yes it is a game .it is written your mobile is not compatible with this version just like when I threw under android 7 because it requires android 8 to function. it is possible to download it elsewhere but when I was running on android 7 it did not help me, I will try again with this current system

Yep thanks, I forget to choose Recovery when I flash the stock recovery ramdisk, so my twrp install it on the last choice that it's system image 😅

To resolve my problem I reinstall my previous system (EMUI 8 for honor 6x) and this time I wipe the david cache, system, cache ... after format the data partition
And I didn't install any OpenGAPPS and it works fine !
A little empty, but I will try without Google services to see if it sweet to me, it saved a lot of battery so that's nice !

Again, I thank you all of you for your amazing work thank you very much 🤩 my honor 6x can still live haha

Edit : no it's too painfull without google services haha

PotatoNV tool 🥔. Check requirements in post 1(in spoiler).
Below requirements, there's a heading "All in one guide" in which I linked @lmaohelp 's guide. unlocking bootloader is also described in it very clearly.

Well should I take the requirements out of the spoiler? I feel that section isn't getting much attention even if it has very(atleast a little 🤣) useful information.

    @Venkata Lochan Nune
    After almost 2 month using the OS, i found two issues that can be related to this ROM or AOSP 11 in general.

    The phone can overheating and bug as hell after a long usage and a lot of app install on it. (It happens me twice and need to factory reset each time)
    The overheating goes to 40-50°C, but the overheating is on the full phone surface. Normally when you have 40°C, you can't very feel it on your hand, but when the whole system start to lag, the phone became a barbecue heater x)

    The other problem is Whatsapp. Whatsapp app cause the data partition corrupted, and so a factory reset is mandatory.
    It happens me 5 times, each after installing Whatsapp.
    So whatsapp definitely not compatible on this ROM. I install it yesterday and today, and restarting my phone even cause a Data partition severely damaged.

    I'm not sure if it's because to the huge amount of data created by Whatsapp.


    Also, the Google restore not working so i cannot backup my previous settings and app installed, and have to reinstall and resetup all manually.
    Also since the camera app save image on local storage, I loose each time my image on factory reset.


    Waiting for the AOSP 12, there is not any more hope on this AOSP 11 :(
    Did you check if the usb debugging is enabled? If yes, disable it. It is the main reason for my phone to heat up. After disabling that, my phone cooled down.

    Tyr asking about your problems in the telegram group I've mentioned. They are much more experienced than me and might be able to help you out.

    Follow the telegram groups and rose bot will help you with everything...

    If you reply with "#best-roms" you'll get this..
    Best roms for our Huawei devices:

    1. Lineage 18.1 by DarkJoker360

    ======================
    Phh-Treble gsis

    2. AOSP 11 by @phhusson
    3. CrDroid by @eternityson
    4. Bliss Roms/Bless 11 by @eternityson
    5. CAOS 11 by @eternityson
    To correctly install them use #a11-installation-guide
    Also download GSI image for a-only/arm64 variant!
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    And for bugs, you need to search "a11-fixes"

    A11 fixes "2" Workarounds/Fixes for Lineage 18.1 and other A11 GSI's:

    - Gapps :
    NikGapps Core - https://sourceforge.net/projects/ni...ps-core-arm64-11-20210131-signed.zip/download
    OpenGapps Pico - https://sourceforge.net/projects/op...ps-arm64-11.0-pico-20210110-TEST.zip/download

    - Fingerprint:
    At first I couldn't add my FP, then I went to "Settings/System/Gestures" and enabled "Swipe fingerprint for notifications"
    and tested if I can scroll notifications with it, after that I disabled it and then I noticed that I could add FP. So in the end it WORKS.

    - Calling :
    If you are using NikGapps, u need to go to "Settings/Apps and Notifications/Default Apps" and set default Phone app/Dialer.
    Then you can make calls without problems.

    - Sounds for notifications/alarm :
    Can't be found, you need to download and install "Google/Pixel Sounds app" and set ringtone sound manually.
    Download:

    - Root :
    As default it doesn't work. But it can be enabled using one of Hamido's 3 methods. You can find them here in group, hit "search button".
    Download: https://sourceforge.net/projects/latviandude-s-projects/files/Huawei P8 Lite 2017/Android 11/Fixes-Workarounds/Root/

    - Netflix :
    Latest versions doesn't let you play videos, I believe.. So to be able do that you need to download this version - "6_26_1_build_15_31696_31696".
    It will still give you sometimes error messages ,for example, when you try to play next episode but at least you will be able to watch something.
    Download: https://sourceforge.net/projects/latviandude-s-projects/files/Huawei P8 Lite 2017/Android 11/Fixes-Workarounds/Netflix/

    - Instagram :
    Everything is ok except you can't add Story from Gallery, so to fix this you need to install older Instagram version. (apkmirror)

    - OneDrive :
    It's ok, except you can't download your files, documents using app. But there's an workaround, Thanks to Hamido like always.
    You can download your files using ADM Browser app (PlayStore)

    - RIL/Network :
    As I have Latvia SIM Card and Dual Sim Variant - PRA-LX1, after first boot I notice - Network restart issue.
    To fix it you need to set PIN Lock from different device, if it doesn't help, you need to disable Dual sim with "persist.radio.multisim.config=none"
    and reboot ur device, usually it works, else u need to go to Settings and reset APN settings.

