Hello! I tried to root my Honor 6x (BLN-L21, EMUI 5.0) following the instructions there:

cyberkey.in/how-to-root-honor-6x-100-working/

The bootloader was successfully unlocked.

But when I tried to flash TWRP the process failed and now my phone is stuck on boot :

"Your device has been unlocked and can't be trusted [...] Your device is booting now."

I can get access to recovery and fastboot. I wiped the cache and tried a factory reset but nothing changed, my system won't start and I don't know what to do.

Please help!

I think that I flashed the wrong files in "boot" and "recovery". Please tell me which files I should flash there.

I used the commands:
.\fastboot flash boot twrp.img
.\fastboot flash recovery twrp.img

The guide from "cyberkey.in/how-to-root-honor-6x-100-working/" is simply wrong when it comes to flashing the twrp recovery. If you really followed this guide completely then you flashed the recovery to the boot partition.

Use "fastboot flash recovery twrp.img" to flash the recovery.

You will still have to flash the boot image to your boot partition then (fastboot flash boot boot.img).

Ok so basically I need to flash the boot image. However I don't know where to find the stock boot image. I downloaded the so-called "full version" of the stock firmware that I found here: boycracked.com/2017/07/20/official-huawei-honor-6x-bln-l21-berlin-l21-stock-rom-firmware/
However there was no boot.img file inside.

If you could direct me to the proper stock boot.img or send me one, that would greatly help. I had EMUI 5.0 with Nougat 7.0 I believe, phone version BLN-L21.

Thanks. I successfully updated boot.img and and recovery.img, but system won't load, so I might have imported from the wrong STOCK version.

I tried to reinstall a stock ROM using:

fastboot flash system system.img

But I got this error message:

target reported max download size of 471859200 bytes
sending sparse 'system' (444686 KB)...
OKAY [ 12.901s]
writing 'system'...
FAILED (remote: sparse flash write failure)
finished. total time: 12.929s

Then I tried to erase the system file with "erase system" and got this error:

erasing 'system'...
FAILED (remote: Command not allowed)
finished. total time: 0.013s

I guess that the only option now is to install the files on an external SD card?

I recommend you to download firmware files only from the official honor website or by using the huawei firmware finder(https://forum.xda-developers.com/tools/general/huawei-firmware-finder-team-mt-t3469146)

In this case try to use huawei firmware finder to get the right stock version for your phone. Download these two files: e.g. update.zip & update_full_BLN-L21_hw_eu.zip.
Export the following image files: recovery, system, boot and cust.

The try to flash them:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot flash cust cust.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

If flashing a partition via fastboot fails then it is usually because it's the wrong image or just not made for your phone.

if all of this fails, i suggest that you instead do what I did and boot into recovery, and flash LineageOS from the ROMs discussion in the Honor6X forums.

Hope this helps, superwhiskers

Thank you guys, you saved my phone! I eventually managed to flash the files from Nougat update for European Honor 6X BLN-L21C432B360 that I found there: stechguide.com/honor-6x-b360-nougat-update/

Now the phone is working fine.

    did you solve your issue.....I have same problem now
    Hello, could you be more specific about your problem? I'll be able to help you.

    Brief Explanation:

    From the screen on which you're stuck, press and hold power button for about 10 seconds to forcibly restart your device. when you see the same screen again, immediately press and hold volume up button(for about 3 seconds) to boot to eRecovery.

    > Choose shut down option on eRecovery. press and hold vol down button and insert the charging cable to boot to fastboot.

    > Press and hold power and volume up button to boot to recovery. (You could do this even from fastboot screen and the screen you're stuck at).
