Huawei Honor 6 Plus: EMUI 3.1 + Android 5.1 Lollipop Software Update

Category : Huawei, Tech News · (2) Comments · by Sep 30th, 2015

Previous Emui 3.0 working perfectly until recently, Spotify music tracks unable to be skip by press on steering wheel skip button. This happened out of sudden, seems like the Huawei “Music” (Version V7.1.20) system app somehow overwrite the command codes. The skip button will trigger or skip Huawei Music tracks and pause Spotify music playing, instead of skipping tracks on Spotify as usual. This annoyed me for weeks, done several methods such as reinstall both apps, “Clear data” in Music app, change other app as default music app as Spotify doesn’t appear in default music app selection and re-pair bluetooth, but no luck.

Since lazy to do factory reset, so i put my hope on the on coming official EMUI 3.1 + Android 5.1 Lollipop software update that released on 29th September 2015, stated on Honor India Facebook Page. Day after hihonor official release the official update package on their website, i downloaded and upgraded it with “Local update” method.

The update file “PE-TL10C900B324.zip” (1.24 GB) can be download at: hihonor support page . Under “Downloads Section”, with title name “PE-TL10C900B324 Upgrade Software“, description “This upgrade software is for Honor 6+ upgrade to Lollipop (Android 5.1) [LARGE FILE:~1.34GB]

Steps to upgrade to EMUI 3.1:

Strongly recommend to perform whole update progress by using stable Wi-fi connection and fully charged battery.

i) download PE-TL10C900B324.zip package
ii) unzip and copy extracted “dload” file (with UPDATE.APP in the folder) into SD card or internal storage
iii) go to Setting -> update -> press on “Menu” at bottom -> choose “Local update”, then it will show you a file as below:
iv) select and install it. It takes around 25 minutes for the whole update, 15 min for update and booting, another 10 min for applications optimizing process, will take longer if there are plenty of apps.
v) Note that all applications data such as: contacts, photos, downloaded files and WhatsApp history will be remain as usual.
vi) Once the phone boot in, it will be lagging for another 10 – 15 minutes due to syncing and checking version of installed apps. In my case, Google Service needed to be update before i can use Google applications as normal.
vii) Basically EMUI 3.1 update are done for now. Few things i need to do are, update apps to compatible with Android Lollipop, Re-arrange quick toggles and change the navigation bar setting to my preference.

How to: make Huawei Swype Keyboard Perform Faster

Category : Huawei, Tech News · No Comments · by Aug 6th, 2015

After weeks of using of using Huawei Honor 6 Plus, i experience lagging Swype Keyboard that is very annoying when you in a hurry. This happened when multiple apps were running behind, you may kill all the apps to make it type smoother, but that may interrupt progress of writing.

In lagging situation, Swype will prompt up on-screen keyboard slower, swiping words will lag and follow by delayed swipe trace animation. Fast fingers will find it more troublesome as it unable to catch up typing speed by drop out letters or short words.

IMO, this is because of EMUI left out optimization of Swype, and it was categorized as those application that can use less CPU processing power. So, when the system was set as “Smart” Power plan (By default), it will automatically adjust the CPU and only allow certain apps (ex: games) can use more processing power.


To make Swype Keyboard perform faster, go to Setting -> under Device section, Power saving -> scroll up a little bit -> select “Normal

I restarted the phone, and the Swype Keyboard is performing fast and instant for days.
