    Hi so I tried flashing this firmware as per instruction but I am facing “Version list verify fail!” at the Software Upgrade Mode (Vol up + Vol Down + Power). You cannot flash UPDATE.APP via Recovery (Vol. up + Power).

    Any ideas on how to solve this?

    I am upgrading from HUAWEI Ascend P1 firmware(U9200-1,Android 4.0,V100R001C00B219,Normal,05010XWP)

          You can create a free account of your own and then transfer the file to your own folder. You will be able to download the file from your own folder to your PC.

          But I couldn’t flash JB to my Canadian version of P1. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

  12. Nilan Munn says:

  13. Nilan Munn says:

    Was able to DL part 2 & 3, but unable to get part 1 of the Jelly Bean DL as it keeps saying that it is a split blocked archive, can some one help me, either by letting me know of a different site i can DL it from or if some one could forward me a copy of it, that would be great.

    update huaweiu9200
    sent to my phone 009509422508723

  15. Nilan Munn says:

    I was able to get a full copy from johnny paranoia’s blog. I tried to update my P1 with a stock B104 firmware using the Huawei B226 stock roms from there website, using the normal upgrade option & it comes back as version list verify fail, SD card upgrade fail, tried this with the B508 rom and that also came back with the same message.

    I have tried to flash the recovery with cwm_touch_recovery_viva_beta.img and that did not work either as it just came up with waiting for device in the command prompt window, i have al the correct usb drivers etc, installed so what am i doing wrong? any help greatly appreciated.

  16. Nilan Munn says:

    Hi, thanks for getting back to me, yes USB debugging is on, i did root it using unlockroot website, but i think the bootloader is locked, i saw on another website the guy installed root explorer on his phone and edited the system build.prop file and changed all the references to his firmware to the one he wanted to use and then updgraded by the normal option i.e. setting>storage>Software Upgrade, i’m gonna give this a go, once i make a back up off that file in case it doesn’t work. i report back on how it went.

  17. Nilan Munn says:

    Update: I was able to flash the firmware with B508 rom, using the above method seems to get rid of the verify check error. Flashing the normal option came up with a error and put the phone in a frozen state on boot-up, at this stage i thought for sure that i’ve bricked my phone, but then i tried the force flashing option and it worked and continued to the end.
    Right now all seems well. thanks all for your help, hope this might help some one as well.

  18. anup says:

    can i try this on huawei T9200?is huawei u9200 and huawei t9200 same?will my phone brick if i try this?

  19. Irvan says:

    Hi Shashank,,,
    after we install this “jelly bean firmware”, and if someday Huawei release the “official jelly bean” for ascend P1, can we upgrade the phone to the officially jelly bean??????

  20. anup says:

    do u have any links for t9200? any custom roms jelly bean…i bought this huawei t9200 in china..i realy want to instal jellybean, but dnt seems to find any on the internet…plz help me bro…

  21. Nilan Munn says:

    How do you get the Google apps working, i’ve downloaded the file, is there a link to this procedure?

    Also wanted to say thanks again for all your help in getting JB on my phone, and for those interested in the procedure i’m sorry i did not reply as i did not get any e-mail notifications, so did not know, and with being some what busy as well.
    Here is the link for any one that gets the version list verify fail error, i take no credit for this workaround .I’ve tried almost everything, and only this worked for me. So if you have a similar problem, it is likely the bootloader is locked, which makes putting even a touch recovery system on your device really difficult. I hope this is of help to some one, but please proceed with caution as i can not be held responsible if you brick your device. Here is the link by Senior member fasst, good luck.

  22. Nilan Munn says:

    Sorry, the link was removed, apologies if i have not observed site rules. For any one interested search XDA Developers website for U9200, there’s a few on there, the post is named Rooting Huawei Ascend P1 U9200 and on page 7 you will find a post by a senior member fasst who lists the procedure for changing firmware references to match the one you want to flash.Good luck.

    hello supports the French language? thank

  24. Amow says:

    Hi Nilan,

    I found the post you referred to at XDA, I modified the build.prop file and changed all B226 to B113 or B219 but was still unable to let the P1 update the JB firmware. How did you modify the build.prop

  25. Nilan Munn says:

    Sorry for my late response, was on holiday, Amow i don’t know if you were able to install JB on your device, Did you try flashing it by holding down the volume down button and power button at the same time, as this method worked for me as the normal flashing method did not work and put the phone in a frozen state.
    let me know if your still having issues and i will try to help you.

  26. Nilan Munn says:

    Amow, i think you have to change the reference to B508 (in full, as specified by poster) put the downloaded JB firmware in to the dload folder on your device, you should have update.app in this folder. Now try flashing the normal way, if that does not work try flashing as above.
