I just bought a Huawei Mate 8 two weeks ago and now I need to root it – as some of apps require root access or I can't use the app. I have tried towelroot and iroot, both didn't work. please help.

    Add the directions in your answer, in case the link dies in the future. Jan 18, 2016 at 9:01
  • And with the directions, the name of the tool as well please – as when the link dies, it's not only the directions which are lost (as @TamoghnaChowdhury already pointed out), but the entire answer gets useless, not holding a single helpful detail then.

  • Here emui.huawei.com/en/plugin.php?id=unlock you get free bootloader code, from Huawei. Must wait two weeks after phone is bought. Voids warranty. Do at your own risk. Also open the link from your desktop PC, not phone.
