How-To Install Recovery on Huawei Ascend P1 - U9200 B113 and B115

Try this at your own risk, I am NOT responsible if you brick your phone.

This is mainly for Huawei Ascend P1 U9200 with B113 or B115 firmware but will work on any version with the right recovery image.

Huawei U9200 AKA Ascend P1

Step 1 - Download Android Control here (mirror) or here (XDA thread) and extract to a folder on your hard drive root (eg. c:\AndroidControl)

Step 2 - Download one of these Recovery images - recovery-new.img (the one included in Onekey)
recovery-off.img (the one that Onekey is based on)
cwm_touch_recovery_viva_beta.img (A new one which is in English )

Note: As far as I know, the first two are both Chinese language but based on ClockWorkMod so should be easy enough to navigate around, the last one is a beta but is in English and uses the touchcreen to navigate rather than the volume and power keys.

Step 3 - Put whichever image you choose into the AndroidControl folder ready to be flashed over.

Step 4 - Make sure USB Debugging is enabled on your phone and then switch it off. Hold volume down and power key (I think lol) to boot into download mode (phone should boot to logo and then stop) then plug it into your PC.

Step 5 - Open a command prompt and navigate to your Android Control folder, run the following command depending which one you chose.

fastboot flash recovery recovery-new.img


fastboot flash recovery recovery-off.img


fastboot flash recovery cwm_touch_recovery_viva_beta.img

Step 6 - Once finished type - 'fastboot reboot' to reboot your phone.

Step 7 - Turn off your phone once rebooted and then hold the volume up and power keys to boot into recovery.

Enjoy :)
