But after visiting the site it gives me an:

There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

Default MetroPCS.com - 500 Internal Server Error

Yeah, I jut received a text message from metro saying the update was available.

I went to the site, and I'm getting a 500 internal server error.

I wish I had access to the server so I could fix it, being a support technician for a web hosting company... too bad we dont host metropcs.com... haha

EDIT: the main site is back up, but the upgrade page (http://www.metropcs.com/android2-2upgrade) is still throwing a 500 error.

EDIT2: looks like the application pool for metropcs.com needs to be recycled now... stupid rackspace needs to get their $h!+ together. Go Server Intellect!

Went right to the URL and it shows a download page, but it won't allow us to download "this file type", so I have gone to it on my PC and to any metropcs site, I get an internal error...if someone downloads it, would you put up a link for me to download from, please?

big downgrade from cm7 to 2.2, but everyone has their own prefs...but 2.2 is clock at 600mhz unless you have cm6 which is 2.2 but clock at 710, same as cm7 is clock at 710mhz also.

is that the only difference? can't you get other programs that overclock the cpu? Let me ask this, in CWM can i do a complete backup of how my system is now, and if i don't like it, come back to it as I never left it?

Default Official Ascend 2.2 upgrad is here for MetroPCS

I just received a text from MetroPCS and the official upgrade to Android 2.2 is available at Huawei Ascend Android 2.2 Upgrade.

This what we have all been waiting for.

Can the moderators give support for us rooted users?

Thanks,

Gary

So is there any way to get this upgrade, root it, and then flash the CM6 kernel? Because I am LOVING 710mhz. Also, can someone give me some opinions on whether this is better than CM6 or no?

Metro's 2.2.2 sucks in comparison to CM6, and CM7 blow them both out of the water.

I upgraded it a little over a week ago, and regreted it ever since. So if you have CM6 or CM7 stay with it, cause the metro stuff sucks.

Z4 will not work with 2.2.2 You have to use Gingerbreak V1.1 or up, and it works awesome. If you go to the all things root part of this forum you will see a few posts on what you will need to root the 2.2.2 and what you will need to get rid of the Metro bloatware.

no you cant use the kernel thats in cm6, it was compile in that build, metro build have to be tested with a kernel to see if it works.

Jason,

I'm moving your thread to the root sub-forum where you'll hopefully get more views and responses.

to be on the safe side, revert back to stock, and about the messages just send them to your gmail is the best route to go.

reverting back to stock will put your phone to like it was out of box, and yes send them 1 by 1 to gmail...

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 plug your phone to the computer via usb cable, 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.

Default 2.1 to 2.1 Upgrade success

I completed the upgrade took less than 10 mins. I then was able to use gingerbreak to root device. (Root level access is working). Installed Titanium Backup Pro & PRO KEY. Performed backup & Uninstalled bloatware. All is working good so far!

Did anyone download from the site before it went "TU"? I went nuts finding the metro app store, but when you go to install it your informed that you need wifi running to install... Win7 is a pain, I set up a adhock, my phone won't recognize it... I'm begging someone to post a link... Puhhhhleeeeeeze?

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 plug your phone to the computer via usb cable, 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.
I've downloaded the file twice, and both times i got that the file is either damaged or in a wrong format...Is there any other one?
