Hi!
I find out how to activate the cloning app function [ app twin future] ( on my P8 Lite ALE EMUI 4.0.3 )!
What i have done?
Add this line, if your phone doesn't have it, to build.prop or local.prop in prop folder in your cust:
Code:
ro.config.hw_support_clone_app=true

Now, i pick from Mate 8 the file hw_clone_app_list.xml and paste in my xml folder on cust and give 644 permissions! ( /cust/hw/eu/xml - This path can be diferent from phone to phone, you must find out your cust path ). Then reboot! If doens´t show the option in setting below app option do backup and then a factory reset.

How to find your cust path? :confused:

Do this, use adb and write/copy and paste this code:
Code:
adb shell getprop ro.hw.custPath
then you will get your cust path.

My, for example, is /cust/hw/eu, inside eu i have the xml folder that i need to paste the file hw_clone_app_list.xml and the prop folder where is local.prop.

This is the composition from the hw_clone_app_list.xml file:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- DTS2016080802881 shiyuanchang/00271386 20160822 created -->
<AppClone>
    <package name="com.whatsapp"/>
    <package name="com.facebook.katana"/>
    <package name="com.facebook.orca"/>
</AppClone>

But you can add more app by adding is package name like this:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- DTS2016080802881 shiyuanchang/00271386 20160822 created -->
<AppClone>
    <package name="com.whatsapp"/>
    <package name="com.facebook.katana"/>
    <package name="com.facebook.orca"/>
	<package name="com.android.chrome"/>
	<package name="mega.privacy.android.app"/>
</AppClone>

I add Chrome and Mega app to clone list! Can be add twitter or any other app that you need, only need to know is package name!

If you try and works comment your Huawei model!

Enjoy it! ;)

I can't find hw_clone_app_list.xml in cust/all/eu and cust/all/eu/prop.
Do you mean that i should paste the hw_clone_app_list.xml to the two folders above?
