I am new to Huawei phones (i have a P8lite on a bootloop) and not sure where to start. Any chance of a more in depth guide for beginners?

(If you are in a bootloop, try to boot into recovery and wipe the phone.)

1. If your bootloader is locked, unlock it. Here is how to do it.

2. After that, in bootloader mode, install TWRP recovery (this is by @Thespartann) with command
fastboot flash recovery filename.img

3. Flash b896_update.zip

4. In recovery do a full wipe (i recommend formatting internal storage too)

5. Download latest LOS build, then GApps (if you want) - ARM64, 7.1, and i recommend pico

6. Flash in this order: LOS, GApps (Then Magisk if you want root)

7. Enjoy

Edit: Thanks for the guide. I manage to reinstall android and unblock the bootloader.

Something happened to me recently that never happened to me, I installed update to b9 and then I installed the rom. The problem is that now I don't have 4g, I don't know what happened and I always do.

Hi guys,
running well LOS 14 on my P8 ale l21
just, how could I disable second sim card? I have two sim, my main one everyday, and another one with a usage of just 2 days per week for a specific activity. Don't want to get it connected to the network the rest of the time, and I don't want to put it off the device each time.
how could I disable it temporarly in LOS, withoutu disabling the main one?

btw, do you know how to allow photo recorder access on lock screen without pin code?

thank you =)

Hi guys,

just getting report regarding huawei P8 Lite Alice 21, codename ALE L21, 2015 hw release

so firstly to unlock the bootloader, dont pay for it, use potatoNV, and dont forget to add those steps (under linux) :

fastboot oem backdoor set 1
fastboot reboot-bootloader
fastboot oem lock-state info
fastboot oem get-bootinfo
fastboot oem get-lockstate

In case of further issues with bootloader unlocking, just know that you can get in touch with the potatonv dev on the corrseponding telegram support channel, he might be back to you if you have a serious feedback. Github (or the other plateform I never remember) works too, to show your problems with huawei models.


as Im experiencing the LineageOS 14 release, Andro 7.1.2 20210711 (marty/darkjoker), I report the following :

A/ wifi problems : sometimes, when I airplane mode or just turn off wifi, it's just impossible to get it on again, I have to completely restart the phone. I don't do anything specific, except Im out of rang or just turn it off from menu or airplane mode. But very often it can't be turned on back if I don't reboot the phone

B/ power, restart..
1 of 10 attempts of just shutdown the phone by using the button then menu works. 9 of 10 attemps it's ust shows the "shutting down" screen forever, last time it took 2 hours of "shutting down" but did not. Had to salvage restart it by holding ten seconds the power button.
Btw, if the P8Lite running LOS14 is plugged in USB, just know that it cant stay powered of for a long times, after ten minutes lineageos just power on automatically, even if you dont touch the phone ;)
Btw the only way to poweroff the phone is to restart it (powerof button almost never works), then at encryption-unlocking code screen to power it off normally, but if you let it on the usb cable it will automatically poweron back after a while.

C/ unlock screen problems :

sometimes when the phone is on and locked, I just try to enter my PIN. numbers works. Then to validate. Then it freeze. Then it's very funny to see that it's doing nothing anymore, that only emergency button and dialpad for unlocking works but not the validate code button one : and even if the button of number works, it doesnt mark them on the PIN code field! As for the wifi problem, the only way to solve this looks like to poweroff and reboot the phone..


D/ just see few days ago the camera works, front and rear, but can't record videos..

In addition, just know I use on daily life twilight to get my eyes in a better way..dunno if it can cause issues.



ps: does this one is ready/working for P8Lite2015?
