  10. If ur honor 4x is EMUI is 3 and OS is Android 4.4.4, then you may not be able to upgrade it straight to Marshmallow which is the recent version for honor 4x. I had the same issue and I called the Huawei service center but no use. But I did this, I have upgraded the OS version to 5.1.1 from 4.4.4, then upgraded to 6’1 and it worked. Try downloading the 5.5.1 rom first, unzip the pack, copy the dload folder to ur SD card and then upgrade it from updater-local update option. Wait for the upgrade to be complete and then do the same to upgrade it to 6.1.

  11. I am from India customer support said that I can update marshmallow software to my honor 4x phone am trying it many times it does not work. as u said am tried it says failed how to upgrade this please help me.
