Huawei don’t have good reputation when it comes to releasing latest software updates for its smartphones. If you are one of those P7 users who have been anxiously waiting for Android 5.0 Lollipop update for their device then how good it would be if you can have glimpse of Lollipop?
If you are un-patient guy like me and can’t wait for the official Android 5.0 Lollipop firmware for Ascend P7, then there is a good news for you. An Android developer has released Lollipop themed custom ROM for P7 that will give almost same feel and interface except that it is actually KitKat based.
One good thing about this custom ROM is that it is completely bloatware free and all Huawei stock apps are replaced by AOSP/CM apps. As far as Lollipop features are concerned, the ROM user-interface is complete Lollipop based including Lollipop fonts, full sounds, boot animation, lock screen and material design.
- First thing is to have your Ascend P7 fully charged before you proceed with this custom ROM installation.
- Secondly, it is highly recommend to have complete backup of all your important data.

Step 1: Once the required files are downloaded, place the zip on your desktop.
Step 2: Connect your mobile to your computer and transfer the downloaded zip file to your Ascend P7.
Step 3: Turn Off your smartphone and boot it to recovery mode. For that, press and hold “Volume Up + Down + Power” buttons to boot your P7 to TWRP recovery.
Step 4: Now I recommend to first choose the “Backup”option to store backup of all your data.
Step 5: Once done with backup, tap on “Wipe” option and then “Advanced Wipe” to wipe previous ROM and clear Dalvik Cache, System, Data and Cache.
Step 6: After that, tap on “Install”option and browse for the transferred zip file to install Android 5.0 Lollipop themed custom ROM on Huawei Ascend P7.
Step 7: Once installation is completed, reboot your device. Please note that for first reboot, it might take few minutes.’
