Not from the site I posted, if you could, I'd be sharing the file. I already have the L29 rom, and I am 99.9999% the roms in theory are interchangeable, its just seeing what file in the rom would stop the flashing, because I'm sure there is an ID in the phone that the rom checks for L29 or AL00 phone. I know when working with HTC phones we were able to change the ID to 0000 which at that point didnt matter which variant you had it would work as long as the partitions were the same.

We can package the header of AL00 into the L29 rom. This will mean that we can only flash via twrp instead of update thru phone. OTA will fail as it downloads the L29 updates and will fail the region check.

If I was to guess I think he is referring to the added 128GB in storage, I'm assuming he is wondering if you put the Global rom onto the Chinese 256GB is it going to see the added 128GB, because again as I said I speculate (Until the L00 ROM is available) that the structure should be the same, thats why once at least the AL00 128GB ROM comes available I would think it would be the same structure, and can be attempted to do an install to the same phone size before attempting to the 256GB phone, But the only way we would know that is by getting a custom TWRP for the 20x to attempt doing any cross install.

*EDIT*

Just found this, https://firmware.gem-flash.com/index.php?a=browse&b=category&id=26792
https://firmware.gem-flash.com/index.php?a=browse&b=category&id=26791

Trying to confirm its correct, and trying to find it without a pay site.

EVR L29 here (edit)

We are looking for the EVR-AL00 Rom for comparison of image structure.

EVR-AL00 is at the links you posted here (and I on a different thread) so I posted the L29 as well just in case. All paid links though.

L29 is bigger by ~ 400MB

according to the website

Total file size is 3273 MB and has compressed to 1271 MB to save bandwidth for download

3.71GB for the L29

Here is the link for the AL00.
https://mega.nz/#!Q4lTzKwa!6atlsoRB-0DRWKFg9p2P0BF6PNk-_azgXudQh7buFhY

Ps, Please use at your own risk. I haven’t received my device yet as it will be arriving this week.

In one of the xml files it does a check for csc for the model number. Not sure if it will be as simple as changing it there. Either way I attached this for comparison. Hopefully it will be useful for future development of rebranding.

posts 1 and 4 (understand L00 was already posted here as well also by fatouraee and in the other thread thanks to him)

https://forum.xda-developers.com/mate-20-x/development/l29-108-firmware-t3867992

Well that showed up quick after I mentioned it, So should I say and when is the rebranding going to be released? (Watch 3 hours later we will have a rom :D)

And now the hunt for rebranding begins :D
@fatouraee we'd hope it was as easy as changing the csc, but the reality nothing is that easy.

I am so much tempting to install magisk but i need stock boot.img file to patch and flash via adb but its risky haha lets see what happens

Ok so I received my unlock code to unlock the bootloader on the AL00. Now here is the real noob question as I am new to Huawei devices, how do we apply the code to the actual device? I googled but getting o many different instructions. Any help or point me somewhere would be great thanks

I don`t know why but I unlocked mine too. Waiting for our smart guys to make TWRP and root. And then it will be the best phone ever.

One question guys, after unlocking the Mate 20X, is it possible lock it again? Because, after the rebrand i want to keep the bootloader locked, is it possible? u.u
