Lets start with credit, Thanks to @Claritea for sharing this firmware which helped in fixing my Honor play with random config/display in about phone section.

I had a honor play with locked bootloader but it was garbled, in the sense, about phone section was messed up, there were lines on home screen and as it was demo version, I wouldn't be getting update on this phone but @Claritea helped me fixing this phone.

I had this in my about phone section (and bootloader was locked)

I am trying to convert my recently converted Honor Play COR-L29(C636) to C432. Earlier this device was COR-AL00(C675) which I converted to L29(C636) by your guide. My main purpose for this was to get Widevine L1 which is available on the Europe version. I have learned that C432 does have Widevine L1 and would like to attempt the very same by flashing the first dload(which changes build number to Chipset Botson) and then flash this file (Huawei Honor Play COR-L29 Cornell-L29A 8.2.0.101(C432CUSTC432D2) Firmware Android 8.1.0 EMUI 8.2.0 05015FUC androidhost.ru). I'm flashing (8.2.0.101) because it worked the first time for AL00 to C636. If there is any help or caution you can provide then please do so.
