You can root your Honor V10 smartphone on the stock firmware without erasing your data by flashing a boot.img file provided in this article. With this method, you don't need special software like Magisk and Xposed to root your Honor V10; you just need to flash the provided boot image normally.
This tweak was developed by dawnc, a member of the XDA Forums, and he has tested it on the 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM China Edition of the Huawei Honor V10 with the model number AL20COO running on the B132 stock firmware. You can try it on other variants of the Honor V1-, but only at your own risk.
As with many others, you need to have fastboot and ADB installed on your computer before you can carry out this tweak. Here are some guides to help you with that:
Download the file below and place it in the same folder in which you installed fastboot.
- boot-b132-root3.img Download
- Turn on developer settings on your smartphone.
- Power off the phone.
- Boot into fastboot by holding the power and volume down buttons together for about 6 seconds.
- Navigate to the folder in which you installed fastboot on your computer.
- Right-click on an empty space in the window while holding the shift key on your keyboard. Then select Open command window here to launch a command prompt for that file location.
- Run the following command in the command prompt:
fastboot flash ramdisk boot-b132-root3.img.
- Now run
in the command line to reboot the smartphone.
When the smartphone reboots, your Honor V10 will have root access. That way, you can root Honor V10 without erasing data, and it can be done on the stock ROM with very little processes.
