1.) did you use model-term "Y300-0000" or "PLK-L01" to get your code?
2.) did you enter the product ID shown at your phone or the product ID generated by the external code-generator app?

1) I used "PLK-L01"
2) I used product ID from my phone

I captured the screen just to be safe. Below you have the edited version of the scren capture.

I reported this issue to Huawei Malaysia last week and today they call me back and provide me the unlock code for my phone. Now I can unlock my phone without need to faced the crappy Huawei website.

    Get Bootloader Unlock Code + Avoiding the "you must use a phone account" message

    EDIT: FORGET IT, THIS METHOD NO LONGER WORKS AS A SHORTCUT

    Thanks to piskr for his original thread on rooting :good:

    Got my H7 today, wanted to unlock the bootloader and root immediately...

    However, using the url found in various threads - Mod Edit: Links Removed didn't work.
    I got a message a lot of users on here have seen:
    "Sorry, you must use a phone account to submit this application."
    What did work:
    • Get a Huawei account (if you haven't already!)
    • Use the Chinese site...
    • DO NOT CHANGE TO ENGLISH! - This redirects to the site which fails
    • Mod Edit: Links Removed

      attachment.php
    • In the first drop down, choose the middle option (SmartPhone)
    • The second drop down is the device list, my H7 has the model number PLK-L01 - this is not listed, so I used the nearest equivalent which was the PLK-TL01H
    • Serial Number goes in the next box.
    • MAIN IMEI goes in the next box
      (Device code is not required on the Chinese site)
    • Fill in the Captcha
    • Hit the blue button

    You should then receive a yellow box below the form with your unlock code in :victory:

    (blanked out mine here, obviously!)

    Now unlock (using the rest of piskr's post), get English TWRP from StripedShark here and enjoy your freedom :D

    EDIT: this may not work any more - see here
