You need the drivers. There is a link around here somewhere.

I found the drivers but I'm not having any luck after installing them, my card still shows up as a CD Drive.

Not a stupid question but yes, however I'm not receiving the normal:
"USB debugging connected", even though it's on, nor am I receiving:
"If you turn on USB storage...." OK or Cancel prompt after choosing to Turn On USB Storage.

I don't get a debugging alert as well, but when i tap on the usb storage under the little android guy it never gives me a response it just connects. It did give a debugging alert before on one of the roms. Hmmm.

Looking at the sdcard in Root Explorer shows it has full read write access, so I'm guessing I need a way to get the USB drivers onto the phone??

Just outta curiosity, there's a folder in system/cdrom/autorun.iso that I've not seen before nor do I have on my LG's.
Any chance that might be the culprit??

You got me there. I know in stock the autorun is suppose to install the drivers but in cm's it was changed to save space. I just used my wife's phone to install the drivers and it just worked. I'm lost at why it's not working for you.

Well, I thank you for the back and forth. I'll keep plugging away tomorrow or maybe someone will have an epiphany for me overnight as I'm hitting the hay.

Thanks again MoneyHoarder87

i am currently running Icarus 1.1, and its awesome but i was thinking about trying cm7. when i tried to install cwm 3.0.0.5, 3.0.2.4 and 3.0.2.8 each one gets stuck at the red and black huawei screen instead of loading into recovery mode. cwm 2.5.1.8 installed flawlessly when i installed icarus. and i just reinstalled it to make sure that it would work again. and it worked. for some reason when i try the newer cwm's they won't work for me. any help would be appreciated. thanks in advance. i hope this is ok to ask in this thread.

How to install ICARUS 1.1 by Isaacj87
Quote:
NOTE: You will need ClockworkMOD recovery v2.5.1.8. Now, I realize that CWM has been pushed to and it IS a higher version, however it comes at a price. The current kernel we use (2.6.29-perf) has not be built to support the EXT4 filesystem. CWM 3.0.0.5, as far as I know, will partition SD cards to use EXT4. We need a recovery that is reliable, built properly and supports our phone and its current filesystems. Should newer kernels be released, this will be a non-issue
Hope that helps.

You can install CM7 with the old cwm. All roms, except icarus, can be flashed with any cwm. So just flash cm7. By the way it should not boot in to recovery(vol up,call,power) you should bootloader screen(vol down,end call, power) then run the three files and it will work. I have upgraded to every cwm just change the .img file and run them. Hope this helps.

Could someone look through their system files for me and give me a copy of the USB drivers folder?

i did run the three files in the bootloader screen and once i pull the battery for 30 secs and boot into recovery it shows the white and red huawei sign, then the black and red huawei sign and never boots into recovery. the reason i tried the other cwm's is because no matter what i do cwm 2.5.1.8 will not flash cm6 or cm7 for me. i followed topenpoke's guide to the letter and tried many other tut's. it goes through the motion as if it's installing, but when i reboot the system in gets stuck on the cm7 huawei screen. and yes i waited the proper ten minutes. one time i waited an hour and it still wouldn't load. i wonder if it is just my phone. like i said previously icarus installed fine. but i can't get cm6 nor cm7 to install on my phone. and yes i flashed back to stock before trying.

Exclamation Easy wireless fix

For those of you having wireless connection issues at after installing new ROM, I have a solution.

Check your phone for the NEW WIFI MAC address that it received after the ROM install.
Settings>About Phone>Status>Wi-Fi MAC address


For those of you that are security conscious and have locked down your home LAN to only allow wireless access to the MAC addresses in your MAC filter list, you will need to update that list with your phones new MAC addy.

Not to be critical of the folks who so graciously provide the free ROMS and or work to provide detailed information about how to install them BUT, it would have been nice to know that little bit of information as I had no idea that installing a custom ROM would change a phones MAC address.

NOW I don't have to worry so much about the sdcard issue since I can go back to using ESFile Explorer to connect to my LAN. whew!

Got a new problem with CM7.
Initially, the camera worked but the video recorder didn't which I knew going in.
Now I'm receiving Camera Error "Cannot connect to camera", each time I try to load it.

Anyone have an idea as to how to remedy this?

Thank you

No idea on how to fix it but isaac said he did not recommend trying to use the video camera. This might have been why. I'm sure you already know my solution, reflash. But i would wait around until someone else adds their two cents.

