply here or send me a PM, as I have it on my Drive.

After this, the phone will detect another small update (less than 30 mB), it should be called HN3-U01V100R001CHNC00B119 (or HN3-U01V100R001CHNC00B119SP01).

After rebooting, voice typing should be working
Finally!
