There tech support will be like most other companys, one person will tell you one thing and another person will tell you something totally different, so when I see it I will believe it, until then I'm just going to keep loving my Ascend

I think getting the update will not happen anytime soon, don't hold your breath. I went to the huawei website, registered, browsed for a while, then decided to reply. The moment I did this, I became a guest again. They're like chrysler, they don't support the products they make. I'm beginning to not like the company, they are only in it for profit. Customer concerns, and support, seem to be foreign to them. Don't get me wrong, I like my phone. The public, and the carriers should pressure huawei, to do the right thing, otherwise, they should stop making phones. Huawei hurts their reputation, before they can have one. I only deal with reliable products, that have support, I may never buy huawei's products again, no matter how good they may be. I don't deal with companies that shaft you.

Relax, this phone has only been out for 3 months and it's a $100 phone. There are people with Samsung phones that have been out way longer than this that are just now getting it.

That phone is said to be receiving a 2.2 update this week if they didn't already receive it.

Besides, They did at least release a kernel so people can modify the phone (Make new roms). It's too early to tell where this is going. I also agree that it is indeed one of the cheapest phones made with android on it. Just the fact that we will get an update is something we should appreciate! ^^. Besides, I love this phone. Even if I don't get that 2.2 update...

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.
yeah thats exactly where i was headed lol i was at some hope thinking maybe they can mod the zio update to run the asecnd lol.. wishfull thinking lol

Never say never - but I wouldn't expect that to work, as each maker does just that one little thing in hardware that can require the software to match exactly.

If this can be done - wait until a number of developers agree that it can and does work. Typically what happens when this is attempted is that the phone turns into a brick.

I think that a lot of people are busy working on roms (2.2 unofficial, Icarus, etc) for this phone. Besides having issues with MMS, I've heard a lot of good things about them. With or without an official update, We'll all have somewhere to go with this phone. ^.^

I am not too sure either, but it is the date of that thread that had me wondering if it is the 2.1 update.

I have the ascend with metro pcs. I was talking to a customer service representative and asked them about the whole upgrade thing, and the lady has no idea what I was talking about. She said that metro has nothing to do with things like that and that if there is an upgrade that I would have to talk to the manufacturer. Someone tell me she just had no clue. Lol

Sorry about that post, but I like to build comps, and I normally read up on things before I buy my components, including support for the products. I just had enough that night about reading this, and that, about the update, I will just wait for march 16.

okay ill keep reporting here.this community seems to be more reliable than customer service anyway.lol
I had been getting my info from here for a while, lurking, before making this account, so I kinda knew you guys before you responded to me. Lol kinda creepy.

I know it's highly unlikeely, but if, god forbid, metro decides to not help with an upgrade, would there be a way to use crickets? I'm a computer geek but I literally know diddle about phones. This is kinda my first one. Thank god for budget smart phones.

Hi Reposiric! Welcome to our happy little forum!

Don't worry...if an upgrade comes out (and we are most definitely expecting it) there will be all kinds of support here, regardless of who the carrier is.

LOL@Thank god for budget smart phones! I've never actually looked at the Ascend that way but I guess you have a point! hahaha

Thanks. I'm glad I found this forum.

I really can't wait. I use my phone pretty much only for gaming. there are some serious real gamer gaming opportunities, and i need to move stuff to SD so bad. Totally full within days of getting it.

Lol yeah it sort of is. ill spare my life story, but I am super poor, and was so excited to see how cheap this thing was. Lol

other than sd move, does anyone know the other specs coming along with it?

Lol yeah it sort of is. ill spare my life story, but I am super poor, and was so excited to see how cheap this thing was. Lol

other than sd move, does anyone know the other specs coming along with it?
I'm not holding my breath on an official 2.2 release from Huawei, as people have been saying Q1 of 2011 since late 2010. Your other option, if you need Apps2SD, is to install the Icarus MOD. I've downloaded over 100 apps at this point, still have somewhere between 400-500MB left on the 1GB Apps2SD partition I created on my SD card, and still over 100MB left on internal memory.

If so let me know how that's going. I'm seriously interested in it now that they fixed the few issues that had me concerned. Do you know of anyone who has a video of the newest icarus rom in action?

P.S I know my font keeps changing. Sometimes I write from my phone, Sometimes I'm on a computer. ^^.

Well thats all I really need. Can't modding the phone hurt it in some cases? I can't afford to brick it.

Is there any way to post this thread on Facebook? I am constantly on Cricket's Fb page and I am tired of all these no-nothing stupid people bashing the Ascend and saying there is no update planned ever!! I have had my Ascend for 3 months and absolutely love it. I am a newbie to smartphones, but am grateful that this phone works and has 2.1 at least. Thank you to Cricket and to Huawei for this phone for us newcomers.

There is still no offical word as to when the 2.2 will be coming out. Rumours are flying but nothing is confirmed.

Jazz, or anyone really, would it be prudent to wait for the upgrade before rooting my phone, or does it not matter?

