According to the latest reports we received from our readers, Huawei is finally pushing out official Android 4.4 update for people in some European countries such as Hungary,Romania and Czech Republic. This new B510 update seems to be the same one pushed to registered beta testers in Germany not too long ago. There is speculation and rumors going on that Huawei rushed and outed the beta firmware as official one, but knowing Huawei’s numbering scheme B510 still could be the final official one intended for release in Europe.

Here are some details about this official firmware

Compatible Model – Ascend P6-U06
Firmware version – B510
Android version – 4.4.2 KitKat
Emotion UI version – EMUI 2.3
Kernel version – 3.0.8-00787
Size – 775MB
Region – Europe
English language is included

We won’t go through describing the changelog here because you guys have probably know the changes by now because of the leaked and official Chinese firmwares. Basically this update brings the new EMUI 2.3 user interface and few new software additions to the camera and power saving features.

Again we still don’t know why Huawei pushed B510 firmware as a beta one to Germany and as a official one to others. The download file below is obtained from the official B510 release and not the B510 German beta release. So if future proves that both B510 aren’t the same you can be rest assured that we have provided you the official release.

Make sure that you are running B132 firmware before installing this new B510 release. This B510 was pushed to the users running official B132 firmware http://huaweinews.com/2014/03/ascend-p6-b132-firmware/ and early adopters of B510 reported us that B510 won’t install correctly as the previous leaked KitKat firmwares unless you are running B132 prior installing B510.

Please report the issues and your thoughts about this firmware in the comments below so other readers will be aware of it.

Hello !

This update work only for Stock Huawei Firmware B132 JB and also for Stock Huawei Beta B510 KitKat !

If you have issue to update from this two stock firmware, it seems that your stock rom in your device was modified , so you should put all the files back .

For all device already updated to KitKat but not Beta 510 , you can downgrade by installing a intermediate step ( update.app ) . Only now you are able to flash Stock B132 UPDATE.APP by /dload method .

For all device already updated to OmniROM KitKat 4.4.3, you can directly downgrade to B132 ( without install intermediate step update.app ) .
Put UPDATE.APP from Stock B132 in external sdcard/dload directory, also you should put back stock boot.img & recovery.img ( for B506 ) from second post TWRP 2.7.0.0 ! After these three steps you can downgrade by pressing combo key . ( Before put back stock recovery from B506, please go to TWRP recovery and wipe : cache, dalvik-cache, cust, data & system ) .

Good luck !

Nop, you shouldn't wipe Internal Storage on TWRP ! I already downgraded ( and more than once ) from OmniROM 4.4.3 directaly to UPDATE.APP from B132, but wiped all without Internal and External Storage .

Now , you can try with intermediate UPDATE.APP before flash UPDATE.APP from B132.

Good luck .
