Hi, all.
I found my old P9 lite, which i want to mod just for the heck of it. Sadly the EMUI version of it is stuck on 4.1.3 with no way to upgrade it. I recall there being a website that hosts the stock roms but it's down (it's under the cloud.huawei domain iirc)

Does anybody in the forums have a copy of the stock firmware with perhaps an update?

Build num: VNS-L21C900B157

Your FW is incomplete or incompatible, C128 is regional variant of Telenor HU.
Try to install this {Mod edit}. Instructions can be found in ReleaseDoc folder.
Then, unlock the bootloader and rebrand your phone to C432 eu version. With C432 you have a real chance to upgrade to Nougat.
Thanks. the C900 is the only rom i found when i had to re flash my phone. .ru sites always have surprises/hidden gems you cant find elsewhere huh

Okay so the C432 firmware is apparently incompatible with my phone, how do i rebrand my phone?

First of all, you must have the correct build number (i.e. the correct FW in the phone). With the C900 region you won't get the bootloader unlock code using DC-Unlocker (maybe with the PotatoNV method, I don't know).
Done. Bootloader has been unlocked, I have written down the code from back when they provided them
I'm stuck with figuring out what to do after the C128 has been installed

if someone downloads the original Huawei FW on this site, it's at their own risk (honestly, I haven't heard of a problem in 5 years). I don't think that the link to the page will somehow endanger xda...

That might be the case but we have our policy. And if a link/site is blocked by Malwarebytes we generally don't accept such a link/site.

All right, I take note. I just don't know how to help people when this is the only source of official Service FW (free)...
That's fair and I certainly acknowledge your dilemma especially as you're known to me as an always helpful member with a mindset that reflects XDA's spirit. But you also find criteria for not accepted links in rules no. 11 and 13 even if they were the only source.

B141? How did you get that build number?
Okay, try this way out:
- install TWRP 3.0.2.0

- 1. google how "HuRupdater" is used
2. Download HuRUpdater
http://www.mediafire.com/file/r14sor2g4cbugzw/HuRUpdater_0.4.zip
- Download 3 .zip files VNS-L21C432B391
https://mega.nz/file/YpV1jCxS#fcKQJiasn4mQKjeW9AUeSLcSvI7at01N6ReJh6BRhCM

https://mega.nz/file/49Vj0CBD#Mv5bIEdd7mOP0QFoOGtQytcYLW9o8twh4Dmpj4b_NP8

https://mega.nz/file/gkUFHQwA#O0Xi32sWEW6R9Z0RMU7AsPmEwcvsxZOmLbWmwu39JB0

Create a new folder, put the VNS firmware (3 files) and HuRUpdater-0.4.zip at that folder. Copy this new folder to SD card.
6. In TWRP flash the folder (tap on HuRupdater_0.4.zip and swipe).
7. Follow instruction on the screen (!)
8. Factory reset in stock recovery.
