Dear supporters,
I have a Huawei P8 (GRA-L09) build number: GRA-L09C423B520, EMUI 4.0.3.
My device have official Android Marshmallow installed with latest OTA updates.
Recently I'm getting notifications from some APPs I need to keep using that I'm running Android v. 6.0 and have to upgrade to Android v. 7.0 at least to continue using them .. and as I have no money to purchase a new devioce, I was trying to get Android ROM 7.0 on my device, this procedure needed to firstly ROOT my device;
I've tried many of your forum guides to ROOT my device, no success! Mayby because my device has a higher build number that what described in your guides! I don't know ...
Steps I managed to successfully finish:
- Installed most recent USB driver on my Windows 10 desktop
- Installed adb/fastboot on my desktop
- Unloacked my device (Huawei p8) bootloader
- Installed twrp-3.1.1-0-grace image on my device
- Not succeeded to install superSU 2.82 via TWRP on my device;
So I'm stuck now! I can't go further installing Android 7.0 Nougat custom ROM ...
Can anyone help me please?
Thanks ...

Well you can download magisk manager from here: magiskmanager dot com then drag the zip file to your phone and startup twrp then install then select magisk manger.zip and flash it away :)
