Huawei Mate 20 Pro
Don't want to pay the 5% Paypal fee?
We can take other payment methods:
- Western Union (4% discount)
- Bank transfer
Contact us for details.
- If you choose "Rooted" in the purchase options, the phone will come pre-rooted. See below for a description of what that means.
- Definition of root: The phone will be shipped in a state where running the command "whoami" from an adb shell in normal system mode, will produce the result of "root". A root shell via ADB is also accessible in recovery mode, but the "whoami" command is not available in recovery mode.
- When accessing the phone by ADB shell either in recovery or from within the system, you will have full root privileges.
- No root management software like Magisk or SuperSU is included. We can't guarantee whether those will work, as it depends on the makers of those software.
- It is not possible to flash system images or custom recovery from fastboot. However it is possible to flash various partitions of the phone directly with the dd command from the root shell.
- Root is accessible from ADB only at this point. You could use this ADB root access to install root managers on the phone, but that is not included. Unless you install the su binary and a root manager, you can only access root from ADB.
- We can't guarantee various Android apps requiring root will work, as it depends on the makers of those software.
- We can't guarantee that you will keep root privileges after installing any kind of system update. To be sure to keep root, do not update your system, at all.
Important Warnings about Root
- WARNING!! By installing a system update, even one you receive by Huawei via OTA, you may lose root permanently. If you lose root, it is not possible to regain it. If you need to keep root, do not install any system updates.
- WARNING!! With root privelages it is possible to render the phone inoperable. We can usually help you recover in these cases, but it's not guaranteed. After recovering, you may not be able to regain root privileges.
- WARNING!! All use of the phone, including its root privilages, are at your own risk.
- WARNING!! Having root priveleges may make it impossible to install certain programs such as Netflix, use certain banking apps, or use Android Pay. If you decide you no longer want to have root, we can help you 'un-root' your device, but once it is lost, root privelege cannot be regained.
- WARNING!! Again, once root privelege is lost, it cannot be regained.
