Huawei P8 Lite (ALE-L21) bootloader unlock

Post Posted: Dec 26, 18 21:43

Hello,
usually unlocking bootloader wipes all the user data but I have read on XDA that some users didnt lose any data when unlocking bootloader in Huawei P8 Lite (ALE-L21). Can someone confirm this ?

Does unlocking bootloader in Huawei P8 Lite wipes the user data or not ?

Bootloader unlock does not wipe any data, but Huawei no more provides unlock codes since May 2018

@TinyBrain.. you mean that unlocking bootloader in Huawei mobile devices doesnt wipe the data ?
In many other devices unlocking bootloader wipes the user data.

How to root the P8 Lite if Huawei dont give me the code to unlock the bootloader ?

Yes, there is a bug in ALE-L21 that make the phone not to wipe itself after unlocking bootloader. In fact, it doesn't even reboot itself. Bootloader code can be read by tools like DC-Unlocker, HCU, Furious etc. No need for ADB, works even on password locked device from my experience.

Keep in mind that this is not a general rule in Huawei, just something that works on ALE-L21.

Thanks its a great info
So unlocking bootloader on this model (ALE-L21) doesnt wipe any data even if the device has Android 6 and Security Patch from 2018 right ?

Does any of this tool you mention is free to get BL code ?
I need to root the device so first I have to unlock BL.

To ask a question looks like free, but you miss something. Its your homework to first work on the info already provided and check yourself. Tell me, am I right or wrong? Your feedback is appreciated.
