How to Install EMUI 10 on Huawei Phone using Firmware Finder
There is an app call Firmware finder which is also used to get the latest EMUI updates on Huawei and Honor devices. So if the above method didn’t work for you then you can follow this method.
- Make sure that your Huawei or Honor device connected to an active internet connection.
- Go to Play Store or Huawei AppGallery and install the Firmware Finder for Huawei on your phone.
- Now open the Firmware finder app and it will detect your phone model and list the device model on top.
- Click on your phone model and it will show all the available Firmware including the latest update.
- Then from the list click on the latest update firmware that you want to install.
- It will take you to the next page where you will find various update options. Click on the IN-APP PROXY. Then click on OK to pass the alert message.
- Now it will show information in rServer. Like rServer: localhost Port:8080. Remember both server and port number as we have to use it.
- Minimize the App (do not close the app) and make sure the proxy server is running in the background (you can check in the notification panel).
- Now open Settings on your phone and go to WiFi to which your device is connected. Modify the network and enter localhost in server and 8080 in port. You need to enter the same server and port that you found from the Firmware finder app. I have used Localhost & 8080 just for an example.
- Once your device is connected to WiFi with custom server and port, go back to Settings.
- Then go to Updater in Settings and there it will show the latest available update (the same update that you choose from the available firmware list).
- Click on Update to start updating your Huawei or Honor phone to the latest version.
These two methods are tested and completely secure. Many users have tried and it is working for them very well. But you need to remember that it will only work if the EMUI 10 update is available in any region. Now you get to experience the EMUI 10 with unique features on your phone.
