Here is TWRP for the Mate 8. You must have an unlocked bootloader to flash this. After you flash this then you can root by flashing SuperSU after booting into TWRP. When installing a ROM for the first time you must go into TWRP and go to Wipe, then Format Data and do a format or else your internal storage will not be recognized.



-------------EMUI 4.1-------------
TWRP 3.0.2 Black & Blue:

-------------EMUI 4.0-------------
TWRP 3.0.2 Black & Blue:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5I...ew?usp=sharing

TWRP 2.8.7.0:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5I...ew?usp=sharing



Changelogs:
4-05-16: Updated to TWRP 3.0.2 Multi Language and changed some colors. Now TWRP will tell you if your internal storage is encrypted.
4-06-16: Added dark TWRP. Bug: when installing a rom the progress bar doesn't show anything. Don't worry, it still works.
4-09-16: Progress bar partially working in the Black & Blue version
5-06-16: TWRP for EMUI 4.1. Multilanguage. You can now mount through TWRP and copy files from your computer to the phone. Default language set to English. Blue themed.
5-22-16: Added themed TWRP Black & Blue to the OP. Based off of the latest twrp.


**On first screen tap the right most button, second from the bottom (Settings) then tap on the globe icon at the top right and choose your language. Then it will stay in that language**
** When formatting data in TWRP after updating to B321 it will take about ten minutes. Let it finish**

thx for posting this, much appreciated

one of the bugs ive found with the mate 8 version is that the screen brightness cant really be adjusted. at some point it goes pretty dark and then just stay that way. a bit annoying but u can still work properly with it btw, the twrp themes from xda work like a charm

On my Mate 8 in TWRP I cannot mount or backup data no matter what I try. Do you have the same issue? I think we need a better build of TWRP. I'm in the process of making a stock debloated ROM but the TWRP problems are driving me crazy. EDIT: Going to Wipe, Advanced Wipe and Format Data fixed the issue. Now I can install from the internal memory and my data partition is working in TWRP.

Me too, but doing that seems to fix the problem any time TWRP doesn't see my Internal Storage. The brightness bug is an issue although not a major one. It seems that after you let the screen time out then turn it back on the brightness is a lot higher.

use the tool dc unlocker in order to read out the bootloader code for your specific device. ull need to pay 4€ to use that function, everything else is explained in detail on the website and in the tool itself for huawei phones.
