    Hmmmm....really, okay how do I remove it? just curious, if I don't need it then what was the point in ever partitioning the SD card to move apps. Im not really sure how CM6 Accomplishes this without a partition is what I'm saying

    The partition was needed for icarus because it moved the apps differently then the froyo version does. There is a guide around here ,or on prepaidandroids, some where on how to remove the partition.

    okay...right on this whole time I've been moving apps, the partition has probably just been dead space huh?

    I have a question about a couple of apps that constantly show up in the running applications for no apparent reason. Namely Firmware Update and GTalkService. Is it right that Firmware Update starts itself and runs constantly when there is no Update happening? Is it just listening and needs to be ready for a update whenever that may be?

    GTalkService does basically the same thing even though I never use the Talk App. Whats up with that? Thanks,

    Ok, so I have the CM7 rom..

    And I wanted, to display the caller id in my recent calls list, instead of just the phone number?

    Any insight is greatly appreciated..

    Allright, my friend, as far as I know, these are system apps, some will show as running and some may not. You can chose to close these particular ones if you like, but they'll most likely keep running in the background anyhow. As many will tell you, I wouldn't go with any Task killing apps.....Just a suggestion if you don't mind changing launchers, GOlauncher EX has a built in task manager that shows you everything that's running and allows you to close it from within your app drawer. Otherwise someone else may have a better selection for an app you can use.

    What does root mean? What is flash?

    My phone is stock. Is that a bad thing?

    You can root your phone with z4root, it's an easy process. Takes about 7 minutes. But it can void your warranty, but since the phone is so cheap, if it breaks i'll just buy a new one.
    With that said, back to what root is. If you have a rooted phone you can do more things with it than you can with stock. And you can make it x999,999 times faster with different types of apps.
    Stock isn't bad, but if you choose to root it your doing yourself a favor.

    The Huawei Ascend is an exotic flowering plant grown exclusively in China. It is typically ingested by smoking. It can have various effects depending on the user: euphoria:D, anger:mad:, confusion:confused:, and the feeling of moving in slow motion due to lag are just a few of the symptoms of Huawei intoxication. A gateway drug that can lead to harder things like ROM addiction and Android withdrawal. :rolleyes:

    This question is actually an A/F-PHANDROID question,however,I would like to take this opportunity to let someone point out the obvious to me & have a good laugh @ my expense.It's the least I could do for all the help I've received from some the nicest & coolest people I'll ever come across. it is:

    When I attempt to alter my profile on my USER CP by updating the devices/apps of note used,when I select the edit button,enter the changes,&hit 'save',nothing happens,& my profile information stays the same.

    I had no problems changing my avatar,but,cannot change the data I just described.
    Someone PLEASE point out the obvious & tell me what I'm doing wrong.THANK YOU!

    I think I figured out the problem. It appears there is a limit (# of characters) that can be entered & cannot add more info.Thanks for the help,NUTTMEG & EXTREEMGREEN!

    Okayy, so I installed icarus and It runs great but somehow I messed up the flash and I can't sign into gmail (meaning no market, calender) is there something I can do to fix this in cwm? Or do I need to reflash? And if I need to reflash do I start back from the very beggining?
    And can I just flash to icarus and start from fresh downloading apps, or is titu mandatory?
    Oh and I downloaded titu from 4shared, so I had to put my sd card back in before I could restore my apps..
    Sorry for the compete unawareness :)

    Today, I got the Ascend account running through Cricket. I am waiting for the Port team to port my old T Mobile phone number to my new Ascend.

    After that I will have to reboot the phone. While I wait, I want to find out any advice on wifi. This is a stock phone, it has zero 3rd party downloads. Which wifi do I use?

    The phone has a list to choose from:

    Thanks for any advice!:D
