after this "Software install failed!"
Device from the start runs straight away in to eRecovery. Nothing helps. I don't know what to do next... Nothing seems to working like it should :/
The error was "Brand new" Finger print it was not programed. I changed to used (from another phone). And now phone is starting normally and everything is working fine :)

Hey,
I have a VOG-L29 which isn't booting EMUI. Factory reset from recovery isn't helping and I don't know which excact model or version it is. Before I try to use dload with some version/model it would be nice to know if there is a way to get that information before the operation. Because of that Hisuite isn't working. My aim is to get a working EMUI 9 or 10 and all I can tell about the instlalled version so far is that when booting there isn't the 'powered by android' bottom text in the bootloader screen like i seen it in some videos.
Any tips or hints are appreciated.
Best regards

This site is unreliable. It's just a scam.
You don't get ota anymore because 10.1.0.150 is not right build for your device's regioncountry, or because you are with wrong cust and preload version for that region.
As your bootrom was updated previously to emui11, usb does not work anymore when downgraded.
Wait for emui11 dload OFFLINE package to be available and flash them with a Nimcard, or usbotg if it still works.

http://huawei-update.com - it's scam?!

I think I just have an incompatible version of the region or other problem. My P30 Pro VOG-L29 stopped at 10.1.0.126(C636E11R1P3patch01).
I am writing from europe. How to check what is wrong? Is the C636 compatible with the phone (as I understand this could be a problem)? Could the C636 not receive an update if the phone is in Europe? I checked *#*#2846579#*#* -> 3 -> 4 -> Country spcseas - is correct?
How does the phone recognize a region? From settings, sim card, GPS?


The phone was purchased with an incompatible serial number with the box. Will I assume the replaced motherboard?

Can anyone suggest what to do to update the phone to EMUI 11 and then get EMUI 12 OTG and future updates?

Hello,
I am looking for a suitable EMUI 10.0.0.* ROM for a dual sim VOG-L29, current build number 9.1.* (C431)

I tried L29C 10.0.0.168(C431E19R2P5) but I get: "Software install failed!
Incompatibility with current version. Please download the correct update package."

Is there any other ROM or is it possible to get rid or bypass the "Software install failed" message?

I'm writing this because I can't believe myself it worked.

My old P30 Pro is region C431 (EMUI 12), and I just wanted to see if I could turn it into a C432 to get rid of the local carrier customization. I knew chances were I would soft-brick it but I took the risk because I knew it could be recovered.
Goes without saying, I did soft-brick it. So in order to rescue it I downgraded using the VOGUE-L29C 10.1.0.179(C431E23R2P5)_Firmware_EMUI10.1.0_05017BHV firmware (dload folder). The file did its job but I got stuck in EMUI 10 as no available updates were to be found by the online upgrade system, and the USB connection was not working.

So, I gave the VOG-L29C 10.1.0.123(C431E19R2P5patch02)_Firmware_EMUI10.1.0_05016DYH a chance (you can easily find it online, including this website - just copy and paste it and google will do the rest). I downgraded my P30 Pro once again, and of course no USB connection. But system started finding upgrades.

It apparently stopped at 10.1.0.179 and I thought that would it be it. But much to my surprise, after 40 minutes or so (just be patient), system showed a new upgrade: 10.1.0.201. Of course I let it upgrade; now it's showing further upgrades and it's on its way to EMUI 12.
It was 11.0.0.138 first, then 11.0.0.174 came and USB connection was restored.

It worked for me, hopefully it will also work for all those who are stuck at 10.1.0.179 and can't upgrade to EMUI 12

No USB File Transfer after Firmware-Update

Hello all,

I have not been able to install the versions from this link (http://huawei-firmware.com/phone-list/huawei-p30-pro/vog-l29) either

I have updated my P30 pro to version VOGUE-L29C 10.1.0.179(C431E23R2P5) according to instructions posted here (dload). So far so good. Unfortunately, the smartphone is now no longer recognized by any PC via USB. Old backups from a USB stick can also not be used. It can only be charged via USB. I have already tried to check the USB port via the menu *#*#2846579#*#*. No preassignment is displayed. Setting any option has no effect.

