Installing TWRP Recovery and Rooting are among the important things if you’re trying to make your Honor 10 most of it.

Once the TWRP recovery is installed, you can flash the Magisk one-click zip file to gain root access on your Honor 10. Rooting your Android smartphones removes the restrictions and limitations from your device thereby making most of it. For example, Honor 10 users can install root-only apps once the device is successfully rooted. It is worth important to note that rooting voids company warranty, but there is no need to worry about as users can claim back warranty by flashing stock firmware again.

To remind you, Honor 10 was announced in April this year featuring 5.84-inch Full HD+ 2.5D curved glass display with a notch and 19:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, there is an Octa-Core HiSilicon Kirin 970 10nm SoC coupled with Mali G72 MP12 GPU and 6GB of RAM. Other features include a 16MP + 24MP dual rear cameras, 24MP front cameras, Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.1 on top (upgradable to Android 9.0 Pie-based EMUI 9.0), and a 3400mAh battery.
