How to enter flash mode

TWRP

There is a non-upstreamed TWRP build for this phone. You can download it here

It could probably be installed using Linux, but it has been tested using the SP Flash Tool running on Windows. A "Scatter file" (txt file of a partition scheme) is needed, determines the offset that TWRP should be flashed to. Get a copy of that file here.

A key file is needed too, which can be obtained here.

Fill in these files in the SP Flash Tool. Set a checkbox on the recovery partition and browse to the TWRP file.

Turn of the phone, connect it and click on "download", a green check should appear after a while.

Enter TWRP by pushing Vol Up + Power, then navigate to recovery.

Installation

It isn't yet upstreamed into postmarketOS. Kernel copy can be found here: https://gitlab.com/eloydegen/huawei-y360-kernel

Mainline

It seems there is some support for this SoC, but only UART according to kernel documentation.
