Mine is also from 2017 (221708) and it's rooted now. All the other available TWRP versions did not work. Here is what i did:

1. Get the Stock android recovery for your device and TWRP(2016 version).
2. Follow this video: https://youtu.be/rFnG7fso9HE
3. Connect the tablet to PC and boot into fastboot mode (Windows cmd: adb reboot fastboot)
4. fastboot boot YourNewTwrp.img (flashing causes bootloops for me so don't use: fastboot flash recovery ...img)
5. after TWRP boots, download supersu(google it). Use command: adb push su.zip /sdcard
6. In TWRP go to install and navigate to the location where su.zip is stored (/sdcard in my case)
7. Flash and reboot the tablet

That did it for me. It gave me some error that /data couldnt be mounted. I was a little worried, but after it rebooted i checked it with ROOT checker app from playstore and installed some apps that required root. No issues at all.

Anyways try the above and see if it works for you too. Good luck!

Hello rafnold,
I tried your method but i'm stuck in etap 4, how do i boot into twrp?
I succes to boot into fast mode with the command adb reboot fastboot but i don't understand what's next step.

Thank you for helping me.

I tried several others methods but one time i got no touch screen, one time i got no wifi and one time i got bootloop! i'm surely too dumb to do that :-)

I also have PQ32G221708 and have tried the above method with twrp versions 3.0.1.0, 3.0.2.0 and 2.8.6.0.  I can then also enter recovery and can access the various TWRP versions (incl. touchscreen), however when I reboot the tablet it gets stuck on the Chuwi logo!  I have tried installing various supersu versions and also not installing any and rebooting...it still ends up on the chuwi logo when rebooting.  Can anyone help???