Thank you for the response.
The camera is currently back up and running, although it took a power down and not just a simple reboot to bring it back.
What killed the camera for me was the Barcode Scanner app. After clicking on Barcode Scanner it would never initialized so I had to hit the Menu button, which brought up the Force Close or Wait dialog. Waiting didn't work, so I forced it closed and tried the camera which again returned the error previously mentioned.
After playing with the camera again, which runs, but is buggy to the extreme, every application now opens in landscape. Another power down fixed that but geez.

Wow, I'm finding out that CM7 is a buggy mess and I'm only on day 2 of this test drive. Don't get me wrong, I'm very appreciative of the hard work that's involved in creating a ROM but shouldn't a lot of debugging be included in that creation process before it's released to the masses?
I don't mind being a beta tester, hell, I was one of the first members of the PS underground and I beta tested hundreds of games but I knew what I was getting and I didn't have to rely on my PS, PS2 or PS3 to do the things we expect todays smart phones to do without fail.

I'll throw in the being a n00b caveat, so as to hopefully not receive to much heat for my buggy mess comment, but I followed the instructions to a tee and heeded all of the warnings before installing CM7. Unfortunately, while beautiful, sleek and quick, it seems as though CM7 isn't quite ready for prime time, at least not on this Ascend.

Sorry, I hope I don't offend anyone, I'm just really disappointed that CM7 didn't meet my expectations.

Thats why it says WIP (work in progress)

Also, be sure to fill out a bug report and be as detailed as possible.

Please remember that this is a free product (unless you wish to donate), and the dev is doing this in his spare time on a phone he no longer uses or even has service on.

Comments like this are what makes developers throw up their hands and say "screw these ungrateful people". Once again he is doing this for free, on his own time, and it is a work in progress. If you want a bug free experience, use the stock ROM or Icarus.

says this right on the cm7 update page

05042011:
  • Sync with CM repos
  • Tweaked WIFI a bit
  • Fixed copybit permissions, seems to have helped in graphics performance
  • New tweaked stock launcher (see notes)
  • New CM7 feature! You can now clear individual notifications (see notes)
  • Fixed BUILD_ID, we're at 2.3.4 now aren't we?
  • Updated new OTA fingerprint, using Nexus One fingerprint. Market still works.
  • I broke camcorder even more, watch out on that one.
  • Regular clean-up
As has been said this is being done out of the goodness of their hearts...expect bugs...look at cyanogen mod for the updates on whats working and whats not..I love my CM7!!

I followed them to a tee and i was able to flash over to Icarus on my first try! Real Simple and Easy and the Results are AWESOME! My Ascend is so much faster and better than before its sick!

My only Recommendation would be to add some sort of instructional video for the others to follow along with, I used the one from this Thread: How To Install The Icarus MOD (even though the Video and the steps are old, it still shows the process being done which helps tremendously!).

Again Thank you to everyone who Pitched in on this! It is much appreciated!

I reciently address the drivers to the guide. They area at the bottom f the cm6 and 7 guides.

Unfortunately I've not updated to the newest build of cm7 yet. Please visit the wiki.

A friend has found a good metroff that doesn't add the roaming indicator.

I have not had wifi problems so i can't say anything but redownload and reflash.

Please remember that this is a free product (unless you wish to donate), and the dev is doing this in his spare time on a phone he no longer uses or even has service on.

Comments like this are what makes developers throw up their hands and say "screw these ungrateful people". Once again he is doing this for free, on his own time, and it is a work in progress. If you want a bug free experience, use the stock ROM or Icarus.
I know, and that's why I tried to word my disappointment carefully. The last thing I want to do is discourage future development, but most devs, like anyone who creates, expects a certain amount of displeasure to be openly posted and hopefully their constitution is built to handle it.

  • New tweaked stock launcher (see notes)
  • New CM7 feature! You can now clear individual notifications (see notes)
  • Fixed BUILD_ID, we're at 2.3.4 now aren't we?
  • Updated new OTA fingerprint, using Nexus One fingerprint. Market still works.
  • I broke camcorder even more, watch out on that one.
  • Regular clean-up
As has been said this is being done out of the goodness of their hearts...expect bugs...look at cyanogen mod for the updates on whats working and whats not..I love my CM7!!
Tweaked WiFi a bit doesn't tell me, and again I'm an admitted Android n00b, that the MAC addy would be changed. Not a big deal as I finally figured it out but, I've seen posts where people have simply given up trying to make it work and didn't think to look in the phone details for such a change.
As stated before, I knew the camcorder issue going in and was comfortable with it. What I didn't read was that after initiating the camera, every application opened afterwards would open in landscape view. Maybe I have the only phone that this occurred on, as I didn't see any posts about anyone else having this issue.

