Hello I'm new to the gsi scene and from what I've checked on this phone is it's gsi compatible,a only,I have the bootloader unlocked through an unlock site,is there any gsi ROMs that will work on this phone?There is no root yet or twrp but if there is a working gsi I could just flash thru fastboot.Any info that anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated thanks!!!!

So long as the ROM works on a Snapdragon 636, it should be fine on the 8x max, though, I thought Huawei weren't providing bootloader unlock codes, for TWRP, anything for a SD636 should work fine, obviously you can't decrypt internal storage (actually, you can, just wipe internal storage from TWRP and encryption is gone), and magisk root should work fine.

Try this TWRP, make sure you have a backup full update ROM to install (DLoad method) if this fails, or have the stock recovery, https://forum.xda-developers.com/red...-plus-t3727162
