Ok guys bare with me. This is my first Thread. So it may look a little different then the others :laugh:
At least Your honor 7x will no longer be a paper weight


I posted last week that I do Indeed have a good TWRP Honor 7x BND-L24 USA Variant. Since then I have been getting hammered with requests for it. So being the great guy that I am, I have come to the rescue. NO MORE PAPER WEIGHT :laugh: I have also included TWRP 3.1.1. You will Find Direct download links below.


I have heard that Huawei will be releasing the firmware by end of next week. Go to play store and download Huawei Firmware
Finder(FF) To keep checking for it. Once there you can download it through Huawei FF.

When I did the backup TWRP gave me error 255 with the data.img but it did still back it up. I have the boot.img, system.img and data.img. data.img (data.img untested but should work)
If it does not I have a post here https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=75735265#post75735265 that explains how to use just the boot.img and system.img to recover your phone. IGNORE that it is for the 6x. It does indeed work with the 7x

If your phone is bricked and do not have twrp
1.Turn off phone

2. hold volume down while plugging in usb cable from your pc or laptop. That will put you in fastboot.
Tutorial here https://www.xda-developers.com/how-to-root-honor-7x/ on how to download and install ADB tools.

3.. Download TWRP 3.1.1 for honor 7x here https://drive.google.com/open?id=1dzP5ie7vQEn_dGfZHI383bt2sFxwtcTb


For people with TWRP installed

1. Download My TWRP backup here https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Udc4thELESZ4n_nXYmx6loQtTkjHOqSy

2. Extract the zip file to your ext, sdcard.

3. Boot phone into twrp.(Bricked phones hold volume up and press power to launch twrp assuming it is installed.

4. Select restore in twrp menu then choose sd card then the backup folder.

5. Flash the boot system and data img files

6 Reboot.

NO more paper weight :good:

Oh if anyone has twrp 3.2x that works with this with 7x BND-L24 do share please

Well hope this was not to bad :laugh:

Hit that thanks button. Yea that one under my post on the right :laugh:

Hope this has helped

Didn't work. I got to the "booting now" screen and was stuck there forever. I had to restore my old System and Boot partitions to get back to normal.

This does not work. Restoring data leads to error 255 and restoring just boot and system leads to an unbootable system. Also, the link provided does not help one bit. Can you please try to explain here? Thanks.

Is this the only know method to get back to stock. i tried to uninstalled exposed and somehow eneded up stuck in the erecovery boot loop? very lost any help would be greatly appreciated.
As long as you flash the boot.img first it will wok I tested it myself on my wifes and daughters phone and it worked Perfectly. i did not go into detail to do it correctly because there are tutorial's on here that explain how to flash those files

sad days. do you happen to know of any other alternatives? should i made a backup in TWRP before i rooted and did anything?
i have an idea, maybe you can make a backup not just including the system, data, and boot but other stuff. Because I accidentally wiped everything, and I changed the vender to a10/tl10, and that bricked the phone even more. And the data img doesn't work. You can fix it with this https://forum.xda-developers.com/oneplus-5/help/error-255-twrp-t3739468. If someone has a working bnd-l24 or bnd-l34 can you give me everything in the backup?

So you first do that then you do the rest?

I want to get behind and support this, so much, .But the OP is not registered user, so cant even verify their reputation.

I am late to this device and thread, but my phone will arrive tmw.

I would like to know if this is the only current available restore method for BND-L24?
