VNS-L31C432B161 - OTA
http://update.hicloud.com:8180/TDS/data/files/p3/s15/G1164/g104/v66007/f1/full/update.zip

Hi,
I have a question. Once you install the update manuals, I will have already always install everything by hand or I'll go and ota update? thanks

You can choose to download the full version (1.7 GB) or the last OTA (in this case it's 373 MB), updating won't factory reset your phone.

I would like to know same question too as mine is C440 which is EE UK

The last available firmware for VNS-L31C440 is the B160 published almost a month ago.

How do I install it? I tried it with the 300mb~ file and flashed thorugh TWRP.

Since 6 months I couldn't update any of the updates through dload folder because if I put it on the sdcard/dload it wouldn't update with stock recovery.
And the internal storage NEVER shows up at my computer (win10) so I can't really update from there.
I already got myself in a stressful bootloop because of it but I made it back again to L31C432B151...
I had BL unlocked, root and xposed installed. Dunno if it has to do something with it,

As I've seen in Huawei Firmware Finder, there are three different files for L31C432B161:
one with 1,7gb guess thats full
one with ~500mb
one with ~300mb I took this one and failed

Which one should I choose?
probably this was the problem, I took the wrong file?

Thanks in advance

EDIT:
Been trying it for hours now. I get a blackscreen/bootloop after I found a way to copy the update.app to dload. Won't work for me. Also my device is now dead.

Thank you for this, just to clarify if I chose to flash C432 over C440 it would break the Area code it belongs to?

I think he means if he or I chose to flash C432 over our current phone versions i.e C440 in my case, would this break the branding on it and make it C900 and stop any future OTA's as I keep seeing articles about de branding etc

two problems, i can't open google play , i can't add a google account.
Please a little help
Well i know what the problem is, but when i fix it, it breaks the breaks the speaker.
After you upgrade to B161, if you check the build number is shows vns-l31c900b161. This should be C432B161, to fix this if you need to flash again using the stock recovery with the zip in the dload folder. Once you reflash again it changes the oeminfo to C431 and fixes this fixes the google account issue but breaks the speaker. Haven't a clue how to fix this, so its back to the VNS-L31C432B151 build for me

In light of this is there a C440B150 ROM?
