The official Android 7.0 Nougat software is making its way to the market as the first leaked updates are being already spotted for devices like LG G5, Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, Sony Xperia X and X Performance and now for the Huawei P9. Since the Huawei P9 is the last device that was included in the Android 7.0 Nougat update list, today I decided to show you how to flash the new software package on your phone. Thus, during the lines from below you can learn from where to download the new C432B322 ROM builds for the Huawei P9 with model numbers EVA-L09 and EVA-L19.

The new Nougat update is also bringing the custom EMUI 5.0 UI to your Huawei P9 along with many other features and apps that can improve the Android experience. The C432B322 firmware is stable and it will smoothly run on your smartphone – there haven’t been reported any sort of problems until now by the users who have already tested the new Android 7.0 system on the Huawei P9 so you have nothing to worry about. However, in order to be 100% sure that everything will go as planned, I recommend you to make a Nandroid backup (if that’s possible) before completing the steps from below. Through the Nandroid backup operation you can save the current Android system that runs on your device – thus, you can easily go back to stock afterwards if that’s required.

This is an official update operation. Therefore, your Huawei P9 should already run on an official built of Android. Root access shouldn’t be ensured and the bootloader should also be locked. Otherwise you might not be able to successfully complete the steps from this tutorial. Overall, the conclusion is that you won’t risk anything by choosing to update to Android 7.0 Nougat C432B322 OS – the warranty won’t be lost and you won’t have to use complex or risky flashing tools.

What you do have to ensure is a backup. Saving your personal data, info, accounts and files is not optional as during the update operation your files might get corrupted or even wiped out – in some rare situations, for making things work, you might even have to make a hard reset and clear app data cache. So, be precautious and save your contacts, call logs, texts, images, videos, audio files, market apps, internet settings, EFS folder, IMEI / NVRAM data and so on.

Do note: you can easily backup your Huawei P9 by syncing your data with your account, by using built-in cloud storage platforms or by downloading compatible and already tested backup and restore apps from Google Play.

This is partially a manual process – there isn’t an OTA available for now so you have to manually flash the C432B322 Android 7.0 Nougat firmware package. Thus, along with your Huawei P9 you have to use your phone’s USB cable and a computer – on the computer you will download the update package. Also, on your smartphone the USB Debugging option must be checked – you can do so by heading towards “menu – settings – developer options” (if developer options aren’t enabled, before doing anything else go to “menu – settings – about phone” and tap 7 times repeatedly on Built Number until you get the ‘you are a developer’ message).

The battery aspect is another thing that must be considered. Since we are talking about an update procedure, it is indicated to ensure at least 50% power before resuming the guidelines from down below. Shortly, you have to plug in the charger if the power left is lower than the already mentioned threshold. If you don’t do it, your Huawei P9 might get turned off, and probably bricked, while you try to install the Android 7.0 Nougat system. So be careful and try not to mess things up.

How to Install Android 7.0 Nougat C432B322 on Huawei P9 (EVA-L09 and EVA-L19)

  1. Right from the start you have to download the required file. For the EVA-L09 model get the Nougat software from here and for the EVA-L19 version get the Android 7.0 firmware package from here.
  2. Save this file on desktop.
  3. Unzip this file in a separate folder – place it on desktop too. You should get a dload folder which must have the Update.app file inside of it.
  4. Power on your Huawei P9 and then connect your phone with your computer with the help of the USB cable.
  5. Now, from your computer select the dload folder (with the Update.app file inside of it) and transfer it on your device.
  6. When done, remove the USB cable as the computer is no longer useful.
  7. On your smartphone tap on Menu and go to Settings.
  8. Choose the Update menu and select the Local Update section.
  9. A pop-up menu should be now displayed.
  10. Just follow on screen prompts and resume the flashing process.
  11. Reboot in the end.

There you have it. That’s how you can install the new Android 7.0 Nougat firmware update on your own Huawei P9. Enjoy and stay close for further Android related tips and tricks along with other dedicate update procedures.
