    I think you can do it with Huawei HiSuite, but it's Windows or MacOS only.

    However I've never done manual firmware flashing on a Huawei device using a computer. So can't help you with exact details.

    Get a SD card, I'll try to post the rest sometime later, a quick internet search or a look on the forums here might be faster though. I'd hate to post the wrong info even though I'm pretty sure I know the answer.

    It's been quite awhile lol.

    Are you referring to the bloatware junk that some Huawei devices might come with, e.g. TikTok/Douyin, etc. I think re-flashing Huawei P10 Lite factory firmware, won't really do anything for that. Some of it you might just be able to uninstall, the normal way.

    And if you're referring to this SP Flash Tool, https://spflashtools.com/ That's for certain Mediatek(MTK) devices, and is Windows only. The P10 has a HISilicon Kirin processor.

    Has your P10 been rooted, hacked, and modified or something? Hence your need to re-flash it. Which I believe is actually quite difficult to do on this device. And would only come from the factory with what Huawei intended for it.


    Yeh, that's for "devices powered by Mediatek Chipset" which the P10 is not. So it won't work, as this phone is powered by Huawei's own Kirin chipset, like all Huawei and Honor phones are.

    Well if it isn't ,then all you need to do then is just perform a factory reset, and it will be back to exactly as Huawei originally made the phone, NO "spyware" and no need to flash firmware.

    I already tryed to do factory reset.
    Don't know what the virus exactly is,but it's just remain.

    Well what exactly makes you think it has "spyware" or "virus"? Because factory resetting will erase everything apart from the Huawei factory firmware(EMUI).

    Check your Google and Huawei accounts are secure, and haven't been compromised.

    Well here are the symptoms :
    phone i so slower than usual
    the battery drops quickly
    someone just control my phone : closing my loaded apps,some of settings had changed without even i touch them
    also someone has been logged in my Gmail with windows machine (I only use to login with my android phone and linux).
    The interesting is that when i remove the sim and stop the wifi,phone is few times faster.

    Well you could try it. But I'm going to say that tutorial is bullshit. Mainly because that's all about flashing a device that has a Mediatek(MTK) chipset.

    I'll repeat, Huawei P10 does NOT have a Mediatek chipset!!

    Kirin is Huawei's own chipset, that all Huawei and Honor phones use.

    BTW that BS site also posts exactly the same "tutorial" for phone that's not even been released yet. Really!
    Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. Samsung might not even call it that.
    https://flashifyit.com/flashing-guides/how-to-flash-samsung-galaxy-s22-ultra/
    A forthcoming flagship Samsung device will absolutely not be using cheap Mediatek chipsets.

    Unfortunately it's nearly all bullshit sites for Huawei P10. I came across this YT video, where the procedure seems to be correct for this phone, but that's about it.


    Good luck!!

    Could be the phone is just getting old, and becoming unstable. The P10 has been around for four years now. Of course flashing firmware won't fix a knackered battery.

    I've just retired a Huawei Mate10, which is a very similar phone to the P10. Mainly because it was showing permanent notification warnings about "Battery health is deteriorating". This phone had been used heavily and charged everyday for over three years.

    Definitely check that your Gmail account hasn't been compromised. Change the password, and enable two-factor login if you haven't already.

    Android really does not have viruses. And spyware is extremely rare. The main thing Android devices can get infected with is malware mostly adware.

    Change your passwords and setup two step verification wherever you can. You can even create a new Gmail account.
