Hello guys , [ UPDATE ROOT for EMUI 9.1.0.210 .. at bottom ... there are some minor changes]

been reading here and there for a working root but didn't work and my worries to get phone locked / bricked / bootloop
was increasing at any failed test !
THIS method WILL WORK i tested it today and worked ! I'm gonna upload also my magisk recovery_ramdisk PATCHED (read later) so you can skip few steps !
let's start

(steps are copied by Athanatos81 post here in XDA that's basically what i applied with some minor changes )

I. Rooting your device
1. be sure ADB / fasboot are working on your pc(drivers) and smartphone - INSTALL magisk manager Magisk Manager
2. Download the patched file for your device and copy it to Minimal ADB & Fastboot folder.
( you can use my magisk recovery_ramdisk PATCHED it's created by using update.app from update.zip file of EMUI BUILD 9.0.1.175(C432E3R1P5)
that means IF you are on emui 9.0.1 with THAT BUILD NUMBER you can use it ... if you are on a different build DO NOT use it, I take no responsabilities !!!

3. Start your smartphone in fastboot mode pressing [Vol-]+[Power] and connect it to your PC. ( you can NOT enter fastboot? read in next section)
4. Open a Powershell and check if your honor 8 pro is listed by writing :
Code:
fastboot devices
you should see something like BYJDU17803000088 fastboot
that means your phone in correctly in fastboot/connected
5. Flash the Recovery_Ramdisk:
Code:
fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk magisk_patched.img
(in this case MY ALREADY MADE magisk recovery_ramdisk patched is named like that IF you choose a different name that CHANGE it also in the command)
when the process is complete (you'll get something like this
OKAY [ 0.184s]
finished. total time: 0.879s)
you need to REBOOT follow these next steps as i describe them or it won't work :
6. from your pc command window write
Code:
fastboot reboot
as soon as phone reboot
- remove usb cable
- PRESS and HOLD DOWN " volume up " VOL+ , keep it pressed until you see HONOR text (blue screen)
doing this will INSTALL MAGISK
7. your phone boot regularly(hopefully) now open Magisk Manager
you will see MAGISK 19.x.x.
and MAGISK 7.3.2
click on INSTALL (magisk 19.3) --- INSTALL ---- DIRECT INSTALL
when it's done it'll ask you to reboot , click reboot

phone is rooted !!!!!
i hope it helps for any references have a look at these pages which helped me :
root emui 9
magisk download
Magisk info

ROOT EMUI 9.1.0.210
first of all thank you to @OldDroid and @Athanatos81 for support ...
DOWNLOAD my patched magisk: PATCHED Magisk recovery 9.1.0.210

I'll descrive here the process how to update and root from 9.0.1.175 to 9.1.0.210

in my case i was on emui 9.0.1.175 rooted and i couldn't enter recovery or fastboot or simply update through system update !
so before starting it go in system settings -> update and DOWNLOAD your update
when you end your download don't restart and update BUT enter in fastboot:

to enter fastboot i had to restart honor 8 pro (while connected to usb)
and keep pressing VOL DOWN

now in fastboot you'll do following steps
(to install official update YOU FIRST NEED to install stock recovery so in this case 9.0.1.175 stock recovery .. while if you just need root on your actual rom you can just use the patched magisk recovery)

check if your smartphone is seen

fastboot devices

now

fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk magisk_patched_9_1_0_210.img ( in this case is the one i already patched for you )

fastboot reboot

let system start and than use ADB

adb reboot recovery

system will restart now open magisk manager
INSTALL MAGISK( in my case v20.1 )
INSTALL direct
reboot when asked

congratulations your Emui 9.1 is rooted !!!

just another important update :
if you have got (probably you did "system settings update") read this:
I've got that "system update settings" on my honor 8 Pro and guess what? I've lost magisk root... so I need to do procedure again.. unbelievable but that is it! I found out cause I started to see annoying advertising and I checked adaway and "no root"

RECOVERY_RAMDISK_9_1_0_210.img md5sum = c62ac7fdc55cb535d1b627b8f17f1842

Bro which file to flash from this two.. actually I flashed magisk patched file and it worked fine with magisk installed but then I tried custom rom and it didn't work so flashed stock rom again and lost root access so I did same step but this time magisk isn't installing and not giving root access.. idk what's wrong can you please help?
