You first need to get unlock code from Huawei and then root it using TWRP.

Rooting is completely safe as long as you have a backup with you and follow the steps properly.

Usually, Huawei bootloader is locked and you must need to unlock the bootloader before you can root your device. Just go to the Huawei website to obtain unlock code:
https://emui.huawei.com/en/plugin.php?id=unlock&mod=unlock&action=apply

Huawei will ask you to create an account before providing you with Huawei P9 Lite bootloader unlock code. Note it down in a safe place.

:warning: Unlocking bootloader will automatically factory reset your phone. Please backup your data before proceeding.

  1. You can use SRK Tool for Huawei Phone to first unlock the bootloader.
  2. Then using the same tool you can install TWRP custom recovery for Huawei P9 phone.
  3. Now, using TWRP recovery, you can flash/install SuperSU zip file which will successfully root your Huawei P9 Lite.

Good luck! :wink:
