Saw few users not having App Twin feature on various variant of 6X on EMUI 5.0. I found this trick on Honor 5C Facebook group shared by one of the user claiming this worked for him on rooted phone. I could not test this because I already have this feature on my phones so unable to verify but someone not having this feature on EMUI 5.0 can verify and report.

This needs a rooted phone with root enabled file explorer. (Root browser or ES file manager)
Go to this path:- system/emui/lite/prop/
backup this file - local.prop (copy and paste in internal storage or somewhere)
Now edit the original file under system/emui/lite/prop/ and make below changes.
fw.max_users=1 to 2
fw.show_multiuserui=0 to 1
ro.config.hw_support_clone_app=false to true.

Save the file and Reboot the phone.
Now check in settings option just below battery for app twin.
If it works, please share the feedback so that other users can get benefit of this and if doesn't work, we will explore more option to have this.
If you face any issue, just restore the original file from backup.

Good luck.

No. I have no need for it either so I removed it as well. Just wanted to test it for you since no one had responded

For those, who were just curious to know if there will be OTA after debranding, you will get OTA after debranding without any issue. Just confirmed after debranding to BLN-L21. Got 2 updates in less than 30 minutes.

EDIT- Ignore this post. was posting in debranding guide thread but tab changed in a blink which I didnt notice.
