I've npticed that too. Device feels generally snapier, apps opens faster. Battery time is great too.

Do you have any special optimization settings for battery?

I have a last question..
After installing update via OTG flashdisk, do you think my phone will go on receiving regular OTA updates?

You will receive update notif as long as you are using official firmware.

my bootloader is unlocked and am rooted, i still receive and can download OTA, but i never do it. i always flash manually

Worked for me for CLT-L29C432 coming from PIE beta.

The firmware finder method doesn't worked for me.

Thanks.

eRecovery+Firmware Finder worked for me

Gave me a bit of a scare because, even though I verified of firmware is compatible in Firmware finder on PC... In the eRecovery it showed the L29C432 instead of L09(I know they were both in same folder)

Had to use a laptop plugged in via cable, create wifi hotspot and put DNS in IPV4 settings of the new network location created properties... But it eventually worked...

Encountered one occasional glitch so far:
When pressing clear all apps in task manager... It shows the animation that all apps are cleared... But they remain there... Even clearing them again doesn't do it. Clearing apps one by one works. This happens from time to time

Thank you for the guidance so far.

I managed to start update for C782 in eRecovery using method with FF and DNS change. But, I chose .168 version and the installation started for .159. Also, device name was different (Charlotte instead of CLT).

I went that route and after download verification i got recovery failed with a big red exclamation mark!

I have a problem with update process. The dialer code doesn't work and I cannot access to service menu.

Worked well, thank you OP!
After the update I have a question: When the phone is connected to the PC do you have the downgrade option in HiSuite? It should be in the software upgrade menu, but in my case there is only a message that inform me the phone's firmware is up to date.

Got tired of waiting for OTA and went down to the Tech Store and bought at OTA Cable, since I run Mac. Went flawless for me to upgrade C432 L29 with this method. I came from .161

Finally on Pie EMUI 9. Had everything backed up on Huawei Cloud (just for this occation) so everything went smoothly even after the full wipe

    WARNING: Your data will be erased...

    Use these two links:

    CLT-L09C432

    https://androidhost.ru/1iPC

    CLT-L29C432

    https://androidhost.ru/1iPD

    1. Download the service firmware from the links above for your respective model and extract the "dload" folder from it. It will contain a file called update_sd.zip and two folders - CLT-L09_hw_eu and CLT-L29_hw_eu, each with a respective secondary update package, leave these in the folders and delete whichever folder isn't relevant to your device e.g keep the L09 folder if you have the L09 folder and vice versa.

    2. Drag the dload folder to an exFat formatted USB drive and have an OTG cable handy as this phone hasn't got MicroSD support.

    3. Plug the OTG cable with the drive in the phone and now go to the phone dialer and dial *#*#2846579#*#* and go to Software Update and then select SD upgrade.

    4. EMUI 9 will start installing and your data will be erased after. Note: OEM unlock will be blocked, this is a known bug in EMUI 9 for now and should be fixed in a later update.

    5. Enjoy EMUI 9!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey! Android 9.0.0.195 C432 is available in FF and now when check, it says 'approved' :D

    Got an OTG Cabel, got now 2 downloaded FF-Files (Update.zip & update_full_CLT-L09_hw_eu.zip).

    Can I such easily Update from 9.0.0163 to 9.0.0.195 like you discribed for upgrading from 8 -> 9?!

    nope.. the 9.0.0163(C432E5R1P9) from FF (and this one - first post) is still a developer version (says HiSuite) - update not possible
    i try this.. (rename files to update_sd_CLT-L29_hw_eu etc..) but the flash process will stop.. this is wrong version..
    FF also get an error ... this sucks
    (C432E5R1P9patch01) is the real ota version

    A further note for you guys:

    1. This guide does not work for C782 devices or other country branded devices. It will work if you rebranded to C432.

    2. These files are official, just been hosted on a third party mirror and Androidhost.ru is well known for uploading all service firmwares for Huawei and other smartphones.

    3. If you got an error, either there is a problem with how you set the files up on the USB. It should look like this:

    dload
    ------- update_sd.zip
    CLT-L09 or L29_hw_eu
    ------- update_sd_CLT-L09_hw_eu.zip

    Happy flashing guys!

    Hi.
    This method works on phones with a locked bootloader?


    Yep it works with locked bootloaders. Simple and easy to install.
