A few months back Huawei has launched its Honor View 10 a.k.a V10. The Chinese giant was tipping it as the AI(Artificial Intelligence) powered handset though in real-time usage it lacks in some segments. The handset comes powered by a Hi-Silicon Kirin 970 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM. Honor View 10 runs on a custom EMUI 8.0 based on Android 8.0. Some users are praising this custom UI while some just don’t like it. There is a way by which you can replace the stock ROM and it is through rooting. Rooting has some crazy advantages and one of the biggest is installing third-party custom ROMs. In our today’s article, we will be sharing a step by step way to root Huawei Honor View 10.
There are multiple ways to achieve root access but here we are going with the fresh Magisk method. The one big merit of this method is that it doesn’t require TWRP recovery to flash. By rooting Honor V10 one can have fun with the custom Magisk modules that offer a great level of customization.
Note: Rooting voids your handset’s warranty, we are not responsible for any bricked devices.
1.) Your device should have a minimum charge of 60-70% remaining.
2.) Your Laptop/PC should have ADB and Fastboot software installed. If you have Mac then follow the installation instruction of ADB and fastboot here.
3.) By rooting your smartphone you might end up losing all the data so don’t forget to take a complete backup of your device.
This root method is compatible with the following models:
1.) Honor V10 BKL-L09
2.) Honor V10 VKY-L29
3.) Honor V10 STF-L09
4.) Honor V10 BLA-L29
