Huawei announced the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, its flagship series smartphone a couple of months back and it was officially released a few weeks ago. Developers have already started working on the custom ROMs and other root based apps for the device which is evident from the fact that the SuperSu and Magisk Module necessary for rooting the device are already available.
The developer forums for the Huawei Mate 10 Pro on the XDA Developers website are already active and a senior developer at the forums, otoneiru, has already posted a method on the forum for unlocking the bootloader and rooting the Huawei Mate 10 Pro. However, the TWRP recovery for the device is currently not available but you can follow the below instructions to unlock the bootloader of your device and root it.
How to Unlock Bootloader and Root Huawei Mate 10 Pro
Before you proceed make sure that you have a Huawei account. If you don’t then you can register and create a new account here.
Now go to your Device settings and then click on about phone at the bottom. From there tap on the build number option multiple times until you unlock the developer options.
Inside the developer options settings enable the USB debugging option and then enable OEM unlock.
Now ensure that you have atleast 50% of battery left on your device and all of your data are safely backed up and then download the FunkyHuawei Root tool from here.
Once you have downloaded the root tool, extract the files by creating a new folder on the desktop of your PC for easy access.

After a few minutes, the process will be completed and the bootloader of your device will now be unlocked. Once you reboot your device you can find SuperSU installed on your device and you can flash a custom TWRP recovery as soon as it is available.
