The official Huawei website no longer provides the bootloader unlock codes for your devices !!! For several weeks the official website of Huawei to request the code (unique for each terminal) returns an error message that says the ID register with Huawei to Cloud and wait 14 days, but who says he expected to receive this error message and also the Subscribing to this service Chinese I find it impossible from Italy. I tried to contact all the way Huawei but I do not want to provide the code, they are also overwhelmed by demands on their official forum but do not answer to anyone. For those who buy one today Huawei (including Honor 7 as I did) you can forget the root, recovery model and whatever else!

i understand that you are frustrated, but i couldn't believe your statement.
yes, it is true that to get this code will be a little bit difficult. But from time to time you can read about successfully unlocking the boot block.

i am sure, that HUAWEI would remove the unlock button from there web side if they want to discontinue this offer!:cool:

i tried the English side in the end of 2015 and was not able to get my code there!
I tied the Chinese side AND use model type Y300-0000 to get my code and it works!
Get my device ID with a special keygen (HUAWEI product ID gen)! The at my device shown ID code also did not work! But attention, i have get a virus notification from my antivirus app using this code gen!!!
At a German forum some users tried to use the model type "PLK-TL01H" and it works too.

The problem is, that there are so many ways "to do" described, and nothing will be 100% successful guaranteed!
With FB account or without; Chinese side or English side; ori. ID or Codegen ID; per mail; per special unlock side and so on and so on. Many tries to get the code!

Huawei said that:
Each account can get unlock code to bootloader only two times!

So just create another account and that all.

I did it yesterday... :)

you should login into the huawei account using your phone browser and not at your pc.
Hi,
I have faced the same issue with Huawei site. I did two thing.
Post a support request on their site, called the local hot line here in France.
Both first answered to follow the procedure on the site and/or mail (in English) to there corporate.
Since the site was not responding (server a lays busy), I sent them an an Official letter (both in French and English) stressing the point that both French an European laws require that manufacturer provide this unlocking code with no discussion. The same day I got an email from the hot line asking for EMEI and product ID.
In return they sent me the unlocking code.
I got a different answer from the site support. Telling me again to try on the site.
Furthermore both tried to tell me that unlocking the boot loader will void the warranty. This information is also incorrect according to European laws. What might void the warranty is modification to the operating system. The bootloader by essence is there to load the operating system furthermore for all European country the warning is in English, so it's only valid for UK and Ireland.

Here is the copy of my mail. feel free to use it.
This time I was successful to get the answer through the French hot line., but my mail in English to [email protected] got the same answer "go to the site".
Usually when I get upset by those "crappy" answers from phone manufacturer or operator support I write directly to the C.E.O of the company, often it helps




I have bought last week a honor 7 device through my phone operator in France.

Has mandated by French and European laws, Phone manufacturer are required to provide upon request the bootloader unlocking code to their customer.

After several attempts on your site, I have called the hot line.
They send me a message with instructions, not different from those I had followed by myself.
They also urged me to email you if unsuccessful. In English.

I have open an account at email xxxxxxxxxx
I have activate the account
I have tried to get to the unlock tab under download.

I keep getting the following message from your server.
Your server is not responding.

Could you please let me know how to get the code.

P.S.
I am a 50th are veteran of the computer industry, and I know what a bootloader is.

i have found another link: http://androidmtk.com/unlock-bootloader-of-huawei-honor-7
there you will find a description from nov.2015 which described the procedure to get the unlock code.
this is the same that i have done in 11. 2015 and it has worked for me.
be careful, my virus killer has found a unknown virus in the HuaweiProductGen.exe!
I think it is more save to use this tool with Linux/Wine (win-emulator)!:cool:

    I got the unlock code without any problem in the webpage: https://emui.huawei.com/en/plugin.php?id=unlock&mod=detail

    I just login in with my facebook account, fill in the fields and I got it inmediately.
    I do it with my notebook, not the phone (I haven't try it with the phone)
