Well we had root for a while and it's been great! But we loose safetynet goodies (this is individual) and the ease to use great mods without messing with the system partition.

Don't worry this is no more needed!

Before following this procedure make sure to back up everything you want to save because we gonna wipe data partition!

Edit the twrp files are slightly modified to suite honor 8 pros partition layout. As they where originally for mate 9 it had to be done.

Installation instructions.

1.backup everything you want to save on your internal storage.

2. Download https://mega.nz/#F!mwJVAaaR!Nh_NZ8jCmp76VGVWC-WPbg and extract it on your external storage.

3. Extract magisk-root.zip and flash twrp-magisk-H8P.img using fastboot using this command: fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk twrp-magisk-H8P.img

4. Flash fstab-decrypt.zip which will replace fstab in vendor/etc/

5. FORMAT DATA in twrp.

6. (optional) boot system and set everything up.

7. Reboot to recovery and flash Magisk.zip

8. Wait and see

UPDATE INSTRUCTIONS

Open Magisk manager settings
Press update channel > custom and enter

You'll get latest Magisk for huawei devices

Q/A

Safetynet doesn't pass! You lied!

It does but magisk hide is being disabled on boot. Just trigger the Magisk hide and safetynet will pass.

Does it work on encrypted devices?
NO as of now it doesn't. It doesn't patch the ramdisk properly. But it's being worked on!

Its working and passes safetynet too. How can I again encrypt my device? I can't able to access my internal files from mobile or PC.

Hey man. I tried rooting and it worked. But selinux stays on enforcing and I can't get Magisk modules to work. Any workaround?

Simply by flashing https://mega.nz/#!zp4wgQDL!ZRj0MFdpZ...fxWZaJ3o3dxXe8

It's the original file

Unfortunately this is disabled within kernel so we'd have to wait for a custom kernel.

It looks like you only need to wipe data before installing Magisk and not actually decrypt. So thus who want to use Magisk with encryption

Wipe data/factory reset in twp should do it and install Magisk after wipe .

At least it worked on aosp

Can anyone try to install without actually decrypt?

Method would be

1. Wipe data factory reset

2.flash Magisk

This worked on aosp so should work on emui too

recovery partition name has changed in oreo.
command is "fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk ***.img"

Thanks for such quick solutions. Works perfectly. Passes safetynet too. Just 1 issue for me - the selinux mode is stuck on enforcing.
I need permissive selinux mode to run Root Call Blocker. I would appreciate it if you could fix it.

We must use a custom kernel for it now so it seems. As Huawei disabled it by default.
