    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.


    Windows Phone 8 SDK and Developer Account
    Qualcomm USB Driver
    Qualcomm USB Driver (for manual installation)
    Simple I/O Driver (unsigned)
    Qualcomm Support Tool
    Custom Bootloader
    Windows Phone 8.1 Update-ROM (GDR1)
    Custom ROM incl. Flashing-Tool

    You can find a full written-guide here.

    Hope you like it!

    Best Regards,

    This doesn't work anymore, Microsoft stopped the 8.1 updates for a while. Although I've heard people still getting the updates on their lumias so I assume they've only stopped distributing the update to huawei devices, because the one and only gdr1 rom that is capable cannot get the update anymore.

    Also, the stock rom you posted is GDR2, there's only 1 W1-u00 rom that comes with storage manager and it is this rom.
