    Okay, Stupid question from me. I wonder can you use these same steps in order to get back to the clockwork 3xxx? I have the 2xx already because of me having Icarus 1.1. I'm wondering if you know how I should proceed with going to a newer version? Would it be easier for me to just revert to my back up of the stock rooted before I'd even flashed?

    Asking because I'm preparing for cm7, I think.

    That is covered in a thread here somewhere. It's either a clockwork thread or the Icarus one. Sorry I don't have the time right now to look it up and post the link.

    Rain, yes you would use the same steps we did for icarus but you would have to use the 3.xxx zip file.

    I'm in the process of flashing a Cricket phone for my cousin. I'm kind of stuck right now!!!!
    I have rooted his Huawei Ascend with Z4root apk and I'm currently trying to flash clockwork mod recovery v.2.5.1.8 as I had already downloaded recovery v.3.0.xx. It doesn't matter what I do I can't gwt 2.5.1.8! I have tried clearing the cache and deleting 3.0.x.x. and everytime I install the 2.5.x.x version it always defaults back to 3.0.x.x!!!!! Does anyone have an idea as to how to bypass this, i.e unrooting or something?!!!!!! PLEASE HELP! I'm SO close to flashing Icarus on it. If I had known from the start that clockwork mod 2.5.1.8 was the only one I could use I would have been finished by now! :eek:(

    Thanx for ALL the help I have had in doing all this on my own! Youguys ROCK!!!!!

    I am confused about whether the ROM Manager's CWM works on the Ascend or if we need the 2.5xx CWM.

    This is what I have done in an attempt to flash froyo 2.2...

    I rooted my Cricket Ascend with z4root. I downloaded ROM Manager and Flashed CWM Recovery giving it superuser permissions.I then fixed permissions.

    My next challenge is to backup. So, I went into Rom Manager and tapped Reboot into Recovery...My phone stays on the Huawei screen and does not go into recovery mode... (if I did it right it should be "green"?)

    So if I take my battery out it'll reboot fine, but not into recovery.

    Any suggestions?

    I see people hitting the VOL UP and Exit button (rightmost soft button) and I see people hitting the VOL DOWN and Call (leftmost soft button) what is the difference.

    I did try the VOL UP and Exit buttong and got a message saying:
    Unpacking (Empty status bar) Update failed...

    I was not at a wifi spot... Is this the combination to take me into recovery?

    Thanks

    When you input everything into the open terminal emulator does it do anything noticable so I know if that step worked aftet inputing last line and hitting enter

    Since you are flashing (you did a back up of the apps right) uninstall any apps that were downloaded. You will have to re-install anyway.

    Its not end call but rather call. End call volume down is for fast boot.

    It says
    Android system recovery <2e>
    Android system recovery utility

    Reboot system now
    Apply sdcard :update.zip
    Wipe data/factory reset
    Wipe cache partition

    Does that mean I have some other recovery on phone that I need to delete off first?

    Have you ever been able to get to it, because the first few times i tried did not work and i had to run the file again. make sure the black box comes up, your doing it on the comp right? It's the easiest way to do it.
