    Hello Dear,

    Thanks, I have am updating my phone using the second method, but I just want to ask you, how can we verify this FW is the official untouched Firmware from Huawei? someone could tweak a firmware that was originally made by Huawei and add some background tools as a backdoor to users data, would really appreciate your response dear, as I am really worried here =)…

    Regards,

    Ayman

    • Download link is from huawei server, so how you can even think it could be modified? Modified firmwares can not be installed using official tools, so don’t worry

        Dear Mutahhar,

        I am sorry, I do not mean any offense when asking these questions but when I checked it seemed as if it’s uploaded to Huawei Cloud service, I thought this is a cloud storage service like Google Drive..etc, additionally I did not know the Huawei Updater tool is an official tool from Huawei.

        Regards,

        Ayman
