Hi folks
Here for you the initial stage of porting progress of TWRP for Huawei P8 Lite 2017 and similar phone.

Code:
#include 
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

How to Backup Your Firmware:
  • Reboot to TWRP by press on Vol up .
  • Go to Mount.
  • Uncheck the following partitions: Cache, Data & System.
  • Back to main menu and click on Backup, choose all partitions and swipe to start backup firmware to sdcard then.

Installation Guide:
  • download the latest image.
  • rename to recovery.img.
  • now reboot to fastboot mode by connecting the phone to the usb and press power + vol down.
  • now run the command: fastboot flash recovery recovery.img && fastboot reboot.

Install Root/SuperSu Permissions:
  • Download the edited SuperSu for Emui 5.0 from AndroidFileHost .
  • Reboot to recovery by power + vol up (make sure is not connected to usb port).
  • Go to Install.
  • Choose SuperSU-v2.79-201612051815-EMUI5.0.zip.
  • Use Swipes to install the package.
  • Once installation is terminated, tab on Reboot.
  • Your device will bootloop for only one time so don't panic, could take some time.
  • You should see SuperSu between apps then.

Works
  • Recovery.
  • Backing up images is done without problems not like Revolution recovery that I get many errors failed errors.
  • Wipes.
  • Both Internal & External sdcard.
  • Restore.

-First beta has been released.
-Wipes should be fine.
-Backups is working (will be useful to backup your original firmware and save a copy on the computer).
-I will try to fix mounting internal and external storage bug.
-I'm not responsible for any damage caused by recovery.

Thanks for understanding :cool:

great!

I don't recommend to flash stock ota via twrp. I will upload 3rd build of twrp with some modification to the partitions that our device don't have.

Yes but I believe if i flash stock recovery back I can easily update ota or install fullota. Am I correct?
Where we can get stock recovery ????

    ** Note **


    Note:
    Once I release the whole 3.2.1 in 2 versions, first for emui 5.x with kernel 4.1, the second one for emui 8.x with 4.4 I will switch works for oreo based on emui 8.x.

    have a good day
    5
    ** Note **

    * re-uploaded the 3.1.1 Image.
    * I will pass to 3.2.1 directly since I'm on emui 8 due to bring treble for our device. and if you are on emui 8 you must flash as fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk twrp.img and this emui 8 only will not work on emui 5.0.1.
    5
    ** Note **


    * enable product and version partitions.
    * updated to 3.2.1.
    * unique bug to fix: fbe f2fs decryption to backup the whole data partition even with f2fs.
