Here is what you need to download the official Huawei P10 VTR-L09 firmware flash file onto your computer. You can then use one of the compatible flashing tools to update the firmware on your smartphone or tablet.

Flashing tools were initially developed by the companies that were associated with the device’s hardware and were mainly kept in-house, adopted in back rooms of smartphone repair centers to fix common mobile device-related problems. The tools were later published on the Web for anyone to use. Now you can solve the same kinds of issues that were once left up to those repair centers: bootloops, soft-brick situations, software errors, software bugs, update errors, so forth, by downloading the software onto your computer instead. What’s more, installing the Huawei P10 VTR-L09 flash file is an easy task, thanks to the flashing tool’s user-friendly interfaces that usually require just one click before the flashing is underway.

Most third-party developers who create tools for helping you customize your devices—the teams that work on custom recovery images, rooting applications, et cetera—recommend sticking with custom software if you have already changed the system partition or replaced the stock recovery partition with a custom one. If you are to go back to stock Android on the device, though, they strongly suggest flashing the firmware yourself instead of accepting the over-the-air updates. This is because OTAs can create unexpected behavior since they are often only patching over existing software instead of completely replacing it.

The flashing tools, such as the Smartphone Flash Tool, are always computer applications. On most occasions, these apps are relatively small files and will not take up much hard drive space.

You can sometimes have a choice of what flashing tool you want to use to flash the Huawei P10 VTR-L09 stock firmware. You can flash stock ROMs with tools that work for either the system chip found in the device’s hardware, the firmware file type, or on occasion, apps that are designed to work for a particular manufacturer. And depending on the file, there are times when you can flash firmware directly from the device’s recovery mode, too.

What you can achieve with stock firmware files:

  • Upgrade or downgrade the version of Android on your device
  • Fix common mobile device-related problems, such as unbearable bugs in the software
  • Remove custom recovery images such as TWRP
  • Unroot the Android operating system, regardless of what method/tool you may have used to get root access
  • Unbrick your smartphone or tablet

How to Install Huawei P10 VTR-L09 Flash File Using Smartphone Flash Tool

To install the firmware, you need to use a flashing tool that works for your manufacturer and run it on a computer. One flashing tool that works for this smartphone is the smartphone flash tool. Here is how to use it:

Notes:

  • Back Up Your Data. You should always back up your data before you begin flashing new firmware files to your smartphone or tablet. All of your pictures, music, videos, documents, etc. should be still on your device after you have updated the firmware, but you may need to restore the contacts and applications from a backup.
  • Wipe Cache and Factory Reset. Some people claim that taking a factory reset isn’t necessary after updates, but at the very least you should wipe the system cache after installing new firmware. This way you can help eliminate any performance issues and battery draining bugs. Taking a factory reset is the best way of avoiding common problems many users face after applying software updates.

Before We Begin

  • Make sure you have:
    • A desktop computer or laptop that is running on a version of the Windows or Linux operating system (ideally Windows 10 but at least Windows 7).
      • Note: The Windows and Linux SP Flash Tool files are separate files. If you have Windows, make sure you download the version for Windows. Likewise, if you have Linux, make sure you download the version for Linux.
    • A USB data cable that allows you to connect your smartphone or tablet to the computer.
    • The scatter loading file/files you want to flash to the smartphone or tablet.
  • You need to install USB drivers on the computer that allows for your smartphone or tablet to connect with the flashing tool. Several drivers can achieve this. If the drivers in the tutorial do not work for your device, try getting in contact with your smartphone’s manufacturer via an official website or phone number, or use a driver that works for MTK-based chipsets.
  • We recommend backing up the smartphone or tablet before getting started. The SP flash tool is a reliable tool, but whenever you are installing firmware regardless of the tool, it is possible you may want to restore the old version of your device. You can only do that from a backup.
  • You need to download a version of the SP flash tool during the tutorial. You should always download the latest version of the tool. If that version does not work, try using an older version. Latest versions of tools have the best chance of being compatible.

1. Download the SP Flash Tool onto your computer.

2. Download the official OEM USB driver for your manufacturer onto your computer, or try using the Android USB driver or Universal ADB driver if your OEM is not listed.

3. Turn off the smartphone by long-pressing the Power button.

Some experts recommend removing the battery if your smartphone comes with a removable battery. Most newer smartphones do not come with removable batteries so you will not be able to do it. Since most people use the flashing tool without removable batteries, it is fine for you to use the tool without having removed your battery.

4. Download the stock firmware or custom firmware that you want to install on your smartphone or tablet and then extract the file by right-clicking on it > clicking Extract from the menu so you can use it.

5. Download and extract the SP flash tool on your computer.

6. Double-click on the SP flash tool application that is found within the folder you extracted in the previous step.

7. From the SP flash tool’s interface, click on the Download tab. (click to enlarge screenshot below)

11. Connect your smartphone with the MTK chipset to the computer with the USB cable.

12. Once the connection is made, press one of the Volume buttons to help the computer detect your smartphone or tablet.

13. The flashing is completed when you get a green tick icon from the flashing tool.

You can now unplug your smartphone or tablet from the computer if you like.

That’s all.
