How to Update
Compatibility: Verify your phone’s model from Settings > About Phone and make sure you have VTR-L09 on Vodafone Europe network. You’re also going to need your bootloader unlocked.
Step 1. Plug your phone into the computer via USB and create a new folder named “HWOTA” in the external microSD card.
Step 2. Download & rename the update files (update.zip, cust and public data) as mentioned above and transfer them to the new HWOTA folder you just created in the previous step.
Step 3. Next, download the Huawei P10 updater tool (click here) and extract the HWOTA folder from the zip file to your desktop.
Step 4. Disconnect the USB cable and power your phone off. After that, reboot into fastboot/bootloader mode by re-inserting the USB cable while holding the Vol Down key at the same time.
Step 5. Open the HWOTA directory you extracted in step 3 on your PC and open the update.bat file as administrator.
Step 6. The updater tool will appear on the screen and prompt you to reboot your phone into fastboot mode. As you’ve already done that (step 4), press the Enter key to continue.
Step 7. The script will replace your phone’s stock recovery and then ask you to reboot into TWRP mode.
Now simply disconnect the USB cable, power the device off by holding the power key and then hold vol up + power for a few seconds to enter TWRP recovery.
Step 8. Once you’re in TWRP mode, reconnect the USB cable to your phone, wait for a couple of seconds and then press the Enter key twice on your PC.
Step 9. To select the update source, type 1 in the command window and press Enter.
Step 10. In the next step (update type selection), again type in 1 and hit the Enter key twice.
Step 11. Your phone will now automatically shut down, reboot into recovery and start installing the update.
