Since TWRP is still not ported to V10, so i decided to make a prerooted-boot.img.

Download Link

You can flash this boot.img to root your Honor V10 AL20C00 (6GB+128GB China Edition) on stock firmware (B132)
Usage:
0. Unlock bootloader and close find my phone.
1. Power off your phone
2. Plug your phone to computer
3. Hold power and volume down until boot into fastboot mode
4. flash this boot.img by adb ( fastboot flash ramdisk boot-root-b122.img), please download adb by yourself
5. reboot (fastboot reboot)

Your phone may reboot twice, and you'll get root access.

Declaim:
I only test this on my own phone (BKL-AL20C00), Use this on your own risk. I'm not responsible for your phone's damage.
using this tool means you accept this.

Thanks:

Hi,
Can you be a little more specific? Did you unlock your Bootloader first? When you say stock firmware B132, do you mean version 8.0.0.132 ? Thank you in advance for your reply!

Custom Recovery for V10
Hi ppl. Has a custom recovery been ported for the V10. I have managed to root my phone using the above method, but since there is no custom recovery available, I am unable to flash any mod / roms, etc.

Hi harshshah17,
Did you unlock your bootloader first? I think there are methods to flash zip files without having a custom REC. Try Flashfire apk. I've read the phone can get even more "restricted" (many features get blocked) once you root your Honor V10. Is it true in your case? Thanks in advance for your reply.

Ofcourse i have unlocked my bootloader..Its only after that, that you can root. With regard to your question, I have not experienced any sort of "restriction" with my Honor View 10 post rooting. Seems to be working just as normal. The only thing is that i am unable to install the OTA update.

The reason I am asking for a custom recovery is because i need to remove Super SU and install Magisk instead. In order to remove super SU i need to flash an uninstall zip (I know you a can remove it from the Super SU options, but that doesn't seem to be working). I can certainly use flashfire to flash the uninstall zip but then my phone will be unrooted and I wont be able to flash magisk via flashfire.

If anyone has a solution for the above, suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks!

U can remove root by flashing the stock ramdisk.img, which can be extracted from the official full-ota update.app
