  1. Does this work for H60-L04 B831 update? I had tried to root with twrp and supersu 2.65 after updating and got into bootloop.

  2. I successfully Unlocked Bootloader, Rooted, Installed TWRP & also Xposed Framework on My Honor 6 with B831. But now if I choose to return to B570 what do I need to do. Can you pls let me know.. You can also mail me on my mail ID..

  3. not able to copy su folder contents in root of internal memory. file explorer does not show option of root folder and no permission to copy in the root folder using es explorer….any help will be appreciated

  4. Successfully rooted my honor 6 B831 with stock recovery still I cant update my phone, it always goes upto 5-7% in update screen then suddenly gets failed. I have tried several times to update with different recovery.img yet same result, plz tell me how to update to B840

  5. We stumbled here by a different web page and thought I should check things out. I like what I see so now i am following you. Look forward to exploring your web page for a second time.

  6. In the awesome scheme of things you’ll get a B+ for hard work. Exactly where you actually lost me personally ended up being on your specifics. As as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details… And it couldn’t be more true right here. Having said that, allow me tell you what did give good results. Your writing is actually extremely powerful and this is most likely why I am taking the effort to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, whilst I can easily notice a leaps in reasoning you make, I am not necessarily convinced of how you seem to unite your details which inturn help to make the final result. For right now I shall subscribe to your point however trust in the future you actually link your facts much better.
