  57. Hi,
    I tried updating my P8 Lite build number ALE-L02C636B170 using “Download Huawei P8 Lite ALE-L02 Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA File” but after the phone rebooted and about to install the update I got an error message “sorry update failed” or something. Is my build upgradable to Marshmallow 6.0? Anyone manage to update their P8 lite with build number ALE-L02C636B170. Please help…

    • Hi, I’m about to upgrade my phone. we do have same build number B170. does the update works for you? I need to make sure before I ran it to my phone. Thanks in advance.

  58. Hi Joe,
    I’ve had similar issues trying to upgrade an Australian (Telstra) L02 P8 Lite and despite it being the same region as the Asian Pacific update, it’s not a compatible country. Really annoying as neither my Wifi or Bluetooth will switch on so I was hoping a new firmware might solve my problem. Looks like I’ll have to wait a couple of months for my current contract to expire and then get the new P9 Lite

    (I only DLed the third RAR file and unzipped it.)
    Regarding steps 1-6 –
    2. – You should explain that the file(s) above must be unzipped, and the UPDATE-APP will be then befound inside the unzipped folder “SOFTWARE”.

    The 3rd file above indicates “Bulgaria”. Is this OK for North America?
