Hi,I've got the root and the B109 rom installed, but would like to upgrade to the B213, however CWM can't flash an UPDATE.APP - how do I get this on?
UPDATE.APP means its the official firmware, so if you flash it you will lose the root etc.You need LeSongs custom B113 Rom which is on the root and recovery post here - http://johnnyparanoia.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/how-to-install-root-and-recovery-on.htmlYou will have to get it from the Chinese forum because some miserable bast*rd has had my Mediafire account suspended so until I get that sorted none of my links will work :(
Uploaded it here - https://hotfile.com/dl/162916332/9274ad8/anzhi-p1-b113-lesong.zip.htmlfor now :)
Hi, I have a different firmware version on my U9200 than those listed above. it's U9200-1V100R001AUSC00B100. If anyone wants a copy, post here a link detailing how I save it and i'll share it.
Hello, I have a similar firmware, it's a U9200-1V100R001CHEC123B100. From Switzerland.
i have this too how i can install this firmware
Thanks.What is the difference in b113 and b213. Is it just china vs uk? My girlfirend has a UK one with 213 on and it has GAPPS native etc. Mine is chinese and it won't do an official update for some reason.Your guide didn't work for me and when I looked into it the OneKey was failing becuase "su" isn't on the device so I root'ed it with the other guide on XDA and then it worked to put the B109 on and GAPPS. I had to manually install the Blaze device as ADB Adapter interface too.Thanks for the response anyway, great work.
Hi guys,I just got one U9200 with U9200-1 V100R001CHNC00B113(China General) firmware but I would like to install the normal version V100R001C00B213(Normal)(05010XWP), how to proceed?

Hi guys,I have a big problem with my Ascend p1 / T9200 V100R001CHNC01B215 /that I bought in Hong Kong. The thing is that I can not here / in Europe - Czech Republic / log in to Googleplay and by that I cant absolutely impossible to use my phone. I can not install normal version ......219 - with your manual!? My phone doesnt restart :-(( Can you please advise me what to do? It seems as though the phone was blocked or do not know. Thansk Alex
Hi Johnny, i have installed V100R001C00B219 latest version from huawei web, i want to root it, can you please help ?
It looks like the rooting method for B113 and B115 here - http://johnnyparanoia.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/how-to-root-huawei-ascend-p1-u9200.html should work.Also Unlock Root - http://www.unlockroot.com/Also might work and would be easier lol
Hi Johnny, Thanks but unfortunately both options did not work for Huawei ascend P1 with B219.
Ok, been researching and found something on a Thai website that might work for you :)First follow the instructions for Android Control here - http://johnnyparanoia.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/how-to-manually-flash-recovery-image.html(ignore the recovery image stuff)Once the Android Control is extracted etc. Download this - http://www.mediafire.com/?yufje6b3u5is8qband extract to the same folder.Make sure debug is enabled and then plug in your phone and run the 'Root_P1D1.exe' from inside your AndroidControl folder, Click root and it should work :S The original Thai post is here - http://www.papayatop.com/29/how-to-root-clockworkmod-huawei-ascend-p1-u9200/and says to install android SDK (which I don't thinks really needed if you use Android Control) and has a pack for download which I've mirrored here -http://www.mediafire.com/?ctlwztycoekbe4hjust in case its needed. Unfortunately with it being in Thai, I can't tell if its been tested with B219 or if it needs testing with it, Google translate is confusing at times lol
Just tested this with B103 and after reboot bam Superuser app apears. Thank you alot. Now time for HD youtube yay
Hi Johnny,the last one (Thai) worked by using Window XP only , it was successfully rooted my phone but unfortunately it change the complete language & setup of recovery mood in chinese, now when i boot my phone in recovery mood, the "update.app" in dload folder does not work naymore, now i installed MIUI ROM and its working fine. could u please help me to change the recovery mood language back to English ?
Yeah no problem :)Just follow the Manually Flash Recovery Guide here - http://johnnyparanoia.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/how-to-manually-flash-recovery-image.htmlAnd use this image to flash it - http://www.mediafire.com/?pdaj3bohegu0voxIts an English version of the CWM Touch recovery.
