If you're in the USA, TWRP and root are available for you here - but only if you have the KIW-L24 model:

[TWRP] for KIW-L24 USA (kiwi)

^^ That recovery is not recommended or tested for any version other than KIW-L24 as of February 10, 2016.

So here's the situation:
  • We may be able to support other versions for international users
  • We make no promises
  • We are providing a tool and instructions for you to give us the information we need about your version
  • We make no promises
  • You MUST give the information exactly as we request
  • No personal information is being gathered - none
  • We've made it as easy as possible, you don't have to be an expert
  • We may have to come back and ask you for more information
  • We make no promises
  • But we are willing to try if you want to help

Instructions:
  1. Download the attached zip file and unzip it on your phone - ES File Explorer or equivalent is fine
  2. Run the script: find-honor.sh
  3. Copy the contents of /sdcard/found-honor.txt to http://hastebin.com
  4. Post the link to your hastebin here in the thread
  5. DO NOT post the output here - we're not going to manage to that - only post your hastebin.com link, ok

You may run the script however you like:
  • adb shell or Terminal Emulator
  • or just use SH Script Runner (instructions on that will come later in the thread)

Shell/terminal instructions:
  • cd to the folder where you unzipped the script
  • Execute the following command:
  • source find-honor.txt

How to upload:
  • Go to the found-honor.txt file in your file browser
  • /sdcard, /storage/emulated/0 and Internal Storage all mean the same thing on your phone
  • Open, select all, copy
  • Paste and save to hastebin.com
  • Pictures follow, in my example I use the built-in Files app
  • Go to the internal storage, tap on find-honor.txt
  • OK to open Just Once with HTMLViewer
  • Long press any word to get menu on bottom
  • Select all, then copy
  • Goto http://hastebin.com and paste
  • Find the disk image in the upper right corner to save
  • Post the link
  • Your output will look similar to http://hastebin.com/norufikubu.avrasm

If you're curious to see the how the information is being gathered:

Code:
#!/system/bin/sh
#
# Find honor 5X properties for recovery exploration
# EarlyMon 2016/02/08

TARG=/sdcard/found-honor.txt

getprop | grep -i ro.build.product > $TARG
echo "" >> $TARG

grep -i msm /system/build.prop  >> $TARG
echo "" >> $TARG

cat /proc/meminfo | grep -i memtotal >> $TARG
echo "" >> $TARG

cat /proc/partitions >> $TARG
echo "" >> $TARG

cd /sys/dev/block
for i in 179:*
do
  cat $i/uevent | grep NAME >> $TARG
  echo "" >> $TARG
done
cd - > /dev/null

df >> $TARG 2> /dev/null
echo "" >> $TARG

cat /proc/self/mountinfo >> $TARG
echo "" >> $TARG

cat /system/build.prop >> $TARG

echo ""
echo "Copy the contents of"
echo ""
echo "$TARG"
echo ""
echo "to hastebin.com"
echo ""
echo "Post the hastebin.com link in the thread."


Remember -

ONLY POST YOUR DATA LINK, LIKE THIS:

You can see from my sample link that nothing personal is being gathered.

@WidosFTW or @racing2410

Per suggestions from the team (shm and Ncypt3d) after reviewing your data, we've decided to update the script because we don't want to take the chance relying on the honor website specs.

Please refer to the following picture from the app CPU-X in the Play Store:

The top of yours ought to be similar and say MSM 8939 HUAWEI KIW-L21 (where mine says L23).

If there is any doubt, please erase the old find-honor.sh on your phone, get the new copy from the OP, and repeat the process for us.

Many thanks!

I'm on the US version but still appreciate that you're working on our international brothers and sisters 5xs. So I must say....this sounds "very promising "! Sorry I couldn't help it.
