Honor 8 Pro Gets TWRP And Root

The Honor 8 Pro is one of the newest devices in Huawei’s portfolio. Developers should soon have a chance to create and easily distribute ROMs and kernels for the smartphone, as XDA Recognized Developer OldDroid from Team OpenKirin has provided a working TWRP build for the handset.

This TWRP 3.1.1 build for the device supports all Honor 8 Pro models and is intended to work on stock EMUI 5.x with an unlocked bootloader. You would need to decrypt /data partition to install Magisk and SuperSU as you can not install them on encrypted partition. The forum thread contains instructions on encrypting and decrypting as well, to make it easy for users to follow along whichever way they wish to go.