Hi Johnny, I hope it can work but the problem is when i connect Ascend P1 with laptop and restart in boot mood, the blaze (USB) driver does not install by pulse driver folder or automatically from window, so phone is not responding to command prompt. could you please help to find USB driver for U9200 ?
Huawei U8510 (Blaze) Drivers here - http://www.mediafire.com/?73to6mk7igu98luor Huawei Handset USB Drivers here - http://www.mediafire.com/?dav9rtayiyciv95You should be able to use either of them to get the correct drivers :)
Hi Johnny, Thanks for your effort but sorry to say both drivers does not work for Window (XP,7).
Then I can only suggest the SDK way to install OEM ADB Drivers that should work.Download and install SDK here - http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.htmlAnd then follow the guide here - http://developer.android.com/tools/extras/oem-usb.html#WinXpOr scroll to the Vista, Windows 7 etc to install the Google driver.
Hi Johnny, Thanks finally i manage to change bootloader in English version, but now i want to move back from MIUI ROM to ICS, please support how to install ICS again.thanks
Hi Johnny,Now i manage to install " clockworkmod recovery v220.127.116.11" and using MIUI ROM but now i cannot install ICS by this recovery mode, i tried same method to put dload (update.app) on SD card but failed to run setup.how i can install back 1. Android system recovery2. ICS thanks
You will need to flash the stock recovery to the phone and then use the dload method, there is a problem with the cutom recovery's that cause official updates to return a 'version check' error.What firmware were you originally on?What firmware are you now trying to install?And I'll try extract the recovery.img for you :)
Hi Johnny,Thanks for your reply, originally it was chinese version, then i upgrade it to huawei official 219, then i manage to upgraqde CWW and currently working MIUI ROM, now i want to install huawei official V100R001C00B219. Appreciate your kind effort.
Hi Johnny,any update ? appreciate your effort.thanks
Hi Johnny,Can i have V100R001C00B219 recover.img ?
Yeah sorry, as I posted on MadModder.co.uk I'm having to sort out all the firmware downloads because Mediafire has introduced 50Gb limits on free accounts (which I've already exceeded lol)But since your problem occurred before mine :) here it is - http://www.mediafire.com/?klt9r8tau4wo4ca Just flash as you would a custom recovery, the guides on here under the Android General menu.Enjoy :)
Hi Johnny, thanks i successfully managed to restore recovery but still i cannot use normal method to install ICS, by using dload. i can enter in recovery but cannot installation does not start automatically and not even click on dload. pls advice.
Hi Mate, any update ?
Could you please post the latest (B219) firmware for U9200 because the ZIP file on the Huawei official web site is corrupted...Thanks,Bastek
Take the easy one first :)Added, see above.
Hi I just bought the U9200 in China but now im back in the UK I want to be able to use google play. Would I be able to swtich from the current B115 China general build to the B219 General version? Im new to android and so im not sure if handsets are locked to their original build. Does the B219 general build have access to google play? If I am able to change, i assume I follow the http://johnnyparanoia.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/how-to-restore-stock-firmware-on-huawei_20.html ?thanks!
Yeah that shouldn't be a problem :)And yep just follow the guide http://johnnyparanoia.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/how-to-restore-stock-firmware-on-huawei_20.htmland you shouldn't have any problems with it. If you want to root it and install recovery just follow the guides on here (look in the comments above for how to root this B219 firmware)
Hi Jhonny,I was surprised, after googling finally I found this easy to use tutorial. Thanks for sharing.I have firmware version B220 and I want to use USB OTG(On The Go) but after googling it said must be rooted. Do you have tutorial how to root firmware B220?Thanks so much.
Hi Jhonny,In my P1 the build number is U9200-1V100R001CHNC00B118. I tired your method to restore stock firmware V100R001C00B219(Normal)(05010XWP) & V100R001C00B213(Normal)(05010XWP) - both gave me error saying chk version - Update fail - i tired both methodsI am not from china. I am in India. I need proper rom which i can flash on my device. This device, is for my sister, so i dont want to install custom roms. Thank you for your help
I have the U9200-1V100R001CHNC00B118 which I can upload for you but I'm guessing you want access to Google Play which won't be on there.I can't at the moment say why its saying check version? It should work.I can only suggest that you root the B118 firmware and install custom recovery, then flash the gapps package.Or give me some time to ask around and see if I can find out why the firmware updates are not working for you and I'll post back here.
