Personally, I’m not a big fan of Huawei. Every since they got hammered by the Trump administration, I’ve consciously avoided their phones altogether.

It’s not my fault. For some of us, living without Google Play services is almost akin to living without one’s smartphone (I’d literally just die!)

But who knows, now that Trump has been given the Boot, maybe I can start thinking about Huawei again.

About the Huawei flash tool

Huawei flash tool

The Huawei Flash Tool is basically a firmware flashing tool that can be used for any smartphone with a Mediatek chipset to upgrade their software, repair them, unlock them, unbrick them among other cool super powers.

Before you download and activate this tool, I want to say two important things. One, Richeetech will not be held liable if any thing bad befalls your android smartphone (for instance, say you mistakenly Brick your phone). Use at your own risk.

A few System requirements…

Least I fail to mention, there are certain system requirements you need to fulfill before you get started. So before hand make sure that:

  • You’re using a Windows PC
  • You have a USB Cable.
  • You must have installed MTK USB drivers on your PC
  • You’re using this tool for devices with MediaTek chipsets only (don’t try it on a Snapdragon or Kirin)
  • You have charged the battery of your device above 50% minimum.
  • You have the right firmware for your device

Step 8: Now we turn our direction to your Huawei device. Switch it off and plug it to the computer. Press the volume up or down key so that the flash tool can recognize your phone. Once this happens, the Flashing process will begin automatically (all other things being equal) and be done within about 10 mins.

Step 9: Once the installation process is completed, you will see a green checkmark popup on the screen. To finalize, simply close the Huawei flash tool and disconnect the device from your system. You’re all set!

Important things to remember

Here are a few things to note as you try out any of the above listed on your phone. Not doing so may result in some very unfortunate outcomes for your phone. Please proceed with caution.