Thankfully, this is my 15 year old sons phone and he's loving the look and feel of CM7, which is a FAR cry from stock.

Maybe...part of my disappointment also revolves around being the "Can you do that to my phone?" guy. Whether it's family or friends, PC, MAC, iwhatever device, I get the call for modding help. Maybe I'm getting to old for this sheet. NAH, not yet.

Default Update to CWM 3.0.2.8

Hope this may help someone going to CM7.. I take no credit for this.. Just changed the image for Jazziette's CWM Recovery 2.5.1.8 installer that is included in Tokenpoke's Ultimate Ascend Mod Guide to CWM Recovery 3.0.2.8. This will NOT work with Icarus. It will work with Froyo and GB flashes (CM6/7), and also the new version of MetrOFF (1.3, which is linked the CM7 wiki)

Just adding this because it is the reccomended version to flash CM7.. I used it, it worked, thought i'd share.. Follow Tokenpoke's instructions from the original guide and it works just the same..

Great guide by the way Toke..

boot your phone into debug mode (fastboot) press, in order, VOLUME ROCKER DOWN+END (HANG UP)+ POWER. your phone will stay at the huawei screen. attach to pc using usb cord.

open the cwm.zip and extract the files
open the cwm folder
open the following files (you may see the dos box open briefly, this shows it worked all file are labeled according to os, choose for your os)

adb
fastboot
install recovery

unplug your phone from the pc and remove the battery for ten seconds.

boot to cwm VOLUME ROCKER UP+CALL BUTTON+POWER

you should see a black screen with green text. you now have cwm

k so i think i've done everything correct. i turned my phone back on, and the black screen with green text came up, but which of these options am i supposed to choose? do i choose reboot system now?

if you have trying to flash a custom rom, go ahead and wipe everything, not including sd card and afterwards install from sdcard.

Hey all. I was just wondering, now that the tapout ascend is out and running 2.2, would it be possible to just flash a stock recovery of it to a regular ascend?
Then you could just root and remove the bloatware.
If anyone knows how to get the stcok rom for it let me know I will try it.

Default need help!

I just purchased my first smart phone yesterday (cricket huawei ascend) and am excited to hit the ground running with this. All comments/advice is greatly appreciated in advance. I have been combing through this site all day and i think i have mustard up the courage to root and improve performance. However i have a few questions before i begin:

1. you suggest just before you begin to download the metrostockrecover.7z
Does that cover the cricket phones or is their another download for that?

2. should i be using my phones browser to access these links for downloading the apps (ei: z4root.1.3.0.apk) in your article?

3. How much did titanium backup pro cost u?

4. Did you ever expand the cricket bloat list?

best advise would to install cm6 or cm7 and it comes rooted already, you just need to download the files for which ever one you want, it only takes about 5 minutes to flash. titu backup free version will work also...and if you plan on taking your phone back to the store, there is a recovery for cricket that will flash your phone back to out of box state

Under contacts you can press menu then export them to your SD card. As far as saving actual text messages, I know GO SMS Pro has an export wizard that will copy all your texts to SD Card also. Pictures and sounds are stored on your SD card. Save a copy of SD Card on hard drive just to make sure things go smoothly along with a Nandroid backup. CM7 it is recommended to format the card afterwards so just copy the files back over off the SD card once everything is loaded up..

Gmash, I might be the other tapout user you're talking about.. After going through a lot of posts on here, I found the above info.
If the quote above is on my behalf, thanks!


I'm going to be trying to put a different ROM on it probably tomorrow, but I'm still kinda confused on the ROM install stuff..

Is Icarus a ROM? If so, why do I need to install it before I install cm6 ROM?

Actually, that was an old post, but I left a response on your other thread about it.

Yes, Icarus is a ROM, and no, you don't have to install it before CM6/7. If you are confused about ROM stuff I would recommend more reading until you're not confused before trying it.

Thanks for this link! I read all about it and I will not be trying this. I'll just wait for the bugs to be worked out of CM7 and flash back to it. In the meantime Icarus 1.1 is great! Thanks Dev's.

May i ask what bugs you are referring to. The last few builds have been bugless, to my knowledge.
