Huawei B525 4G router: new firmware – no more changing DNS server manually?

Recently I upgraded my Huawei B525s-23a 4G router’s firmware (new software version 81.191.13.00.1134, Web UI version 81.100.31.02.1134) only to find out the trick to change DNS servers has stopped working:

No more DNS settings for you

After brief inspection with browser’s developer console, worry not, DNS settings are still here (hidden of course). To show the settings navigate to Router -> DHCP, press F12 and enter this into developer’s console:

$('#dhcp_dns').show();

Press enter, and the settings are back:

Change DNS server on your Huawei B525 again!

Tested with Firefox, Chrome and Chromium based Edge.

    Hi,
    Good news, have the same problem. I have never used developer tools or console. Have tried adding the line to unhide the DNS settings bot can’t get it to work. Would you please give more detailed instructions on how to enter that line in the console? Thanks.
    Regards
