Hi mates

For all those who, like me, have a lot of trouble to root their Mate 8.
I've successful to root my phone from the B560.


Last tuto (FINAL):
* Have the B560 firmware (or above - ask me for that) without no changes for Huawei Mate 8 with Nougat firmware - for the others devices, ASK ME!!!
* This Boot_Insecure_BXXX_Fix-adb_dm-verity-v2.img or v3- 5 versions for the moment: B560 - B580 - B581 - B582 - B585 - B588- B590- B592- B594- B595- B596. For another kernel, ASK ME!
* Have this TWRP 3.1.0-x - or this one (following the update)
* Have this SuperSU-v2.xx-EMUI5.0.zip on your external sdcard for supersu Chainfire - method 1
* Have the PHH superuser.zip on your external sdcard for PHH superuser - method 2

1 - Easy way to root with supersu Chainfire:
  1. Install the TWRP via adb, or SRKtools or still TWRP if you already have it
  2. Install the new_Insecure_BXXX_dm-verity-v2.img or v3 via adb
  3. Reboot to the recovery
  4. Install SuperSU-v2.xx-EMUI5.0.zip from TWRP
  5. Reboot system

2 - Easy way to root with PHH superuser:
  1. Install the TWRP via adb, or SRKtools or still TWRP if you already have it
  2. Install the new_Insecure_BXXX_dm-verity-v2.img or v3 via adb
  3. Reboot to the recovery
  4. Install PHH superuser.zip from TWRP
  5. Reboot system
  6. Install PHH superuser app via PlayStore (if necessary, you had to make it with previous version)

Devices with which it works:
Misc:
  • It's certainly possible to root others Huawei models . For them, send me the stock boot.img of your current firmware in order that I make an insecure boot Fix-adb dm-verity for your device.
  • All apps requiring root works well with this method.
  • Following a problem with access to developer options, a update was made that now makes us to v3.

Credits:
  • ajsmsg78 - who explained me how to create the insecure boot
  • jac10000 - who helped me to create the insecure boot Fix-adb dm-verity
  • Chainfire for supersu
  • phhusson for PHH superuser

Report me if it works fine for you! I'll add you in the OP post.
Report me on which firmware you used my method.



Changes:
Code:
Boot_Insecure_BXXX_Fix-adb_dm-verity-v2.img
* fixes issue adb doesn't work

Boot_Insecure_BXXX_Fix-adb_dm-verity.img
* based on the insecure boot
* remove the boot checking of dm-verity for a better rooting
* authorize read/ write on the partitions
Thanks!

Thank you!
Thank you for your hard work. I will try it immediately, downloading everything I need now.

Will report back when I have done it

Question:
If I am already on official OTA B560, can I skip these steps?

16. Install update_data_full_hw_eu.zip - Don't reboot

@dexz 's method arranged by me

to avoid to format data again


Only use if you are in the situation below... otherwise follow this method

Good news for those who are in my situation with my method. The @dexz 's method works fine but force again to format data... personnally I had more than tired to format data. So I made this....

You are with the semi rooted B560 or other perhaps
You have Chainfire supersu
You have decrypted your data
You have a Decrypted data boot and you wanted to keep it
Put my Decrypted data boot on the external SD
  1. Phone is on... then unroot it fully with Chainfire supersu in its settings - it asks you to restore the boot.img, I pushed "NO" because I had a doubt if I still had it, in addition it will install again in this tuto
  2. Reboot in TWRP (frd-twrp like @dexz 's tuto)
  3. Install Decrypted data boot
  4. Wipe Dalvik & cache - Strongly advised after to have flashed the boot, it doesn't eat some bread
  5. Install superuser_noverify_nocrypt.zip
  6. Reboot to system - It will take about 3-5mins or less, it's due to the wipe Dalvik & Cache
  7. Go to playstore and Install phh's SuperUser app

And like me, you are fully rooted... Again thanks to @dexz for his method! The one above isn't more complicate and avoid to format again the data if you are in my situation.

Another question, last one I promise.

You did not mention this in the thread, not that I saw at least.
Do I need to unlock my bootloader?

Perhaps it will work only with update data... I know someone has already rooted his phone like that (here).
