U can forget cm10.1 and cwm/twrp coz the phone has huawei own chipset wich has bootloader locked and no unlocking as my ascend P6 its called hisilicon k3v2 as i remember.

Maybe you can access to the bootloader with an

adb reboot bootloader ?

Thanks for the comments so far although it saddens me. Do you know if 4.2. 2 or 4. 3 is comming to this phone?

It works on Windows 7.

 

But reading other posts I would pay to get the phone unlocked before doing this or the phone may not be unlocked.
