Make any sense?

Huawei is stepping up to the plate with handsets now. And it appears they are going to be aggressive about it!

This is exactly what I am seeing:

During the upgrade, do not remove the battery or SD card.

Make sure that the battery level is sufficient.

>Cancel (or) >Confirm
You need to download it to save it to your SD card. THATS WHY ITS CALLED SD CARD Update. The update doesnt appear magically on your SD card.

Well!!! I thought it might have downloaded itself. I mean...it could, couldn't it? There sure are a lot of other things on my SD card that seem to have magically appeared! Not kidding either!!! LOL

In fact...when I had it opened up on my PC the other night I was amazed. There are two PDF files in there too and I only looked at one of them. I wonder if the upgrade it in it!!!

Oh wait...it's gonna be announced formally!!! I forgot!!!!

we know you have to daownload it to the SD card then upload it to the phone. was just saying that with the metro ascend you couldn't even access that area yet so they did do something to the phone. and i just talked to a friend of mine at metro corp store and she said that they are having a meeting on the ascend and forte on the 25th but not sure what its about

Yes correct . The reason why you find some files on your SD card is because when you download programs or apps, they store or create files in your SD card. P.S. I didnt mean my previous posts in a bad way . Im just providing factual info. Please don't take anything I say in a bad way

Oh yeah! I keep forgetting this thing is basically a Mac! I would be afraid to perform this upgrade through the phones browser. What if you lost your connection during the download. Not a good thing.

PS...I always take everything you say in a fun way! You don't have to worry...you can be yourself! (Now that I got to know more what 'yourself' is all about! LOL)

I showed some guy at work my phone today cus he has the Huawei M750, and hates it, so he assumed the M860 was junk. He's seen them before but all stock, so I told him last week, I'll catch him sometime at work and have it on me, so today I showed him, and thought it was a different phone than the one he saw :P haha... I told him I hacked it.. cus I can't say root, cus most people don't even know about that kind of stuff, so i said hack...told him I removed all bunch if pre-installed junk, changed the UI, added a new keyboard, showed him how I changed the SMS and stuff, and now he likes it :P

Again, I agree. Nothing was there before and now something is there. This is on Metro.

I know the update will be delivered OTA or via a DL link.

You guy's stay up way to late for me. Lol.

I got my Accend just before Christmas, it had 2.1 installed. But within a week or two, I had an update, and now if you look in the settings it says: 2.1-update1

But, if I go to the storefront or whatever, the screen says Android 2.2 at the bottom.
So, I assume that this update was the 2.2 update, I'm just very new to the system and I guess no matter how much I update it will continue to say 2.1-update2,3,4,etc.

I did get this update in Settings, About Phone, Online Update. I occassionally check that and it lets you know if you are up to date.

If there are other ways to check this, etc. I would love to hear about them.

I also did clean up the phone a bit by doing a temp. Root (unrooted after reboot). But do not have it permanently rooted.

On a different topic(sorry, just while I'm here): Why leave it rooted all the time, when I can root, do what I like, then return to standard operation? I guess I need to learn more about it, but if someone understands my point....I'd appreciate the input...
Thanks....

The advantage of Permenant Root is that some of the App's I run require root access to run. Titanium Backup, Overclock Widget, Cache Cleaner and Cache Mate all require root access to run.

I found this interesting thread at Howard Forums. It goes through the upgrade process. I'm not sure what update this is referring to but maybe someone else can help to decipher it.

It does give one the idea of how the upgrade (from Cricket) will be delivered:

Official Huawei M860 Software Update

it is referring to the Android 2.1.1 update. Thats why your phone reads version 2.1.1 update-1.

I am with Cricket. I just checked my running services and I don't have that. I'm thinking it is preparing your phone for the 2.2 upgrade. If I were you I would put it on the charger but don't turn it off.

Update to previous response:

Just found out from another MetroPCS user that what you are seeing in running processes is a standard message. It's always there.

So....it's nothing to worry about. You'll know about the 2.2 for sure when it's available. How I don't know but I know you will.

Keep checking back in.

The latest from Cricket: They don't know anything at all about the Ascend getting a 2.2 upgrade. The Zio is scheduled to upgrade to either 2.1 or 2.2 in the next couple of weeks.

That was straight from the horses mouth (Cricket's not mine LOL ) just a few minutes ago!

So....there ya have it folks. We can stop fidgeting now and just enjoy our phones.

It is not preparing. The update your phone was getting was not 2.2. It is 2.1.1 update-1, which is an update every ascend user gets when they use the phone for the first time

You don't have it because you already received the update , not the 2.2 update though , the update every ascend user gets when they use the phone for the first time . P.S. No phone prepares for any update

If you can get to the apk's and odex's, extract the sytem apps and copy them to /system/app. Don't quote me on this one since the huawei way is kind of new to me but, only removing sytem apps won't mess up the upgrade. It's havng custom roms signed with different keys than the original rom that block the upgrade.
