    Plz i have gr5 kii l21 and i went to know if it's the same with honor 5x kiw l21

    Thanks a lot

    I'm 99% sure this is the same device. Differences are mainly artificial due to the market (maybe due to baseband, but I don't really think so), so they at Huawei/honor created a specific firmware to lock up the customers to the local market.

    So i can flash a kiw l21 file in my kii l21 since they are the same

    I knew you would ask or tell that... :D

    So the answer is : Yes and NO ! ^^

    - No, because the system won't let you do so as default.
    - If you do a forced flash you could have strange behavior mainly due the /cust partition ! ^^

    - Yes, if you exactly know what you're doing and if you're kinda daredevil. ^^

    Watch what have been done here, you could find some clues :

    But it's very risky, so dont put the blame on me if you brick your pĥone, ok ? :D
