  2. Hello once again.
    This method worked for me at my second attempt. My VNS L31C33B370 is now rooted.
    Now I want to make him work as a dual SIM. I have another P9 Lite With VNS L31C432B418 working as a dual SIM.
    Now I need to put this one also as a dual sim, can you please help me?
    Can I use the patch file C342OEM that you have in your other link and use it? But then you have also DUAL SIM firmware B160 from VNS-L31 Firmware Link that is not working the download…
