I use a Huawei MatePad 10.4 It seems HarmonyOS is not available for this device and also no alternative firmware.


This tablet has a lot of apps installed that I call Crapware. I would like to have only Open Source, but there seems to be nothing. I already use F-Droid apps.


There is No alternative firmware and No HarmonyOS for Huawei MatePad 10.4?

I did from HiSuite and it is possible to install it enrolling on beta tester users.

My tablet is in the Spain region, but you always can download it in the Chinese region and after that change it to your region.

Anyway, you shod have into account that YouTube Vance it is not working if you want to do a clean update, this app is really important for me at least.

Some other apps have had issues in the last versions if you update them, like Spotify, Swiftkey... At least I had problems whit them.

Finally, I can not install GMS because LZplay is not compatible with the tablet

Hi,
I have the model BAH3-W59 (c605)
Do you think that I can update to HarmonyOS?
And how did you updated using de HiSuite?

I use HiSuite on macOS (from Mac App Store) and don't see an option to install HarmonyOS. Please help.
I don't have a Huawai account, maybe this the problem?

Connect the tablet to the computer and install the suite, the setup will be launched automatically.

Then look for the update button.

I have the model BAH3-W09, I don't know about your model. Sorry and luck

Hi dears!

You can follow the below tutorial link to update the Harmony OS on Huawei Matepad 10.4 BAH3-L09 and most of the other Matepad 10.4 models also work as well. Just try it.

Already Tested.. 100% working!

Unfortunately I did both. Keeps telling there is no update...

For me, it worked well. Here I have attached some screenshots for your information.

Yes!!! I have the BAH3-L09 model and after try it several time I got it. I found this video
, where I saw how the autor configured the regions to Hong Kong in app galley and My Huawei app. Selecting both regions to China didn't work for me. Tomorrow I will update because it is a 4,27Gb update

I think I know the reason why it is not updated, even though it is the bah3-l09 model, what changes in the firmware version is the year of the tablet and I think that the tablets of 2020 cannot update only those from 2021 onwards.
