Hey, thank you man, i just jumped over to PIE so this is music to my ears.
This is my first port of call for flashing ROM's
Just trying to work out the flashing process, huawei is so messed up compared to other phones man.

Dude what in the holy s*** is that boot animation? Why would you do that to us? Lol i'm so glad i wasn't in public put it that way.
Having a horrible time on pie, flahed your aicp rom, internal memory is still encrypted for some reason, can't use camera, so assumed it was in need of a format, tried a format, it got stuck, left it for a long time.
Forced a shut down (i had no choice)
Can't use eRecovery as it says it can't get the package to restore, but after wiping from there TWRP worked.
So re-installed the rom after installing the keep decrypted zip.
Now after the installation the OS won't be and TWRP doesn't show anything, stuck on logo.
Trying to get to recovery again but it feels like i'm starting to go round in circles.
Hoping i haven't borked anything.
Any ideas how to revert back to a functional anything?
recovered by flashing a bunch of files from the bootloader using the fastboot command.
i had to extract these files from the firmware i downloaded, i was on 190 so downloaded 190.
Just in case anyone else ends up here.
PIE is crap btw, i wish i'd have stayed on oreo. Had so much more.

Reflashed the rom again, still didn't work. Currently on 18.104.22.168
Reflashing all the img files again to get my phone back.
Also if your data is still encrypted during first boot, then you did something wrong. During 1st boot , then yes it gets encrypted again because p20 pro is encrypted by default. Too bad TWRP is useless and can't decrypt.
- Im unaware of the keep decrypted zip as i want it encrypted and also i never flash anything i don't need.
To restore/fix your phone or to go back to stock , there is an easier method than doing them manually.
The flash tool from here https://forum.xda-developers.com/hu...awei-p20-pro-charlotte-l29c432b131-8-t3809964
using your firmware version (the right one for your model) is bringing everything back with just a click and a few taps.
**Oh about the logo... i didn't do that. These files are in "cust" partition. These logos were already there from stock huawei firmware and for some reason i don't know, because i never looked up to it, we see them.
I don't know what you saw, but when i use my vodafone sim card as a 1st sim, i see a black guy doing some stupid sexy dancing............ i hate it too..... but i'm bored to look for it and delete it manually from cust.
No. You were right. Just checked it and its the normal boot animation.... wtf with those guys in AICP.... im changing it during this week.
Really sorry about that boot animation. I thought of it as being something in cust partition and I ignored it.
EDIT: @dladz , They told me it was a prank for April.
US command to ban Huawei affects all of us.
Huawei never shared working sources for our phone. They shared a source for all their CLT series which we have to make it work somehow.
So as things stand right now, if Huawei doesn't share a working source for L29, i don't see android Q ever booting. And stock Android Q is not gonna make it, unless they include p20 pro to their devices that will get their newly created OS which is not public yet.
If nothing changes , as things are right now, this is the end of the line. We can only maintain Pie.
Yes I did similar to what you said above. No, no prompted to set up or play store installed. Only had launcher and only could press back to go back. If I click on center did nothing. Also quick settings show me only the first line. ?So you used mindtheG-apps and it installed correctly yes? So were you prompted to set up your device or did it just show you the launcher on boot? Was the playstore installed when you opened the app drawer? any errors in twrp when installing?
Might be an idea to try this method.
1.Download the ROM and Mind the G-apps and put them in your ADB folder
2 Use newest TWRP 22.214.171.124
3 Push both the ROM and Gapps to tmp, then flash both AOSCP and MindtheG-Apps, DO NOT BOOT // REBOOT YET!
4. Boot to bootloader (adb reboot bootloader from TWRP)
5. Fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk the original recovery (this will need to be in your ADB Folder, it's called recovery_ramdis,img)
6. Fastboot reboot / quickly - disconnect cable and hold up, Wipe data factory reset in official recovery.
Done - Boot and set up
Obviously back up before doing this.
Worked for me on another ROM.
Hope this helps.
Then G-apps has not installed correctly.
Go through the steps i have written out.
Do not forget the wipe in stock recovery, that was a big miss by me, but it matters.
Also the TWRP version you use matters too. Avoid the unofficial one for this.
I think it may be the factory reset / wipe data in stock recovery that you've missed, it has to be STOCK recovery, TWRP will not clean up correctly No idea why but it doesn't lol.
Give it a try.
fastboot flash kernel kernel.img
I've asked because I'm on lineage os 16 and there is a problem in flashing it, and I have to delete some lines in updater script to make flashing possible.who knows......
me i can't get those updates. There isn't any full ota package released for l29-c432 beyond 195.
If nothing changed in kernel since 195 then it will boot fine.
What do you have to lose ?
If you are thinking about it, it means that you are prepared to wipe data partition. Worst case is that it doesn't boot and you flash back the huawei rom.
Let us all know if it will boot.
You can also try this if it doesn't boot.
You may try flashing only kernel.img in kernel partition manually in fastboot. flashing the v195 kernel it will boot for sure.
Flashing only kernel is not dangerous, it's not part of the bootloader stack so it won't hard brick the device.
Just careful you don't flash the kernel in any other partition.
Sorry I can't test nfc with payments. For file transfer it works.
i have a Big problem.
I have a p20 pro with emui 8.1 and patch november 2018.
I want test modding rom but is impossible unlocked the bootloader.
I ask a ministry of solution but i said that impossible because P20 is totaly blocked.
Please give me a solution!!!!
Whats difficult ?
