Oh, and just to be clear - you are saying that I do not need a BOOT.img? If that is the case, why some UPDATE.app contain it and some don't?

What is the fastboot command to flash KERNEL.img?

`fastboot flash kernel KERNEL.img`

or

`fastboot flash boot KERNEL.img`
take a look at the Pic

So it worked for me but with different method.
As I said battery was depleted. Multi tool said 0 mv.
But was able to boot to fastboot with pc cable.
So I flashed the 3 files and went with 3 buttons option.
While the update didnt work, this gave my phone the time to charge enough so, in another effort with no cable but a 40W charger attached 3 buttons failed again but during this time my phone charged to 100%.
Then it was easy tried a stock rom and now my phone is as good as new.
Many thanks to speedson for providing the files.
I even tried the batch file to recharge your phone with a restart loop but that even didnt work.
Almost 3 months searching was kinda sure that the phone died. Although this forum has everything it was hard but people dont forget search constantly.
Cheers~~!

    Here these 2 zip´s waiting for your download. Keep in mind...an unlocked bootloader is needet^^


    HWOTA-WAS-Eng is the tool
    HWOTA are the 3 parts of the Firmware

    unzip the tool ( HWOTA8_WAS is what we want ) and unzip the 3 parts of firmware
    copy and paste the 3 parts of firmware into the HWOTA8_WAS / update folder

    then connect the Phone ( fastboot mode ) to the PC
    start the process by execute the update_eng.bat

    when asked whether it should be repacked or already is .... it is already repacked :)
    when asked for Source...choose Script

    now the !!!!what would you do!!! choose 2 for !!!!!!change location!!!!! that you go away from the C02 European-Vodafone Brandt straight to the one you want WAS-LX1AC432

    follow the prcess to the End :)

    hope it help you by unbrick/restore your Phone...good luck bro

    Hello ,

    mee too I had this issue so what I did maybe you need to be patient . you will push dload ( the idea is to try every firmware even if not compatible with your phone result just worked your phone )
    1 - if I undertand well you are using a wrong recovery.img ( same issue happed with me) I use a lot of and what is compatible for me is twrp_p10_lite_0.4.img - fixed mount issues ( LINK ) you can try all of them if this one does not open twrp well but I guess that will help you .
    2 - if you could open the TWRP make a full wip everything . delete all systems data .... everything .
    3 - here you need to be patient please : donwload all huawei dual SIM and try one by one download this FIRMWARE
    4 - put the file exactly as this HERE @Thanks to Alexxx1
    5 - if we suppose after many tries you have the chance to get phone worked and you will see that the BUILD NUMBER is like that 8.0.0.046 (xyz)
    6 - connect your phone using HI SUITE then update from HI SUITE . you will see that you are in the last version of EMUI and try another version . click on it . you will see the exact Firmware of your device but android 7 not problem you can get latest update after easily .as always .

    try this and I hop that I helped you .

    wait...there is some confusion here i think hahaha
    yes! dload method DOESN'T WORK so i tried your method.
    i follow the guide and when i use "update_eng.bat" it flashes the twrp recovery and then it asks to reboot to recovery but it doesn't work!
    Hi...
    ok guys.....dont try anything other...keep on being at the HWOTA ok sweethearts. The HWOTA progress is starting and flashing the TWRP recovery...then it ask to reboot to recovery but nothing happens right? The Answer is very simple.

    There doesnt exist a fastboot command to directly reboot from fastboot to recovery like

    fastboot reboot-recovery (this command would be nice but its not existing)

    so what is to do for you after TWRP was flashed successfully...the script is waiting for the boot into recovery. you need to do it manually by unplug the usb cable from the Phone and then press pwr button for so long that the screen turns into black-shut off the phone you know.
    even the screen is tunred into black (the phone is shut-off) instantly press and hold Vol-up key for so long until you see the Huawei Logo...Pwr-Key not needet cause Phone is power-up by it selfe.
    you should now enter recovery-mode....now reconnect the usb cable and in the HWOTA script press enter and follow the instructions in the blue screen script and dont forget we want to change the Region. That you leave the C02 Vodafone branding firmware to c432 European no branding.

    for the latest step the script ask you to relock the bootloader or let him unlocked...so let him unlocked if you not have a unlock-code and if you want to flash a custom rom later.

    Hi...

    8.0.0.046(xyz) is a bug mode that means it is a wrong boot image in the System with a security patch from 2018 if i remeber correctly. The HiSuit could not help for his Problem cause he had a wrong brandet firmware flashed. btw HiSiute also doesnt help by anything that you try to fix...you Device is not supportet is the standart answer from HiSuite...its a bullshit tool like every other bullshit tool from other Customers like Samsung Sony bla blub.

    So let us go the HWOTA way to really fix his issue and to get his Device working like it should :) I know that will work pretty well.
