Huawei P20 Lite root
Just for Info

I only write, what i am doing on my Phone. What ever you do on your Phone - you doing at your own Risk !
Phone is new on Market. By my last Phone after 3 month not firmware by Huawei downloadable ! Continue to wait

Hi, this is my way to root HP20L.
My Build is ANE-LX1

By this way is UserData erased ! Make Backup bevor you go this way !

I found FHMate10Tool.
This is a "DOS-Prompt" program.
- Phone has bootloader-unlock.
- Phone is in bootloader-mode.
- I am start FHMate10Tool as admin. Use point 1 (rooting).
- 4..5 seconds Tool write "phone is rooted" ; Phone reboot; make userdata format lowlevel; reboot

- only your work: beginning by zero (configure: google ...)
- risk to break Phone is minimal.
BUT i have Backup with "dd" from factory-system and factory-recovery-ramdisk. "not tested at this moment"
(test next days, then i make append here)
My THANK'S to @aveemashfaq for inspiration :
Attention : "dd" is Powerful. Any error by typing and the consequences can be catastrophic ! Nothing for beginners !!!

Check "SuperSU". Install Titanium Backup or what ever you need.
If you wish TWRP, wait ! I am next days testing.
SuperSU is for me full-ok. If you need Magisk - look in forum.

I hope this help you & have fun !

Now we have a good Chance for TWRP(any device !)
Download this APP, install on your Phone, follow the instruction
You need from your Phone your "recovery.img" (Nougat) or "recovery_ramdis.img" (Oreo) for upload in APP and a little bit wait-time
TWRP-Builder = the best idea from last 5 year's :

Append 20181223 :
First we need BL-unlock. Huawei give us NO BL-unlock-code more. The only that's work is CD-Unlocker. Use DC-Unlocker for reed BL-unlock-code.
If DC-Unlocker not work on your Device - sorry ! Huawei is more and more "closed source" (Example : iPhone)
If you have your BL-unlock-code : unlock the BL (Attention ! This format data. On the End of BL-unlock your Device is "New". NO App's, NO Settings)
The good Way to root your Device is "Magisk". You need on your PC actual Firmware (look in Device Menu/System/Over the Device) as Full-Update Download.
Extract with HuaweiUpdateExtractor "ramdisk.img" (inside is "boot").
Copy the "ramdisk.img" to Device (Example in "Download") and the Same with "".
Install "" [MM] in Device, start MM, let it create "patched_boot.img", copy "patched_boot.img" to PC inside your ADB-Folder (Example "C:\ADB").
Open DOS-Prompt on your PC, change inside ADB-Folder (Example "cd C:\ADB").
Go with your Device in "bootloader-mode" with
- adb reboot bootloader
Flash "patched_boot.img" in your Device with
- fastboot flash ramdisk patched_boot.img
Reboot your Device with
- fastboot reboot
If Device run open MM, let MM self-update doing (it is need) and check if Device rootet (Example : Play-Store "RootChecker").
With this Way we have root AND Stock-ROM AND OTA-Updates work.
We can restore the Stock-Ramdisk (and have original Stock-ROM without root)
If you need you can TWRP install.
