Code:
 /* 
* Your data will be lost! Backup before doing this.
* You'll still get OTA updates.
*/
Prerequisites
Step 1:
Copy the December OTA to your SDcard or PC.
Once you have taken a backup of your data, reboot to recovery. If you have the December OTA in your SDcard, select "Apply update from SD card" and select the file. Else if you have it your PC, select "Install update from ADB" and use "adb sideload <filename>" to flash it. The installation will fail. Reboot once. Now your bootloader will be downgraded to Nougat.

Step 2:
Extract D1C-562F-0-00CN-B01_Exploit.7z.

Step 3:
Extract OST LA properly. In the extracted folder right click on setup.bat, run it with administrator privileges. After the procedures are completed, open "OST 604 FIH Mobile" in the start menu. Connect your phone to PC and select "Reboot to bootloader" from recovery. Load the .mlf file from D1C-562F-0-00CN-B01_Exploit folder. Uncheck "Check System AP Status" and click next. You'll get a warning that the software versions don't match. Click OK and continue. OST will prompt you to erase data, accept that too. The OST will now flash the software. Wait for it to complete.

Step 4:
Once it is complete, the phone will reboot. Complete the initial setup. Congrats! You have successfully converted your Nokia 6 into a China variant. You can install the Google Play store apk from here.

Some cool features you'll be getting:
Code:
  • Long Screenshot
  • Screen recording
  • Smart alert
  • Double tap status bar to sleep
  • Direct call and answer
  • One hand mode
  • Network speed indicator
  • and more ...
To revert back to global, you can flash TA1021_PLE-558B-0-00WW-B01.7z

Sorry for ftm file missing.
I'm reuploading D1C-562C and D1C-562D (September 2018) firmwares.

Speaking of that, I've replaced the bootloader to older version to create following exploits:
- dm-verity command for flashing recovery and phone easily
- qualcomm EDL mode access possible
- accept bootloader unlock key

FTM file is not a big deal. It's just a matter of copy-pasting it to the extracted folder
Continue uploading new firmwares!

i do not recommend you guys do this, the chinese version doesn't have google location services and instead uses some chinese location provider which doesn't work with google location history and apps like google fit
