Just recently, I worked to get official TWRP support added for the Honor 7. After doing so, I got somewhat addicted and set about arranging support for other Huawei / Honor devices, particularly those that use encryption. This proved to be something of a challenge, eventually overcome by by working out exactly how the stock recovery decryption worked on the P9. This gave which gave me the information I needed for other devices too.
I'm pleased to announce that official TWRP support was added today for 8 more Huawei / Honor devices!
The newly supported devices are:
- Honor 4X (Kirin version) aka Cherry
- Honor 5C aka Nemo
- Honor 6 aka Mogola
- Honor 6 Plus aka Pine
- Huawei Mate 8 aka Next
- Huawei Mediapad M2 8.0 aka Mozart
- Huawei P9 aka Eva
- Huawei P9 Plus aka Vienna
Official TWRP support is a living, breathing thing - the device tree will need to be updated as device ROM versions and TWRP versions change over time, as well as when fixes and improvements are introduced, but for owners of these devices, it's an important first step.
