z4root won't work for the A2, it only works on Android 2.2.1 or below. You can try Gingerbreak, which may or may not work, or you can try the guide in this thread:

how do you downgrade your ascend from 2.3.5 to 2.3.3? By the way I have a Huawei Ascend II and my carrier is cricket. Thanks for any help.

There are instructions out there on the web and here actually with this info. You must flash the original recovery and flash 2.3.3, then root. It's a fairly simple flash of a .zip file. Then you can proceed to upgrade or just install custom ROMs.
