I have not tried this yet but tempted. Anyone who tried please let us know if its working for you

For this you need to install Firmware Finder app ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...firmwarefinder ) on your device , original thread for the app ( https://forum.xda-developers.com/too...m-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.

Tried to do this but unfortunately i don't have access to my router's DNS. Tried to do it with a wifi hotspot through my laptop and for some reason it kept registering the DNS ip address as the ipv4 address that the router was giving to my laptop. Tried to change it manually but no luck at all, the phone still sees as dns gateway the ip address from my laptop given by the router. Any suggestions ?
