  1. I have tried it and it breaks the possibility to upgrade Huawei firmware from DLOAD in extSD.
    The only way to upgrade firmware with this recovery is to have firmware in zip format, and that’s hard to find.
    Luckily I did a dump of the original recovery.img before trying it.

    • Hi, can you email me the original recovery.img? I made that mistake.
