haha thanks

but with the settings at that, my phone doesnt seem to have any performance upgrade.

now, the only bloat i have taken off so far is uno and midnight bowling. i am not sure what all i want to get rid of for sure so still thinking there. but, i thought the overclock would have me noticing more but not yet.

Congrats Brinasia! Thanks for sharing your success with us here at the Forum.

As for other CPU setting apps. I know of only one free one and I haven't used it but it does have 5 stars:

CPU Super

Available at the market. Let me know how it works for you? We keep ours set at 600Mhz max and around 245Mhz min (ondemand).

Good job and good luck!

I'm trying to get this whole rooting thing started, but I can't get past the first few steps. Whenever I try to download that z4root file, it says I don't have enough space. I've tried using the Dolphin Mini Browser, and I've uninstalled every application I have, except the Market updates :/

Are you saying that you uninstalled the stock applications that came with your phone?

Also, who is your carrier? MetroPCS or Cricket?

(Sorry to hear you are having problems!)

No no, I uninstalled the applications I've gotten since getting my phone. I'm with Cricket.
It was saying that there wasn't enough space, so I thought deleting some applications would free up some space, but it hasn't helped at all.

What you do now is open up these apps one at a time. I would begin with:

GO Launcher

Open it and then enable it. You should see a change in the way your home screen looks. If you don't, re-boot (turn off and turn back on) your phone. Then press menu and preferences and select the settings you want. You will have to experiment with it a bit before you get it the way you want.

I don't have GO Launcher. I have LauncherPro so I can't help you with those.

Juice Defender


Basically you just open it up and it will show in green that it is 'enabled'. It also gives you the opportunity to get Ultimate Juice (paid for app) that boosts JD. It's up to you. But when you have JD enabled it runs all the time and you will have a little icon up at the top left in your notification bar that it is working.

CPUBoost


Sorry I am not familiar with this app, however, again you open it up and you want to set it so that the settings are at 600Mhz max and the minimum will be around 245 (approx). It will perform a search and then you just set it to that. Check the box that says "set on boot" if available.

I have mine set 'on demand'. I would imagine that CPU Boost has that option as well.

You can't hurt it so don't worry. Just play with the settings until it shows up as I have basically described.

Dolphin Browser


This is just an extra browser that you can use to download things that your stock browser won't always allow from the internet. If you try to download an app (for example) and the download is unsuccessful, try with you Dolphin. Then go into File Manager and click on the SD icon (top right) find it in your SD card and open it up.

I hope this helps!

Did you try re-booting and where are you trying to download the app from and how?

Good deal! Be sure to backup any apps first before you uninstall them. Also, right now there is some question as to how easy it is to restore them so until we may the appropriate modification to the first post on this thread, it would be best to 'freeze' the apps instead of uninstalling them. You can more easily 'defrost' them.

A quick question, and I'll edit this post with any further questions so as not to spam the thread up.

Should the free version of Titanium Backup get rid of all the bloatware? Or am I gonna need to get the pro version?

The free will do it just fine! Just be sure to click allow when prompted to give it permissions.

Mmk, I've gotten rid of the couple of programs that I really don't need. Where do I go from here? I'm kinda lost.

I know I wanna try to get into customizing the UI of my phone, like they're doing here;
Post your Android Desktop

And I wanna do anything I can to get it running smoother, and with less lag. I've played with my friends Droid X and it runs smooth as all get out, yet any live wallpaper I try on my Ascend has hugely noticeable lag. Any recommendations on either front?

Have you installed a new launcher yet? That helps and also clearing your cache helps bigtime.

I recommend LauncherPro for your Launcher and Cache Mate for clearing your cache.

FYI...the Ascend will never have the performance your friend's Droid X does. In this instance (compared to other droids) you really do get more than what you paid for, but it's not going to perform like the more elite smart phones.

Maybe when the Froyo comes out it will improve on the lag but for now it is what it is.

As for live wallpaper it is going to slow your phone down so it just depends on what is more important to you...live wallpaper or performance.

