Huawei Mate 7 Lollipop 5.1.1 upgrade for Middle East / Africa (Final & Stable)

if you are one of those users who didn’t received OTA upgrade in Middle East  for this giant smartphone mate 7. then i have good news for you, i have successfully upgraded my Huawei Mate 7 phone with lollipop firmware and its smooth and perfect. on some blogs people are telling huawei removed some feature but it is totally wrong, they just changed the way you can activate few things, e.g huawei swype keyboard , it is there but they made google keyboard as default.
as i own Mate 7 Gold (32 GB version) so this guide is strictly for MT7-TL10 version.

    hello, do i have to pay to download software for my mate 7?
    however, please give me the link to the appropriate site for the download.

    • No, download is absolutely free
      Dial * #* #2846579#*#* and then tap on project menu then network information and then tap on vendor/operator info.
      Tell me whats written in vendor/country
      Then i can give correct link

    hi mutahhar
    thnx for your precious support for hw owners. my phone is mate 7 mt7-tl10v100r001c00b131> idid the test by entering *#*#2846579#*#* as per your instructions above a message shown (operator name:hw, Country Name:meafnaf). do this means somthing different than the upgrading link you posted here and which software is suitable to my phone…thank you

  11. Eng Beyaty says:

    update: i did update my phone to lollipop based on your downloaded software link , once the phone worked normally another update has been shown by the phone on air update for marshmallow and EMUI4 . should i go through this update or I abandon it, i have read some threads stating that it has some problems especially in battery fast drainage and the long charging time taken to battery to full charge. according to your experience, is that true? i will postpone this update and be awaiting your response . thank you

    • You should install it, those who face problems have installed wrong firmware on their devices, if you don’t like marshmallow you can roll back to lollipop.
      Is it showing B560 update?

  12. Eng Beyaty says:
