Instead of using the twrp tool provided. Is it safe to flash official TWRP image directly in bootloader mode?

I am running Android 7.0 with EMUI 5.0 on my 6X, but logically this recovery doesnt work cause its for MM. So i tried this https://forum.xda-developers.com/hua...at-03-t3511937 recovery from P9 Lite forums, and it boots but i cant mount storage there. Would it be possible for u to update this TWRP to Nougat for us? If u need any files from the Nougat build reach me out or if you want to know how i installed it

There is this website which lists all of the huawei updates. i downloaded the newest for our device there and installed the update.app (though i struggled a bit). but now i have a rooted emui 5.0 android 7.0 with system r/w and my only problem is that the recovery cant mount storage
