I have installed this update today and used it for few hours as of now. EMUI 4.0 Interface looks much better than EMUI 3.0. Apps launching speed is noticeably faster. But it is still EMUI.

  • I have a lot of trouble with updating my phone ( Model: Honor 4x Che-L04, OS: Kit Kat) to Android 6.0. I have downloaded the Android 6.0 file and stored the dload folder on SD card. I tried to update it through manual update (local update). However, It was not successful as it promoted an error that says “software update failed and get help online at http://www.emui.com“.
    Please help me to get it fixed and update the latest Android 6.0 on my phone.

        • Hi,please do factory reset your phone before updating. If still does not works, you can try to format your SD card and place update file in dload folder. If it does not works. First you have to update your phone to lollipop 5.1.1, only then you can update your phone to marshmallow 6.0. If you still face problem, feel free to contact me.
