I own a
Huawei MediaPad M2 10.0 (M2-01AL). It was rooted since long.
I wanted to try to install Magisk, so I did it from Magisk Manager. I don't exactly remember what I exactly did, but eventually I screw up the tablet entirely that it entered a boot loop at the Huawei logo.
I just want to reflash it from stock, or something that boots
I have tried several fastboot flashing, but eventually got my hands, thanks to XDA, on what look like official stock firmwares by Huawei. File names:
These archives contain the magic
update.app to be put into SD card and then boot the tablet with all keys pressed.
The firmware flashes the entire contents of the archive into the ROM. However such a flashing stops at around 90% with a generic failure message and request to reboot.
The tablet won't boot.
This is entirely a software problem with the device.
Also tried extracting the .img from the .app with Huawei Extractor and flashing
system via fastboot, no result. Phone is still unlocked and FRP is unlocked, as the bootloader reports. I can flash
recovery successfully, but I haven't yet found an English TWRP, only luck Chinese and Russian.
Question is: how do I restore this tablet to at least a bootable state? I would like to try this alone before going to a repair shop in my city, there are plenties of it.
I have successfully installed TWRP in a language I understand. I can see that the
system partition is damaged because TWRP, on reboot, says that no OS is installed. This is a first step. I also reflashed stock
boot just to make sure, because I found that in order to uninstall Magisk one has to flash the backup Magisk makes. Unfortunately I had no time to fetch that backup, I was too lazy. Anyway I extracted
system from the
update.app and flashed it via fastboot. No result, the tablet is still in boot loop
