  • Optimized traffic management to automatically add the traffic leftover from the previous month to the current month

Download link:

The Build can be downloaded by following this OTA download link or just use the direct links below,

EMUI-EVA-C900B040SP11-log (android 7.0)…/changelog.xml…ull/

Installation Instructions:

Once you’ve downloaded the OTA zip file, you can flash it by placing the file onto the base directory of the internal storage or SD card. After you’ve done that, enter into the software update screen by either holding power + both volume buttons while booting, or by entering the “ProjectMenu” settings screen by dialing *#*#2846579#*#* into the dialer app. Either way you should be able to manually update your phone using the update captured from the OTA link. This is, of course, assuming that you are already on the latest, untouched stock build for the Huawei P9. You will likely be unable to use the OTA update if you are running a custom ROM, so you’ll have to flash back to stock. Luckily, Huawei provides those files for you to flash.
