    Some images could have been better. I tried this for a spare phone and after wasting so much time and reaching to fast boot screen with green android boot it was always giving me error. Btw I generated bootloader unlock code from Huawei website. Now after so many tries I got a message FRP Unlock but now after running the command to transfer this recovery file there is no progress.

    Huawei is such a piece of crap.

  2. Hi
    Am i supposed to move the (twrp-3.1.0-0-kiwi.img) file into SDK>Platform tools file?
    I tried doing so, but when i entered “fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.1.0-0-kiwi.img”, it showed: C:Userstayst>fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.1.0-0-kiwi.img
    error: cannot load ‘twrp-3.1.0-0-kiwi.img’
    What should i do?
