Hello and welcome to the Forum. If you want to know what's going on the best way to find out is to read the first post and then a few of the latest posts.

Hello. I just got my phone and joined this great forum this week. I'm really hoping I get woke up to a text saying "Go here for your update" (I'm a light sleeper anyway). I can't wait to get SU (aka root) access but have been holding off in case the upgrade DOES come tomorrow. Either way I'm doing it when I wake up. It's my day off and mostly dedicated to starting to get the most out of this phone. Thank you to everyone who has already added to my knowledge (I've spent as much time as I could reading the various threads here)!

angry birds has always worked on ascend, you just need to know how to make it, open angry birds app, wait a few seconds for screen to change, hit the power button to go into standby, when screens cuts off, wait then hit power again and unlock phone, this give angry birds priority for some reason and it works great, should start right up, it didnt work on my first try so if it doesnt for you try again, theres a little timing involved, if you dont believe me search the trick does work, ive played angry birds on my cricket 2.1 ascend so I know it works

I'm running a 2.2 rom that was posted on myascend and angry birds loads right up on it no problems. Hopefully when the official rom comes it will work the same way and not require work arounds to get it to work.

Nothing can be confirmed until it is actually out there to be obtained. There have been rumors flying around about Froyo on the Ascend for at least 3 months now, so unless you see it, don't believe it. Any other question is moot until the day an update is officially in our midst.

That's exactly what I mean. All kinds of stories from all kinds of places, including whoever it was that posted here swearing up and down that he saw a MetroPCS manager's company email saying Froyo would be released about now. I believe in having faith, but for things like this, I would rather see it first. Otherwise I'm getting my hopes up for nothing.

He claimed HE had been deceived? He said he saw an inter-office email and was told by at least 2 or 3 different stores over the phone. He was the only one doing any deceiving.
I was really glad to see the post yesterday from you Jazziette. There are a few of you on here who's posts are actually informational and never ego driven. For somebody fairly new to this, like myself, That is extremely nice to see.

I heard from a friend, who heard from another friend, who heard from their cousin, who's boyfriend is a janitor at Huawei's headquarters, that we're getting the 2.2 update sometime within the next few years.

Still no official word on the Ascend 2.2 upgrade but I did see on the Cricket Wireless Facebook page this mornnig that it is official that the Kyocera Zio will definitely be getting the 2.2 upgrade this coming week. The users there are about to lynch the poor guy who posts for Cricket there. LOL

When Ascend users there ask about the 2.2 upgrade they still get the standard answer that Cricket doesn't have any info at this time. So there ya have it!

It's sad this whole metro ascend 2.2 thing turned out to be a hoax. I actually thought that guy was legit. I'm usually not so gullible.

Good find. This looks real. I don't know why someone wouldn't have discovered this by now if the date is correct, though. CAUTION!! IF YOU CLICK THE SECOND LINK, SOMETHING BEGINS DOWNLOADING AUTOMATICALLY!! I'm not going to be the guinea pig. Hopefully this is for real, though.

LOL Early!!!! I'm more like the Huawei Forum Terror! hahaha !!!

Thanks! We have a great group of folks here and as you have seen we are fiercely defensive of our Ascends that we love! I absolutely love the interaction with the other users and just like them I'm learning as I go along.

Thanks so much for the excellent moderating and attention you and some of the other mods (namely Xyro, SoFlo and UBrocked) have given to the Ascend Forum to help it grow and be more functional.

You are more appreciated than you know!

BIG HUGS!!!

Sorry to hear that. Have you tried flashing back to stock and starting all over?

This is why (in spite of wanting to do it) I'm waiting for the official to come out. Hope you get it working!

I've been having to use a lot of self discipline to keep from doing it...I will admit!

No, nothing I consider really official. I did speak with a Cricket tech two or three days ago who offered me the info that the upgrade is forthcoming and soon. That's all I know firsthand.

If intuition counted for anything on here I would say we are about two to three weeks away. And a lot of that comes from seeing how they have handled the Zio update, which they actually haven't officially released. LOL Sprint did get it yesterday and it's working for a lot of Cricket users too.

Can't speak for MetroPCS. I don't have any clue what they are doing but I assume the same thing.

From what I've seen with Cricket they dangle the carrot for two to three weeks. I'm thinking they have to wait for code from the manufacturer and then go through training with their cust svc and techs and wait for new phones to ship in with stock 2.2 on them. This is what they did with tie Zio. The day before they announced an update was forthcoming they pulled the Zio out of the lineup. They won't put it back until they release the update and I don't think they will release it until they have phones in stock with froyo...the Zio.

Wish it were the Ascend! LOL

just out of curiosity like the cat but in a stupid way could you mod the zio 2.2 update since both the ascend and zio are very close in comparison?

HAHAHAHA!!! Sorry! That just made me spit out my drink!!! LOL

So typical of customer service!!! They really should think of a different name for it, something like Customer Agitation. Everytime I have to talk to them I get so freaking annoyed it's incredible!

LOL

She didn't even know what Android was? OMG!!!!

hahaha

I called a rep and asked him if he's expecting in any type of adapter for the Android 3.5 mm headsets. He said, "They don't make phones with those kind of sizes." I was like "Go look at Huawei Ascend. Compare it to any other phone." came back on the line "OOH. I see" ....(Silence)..."But no, We don't sell any type of adapter here". I really wanted to say "Kinda figured, Since you thought all jack sizes were universal..." but I refrained.

LOL! Why am I not surprised! The day my Ascend came in I went to the local corp store to get a blue tooth, which they didn't have the kind I wanted natch, and had my first experience with their total lack of knowledge. The first time I had to call in for support, like the second day, the rep who took my call asked me to hold while she got the manual.

I found Android Forums that day!

I think you might be seeing them. No one was interested in any custom roms for the zio when it had only 1.6 but with 2.2 things should change. However, the Ascend has become the phone of choice for the techies now so I think you will still see more concentration and effort there.

Hi SOnia! Nothing ....repeat...NOTHING...is set in stone yet. It all sounds good but until we get 'offical word' (that means a link to a reliable source such as the Cricket website or Fanpage or Huawei.com) confirming the update, we don't really know anything. Stay tuned for mo betta info as we get it.

We tend to grasp at straws around here. LOL
