Beta Software Update

An additional way to update a phone or a Huawei Honor is to use the official betas application. With it, they can access experimental and development updates, this is an aspect that you must take into account: maybe they have security or instability problems, that’s why they are not final versions!  Still, here’s how to update with the Huawei Beta app:

  • Periodically check for new projects: as they are closed, beta spaces for users are limited and are usually filled quickly.

Manually install the update files

This is the last official way to install updates: manually installing the update file. It is dangerous because if you make a mistake and try to install a firmware different from the phone model, it can damage your smartphone forever. Even so, it is useful to know this method, as it is sometimes the only way to renew the smartphone’s firmware. And even do an Unbrick on the phone. They reiterate how delicate this operation is, they should only perform it and have the correct update file and are willing to take the risks. For this:

  • Unzip the file you downloaded: they must have an « update. app «.
  • Create a folder in the storage root of your Huawei Honor that is called « dload » (Without the quotes) and place the file « « inside.

  • Press the volume buttons (+ and -) and, with these pressed, press the power button until the phone vibrates.
  • When you feel the vibration, release the power button while pressing the volume buttons.

  • Keep in mind that the data stored on the phone is most likely to be completely erased.

What you should know before updating your Huawei Honor phone with Android

So far, we’ve seen the four official ways to update a Huawei or Honor smartphone with Android. They are organized in order of difficulty and also by the level of risk, although you should keep in mind some considerations before updating:

  • Make backup copies if the update fails.
  • Protect your data and more personal elements, such as photos and videos. Google Photos is a good way to stay safe.
  • The fact that a smartphone receives an update does not mean that they will receive a notification immediately: the new versions are distributed in stages. And they differ in date by elements such as the country of the operator that sold the phone.
  • Although we all want the phone to be updated, a phone will not stop working because it has not been updated to the latest version of Android. Smartphones over two years old do not usually receive new versions, it is a feature of the Android market that we must face as men and not mice.
