Hi,

you want to flash EMUI 9 Beta, are FRP and bootloader unlocked and rooted? Great, here we go.

Disclaimer: I am not responsible for your bricked devices. This has only been tested by a few people with Windows 10 and EML-L29 C432. Other models may or may not work. Please don't use that method if you don't know how to recover your phone from a bricked or semi-bricked state.
It might be a good idea to disable your antivirus if you run into warnings. There is no root.

Steps:
- Download THE TOOL™ v0.2
- Download the matching firmware bundle for your device. With EMUI 9 the firmware files for L09 and L29 differ.
- Extract THE TOOL™
- Extract the firmware bundle, you'll get two ZIPs and some XMLs.
- Start FLASH.bat inside of the extracted tool folder - it will guide you through the procedure.
- I did not have to factory reset. Maybe you will still need to.
- I have no idea if you will be able to receive OTAs or upgrade to future builds.

Disclaimer: Its not my fault or my responsibility if you brick your phone. I have almost no spare time at the moment, so I will probably not be able to help you. Also, there is no root.

Download:
EML-L09 C432 - Build 9.0.0.47
EML-L29 C432 - Build 9.0.0.45

- and of course to all the brave testers!

There is no root. Also, please don't blame if your device dies. And I don't know if VoLTE works.

I already unlocked my bootloader and currently rooted on EMUI 8.1, got everything I need to do it with Android Pie. I've been looking into other ROMs like Lineage and AOSP, but I haven't found any good info for the P20... Only for the P20 Pro and Lite, which really sucks, it feels like the normal P20 doesn't even exist, a lot of forums only have subs for the Pro and Lite, it's very annoying.

What is stopping me, or anyone that was lucky enough to root before Huawei stopped that, from rooting EMUI 9? I don't have a lot of experience with android and roms so I'm kinda fuzzy on details.

    07.09.2017 - v0.2 - script now should work inside path containing spaces
    06.09.2018 - v0.1 - initial release

    Will this work by sideloading the firmware with ADB (without root and unlocked bootloader)?

    VoLTE works perfect!

    Any new info on possible root with this? Or do we have to wait till the full EMUI 9 release for that?
