Okay, I did this, but now it freezes at the Android screen. I also can't really turn it off becuase it turns right back on when i do. And I did do a backup before I started, btw.

Default Upgraded to 2.2, bit can't download google music app

I have a Huawei M-860 through Metro PCS which I just upgraded to 2.2.2 I got a google music invite (cool) but when I try to download the app through the Android Market, I am getting a message saying my phone is not compatible. I contacted the Music Beta Team is the answer I recieved was that the app needs 2.2 and above with OpenGL2.0. I am really a novice when it comes to this. Any idea what the OpenGL2.0 is and how/if I can get this on my phone? Thanks in advance

OpenGL helps process the graphics. Might just to find it from another source and sideload it.

sorry only for metro but it sucks, but if you want 2.2 go with cm6, it better and faster than stock will ever be or an official update.

I should've just kept the android 2.1 OS on my Ascend, I really don't know what the big difference is, plus after I updated it, the camera settings changed on it and now it takes crappy photos! Has anyone has this problem before or am I the only complaining? I want to remove the Android 2.2.2 so can someone please just walk me through it?? I would appreciate it! Thanks!

the camera will suck no matter what you put on it, but if you want to go back to 2.1 than follow this 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 Help Please >.<

I have an Huawei Ascend from Metro-Pcs. When I got the phone the first thing that I did was update to 2.2 and root it. The phone has worked...well as best as can be expected for a cheap phone. However for the past two weeks I have been having problems with the phone. It constantly says that the launcher has stopped working would i like to -Force Close or -Wait. The only way that I can get the phone to work again is by restarting the phone, and then it only works for short periods before it starts doing it again. I have no idea what is going on with the phone and I cant take it to Metro because its rooted and they wont help me. Can anyone offer some suggestions that may help me?

No one has any advise?

Angry Huawei Upgrade 2.2 Need Info

Probably one of two things :

1) Requires 2.3(GINGERBREAD) or,

2) The hardware on the ASCEND will not support certain apps, even when running the required O/S.
One particular app that comes to mind is ADOBE FLASH. This phone will not run it.

Read through the sticky threads in the All Things Root subforum here. It's a real good idea to really check them out, it will give you a much better idea of what you can do, and save yourself a lot of time and frustration in the end.

Ok, now I have gone through alot of these pages looking for my question (asked by someone else) Now, I have a custom boot animation and sound file. Now, with the 2.2.2.2.2.2..........Metro update I know it will be deleted. No worries I have the file saved on my computer. I want to know, what new root program do I need to root the phone when I update it and has the location changed for the boot animation file? I dont want to brick my phone or my wifes (she will castrate me quicker than not). Now again, Name of program for rooting, and file location where hence I do update my phone.

Gingerbreak is the new Z4Root (not really, but kinda.)
And don't worry about bricking your phone, won't happen. Worry that you don't do your backups before fiddling around. Think of your unborn children.

Talking Can't download photos after upgrade to 2.2

After upgrading I can no longer use my usb to down load photos to desktop. I remember there was a resident app on the card that handled that and after the upgrade its gone.

Any help would be appreciated.

Its not the usb connection that is the problem. The problem is there is no files visible when the usb cable is connected, even though I in fact have a gallery of photos that I can email.

I can read droid files, but there is no directory for pics. I suppose if I removed the card and plugged directly to my pc it would work.

open file manager in app drawer, scroll down to a folder name DCIM tap it and tap camera for the pics that you take with camera, now if your using a app like lets say 10,000 backgrounds, the app will make its own folder and store whatever pic's you downloaded in that folder.

Well, I did what you most recently said, then connected via usb. This time though all folders showed up when I was connected via usb. Last nite i did the same thing with no luck. Maybe I just needed to go to the file manager the first time to shake things up.

Thanks a million.,

Default Would someone be willing to help me root/ upgrade my 2.1 to 2.2?

I want my phone to run faster and I want to be able to use it as a mobile hotspot. I tried to do it using videos from youtube and through the forum here but I just can't seem to succeed. I already backed up my phone. I've also already downloaded:

z4root (and superuser)
ROM manager
and barnacle.

