Huawei E589 Mobile Router Firmware Download

There are a lot of questions about downloading Huawei E589 firmware at many discussion boards. Here we found some firmware for your Huawei E589 LTE pocket wifi from xda-developers forum, hope this article could help you.

Huawei Firmware Numbering System Definition

At first, let's have a look at how Huawei classify their firmware versions/revisions? Take this firmware 11.433.13.00.01 for example. It consists of 5 sets of numbers. These can be described as:

"11"    - is for Qualcomm based devices (23 for HiSilicon)
"433"   - is the firmware Build version:
          Same HW platforms generally use the same builds. For example:
          All MDM9200-based modules: E392u, E397u, E398u, EM920u, EM930u etc. 
"13"    - is the Debug version and prefixed by "D" in FW updates. 
"00"    - probably Service Pack version and prefixed by "SP" in FW updates. 
"01"    - Network Operator / Carrier Customization. ("00" = No customization.)
Similarly for firmware updates. For example: HUAWEI_E589u-12_V100R001B433D15SP02C260_Finland (Elisa)_05021CTE.zip Just add "Version" after each:
V = Version, R = Release, B = Build, D = Debug , SP = Service Pack, C = Customization

Huawei Carrier Customization Codes

The firmware distributed by Huawei for use on their 3G/4G mobile wifi routers (MiFi) and dongles, are usually customized by each of the mobile service provider that sell them. Here we attempt to list all the customization codes used by Huawei, so that we can better understand the many variations that are purely firmware dependent versus hardware dependent.
According to belief, a customization code of "00" refer to no-customization, in other words it should be original "vanilla" Huawei firmware.
So far we have:
