A detailed overview and how-to about Chimera's Huawei functions and procedures with Fastboot method
It's simple, to do any complex functions on newer models, first the phone must be in
We have a help article here, how to make the phone enter to Fastboot Mode and we have another one, how to enter to Recovery Mode. Basically, these are special boot modes for the phone and you need to press and hold special button combinations on the device to make it enter into these modes.
Factory Mode is a special state for Huawei phones, when they create "HUAWEI USB COM" serial port to communicate with the PC. This service port can be used by Chimera to communicate with the device and execute complex service functions. Here is a detailed article how to enter Factory Mode.
If the phone's software is extremely damaged, you can try Chimera's "Repair Recovery" function to try to repair it and make it boot.
With the "Load Factory Fastboot" function you can boot the phone in factory fastboot mode (no authentication required) what allows Chimera to start more complex service procedures from the fastboot itself. How to and requirements in this help article.
At this step the phone should be in Authenticated Factory Fastboot Mode and you can run any available functions what Chimera offers on the phone panel. Hurray!
If you used Test Point, the phone will be in Factory Mode only temporarily. If you do a hard reset for example, it will automatically exit the Factory Mode. In this case, you don't need to run Chimera's "Exit Factory Mode" function.
If you used Chimera's "Load Factory Fastboot", the phone will be in Factory Mode permanently, and you will need to use the "Exit Factory Mode" function to make the device exit from this mode.
This step is might needed, depending on the previous steps and what Chimera functions you used on the phone. If you want to know more about Chimera's USB Firmware Update function, click here.
