while surfing the internet yesterday i found a site with developer called SoCr@Te
http://www.needrom.com/

which i found an update to this mobile 7D-501u V100R001C233B017
http://www.needrom.com/mobile/x1-7d-501u-3/

Mine is 7D-501u. Flashing B017 is not a problem. When you reboot, it will ask you what language you want to use. I do not see a language listed for Egypt, but there are English/Spanish/French/Italian/Deutsch/Portugue, and Chinese.

I would like to suggest that you download from the official Huawei website:

http://consumer.huawei.com/cn/suppor...x.htm?id=21804

It is in Chinese but you will find the download symbol/link on the right side. Extract the zip file, and put the files on an SD card, reboot the phone and you are good to go.

You can downgrade following the same procedure, as long as you have the firmware files on the SD card. Make sure you make a copy of your current/original firmware.

The navigation bar can be hidden or unhidden by swiping from the bottom.

The easiest thing for you to do seems to be (1) find out the current version of your current firmware through Settings --> Updates --> System Updates, and then (2) search the Internet to find and download the firmware.

I was wondering if you could check if the Permission Manager is included in this firmware? It should be part of the Phone Manager app.
Unfortunately it is missing from the International one (B003).
Thanks in advance.

That ROM link is just a mirror of the official rom from Huawei. Newest ROM for 501U is B007, Yes, the number went from B017 to B007, but B007 is newer.

Although it's B007 instead of B017, it's R002 instead of R001 - that's how you know it's newer. The B numbers reset when the R number goes up.

However I would warn against the B007 ROM, because it changes the dpi from 320 to 400 which ruins the UI.
