Perhaps we can work with this?

Wonderful App, Unfortunately Huawei patched this vulnerability.
After 5 unsuccessful attempts, The Phone reboots itself to prevent the algorithm from working.

We dont know if this is a security fix or not. Maybe with some luck its a bug that could be circumvented somehow.

There is a workaround for the reboots described in this pull request https://github.com/SkyEmie/huawei-ho...loader/pull/16
I don't know if it is merged, but the guy forked the repo and implemented it I think -> https://github.com/mschabhuettl/huaw...ock-bootloader

I've read through the commits, Looks like a possible solution _ But I'm not seeing any success stories yet.
Also, continuously rebooting your phone maybe over a 1000 times is not really a good idea.

Have you tried this on your device or waiting for someone else to take one for the team ?

I note that fastboot files are included in this methods. Is it even possible to get latest huawei phones to fastboot?

Hi there,
I don't have any Huawei device right now. Only one P20 Pro for my wife but I unlocked it with a code back then.
I had a Mate 30 Pro but sold. Waiting for some stable google services solutions and I will buy again.

Yes no problem at all.

ADB reboot bootloader works just fine, the usual white bootloader screen. No FRP lock though, which explains the "missing" switch in Developer Options.

Fastboot reboot, then reboots the phone as normal.

Didn't try any other commands.

Any way to try it without erasing all the data? After hours of installing all the google apps it's not easy to just erase it.

Unfortunately not. Although if all data is erased, it should have successfully completed its task and then you have a unlocked bootloader.
If no unlocked bootloader, your data should be kept on the device.