Also, considering I want to root my phone, and I dont know jack about phones, is there a thread that has all I need to know explained? I read your rooting step by step page and it says if I dont know what something is, to stop. i would like to be android literate. Thanks.

Hello Repo. Only you can answer this question. It's kinda like riding a bicycle. You have to be willing to fall down once or twice in the process. The guide is there for you if you want it. Those of us who have modded our phones did so because we were willing to take the risk. There are some things you simply can't learn other than by experience. Hope this kind answers your question. We're here to help you should you need us.

OOPS!!!! TILT!
Firlst of all let me say that Titanium Backup could never be thought of as 'nothin'. It's one of the best app investments you could ever buy and if you are rooted it is highly recommended! Secondly, here in the Ascend Forum we absolutely condemn the practice of buying or promoting pirated and illegal apps in any way, shape or form. To go a step further, I would suggest that if you are not willing to purchase the pro version of TiBu that it would be best to just not even root. Most probs occur when someone doesn't have the full paid for version.

I agree, Early, but due to the fact that I have users PM me constantly who have probs trying to restore apps they shouldn't have uninstalled I think it would be best for them to buy the app straight out unless they thoroughly understand UBrocked's Guide to Titanium Backup. And most simply can't understand it for some reason. LOL Six bucks is a small price to pay for such a dramatic improvement in one's phone. However, given that we have students, etc., here that may not have the means to purchase pro versions, we are more than willing to help them with the free version and I am sure that is one of the reasons the developer has this version out there. *ramble* *ramble* *grumble*. I am still on my first cup of coffee. LOL

Do the root methods here include recovery and the ability to do nandroid backups?

Morning Early!!!

We recommend that everyone does a nandroid backup and has some understanding of what rooting means and feels technologically savvy enough to follow the directions, which are really quite simple. The thread was created before we had the CWM Recovery for Cricket and MetroPCS so it isn't in that thread but we do have the separate threads in 'All Things Root' that we refer users to when they need it. It's difficult to put every single thing in one thread without cluttering it up so much it's hard to understand. But you do make a good point. I'll see if I can somehow include the links in there. I will say this...our success ratio for those following the step by step guide is way up there. We haven't had a bricked phone yet.

With nandroid backups done before anyone changes or delete apps, there's no way to lose anything and not recover it - and it's free.

I'll put it in the Step by Step Guide to Rooting just as soon as I get back from my doctor's appt which I need to head out for now. Thanks so much for your diligence and helpful suggestions and interest in us Ascend users! We need a guardian angel like you!

1. It's virtually impossible to brick the phone by rooting. As I've seen it stated, it's what you do AFTER rooting that can brick your phone. With the Ascend, rooting is as simple as downloading z4root, running it, and clicking Root, then rebooting. The same applies for unrooting.

2. If Huawei ever releases an official 2.2 upgrade, your phone allegedly will need to be stock before installing it, ie: no uninstalled system apps, unroot. If you use Titanium Backup or other apps to uninstall or freeze apps, you'll need to undo those actions. Some say installing 2.2 without unrooting will remove root and kill your ability to reroot, although I have no personal experience with this. Your other choice is to simply restore your phone to stock using the MetroPCS stock ROM.

3. Icarus 1.1 is basically a bugfix release if I understand it correctly, things like mms.apk and other small issues being corrected.

4. There is at least one free app freezer I've heard of on the market, but the name eludes me at present.

So, I will probably just wait until the 2.2 comes out before rooting, and use this time to study how rooting works and stuff. I want my phone to be phenomenal.

Quick question, once the phone has been upgraded, is there any reason to believe the rooting process already used for Ascend would need change? A new OS wouldn't change anything along those lines hopefully.

Yeah Blast! You're so right! Most users get into trouble after rooting because they don't pay attention to the list of what it safe and not safe to remove. LOL You know the saying...you can lead a horse to water but you can't make that SOB float on his back! hahaha (ohhh? it doesn't go like that?) LOL

You can root your phone now and download CWM Recovery and back your entire ROM onto your computer. Then you will have it for 2.2, when it comes out. But the facts are this: The Ascend will never be 'phenomenal' unless it is modded! 2.2 or no 2.2.

I was able to use the same z4root on my Optimus (Which has 2.2 already, Not 2.2.1 though). I'd suggest to always check these threads to make sure. You never know what Huawei might include in their update. You've always got to do your research. I thought the same way you did too for like..a week. Then I rooted. Now I'm running Icarus 1.1. LOL. Oh and my phone is phenomenal. Its speed is comparable to my Optimus now and all my apps/games/et open up like they are flying ninjas compared with how it was stock!

Good for you Repo!!! Good idea to be prepared before you begin! Were you a Boy Scout perchance? LOL

I know what you mean about being broke. I just had to buy all my apps again after I signed into my google account with the wrong Gmail address and they wouldn't let me change it. GRRRR! Meanies! I could have unflashed ICARUS and then flashed it back but.....I didn't! Oh well....

Flashing and unflashing this phone rather than buy apps again. I'm so broke I can't even afford to pay attention. That's why you had to walk me through the Icarus install last night. LOL
