So before giving a huge explanation on useless stuff with a prolonged explanation, as the title itself says this thread is meant only for users who ever willing to rebrand their Honor 8. Currently , i worked a bit with !nsideOut , One of the members of TeamMT and i successfully rebranded my Honor 8 FRD-L04(US variant) to FRD-L02 (INDIAN variant) . I request Dual sim users dont try this as the zip itself includes oem specific files of Indian Variant so u will loose the dual sim functionality.

A BIG NOTE : DO NOT TRY THIS ON EMUI 5 . ALL INFO IS EXTRACTED FROM EMUI4.1 AND SO ONLY MARSHMALLOW (EMUI4.1) USERS SHOULD TRY THIS .

Procedure for Rebranding to L-02:
  • unlock bootloader
  • Install TWRP recovery from here
  • reboot ur phone to homescreen
  • goto settings/storage and set sdcard as default storage
  • Download L-02 stock update.app [Emui 4.1 B160][size 1.49gb]
  • Copy UPDATE.APP to sdcard/dload/
  • download and Install zip from the attachments or Download here
  • Now reboot to recovery through adb by using the command
    Code:
    adb reboot recovery
  • Once twrp boots up , search for the downloaded zip and install it from recovery.
  • Now poweroff from recovery.
  • use the 3 button trigger to install update.app (click VOL UP+VOL DOWN + POWER simultaneously)
  • Now u will find the update.app starts flashing.

Procedure for Rebranding to L-04:
  • unlock bootloader
  • Install TWRP recovery from here
  • reboot ur phone to homescreen
  • goto settings/storage and set sdcard as default storage
  • Download L-04 stock update.app [Emui 4.1 B122][size 1.57 GB]
