        Hi. I got the same problem “the firmware does not exist”. And have a questions:
        1. dload folder should be created in the internal storage/root/sdcard/ ?
        2. after moving update.app and data.zip to the dload – should I delete the HwOU/69374 folder?

        • Yes delete hwOU folder, and please use sd card, make dload folder in sd card sdcard/dload

          • polis says:

            Now after (Vol up, vol down and power) it start installing but after some time I am getting “Software install failed”. Can you help to go over that as well?
            In my: sdcard/dload/ i have following now:
            UPDATE.APP
            update_data_full_vodafone_default.zip

          • polis says:

            After the error it still can be run with the stoke rom… But I need somehow to get the Android 7 on this phone.

          • Please refresh this page, alternative method has been added. Try it

        • polis says:

          Thanks. I am trying it now (27% downloading…). Will let you know the results…
          Is it possible to flash the unbranded rom to the P9 vodafone, so in the future get all ota updates for this device. If yes then how, do you have a guide?

  6. Giampy10 says:

    Hi, at 35 % “softaware installation failed”. Any help?!?! I have created on the sd a folder “dload” and in this folder i move UPDATE.APP from update.zip . NOW I HAVE A BOOTLOOP FOR THIS GUIDE.

  7. Going to test if the alternative method works
    Just to be clear, will my warranty still be valid after these?
    (I don’t think I will end up needing the warranty, but a little piece of mind goes a long way)

  8. andy levenson says:

    I followed the 2nd method, download completed and the install completed. Says device updated. It then reboots the phone and when it tries to verify update on the phone, it just says software install failed and the only option is to reboot. I’m still on Android 6.0. Can you tell me what might be wrong ?

  9. andy levenson says:

    thanks, I thought the 2nd method was the one to follow and I’ve seen a previous comment to say it does work, just wondering if I haven’t done something correctly after the install.

  10. andy levenson says:

    L09C02B132

  11. andy levenson says:

    ok thanks for the advice, I’ll let you know how I get on.

  12. Catarina says:

  13. Andy Levenson says:

    hi, I can’t seem to find a working link for L09C02B135 or B137. Do you have one ?

  14. Paff says:

    Hi there, works for me, from L09-C02B137, branded vodafone uk, data still here, still vodafone branded. Limited tests so far but look great. Thanks for the guide

  15. andy levenson says:

    any chance of a link to L09-C02B137, can’t seem to find one. By the way Paff, how did you do the upgrade, was it the 2nd method ?

  16. andy levenson says:

    sorry missed your link to B137, thanks I’ll try that later today.

  17. Nuno Lima says:

    Hi, i used the second method and it’s all perfect. Now i want to install B340 and even using the same method,dload folder or FFinder app i cant upgrade(goes to 100% and failed)

  18. Andy Levenson says:

  19. tom says:

  20. Andy Levenson says:

    Hi Mutahhar the link you provided for Nuno was that for the B340 update ? I downloaded it to dload folder it did the update but still says I’m on B339.

  21. Matthew silvester says:
