Sometimes we find it difficult flashing or installing a new firmware on our Huawei smartphone or tablet because the stock recovery required for flashing OTA updates is either broken, or the phone is completely soft bricked. By this, it seems almost impossible to flash any stock firmware on the device.
As most (if not all) Huawei official firmware packages are basically OTA update.zip files, you need to flash from the phone’s storage.
If you have one of the problems mentioned above, follow the instructions below to learn how to flash the update via PC and without sdcard.
