Remove FRP lock with fastboot?

Hi all,
As a result of some attempts to restore stock rom for KIWI-UL00. I ended up in a pretty bad state :(:

1. The phone reboots perpetually.

2. Putting a 64gb sd card with stock rom gets the recovery to 5% and then phone gets into the reboots cycle. I actually do not know if the dload/UPDATE.APP is being picked up or the wrong boot flashed in is kicking in.

3. The phone is unlocked, but as a result of the flashing I got FRP lock??? Here is what I see in fastboot mode on the phone screen:
PHONE is Unlocked
FRP Lock


4. Any attempt to flash in a new BOOT, SYSTEM or RECOVERY with fastboot ends up with error:
./fastboot flash recovery ~/Downloads/split_updata.pl/kiw_ul00_B239_Unicom/RECOVERY.img
target reported max download size of 266338304 bytes
sending 'recovery' (55968 KB)...
OKAY [ 1.768s]
writing 'recovery'...
ERROR: usb_read failed with status e00002e8
FAILED (status read failed (Undefined error: 0))

finished. total time: 1.769s


My thinking is that FRP lock is causing denying fastboot, but have no idea how to remove it. Without being able to flash in the correct stock recovery, I don't think I will be able to install the stock rom ever.

There are a lot of stuff written about FRP lock out there, but they assume working phone. In my case, I only have access to fastboot, not even adb!

Any ideas appreciated,
Thanks.

But u still can get it into fastboot right? Isnt it possible to use adb then to root it and put twrp on it and after that put custom firmware on it to get it booted up properly again. And after that installing a stock image again?

fastboot has very limited capabilities (I guess because of the FRP lock?) Some commands work, like this:
./fastboot oem get-bootinfo
...
(bootloader) *******************************************

(bootloader) Bootloader Lock State: UNLOCKED

(bootloader) Root State: ROOT

(bootloader) Bootloader WidevineKey: WidevineKey_VALID
(bootloader) System State: Bootloader in UNLOCKED state
(bootloader) Bootloader Version: 001.001.000

(bootloader) *******************************************

OKAY [ 0.011s]
finished. total time: 0.011s

but other like erase or flash fail with the same error.

Do you know how to use ADB when the device is in fastboot mode? I currently get this:
./adb devices
List of devices attached


My thinking is that in order for DB to work the device need to be put in recovery mode, something I cannot achieve.

The only other mode i can put the phone in is by holding the UP and POWER it gets into something that has "eRecovery", but the rest is all in Chinese . There are 3 menus you can select with the volume and power (no screen touch). The first one leads to wifi discovery and but nothing after that. The other two top level menus lead to restart - again they are in Chinese, not sure what they do.

Isnt eRcovery from EMUI itself to save bricked phones? Like booting in new software or something? Maybe there are some video's about it on youtube???

I had some sort of the same issue but never had problems with frp lock before, i actually used a video from xda to get my honor 5x working again. I'll look for the link so you can see if the same steps work for you!

I saw the video, thanks. However, as you noticed in the video, not only phones boot ok, but when in fastboot mode, his phone reads:
Phone Unlocked
FRP Unlocked


When FRP is unlocked you can do all sorts of things with fastboot. I am not that lucky :crying:

relax buddy, try dload method with any other version of stock firmware,

and if it doesnt help,
first find a rollback update.app package for your particular variant, first flash it
then , go back to lollipop firmware with the same dload method,.
you should be booted to lollipop firmware,
than, go on to developer options and enable oem unlock option

start from there..

The problem is that the "dload/update.app on sdcard" method only works if the phone has stock recovery and I blew that one off.
In order to flash in the stock recovery, i need the FRP lock removed, otherwise fastboot gives me the above errors . See my problem?

the eRecovery seems more hopeful. But is all in Chinese. I got to the first step where it finds my wireless network. I put the password for the WIFI
and it starts doing omething, but fails with big red exclamation mark and tones of thing written in chinese...

I think I flashed in the wrong HUAWEI recovery image - I used the latest stock rom for KIWI-L24, but my phone is KIWI-UL00.
I would love to be able to put the right one in, but the FRP Lock issue is preventing me. I don't understand how can the phone be unlocked but have a FRP lock??? See the FASTBOOT commands I used in earlier in this thread.

FRP Lock occurs when the phone has a firmware mismatch and or oem unlocking is not on in developer options

This part of your post makes it sound like at least one part of recovery is still functioning. (I think there are 2 recoveries on the 5x, but I don't know the details).

I also had the "stuck at 5%" problem when trying to use the "dload" method. Here was my experience:

1) Using 64gb SD card (Class 10 or something fancy)
I was never able to do a stock recovery. Despite many tries after reformatting the card, recovery process always terminated at approximately 5% ending in a reboot without applying the update (which in your case would probably be a bootloop since the existing system is bad).

2) Using 8gb SD card (An old card, class 2)
This worked the first time. I was literally about ready to throw this phone away and send an angry message to Honor, and only tried this out of desperation. I've used it multiple times since, and dload recovery always works with this card.

My conclusion was that this phone cannot seem to read all SD cards properly. I'm not sure if the problem is capacity (over 32gb??), speed class, or brand. Try another card and it may save you. To be safe, it's probably best to be a smaller size, lower speed class card.

I am having the same problem (boot = unlocked, frp = lock) and here's what I get from those commands:

-----------------------
D:\_TEMP\Portables\ADB Tools>fastboot oem frp-unlock
...
FAILED (remote: oem_frp_check_password failed! Error = -1)
finished. total time: 0.013s
-----------------------

Whatever the FRP-Check Password is, I don't have it. I tried the OEM unlocker Code as well as the (former) google password (ok, just a stupid try).

    Have you tried booting up TWRP from download mode and see if that works?
