Solution in this case is to delete the current software file but you will need to access diagnose mode for achieving this. Guide as below:


Enter diagnosis view, return user view with Ctrl+Z.                             

Info: The diagnosis view is used to debug system hardware and software. Misuse o

f certain commands in this view may affect system performance. Therefore, use th

ese commands with the guidance of Huawei engineers.
