Hey.

In this tutorial i will show you how to root Huawei Y6 2018.

Devices that should work:
ATU-L11
ATU-L21
ATU-L22
ATU-L23
ATU-L31
ATU-L42
YGN-AL00
YGN-L21
YGN-L22
YGN-L23
YGN-L41
YGN-L42
YGN-L51
YGN-L61
YGN-TL10


First you need to have the bootloader unlocked and usb debugging enabled.


Download this Magisk Patched Ramdisk from here: https://mega.nz/#!OdpDiKJb!MBjuu0fbjqSuynxGZ9n0x9JuoqXcV5YYXoZOvOaYAbU
After that go into fastboot and type: fastboot flash ramdisk ramdisk.img
Now type fastboot reboot. Wait your phone to boot and now it should be rooted:)
(You might have to install Magisk Manager mannualy to propretly use root permissions)

Tested only on ATU-L21, use at your own risk!

Tested only on EMUI 8. I'm not sure if it would work on Lineage 15.0
Original Ramdisk: https://mega.nz/#!bdwTiD5I!STHIWQrCle_nCoPKe4_Mgvo9z_Qn4Etnnhbt0fmG1PE
Kernel.img, if your phone shows Huawei logo and then goes blackscreen: https://mega.nz/#!KAoR3KYT!ufZv7ZbBsB_Bf9Rw_7vovbGJMmsuPOpUeIAFgUohKE0
If something goes wrong, you could try to flash this one.

I won't recommend to install it on ATU-Lxx because it's build for The L21, every bootimage of all ATU devices are different except L22 and. L22, so you might soft brick your phone. But still thanks for your tutorial.

One friend of mine, Runner85sx, looked into your device Kernel and veryifed what models of the Y6 2018 should be compatibile with this root method.
Thread updated, with the devices that will root sucesfully with this method.

how to unlock bootloader? mine is ATU-L22

This is not the place to ask these things at all...

To unlock your bootloader you will need to get your Bootloader unlock code, witch huawei doesen't provide anymore, from what i know. So you will have to use something like DC-Unlocker and pay to get your bootloader unlock code. After you got your bl unlock code you should install HiSuite, Minimal adb and fastboot on your PC. After that enable USB Debugging and OEM Unlock from your device developer settings.
Now connect your device to your PC and type this in Minimal adb and fastboot console:
Code:
adb devices
Now accept any dialog that will show up on your phone. If your device is recognised then type
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
Then write
Code:
fastboot devices
To see if your device is recognised while in fastboot, and if it is type
Code:
fastboot oem unlock (bl unlock code)
That's it.
For any futher help make a thread on Huawei Y6 Questions and Answers please.

THIS IS NOT THE THREAD TO ASK THAT.
If i had i would share it on the forums. As you see there are no recoveries for the Y6 2018.

Sorry just got curious.. thanks for the guide btw but there is a problem, I cannot access any google application like playstore,gmail, & etc,. I can't also add Google account because it loads forever and at the end it says: "Couldn't sign in". Need help please Thanks!

Could you please be more explicit?
So you rooted your phone with this method, and after you applied a update to Magisk? or Magisk Manager now your phone wont boot?

Also what happens when you want to acces play store?

Yes I rooted my phone with this guide and the root access works at first playstore still works connected with my Google account so I tried to remove it but when I try to add any google account it just keep loading, Gmail loads forever. after that I tried to update the Magisk inside the manager which got success but when i boot it up. It just shows "Huawei" then turn off.

I see. You could try to flash the original ramdisk from fastboot just like you flashed the patched ramdisk.
Download link: https://mega.nz/#!bdwTiD5I!STHIWQrCle_nCoPKe4_Mgvo9z_Qn4Etnnhbt0fmG1PE

Why you wanted to remove it? x)
You could maybe uninstall all google stuff and install MicroG/Reinstall Gapps. Or restore Emui's system.
I think you should give a try to iDecript's Lineage 15.0 Rom.

Well I accidentally deleted it because my mails on my Gmail won't load but that doesn't work. Actually I'm already downloading Lineage OS with Gapps & SuperSu by iDecrypt. I'm hoping it is much snappier than EMUI 8.0.0. Fact is this is my first phone from Huawei right after I got my Galaxy note 4 lcd broke which cost half of the phone itself lol. So I'd rather buy a new phone than replacing the old one. :3
Restore EMUI system? how? is that on eRecovery? the only option on it was 1.)"Download latest version and recovery"which doesn't work 2.)"Wipe data/factory reset" 3.)Reboot 4.)Shutdown
Do you have stock rom for this model? cuz I can't seem to find one for this. Thanks for your time btw :D
I tried the first link you provide which is ramdisk but that doesn't help either.

Here is the Stock Rom for ATU-L21. I know you own an ATU-L22 but from what i know it should work perfectly with your model too.
Download link: http://huawei-firmware.com/rom/huawei-y6-2018/atu-l21/19931
I will upload it to MEGA later today, as the download speed is much better on Mega.

Yeah well from now i don't recommend Huawei Phones anymore as they don't provide Bootloader Unlock codes anymore.
Instructions on restoring Stock should be avalabile on the same page that i sent you for downloading.
As of my time, well if i made this thread i should also help people that had issues:)
As i don't have the device and i'm not really used to Treble i'm not yet providing treble Roms for this device. But i might be doing that in the future.

You should try to use erecovery to install it.
Put that update.zip in dload folder on sdcard/internal. Then press power vol up vol down when your phone is not on.

The problem is the phone is bricked, Yes I can access eRecovery but computer doesn't recognize it both internal & external.

Just insert a sdcard and place the dload folder containing the update.zip then. Is it recognised in fastboot? Then why don't you flash LineageOS to make the phone usable for a while.
There is another option. Get the update. app and extract it with huawei update extractor. Then go into fastboot and flash ramdisk, kernel and everything you can flash from that.
Example: fastboot flash kernel kernel.img
Didn't quite have time for helping more.

    How to root your Y6 2018.
    Tutorial for complete noobs:


    Go into your phone. Go in developer settings (Tap the build number 7 times if you didn't do that yet).
    Enable usb debugging and OEM unlock.
    Now plug your phone into your PC via a usb cable and install hisuite on your PC.
    Install Minimal adb and fastboot from: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2317790
    Now unlock your device and in minimal adb and fastboot type:
    Code:
    adb devices
    Accept any dialog that show on your phone's screen.
    After that type:
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader

    If your bootloader is unlocked then you should be able to flash the Magisk patched Ramdisk.
    If its not then you can't root your device with this method.
    To unlock your bootloader go to: https://www.emui.com/en/unlock_index
    And get your bootloader unlock code. 22 July is the last day to get your code if you didn't get it yet.
    If you didn't get your bootloader unlock code until then, then you will have to use DC-Unlocker or other paid methods.
    After you got your code, while in fastboot, type:
    Code:
    fastboot oem unlock xxxxxxxxx
    [xxxxxxxxx = bootloader unlock code]

    Place the patched Ramdisk in the folder you installed Minimal adb and Fastboot.
    After you did that you should paste the following command:
    Code:
    fastboot flash ramdisk ramdisk.img

    Press the thanks button if i helped;)
