If the kernel is based on B360 then it should work with N and not MM. The Lineage rom right now is using the stock N kernel with no changes to it. They are not building a N kernel inline with Lineage as there's no source code out for it.

I guess my question is, would it be possible to flash Lineage, and then flash this kernel over it?

@HassanMirza01 -- kernel works and PHH SU works and can R/W /system/. One issue I noticed however is that "Revoke USB Debugging Authorizations" has disappeared from my Developer menu. On the Honor 8 with Nougat I frequently have to revoke and reset authorizations to get it to work properly. I was able to get it working again by flashing the stock boot and rooting with the linked zip.

Magisk, however, crashes the phone on installation attempt, even with SELinux set to permissive. It causes a reboot when 'setting up the environment' either through Magisk Manager or TWRP. It appears that the P9 Lite kernel must have proper loop support whereas the Honor 8 still doesn't even with tweaks. It was speculated that since on the P9 Lite Magisk wouldn't work on Nougat, but on the P9 Lite after flashing this kernel and flashing Magisk in permissive SELinux mode, it installed successfully, that a similar path might work on the Honor 8. Then again, perhaps something is workable.

Either way, thanks for looking into this. :good:

Unfortunately Recovery crashes before it can write what happened to the log. That kernel crash log up above is the closest info we can probably get.

I attached the TWRP log though anyway.
Also another log, this one shows the beginning stages of the flash and where the crash happens. (Search Magisk in the text file)
