Guys, I was in process of upgrading the phone, and my sister in law accidentally held power button while she was looking at the phone.

The phone now appears to be bricked, i have no IMIE & Wi-Fi can't be turned on.

The phone is not rooted and bootloader is locked.

The phone turns off after few seconds once turned on.

I added MicroSD with full update (downloaded) from Huawei Website and i put the dload folder in MicroSD, i can't install it because there is no install from local folder.

If i do Vol UP + Down and Power, it forces to load recovery, but i am assuming it uses dload folder from internal memory and it starts to verify, then suddenly installing and stall at 5% and reboots after good 3 or 4 mins.

Can someone help? or should i just return to the store.

Thanks in advance

Try flashing again..

Download the official firmware for your model and extract
After that, copy the dload folder to your sd card

Power off your phone
Then hold all the 3 buttons at a time, and leave All the three as soon as you see honor logo..

Now your phone will begin update,
This time, wait until it finishes and it will be solved..
