Root it with Gingerbreak http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=578771&d=1303829207. That one works well with the 2.2.2

Hi, I recently rooted my phone with 'Gingerbreak' from the link in post
#32. My MetroPCS Huawei Ascend rooted fine and titanium is working with it, but when I try to uninstall some system apps such as MetroBackUp I receive an error. It says "Cannot remove system app" "Failed to locate the apk file."

Any ideas why this is happening? USB debug is on and I'm running Froyo 2.2

Phone - Huwai Ascend with 2.2 software

Hey guys, hate to be a pain, but I tried rooting my phone 5 times now, every time I root it with the z4root, it has the loading ball and says things at the bottom, then the phone jumps right back to the app screen.

I un-installed and re-installed z4root 5 times now and get the samee thing, i tried everything, if anyone can explain whats going on PLEASE do so




Step 1 says running explot....
Step 2 says aquiring root shell...

and that's it, jumps back to my app's screen.

Sorry for multiple posts. Figured I would post in different posts so people can see

Downloaded Gingerbreak as stated here

Used Titanium Backup but it wouldn't let me set the option for "Read Write"

So Un-Installed and went with File Expert, and was able to format to Read Write and deleted the files !

Only question I have is - Do I have to re-boot the phone so the apps disappear of the app menu ? Or will the icons stay there ?





UPDATE - WAS ONLY ABLE TO DELETE DOCUMENTS TO GO AND THAT WAS IT, TITANIUM KEEPS SAYING "FAILED TO LOCATE THE APK FILE"
for any other app trying to get deleted

Thanks for everyone's help! Gingerbreak worked fantastic and Root Explorer did the trick as well. Even discovered when Root Explorer was mounted as r/w, it allowed me to use Titanium Backup functions that would only work on the purchased version. Great stuff!!!

Angry Bloatware problems

New os installed recently on my huawei ascend through the metro site, titanium back is saying when i try ti uninstall that it cannot find the apk file to uninstall, and these programs are draining my battery like mad. I did the z4root before on the previous OS, and on this OS i did the ginger break. So I do have everything setup, just don't know how to get rid of this bloatware in this new setup.

I was able to figure it out.

But my market app did not change at when i upgrade to 2.2. Does anyone know how to change this? I also want to change the Metro Boot screen to something else. Does anyone know how to do this?

install a2sd and you will have tons of memory, but you have to be on 2.2 or higher.

I couldn't buy the paid version of Root Explorer and I don't know of a free version, so I'm using Root App Remover. It won't allow me to uninstall the "user apps" Like Loopt, Uno, Virtual Card, Pocket Express and My Extras (Which is the one I hate the most!) Any guidance would be aprreciated.

Also, more importantly, since the 2.2 update I noticed that the older versions of some things on my phone are still there (Calendar, contacts, camera, dialer, etc.) ..in Root App Explorer, for example, it shows two Camera settings, one being the older v1.3 and the newer version on top of it, v2.2.2. Is it safe to remove the older versions of these things?

I apologize in advance if these questions have been already answered or in a different forum.

PM, if possible, but I will try to keep track of the thread for an answer.

go to your phone browser, or just download 4shared, the app (or internet) and type in "gingerbreak" and download v.1.2 and see what happens. if it still says a error than go to settings->application->and make sure the first option is checked "Uknown sources"
