PREREQUISITES:
- Nubia Z17 device.
- USB type C cable.
- Computer with Windows and adb-fastboot drivers installed and configured (there are a lot of guides on the Internet).
- Nubia Z17 Pack -> You have the mirrors at the end of the post

STEPS:
1.- Download the pack with all the necessary stuff.
2.- Decompress the folder that is inside the rar.
3.- Open that folder, press SHIFT and at the same time do right click. Click on open a powershell... or open a command prompt...
NOTE: if appears the first option you have to send the command: cmd
4.- Put the phone on fastboot mode (power and vol+ at same time) and connect the phone to the computer.
5.- Send the command fastboot devices and it should give you something like this if the drivers are OK:

6.- Send this command to unlock bootloader: fastboot oem nubia_unlock NUBIA_NX563J
Now you have your bootloader unlocked!
7.- Send this command to flash TWRP: fastboot flash recovery TWRP_recovery.img
Now you have the TWRP recovery flashed!
8.- To reboot into recovery you have to choose with volume buttons the option to reboot recovery and press power.

There is a little problem, the recovery is in Chinese and I don't know you, but I don't understand Chinese :silly: So let's change the language.
9.- When it displays the first screen, something like this pic, you have to press the second button and choose your favourite language (I always recommend English)

10.- Now you have to root the phone, go to Advanced > Tools and press Root device.

Now you have your phone's bootloader unlocked, the TWRP recovery flashed and root access!

DOWNLOADS:
- Nubia Z17 Pack (MEGA)
Alternative mirror (DRIVE)

    i tried installing Open Gapps ARM64 7.1 Stock, everything was okay at first, but some times it stop working. after reboot, it took a while for the play store to work again.

    but at least it can be used while waiting for the International ROM.

    same for me bro. I wıll test a new rom tonıght.

    I think that international ROM will come, but after some months... Maybe some dev like Cuoco92, BB72 or pesa1234 buy this phone.

    Yeah,, at least we still can use the current method for the Gapps.

    I forget whre i read the news but someone said that Z17 will be launched in India on July or early August. I hope it is true. That means there will be an International firmware soon. :victory:
