What is your build number though? As it is required to be on build EVA-L09C432B182 (android 6 (EMUI 4.1.1)) in the UK in order to receive the beta update.

My build is the same but with B166 at the end and not B182. Also it says I'm joined in the beta app as well as saying congratulations you are able to opt in to the beta programme just seems strange to say I'm eligible but have the wrong build number to receive the beta.

you should at some-point receive an OTA to get to B182, then from there to the B322 (or newer if newer is out by then).

I presume you have tried to look for the update manually? I.e. go to the "updater" app and click "check for update"?

I waited 8 days from signing up, then emailed Huawei (didn't get a reply), then received the B182 OTA on the day I sent the email. Received the Beta OTA the day after.

Email them, can't do any harm:good:

I don't get where your going with this?

I've debranded my handset so it has no carrier bloatware and your now saying I need to add it back on?

I think he meant 'de-brand' but you've already done this. I fixed your issue of logging in to the beta by signing out of 'Huwaei ID' in 'Settings' and clearing the app data for it. Opened the Beta app again and signed in with my ID. All good

So, tried your method but where under settings/apps do you see Huawei ID to clear the app data? I do not see anything that says ID or Huawei ID under settings/apps.

It's been driving me nuts. I've contacted the UK customer support via email, they were very responsive but they keep on telling me that my device won't qualify because it was from Taiwan even though it's on B182 build. Tried to explain it to them but they are stuck on this NOT PURCHASED in EU stuff. And I still can't login or find the necessary file to flash it via the normal method (non-twrp method)

I may be getting the wrong end of the stick here but in the Beta app , under Personal, there is a big read log out button, maybe this is what he meant.

Try this log out and then clear app and data from the Beta app in Settings->apps

I've tried that before and again after your post, not working unfortunately. And none of these zip files out there for B322, B330 or B360 working for me with the dload method. Maybe TWRP might help but I think I will hold out for the official OTA whenever that may be.

So, not having heard anything back from Huawei I contacted them and got the following reply
Huawei UK Support said:
Thank you for the screen shot and the information.

Based on the information that you provided, it does not appear that you enrolled in time to start the beta project. I honestly don't know why they didn't close access to this project or at least provide you an response of this (it would have been nice, no?). The screenshot that you sent only confirms that your device is eligible based on hardware specifications. However, it seems that the we reached the limit of enrolled beta users.

We apologize for the inconvenience. The good news is that your device should receive the actual Android N update once testing is done (... unless something drastically wrong occurs for the P9 testing, of course). Be looking for this in the next few months.

Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions, now, or in the future. Thank you again for contacting Huawei UK Customer Care. Have a good day.

So there you have it...

@Huawei UK - was enrolled on the beta but had to roll back to fix an issue caused by a third party app, it hasn't given the option to redownload though

    Good news for Huawei P9 owners, we are giving some of you the chance to help us test out EMUI 5 and Android N on your Huawei P9.

    Sounds great yeah? Just remember this is going to be pre-release software, things may be broken, you may end up struggling to use your phone, but that's all good we want you to help us find & squash the bugs.

    So what do you need to do to get the new stuff on your phone? Well that is easy, you install an app, enroll on the project and then towards the end of the month we will be pushing out the OTA to those that have had their applications approved (First 200).

    So what do you need?

    - An open market (unlocked) version of Huawei P9 (Eva-L09)
    - To be based in the UK.
    - To have an active SIM card in your phone.
    - To be on build number C432B166 (Latest UK open market firmware)
    - It cannot be bootloader unlocked, it cannot have a custom recovery or be rooted to receive the OTA.

    You can get the APK for the BETA app & the guidelines for how to install and enrol from here (sorry we can't post links yet.....) "h t t p://download-c.huawei.com/download/downloadCenter?downloadId=91768&version=358232&siteCode=uk"

    Once downloaded install it on your phone, when you run the app on your phone you will be prompted to either log into an existing Huawei ID account (the one you use to download EMUI themes will do) or to create a new one, once done you can accept the terms

    To enroll on the BETA test you will need to be on build number C432B166 (for UK), after your enrollment and approval, an OTA to update UK Huawei P9 from C432B166-> C432B182 will be prompted. Once you are on C432B182, you will get the N version on Beta release.

    Numbers are limited, when we hit the limit of enrolled users that is it. This is a project to help find bugs and issues before the general rollout of future updates for the Huawei P9. It is not a general public rollout.

    If you have problems either installing the APK, signing into Huawei ID or enrolling on the BETA please leave the following details in the email below and we will get back to you.

    Country you are using the phone in:

    Before upgrade, I want to know if once the beta is installed, I will still receive OTA ? Will I be able to update with the final nougat rom ? Thank you for your answers :cowboy:

    Yes. I have got a confirmation from Huawei Lithuania they will send an instruction when final version will be available. OTA through the updater will be for beta's only for now, update to official will be triggered through HiCare app, but yes, BETA will be updated to Final too.

    Ola Marques - Boa Tarde. I have joined the Beta program for the Honor 8. I see that the appa collect lots of info from your phone and sends to Huawei servers in EU and China. What happens if you have sensitive info on your phone like passwords banking apps etc. Will they be able to get all of this?

    Obrigado Roberto
