Hey I got a question!
What happens if I download the update.zip
Extract it and then copy the UPDATE.APP file and flash it using the three button method?
Will my data be erased?

Another quick question,
the instructions were a bit unclear to me.
if it says my device is not verified, can I still register and install the update using eRecovery?

If you have registered in DNS network it will definitely show as approved if its not showing like that then you did something wrong.
Try again with the exact steps mentioned in OP.
well I'm sure the DNS is perfectly set because that is not showing the 404. it says something like Connected to TM servers or sth like that.

EDIT: @miststudent2011 You're actually right. I can't get the dns to work when I set it on my router. But it works when I set it on my phone. Any idea why? (I have a D-link dsl 2750u)

People with the DNS issues are you using the settings from the metro interface or the classic interface on windows 10?

This is an advice from me, don't update to pie yet. There are multiple people reporting battery drainage with Android Pie, so wait a bit, until pie is stable enough.

It's perfectly fine it's next iteration of the update. Just change the DNS and follow step 10 and 11 then it will get approved.

I change the DNS using my notebook, restart my router and test accessing the http://query.hicloud.com/checkConnect.action whit sucess. But in my phone using the same wifi that im using in the notebook, it ever show 404. So, when I enter the recovery mode it appears only the EMUI 8 that i already have.
Dont understand what did i wrong.

Hi there.. I followed the steps detailed by you and firmware finder did show approved for installation :- just wanted your feedback (before installing )on how stable EMUI is and do you have any battery issues.... am almost out of the house for close to 16 hours a day and cant afford to have bad battery life..

Also I have the indian variant of Honor 10 - COL-A10 on 8.1.0.150(C675) .. will get it future patches or updates once I update via this method ( i know the answer is mostly yes, but still trying to be sure)

    Hi In this Guide I am going to show a way to update Emui 8.x to Emui 9.x using Firmware Finder

    It can be used on locked and unlocked Bootloader.

    Data mostly wont be erased but will be erased in some cases where stock system is tampered earlier.

    It may or may not lock your Bootloader.

    For this you need to install Firmware Finder app ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.teammt.gmanrainy.huaweifirmwarefinder ) on your device , original thread for the app ( https://forum.xda-developers.com/tools/general/huawei-firmware-finder-team-mt-t3469146/ )
    Note 1:
    This method requires latest EMUI 8.X available for your device. If you are not on the latest update repeat the below steps to install latest EMUI 8.x for your device.

    Note 2: This process is safe to proceed if you have selected correct firmware for your device , If you try to flash wrong firmware and bricked your device I wont be responsible for it.


    Steps to Update :

    1. Install Firmware Finder App ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.teammt.gmanrainy.huaweifirmwarefinder)
    2. Select your Device in the App
    3. Check the list of available firmwares
    4. If you are not on the latest EMUI 8.x firmware then you need to install it
    5. Select the next update iteration for your device
    6. Check whether the update is approved your IMEI or not if check step 11 below
    7. If the update is approved Get an update through eRecovery (Note that for this method you have to change DNS in your Router)
    8. Click On Next and copy DNS address from the App
    9. Change DNS in the Router and reboot your Router (Check whether DNS is configured properly or not by clicking this URL http://query.hicloud.com/checkConnect.action if you get 404 then its not configured properly)
    10. Now click on the check availablitiy if not yet approved check next step
    11. There is a option for Register update in the screen now click on register update and click next here your IP will be registered for sending the update
    12. Now connect your device to charger and reboot into eRecovery by pressing Volume+ button
    13. Once its rebooted cleck on the option Download latest version and recovery
    14. On Next step Download and recovery
    15. It will search for WiFi and will list the available WiFi , select the WiFi which you used to register your IP in step 11
    16. It will proceed to download the select firmware once it done it will Reboot.

    Success!

    Well, I finally did it with the help of this and a few other threads.

    1. I did not have to change my dns, but I did add an entry for the update in my local host file as found in this thread:

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=78850439&postcount=1334

    I followed all directions in the link above.

    I uninstalled my Windows HiSuite and following the instructions above I downloaded the one they have linked, replaced all the files.

    Then for the FF or firmware finder, I followed the steps here:

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=78561688

    Finally, everything worked like a charm and I am now running some sweet pie goodness.

    See my success pic and you will see a bunch of the steps in action.

    Easy tricks

    The easiest way for honor play is to download a fake gps then change ur location to China and open HiCare -> update and you’ll see update available for you

    so hard to believe it doesn't work on all emui version's... do it on honor play,I believe that working on honor play...record video and upload... believe it doesn't work...okay?

    you don't have to borrow with honor 10 pictures... take from honor play...

    honor 10 does not run the same as honor play... maybe work on honor 10,i dont known, i not have honor 10, I know that not work on honor play... believe me, I didn't start today...

    Sent from my HUAWEI COR-L29 using XDA Labs

    Dude seriously you are out of your mind just stay away from this thread if its not helpful to you , I have atleast two success reports for COR-L29 and the comment you quoted says EMUi9.x is not yet approved for his/her device which is quite common and the workaround for it is step 10 and 11.

    I repeat again if its not working for you , you have mentioned it just thats enough and there is no need for spamming every thread.

    If you wish to contribute and not spam just send a bug report to firmware finder team they might solve the issue.
