Huawei has released yet another update to its latest flagship phone, the Huawei P9. The P9 device has been one of the most popular devices besides the Galaxy S7 and the LG G5 due to its stunning specifications and hardware configuration like the Leica camera support. It packs the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow firmware based on the latest EMUI 4.1 OS which has just been updated with the build number B136 as opposed to the B135 that the device currently runs. As the B135 came with some bugs and instability issues with the battery, camera, etc, the manufacturer has come up with some bug fixes and rolled out an OTA. It has been rolling out in waves across the globe which may take som time to hit your device. However, we have the full firmware file for the Huawei P9 which will not only update it but also restore the device to stock firmware. The full stock firmware zip file weighs a whopping a 2.24 GB. However, the OTA weighs only 117 MB. So if you have rooted or installed a custom recovery, then all these changes will be restored.

    Hello there, I’m not sure I get these instructions right. What EXACTLY am I supposed to do using the “ALTERNATIVE” way of the Forced Method (the VOLUME DOWN, UP AND POWER BUTTON method).
    Could you please respond with a picture of what exactly I should put inside the dload folder (which is found within the root of the internal storage or the micro SD card root.). I’ve downloaded the first file : dload-huawei-p9-eval09-eva-b136.zip. When I open this ZIP, there is a folder called “dload” inside the ZIP and within the “dload” folder, there is an UPDATE.APP file and two folders called “dt” and “hw”. What goes where… Within the “dt” and “hw” folders, there are three more files ending with .APP. Could you please tell me where and what to correctly place inside the “dload” folder in the root of your internal storage. Please, you’d be in a lot of help.
