The list of apps in your screenshot includes "Rayman Jungle Run". This doesn't have any reason to send SMS messages, and the genuine game listed on Google Play doesn't require that permission. It seems likely that you've been taken in by a fake or trojan that pretends to be the game you wanted, but in fact sends SMS to premium numbers behind your back, to ...

Drivers are not distributed as standalone package in order to increase market penetration of the HiSuite software. It's quite popular marketing strategy: you can get what you want only in bundle with something you don't actually want, but need to get the primary item is big enough to make you buckle in and get the whole package. Nevertheless, you can ...

That's a notification originating from the Data Saver feature in Huawei ROMs (EMUI 5.0). Data saver helps to reduce data usage by preventing background apps from sending or receiving data and limiting the data access frequency of running apps. When data saver is active, a data icon with a leaf will appear in the status bar. This may prevent users from ...

I have owned a Huawei phone (Honor 6) until recently so I can speak from personal experience. Protected apps is a battery saving feature (like stamina mode in Sony phones). Apps not selected as protected apps will stop working once the screen is off and a wait duration. I discovered this when a voice recording app would stop recording after an hour of ...

I found the problematical app. This is related to Huawei's app. After searching/tracing the number, I found that the number the SMS was sent to was Huawei Server number. It will work like this: When you put SIM card for the first time, it will auto send an SMS to that number for registering the start of warranty period. But in my case, I am facing network ...

Your device doesn't have an Armv7 processor. It has an Armv6. You can confirm this by attempting to download apps like Temple Run & Firefox from the market - these all need Armv7 processors. You can also install Device Info to check it yourself, it gives you detailed information. Also, according to GSM Arena your processor is clocked to 600Mhz - the ...

Ex Honor 6 user Confirmed. There is no other way except installing Hi Suite or risking unknown driver. Tried unsuccessfully with several trusted universal drivers This is my conclusion after I searched in several forums like XDA, Huawei forums ( trawling is a problem as they are in Chinese and one had to depend on Google translate) and Facebook sites of ...

You can use a USB cable and buy a USB mouse so that you can use that [a mouse] instead of touch screen. Check out a USB adapter for Android that fits your budget [and make sure it's compatible with your device] and purchase it.

The path in this answer didn't work, guess it is not the true path. Here is my own post at XDA forum showing a script running using a macro. The path according to what worked for me and steps involved are explained. It shows a macro based implementation allows the path which works for me. I am thankful for the earlier post that pointed this file. To ...

When you start the factory reset in the settings it just runs recovery which the actual resetting is done by. Normally, recovery just wipes everything in /data and /cache in all (and /sdcard in most of) phones, since that is all a non-root user can modify. So a factory reset is not a fresh install of the ROM. It is just the wiping process of every made-by-...

I was looking for those lately, sorry for Golden Shovel award, but if I found this thread then maybe someone else will find this helpful. Download installer for this HiSuite. Unpack it, like archive (I use 7-zip). It asks for file replace, just 'yes' it (it is because installer format, don't worry). If you order your Windows to look for driver inside this ...

There are 2 things to keep in mind: Is your grandma actually going into her phone's contacts to add people, or is she going into the Viber app to add people? When creating contacts, my phone asks me WHERE to store the contacts. In my case, I have 2 options: one the SIM card, or on my Google account. She may have a 3rd option (Viber). She should select one ...

Install GPS Status & Toolbox. Then go to the app's settings > gps sensors > auto-download AGPS data, and set it to whatever you like. It also has a Pro key, which unlocks other features. The main goal for the application is to assist you and all the other applications on your device to get a GPS lock as fast as possible. It is much better to ...

If the picture was not actually taken, you cannot recover it. Your phone doesn't record what's done on the camera screen, unless you actually record a video or take a picture. If it would be recording the whole time, that would take all your phone's memory and it would probably be against some privacy laws. The above is assuming that you didn't download a ...

There are two types of bootloader locks in Huawei devices: FB Lock and USER Lock. USER Lock restricts the standard partitions like system, data, recovery, kernel etc, but not the critical bootloader-partitions which I don't remember the names of. (So you can't edit them even if you perform a USER Unlock) The USER Lock is what requires the bootloader unlock ...

No, it not because of Trump. Why? Because Huawei was granted 90 days during which it will still continue to support equipment. The Trump administration is working to ban Huawei products from the US market and ban US companies from supplying the Chinese company with software and components. The move will have wide-ranging consequences for Huawei's ...

As @saurin said, it is due to a bug, and they released update. Here is snapshot of reply email from Huawei with instructions.

This may be a late response but after finding the answer I thought I should publish it. If you have a Huawei phone that's been set up for the Chinese market then you'll find you cannot simply add a Google account. First, using Huawei's own application manager, find Google's Play Store and install it. Once installed, use it to install Google's own YouTube app....

It sounds like your ROM doesn't properly reset settings when the sdcard is re-enabled (since it obviously becomes unavailable to the OS when using USB Mass Storage). Unfortunately, this is likely an issue with your ROM and I don't think there is a likely setting that would fix it. However, in Android 3.0, Google added MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) support ...

Same way as on any other Android device: go to the Android App Store of your choice (Google Play, AppBrain, whatever) and search for "korean keyboard" (currently, 376 results) install the one you find suiting your needs There are several keyboards shipping with Korean language packs, so you might as well decide picking one of those. This might possibly ...

I had the very same problem for like 4 months. And finally, in one day, the problem was solved. Follow these steps: Switch off the device. Press power button + Volume up button until the device is switched on (followed by a small vibration). As soon as the device is switched on, let go of the power switch but keep pressing the volume up button. After a ...

Clicking 7 times on the Build Number (found under About Phone) will give you Developer privileges. This must be a feature to prevent kids or people who don't know what they are doing from enabling the Developer Mode. I can confirm this works for the Huawei 560 as well.

I can find charger-related data at /sys/class/hw_power/charger/charge_data. Current can probably be set using cin_limit knob (it does not apply immediately, I need to wait for several seconds. Current is in mA and is probably rounded somehow). Charger can be turned off immediately using echo 0 > enable_charger.

This is based entirely off @Firelord's comment, with some modifications, so all credits go to him. First things first, the stock ROM is not as such stored anywhere on device in a form which the device can use to recover itself in case of some catastrophic software failure, such as a botched OTA. Now, as to how stock ROMs are stored for distribution, that ...

I have managed to solve my problem. It seems that, due to some reason, my USB port's power limit was exceeded and it froze itself. I'm not fully sure what caused this to occur, but after disconnecting everything and resetting my USB ports it somehow worked again.. The following message occured after trying a few USB ports: I disconnected my phone and ...

I'll now guide you through the procedure of writing a custom flashable ZIP, for the purpose of renaming your sh.old.bak. To begin, create the following tree of folders: /META-INF/com/google/android Once you created them, move to the android folder, and create the following new files. Make sure that they don't have any extension at their end: updater-...

The Chinese text roughly says, The system has detected a corrupted internal storage, please choose from the following operations: Factory reset Reboot to this interface At this point your best bet is to choose Factory reset (wiping your data in the process), click the confirm button down-right, and hope it does its job. If it doesn't, the ...
