    I am one of many and yes many of HUAWEI Ascend W1 users, even DEVELOPERS, that wanted to upgrade to HUAWEI Ascend W1
    I've been trying for many times until few minutes ago the 5th try and yet failed
    The problem is getting the error 80188309 on 96% in the step saying "Preparing to install", the error says it's downloaded but couldn't be opened !

    In this thead, I'll be resuming all the details about the issue,
    I've posted yesterday a thread about it with over +2500 visits [until now] and +40 replies, same for another post and not only in WPCentral but also
    We've been attacking Microsoft website

    Eli, a Microsoft employee in Windows Phone community asked us to provide some details including Model, OS version, firmware version, operator and country !
    for more details you can check this link

    As many of people tried to get a solution by Googling or binging it, we are all sure that the issue is related to HUAWEI as it won't roll out the update to both W1 and W2
    Microsoft technical support is trying to help, at first they said it requires additional space but even phones with 8GB of memory and 4.5 FREE wasn't able to install it so it's not a memory issue even the update is (average) 300 MB

    Some member called Taixx commented this link on my other post about the issue
    it shows up a W1 running the WP 8.1 !

    so guys, any one succeeded in running 8.1 in his HUAWEI yet ?
    Seems HUAWEI gonna "HURT" us and maybe some of you will trade his W1 for only 3 eggs ...

    Seriously we've to attack and fix this issue, let's do more attacks in Microsoft Windows Phone forums, keep contacting Microsoft's technical support and doing some attacks in social networks including Twitter and Facebook

    It's not just Huawei phones, there are also a few Nokia and HTC phones that have this problem. Others were solved by updating the firmware or by trying again for a few times. But it is possible to have 8.1 on W1, there are a couple threads here Huawei Ascend W1 - Windows Phone Central Forums