Thanks

I used GingerBreak v1.2 but Z4root is basically the same thing. Open it up and hit "Root phone" select permanent or temporary root (I went with permanent ) and let it do its thing. And your phone will reboot once rooted.


I suggest going with 2.3 PlayfulGod's CM 7.2 07282011 is a great build and Im running Bobz's CM7.1RC1-Ascend-BobZ-07082011. Both of them build great ROMs

This is how I do it:
Flash the recovery in ROM manager
Download the ROM you want with the Gapps from PrepaidAndroid.com to your computer
Transfer the ROM, Gapps to your phone
Go into ROM Manager and select "Reboot into recovery"
It will reboot and take you into clockwork recovery
Then choose "Wipe data/factory reset" and click yes
hit back and go one down to "Wipe cache partition" select yes
hit back again and go down to "Advanced" and select "Wipe Dalvik" and select yes
Hit back again and go to "Mounts and storage"
Select "Format boot" yes and click back
"Format system" yes, back
"Format data" yes, back
"Format cache" yes, back
Hit back again to go back to the main menu
Select "Install zip from sd" and flash the ROM
Once thats done Flash the Gapps
Hit back to go to the main menu and select "Advance" and go down to "Fix Permissions"
Then back to the main and "select reboot phone"

And bam youre done.


Oh also I like Wireless Tether for Root Users better then Barnacle

You do know when you partition your SD it wipes everything on your SD and you have to reload the zip files and gapps and reflash. So you have nothing on your SD for it to reboot too.

Sounds like you're gonna need to re-flash CWM RECOVERY,since you can't get it to appear using the three button method.
Just make sure that you are pressing the buttons in the proper sequence & holding them long enough to verify that CWM is no longer on your phone.

1) Press volume up
2) Press call button
3) Press power button

Full instructions for installing CWM RECOVERY are listed in the ULTIMATE ASCEND CUSTOMIZATION GUIDE.The guide lists 2.5.1.8,but,the steps are the same,regardless of which recovery you use.
Then,use your PC to install a ROM & the associated GAPPS per the same Guide listed above.
Let us know how you're progressing.

I rooted via Z4 and got it to work just fine. You may give Gingerbreak a shot though.

Is it safe to flash a ROM since you upgraded to the 2.2 upgrade? Yes you can. I had the 2.2 update and flashed to PlayfulGod's CM 7.2 07282011 and then switched to BobZ's CM 7.1 07082011. Main reason I switched was I can overclock Bobz's build to 729mhz and PG's only over clocks to 710Mhz. Both are great builds.

3G good luck after I read your comment this morning I went and checked just how fast the 3g is with metro lets just say a dial up connection to the interweb is faster I can also say a old 14.4k modem is faster than metro's 3g network which clocked in at a even 14kbps lighting speeds aye, the good news is that 14k is up from the 10kbps I had a month ago.

Search is your friend here.

I would search the Ascend forums for "change theme" or something of the like. I prefer to check "Show Posts" before hitting the search button to narrow my results. I know this question has been asked several times before, but I've never fiddled with it myself.

For a new keyboard, search the market, there are several to choose from. (I'm a SwiftKey X fan myself, but I'm probably in the minority there.)

I couldnt understand why. However I had a dload update packagein my sd card and im asuming that it reloaded that. So now its back to square1. I wanna flash to whatever is better then 2.1 lol. Anythoughts to what is gonna give me the best performance? 1 of my main concerns is after a year of doing all types of stuff on this phone I have so much stuff in my memory card and I would like to free up the memory but dont kno if theres certain things I will need or can get rid of. Also wil the cm6-cm7 allow you to save to sd? Thanx. if you wanna help me deck out my cell, hit me through my inbox.

cm6 or cm7, but if you load cm7 make sure your sdcard is partition in recovery and make sure you have a class 4 or higher for faster performance cause your dalvik will also be move to the sd card, but you can always move it back to the phone threw TE.
