On my Ascend P7-L10 Build-Number : P7-L10V100R001C00B121SP01 it workes with no Problems.
SuperSU update via PlayStore and the Device is rooted.

Regards

Thank you.

The factory upgrade can then be applied? I do not want to replace rom, just use backup program. Eg titanium backup

Previous phone, a galaxy gio was running on CM7. I have used the factory rom for 2 days. Therefore, there is no experience regarding the factory upgrades. D

Sorry for that, but i don´t know if Factory Updates can be applied, because there is no newer Rom available.
I don´t found a Download for the Stock Rom that was installed at delivery.

Hi all,

I just received my Ascend P7-00.
After 2 updates, it is in version P7-L00V100R001C17B122SP01 and impossible to root it with the version 1.9.6 of Root Genius !

If you have any idea how to do it, I'll be glad (I need to remove all chinese apps which are polluting my phone !)

Regards

I have the same problems with my HUAWEI P7-L10 (P7-L10V100R001C00B116SP03)


I tried RootGenius v1.9.6 and v1.9.4 as well (AntiVirus deactivated) but both times it said that this device is not supported.
Has anyone an idea what I'm doing wrong?

I doubt you are doing anything wrong. I'm guessing you have upgraded your phone since you bought it. In some of the more recent Huawei upgrades for the Ascend P7, changes have been introduced by Huawei that render RootGenius and Vroot incompatible. I found the only answer was to revert the phone to an earlier build, root it with either RootGenius or Vroot and then apply the upgrades through HiSuite. This way you don't lose root.

The original rom for the L10 can be found here:

http://android-host.de/HUAWEI/P7/B121SP01/B121SP01.zip

It's a large download.

Once you have it, you need to extract the zip on your computer and then place the dload folder and its contents (update.app) onto a USB stick or your micro SD card and apply the update (settings/updates/system updates) using either the local update (SD card) or USB drive option. I think this should work but I don't have the same variant as you so I can't test. Nor can I guarantee it.

Most of the info on the P7 is in this thread:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2643183

You may want to check it out before you do anything. A lot of the contributors have the L10.

Hope this helps

Thanks @arthios for your trick,

You're right, I made the updates before rooting my device.
Unfortunately, I have a L00 version. I need to find the good ROM.

I'll let you know !

OK. You're in luck. The web site "needrom.com" has ROMs for the L00. You'll need to create an account before you can download. I suggest you take the most recent. I think it's build 119. Download it, extract the file to your computer, copy the dload folder and its contents to either SD or USB and using the phone, apply the update. Once it's all done you can root with RootGenius. I replaced the RootGenius binary with SuperSu from the play store. That's just my personal preference but you don't have to. Once rooted you can apply updates through HiSuite. Suggest you retain the ROM you download in case you need to repeat the exercise at some time in the future.

Hi !

I had the same issue.
I found (somewhere here) an apk called Google Installer which allow you to install Google apps without being rooted.
It helps me to install the synchronization of my contacts from my Google account.

It seems that some guys are working on an alternative recovery. But it still under work !
Concerning custom ROMs, I just find one on a russian site. But for now that's all I found ...
I hope that some developers will fall in love for this device ;)

It could help to have a specific folder in xda !
