Hi all,

Is it possible to force flash the dual SIM ROM on the single SIM phone? Obviously assuming I can get the bootloader unlocked and without using the funky Huawei tool as it costs money as far as I understand.
Also if possible will then the phone receive rom updates via OTA?
Thanks

normal dual sim have 2 diferent IMEI , conversion via FunkyHuawei you get only one imei with 2 sim

thanks, having a single IMEI shouldn't be a problem as long as the two SIMs are hosted on different networks. (at least this is my interpretation).

I see in another thread even if you do it the dual sim adapter doesnt fit in the single sim variant.

Hi all, any news on this ? just see here https://forum.xda-developers.com/hu...de-how-to-root-debrand-remove-retail-t3788326 that THERE IS NO HW POSSIBILITY TO CHANGE SINGLE TO DUAL SIM, SO EVEN IF YOU GO FROM L-09 TO L-29 THERE WILL BE NO DUAL SIM!!! NOT EVEN IF YOU PAY TO FUNKY
what is the reality ? I wrote to funky because on their site they say not usable with Emui 8.0.1 and I have a CLT-L09 8.1.0.128 (C432) fw installed - emui 8.1.0 Android 8.1.0, waiting for an answer:fingers-crossed:

CLT-L09 has same hardware as CLT-L29 can be converted to dual sim with FHP20SingleToDual, no problem.
CLT-L04 has different hardware and can't be converted to dual sim.

But once changed, where can I get the dual tray from? Any links from anyone who has done this mod? I'm sure I read that the official dual tray will not fit. Thanks.

I already get unlock code bootloader.

Call them to official line huawei uk. 2 days delivery to your email.

Not true. One IMEI can manage two sim. You find The problem is in that countries where there is a sim-lock, like USA and Cina. This because IMEI is locked by operator. In Europe there aren't that problems !

I see in another thread even if you do it the dual sim adapter doesnt fit in the single sim variant.
Not true. But maybe you wrong understand. In first period there was no sim tray holder for P20 pro and someone (like me ) tested the sim tray holder of Mate 10 Pro. This works for both sim but it is too longer.
Now you can find the original sim tray holder of P20 Pro both from Huawei assistance and also from international resellers ( find it with google, like ali....)

I wrote many time in that thread : the RED sentence it isn't true ! With funkyhuawei method you can rebrand a CLT-L09 with single sim in a CLT-L29 fully working dual sim ! And I say this because I done this with my P20 Pro ! And many other poeple (for verified direct experience 5 people, but much more they said they did it). So I don't think that only few specimens of P20 Pro have a different hardware !!
I can say that all P20 pro have the same Hardware : both CLT-L09 and CLT-L29.
For your Last ask I must say that Maybe you read wrong because funky made specific tools for P20 Pro with EMUI 8.x.x . That info do you read is specific for older phone, like Honor or Mate

But once changed, where can I get the dual tray from? Any links from anyone who has done this mod? I'm sure I read that the official dual tray will not fit. Thanks.

Did you read the rest of the thread? You didn't need to say he/she is wrong. That was from May and later people updated in June saying they did verify the dual SIM tray fit and works. Perhaps it was too early then that not many people knew and later discovered solution.

Excuse me. Sorry. I used words that are too strong.
My fault.
I do not read last two posts before mine.
My fault.
The first post I don't read say: "Oh. Thank you..."
The second say:"Call them to official line huawei uk...."

Too much interesting too loose.
My fault.

Just wondering if there has been any progress on this? I have rebranded from CLT-L09 to CLT-L29 and have purchased the official dual sim tray but the second sim will not get detected :(

Would rather not use the FunkyHuawei tool as it perma-locks the phone.

*Bump* - Can anyone please advise? I'd really like to convert my L09 to L29 to enable the second sim. I really don't want to use the funky method, due to serial change and bootloader re-lock etc.

Many thanks for your help.
