Hello everyone,
First of all, sorry to bother you with naive requests, but I'd love to learn more about rooting my phone.
So here is my situation: I have a Huawei P8 Lite (ALE-L21) with european firmware. It is pre-2017, so Android 6.0 and EMUI 4.0.3 running.

I successfully did the following actions yesterday, following instructions here https://rootmygalaxy.net/root-huawei...ow-6-0-update/ and here https://forum.xda-developers.com/p8l...d-6-0-t3307686
- Unlocked Bootloader
- Installed TWRP v3
Fortunately, I did a full system backup from TWRP (7200MB!), and full backup of media, apps, etc... prior to everything thanks to HiSuite.
I then downloaded SuperSU from https://forum.xda-developers.com/app...-mode-t3286120. I got the v2.82, yet the tutorials said to use v2.64?
Any way, I thought this would work too... Then:
- I did Wipe > Swipe to a factory reset
- I flashed SuperSU v2.82 with TWRP
- I wiped cache/Dalvik as instructed
Unfortunately, and that is what I was afraid about: bootloop occured. I tried everything (wipe Dalvik cache, /cache, /data, whatnot) in TWRP, but it didn't cured the bootloop (or I didn't wait enough, 2min each time...)
This is where I did a full restore from TWRP (7200MB, 45min of pure anxiety) giving me a fresh working device, but of course not rooted.

So my questions are then: is this version of SuperSU incompatible with my device, thus bricking it? Where could I find a zip to flash safely without fear of having the cure another bootloop or restoring eveything?

Thank you in advance!

I don't have this device but, I believe that one or more of the following threads should be helpful for what you are looking for and don't be afraid to ask for some member guidance within one of them too.

UPDATE:
Hi, for anyone wishing for help, I successfully rooted my device by flashing Magisk v16.0 via TWRP. With Magisk Manager, everything works like a charm.
And it seems that the SuperSU zip that I flashed caused a bootloop due to the system mode. So if you follow the tutorials saying to flash SuperSU-XXX-SYSTEMMODE.zip, it will very likely not work on this device.
