Smartphones with Snapdragon SoCs are considered the best ones for modding, as there are generally many more custom ROMs and recoveries for these handsets if we compare them with the smartphones with other chipsets. But this does not mean that modding cannot be done with other phones, like the ones by Huawei with their Kirin processors. The best flagships by Honor and Huawei: Honor View 10 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro, have just received the support to the official TWRP custom recovery and LineageOS 15.1.

Thanks to the official TWRP which is now possible to install on Huawei Mate 10 Pro and Honor View 10, these phones will be able to run many custom ROMs, and LineageOS 15.1 will be among the best ones that the users will be able to install. It is worth noting that the handsets also support Project Treble since they run Android 8.0 Oreo, and it means that AOSP ROMs can be easily ported to them. There is just an issue on LineageOS 15.1 for Honor View 10 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro: the wireless display feature does not work. So, if you install this custom ROM you will not be able to connect your device to an external monitor via Wi-Fi.

According to the developer who realized the ROM for Honor View 10 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro, all the rest of the features work properly. But keep in mind that it is not an official version, even though all the features present in the official release are included. The steps to install LineageOS 15.1 on the two high-end devices are slightly different from the usual. If you want to get all the instructions to install the custom ROM, just head to the source link below.

Will you try to mod your Huawei devices or the standard EMUI 8.0 based on Android Oreo is the perfect ROM for you?
