      Huawei may changed the url, but you can go to Huawei’s support page and search your device and find latest firmware.

        more problems, either the file verification failed or the installation progress is stuck at 5% for hours. 12 hours is the maximum i’ve waited.

      Just unrooting the phone will not remove signs of root from your device. You need to install factory firmware on it
