Default Root Explorer... much easier than people are making it seem

Titanium can't find apk after you updated to 2.2.2 on your Ascend? Ok first, buy (or otherwise acquire) Root explorer. Find your folder, cust/metropcs/app or something like that and change the folder from read only (RO) to read/writable (RW).

Now you're not done here. Some people then close the app and run titanium. See looped? Uno? These are apk files...

Ok, you DON'T need Titanium Pro/Donated version with this. Once you shift a folder to r/w in the apps/metropcs/cust folder to delete a stock app simply long press. A menu will pop up and delete is an option.

if you want @metro google the .apk file, or you can download the update from the metro website and use option 2 to install it...but if you want to go the easy way, use the fastboot method, and btw you cant brick this phone...

Cry Headache

Hi I am a cricket rep and I had a customer trying to use bluetooth voice command on the Ascend. It seems as though the version 2.1 android OS does not support this feature. I continued in my search to help my customer use this feature. I have been reading forum after forum and decided to call Huawei to get a straight answer. Huawei has stated that there is NO date set for the release of this update to 2.2. Could be tomorrow could be never...Exact words from the representative. So with this in mind, does ANYONE know how to get the bluetooth voice command to work on a 2.1 OS???

The Ascend has this cute little "**** you I quit" reset feature. Which is, when the power is off, press and hold, [Power ] [End], [Volume up], keys. Factory hard reset, you have to call metro to reactivate the phone or take it to cricket/Metro and pay a little for them to do it. but you save your phone. Rooted or not you'll get it back brand spanking new and have to redownload all of your aps and whatnot.

Unhappy Can't install CM7 after 2.2 update or remove bloatware

I'm new to siging up here but I have been reading the forums for a while now. When I first got my Ascend from metropcs I had it rooted and themed thanks to you guys here. I recently d/led the official 2.2 from the @appstore on metro and now I'm having trouble having fun with my phone. I've rooted it via Gingerbreak 1.2 and that has worked. I used Root Explorer to read as R/W instead of R/O. With the root explorer I can only remove certain apps but not all. I've used AntTek to freeze the others but it blocks it from doing anything and says the folder is R/O even though I choose R/W. To make this short is there a quick step by step guide to install CM7 AFTER the 2.2 update (sorry all the threads I searched for are from the 2.1 status) And if not thats ok, I wouldn't mind staying with the FroYo 2.2 since it is faster than 2.1 but I just can't modify it or delete the bloatware with root explorer or any other app. It keeps saying permission denined, R/O only and I don't get an option to switch to R/W/

yea the previous version of RE I had let me set the mount from R/O to R/W on main directory, but when I went into any folder after that the option disappeared and I couldn't change the preferences. But with the 2.16 the option is available on any folder I open =P

yea i must say the stock 2.2 runs alot faster than the rooted 2.1 i had with tweaks. still at the 2.2 stock minus the bloat now, havent decided what browser or memory/cpu tweaks i want to install. CM7 seems to have everything I want but I don't know how to install with 2.2 on my phone. I tried to install CWM via ultimate customization thread and after i debug booted (volume down+end call+power off) my phone rebooted and re-installed 2.2 back to stock lol. Think i'll leave it alone till I find a thread that will help. Until then I'll freeze my bloatware and add tweaks as i see fit. Only problem I'm having now is that my market won't download anything. I click an app, it says starting d/l and just hangs there for days. Been having to use 4shared.com but alot of the apps i get from there are hacked/cracked.

Like you said earlier Android 2.1 does not support it. Sorry it's a no go. a handicapped person asked the same thing a couple months ago on here. If they really need it they are going to have to use CM6 or CM7, unless Cricket decides to update. Huawei has already done it for Metro so it shouldn't be a major problem.

Because Cricket is greedy. They want to make you buy another phone... I'm just going to wait a little longer, and if they don't release the update soon, I'll just join the rest of the majority and root it, rom it, and get rid of the bloatware and be happy.

Tru. . Cricket used to be horrible when they first popped up here in da 210 ... over priced cheaply made basic as hell phones. . Literally made you pay for everything from vm to flexbucket ..sometimes would make you pay your bill a few months ahead customer service closed at like 5 pm. Ugghh just lil things so i had avoided cricket till i got the ascend as a gift n unfortunately had to transfer my pocket number to cricket since they had just bought pocket out.. so whn i did tht cricket charged for the phone number porting and first month of service charging over 300 for all tht. . But least they've gottn a LIL better... but it'd be nice to get a break from em as in they neeeda quit their bs lolz

Ok so like i have said. I downloaded it when it was first available, used Gingerbreak to root it. Then had to use Root Explorer to make the directory R/W so i could delete out all the metro crap ware.
Boot Animations still sucked, boot time was still incredibly slow.
Oh and once you do the upgrade CMR 2.0 no longer works on your phone you have to use one of the 3.0 versions...Learned this after flashing it back to 2.1. Somehow if you do the upgrade they have it hard coded to still screw you over.

