Enable OEM unlock
Step 5: Reboot to bootloader mode
Plug HWT31 into the computer and authorize it so that
adb will work. Type command:

After HWT31 getting into bootloader mode, run unlock command:
./fastboot oem unlock ****************
**************** is the unlock passcode you got from step 2. This step will bring your HWT31 back to the initial state when you got it from the manufacturer.
Step 6: Bootup
Bootup the tablet and set it up.
Step 7: Get TWRP
Download TWRP from
This is TWRP for another Huawei device (KIWI) but it works on HWT31 also.

After flashing finishes, type:
Step 1: Get SuperSU
Step 2: Copy SuperSU to HWT31
Copy SuperSU downloaded from previous step into HWT31 memory card.
Step 3: Boot into Recovery mode
./adb reboot recovery
Step 4: Install SuperSU
After reboot into recovery mode (TWRP), you will see Install button, tap on it and navigate to SuperSU.zip copied to HWT31 from Step 2. Follow the instruction from TWRP to get root.
After installing SuperSU, you can reboot to Android and enjoy your rooted HWT31
