Step 1
Make a Huawei ID at the following

Step 2

Log in and fill out the details needed
https://goo.gl/VEKvXY

How to get the product identification code ?
In the phone's dial-up interface, enter * # * # 1357946 # * # *

What you will need:


Step 3
Now that you have your unlock code go to about phone in settings and click the build number until it tells you that you are a developer. Then go back once and select developer options and look for usb debugging and turn it on.

Step 4
Enable Developer settings by going to Settings > about phone and click build number until it says you are a developer.
Once that is done go back to the main settings and go to developer settings and enable OEM unlock.

Step 5
I am going to assume you have adb and fastboot installed on your computer, but if not go to this thread to install it.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=48915118

Step 6

Plug your device into the computer and authorize your device key so adb will work, then type the following commands:
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
Once it boots into the bootloader do the following command
Code:
fastboot oem unlock 2062712452147427
Where numbers are put what you got from the website keep in mind it will wipe your data so if you have any personal data back it up first.

Step 7
Boot up the phone and set it up

Step 8
Download the twrp recovery image

Step 9
Boot back into the bootloader by typing the following
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
Step 10
Flash the recovery with the following command:
Code:
fastboot flash recovery twrp_kiwi.img
Step 11
Once it finishes type the following
Code:
fastboot reboot
If you want root unhide this and follow the steps:
Step 11
Download SuperSU zip
http://download.chainfire.eu/897/Sup...0121175247.zip

Step 12
Boot into recovery by typing the following:
Code:
adb reboot recovery
Step 13
Flash SuperSu and enjoy your rooted Honor 5x


Thanks to all of the following for getting this working:

Warning!

Don't try to install xposed on your stock rooted EMUI rom.
It won't work
The system won't boot
You'll have to recover from a nandroid backup
You'll have to reinstall TWRP
That is NOT TWRP's fault
My personal, unverified, guess is that Huawei is writing to recovery in an attempt to, well, recover, when it detects a system fault

I do not think the 14 day rule is currently enforced for US devices. I obtained my code right away on day 1 of getting a new device.

Not needed anymore


We have twrp in a working state now so this root method will not be needed anymore and i am converting it to a twrp thread.

You sir...are the man!!! TWRP, Root and a kernel in only a few days! This is such an important step and barrier. I wish I had more knowledge to help more. Thank you for all you have accomplished.

Where do i get the adb drivers for this device. i ran the adb tool in the first link and installed the drivers but when i plug the phone in, it says drivers not installed. Did you install something from honor to get them?

I still can't get adb on my Windows 10 64bits machines. I have run USB Linux on my Windows 10 before to inject root on my LG G4 and G flex 2. Will look into it again.

Edit... I got the adb installed(Youtube my friend) and have the unlock code from Huawei. I had booted into fastboot. Geeee so excited.. Will install TWRP and root tomorrow. Its the fastest to have root and TWRP ever install on a brand new phone. I have the LG G4 , its took months to get root and bootloader still locked.
Thanks guys!

Awesome! I get mine tomorrow. Paid for one day shipping, and was hoping to unlock and root on day one if available.

I think we also want to thank Huawei for getting us test units early to help make this possible so quickly.