I have rooted my mobile. But when i tired to enter fastboot it hangs in the huawei logo itself. Dont know wat to do.Have installed hsuite for connecting the phone to my computer. Also downloaded anriod SDK. The devices is listed when I type "adb devices"
I have installed the recovery now.. Where can i find the gapps package. thanks for your help
I installed some gapps package which i found online and now my phone got stuck with the andriod logo. It tells me to touch it but when i do it , it gave me a error saying setup wizard falied. I tired data and chace wipining in recovery. Now the same error comes but in Chinese.Can you kindly upload U9200-1V100R001CHNC00B118 and the original recovery file, i will try to do a complete reinstall of the software. or is there any other way i can get it working.Thank u very much.
here are images of my phone now.https://www.dropbox.com/s/n1ayt18p77...818_173140.jpghttps://www.dropbox.com/s/zxyxf8v3mf...818_173130.jpg
I have added the original B118 Rom see above and have also extracted the recovery here - http://www.mediafire.com/?2jkvi0ankq4suy5You will need to use the guide here to flash it to your phone - http://johnnyparanoia.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/how-to-manually-flash-recovery-image.htmlUnfortunately I don't own a P1 so I cannot check the recovery image however I think it will be fine and you can always flash the custom one back if not :)
Yeah i am downloading the above rite now.. will let u know how it goes!!Can u post link of gapps package?Thank you very much for your help
The Gapps package you need is here - http://goo.im/gapps/gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zipHope it helps :)
Hey thanks man.. I was able to flash to the stock firmware... And installed Gapps package.. Now i am able to access Playstore.Have given the phone to my sis now.Thanks a ton for your help.
i have the original U9200-1V100R001CHNC00B118 I tired your method to restore stock firmware V100R001C00B219(Normal)(05010XWP), gave me error saying chk version - Update fail - i tired both methods.What can i do to obtain google play?I am with the factory original chinese firmware....how can i install gapps? do i need to root first?can you give me please detailed steps?
Do you have a custom recovery installed? If not you can root it by following the guide in the comments above (Thai method, I haven't had time to write it up yet)Then install a custom recovery here - http://johnnyparanoia.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/how-to-install-recovery-on-huawei.html(I'd use the cwm_touch_recovery_viva_beta.img because it's in english.Download the Gapps package here - http://goo.im/gapps/gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip and copy it to your phones SDCard.Reboot into recovery choose 'install zip from SDCard>Choose zip from SDCard>and navigate to where you copied gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip and install.Reboot once its finished and you should have Google Play etc installed :)
I faced the same problem.You have to root the B118 firmware and install custom recovery, then flash the gapps package.Follow this guide for rootinghttp://johnnyparanoia.blogspot.in/2012/06/how-to-root-huawei-ascend-p1-u9200.htmlFollow this guide for installing recoveryhttp://johnnyparanoia.blogspot.in/2012/06/how-to-install-recovery-on-huawei.htmlDont worry recovery install process is same for 113, 115 and 118 versions.The Gapps package you need is here - http://goo.im/gapps/gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zipIf you want a fresh install u can download the original 118 firmware from above link and flash the same in your phone using the below guide.http://johnnyparanoia.blogspot.in/2012/07/how-to-restore-stock-firmware-on-huawei_20.htmlThis step has to be done first.
if i root the phone as you describe, can i install gapps without use custom recovery?
why i can not install the official 219 rom? i have the same problems with the other user...
still cant install fast boot....
I don't really understand what you mean. Fastboot is the mode you put your phone into in order to flash an image file.You need to have USB Debugging enabled and thaw fastboot option unchecked in you phones settings. Then reboot in fastboot mode (should stop on logo) and then you can flash the recovery image :)
Is there a way to be able to have Google apps (google play) in a P1 buyed in China whithout having to install Clockworkmod Recovery ? Can I flash official Uk or German ROM that I guess already have google apps installed ? It will work that way ? Thanks.
You can try and flash a 'General' rom from above and see if it works (there seems to be a version check with the firmware for the P1 but I cannot confirm or deny because I don't own one lol)If it doesn't work it will just give you a 'Chk Version' error so you can try it and your phone should be fine :)
Where is the fastboot option?i cant find it anywhere...
