Default Huawei Ascend P1/U9200 Root

This method is tested by me and it worked perfectly. With this guide you will be able to root your U9200 with b113 and b115(android 4.0 and 4.0.3).
I am not responsible for any data loss or bricked devices! You do it on your own risk!

1) Download this zip. The password is: ccc333
2) Extract the zip to your desktop.
3) Download Android SDK Tools from here and install the packages.
4) Plug your Ascend P1 to the PC.
5) Make sure that USB Debugging is checked (Settings -> Developer options -> USB debugging)!
6) Open "b113_b115-root_u9200---__[Nixing]" from your desktop.
7) Run "hwadb.exe".
8) Run "ubl.exe", click ROOT - this should root your device without restart and any problem, check if the Superuser icon has appeared.
After the device is rooted you will need to install recovery.
I used Geno's Recovery - run "Onekey_ROM_Ascendp1.exe" from the zip and the tool will install it.
From this recovery you can flash whatever you want w/o any problems! It's a little bit sad that it is in chinese but oh well...
I will attach a picture of the same recovery but in english so you can see what you are actually doing.

Good luck!

Hi.
When i try run "Onekey_ROM_Ascendp1.exe" i got stuck on reboot stage. Telephone just show Huawei Ascend. BTW Win 7 can't find driver for Blaze. I tried reboot manually with pressed power+volum up keys and recover update.zip. But recovery cant pass signature verification.

You can try this to install the recovery image onto the phone without the custom rom.

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

2. Download the Recovery image - recovery-new.img (the one included in Onekey) or recovery-off.img (the one that Onekey is based on)
Note: As far as I know, they are both Chinese language but based on ClockWorkMod so should be easy enough to navigate around. Edit: Though judging from the picture above then they may not be Chinese lol

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

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.

5. Open a command prompt and navigate to your Android Control folder, run the following command -

fastboot flash recovery recovery-new.img

or

fastboot flash recovery recovery-off.img

depending which one you chose.

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

7. Turn off your phone once rebooted and then hold the volume up and power keys to boot into recovery, if its in Chinese you've been successful

I am curious how you install some ROM as .zip file, when all original updates from Huawei have .app as extension.....
Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE - Stock, rooted KK 4.4.2
Samsung Galaxy S3 - rooted, S4 Revolution 40.0
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 - rooted, Omni ROM
Xperia Arc S - rooted, AORP 4.4.2
Huawei P1 - rooted, RootBox ROM, JB 4.2.2
Desire HD - rooted, VenomROM - retired to pension/backup phone

In my case it after step 5) it works a little bit different.

When run "Onekey_ROM_Ascendp1.exe" and stuck on reboot stage (just show Huawei Ascend), then you must install a driver for Blaze device manually, you can choose the standard "Android Adapter ADB interface" for this (it works in my case), after intalling the driver Onekey_ROM will resume and install only the recovery image and you phone is showing the Chinese recovery menu choose your "update.zip" or "gapps-signed.zip" from SD-card and it wil be installed (update.zip means your desired firmware).

It seems that the firmware in the Onekey_ROM_Ascendp1 tool will not be placed on the SD-card but in Local Storage, so it will not be installed, therefor put the "gapps-signed.zip" or "update.zip" before flashing on the SD-card so you can select it in Chinese recovery.

I only installed the gapps with original firmware B115 on the phone and all gapps are working.

DONATE TO ME
Hi people,
I'm sorry for this little off topic but I don't know where to find other Huawei Ascend P1's users.
I would like to buy this device but before I would like to know if this device is going fine.
In particular way: how is the in call audio quality? Is it missing calls (like other Huawei device U8800 Pro)? How is the Network (GSM and/or UMTS-3G) quality?
Is the price balanced to the overall quality of the device? I just know that the Huawei Ascend P1 is able to record amazing video and the audio quality is really incredible, but the "phone" function, how is it?
Sorry for the off topic.
It's a great news that I can root the device, so probably at 99% I will buy it after reading your comments.
Thank you in advance,
regards,

kalo

Hey, I'm very pleased with my U9200, don't know about the others but everything works fine here. The device's default ROM was working perfect, I managed to root it and eventually changed to MIUI ROM. But yeah, the U9200 is a really good smartphone if you ask me. There are still not enough apps and tweaks for it etc.

Try Unlock Root here - Unlock Root 2.3.1 it says it can root the U9200 and might work for your firmware version.

You can also try the method for B113 and B115
