      Hey Brasso. This is for the original P8 Lite. Do tell me if your device is rooted/unrooted, running on stock or TWRP recovery and I’ll guide you through the process

        AFAIK it’s unrooted and running on stock EMUI 4.1, Android 6.0
        If I knew what TWRP is I’d answer ;o))

          No issues, everyone needs to start somewhere 😉

          What I need you to do is install TWRP recovery on your device. Think of it as a modification to your device that lets you install all the new goodies available for your device.
          In order to do that, you need to unlock your bootloader
          To do so:
          1. Go to Settings> Build number and tap it around 7 times until ‘you are now a developer’ dialog comes up
          2. Head over to Settings> Developer Options
          3. Check “Install from Unknown Sources”, USB Debugging and OEM Unlock
          4.Download ADB and fastboot drivers for your device from here-
          5.You will also need to create a Huawei device Id if you don’t have one-
          6. Fill out the details it asks you
          7. It now asks for a product identification code, dial * # * # 1357946 # * # * and fill the IMEI code and submit.
          8. Copy the code and go over to the place where you installed your ADB drivers
          9. Hold Shift+Right click and select Open Command window here
          10. Write- adb reboot bootloader
          11. Follow up by writing – fastboot oem unlock xxxxxxxxxxxxxx. Replace all x with your key
          12. Your bootloader is now unlocked. Message me when you’ve followed the steps 🙂

   doesn’t work.
            To be able to get device ID it is necessary to receive SMS code. The only mobile area available is China. +44(UK) not available :((
