Mods:

Change the Icon Size:


Use Rootexplorer or Es File Manager and go to:

cust/all/cn/prop
Open the Local.prop with an Texteditor
Search the Line:
######2.BASEAPP TEAM BEGIN
under this Line write:
ro.config.app_big_icon_size=136 (or what you want the size of the icons,136 is very small,look the Pic in Attachment)

This must look like this now
######2.BASEAPP TEAM BEGIN
ro.config.app_big_icon_size=136

Save und look the right Permission torw-r--r--
and reboot

Remove in Music and Videoplayer the China Services:

same here,go in

cust/all/cn/prop
Open the Local.prop with an Texteditor

Search the Line:
######2.BASEAPP TEAM BEGIN
under this Line write:
cofig.onlinevideo.enabled=false
ro.cofig.onlinemusic.enabled=false

Save und look the right Permission torw-r--r--
and reboot

Now you have Video and Music Player without the China Online Service.
Look the Pic´s in Attachment


Or Download my local.prop with this 3 Mods ,unpack with win zip and copy the "local.prop" in cust/all/cn/prop with an File Explorer with root Support,overwrite your local.prop,Save und look the right Permission torw-r--r--
and reboot
Backup your local.prop on Micro SD Card before!

In Twrp flash Image there are only 2 options to choose from
Boot or Recovery
For Boot.img use:Boot
For Recovery Twrp or Stock Recovery use:Recovery
Yes wipe Data and after 10 sec wiping Press so long the Power Button to Reboot the Device,If you see the black background with oranges text,3 options are available.
You take Press for 3 sec Volume up to reboot in eRecovery.
In eRecovery is then Format Data Partition.Formate Data Partition and Shut Down the Phone
Reboot into Twrp go to Wipe,Wipe Data--Yes,now it works in Twrp
Go Back to Advanced Wipe and wipe Dalvik,Cache,Data and System.
Do not Reboot!
Flash supersu
Flash Update_data_all_cn.zip
Flash Update.zip
Flash Supersu again
Reboot-wait for 5 Min
Stuck on Huaweilogo Factory Reset and the Phone Booting.

I don't know if I understand correctly (I'm new to this stuff) but I got back to Emui 4.1.

I installed the Rom without root successfully but messed up the instructions to root and got stuck in some sort of bootloop.
Then Emui reinstalled a factory fresh B027 over wifi and upgraded to B029.

I think this happened with charge/data cable plugged into the PC and pressing the volume up button on reboot.

Apologies if that is not what you meant but it seems to be difficult to brick the phone ;)

Great, I don't know this, never break wipe before. Puzzle is almost settled. I will probably try afternoon.
Have you solved viber WhatsApp notification?
And most problem: brightness drop in browser?
Thanks x 10000000.

I'm having problems copying Apps on System/App folder. When I try copying the APK file, it says there is not enough space. I even tried in TWRP and it is says it can't copy it. I even tried mounting the system folder. Any ideas?

using, it is super fast but I have some problems:
-nova launcher unread notifications counter can not be switch on. It is switched on, but go off immediately
UPD.: solved by give nova and tesla unread every possible rights in phoneManager and apps..
-it seems to me that non huawei app (google, chrome, any...) have some delay on opening, like OS check them somehow?
- browser in middle light conditions / system reduce brightness in browser and dialer more then any other app and more then is ok for use...
https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho....php?t=3559949
If somebody not see this: on middle bright conditions open chrome, brightness drop. Tap navigation key recent apps, chrome is in foreground it is clear seen that brightnes rise. tap again chrome, brightness drop whet it on stays active... ugly. it was same in emui 4.1 but as solving by batery mode performance option use instead balanced
probably they have not made battery profiles for beta version and nothing can be done...
UPD.: solved by force stop, dissable boot, freeze Power Genius (com.Huawei.powergenie) in sd maid.
maybe imonitor (com.huawei.imonitor) is also battery app, if somebody knows??

I just got this phone about 8 days ago, and I have a few questions if anyone can answer, I already had the EMUI 5.0 installed on my phone (a reset of the phone triggered a download after signing up with the Huawei ID).

1) I noticed that after I installed the decrypted boot image some of the features disappeared, like the themes, and the changing of the pictures on the lock screen, and the icons seems to be all over the place.
2) I noticed some of the settings are missing, like before rooting and unlocking there was an option to save power by making the screen dark, now it seems that option is gone.
3) If after rooting could you re-lock the bootloader and still keep root?

