D:\Android\platform-tools>fastboot flash recovery D:\Android\HuaweiUpdateExtractor_0.9.9.5\RECOVERY. img
target reported max download size of 471859200 bytes
sending 'recovery' (35570 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.932s]
writing 'recovery'...
FAILED (remote: Command not allowed)
finished. total time: 0.954s

So it's not a recovery issue.

How useful is the HiSuite backup ?
If I make a backup with it, will it be able to restore most user app's and system's data ?
I'd rather not re set everything up, and I'm afraid I'll have to retry to OEM unlock the device (so force wipe), even if it says it's unlocked (which it should have remained in the first place)

Hisuite can be used for back.. reliable one but not same as titanium backup. Backup WhatsApp on local and g drive. Zip the WhatsApp folder in internal memory and then copy to pc.
Rest other apps, via hisuite (can backup WhatsApp as well here).

You file should be in path D:\Android\platform-tools\ and not D:\Android\HuaweiUpdateExtractor_0.9.9.5\
I hope adb is installed under D:\Android\platform-tools\, if not, it will be udner C drive as C:\adb\
copy the recovery file whereever the adb is installed and then run the command
fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.1.1-0-venus.img (replace name with your actual file name)

Ok, so in fact fastboot OEM unlock status was not accurate, and something I didn't notice was the absence of dm-verity warning when booting (showing when it's actually unlocked)

May be. try moving the files and then flashing from that folder and see if it works.

Hello, I have an NMO_L31 (honor 5c - huawei gr5 mini) device and I have experienced a Failed (remote: image verification error) error when installing TWRP while my phone was unlocked before. have searched from a lot of technology pages to find remedies but all failed. But my God, Jehovah listened to my plea and brought me to @shashank123, I contacted him through XDA and I got him a phone number to make friends on the telegram, he helped me out I and I have overcome the above error. I would like to explain how to overcome the error that I tried. First, I went back to emui 4.1.2 (you can see the instructions then allow OEM unlock, then I update the OTA to emui 5, allow usb debugging when the update is complete. Shift + Right click on CMD (or powershell) and enter "adb devices" to see the connected device, then enter "adb reboot bootloader" then enter "fastboot oem get-bootinfo" To check if the bootloader has been unlocked, then enter the command "fastboot oem unlock (code)" to unlock if the relock bootloader, then if the bootloader has been unlocked then the purpose of the command to factory reset. If that is the case, then go to the phone and see if factory reset is complete. Then develop and reconnect to adb, check the device connected to the "adb devices" command then go to the "adb reboot bootloader" command to get to the fastboot and then use the command "fastboot flash recovery recovery_name.img" (for example : Twrp) "Finally, if the word OKEY appears, you are successful. If you can not solve this problem, please send a message to @shashank123 in XDA and ask for his phone number to make friend through telegram and regular help message because he does not often use XDA. Thank you very much Shashank for helping me. Thanks be to my god JESU CHRIST and JEHOVAH.

No problem at all mate. Helping through telegram was quick in real time rather multiple post or message and then waiting for response from each other. Due to time crunch, I opted to quick help rather keep you waiting all day long
Good you got your phone as per your requirement and able to do what you wanted. Thanks and Enjoy.


You can edit your comment to say "@shashank1320" (use without double quotes) rather Shashank123 as users may send message or qoute him and get no response as that user may or may not exist

Boot to bootloader again and see the bootloader state if locked or unlocked. Try unlocking it again.
