Phone stuck in DownloadMode

Just for fun, while my phone was off, I held VOL down and plugged in a USB wire into my phone. This put it in downloadmode and windows recognizes it as "blaze".


Now my phone is stuck. Its a Huawei Ascend P1 so I can't take out the battery, and from what I've read that doesn't really help.


It's on stock firmware so I'm I haven't done anything unrecoverable, but I am afraid it might be stuck like that forever, if I don't do something,

Hold power until it restarts? Worst case scenario, flash a new blaze image using odin.

wait until the batter completely drains.
then charge the battery until it is at least 10% connect the phone while odin is open and wait until it detects it.
then select reboot.

I'm going to start letting the battery die now. What is odin? I was planning on using "fastboot reboot" to restart he device, but I can't find those damn "blaze" drivers.

All the forums I've searched through say that the standard drivers will work. But it keeps popping up as Blaze. I've already installed
Android SDK Tools
Android SDK Platform-tools
Andriod Support Library
SDK Platform
ARM EABI v7a System Image
Google USB Drivers
I've even tried install HiSuite

Using Windows 8 64bit. Maybe I should disable that 64bit driver signature thing?



EDIT: I wish I knew how to delete threads. I don't why the Android category didn't appear before, but now it does. I installed the standard drivers and now it works. Now time to install TWRP v2.4.4.0

TWRP have the ability to root your device. This will work on all Huawei-firmwares!
1. Download TWRP v2.4.4.0 (img). Unzip it, and place the .IMG in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools" folder.
2. Turn off your phone. Restart it while holding volume down (Fastboot mode). Connect your phone via USB
3. In the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools", hold shift while right click. Choose "open command window here"
5. Write "fastboot devices" to verify that the computer detects your device. If not detected, you failed install Fastboot drivers. (Look at the top of this guide)
6. Write "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img". This will flash/ install TWRP to your device.
7. Boot into recovery (TWRP)
→ Go to the "Mount" menu and mount System.
→ Then go to the Reboot menu and reboot the system.
→ When it detects you are not rooted TWRP will ask if you want to root.
→ Swipe to do so and let it boot back into the system.
8. Hit the SuperSU icon and let it setup for the first time. Either by downloading a flashable zip or by going to the Play Store.
9. You should now be rooted


does anyone know how to do step 7? I've tried adb reboot recovery, but that doesn't work


edit2: I just rebooted it normally and went into recovery normally.


Sorry for creating this unnecessary thread.

a better question is. did you root and install a custom recovery before this happened or are you running stock rom?