    - Location :
    Google Maps, fails to detect correct location (some meters accuracy inside house but I'm sure it works,
    u just need to go outside and do some walking to get more accurate location)

    If you are havin other issues, you prolly didn't follow a11-installation guide! Else if you did, tell us your problem :) use a11-fixes2 as hashtag.
    Ahh thanks for reply...yeah I have joined the group

    *Tell me if something isn't working.

    ***If you have a bricked device/messed up somewhere during the process and unable to figure out what to do, follow this guide by @lmaohelp .***


    This was already described in a separate thread which describes the process to get back to EMUI 8 from custom ROMs. You can find it here.

    Just follow the procedure in that thread. You need not even flash the frp unlock thing. After that, follow the process described in this thread.

    It's recommended to be on original EMUI 8 before installing base EMUI 8 for hi6250. Follow the process linked in requirements to install EMUI 8 first then follow this spoiler.

    Procedure :
    • Make sure your device is running stock EMUI 8.
    • Extract downloaded image using some xz extractor(7zip can also do this), copy it to pc.
    • Reboot your device to TWRP.
    • Format the data partition {Wipe > Format data > type "yes"}
    • Flash fstab.hi6250b.zip from attachments
    • Check if your device is detected by adb using
      Code:
      adb devices
      .
    • Move the img file using adb to device
      Code:
      adb push -p *img-name*.img /sdcard/
      (the img file must be in adb directory).
    • (Optional, only if you want gapps) Move Gapps in the same manner
      Code:
      adb push -p *gapps-name*.zip /sdcard/
      (the zip file must be in adb directory).
    • Install img as system image {Install > Install Image > Select > Choose system image > Swipe➡}.
    • (Optional, only if you want gapps) Unmount and Remount system partition as writable. Go to wipe > advanced wipe > Choose system > resize > Swipe➡.
    • Flash gapps.
    • Flash stock recovery. Push it with adb using
      Code:
      adb push -p stock_recovery_ramdisk.img /sdcard/
      and flash it with twrp as "Recovery" after choosing install image.
    • Disconnect your device from PC and reboot to recovery(stock one).
    • Clear cache partition and perform a factory reset(You'll get an error during factory reset but you have to do it) (your device will bootloop if wiped with twrp itself).
    • Reboot, Cross your fingers 🤞 and wait.
    >Booting is quite different in android 11 ROMs on our device. You'll see the "Your device has been unlocked" screen for more time than usual. Then, you'll see the boot animation (for very short time on subsequent boots) and the device will boot to ROM. So, be patient. (This isn't the case with ROMs upto android 10)

    >Face Unlock is working perfectly



    Additionals:
    >Its better to charge your device to atleast 70% before doing anything as you'll have ample of time to recover it if you messed up something. If not, you can still charge your device in eRecovery mode and twrp but i found some issues like heating up and slow charging.
    >Don't forget to set ringtone, notification and other sounds from settings after booting.

    Updates :
    • Nothing yet...

    😊Happy Flashing !

    How on the earth did you even think I would live without root? 🤣🤣🤣

    Hello, do you know how can I factory reset in the Huawei ERecovery step at the end ?
    I try to do it so but it keep reboot my phone to TWRP recovery, it's like I can't wipe data/factory reset my phone from the stock recovery.
    Maybe TWRP is bloking it ? Should I disable something in the TWRP settings ?

    Between thanks for yours work !
    Your mistake is that your using stock erecovery.

    You have to use stock recovery. Meaning flashing the stock recovery provided in post 1 over the twrp recovery :



    - in TWRP Recovery Flash STOCK_RECOVERY_RAMDISK.img {Install > Install Image > Select > Choose recovery image > Swipe}


    - in TWRP recovery, reboot to recovery (even if TWRP says no OS installed)


    - in Stock recovery, wipe cache and factory reset (error is normal)


    - in Stock recovery, reboot and wait
    2
    Is it Gapps ? I use the nano one
    Nope, there's an app on play store called "power menu controls" download that. And the other, you could use Tasker(also an app from play store) to create your custom controls like the ones I did for screen rotation.
    2
    🤣 Well I think I did send you the correct command in post 27...

    Yes, the EMUI 8 update will override twrp and partitions will change. Now use the twrp from the attachments in post 1. The fastboot command also will change. You have to use
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk twrp.img
    Finally had the time to install it and surprise, I succeeded :)
    Now I just need to test it...

    Thanks for you help!
