    my current honor 6 built is B24 asian region can i use this update? and what do you mean by “device must be on stock firmware n stock recovery”?

    • Yes you can use the Asian region firmware and follow the above steps.
      “device must be on stock firmware n stock recovery” means if custom recoveries like TWRP or CWM installed on your device then it won’t work.

    • Yep, all for L04, have googled a lot and China L12 version doesn’t seem to popup anywhere. hoping CM comes with 7.0 Nougat directly for Honor 6, that will be a treat.
