How To Unlock Bootloader Of Huawei Honor Smartphones


How to Unlock Bootloader of Huawei Honor Smartphones




If you want to install custom ROMs, root your device, or flash custom recovery on your Huawei or Honor smartphone, you need to unlock the bootloader first. The bootloader is a program that runs before the operating system and controls what software can be loaded on the device. Unlocking the bootloader allows you to modify the software on your device and customize it to your liking.

However, unlocking the bootloader also voids the warranty of your device and may cause some security risks. Therefore, you should only do it if you know what you are doing and are willing to take full responsibility for your actions. In this article, we will show you two methods to unlock the bootloader of Huawei Honor smartphones: using an open-source tool called PotatoNV and using a paid service called DC Unlocker.


Method 1: Using PotatoNV




PotatoNV is an open-source tool that can generate bootloader unlock codes for several Huawei and Honor devices with Kirin processors. It was developed by Andrey Smirnoff, who managed to crack the bootloader unlock code generation algorithm for devices with Kirin 960/659/655 chipsets. The tool also uses a low-level bootloader flashing method discovered by XDA Senior Member hackintosh5.


To use PotatoNV, you need to open up your device and access the test points on the motherboard. The test points are small metal contacts that can be shorted with a tweezer or a wire to enter a special mode called VCOM_DOWNLOAD. This mode allows you to flash a modified bootloader that can accept any unlock code. The location of the test points varies depending on the device model, so you need to search for it online or follow the instructions provided by the developer.


Here are the steps to unlock the bootloader using PotatoNV:



  • Download and extract the zip file for PotatoNV from [here].



  • Launch the dc-unlocker2client.exe file and log in to the server. You can create a free account or buy credits if you don't have one.



  • Enable Manufacturer Mode on your phone by typing *#*#2846579#*#* into the dial pad. Then go to ProjectMenu > Background Settings > USB Ports Settings > Manufacture Mode.



  • Connect your phone to the PC using a USB cable and select HUAWEI USB COM 1.0 in the DC Unlocker tool.



  • Open up your phone and locate the test points on the motherboard. Short them with a tweezer or a wire while keeping the phone connected to the PC.



  • The DC Unlocker tool should detect your phone in VCOM_DOWNLOAD mode. If not, try again or check your drivers.



  • Launch the PotatoNV.exe file and select your device model from the drop-down menu. If your device is not listed, try different options until you find one that works.



  • Click on Read Phone Info and wait for the tool to read your IMEI number and generate an unlock code.



  • Save the unlock code in a Notepad file and disconnect your phone from the PC.



  • Extract the Huawei Unlock Bootloader.zip file and boot your phone into Fastboot mode by holding Volume Down and Power buttons together.



  • Connect your phone to the PC again and double-click on Unlock-Bootloader.bat file. Follow the prompts to enter the unlock code that you saved earlier.



  • Wait until the process is complete and reboot your phone. Your bootloader should be unlocked now.




Method 2: Using DC Unlocker




If you don't want to open up your device or use an unofficial tool, you can use a paid service called DC Unlocker to unlock your bootloader. DC Unlocker is a professional software that can unlock various devices from different manufacturers. It generates bootloader unlock codes for all Huawei and Honor deviceseven recently released devices like the Honor Note 10, Huawei Mate 20, and Honor Magic 2.
