    In The Netherlands, I’m not able to update my VIE-L09 (P9 plus)

    I set my location in the HiCare app to 中国, and didn’t allow the app to use my location.
    The error was: 请使用注册地为中国的华为帐号。(Use the Huawei-account with the registration address in China)

    I guess this method doesn’t work for people that already created their Huawei account before, maybe it’ll work when making a new Huawei account and registrate it in China.

    EVA-L19 user here, didn’t received any update since B399SP02, which is launched 3 months ago. Looks like P9 global version won’t receive Oreo update anymore
