Update notes:

Due to version restrictions, you first need to upgrade to version first. Otherwise, you won’t receive the latest update. During the beta testing, you can enable a user experience improvement plan, which will help developers to improve the software.

This update won’t erase your phone’s data but it is still recommended that you back up all important data to your PC or cloud before downloading the latest version, and confirm that the backup content is complete.

To be mentioned, some third-party mobile apps may not be compatible with HarmonyOS. Therefore, it is recommended that you try to update the apps to the latest version via AppGallery.

Following the upgrade, the phone may produce heat, lag, or slow charging. This is caused by some self-optimization and adaptation actions performed by the system after the upgrade. Be assured that it will recover by itself after some time.

Your phone needs to have 8GB of internal storage and the installation package will be automatically deleted after the update without taking up storage space.

This update also supports version rollback, which can be rolled back to the official stable version of HarmonyOS 2 through Huawei HiSuite (Note: Some government and enterprise customized versions cannot be rolled back to the mobile assistant due to special customization, please upgrade carefully).

The rollback operation will erase all data, please backup all important data to the PC before rollback or the cloud, and confirm that the backup content is complete and valid.

After the rollback upgrade is completed, the phone will restart. Please wait patiently for about 10 minutes. After the rollback is successful, the default theme of HarmonyOS 2 will be displayed on the home screen of the phone.
