Hi,

I'm looking for a solution to root Huawei Mate 20. I couldn't find much on web search about this topic.
I am also not able to find a way to install TWRP or unlock boot loader.

Any ideas?

My phone got an update about a week ago. The details didn't mention Anything about boot loader unlocking but when I checked after the update, there was the ability to unlock the bootloader.
I have already opened the developed settings since november but the bootloader unlock option was greyed out and could not be turned on. I read a post from a different thread that his phone recently got an update with the option to turn on the bootloader unlock option. I have been regularly checking for update since I read that post and so last week I finally got it. I am now able to toggle the switch but I did not finish the process because I want to make sure it doesn't cause any warranty issues. I have been a Samsung user and I am very familia with the "warranty void 0x1" issue so I always waited until my warranty was over before rooting my phone. That way everythung has been tried and tested before I take a leap. If you do get the update please post your experience in unlocking the bootloader and eventually rooting your phone.

Maybe try kingroot? If it gets the job done on the pro version it might do it here as well.

patch recovery_ramdisk.img in latest magisk manager canary build, and flash the patched_boot.img to recovery_ramdisk through fastboot - voila, you are rooted now, you just have to boot to recovery afterwards (will start to system anyway).

I could also upload my patched recovery_ramdisk.img if you want. Would work for you aswell.

Did you test it on EMUI 9.1 Roms?
Seems it doesn't work. I tried patching using the Canary build mentioned above and even used 19.0.
Neither of them worked, The end results is a bootloop.

Any ideas ?
