Huawei secret codes and hacks

Huawei phones usually do not put you in a situation where you have to start operating on your phone like a mad scientist. Nonetheless, we cannot take any chances. This is why, much like other phones, Huawei handsets have shortcuts we can use to get to the bottom of some of the short-term phone problems. These shortcuts are actually dialer codes that need to be entered through the dialer pad on your phone. It should be mentioned though that there are many Huawei secret codes and hacks to know a Huawei device in detail. Although, in this short library of codes, we only consider the most important ones, like *#*#2846579#*#* which lets you access the project menu. So, without further ado, let’s dive right in.

Dialer Codes Description
*#*#2846579#*#* Project menu
*#*#2664#*#* Touchscreen test
*#*#4636#*#* Phone Information, usage and battery
*#06# IMEI number
*#0*# Enter the service menu
*#*#34971539#*#* Detailed camera information
*#*#273282*255*663282*#*#* Backup all media files
*#*#232339#*#* Wireless LAN test
*#*#197328640*#*#* Enable test mode for service
*#*#0842#*#* Back-light test
*#*#1111#*#* FTA software version
*#*#12580*369# Complete software and hardware info
*#*#0842#*#* Vibration test
*#9090# Diagnostic configuration
*#872564# USB logging control
*#9900# System dump mode
*#301279# HSDPA/HSUPA control menu
*#7465625# View phone lock status
*#*#232338#*#* Shows WiFi MAC address
*#*#1472365#*#* or *#*#1575#*#* GPS test
*#*#232331#*#* Bluetooth test

All you have to do is dial these figures in the dialer of your Huawei phone and you are done. Other Huawei secret codes and hacks do not make it to the user’s disposal because of their redundancy and often complicated nature. But if you are still interested in knowing more about the hacks, you will have to learn programming languages like Python, Java, and master JS libraries first. That is because most of the programs installed on these devices contain important lines of code that you will have to know the semantics of before you can snoop around the hardware.

The best language to learn the programming of an android phone is Java. Once you have mastered Java, you will be able to run scripts on your own to get a phone to really listen to you. There is also the matter of memory dump which is huge in knowing the ins and outs of a device. While most of the data we delete, or a program deletes, is just pure garbage consisting of millions of unordered 0s and 1s, there are still compartments located inside the memory that can only be tapped into if a programmer knows how to obtain pointers to these dump-addresses. Once these addresses are obtained, all you have to do is find meaning out of those random binaries. The point is, even if you learn to program, it takes years to master the art of playing with a phone’s memory. On the off chance that you do master the art, it is still highly risky to twerk the various modules of a device. So, unless you are absolutely sure of what you are doing or you have a mobile engineer by your side, stick to using the aforementioned Huawei secret codes and hacks only, at your own risk of course.
