Hello. I have a Huawei P9 EVA DL00, on it EMUI 8.0.0 / Android 8.0.0. Is it possible to port the EMUI 9 firmware from Huawei P10 / Honor 9 or another device to our P9 on it. We have Kirin 955, and on the Huawei P10 / Honor 9 Kirin 960. Who can port?

P9 Eva l09 android 6.0

Hi everyone!
We are on 2019 lol and my eva-l09 didnt update any More, im stucked at android 6.0.

Any ideas? Im worried if I have to mannualy updated it because i have a bad experience with that.
I had before a gx8, ive mannualy updated the stock rom and like Many others i had no signal, so i did a flash to roll back and my fingerprint sensor stopped working (i couldnt Solve that)

Thanks!

I don't know have you really been originally on that cust c451, or you rebranded to c451 as part of going back to stock / rolling back to MM

Anyway, c451 is a dead end, check on FirmwarFinder or at:
https://pro-teammt.ru/firmware-database/?firmware_model=EVA-L09c451
you will see that EMUI 4.1, b131/b132 are the last ever firmwares for c451

You need to rebrand to some 'proper' cust like c432 (European), c636, or so, to be able to obtain OTA updates up to EMUI 5, like it was described here:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=72153575&postcount=2

Rebranding to c432 is crucial. If updating to b182 as described there will fail, you should be able to reinstall c432 b182 (or newer c432) by eRecovery, or by flashing service restore c432b182 (but there are no service restores for c451 and no Nougat firmwares for c451)

Thanks for the reply,

No, ive been originally on c451. I dindt change anything on this device. I bought it at amazon almost 3 years ago, and apparently it was a "telstra" phone, i think from Australia, altought in amazon it said unlocked. Now im using Movistar network in Argentina.
Ok then, the question is, is there any way to know that after rebranding to c432 or another cust my device will work properly? i mean phone signal (the most important thing), camera, fingerprint sensor, etc.

Hardware is always the same, rebranding puts the other cust.
And with cust c432 you should receive OTA updates up to b504/b505

If not, for some reason (then it is possible to force DLOAD or HWOTA updates

Btw, responding you now from L09c432 rebranded to AL10c00 (Chinese), with Oreo b540 (Oreo was released for P9 only in China) and with some adaptations (Chinese firmwares are specific), everything works ok.
If you search throughout XDA, you will find many users (for all kinds of Huawei models) rebrand here and there, usually to c432 or c636 since they obtain faster and more updates (except for Chinese AL10, AL00, DL10 and alike that get first and farthest OTA updates, but Chinese firmwares require adaptations to become useful worldwide: bloatware, missing GApps, missing intl languages and configurations for intl carriers, and so)

Btw, didn't you previously say that you returned to stock (from custom ROM?) - in that case you must have Bootloader code (for rebranding you need to start with the unlocked Bootloader - have also OEM/FRP unlocked)

Edit: Btw, this is a wrong thread for discussing the update of stock MM firmware to Nougat
