I get asked a lot how I rooted my Huawei Honor Note 8 so I thought I'd do a basic how to from memory on how I did it. It's relatively easy to do.

You'll need your phone's bootloader unlocked.
The files from Huawei's forums http://club.huawei.com/thread-10828573-1-1.html or https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bwy...ew?usp=sharing
The app is in chinese but has some english on the buttons.

To unlock bootloader:
Got bootloader unlock code with the app on the playstore "DC Huawei Bootloader Codes" (took about 8 hours to get)
Enable USB debugging on the phone & connect it to the computer.
Unlock the bootloader with the program downloaded. Use the first button on the first tab labeled bootloader. Put in unlock code in the pop up box & click ok.

To root:
Enable USB debugging on the phone & connect it to the computer.
Flash the recovery_twrp.img file with the program downloaded. Use the 2nd button on the first tab labeled recovery.
To change twrp into english, click on the 3rd down 2nd row button & then click on the globe button. The globe is really hard to hit! Keep trying till you get it Then select English.
Install SuperSU with TWRP
Should now be rooted!

I did not backup anything.

I have a question, or making a root and unlock the bootloader is associated with a full reset your data and settings that can be done root without losing data?

Yuppers.. not trusted cuz ya unlocked it.

Should be volume up & power. You can also do it with the app. The 2nd tab... recovery. Will boot it into recovery too.

You have to click the globe button on the far right to get to the language. It's a bitch to hit! BTW... TWRP has reverted back to chinese a few time now for some reason on mine. It's kind of annoying considering how hard it is to hit that one button.

Questions about the root process
1) why do you need the unlock code?
2) Where can I find SuperSU for honor note 8? Can someone please provide a link?
3) Has anyone succeeded rooting?

Thanks in advance for the answers.

I'm not sure why it would be boot looping. I'd flash it again. Might even try a factory reset before flashing too. You're the first I've heard of with that problem. Make sure you're on version 22.
