How to enter flash mode

  • Fastboot: Hold Power + Volume Down for 10 seconds on boot. The device will not show any signs of being in fastboot mode (It'll just show the Huawei logo), so you should check with fastboot devices
  • This device has a locked bootloader, see Bootloader#Huawei

For some reason, adb reboot bootloader doesn't work. In fastboot mode, I also couldn't get a kernel to boot with pmbootstrap flasher boot.

Installation

You have to do an sdcard install since there doesn't seem to be any partition large enough for pmbootstrap flasher.

Make sure you have an unlocked bootloader. If not, Installation will not be possible. See Bootloader#Huawei for information on how to unlock it.

Status table explanation

Component Status Notes
Flashing P Flashing the kernel works, flashing the rootfs doesn't. (Use sdcard install)
Touchscreen Y evtest reports the correct values, can't test in a GUI.
Display P Splash screen works. Wayland compositors sometimes show up, but the screen flickers on and off. Xorg doesn't work at all.
WiFi N Nothing. Doesn't even show up in dmesg. The device seems to use an ath6k chipset, can't find any firmware in the Android filesystem.
