    This is only for Honor 8 (FRD)
    Code:
    OpenKirin presents unofficial TWRP for stock EMUI 5.x with decryption support.
    Intended for usage on stock emui 5.x in combination with unlocked bootloader and
    modded boot image with disabled dm-verity (depending on what you want to do).

    Code:
    [COLOR="red"][B]WARNING:[/B] since 3.1.0-2 update we've enabled image flashing to special partitions -
    not just /recovery or /boot partition.
    That means your device could be bricked in a few seconds if you do not pay attention
    or don't know what you're doing. (Noobs please stay away out of this section!)[/COLOR]


    Installation Instructions
    Code:
    1. Enter fastboot mode on unlocked device
    2. flash recovery using the following command: fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.1.1-1-frd.img
    3. reboot to recovery!

    Rooting Methods
    Code:
    [B][U]1. Official SuperSU (not just 2.82+)[/U][/B]
    1. Ensure you are running stock kernel from b380+
    2. Tick the option "Keep vendor partition mounted" inside OpenKirin Settings
    3. download and install [URL="www.supersu.com/download"]official SuperSU[/URL]
    4. Enjoy!
    
    [B][U]2. Custom SuperSU[/U][/B]
    1. Make sure the device running stock EMUI 5.x boot.img
    2. flash this modded SuperSU 2.79: [URL="https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxWP2gF_0Bd_UmQ2Zm9ZRGxBTUE"]download here[/URL]
    3. enjoy root :)
    [COLOR="red"][B]NOTE:[/B][/COLOR] this is for every device (except kirin 960 based) running emui 5.x without loop support.
    
    [B][U]3. Magisk[/U][/B]
    1. ensure you are running a kernel from b380 or later
    2. flash magisk
    3. enjoy root & safetynet (read note)
    [B][COLOR="red"]NOTE:[/COLOR][/B] Magisk Hide is a known problem on Huawei/Honor devices.
    Make sure you are not rebooting/turning off your device with Magisk Hide enabled!
    You may face a broken fingerprint scanner, do not worry,
    simply disable magisk hide and reboot - fps works again!

    Thanks for putting the effort into making and sharing this TWRP with us.
    The download link isn't working for me.

    Thanks

    On a mobile the hyperlink doesn't show so there is nothing to click on

    Got it to download.
    Just had to open the page in a browser.
    Thanks buddy

    The link is working.

    Great work @surdu_petru!!!!! once again!

    Regarding this. I already have previous nougat twrp + root (although no access to data partition) Can I just flash this one on top? Do I need to format or reinstall something afterwards?

    [EDIT]
    Just replace previous 3.0.2 for nougat and everything is working: root and access to data & system partition! Enormous work!!!!

    Another thing, you mention a "modded boot image with disabled dm-verity" can you explain what's this and for what is it used for?

    Thanks once again!

    I have flashed twrp 3.0.3 FRD at my Mate 8. I able to enter twrp but in 5 seconds my phone automatic restart. If I quickly check my internal storage. It's decrypted. So means it's working.

    Is there any chance to support mate 8 too? Been using Twrp 3.0.2 FRD from beginning and has no issue.

    Thanks in advance.

    If u have any chance a log would be needed. And if u can Unmount data before reboot it might help to prevent recovery from being killed

    Also there might be some issues due to different devices loading recovery faster? I can't answer on this. You'll have to wait or participate in helping out testing builds from devs

    no didn´t format it , with the other twrp , i dont have any issues :confused:
    Where you able to use data partition in twrp earlier versions means u wiped data partition so it's decrypted. This mounts data to dm-0 if decrypted. Which the other version never did
