Yes, it does. I've flashed his TWRP to my P7-L00 and it works fine. I tried flashing zips, backing up, restoring and everything else and it is fine.

Startup manager on P7

Dear All!

I have just joined to this community. It looks very good and informative. I've already posted my problem in another topic but noone answered yet.

I've just updated my P7 to firmware B133. What I'm missing from my phone is the startup manager. I hoped if I do this update this feature will appear in my options. But it did not. Could someone please tell me which update contains the Startup manager?

I have another question. If I download a firmware update from a german webpage (for me it seems firmware updates only available to download from webpages from germany) will it contain other languages (i.e. hungarian)?

Thank in advance!

Peter from Hungary

(sorry for my bad english)

Start up manager was removed for kitkat

Google said it went against their policy. Huawei may bring it back because many want it back!

Hungarian will be supported.

I have the startup manager. It's in the Settings menu. Maybe it depends on which build you have.

Hi All,

Thinking about buying Ascend P7 (although maybe should wait patiently for Honor 6?)

I see that there is no consistent view on the Ascend P7. There are different opinions even on same device with same firmware.

Can some of you dear owners relate to the review on androidcentral?

Specifically the part about quirky software or Gmail not refreshing the emails in real-time.

Thanks

I did not note the issue you described with gmail. The original ROM b121 updated to b126 is working fine. I'm trying MIUI right now, except NFc, everything seems fine.

You should be able to use the OTA updater if that doesn't work B126 is here but you will need to do it a manual way which may or may not work depending on what rom came with the device originally if its custom or if you are rooted which would mean you can't update in those circumstances.

Sounds like a faulty phone. I bought mine from China too so as you say, no warranty. If the vendor won't help, can you get a repair in Italy? If not your only option is to replace the device.

How are you all finding the 3G/4G reception?

I'm getting constant dropouts streaming music when on my other phones I had Huawei Y320 and a old dual sim Star X19i were fine.

I got this phone 2 days ago and I have to say... I don't like it. It's much uglier than the P6 which had the absolute perfect proportions, compared, this one looks like it's mentally retarded older brother.
The performance is meh... just like the P6. The only reason I bought the P7 and not just another P6 is because I hoped that they fixed the fking lag on the notification panel. But no it still lags like **** on any other launcher except the default one (and it doesn't work well on that one either). Applications run slightly better mostly because this time they used a mainstream GPU and not some obscure brand that is often confused with a video game studio. But overall it just wasn't worth the money. If someone would ask me what phone to get I'd probably say P6. Not to mention P6 are dirt cheap now, get a full body screen guard and you are set for atleast 2 more years.

The screen is much better however and the one I got has 0 backlight bleed compared to my P6 that had massive bleed right out of the box. The screen has 0 bleed but funny enough now the backlight spills through the plastic and makes it look cheap in the dark with full backlight (atleast on the white version). Not that anyone would be rocking 100% backlight in complete darkness but it's still a problem.

I would have bought an Allview x2 Soul in a heartbeat if it had a microsd slot... or atleast a 32GB version.

As many other P7-L00 owners I also had a problem with the phone not recognizing the micro-simcard in Slot 1 after a few weeks. Since there were no replacement-parts for P7-L00 in Europe I had to send it in to my seller in China (Etotalk). This takes a long time because china post is very slow, then quite often there are customs inspections requiring documents for clearance from the reciepient. All in all one has to calculate 2-3 monts for a warranty repair at the factory in P.R.China. But a 400$-phone is worth the pain.


Good luck!
Matthias

    I have a p7-l10 version and i see set_immutable.list into system folder but i can't delete it, do u have any idea ?

    Inviato dal mio HUAWEI P7-L10 con Tapatalk

    Here are the instructions how i removed the file (these instructions come from the Huawei Honor 3X forum and all credits go to biobio76)

    1) have your phone ROOTED

    2) install BUSYBOX from PLAYSTORE

    3) install terminal emulator from PLAYSTORE

    4)open Terminal Emulator and type in the following commands:

    su

    mount -o rw,remount /system

    cd system

    lsattr

    chattr -R -i *

    rm –f /system/set_immutable.list

    lsattr

    After this set_immutable.list should be removed and you should have full access.

    let me know if it works for you.

    How to root P7

    Hi guys,

    I am here in China for some work assignment and yesterday got one P7.
    Is the model L00. Indeed has the option to use 2 sim cards however the upper slot can take a micro SD card. Smart design from Huawei.
    Of course it came with the crippled Android for China usage.
    First thing I did was to ask my chinese friends to search on their BAIDU (chinese version for Google) and find if can be rooted. And it can. I did it myself on this beauty.
    Here is what you need.

    1. Install HiSuite from Huawei web site. I can't post links yet (forum rules)..... With this soft comes all the drivers for the phone.
    2. Plug the USB cable in the phone and computer.
    3. Start HiSuite and check your phone since will ask for permission for computer to connect with it. Click Allow.
    4. HiSuite will take some time to install some other stuff and after a few minutes will be connected with your P7.
    5. Once you are sure HiSuite is connected correctly with P7....close it.
    6. Download the ROOT soft. See attached. Install. Everything in Chinese!
    7. Make sure your phone is still connected with your computer. Start the program. It will download an update and it will recognize you phone model. Click the big button on the bottom right corner. It will root your phone. You will find a vRoot icon on your phone - is a supersu type program. Not sure if is helpful so it's for you to decide.
    8. Done!

    Now only if somebody can find how to unlock the bootloader and post the non-crippled Android system for P7
    Thanks!

    So i've tried this but it doesn't seem to be working.
    When copy and paste everything into the Terminal Emulator i get some errors (... can't be found or something, can't make a screenshot for some reason).
    I am of course rooted etc.

    Do you tried to set set_immutable to 0 instead removed ?

    Sure, I don't know if it will work , but you can try and let me to know .

    How ?

    Code:
    > adb shell
    $ su
    # exec /sbin/set_immutable 0
    # exit 
    $ exit

    I don't know how it behavior in your device, but I already added this stuff in my P6 device , and I can see this :

    Code:
    > adb shell
    $ su
    # exec /sbin/set_immutable 1
    /system/set_immutable.list: get flag 80080
    /system/set_immutable.list: get flag 80080
    /system/set_immutable.list: set flag 80090
    # exec /sbin/set_immutable 0
    /system/set_immutable.list: get flag 80090
    /system/set_immutable.list: get flag 80090
    /system/set_immutable.list: set flag 80080
    # exit
    $ exit

    If in this way does not work, let me to know and I can remove set_immutable binary from boot.img .


    hi can u do CWM i preffer that

    Of Course I can do, but why you prefer older custom recovery , instead the new custom recovery TWRP ?

    First is touch, more ergonomic and includes more options, because is newest I guess it's better than CWM .

    I know there is a also CWM touch, but since was released TWRP - I work for and use only TWRP .

    Because I think there are some developers willing to perform CWM to your device, I will let the opportunity to do so. I'm content with TWRP. :eek:
