Put the downgrader in dload. After it is done, install your b125.

Make sure you thank @iwtfmcl who discovered it here:

Yes, I saw that yesterday and put it on SD, but when I select "Install update so sd card", i go to dload folder and it's empty (yes, I checked if the UpdATE.APP is in there)

I installed recovery for b118 first and the boot.img and recovery from b506



so, my phones turns on, I can see the Huawei splashscreen. I can enter recovery as well. and my PC recognizes the phone.
My recovery wont install anything though.
So, can I flash some sort of recovery in this situation? Because I think that flashing the boot.img removed my ROM.

To revert on 4.2.2 flash first that: http://dl.vmall.com/c01l4l4a2y# via local update, after that you can flash 4.2.2 without issues again via local update.
Another link for the download in case it is slow from the first one https://mega.co.nz/#!9oEHUTiR!uVKEq6...QZ5yrnedx4rug4

I don't think you can use stock recovery to pick update.app from folder. You have to use 3 button power up method.
Just place update.app in dload folder on external SD card.

From the links i shared before you can get a dload/update.app that you need to put on sd card and update through the stock recovery before you try updating actual stock rom(4.2.2)

The term local update refers to update that you do from working ROM, meaning you are able to go to System updates when ROM is running and choose Local update from SD card.
In this case it has to be done by what's called forced update, 3 button power up method.

Hello !

Sorry to tell you, but from start you did a wrong step ! First if you was on OmniROM, you must flash ONLY stock recovery for KitKat and not for JB ! From here start all issues in your device !

To avoid any issue , when you use a custom rom based KitKat and you want to downgrade to JB , first you must put your device to Stock Huawei KitKat ( doesn't matter if is beta, B506 or B507 ) ! To install Stock Huawei KitKat - you must to flash stock recovery KitKat - and than flash UPDATE.APP from /dload folder ( where UPDATE.APP is stock firmware Huawei KitKat ) !

Now you should follow the intermediate steps to be able to downgrade to JB ( by installing aditional update.app )

Anyway good luck, and I hope you can solve this issue !

Edit :

You can try this stuff :

First, use your PC with a new microSD to copy UPDATE.APP ( from Huawei KitKat ) in /dload folder !

Go here and take stock recovery for Huawei KitKat ;

Put your microSD already prepared on your device and connect USB cable! Put your device in bootloader mode ( just keep pressing power button and volume down more than 10sec ) - now you should be able to flash stock recovery in your device > fastboot flash recovery recovery.img ; and reboot your device > fastboot reboot ! Right now you can reboot in stock recovery ( adb reboot recovery or using combo key ) and start flash UPDATE.APP !
