Be sure You have unlocked Your bootloader before.
I don't have this variant of P8, it was already tested but still please report any issues and I'll try to fix them.
Remember it's for Kirin version only.


INSTALLATION:
Just flash it via Fastboot and You should be fine. There's also a possibility to flash it via 'dd' in adb shell, it works too.

DOWNLOADS:
Go!!!!!

CHANGELOG:
v1:
- Initial release
v2:
-fixed resolution
-fixed brightness settings

CREDITS:
- TeamWin for making TWRP, of course
- @jniklast for custom graphics.c for newer Kirin SoCs

Edit: Also, the report button is all you need in the future. No need for drama in the threads. Or use pm's. ;)

Thanks alot for the Recovery. I got my phone today and have in the mean time asked Huawei to release the kernel source for ALE-21/23 and they have replyed to me. Here are the kernel sources: http://emui.huawei.com/en/plugin.php?id=hwdownload&mod=detail&mid=103. As soon as I have time I will look into building a custom rom for the P8 Lite :)

Nice that You appreciate it.

By the way, I was said that there are some issues with making a backup to external storage, could someone confirm it?

    Update: The version for Kirin has been tested and it works, so You can flash it and test more without being afraid that You would break anything ;) Meanwhile I'm still waiting for the report from Qcom variant user.

    Kirin version is okay, but Qcom version made issues so I won't release it.
