    Hi.I have an huawei p8.I tried kingroot and luckily rooted it by one click.Now i cant replace it with superSu and i also cant uninstall the kingroot ( unroot it ) because its not a 100% root.Titanium back and so on works.but many apps cant work properly as a file (or many files ) are still read only.So it for sure needs to be rooted in a proper way.My question is,how come i could root it without asking for Bootloader unlock? do i still need it? how long do huawei take to send me the code? i have sent them an email today with the requirements.Thanks in advance

    i think you’re my last resort. logged in to huawei to unlock bootloader. got an error msg asking if i entered the imei or meid and security code correctly. sent them an email with the following response

    Dear Maddy,

    We widely appreciate your preference and we thank you for contacting us.

    We do apologize for the inconvenient, however Huawei does not provide codes to unlock the bootloader. We kindly inform you that this action can potentially “brick” the phone or in other words,

    renders the phone completely unusable and voids the warranty service and device support. We have

    no control over how unlocking the bootloader will affect your device.

    We hope you find this information useful.

    We remain at your service.

    Kind Regards.

    Please do not reply directly to this message, in case you have further questions, please re-send your

    information to “[email protected]

    The phone is locked to bell canada.

    Can you please help me sim unlock the phone?

    WHERE DO I PUT THE COMMANDS?!

  • Evan Spears

    Help, Im stuck!!!
    My phone isnt detecting in hisuite, and the adb commands arent working. When I plug the phone in, it recognizes it as an h1611 orrectly, itll let me browse files like normal, but i cant get the boot unlocker finished. Im assuming I type te adb commands in the command prompt. When I type the “adb reboot bootloader” command a window flashes for a second then goes away with no change in anything. When I type in the “fastboot oem unlock 9513960109391222” it just says waiting for device. I have the usb debugging enabled, and i tried what the hisuite said and turn on the “allow hdb” in privacy settings. Still its remains unrecognized in hisuite, and appears to do nothing at the command prompt.
    Thanks in advance!
    Evan

  • James Jones

    where do we type the commands? like what root folder do i have to be in if it’s through the command prompt?

    • Optimer

      If you are talking about command prompt then you have to be in the directory where you have installed ADB.
