    If you have reached to this page by searching then you know why you want to download the Stock Huawei firmware for your device using the Firmware Finder app. If not, then let me explain why you need to download the firmware using the Huawei Firmware finder Application and what is wrong with the official Honor support page.
     

    Here is, why you need Huawei Firmware Finder app to download the stock firmware:

    I have an Honor 6x and I will explain by taking that as an example.
    I think, following is the link is the Honor support page for India: https://www.hihonor.com/in/support/index.html

    When I searched for firmware download for the Honor 6x, the best Firmware that I could find there is the Android 6.0, EMUI 4.1, C675B132, India Channel, while currently I am running on Android 7.0, EMUI 5.0.2, C675D002.

    There is a huge delta in availability of firmware in the official support page and the actual update. I am sure that this pretty much tells everything why do you need this third party application to download Huawei Stock firmware.

    Following is a screenshot of the current Firmware I am running on my Honor 6x:

    Currently Running EMUI 5.0.2 on Honor 6x

    • A windows PC (Only required if you are using the Huawei Firmware Finder Windows Application)

     

    I will obviously take you through a series of step-by-step guide for each process.
