Face Unlock for Honor 8 Pro Oreo
(Mate 9 EMUI8 is confirmed too)

Download and flash in TWRP: https://mega.nz/#!FfxihZqD!vjF2rz0elfiay_ZYeQWwLfVG9lNI7FYAyi2vaohaiEs

Magisk module: https://mega.nz/#!1Xp0DbaC!fJvieuQWjbAauylqCvngHoM3wLPChTTCgPdO0yy0UC8
If anyone good at making modules looks at it, please find a proper way of doing it. Right now I only symlink files to /product and /odm. The symlinks in /odm stays after uninstall. Best would be to actually auto mount (like /system and /vendor is) it but I think magisk needs to be edited for that (?)

Make sure you have /odm and /product available in TWRP, else update (not sure which as I don't have an Honor 8 Pro)

To "enrol" (lol) face after installing, go to Settings -> Security & Privacy -> Face unlock

Face unlock is actually available already in Honor 8 Pro from the start, it just needs to be enabled.
And a few files are missing which I took from Honor V10 firmware.
If you want to revert, just check the zip for what files to remove and remove
ro.config.face_detect=1
ro.config.face_recognition=true
from /product/etc/prop/local.prop

Thanks to @LastStandingDroid for testing and pointing out where prop was located.

Not working my honor 8 pro 8.0 B360 no detect the face and crash camera front
This means you don't have odm in your twrp partition. However ante will release a magisk version which will be easier

It is as fast i believe just press power and make sure your face is where it's possible for camera to find you. Also the angles are pretty huge. Which is unbelievable that it is proper. At least my mate can't unlock it [emoji38]

The latest from P10plus forum doesn't work because it doesn't support odm partition.
Today I will add new twrp version there.

does it related to build number ??!

It's not related to build number. Normally we don't need the odm partition so nobody add this partition to his twrp.

    This has been implemented in the newest official update for the Honor V9 and it works great. Super fast and accurate.
