    So my Dad got an Honor 5x for pretty cheap and it looked like a good package for the price. Decent specs for a sub $200 phone. Little did I know, EMUI sucks. Like really sucks.

    So how would I go about installing say, Cyanogen? The only experience that I have with this kind of thing is side loading the Open Beta on my OnePlus 3 which is surprisingly easy. Is installing something like Cyanogen similar at all?

    It's a lot to ask, but can somebody explain this process to me?

    It would be much appreciated :).

    Yeah I know I just wanted to know if it was at all similar to side loading the Open Beta.

    But to answer your question: it is similar only a bit more difficult as Huawei doesn't like it to open it's bootloader. You need to have an unlock code to open it. (buy or register at Honor and wait for a coupe of weeks to get it for free). For the Huawei there is a handy tool available on XDA. If I remember well this tool also works with Honor.
    But all is there in the XDA thread of Honor and Huawei
