Update Notes

New features and improvements:

  • Huawei: select fastboot device manually if it wasn’t recognised after reboot
  • Huawei: select files before you start the USB Firmware Update procedure
  • Huawei: manually add a board sw file (XML) for the Load Factory Fastboot procedure and Chimera will use the xloader and fastboot files from the package
  • Chimera: file download module refactor with improved stability and less prone to errors


  • Huawei: EF file extractor bugfix
  • Chimera: fixed a bug that could cause crash when closing procedure dialogs

New Huawei features and improvements:

  • Software Brick: Load Factory Fastboot procedure now tries to put the device into factory mode without Test Point (without disassemble!)
  • Repair Boot*: as a result of software brick, after restart (hard reset) the phone remains bricked. Repair Boot can fix this but it needs factory fastboot loaded on the phone.
  • Model and Vendor/Country Change*: No need to Test Point, works on all phones, any CPU. Compatibility is not certain with latest firmware versions.

*: After Repair Boot and Model and Vendor/Country Change you MUST run USB Software Update or Repair Recovery (if available) on the device
