Hello!

I'm new to modifying anything on any device.
I'm wondering is it possible to install Lineage OS or any custom OS on Matepad Pro? If so do you have any suitable tutorials for this purpose?
Need I root the device first in order to install custom os?

Cheers

Hi

At the moment the only thing you can do is to install Google Services with googlefier. For this you need to downgrade your MatePad to version 10.1.0.120. After downgrading you can install all the google services.
Googlefier lets you easily install Google apps on Huawei and Honor devices (xda-developers.com)


To install custom Roms you need to unlock the bootloader which not possible for now. I also thought about brute force the unlock code from the bootloader. But sadly, the needed commands aren't available.
MatePad Pro supports Project treble. You possibly can install GSI Roms. But as said above, without unlocking we can't to anything..

After running Googlefier, does Gapps stick if you allow Huawei FW updates?