Overall Metro did what they said they would do. They did issue a 2.2.2 update, and the way they hard coded and hid everything shows why it took so long. Basically they wanted to make it impossible for people like us on the forum to customize the phone to our liking.

I've had no issues using any version of CWMR. Metro did the same crap with the TOE, and I've been saying they would prolly do the same BS with this and they did. But its like me and many others have said, CM6/7 is the best ROMs out for the Ascend hands down.

Yeah. Cricket's not really that bad anymore. Decent coverage, and 3g... and their phones and general service are getting better. It's just the fact that they're holding out on this update. That's really my only gripe about Cricket.

Wow.

Absolutely correct - copyright infringement and postings to paid apps are an illegal activity and AndroidForums.com can have no part in that.

I'll also be needing to know the source of that update being posted at Mediafire.

It that's the work product of another dev, then link to that dev's site, please don't mirror it behind his back.

Independent developers work hard to make Android work for you when your phone's maker and/or carrier won't. They deserve money when they sell apps, they deserve support when they develop things - they deserve the love.

So - support your local devs. It keeps you out of trouble with mods, it makes your hair shinier and teeth whiter, and your dog will love you for it. Seriously - tell your dog you're showing an Android dev some love and he'll tend to wag his tail, 9 times out of 10.

Mad Cannot download Shopkick or TV guide app after upgrade and my phone is rooted

I upgraded my Huawei Ascend which was rooted. Then I couldnt root it again but was finally able to figure it out. SO my phone is rooted.

Rooted w/ Gingerbreak
then root explorer

The problem I am having now is that I cannot find on the market the following apps:
-Shopkick
-TV guide

I then tried to do it thru the market website but it says its not comparable. I also try to find it around other website where to download them from and it wouldnt work. But I had these on my phone before the update.

If someone can help me figure out how I could get these apps back on my phone it would be great!

Also, when I tried to join my contacts from FB to my phonebook, I would click on the FB contact, edit, and there was no "Join" option. So, if someone help figure out how to join my contacts.

Regards,

If you can't get it to install from Fastboot, your other alternative is to download ROM Manager from the market, which will allow you to install CWM 3.0.0.5. Since your Market is not working, you can try going to market.android.com and logging in with your gmail credentials, lookup ROM Manager, and click Install to see if it will push to your phone. If that doesn't work, here are a couple of other possible solutions:

Fix for Market Apps Hanging on Downloading or Inst - techno zone

Fix Android Market From Hanging During Downloads & Installation

I could swear that I once posted another link with a long explanation of how to fix this issue, but I cannot find it for the life of me.

Let me say that my recent posts look like they're from a lunatic. I want to apologize to everyone here on this thread and on the site in general. I got busted doing something I shouldn't have done and I went into defensive mode. Again I'm sorry and it won't happen again.

I'd say your good.

Everybody makes mistakes from time to time. Fact is you realize your mistake and even apologized for it. We're not here to kick people out...we're just trying to keep this place running as smoothly as possible (and out of court lol). My only advice would be to keep your cool. Having a post deleted doesn't mean you're being ganged up on or that you're not welcome here. EarlyMon and nuttmeg were just doing their jobs.

I found that Root Explorer was the only thing that worked. If you google it, you may come up to some sites that could have a paid version or cracked that you can download.

While i highly recommend that people do pay for their software if they like it, sometimes cracked apps are what we have to work with from time to time.

What exactly were you doing at the time when it froze?

I've deleted your other thread, as I assume this is root related and we try to avoid having duplicate threads.

reverting back to stock, ok power down the phone and download and extract this to your desktop MetroStockRecovery-SCRIPTS.zip after you done that press and hold vol down, end key and tap power, your phone should be on the white huawei screen and it should stay there, now open the folder that you extracted and run both of these file, first run fastboot-windows you will see a black box come and leave quick, next run metroPCSStock-windows.bat than another black box will pop up and it will do its thing, once it finishes the phone will automatic reboot itself.

Cry Anyone Having App issues? (MetroPCS)

I just upgraded to Froyo 2.2 and everything is working fine...unfortunately, I had to re-download all my apps, problem is that Google is saying that the app(s) is/are now incompatible with my device when they worked before on Eclair 2.1. What gives?

Rooting is giving me hell as well, but I will get it to work, I usually do.
