Since there are many users eagerly waiting to get Windows Phone 8.1 and don't know how to flash a ROM on the Huawei Ascend W1, I decided to do a quick video-tutorial. It is basically the same as WojtasXDA's guide, but easier for less advanced users to understand.


You can find a full written-guide here.

Hope you like it!

Best Regards,

Hello, the files you indicated are not all available anymore. I am concerned if I can use only partial files to do this upgrade. I can show you what I was able to download and if you can advise if what I have is sufficient to do the upgrade, that will be greatly appreciated. However, I cant upload a screen capture of what I was able to download. How can I upload a screen capture for your review ? Thx. [email protected]
