Android Pie is now available for the Huawei Mate 10 Pro , and it is just that it has been installed in this region. Surprisingly, the distribution seems to have already begun in a stable and gradual way, leaving the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro in the background.
Last year we saw something similar with OnePlus, which updated the OnePlus 3 before the OnePlus 5 , a strategic move that we could start to get used to. Recall that the Huawei Mate 10 Pro carries the same processor as the Huawei P20, the Kirin 970, which facilitates the process even more.
How to install Android 9 on the Huawei Mate 10 Pro
As usual with all the roms of Huawei, the files corresponding to the Android 9 updates for the Huawei Mate 10 Pro have just been filtered in HiCloud . An update that brings with it the latest version of our operating system, as well as the ninth version of EMUI. The changes have not been too noticeable, although on paper, the new version of Android should provide greater performance and fluidity, in addition to better energy efficiency welcome on Kirin processors.
Being such a recent file you may find some difficulty when installing the ROM, however, these are the methods to update.
To install the ROM we can try several methods. The first thing is to have the ROM file at hand , as well as the Data File Update file . If You have the bootloader unlocked, you will only Have to execute the flash all bat file that you ‘ will find the zips When You unzip. This flashing is done through the beta flashy program .
If your bootloader is not unlocked, uncompress and rename the file to Update.zip . Inside this folder Update.zip, you will find a folder called dload, copy it to your microSD card . Now, turn off the phone and turn it on again by pressing VOL +, VOL – and Power. That way you should be able to force the update. If this does not work, try performing the same steps but typing * # * # 2 8 4 6 5 7 9 # * # * instead of turning off the phone. From this menu you can also force the update via SD card.
And if it does not work …
To wait. The update seems to have started in Europe , although it could take a few weeks to reach Spain, since it is one of the countries that take this type of updates the longest. Anyway, it’s great news that a terminal last year is receiving Android 9 before the end of the year.
After the Mate, the P20 should receive the update, something of which we have no doubt since since the summer these terminals run the beta of the ninth version of our operating system.
