Few days ago Android 4.4.2 beta official firmware got leaked on the internet. We have published an article about it here – http://huaweinews.com/2014/01/android-4-4-beta-ascend-p6/ and until now, thousands of people read it and downloaded the leaked firmware from our servers. At the end of that article we have promised you that we would write a separate guide about how to install Google Apps and a custom recovery. Many of you also asked about it in the comments and here is how to do that.

These Chinese firmwares doesn’t include Google Apps and only way to install it, is by using a custom recovery like TWRP or CWM. We have wrote a guide about installing TWRP on Ascend P6 running Android 4.2 jelly bean firmwares – http://huaweinews.com/2013/11/twrp-recovery-ascend-p6/ but Android 4.4 KitKat isn’t compatible with the older TWRP recovery which was used in Android 4.2.

XDA member “surdu_petru” who is the same developer worked on the TWRP for Android 4.2 has now ported latest TWRP to the Ascend P6 running leaked official Android 4.4.2 firmware. According to him every option of TWRP is working. Here’s what you need before flashing this recovery on your Ascend P6


* You need to be running the leaked official Android 4.4.2 firmware prior installing this recovery
* Flashing this recovery is done through Android platform tools on Android SDK