I also can't reset the smartphone with any older version. I have tried several. The update reports an error when checking and restarts the smartphone. Recovery is also blocked so I can't perform a wipe.

Has anyone else observed this effect and possibly a solution or a tip for me? My main problem is that no file or photo transfer is possible via USB.

In the developer options, all settings for ADB via USB, USB file transfer and OEM unlock were enabled.

Thanks for your time and support.
Best regards from Germany.
Andreas
I guess you can use a NM memory unit (a 64 GB card will cost you approx 20€ from Aliexpress) - it'll allow you to copy your files from the internal storage to the card.
NM-USB adapters should not be so expensive

If you want to move from EMUI 10 to 12, please see the method I posted in my previous post. Maybe it'll work for you too

Thank you for sharing your positive experience ;)

    I have VOG-L09 dual sim CUST, but I think only VOG-L29 is dual sim,
    Version VOG-L09 supports just single sim
    Where?? I wrote this weeks ago and it was CLEARLY stated in the message!

    Hi fellows xda'ians,

    I've made this thread in order to have a clean and updated one with links for latest dload firmware, info, changelog & other guides. I will keep updating this OP with newest dload firmware ONLY for EMUI 10.1. To decompress ANY firmware file that has .EF extension, use EF File Extractor v7.4

    Latest firmware was added on 03.12.2020 for VOG-L29 C431 v10.1.0.179, with OCTOBER SP as changelog.

    USING dload FW in order to update your device WILL DO A FULL WIPE & ERASE YOUR INTERNAL MEMORY, SO DON'T FORGET TO BACKUP BEFORE using Huawei HiSuite! Also, I'm not responsible for bricked devices! READ BEFORE PROCEEDING & BE SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT dload firmware according to your needs!​

    Following this guide for VOG-L04 users you will find out how to flash on a carrier branded device using a different cust firmware, shared by @oremor305 and reconfirmed by @cre4per for working on a VOG-L04 C792 cust.

    If you need to revive
    a softbricked device (bootloader depending), follow post #463. This method is working also for devices with C900 cust.

    HOW TO flash dload FW:

    UPGRADE USING OTG ADAPTER or OTG CABLE + USB MEMORY STICK
    1. Extract dload folder from downloaded archive above (dload folder with all 3 zips inside) and copy to your memory stick / drive (formatted as exFat or NTFS) that will be used to upgrade
    2. BACKUP your stuffs if you haven't done yet
    3. Factory Reset your phone (optional) and POWER it OFF
    4. Insert your OTG + memory stick / drive with the right firmware on it (dload folder with all 3 zips inside)
    5. ON EMUI 10 enter eRecovery by pressing POWER+VOLUME UP and keep them pressed untill you see Huawei on screen. Release the POWER button and keep pressing VOLUME UP untill you are in eRecovery menu, then release button. When in menu, select Update mode, then select Memory card/OTG update mode and it should start the update.

    UPGRADE USING Huawei NM Card
    1. Extract dload folder from downloaded archive above (dload folder with all 3 zips inside) and copy to your Huawei NM Card
    2. BACKUP your stuffs if you haven't done yet
    3. Factory Reset your phone (optional) and POWER it OFF
    4. ON EMUI 10 enter eRecovery by pressing POWER+VOLUME UP and keep them pressed untill you see Huawei on screen. Release the POWER button and keep pressing VOLUME UP untill you are in eRecovery menu, then release button. When in menu, select Update mode, then select Memory card/OTG update mode and it should start the update.

    OR

    If you want to do it from sistem after you've made your backup and had an Factory Reset (optional), insert OTG + memory stick / drive OR copy dload folder with all 3 zips inside to your Huawei NM Card and dial this code on dialer *#*#2846579#*#* then select 4.Software Update then 1.Memory card Upgrade . If your inserted card / memory stick or USB drive or Huawei NM Card it's recognised and has the right files, your phone will restart & start flashing the firmware. At the end after succesfully flashed firmware, you can remove the OTG (if you used one).

