So you’ve had enough with having the Huawei Ascend P7 rooted and unlocked from the factory resections. That’s fine because you can just unroot the device again. By unrooting the device, you are taking away everything you did in order to get the root access in the first place. Since there is no additional security with this device, that means that everything will work just like it did before you decided to root the phone. That means the warranty will work again, all those added security benefits work again and you should find this guide even works well for unbricking your device.
The Files You Need
- Download the stock ROM from the P7 from this page.
Unrooting The Huawei Ascend P7
- Download the extract the stock ROM file to the desktop of the computer. You should find the Update.app file inside.
- Connect the Huawei Ascend P7 to the computer.
- Open the P7 smartphone’s storage on the computer.
- Create a folder and name it ‘dload’. You need that folder to be on the root of the SD card storage. Furthermore, that’s the internal SD card we are referring you to.
- Once you have that done, click and drag or copy and paste the Update.app file over to that newly created dload folder on the root of the SD card.
- Completely power down the P7 smartphone. You can normally do that two ways. Either long-press the Power button until it’s off, or quickly press Power, followed by selecting the Switch Off option.
- Reboot the device by holding the Power + Volume Down + Volume Up buttons.
- Doing so won’t reboot your device to recovery mode or anything like that. It should, however, automatically start installing that stock ROM on your device.
- Do not touch any buttons until that ROM is flashed.
- Reboot your device when it’s done and you now don’t have any root access. You might find the device reboots itself. if that does happen, you don’t need to do it a second time.
- What you can do though is install the root checker app. usually we use this to check if we have root access when following a rooting guide. In this instance, we are wanting it to check we don’t have that root access. It’s a great idea to check before sending it away for free repairs under warranty.
