- Includes.
-ADB & Fastboot + dll files | Magisk Manager | recovery_ramsdisk |** I included an already patched magisk which is the ramdisk**

-go into fastboot and run | fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk *insert patched_magisk.img*

Hello! Ive been able to root with the lastest magisk but it seems one of my apps (pokemon go) seems to be able to detect that i have magisk even though i use magiskhide already. It happens both to emui 9 then i decided to downgrade to emui 8 but its still happening. How do i use a lower version of magisk?

I made a mistake it was a ANE-LX1 c432e6r1p7
Okay, I have the same region.
Step by step: :)
1. Downgrade to EMUI 8.0 via HiSuite (update > older version (other version) > restore . Process will erase all your data! Try chinese HiSuite
https://consumer.huawei.com/cn/support/hisuite/

Note: If the rollback option is not available with your HiSuite ("switch to the older version", "Earlier version", it may hapen), you must downgrade to the lower (optimally first) Pie build version number doing the dload method (flashing Service ROM for your model and REGION (Cxxx)! This process will erase all your data! Service ROM can be found on androidhost.ru . Type ANE- or ANNE- .

2. Now, with EMUI 8.0 on board, you have to downgrade to the lower version of build number, with google patch from 04.2018 or earlier.
Download Service ROM C432 8.0.0.126

https://androidhost.ru/5O5

Unpack downloaded zip archive on the PC, transfer dload file to SD card root directory without unpacking it!!!(instructions can be found in folder ReleaseDoc).
3. Turn off your phone and install Service ROM using three buttons combo. The proces will erase all your data !
4. Set up your phone. Finita la commedia. :)
Running 8.0.0.126 you should be able to use DC-Unlocker (hcu-client) and get Bootloader unlock code .
5. Buy 4 credits from DC-Unlocker (4 Euro) (https://www.dc-unlocker.com/buy)
When you have 4 credits on your account, go and download
https://hcu-client.com/download/hcu-client-v1-0-0-0362/
Password: hcu
Extract the contents of the zip to a folder called HCU in the root of your C: drive. Follow instructions.
When you have the code, save it!

I know i am late to see the post. but is this method possible now? i have a huawei p20 lite ane-lx1 but with latest security patch of march 2020 and the firmware being 9.1.xx
Whenever i try to pay at dc unlocker, it says payment rejected whatever method i use.if its not available anymore, there is no point in trying.

can't you use the Huawei PC program to downgrade that. in the same place you can sometimes upgrade there manually you can find an option to downgrade to 8.0 if im not mistaken

    So I just got this phone just for fun, it was 75 USD, and went straight to XDA to root it so i can remove some bloat etc. but holy moly i ended up have 10 tabs with different guides open, i have compiled what I did to get this phone rooted.

    I want to thank everyone who made different threads about rooting and installing Magisk on this phone, i have read so many guides now so i cant remember their names!.
    BUT THANK YOU!.


    Let's get to it

    Here is what I did for to unlock the bootloader, install magisk and root my Huawei P20 Lite ANE-LX1

    First you need to install HiSuite: https://consumer.huawei.com/minisite/HiSuite_en/
    and then install ADB and Fastboot drivers: https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-windows.zip
    (extract the platform-tools folder to the root of your C: drive)

    Plug in your phone and let it install drivers.

    Then you need to downgrade your firmware to 146 using Dload method, as DCU Client can't read the bootloader unlock code on newer firmwares.

    I used "Huawei P20 Lite ANE-L21 Anne-L21 8.0.0.146(C432) Firmware Android 8.0.0 EMUI 8.0.0 05014YXX androidhost.ru.zip" (https://androidhost.ru/6ti)

    When finished downloading, open the zip file, open software and copy the folder "Dload" to the root of your EXTERNAL SD CARD, not internal storage!.
    Now take your phone and "dial" *#*#2846579#*#* go to Software Upgrade -> SdCard Upgrade and click OK.

    Your phone should now begin installing the old firmware, when the phone first boots up, dont set it up, turn it off and hold Volume up + Power and select Wipe Data/Factory Reset, Wipe Cache, and then reboot.

    With the phone booted, enable USB Debugging (Settings > System > About Phone > version number > Tap it 7 times to become developer, AND click OEM-Unlock, then go to Settings > System > Developer Options > USB Debugging).

    Now we need to buy 4 credits from DC-Unlocker (4 Euro) ( https://www.dc-unlocker.com/buy ) when you have 4 credits on your account, go and download https://hcu-client.com/download/hcu-client-v1-0-0-0287/ Password: hcu
    extract the contents of the zip to a folder called HCU in the root of your C: drive

    Open up HCU.exe, type in your username and password (check your mail, the info will be there).
    Grab your phone and dial *#*#2846579#*#*, go to Background Settings -> USB Port Settings -> Manufacture Mode and press close.
    Plug in your phone and let it install drivers.

    Open up HCU client, select Unlock, and then Read Bootloader Code.

    when you have the code, save it!

    Turn off your phone
    Hold volume down and power, now we are in fastboot mode.

    Open CMD and write:
    CD C:\platform-tools

    fastboot oem unlock YOUR UNLOCK KEY HERE


    Accept the stuff and unlock your bootloader, your phone will be factory reset, and all your data lost if you dont have a backup.

    Turn the phone off and on again, set it up, and go to settings -> System -> System update, and update, mine was ANE-LX1 8.0.0.162(C432)

    Now re-enable USB Debugging option in Developer Options.

    install Magisk Manager (https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/releases/download/v18.0/Magisk-v18.0.zip)

    Download patched_ramdisk.img (https://mega.nz/#!GWp1ia6R!xUcg_T_17v1ktlFQPq-Ujo4DRKfAg8E4-_k2J2zLO60)
    and place it in the root of your phones internal storage

    Open up Magisk Manager, press install -> install -> Patch Boot Image File -> find the patched_ramdisk.img and click OK.

    Now open CMD and write:
    CD C:\platform-tools>

    adb pull /storage/emulated/0/download/patched_boot.img

    Now you should have the patched_boot.img in your platform tools folder.

    Turn off your phone, hold volume down and power to get to fastboot mode.

    in CMD write:
    CD C:\platform-tools>

    fastboot flash ramdisk patched_boot.img

    reboot your phone and check if magisk was installed correctly and check if you have root.

    Hope this works for you!

    Great guide. Just a tip instead of using cd C:\platform-tools you can shift+right click on the adb folder and click "open powershell here". Saves some time

    I followed this guide once and it worked fine for me. However, I kinda messed up my phone a lil bit and had to re-install a bunch of stuff which in the process unrooted my phone. My bootloader is still unlocked but I can't flash the ramdisk partition for whatever reason. It just gives me the error: FAILED (remote: partition length get error). I can flash the zip through twrp, but magisk manager still says it's not installed. Any way I can fix this?

    Hey,

    my ANE-LX1 is at build 9.1.0.147(C432), bootloader still locked.

    I think, the only way to get bootloader unlocked would be to downgrade to 8-146. But the dload-method discribed here does not work (any more?)

    Does somebody knows a way to get magisk/root/unlock from a phone with 9.1?

    Regards,
    mtx

    The dload method does work, I used hisuite to downgrade from 9.1 to 8.5 then used the dload method to downgrade further to 8.146. You can't go form 9.1 to 8.146, so first use hisuite then try the dload method.
