Hey guys

I just flashed my Mate 20 pro (no root, no unlock, pure stock) via project menu (put files into dload folder, enter *#*#​2846579#*#* in dialer and flash update) with following files:

https://support.halabtech.com/index.php?a=downloads&b=file&id=97210

Still testing a bit, but Supermacro mode is here and everything is super smooth ...

But be aware, this is a full firmware package. This will erase/wipe all your data on phone!
Better have a backup

this website is just useless for download files, ask you to register, then once they have you email and other info, you can t download, asking you more "privilege" in order to be able to download... pls put it somewhere else

can u be more informative with the steps?
i am on 153 can i flash 187?
thanks
Since it's a full update (meaning it wipes all your data) I guess it'll work.

Get the correct firmware, check the CUST value of your current firmware that's written in brackets:
Mine for example is 9.0.0.187 (C432 blabla); meaning C432 is Europe

CUST overview (sorry, it's in German)
https://www.huaweiblog.de/firmware-update-was-bedeutet-cust-emui-und-co

So get the correct version of your choice, download and unzip.
Then you'll see a folder called dload. Put that folder on your phone. Just use transfer files option when you connect you phone to a computer (dload folder must be in root directory of your internal/external sdcard).

Open the dialer of your phone and enter the combination; the project menu pops up.
Choose option 4. Software Upgrade

When you put the folder to the proper location, flash progress should start

Oh ok, right. I forgot about it since we use that site quite often ... I'll put the files somewhere else and provide a download link.

Hey, while you're at it could you do the LYA-L09 variant please :) their damn stupid site wont even let me sign into an account I just made.
I notice that they just use Google Drive to host the files. I noticed while downloading the wrong file :( so couldn't you just post them links?

if anyone is interested here is the Google Drive link to Laya-L09C 9.0.0.187(C432E10R1P16) flashed onto my LYA-L09 fine

Yes needs memory card, I tried via USB and volume up & power didn't work

I got it to flash via from a usb stick by putting the copying the dload folder from Laya-L09C 9.0.0.187(C432E10R1P16) and selecting memory card upgrade via the dialer menu. unfortunately my Google Pay still doesn't work but i guess I have to stop being cheap and unlock bootloader and root

    HI,

    can confirm, this way works flawlessly to update C432E10R1P16 9.0.0.153 to 9.0.0.187 without any problems.

    Upgrade Guideline in this file contains these lines:

    Version upgradable to this version
    LYA-L29 9.0.0.108(C432E10R1P16)
    LYA-L29 9.0.0.122(C432E10R1P16)
    LYA-L29 9.0.0.146(C432E10R1P16)
    LYA-L29 9.0.0.153(C432E10R1P16)
    LYA-L29 9.0.0.187(C432E10R1P16)

    I wouldnt recomment to upgrade any other phones C632 or so .... with this file to avoid breaking Google Pay.

    Hey i've a problem with flashing the firmware to my phone. I've downloaded the firmware LYA-L29 9.0.0.187(C432E10R1P16) for my LYA-L29 with 9.0.0.153(C432E10R1P16). Extracted it to dload and upload to the root of the device. The project menue said Warning no memory card. Force update didn't worked as well. Had someone an idea why?

    If some other had a problem with downloading the Zip File, I uploded the file to Google Drive.
    Laya-L29C 9.0.0.187(C432E10R1P16)_Firmware_9.0.0_r3_EMUI9.0.0_05015KYS( Support.Halabtech.com ).zip
