The OTA has just come. I have rooted phone with twrp recovery installed.
What to do now?

As I have read the forum, I should from http://forum.xda-developers.com/ascend-p7/development/recovery-t2811965 install back “Huawei Ascend P7-L10 thanks to XQC”, and that is it?

The phone will be unrooted, so I have to root it again.

Yes,on B.609 twrp doesn't work,you must use chinese cwm translated to english and you will have not full root with stock kernel unless you flash via adb custom kernel.

For now I would like to try stock rom.
The zip file (* Huawei Ascend P7-L10 thanks to XQC) on [RECOVERY][ Unofficially Open Recovery TWRP 2.8.1.0 ][ 09/11/2014 ] thread consists of two recoveries: recovery.img and recovery2.img.

I believe that I should flash recovery.img, shuldn't I?

After flasnih recovery I will just start the update.

Regards,

Zoran

Well, the update has failed.
I am informed to go to the http://www.emui.com/motiondownload.php?mod=restore which doesn't work.
I was able to shutdown the phone and to reboot it again.

Apon booting the phone I got the message that update has failed and by clicking on it I went to the update screen.
Looks like huawei is checking wheather the phone is rooted or something else.

What to do now?

Install stock recovery and then update through OTA. You cannot use OTA with custom recovery.

I have installed stock recovery in the following way:
1. I have downloaded a zip file (* Huawei Ascend P7-L10 thanks to XQC) from [RECOVERY][ Unofficially Open Recovery TWRP 2.8.1.0 ][ 09/11/2014 ] thread
2. I have unpacked recovery.img from zip file
3. As a root, I have used adb reboot bootloader, fastboot flash recovery recovery.img, fastboot reboot
4. Now I have downloaded and started the update

I believe that this is enough.
Do I have to unroot the phone before update?
Is the stock recovery from the twrp thread OK for this update?

check this http://forum.xda-developers.com/ascend-p7/help/unable-to-downgrade-ascend-p7-l10-b609-t3050761
for this guy it worked (you don't need to downgrade to 2.3 if you don't want)

Well, I am still on 2.3, but I cannot go up.
After starting the update, the phone boots to the recovery, than:
finding update package
opening update package
verifying update package
instaling update
huawei factory resizing
update failed please try again

I have option to shutdown the phone and that is basically it. :confused:

Download full ROM 609 and copy dload folder to SD card. Start install process by holding vol+ vol- and power button at the same time

I cannot install official download in that way.

Let's go in this step by step!
1. Confirm which recovery you have installed, 2.3 or 3.0. If you did not flash official Emui 3.0 than you need emui 2.3 official recovery. Official recovery you can extract from official Emui 2.3 ROMs (you will need 2.3 ROM also for flashing).
2. Flash the needed recovery (if needed).
3. After downloading official 2.3 ROM, open it and check if there is a folder "dload". On that folder should be a file "update.app". Copy the folder "dload" together with it's content on the root of your SD card.
4. Go to settings -> update -> local update and start update (local update) , if local update does not work than try force update.
5. Confirm on the forum :)