It would be in Settings>Applications if you have it. To test just switch off your phone and then hold the volume down key and power key for about 5 seconds and the phone should boot up and stop at the first logo, that's fastboot mode.
i installed clockmode recovery.I managed to boot into it, but when i navigate with the up and down keys to the menu, then i push the power buton to select install zip from sd card, id does nothing but showing a little hat....
i installed recovery and boot into it, but it doesnt work, whei i select an option , it shows a hat an does nothing...
Which recovery image did you install? I've never heard of this problem with a recovery before lol
I have same problemWhen i select an option , it shows a hat an does nothing...
I used - cwm_touch_recovery_viva_beta.img
HELLO JHONNY i think u can help me :-) i got the chinese version running B118 as u know china blocked google so no google apps no market bla bla i live in USA i need market and all google apps i dont want to root custom rom bla bla can i install a official international rom or maybe a canadian or any official rom that includes GAPPS ? which rom should be? thanks
Any of the (Normal) labelled roms above will have gapps so you can try any of them. However they may not work if you have the Chinese firmware installed already due to the 'Version Check' error, Huawei seems to be trying to stop people flashing 'Normal' firmware on the Chinese phones.There is a way around this but try flashing the firmware first because I don't know if it affects all P1's or just some.Other tip I can offer is to try a firmware higher than the one already installed so if you have V100R001CHNC00B113 try flashing V100R001C00B219 to see if it will upgrade.Hope this helps and post back if you run into the version check error and I'll try to help :)
Hello, does sofware Ascend P1 U9200-1 (Android 4.0)V100R001C00B219(Normal)(05010XWP) include european languages, exactly czech language? Thank you :)
I want to upgrade my phone firmware. I already use both normal and force method. In normal method, my phone shut down and turn into recovery page. In force method, huawei logo is started and turn off again. I also check my SD card. It is also good. how can I do? Please me. I'm waiting for reply. (sorry for my english that is not good.)
Hi mate, I have FW B105 and I would like to provide it to you if you want...
Hello! Johnny. My name is Kaung Htet Aung from Myanmar. Help me for rooting u9200 B118 version.
I want to install B219 from B118 in u9200. But I can't. Normal Upgrade and force Upgrade are not worked in my phone. Please Help me.
See comment and reply below :)
Hello I have this Ascend P1 U9200-1 (Android 4.0) V100R001CHNC00B118 (Generic Version)I can install this Ascend P1 U9200-1 (Android 4.0) V100R001C00B219 (Normal) (05010XWP)??
Yes and No lol.From the feedback I've been getting, the P1 has quite a robust version check on its firmware so you can try to flash straight off but will probably get an error.However you can root your P1 and then manually flash a recovery image from a previous 'Normal' version like B213 before flashing B219 and this should get around the version check error.Look on here for the guides -Extract and identify Recovery image - http://johnnyparanoia.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/how-to-extract-and-identify-recovery.htmland Manually flash a recovery image - http://johnnyparanoia.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/how-to-manually-flash-recovery-image.htmlIf you need help rooting try Unlock Root here - http://www.unlockroot.com/it has the B118 firmware listed as one it can root.Hope this helps :)
does anyone have b102?????
Hi Johnny, you definately rule ! Thanks for this great blog . Look, I just have received an amazing Huawei P1 U9200 bought directly from China. The firmware right now is U9200-1V100R001CHNC00B118. Can you please guide me in the process to update this ROM to a multilingual ROM that include spanish please ? And if possible that this ROM come already rooted. The good point is that the chinese seller sent me the P1 already rooted and with recovery applied...so although Recovery is in chinese I have translated recovery menus and I know how to access Sd Zip update. Thanks for your help Johnny and keep up the outstanding job !
Well I have tried to install V100R001C00B219 English ROM but failed during the instalation and returned to Recovery. I tought I bricked the phone but after restart the ROM seem to work fine...Do you know why that happenned ? Maybe as I have B118 chinese ROM ? or maybe cause I have already the chinese recovery applied so I would need to install a Zip ROM instead?
Its a combination of factors. The custom recovery means that no official rom will pass the version check (it seems to be an issue with all the custom recoveries available) also even if it wasn't rooted then the Chinese firmware also fails the version check when trying to install a European upgrade.There is a way around this and since you are already rooted, you're already half way there lol :)First you'll need to extract the recovery image from a general firmware (Try B219 since you already have it) - How to - Extract and Identify Recovery Images from (Most) Huawei Firmwarenext you'll need to flash it to your phone - How to - Manually flash a recovery image via ADBthen upgrade your firmware using the forced method - How to - Restore stock Firmware on Huawei Ascend P1 - U9200Once installed use Unlockroot to re-root your new firmwareAnd then install cwm_touch_recovery_viva_beta.img using the manual method above (its CWM recovery in English instead of Chinese)You should now have an updated and rooted phone with all the Google apps and Spanish (I can't be sure but the European ones usually do)Enjoy :)
Thanks a lot for you reply. The step (extract and identify Recovery Images from Huawei Firmware) seems really tough... do you know if I found the B219 ROM in zip format I could be able to flash the ROM succesfully ? Thank you very much.
You could indeed flash a custom rom in zip format. If you open it and it has a system and META-INF folder plus a boot.img then you're golden :) if its just got a 'update.app' then keep looking because its stock.If you can't find the stock rom in zip format, you can always try the MIUI Rom here - MIUI Android
Thank you very much for your help Johnny ! I will think about what to do... yes I think finding a good zip rom would be the most safe thing to do...well I will keep you informed if I can make it. Thanks.
i just bought this mobile..my firmware B219 so can i root my phone using your tutorial bro???
You can do but I'd use Unlock Root now, its way easier and supports the U9200 B219 which it didn't when I wrote the tutorials lol :)
thanks bro..where can i update latest firmware than B219?
why i cant use unlock root??it just appeared preparing unlock root..please wait for long period...

FAQ from unlockroot website:2. Q: Does Unlock Root work with Android 4.0.2?A: Unlock Root doesn't work with official version of Android 4.0. But it works with Android 4.0. made by the third party.it mean that any official 4.0 can't be root?
hi guysnow you can flash any stock "ROM" like b219 by edit the build.pro :)1- you have to root your U9200 using ( root u9200[Nixing] ) .2- edit last 13 line in system\build.pro ( using root e.g root explorer ) ( ****** ) Mean rom nubmer .ro.product.board=U9200ro.confg.hw_systemversion=U9200-1V100R001********_SYSTEMro.build.display.id=U9200-1V100R001******ro.product.model=U9200ro.product.brand=Huaweiro.build.tags=ota-rel-keys,release-keysro.product.manufacturer=HUAWEIro.product.name=U9200ro.product.device=hwu9200ro.build.id=HuaweiU9200ro.build.version.incremental=C00B213ro.build.description=U9200-user 4.0.3 HuaweiU9200 ******* ota-rel-keys,release-keysro.build.fingerprint=Huawei/U9200/hwu9200:4.0.3/HuaweiU9200/*******:user/ota-rel-keys,release-keys3- install stock recovery via ADB .4- finally ,force update "dload" file in your SD " press and hold the volume up and volume down keys together "thank you firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for this tip! It worked great! I managed to go from B104 to B226.A couple of notes:1. The line "ro.build.version.incremental" should also be updated with the required ROM version.2. You can start the upgrade process by going to:Settings>Storage>Software Upgrade>SD card UpgradeThe phone will reboot and go to recovery mode directly.

Hi all. I recently purchased a SIM-free P1 and tried updating it using the online updater utility which told me that there were no updates available - as expected. So I tried to install the B229 firmware from Huawei's site. I had to force it into the recovery, during which I couldn't select the "UPDATE.APP" file from my microSD card.After some extensive googling, it seems that if an update is incompatible with the P1 in question, it will fail to install - which is fair enough.My question is: Which firmware from the list, if any, will I be able to install? I'm currently on V100R001GBRC00B102 (I live in the UK) - this may be the same firmware as the pay-monthly Vodafone models, but I'm not entirely sure.Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
I have the same problem with installing B229
Greetings,So I can't seem to find the Nixing/Tools file anywhere,all links to this have been broken and torrent sites don'thave the file either. Any suggestions on where to find thetool required for this tutorial? The name of the hacker whoinvented it? (starts with a G I think?) Thanks!C
