Hello everybody, for serveral months i saw several people asking help to back to stock ROM
here we finally have a guide that saved me and can save you! ;)

Requirements:
  1. Windows operative system
  2. Multi Tool
  3. OFFICIAL stock rom (in this guide i'll use B370 for H60-L04) Download
  4. and the most important thing Huawei Update Extractor! Download

and let's go!

First of all open HUE (Huawei Update Extractor) and after selected UPDATE.APP file, extract system.img , boot.img , cust.img, recovery.img that we will flash on the phone, and put them in the folder where adb and fastboot are installed (in this case we use the multi tool directory).

now open cmd or command prompt and move on multi tool directory (cd C:\\Users\NAME bla bla bla\DIRECTORY TO MULTI TOOL)
now plug in your phone and enable Debug USB and type:
Code:
adb.exe devices (to control if your device is online, if not grant the permission on the phone)
adb.exe reboot bootloader

Now we flash all the files with fastboot
the order of commands doesn't matter
(MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE SYSTEM, BOOT, RECOVERY AND CUST .img ON THE MAIN FOLDER!)
Code:
fastboot.exe flash boot BOOT.img
fastboot.exe flash recovery RECOVERY.img
fastboot.exe flash cust CUST.img
fastboot.exe flash system SYSTEM.img

than reboot into recovery by doing
fastboot.exe reboot and holding only VOLUME UP button
than do all the wipe (cache and data) than reboot system

Easy right? :laugh:

Thanks for the guide! I used to follow the same procedure too but another alternative is to use multi-tool and use the unbrick option and follow the instructions. It super noob friendly:highfive:

Hi Guys,

i got the same problem here with my H60-L12

After flashing Beta Lollipop 5.1.1 i tried to go back to 4.4.4.

Now it's stuck in bootloop and now it keeps flashing the honor logo.
Tried to unbrick it with Multi-Tool and different stock roms but i cant get into recovery or the 3 button install method, only thing working is fastboot mode.
Any suggestions?

Thank you!!

ok, now i'm desperate.

Got different Stock Roms (4.4 5.8.1;4.4 B119;4.4 B310; 4.4 B316;), tried TWRP in different versions, even tried to reinstall fastboot drivers , same problem on Windows 10 and 7.
Only think working is Fastboot&Rescue Mode (White Screen, Phone UNLOCKED), but only when plugged in on PC with USB cable.
When plugged in charger, it just reboots and reboots i can't switch to Recovery or Fastboot mode and doesn't even charge the phone.

Maybe someone got any idea, did i use wrong stock roms? Do i have to use Rollback/Revert versions?

I've made a horrible mistake.
I was on 5.9.16, tried to downgrade by flashing system, recovery, cust and crc.
Unfortunately I've done it with B316, which is 4.4.4, so i got this annoying bootloop, in which i can't access recovery, bootloader or use the 3 buttons method.
It seems as if the phone tries to forcefully boot into system ignoring everything I do.
I tried draining the battery to turn it off, which worked, but when i charged it it tried to system boot as soon as there's enough battery.
Any ideas?

This worked for me! I switched from CM11 to the stable 5.1.1 release using your guide. Flashed B370 and then did a local update for the stable lollipop rom. Thanks a ton. :)