Personally I sacrifice a bit of performance for my live aquarium wallpaper cause the little fishies give me pleasure. ::P

Default A couple more screenshots of my desktop!



You can see how I just downloaded some stuff at the top and also in one of them my battery was about shot! LOL

Here I am using LauncherPro Plus and the background is Aquarium Donation Live Wallpaper.

This was fun!

I used the 'Screenshot' app from the market to take the pics. I set it to take them when I shake the camera with a 5 second delay.

Then to view them you just go into File Manager, SD card and find Screenshots and there they are.

After that you transfer them to your computer and Voila! Your Desktop!!!

Hi! Be sure to go to >menu >settings>applications >check 'unknown sources'

Also, if you have further probs downloading it with your stock browser, try the dolphin mini browser.

Hi and welcome! Yes that's the correct way to do it. Please read the post just above this one to further help you.

Also, with Titanium Backup...back up all your apps and system just as soon as you get rooted BEFORE you backup and uninstall anything. If you have any doubts...just freeze the app instead of uninstalling. Much easier to restore this way.

Okay, it's a shame I didn't stumble upon this thread before rooting my Huawei Ascend from Metro. Unfortunately, i deleted things with Google in it, and now i can't download from the Market. I also deleted titanium back up after rooting. Im guessing there is absolutely no way possible in which i can get my google stuff back? oreven reset my phone?

Okay...first you need to go to the forum at xda and register.

Then make sure the USB debugging is enabled on your phone and that you have the unknown sources checked.

Then go to the market and download the free: Dolphin Mini Browser

Then go back to the link provided in the top post of this thread and download the file.

It should work.

Then open up File Manager and click on the top right icon (SD card) and you will find it in there.

Then proceed to unroot.

See if this helps you.

I think that there is a recovery image that has just come out for the MetroPCS Ascend but I don't have the link and not sure I am correct.

Can you get to your SD Card to see if the files you uninstalled are still there? Did you back them up first? See if they are there and then come back. In the meanwhile I hope that someone else with Metro will show up who can give you some better information.

I'll try to find the link for the recovery if it is here.

akent47 ....try this:

Try going to setting/applications and find the market app. Clear data and cache. reboot and see if market works.

If it does download Titanium Backup again and then read the first post here about how to restore them. There is a link there which is a guide to backup and restore with Titanium.

See if that can help you.

I can't find the link to the MetroPCS recovery. Like I said I'm not sure it even exists yet.

Thats because you deleted Google Talk, didn't you. The Market needs Google Talk,thats why you can't download anything

Jazz I have told akent why Market is failing. I believe NY 11275 has the link to Google Talk. This is turning out to be a colaborative project. I know how to solve Akents problem. Akent hold on well get your market working again

@jazziete

Hello Jazziete, thank you very much. Once I downloaded the Dolphin mini browser then everything worked.

I have another question because I am stuck

I downloaded the titanium back up and I am reading the moderator article (the one that is at the beginning of this thread) and it is my understanding that he is recommending (the moderator) for us to download the titanium back up which i did and then what?????

1. I rooted the phone
2. I downloaded Titatnium back up
3. In titanium back up there are three tabs (Overview, BAckup /restore, and schedules) I went to back up /restore and backed up everything


AND NOW WHERE SHOULD I GO OR DO?

That's great Scorpion! Now you can simply 'freeze' the apps you don't want. For now don't uninstall them. They are easier to 'defrost'.

Look at the lists on the second and third posts in this thread to see what you can and cannot delete. (freeze)

Go back up to the first post and begin following the steps again after Titanium.

Let me know how it's all going!

Cheers!!!

PS...You might want to take a look at the 'Favorite Apps for Huawei Users' thread. It lists some of the apps we all like the most.

I'm so glad it worked for you! Stick around and share your phone experiences if you have some extra time! We have a pretty active forum here (even if it is small). LOL

There is no free SetCPU but you may find the .apk on the Internet for free. Try a search for setcpu.apk and you might find it for free.