    How to check for update using eRecovery on EMUI 10 / 10.1 :

    It doesn't require a cable plugged in and using this method in order to update WON'T wipe your phone data, it's acting like an normal OTA. In order to acces eRecovery, Power OFF your device or Restart it. Press then simultaneously POWER+VOLUME UP and keep them pressed untill you see Huawei on screen. Release the POWER button and keep pressing VOLUME UP untill you are in eRecovery menu, then release button. When in menu, select Update mode, then select eRecovery mode then Update and recover system then Download update and recover. Connect it to Wi-Fi and it should start the update. If it's still the version you're atm, you can hit Cancel and then Restart. If it's a newer version than the one installed, let it download and update. At the end, it will restart to system.

    Clean and succesfully flashings, guys & keep in mind that you can donate me in order to maintain this thread alive or if my firmwares helped you or you just appreciate my work @xda :highfive:

    IF you want to remove ads and you have no root or don't wan't to block your VPN or use Blokada, you can use my trick, it works on both WI-FI and mobile networks, as good as Adaway is doing :
    Just set: Settings > Wi-Fi & Internet > Private DNS > dns.adguard.com OR dot-de.blahdns.com then press Save & enjoy ad free browsing without any additional app. These are secure DNS servers that have integrated ad blocking. Adguard is a Russian company, blahdns is a small hobby project with a good history.

    Extra step for Chrome users:
    - Open Chrome, type in chrome://flags, search for async DNS resolver (#enable-async-dns) and choose disabled in the drop down menu, otherwise Chrome could use a built in dns resolver which does not block ads.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In order to remove Huawei bloatware (and get a better battery lifetime) without root access and using ADB & USB Debugging, please check my thread from the link bellow:

    Remove Huawei Bloatware Without Root Access - using ADB & USB Debugging
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As a comprehensive battery optimization mini guide to achieve the best possible SOT's on Huawei phones go to Settings/Battery/App launch and disable the app or give permission to the app you need to run in background (ex. NOT working in background Netflix is set to Managed manually with NO Auto-launch, NO Secondary launch and NO Run in background; WORKING AUTO - OUTLOOK - Manage automatically). Next you can customize notifications separately for any customisable app in own settings.

    HOW TO REVIVE softbricked & flash for C900 CUST + demo devices (bootloader depending)

    In order to succeed, you will need to do as i wrote bellow! You can flash 3 times by replacing second and third time the dload folder from USB device or you can use 3 exFAT formatted USB devices, as you wish. Before proceeding, make sure that you have 3 dload folder with ONLY 3 zips inside (the ones extracted from my firmware, v186 for VOG-L29 C431 or VOG-L09 C431, depending on device).

    FIRST folder to be used NEEDS NO MODIFICATIONS AT ALL, just do step 1 from bellow!
    1. FIRST TIME FLASH the dload folder ORIGINAL, just as is from the extracted firmware - dload folder with all 3 zips files inside as following:
    update_sd_base.zip (4207731 KB)
    update_sd_cust_VOG-L29_hw_eea.zip (37 KB)
    update_sd_preload_VOG-L29_hw_eea_R2.zip (206751 KB)
    It will end up succesfully, but with softbrick.

    SECOND dload folder do as step 2 bellow then flash it (copy the dload folder and replace the one used on step 1 if you are using the same USB device)
    2. SECOND TIME RENAME update_sd_preload.zip TO update_sd_base.zip AND ORIGINAL update_sd_base.zip TO update_sd_preload.zip, resulting:
    update_sd_base.zip (206751 KB)
    update_sd_cust_VOG-L29_hw_eea.zip (37 KB)
    update_sd_preload_VOG-L29_hw_eea_R2.zip (4207731 KB)
    It will flash faster with flash successfully, still softbrick.

    THIRD dload folder do as step 3 bellow then flash it (copy the dload folder and replace the one used on step 2 if you are using the same USB device)
    3. THIRD TIME RENAME update_sd_cust_VOG-L29_hw_eea.zip TO update_sd_base.zip AND ORIGINAL update_sd_base.zip TO update_sd_cust_VOG-L29_hw_eea.zip, resulting:
    update_sd_base.zip (37 KB)
    update_sd_cust_VOG-L29_hw_eea.zip (4207731 KB)
    update_sd_preload_VOG-L29_hw_eea_R2.zip (206751 KB)
    Flashing will be instantaneous and will reboot and revive your device from softbrick.

    Goodluck flashing and let me know if it worked :confused:
