How to – Restore stock Firmware on Huawei Ascend P1 – U9200

Huawei Ascend P1 – U9200

 

WARNING – This will completely reset your phone and erase all data, custom rom and any custom recovery partition you have installed such as ClockWorkMod and replace it with Huawei Stock recovery etc. It will also remove any rooting on the phone and restore it to its unrooted state.

 

Method 1 – Forced Update

Step 1 – BACKUP everything on your phone.

Step 2 – Download the stock firmware

(These are the only ones I have available at the moment so you might need to pick the closest match for yours)

* – This may or may not be the correct country, I’ve had to guess with some of the firmwares so if not it will probably be close or a general/normal version.

Step 3 – Download all parts of the firmware into the same folder.

Step 4 – Open one of the downloaded .rar files in WinRAR or other archive manager.

Step 5 – Select the ‘dload’ folder inside the main folder and drag it onto your desktop.

Step 6 – Open the ‘dload’ folder on your desktop and check that the file ‘update.app’ is inside.

Step 7 – Copy the whole ‘dload’ folder accross to the root of your phones SD card (you may want to use a blank SD for this)

Step 8 – Turn your phone off then press and hold the volume up and volume down keys together and then press the power key.

Step 9 – The install process should start automatically so just wait until its finished.

Step 10 – Your phone will reboot automatically after the firmware has finished installing and will take some time to load, this is normal so just leave it to do its thing.

Step 11 – Check that the update has worked by checking the Firmware version by navigating to – Setting->About phone->Build number

Note: The [Firmware Version] should match the last 7 characters of the firmware you downloaded eg C00B213.

 

Method 2 – Normal Update

Step 1 – BACKUP everything on your phone, I cannot stress this enough :)

Step 2 – Download the stock firmware

(These are the only ones I have available at the moment so you might need to pick the closest match for yours)

* – This may or may not be the correct country, I’ve had to guess with some of the firmwares so if not it will probably be close or a general/normal version.

Step 3 – Download all parts of the firmware into the same folder.

Step 4 – Open one of the downloaded .rar files in WinRAR or other archive manager.

Step 5 – Select the ‘dload’ folder inside the main folder and drag it onto your desktop.

Step 6 – Open the ‘dload’ folder on your desktop and check that the file ‘update.app’ is inside.

Step 7 – Copy the whole ‘dload’ folder accross to the root of your phones SD card (you may want to use a blank SD for this)

Step 8 – If your phone is on, switch it off and then back on again. Otherwise switch on your phone and wait for it to boot up fully. Navigate to Settings->Storage->Software Upgrade->SD card Upgrade->Confirm->Upgrade

You should then see the following -


 

Step 9 – Check that the update has worked by checking the Firmware version by navigating to – Setting->About phone->Build number

Note: The [Firmware Version] should match the last 7 characters of the firmware you downloaded eg C00B213.

 

Done, you should now have a phone thats back to factory fresh :)

    When I flashed another recovery like recovery-off.omg or recovery-new.img and Touch recovery this method doesn’t work. Update from Dload from external SD dosen’t work.
    And btw., you don’t have stock until you have stock recovery (If you want to send the phone to service)
    How can I restore stock recovery?

      Try installing the cwm_touch_recovery_viva_beta.img recovery above, then try flashing the Gapps package. I don’t know much about OneKeys recovery because its in Chinese but it might be that it’s broken or not reading the Gapps package properly.
