This is only for Honor 8 (FRD)
OpenKirin presents unofficial TWRP for stock EMUI 5.x with decryption support. Intended for usage on stock emui 5.x in combination with unlocked bootloader and modded boot image with disabled dm-verity (depending on what you want to do).
WARNING: since 3.1.0-2 update we've enabled image flashing to special partitions - not just /recovery or /boot partition. That means your device could be bricked in a few seconds if you do not pay attention or don't know what you're doing. (Noobs please stay away out of this section!)
1. Enter fastboot mode on unlocked device 2. flash recovery using the following command: fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.1.1-1-frd.img 3. reboot to recovery!
1. Official SuperSU (not just 2.82+) 1. Ensure you are running stock kernel from b380+ 2. Tick the option "Keep vendor partition mounted" inside OpenKirin Settings 3. download and install official SuperSU 4. Enjoy! 2. Custom SuperSU 1. Make sure the device running stock EMUI 5.x boot.img 2. flash this modded SuperSU 2.79: download here 3. enjoy root :) NOTE: this is for every device (except kirin 960 based) running emui 5.x without loop support. 3. Magisk 1. ensure you are running a kernel from b380 or later 2. flash magisk 3. enjoy root & safetynet (read note) NOTE: Magisk Hide is a known problem on Huawei/Honor devices. Make sure you are not rebooting/turning off your device with Magisk Hide enabled! You may face a broken fingerprint scanner, do not worry, simply disable magisk hide and reboot - fps works again!
