Beta firmware based on Android 5.1 Lollipop for Huawei Honor 6
The procedure to participate in the previous version of Android 5.1 Lollipop + EMUI 3.1 for Honor 6 is relatively simple. The steps for this update in the form of beta are:
– First, we must ensure that our Honor 6 corresponds to the version H60-L04 V100R001C00B380. To do this, we enter the Settings of the phone, access the section “About phone” and look at the section “Model Number” (or similar).
– To participate in the test version of this update we have to access this form from the website VMall.my, that happens to be an official website of Huawei.
– Next, we have to complete all the form data. That includes everything from our name to the IMEI number of our Honor 6, also via the serial number.
Of course, this form is hosted on the web page corresponding to Malaysia, so there is the possibility that the European or American versions of Honor in June are not compatible with the previous update. Regardless, the Android 5.1 Lollipop update will rollout Honor 6 worldwide, and it is only a matter of time they are completed to correct all the errors that may still exist in the file.
