Since the release of Android 9 Pie stable version, developer communities are busy porting the build for many old and new devices. A ported version of Android 9.0 Pie (Pixel Experience ROM v9.0) is now available for Huawei P8 Lite 2017 edition. This custom ROM will bring Google Pixel and Android 9.0 features to the device. Check out our installation guide below.

Android 9 Pie update schedule for Huawei and Honor phone is not yet announced by the company. In addition, there is little chance to get the update on P8 Lite (2017). However, Pixel Experience custom ROM brings Android 9.0 (Pie) right now with all the goodies of Google’s latest OS.



Developed by the XDA senior member Askuccio_DROID, the Pixel Experience ROM for Huawei P8 Lite (2017) is beta, but everything is working fine like Wi-fi, RIL, Mobile data, Sensors, Bluetooth, etc. The only known bugs are Wi-Fi Hotspot and Camera aren’t working.

To install this ROM, your device should be on EMUI 8 or later. As you all know, unlocked bootloader and TWRP recovery is necessary for installing this build.
