Default [Official Discussion] Huawei Ascend 2.1 - 2.2 Firmware Upgrade (Info updated as received!)

So far from what I can tell, it is not possible to do it with this phone. It appears that the ROM is blocked from updates by not being able to receive OTA updates.

Confused 2.1-->2.2 for Huawei Ascend M860?

Does anyone know or maybe has heard when the update will release?

i heard Q1 of 2011(Jan-Mar) but was wondering if a narrower time frame may exist?

Also, is this the update that will allow this particular droid to be able to store apps on sd card?

There isn't a more specific time frame than that, sorry. You are right about the apps to SD card. It will also speed up the phone. Also, one of the greatest features of 2.2 is flash player. But unfortunately this will likely not be included in the Ascends update due to insufficient horse power. I know it sucks. U can like crickets Facebook page to receive more info as it's obtained.

Default [Official Discussion] Huawei Ascend 2.1 - 2.2 Firmware Upgrade (Info updated as received!)

This is the official Huawei Ascend 2.2 upgrade Android Forum thread.

The first post here will be updated continuously as new and 'confirmed' information is released regarding the 2.2 firmware upgrade that Ascend users are anticipating, both with Cricket and MetroPCS.


All posts on this thread following this one will be considered: discussion and speculation.

Update: Sunday, Feb 20, 2011 -


Good news! I spoke with Cricket Technical Support this morning about another matter to do with my phone. The technical support person told me that the Ascend WILL be getting a 'Firmware Upgrade' soon. He said we would all be notified via text message when it is available and the details.

While we have not seen anything official from MetroPCS, we can only assume at this time that upgrades for Metro Ascend users will recieve the upgrade in the same manner. Just as soon as we have official information from MetroPCS we will be posting it here in this first post.


Regarding News,Tips and Rumors:

If you have information regarding the 2.2 upgrade you want to share, please post it here on this thread instead of creating a new thread. All new threads pertaining to the 2.2 Froyo upgrade for the Ascend, whether it is for Cricket or MetroPCS will either be merged into this one of locked. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated!

All rumors or news will be checked out first and updates will be posted here on this first post as they are deemed to be of importance to the Ascend Forum. Your discussion and speculation is highly welcome, however!


To begin the discussion anew:

So the good news is that at least we know now that 2.2 is going to be forthcoming. Remember that the Ascend was only officially released in Nov 2010 for Cricket and December 2010 for MetroPCS. So it isn't like it has been out there forever without any upgrade.

An example of upgrades: The Kyocera Zio (Cricket Smartphone) was launched by Cricket in Sept 2010. It has just now been officially announced by Cricket that it will be updating to 2.2. So it is natural to assume it might take as long as six months for the Ascend to receive an upgrade as well. Fortunately for the users, the Ascend was released with 2.1 instead of the 1.6 that the Zio had.


Note:

There are new threads popping up encouraging you to install UNOFFICIAL updates! It is recommended that you wait for the OFFICIAL upgrade as the others still have bugs and are not sanctioned by the Ascend Community.

It is unwise to attempt to upgrade following these instructions at this time. Please wait until we have received the official release.


We have reports from those who have tried that they are now unable to use their phones.


It is good news, however, that we received this news as that means we are getting just this much closer to having our 2.2 upgrade.


To again answer your questions before you ask:

1. No one knows when we will get the official upgrade at this time.

2. We have been advised now that we will be notified via text message when the upgrade is released.

3. We will post here (in this first post) the minute we receive or have confirmed the official release.

4. All users: We will have directions to help and assist you with any manual upgrades.


3. Rooted users: When you see the official upgrade, wait for further instructions here on how to proceed.


Stay tuned.

My phone fell victim to that update patch:-( if any one knows a way to undo it pleaselwt me know.

P.s. reflashing to 2.1 or restoring a nand back up doesn't fix it because you lose your NV items.

Pizz4 ...Sorry you had that problem. Out of curiosity, did you unroot before you attempted the Chinese upgrade? And what other 'preparation steps' did you take before you began?

Yeah I was not rooted. As precautions I made a nand back up and had the stock 2.1 ROM for cricket. After the Chinese data patch zip in stall all of them failed me. I think If take it to a cricket store they might be able to reactavite it, but I'm not sure.

Can you please edit your post to tell users we are currently working on a port Codenamed: Beanbag to release 2.2 on. You may install the Beta Via Clockwork and your Phone And Text will work, However Data and Wifi are currently still in the works, we have 3 Devs working on the currently release, stay tuned to MyAscend.org for more info!

Hi Silver! Thanks for the update. I'm sure that those who read this thread will see your post. For now, we are advising everyone here (due to the many problems they have encountered) to wait for the offical update (which will be announced by Huawei or Cricket or Metro).

When you get it all fine tuned send me a PM please.

I have serious doubts cricket will ever provide an update for this phone. They will just try to sell us the new one when it comes out. Call me a cynic, but...

There will be no 2013. The Mayans ran out of supplies for making their calendar and figured "Meh, it'll be centuries or millennia until then." Thanks to their shortsightedness, we are all doomed! CURSE YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!

The update is technically outside of Cricket and Metro's hands Huawei is doing it. (Which is why they upgrade before the Kyocera droid, cause it's the brand not the carrier doing the upgrade) As for self-righting this, there is no way...technically. 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.

More on that here.

Joser, your post is simply not accurate! To set the record straight, Cricket DOES have a facebook page and this is what they have posted in answer to a question about the Ascend 2.2 upgrade:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cricket Facebook Page



Cricket Wireless Hi Greg - We currently have a 2.2 update for Zio coming soon. Updates to devices such as Ascend from Huawei are at the discretion of the device manufacturer where one will be available and not the carrier. We'll keep you posted on any further developments.

~~~~~~~~~~~

This was posted 4 hours ago from the time and date of this post. So Ascend users...don't ditch your phones just yet.

He showed me the email from Metro indicating the news were Metro users will be getting the upgrade information via their goggle account. He also made a comment that all Ascends for sale after that Monday will be available with Froyo 2.2!!!!!!!!
This is great news and what everyone has been expecting as we have always been told an upgrade for the Ascend was forthcoming.

I have a call in to Ning Chang with Huawei and am waiting to hear back from him now.
