Original Firmwares
Since I got my Ascend P1 I've been playing around with it alot.
Here's my list of official firmwares for the Ascend P1.

DISCLAIMER
I am not responsible for any bricked devices.

Software downloads
TWRP-2.4.4.0_P1.zip (7.0 MB)

SuperSU package with Busybox
CWM-SuperSU-v0.98.zip (670 KB)
https://mega.co.nz/#!Yt42WZ6I!Lrc182...jhPQ3xcvOM23FA

Root access on all firmwares (Ice Cream Sandwich + Jelly Bean) using TWRP
When you've flashed one of your official Huawei firmwares you need to do this.
  1. Flash or boot into Teamwin Recovery on your Huawei Ascend P1
  2. Go to the "Mount" menu and mount System.
  3. Then go to the Reboot menu and reboot the system.
  4. When it detects you are not rooted TWRP will ask if you want to root.
  5. Swipe to do so and let it boot back into the system.
  6. When done just hit the SuperSU icon and let it setup for the first time. Either by downloading a flashable zip or by going to the Play Store.
  7. After that you've got a rooted device.


Root access on all Huawei Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.X) firmwares using CWM
Now to get root access on the Ascend P1 I've done it in a couple of different ways.
Download the SuperSU package with Busybox and place it on your external SD card (The card you can put into the side of the Ascend P1)

The easiest way for me was to boot ClockWorkMod Recovery from fastboot.
You need to have ADB and fastboot drivers set up and activated USB debugging on your device.
When that is done you can do some command lines to check the device is recognized and ready to go.

Step 1:
Launch a Command Promt and go to the directory where your ADB is setup.

Step 2:
Connect your device to the computer and make sure USB debugging is activated under the Developers options.

Step 3:
Type in:
ADB devices
and you should get a long unique ID of your device.

Step 4:
Type in:
ADB reboot bootloader

Step 5:
When the phone has rebooted into bootloader (There will just be a Huawei logo) check if the device is responding by typing:
fastboot devices if it's not you need to install the fastboot driver (Android ADB Interface).

Step 6:
If it's there you need to boot to the new CWM recovery by placing the CWM recovery image (cwm_touch_recovery_viva_beta.img) in the same library as your fastboot folder and type:
fastboot boot cwm_touch_recovery_viva_beta.img
Then your phone will reboot into CWM recovery where you can chose the SuperSU package with Busybox zip file and flash it.
That will gain root to your phone.

Step 7 (Optional):
When you're in the CWM recovery you can backup your entire device so you always can get back to it if you need to.
This is done in the back and recovery menu.


HOW-TO Flash these different regions.
If you're coming from a different region firmware than the one you want to flash, you have to do some preparations before it will flash.
This is due to a verification in the recovery and build.prop.
So for this to work you need to have root access on your current firmware.

When you flash a different region firmware the recovery checks the build.prop for matching regions.
The relevant part is at the bottom an looks like this.

Code:
ro.product.board=U9200
ro.confg.hw_systemversion=U9200-1V100R001C185B103_SYSTEM
ro.build.display.id=U9200-1V100R001C185B103
ro.product.model=U9200
ro.product.brand=Huawei
ro.build.tags=ota-rel-keys,release-keys
ro.product.manufacturer=HUAWEI
ro.product.name=U9200
ro.product.device=hwu9200
ro.build.id=HuaweiU9200
ro.build.version.incremental=C185B103
ro.build.description=U9200-user 4.0.3 HuaweiU9200 C185B103 ota-rel-keys,release-keys
ro.build.fingerprint=Huawei/U9200/hwu9200:4.0.3/HuaweiU9200/C185B103:user/ota-rel-keys,release-keys
Here you must replace all the current build details which in this case is U9200-1V100R001C185B103 and if you want to move to U9200-1V100R001C00B226 you need to replace it with that or any of the other region build numbers.
I will add CWM flashable zip files for the different regions later.
So here is the edited version.

Code:
ro.product.board=U9200
ro.confg.hw_systemversion=U9200-1V100R001C00B226_SYSTEM
ro.build.display.id=U9200-1V100R001C00B226
ro.product.model=U9200
ro.product.brand=Huawei
ro.build.tags=ota-rel-keys,release-keys
ro.product.manufacturer=HUAWEI
ro.product.name=U9200
ro.product.device=hwu9200
ro.build.id=HuaweiU9200
ro.build.version.incremental=C00B226
ro.build.description=U9200-user 4.0.3 HuaweiU9200 C00B226 ota-rel-keys,release-keys
ro.build.fingerprint=Huawei/U9200/hwu9200:4.0.3/HuaweiU9200/C00B226:user/ota-rel-keys,release-keys
Now with that done you need to flash the recovery.img from the build you want to move to.
I will supply the recovery.img files later.
I've put some recovery.img in some of the packages. But will upload them separately later when I've extracted them all.

Now this is very similar to what you did when rooting.

Step 1:
Do a reboot to bootloader again by typing:
ADB reboot bootloader

Step 2:
Check the device is there by typing:
Fastboot devices

Step 3:
Flash the recovery by typing:
Fastboot flash recovery recovery.img (the recovery name can vary)

Step 4:
Type:
Fastboot reboot

Let it boot up and then go to:
Settings->Storage->Software Upgrade->SD card Upgrade->Confirm->Upgrade
This will erase all apps and settings, so remember to backup your stuff.

There is also a force upgrade mode which you can enter by holding down Volume Up and Volume Down keys right after the vibration when the device boots up.


Installation of EmotionUI B704 with all langauges enabled.
SO DON'T SETUP YOUR PHONE RIGHT AFTER YOU'VE FLASHED IT, YOU WILL HAVE TO DO A FACTORY RESET!

So if you flash B704 you'll notice when you want to change the locale on it that it only contains 4 languages, some Asian ones and English.
To get all languages you'll need to flash a zip in TWRP that I made to enable them again.

Procedure:
  1. Flash B704 through normal means (stock recovery)
    If it fails you need to flash the intermediate firmware then flash B704 (intermediate firmware can be found in the download links below).
  2. When B704 installation is complete reboot the device to bootloader.
  3. From there boot TWRP 2.4.4.0 with the command:
    Code:
    fastboot boot "recovery_image_name.img" (usually just recovery.img or twrp_recovery.img but can vary)
  4. Flash GAPPS for 4.1.x (http://goo.im/gapps/gapps-jb-20121011-signed.zip)
  5. Flash my language enabler package - This can be found below in the links section or as an attachment.

    Optional step if you want root:
  6. When you do a Reboot system from TWRP it will ask you if you want to root as it can see you don't have it.
  7. If you want that just slide the slider and click the SuperSU icon when your back in Android.
  8. If you don't want root just click the button above that ignores that.

    Final step:
  9. When you're booted back into Android go to Setting > Backup & Reset and press the Factory data reset button.
    This is necessary if you want the languages to be enabled as the settings is being read and reinitialized from the cust partition.

I believe they all are multi lingual. But I've only used English in them and don't remember if they contained all languages. The global version has most languages.

I've updated the thread with a upgrade tutorial, this is a bit advanced if you're not used to use ADB and Fastboot and haven't set it up.
I will make a complete walk through on how to set it all up later.