Also lastly, does anyone here have the english version of HiVoice (HwVAssistant.apk) thats not deodexed? I wanted to try this out but the only version I see is the deodexed and I havent tried yet but I think it still wont work on a rooted phone since the rom isnt deodexed. The reason I am asking is my car is picking it up as Siri (I know its not) but if it works like siri it would be golden.

    A little confused... So if on custom twrp unlock bootloader rooted emui 5 beta, what is your suggestion to revert to stock 4.1 emui with all locked, later not problems to unlock?
    Thanks

    Sent from my EDI-AL10 using XDA-Developers Legacy app

    My bootloader is currently unlocked and with stock. What I did was I left the bootloader unlocked, in Twrp I attempted to install the stock rom I made up as I said, it failed, but it somehow put the right files in place to WLan download the correct stock rom to install in recovery.

    So in short: Custom Rom to Stock:

    1) Leave bootloader unlocked
    2) Go into Twrp
    3) Install, Choose update.b27.zip (If attempting from Twrp)
    4) Install will fail.
    5) Hold Vol+ and power button to get into WLan recovery
    6) Connect to WLan
    7) Rom should download and install
    8) UInlocked bootloader and stock in place, No Root. (If rooted wanted, try Kingroot, did not try myself yet)

    Or

    1) Try putting your updates on the phone itself.
    2) in the root location of the phone create a New folder called: HwOUC
    3) Then create a folder called 76749 (think this is the code from Huawei for Nougat 7.0 or its just a random number)
    4) then put the update.zip and the update_data_full_all_cn.zip into this folder
    5) and then go to settings/updater and see if the phone picks up the update, if not
    6) then I would try holding the vol+ and the power button and see if the EMUI recovery will automatically pick it up and install.


    Wish Granted. Rom Link

    REQUEST anyone who has the English version of HiVoice (Not De-Odex) please share, I am trying to replace the chinese version with the English verison
    2
    So in short: Custom Rom to Stock:

    1) Leave bootloader unlocked
    2) Go into Twrp
    3) Install, Choose update.b27.zip (If attempting from Twrp)
    4) Install will fail.
    5) Hold Vol+ and power button to get into WLan recovery
    6) Connect to WLan
    7) Rom should download and install
    8) UInlocked bootloader and stock in place, No Root. (If rooted wanted, try Kingroot, did not try myself yet)

    In my case I had a backup rom B027 downloaded from Huawei website, plus I had the Nougat 7.0 zip files from here. What I did was take the update.app out of the B027 zip file and replace the Nougat 7.0 update.app with mine without breaking it being signed. Then I tried to "install from zip" which failed, so I rebooted holding the volume+ and the power button and got to download and recovery, but it was in all chinese, and decided to try downloading the rom by WLan, and this time it worked it downloaded and installed the 6.0 EMUI 4.1 rom stock, and now the phone downloaded the Nougat 7.0 EMUI 5.0 onto the phone but I havent updated it yet, because I am trying to find where the download was saved so I could pull it off the phone for further testing to restore.

    Bootloader still unlocked currently, and no root as of now, going to do some experiments. If anyone wishes to try I can upload my Zipped rom to try, nothing special about the package, but I think the main difference that it worked downloading the rom by Wlan this time is because of the chinese recovery being installed, and I think its due to the meta-info and the file "full_mainpkg.tag". thats the only thing different

    All you do is put a older rom in the dload folder of the sd card and force the update on startup.
    Make sure it's a update.app file.

    I tried that for three days in all different ways, could not get it to work, screenshots above support my statement.

    Okay I found the location that the Nougat 7.0 update was downloaded to. Try putting your updates on the phone itself. in the root location of the phone create a New folder called: HwOUC Then create a folder called 76749 (think this is the code from Huawei for Nougat 7.0 or its just a random number) then put the update.zip and the update_data_full_all_cn.zip into this folder and then go to settings/updater and see if the phone picks up the update, if not then I would try holding the vol+ and the power button and seee if the EMUI recovery will automatically pick it up and install.

    Currently my phone is updating to Nougat 7.0 EMUI 5.0 with the bootloader unlocked.
