So, go to Menu – Settings – About phone and tap several times on Built Number; after that, just find your way to Menu – Settings – Developer options from where it’s time to tick the USB debugging field.

Are you sure of the fact that there is enough battery life left on your Huawei Ascend P7? If not, you must charge your smartphone before doing anything else as long as if it gets turned off in the middle of the flashing process, it can get bricked and it’s only your fault to assume.
