[Firmwares] Huawei Ascend P1 U9200

1 post in this topic


Original Firmwares

Since I got my Ascend P1 I've been playing around with it alot.

Here's my list of official firmwares for the Ascend P1.


I am not responsible for any bricked devices.

Software downloads

TWRP- (7.0 MB)


MD5: 8e95c08d8bb33bf6e393a558c88d611f

cwm_touch_recovery_viva_beta.zip (5.8 MB)


MD5: cc13117567ad2c85be408c4ab2fdbdcf

CWM- (7.0 MB)


MD5: bc8dbd969e301d49289f24c93872c6f0

SuperSU package with Busybox

The package is at Step 4 on this thread.


Root access on all firmwares (Ice Cream Sandwich + Jelly Bean) using TWRP

When you've flashed one of your official Huawei firmwares you need to do this.

  1. Flash Teamwin Recovery onto your Huawei Ascend P1
  2. Reboot into TWRP
  3. Go to the "Mount" menu and mount System.
  4. Then go to the Reboot menu and reboot the system.
  5. When it detects you are not rooted TWRP will ask if you want to root.
  6. Swipe to do so and let it boot back into the system.
  7. When done just hit the SuperSU icon and let it setup for the first time. Either by downloading a flashable zip or by going to the Play Store.
  8. After that you've got a rooted device.

Root access on all Huawei Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.X) firmwares using CWM

Now to get root access on the Ascend P1 I've done it in a couple of different ways.

Download the SuperSU package with Busybox and place it on your external SD card (The card you can put into the side of the Ascend P1)

The easiest way for me was to boot ClockWorkMod Recovery from fastboot.

You need to have ADB and fastboot drivers set up and activated USB debugging on your device.

When that is done you can do some command lines to check the device is recognized and ready to go.

Step 1:

Launch a Command Promt and go to the directory where your ADB is setup.

Step 2:

Connect your device to the computer and make sure USB debugging is activated under the Developers options.

Step 3:

Type in:

ADB devices

and you should get a long unique ID of your device.

Step 4:

Type in:

ADB reboot bootloader

Step 5:

When the phone has rebooted into bootloader (There will just be a Huawei logo) check if the device is responding by typing:

fastboot devices if it's not you need to install the fastboot driver (Android ADB Interface).

Step 6:

If it's there you need to boot to the new CWM recovery by placing the CWM recovery image (cwm_touch_recovery_viva_beta.img) in the same library as your fastboot folder and type:

fastboot boot cwm_touch_recovery_viva_beta.img

Then your phone will reboot into CWM recovery where you can chose the SuperSU package with Busybox zip file and flash it.

That will gain root to your phone.

Step 7 (Optional):

When you're in the CWM recovery you can backup your entire device so you always can get back to it if you need to.

This is done in the back and recovery menu.

HOW-TO Flash these different regions.

If you're coming from a different region firmware than the one you want to flash, you have to do some preparations before it will flash.

This is due to a verification in the recovery and build.prop.

So for this to work you need to have root access on your current firmware.

When you flash a different region firmware the recovery checks the build.prop for matching regions.

The relevant part is at the bottom an looks like this.












ro.build.description=U9200-user 4.0.3 HuaweiU9200 C185B103 ota-rel-keys,release-keys


Here you must replace all the current build details which in this case is U9200-1V100R001C185B103 and if you want to move to U9200-1V100R001C00B226 you need to replace it with that or any of the other region build numbers. I will add CWM flashable zip files for the different regions later. So here is the edited version.











ro.build.description=U9200-user 4.0.3 HuaweiU9200 [COLOR="YellowGreen"]C00B226[/COLOR] ota-rel-keys,release-keys


Now with that done you need to flash the recovery.img from the build you want to move to.

I will supply the recovery.img files later.

I've put some recovery.img in some of the packages. But will upload them separately later when I've extracted them all.

Now this is very similar to what you did when rooting.

Step 1:

Do a reboot to bootloader again by typing:

ADB reboot bootloader

Step 2:

Check the device is there by typing:

Fastboot devices

Step 3:

Flash the recovery by typing:

Fastboot flash recovery recovery.img (the recovery name can vary)

Step 4:


Fastboot reboot

Let it boot up and then go to:

Settings->Storage->Software Upgrade->SD card Upgrade->Confirm->Upgrade

This will erase all apps and settings, so remember to backup your stuff.

There is also a force upgrade mode which you can enter by holding down Volume Up and Volume Down keys right after the vibration when the device boots up.
