HOW TO INSTALL A CUSTOM RECOVERY ON HUAWEI ASCEND Y520

  1. Download the SP Flash Tool from this link [2].
  2. Download the required scatter file from this link [3].
  3. Download the CWM Recovery package from this link [4].
  4. Turn off the Huawei Ascend Y520 completely by holding down the Power button for a maximum of 10 seconds.
  5. Extract the SP Flash Tool by right-clicking > extract here on the desktop and run it so it’s open.
  6. Upload your scatter file and the CWM file to the Flash Tool.
  7. Connect the Ascend Y520 smartphone to the computer with the USB cable (with it still turned off completely).
  8. Click the ‘Download’ button from the Flash Tool’s user-interface and the custom recovery file wil be downloaded to your device.

Wait until it tells you that your device is done with the flashing and then reboot your smartphone directly to recovery mode using the hardware button combination for that. Sometimes a custom recovery can be wiped during the first time boot and replaced by the stock recovery if you do not boot the device directly to the new CWM Recovery you just flashed.
