# SUPPORT Huawei P8 Lite
Huawei P8 Lite - Install TWRP Recovery (V2, V3.0.0, V3.0.2), Full System Backup, Android Root (5 & 6) and Return to Recovery Stock - April 27, 2017 Updated.
(Works both on Android 5 and 6 with models L21 and L23).
(HiSilicon Kirin 620 processor.)

DO THIS UNDER YOUR RESPONSIBILITY!
IMPORTANT!
-If you are not sure to do this tutorial better do not do it, there is no hurry so quiet.

<< INSTALL RECOVERY TWRP (V2, V3.0.0, V3.0.2) >>

There are 3 methods to do it, through PC or through an App, which is very simple, here I explain how:

Method 1 - Using PC - Automatic Process:
Instructions for both versions:

1. Download INSTALAR RECOVERY TWRP (V2, V3.0.0, V3.0.2) HUAWEI P8 LITE.rar
2. Download adb-setup-1.4.3.rar
3. Unzip adb-setup-1.4.3.rar and run the program. (This is to install adb drivers and the pc can detect the terminal.)
You will see a blue console screen, type "and" or "accept" at all and close the window. If you ask them to restart the pc, do it and that's it.
4.Start your phone in Fastboot mode; Switch off the phone and press the "vol-" key and without releasing it connect it to the PC until the Fastboot screen appears.
5. Unzip "INSTALL RECOVERY TWRP (V2, V3.0.0, V3.0.2) HUAWEI P8 LITE.rar" and run the file "INSTALL RECOVERY TWRP (V2, V3.0.0, V3.0.2) HUAWEI P8 LITE.bat" and Follow the steps

It will not take more than 5 minutes, it's just a matter of pressing ENTER, that's it!

And that's it!

<< BACKUP >>

Instructions:
1. Turn off the Computer, Start in Recovery Mode by pressing the keys (Vol + & Power) at the same time without releasing until you enter the Recovery.
2. At the start, for the first time, a text will appear in English which says:
("Keep System as Read Only"
TWRP can leave unmodified the system partition to make it easier for you to take official updates.
Installing zips or performing adb operations can modify the system partition).

Select "Swipe to Allow Modifications" so they can install Zips or Roms or do other operations.

3. Select "Backup".
4. Check the "Cache, Boot, Data, System" boxes.
5. Press "Select Stogare", choose "MicroSDCard".
6. Select "Swipe to Backup" and wait for the process to finish, the time will depend on the size of the backup, please be patient.

And that's it!

<< ROOT ANDROID (5 & 6) >>

Instructions:
1. Download the files and save them in the SD card.
2. Start the phone in Recovery TWRP. (Vol + & Power)
3. Select Install, search for the file "BETA-SuperSU-v2.62-20151210170034.zip", and press "swipe to install", wait for the process to finish.
4. Return to the "Install" menu, look for the file "BETA-SuperSU-v2.66-20160103015024.zip", and press "swipe to install", wait for the process to finish.
5. Reboot the system. (The phone will reboot 2 times do not worry).

And ready! That would be all!

If for some reason you brickea the phone, install (flash) this file UPDATE-unSU.zip, this will solve the problem.

I just want to remind everyone at this point, that we have TWRP 3.1.0-1, which is newer and supports backup of more important partitions. You should consider looking at the newer version, because newer most of the times means better.
The TWRP 3.1.0-1 Thread is located under Original Android Development.
Edit: No offense @JohnMillerDev7 Sharing your work over here is always awesome. The more support this phone gets, the better. Everyone needs to decide their self what they want to install, but they should know what is available. Your Tutorials are helpful for everyone that never installed TWRP.
You also should consider to update your links to newer SuperSU or even consider using magisk, so users will be able to pass safety net and hide root to various apps like PokemonGO or Super Mario Run.

@JohnMillerDev7:
I think it's better that you update your guide:
install custom recovery: remove method 2, you need root and generally to have root you already had custom recovery
add something like "update/re-install recovery (after root)" with flashify (a.e. from 2 to 3.0.2 ot to 3.1.0-1)
