          Guess I’ll have to wait for Huawei to grace me with the OTA update… :/

    • KII is for KII only. It will not work on KIW because of some lines in updater script. It is for KII-21. When you updating it. It will automatically read the script and check your phone’s build.fingerprint which is KIW but in the script its KII. So no chance at all my friend.

      Sorry for my bad english.
