Huawei Nova Plus MLA-L03 Nougat B300 Firmware Update (Canada-Rogers)

After a long wait, finally Huawei Nova Plus MLA-L03 Canadian version by rogers has been upgraded to nougat, as there is no final nougat announcement by huawei, this would be considered as beta version.

Update changelog

Huawei designed EMUI 5.0 based on the newly released Android 7.0. The brand new EMUI 5.0 is inspired by the pure blues and whites of the Aegean Sea. The interface is simple and smart, and EMUI 5.0 comes with enhanced, powerful performance that allows mobile phones to operate more smoothly.

[Recommendations]

  • A cleaner, more interactive interface A brand new UI and effects inspired by the blues and whites of the Aegean Sea. Simplified gestures, with most operations completed in 3 steps.
  • EMUI 5.0 is more customisable, offering an optional Android App Drawer layout to users.
  • Enhanced features System operations are more fluid, allowing you to view a massive amount of images, browse websites, and perform searches faster.

  • Notifications An optimised design combines shortcuts with notifications to reduce the complexity of user actions.
  • Touch and hold notifications to quickly block messages and notifications.
  • Reminder cards are stacked to save space.
  • Three dimensional task management Tasks are stacked three dimensionally on the UI. Smooth gestures allow users to scroll through tasks by sliding up and down or dismiss tasks by swiping left or right.
  • Camera now supports plug-in management. Infrequently used modes, like document scan, are presented as plug-ins.
  • Customisation and sharing features added to name cards. The sharing feature allows quick sharing of contacts through Bluetooth, Facebook, and other methods. Added a scanner to the search box and lock screen, making it easier to add new contacts.
  • Improved how unread emails are tagged in the inbox. Users can now quickly delete, star, and mark emails as read or unread from the left sliding menu.
  • Added a newly designed drawer feature. When this feature is enabled, it hides non-system preset apps in a drawer on the home screen, presenting you with a simple and tidy layout.
  • Added a new drawer feature for settings. For settings that take two or more steps to set up, the user can now jump directly back to the main settings page with one gesture.
  • Added eye comfort mode, enabling you to adjust the screen color temperature manually to lessen visual fatigue.

    Thank you for this instructions. It helped me to update my phone and now it is much better.

    I did the method 2 and both steps went through. But i’m still on the same NRD90M test-keys i was before….

    • Rename “update_data_full_MLA-L03_rogers_ca.zip” as “update.zip” then copy it to dload and try to update again.
      if result remains same then chances are your phone had different cust number,
      This firmware is only for models with cust number C605.

  5. Fraser Eales says:

    My update.App only goes to 40 and then fails. Is this because I don’t have unlocked bootloader?
