Step 1. Plug your device into your computer using a USB cable and create a new folder named “HWOTA” in its external microSD card.
Step 2. After downloading and renaming the update files provided above, copy them over to the new HWOTA directory you created in the previous step.
Step 3. Download the Huawei P10 updater tool (click here to download) to your desktop and extract the HWOTA folder from the zip file.
Step 4. Unplug the USB cable and power your device off. Then, reboot into fastboot by reinserting the USB cable while simultaneously holding the Volume Down key.
Step 5. Open the HWOTA folder you extracted on your desktop (step 3) and open the update.bat file as administrator.
Step 6. The updater window will pop up and ask you to reboot your phone into fastboot mode. You’ve already done that so press Enter to continue.
Step 7. Next, the script will automatically replace your phone’s recovery and ask you to reboot into TWRP mode.
Simply disconnect the USB cable, hold the Power key to turn the phone off and then hold Volume up + Power for a few seconds to enter TWRP mode.
Step 8. Once you’ve entered TWRP recovery, connect the USB cable to your phone again, wait for a couple of seconds and then press the Enter key twice on your computer.
Step 9. For update source, type 1 and press Enter.
Step 10. In update type selection, again type 1 and hit the Enter key twice.
Step 11. Your phone will reboot into its recovery mode and start installing the update which can take a few minutes to complete.
