When your attempt to root or install custom recovery like TWRP goes bad, and the device is stuck at logo, or keeps rebooting in a bootloop, then firmware is the good fix of all such issues.

(Use external storage if internal storage doesn’t wok for you.)

Step 4. Now, open the Update menu under Settings app.

Step 5. Tap on Menu key at bottom and select Local Update option.

Step 6. Your Huawei device will look for UPDATE.APP file inside the dload folder and upon finding one, will present you a pop-up menu.

Step 7. Choose Install. The firmware will begin installing.

That’s it. You have successfully installed the firmware on your Huawei Huawei device.

Now, power off your device. And then press and hold Volume up + Volume down + Power button together until you see the software update start installing. That’s it.
