So are you guys all unlock the bootloader already?
or just flash the twrp in the fastboot and install the rom?

You have to unlock the bootloader to be able to flash anything on the tablet. The bootloader is the software firewall (lockdown) of the system. Unlocking it turns off all security to be able to flash recoveries and images.

Currently, DCUnlocker is the only way to unlock the bootloader of this tablet. Its around $4 in credits to unlock the bootloader

I gave the latest build of LineageOS on openkirin.net a try - and what can I say: It works just as intended:

* Bluetooth works
* DRM-Info Security Level L1
* Amazon Prime HD, Netflix HD, SkyGo HD, Eurosportplayer HD
* Rooted With latest Magisk from beta channel in MagiskManager --> AdAway (yay!)
* Android Patch Level August 2018

Still haven't found a working TWRP that can deal with encryption, but since Magisk could be installed through its Manager app I don't really see any real need for this.

So, finally, this is it.

Well the only reason decryption is needed in TWRP is so that people can backup the data partition. Other than that, there really isnt much need to support it.

Hm wonder why I got Security Level 3 on mine when I did it. Though I did install resurrection remix, perhaps that's why?

*EDIT* Ah I see, there's a new version that fixes the DRM! Cool!

How come you post this, when the only mention of Mediapad in that thread is you saying that it doesn't work (and now @Ivanbarker, since you sent him there with this link)?

Yeah, no worries, I ended up installing the unofficial TWRP from this forum for the M5. It seems to work decent.

Hey,

On stock I had Webvine L1, but on every GSI I tested I get L3.
I know L1 is working on GSI, on my Motorola its working, but I don't know how I can get it to work an my mediapad.

Cover is magnetic. M5 has magnetic sensor. Better off moving to Havoc or RR ROMs as they are up to date more than lineage

Cool, what about bugs, why is this still in beta?

Im currently on an other GSI but I thing about switching, cuz not every thing is working.
- Can not reach nab- and statusbar in full screen apps like games
- Battery usage data are not available

Are these thing working?
And what's about gapps, are they include? Google Play service and stuff?

The only bug I have come across is the proximity sensor not working, aside from that, it's all working great, full stock Google functionality. Had to install Google apps I wanted, but that's no bad thing, not taking up system space.

Hey,
a few days ago I installed OpenKirin LineageOS and it is the best GSI Rom I've tested, all problems I had with other GSIs like AOSP Phh-Treble and Resurrection Remix Official GSI are gone here:
- Finally DRM is working
- Google Play Store/Protect certified out of box
- The problem to reach the NavBar in fullscreen Apps is gone
- Battery usage data are working

Only thing that's not working is to charge the Tablet while powered off.
I tried the fix by Dil3mm4 "[HUAWEI] Offline charge fix for every Huawei Treble Enabled Phone" and I did it like descriptive, but it is not fixing it for me.

Is there another fix, maybe especially for the Mediapad?

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 8.1 (Oreo), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

    What's working :
    • Boots
    • Wifi
    • Bluetooth
    • Camera ( Videos And Photos )
    • Video Playback
    • Audio ( Record and Playback )
    • Sensors
    • GPS

    What's not working :
    • You tell me :)

    Instructions :
    • Make a Backup of your Internal Storage
    • Download the latest build and gapps
    • Flash my TWRP Build
    • Make a full Wipe if you coming from StockRom, then Format Data (Attention this will wipe your Internal Storage)
    • Reboot to recovery
    • Flash my Remove Encryption file: Download if you want to backup your data afterwards when you installed LineageOS
    • Flash the latest build and gapps
    • Reboot
    Downloads :
    Reporting Bugs
    • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
    • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
    • If it is a random reboot, grab /sys/fs/pstore/console-ramoops and /sys/fs/pstore/dmesg-ramoops-0. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
    • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log
    Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues. Any bug not reported in the bug report format below may be ignored.

    I was unable to get this ROM to work with SHT-W09 (8" WIFI only, EU model). It got stuck in a boot loop. So I had to reload the stock firmware (it was painful to find a method).

    I used the 'russian website' to find the link to the official Huawei firmware and downloaded from Huawei's servers. I took firmware 8.0.0.163 (It was published at a later date than 8.0.0.168 yet has a lower version number - wierd?) Double check that the firmware corresponds to your model SHT-W09/SHT-AL09 etc - I made this mistake. I guess that the region is also important - for EU I took C432.

    To recover to stock firmware I used the TWRP ROM in schwabe93's other post (https://forum.xda-developers.com/mediapad-m5/development/recovery-twrp-3-2-2-1-t3813825). To reload the stock firmware I followed the instructions in Tutorial 2 https://forum.xda-developers.com/p10/how-to/guide-manual-updgrade-to-update-oreo-t3758286. I copied the oreoupdater folder to an external SD card which was formatted as exFAT. In TWRP file manager I also copied from the external SD to the root of the internal SD.

    In TWRP I started the zip flash from the internal SD as per the tutorial 2 instructions. It rebooted and installed the 163 firmware.

    I can't remember exactly what I did after the update was completed, but it was something along the lines of: rebooting several times, using the built in EMUI recovery to low level format, then reboot then clear cache then wipe data then reboot a few more times.

    If the EMUI recovery doesn't work after installing the stock ROM then you can try using fastboot to reload the recovery from the img files that you extracted from the full firmware zip file i.e.:
    fastboot flash recovery_kernel RECOVERY_KERNEL.img
    fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk RECOVERY_RAMDISK.img
    fastboot flash recovery_vbmeta RECOVERY_VBMETA.img

    Hope this helps!

    Also for the benefit of others, it took me a while to work this out:

    Reboot - hold down the power button.
    Fastboot - As soon as it boots, and just before the mediapad screen, hold the volume down button WITH the USB cable connected.
    Recovery - Hold down the power button and volume up WITHOUT the USB cable connected.

    I thought so. That's the reason why I'll return my M5

    It really is a piece of trash, this tablet, and **** Huawei for being ignorant greedy pricks, taking our community's hard work, and then stealing our personal property through bootloader locks. It should be illegal under right-to-repair and personal property ownership legislation. But, I digress.

    You can fix the pixelation on the latest OmniROM builds by enabling "Disable HW overlays" in the developer options. Note the toggle isn't permanent; you'll need to do something with Magisk or use Tasker + Secure Settings (on boot) if you don't want to toggle it manually each time.

    Can you send me the link to the RR rom download page, thanks.



    https://openkirin.net/download/

    It says beta but everything works and no crashing. This will work even with custom recovery even though the page instructions say use stock recovery
