Another method, working
You need it:
1. Firmware Finder: https://pro-teammt.ru/projects/hwff/...Version.action
2. Change the dns that assigns the dhcp to your router or in your computer, go below to follow how to create a wifi hotspot with the windows 10 guide
3. eRecovery method.

So let's go.
Unpack firmware finder wherever you want And run it.
You will get the following image: Figure 1

Then click on "Common base" and enter the model of the phone along with the region (in my case "CLT-L09C432") in the search box



You will probably be offered 2 special firmware with the same labels as the menu (see picture).
To know which of these two firmware is approved for you model, first click on the 'Changelog' box below only the Changelog text (as well as blank). Then, by right-clicking the Changelog text, you select 'Copy'. Then click on the 'firmware checker' as in the picture below.



Copy the 'Changelog' link to the first field, and enter the IMEI of your phone in the second field (of course, click on "Check"). This step is for both firmware. When you get "Firmware approved for install" <- Important, if is not approved you wont update to the version youre checking.







The next step is to register the update on the Firmware Finder DNS server. We will do this in the following way. Click on 'DNS Update', paste the link that is 'approved' and click on 'Register'.

Router -> After that, by clicking on 'Copy DNS to clipboard' you will copy the dns address that you need to set up on your router in the 'DHCP' section, Go to the router settings, change the dns and apply this new settings, restart router and shutdown off the phone, wait until router is on again and working, Enter eRecovery mode (Hold Vol UP, Plug the USB cable between Phone & Computer, until you boot in eRecovery, select the option 'Download latest version, Connect to your wifi and the update will start.

WiFi HotSpot Win10 -> 'Copy DNS to clipboard' you will copy the dns address that you need to set up in the new HotSpot WiFi network adapter you created http://woshub.com/how-to-create-a-wi...on-windows-10/ & How to change the DNS server in your computer https://support.opendns.com/hc/en-us...-Configuration Enter eRecovery mode (Hold Vol UP, Plug the USB cable between Phone & Computer, until you boot in eRecovery, select the option 'Download latest version, Connect to your wifi and the update will start.

When boot to eRecovery, connect with the new WiFi you created in Win10 (remember the name and the password of it), not your usual WiFi, and will works, i tried and its working fine.

***NOTES
### Disable IPV6 on your router or internet main network card, some users experienced issues because of it enabled.

### Doesnt works in EMUI9. So if you have Android Pie Beta this method wont works. Try this https://forum.xda-developers.com/hua...2-l09-t3883557 usually works. Will be erased all your personal data with this option, make a backup before.

Doesn't erecovery always wipe user data? I tried this, saw the update in erecovery mode too but didn't continue as I haven't backed up my data. Also, do I need to disable all passwords/pins etc?

No, I don't think so. I followed this procedure yesterday and no user data was deleted.

I will go through with the same in a few hours then. A big shout out to team-mt guys for this! They seem to be doing exactly what FunkyHuawei does but letting everyone use it for free. I'd rather donate to them than pay FH.

There is no reason for this not to work for C782. As long as you select the correct firmware in the Firmware Finder application based on you phone model and IMEI.
