Honor 8X Custom ROM Linage OS 17.1 JSN-L21/JSN-L22/JSN-L42/JSN-AL00 Supported

Honor 8X was one of the most hit mid-range devices released by  Huawei. In this tutorial, we are going to guide you to install Lineage OS the famous custom ROM. This guide should be helpful for all variants of Honor 8X. This ROM is based on Android 10 and needs EMUI9.0 to be installed on your phone. Huawei has changed the partition format in EMUI9.1 which does not allow the installation of custom ROMs. So in order to install custom ROM your phone needs to be rolled back to EMUI9.0. In our experience, Lineage OS was much smoother and faster than the EMUI interface. And everything seems working fine. Some screenshots of this ROM are shared below.
