Maybe previous FW was ICS, and you therefore need a 4.0.x ROM to make it boot?
Then swap build prop and go intermediate?

It seems like the recovery is forced to compare the build.prop already on the phone with "compitable" firmware versions the upgrade is said to work with.
The fix is simple. Flash a custom recovery (fastboot) then a custom firmware. For instance spanorgs' CM11 and TWRP build: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2528822. All u9200 comes with unlocked bootloader AFAIK, and no root is needed to install a custom ROM.

After flash and 1st boot, enter TWRP. Insert the build.prop from intermediatepack FlashPack (from my AIO-thread) into the system folder. (TWRP has built in file manager)
Then install stock recovery (fastboot), and have the update in dload in sdcard. Install the intermediate pack.
This should work




If you can enter fastboot (turn on while holding volume down), and the PC recognizes it, you can use the same solution as I posted above your quote.
15 seconds adb and fastboot installer will do: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=48915118#post48915118

Put dload in SD card
Turn off device
Press volume up and down together
Then press power
When Huawei logo appear, release power button for 3 seconds without releasing the volume buttons
Then press power again
After three seconds release all buttons

I'm not sure if you can use AIO p1 tool for stock rom.
You should practice the timing, you still have the stock recovery so this should work

Got it working now. With help from o-l-a-v :)
I was following the guide from http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2450306 (really bad and unfulfilled).
It misses some vital points.
The point/step I missed was "Go to the "Mount" menu and mount System."
----

Just boot twrp recovery and exit. It will ask if you want to root. Simple solution that is posted in the first post.

Just booting to twrp recovery and exit isn't enought. I need to mount System first.

    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.

    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=[COLOR="YellowGreen"]U9200-1V100R001C00B226[/COLOR]_SYSTEM
    ro.build.display.id=[COLOR="YellowGreen"]U9200-1V100R001C00B226[/COLOR]
    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=[COLOR="YellowGreen"]C00B226[/COLOR]
    ro.build.description=U9200-user 4.0.3 HuaweiU9200 [COLOR="YellowGreen"]C00B226[/COLOR] ota-rel-keys,release-keys
    ro.build.fingerprint=Huawei/U9200/hwu9200:4.0.3/HuaweiU9200/[COLOR="YellowGreen"]C00B226[/COLOR]: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.

    U9200-1V100R001RUSC10B103.

    I've extracted recovery.img from English EmUI beta + made build.prop for U9200-1V100R001RUSC10B103. And the firmware (Update.app) itself is included in this package: https://mega.co.nz/#!PwRAXKLb!Te0BNRrUgsU3zEgjiM-nyXzx5flL49Z-GS0i_ZvAF4w

    Yes, it's there. But when I try to edit it with ES Explorer I get an error when I want to save it. How can I make the change :confused:
    Edit : got it ! Apparently ESE can't modify read-only files, I used X-Plore which has an option doing just that.

    I found 650 Mb of logs in data/gps which I could delete with ESE, I feel much lighter now !

    ES File Explorer can do root browsing and editing just fine.
    You just have to mount the partition as RW.

    Updated thread. Rewrote some stuff, added new rooting method and added more firmwares.
