    i read ppl saying there is , there isnt ,
    and cricket alrdy had it ?
    so confusing :confused:
    im starting to think ,
    is Huawei really doing the 2.2 update ?
    or its just a Hoax ?
    would it make more sense
    they company , selling another phone with 2.2
    making more money
    then giving out free update ?
    is anyone here really running 2.2 ?

    First of all...that blog that came out about the 2.2.1 update was real but the guy stole the file from us and reposted it..I was the first person to ever have 2.2.1 on my ascend and have data wifi and txt to work..but MMS was failing..then a person named Dark found another version of the same software I had that wasn't in Chinese by default so he released it thats when the dude jacked the file and reposted it as his .. The 2.2.1 update is really made for the phone u8500 not our m860 but works fine on the phone with a few bugs that are trying to be worked on by me and darklg at this time and a few others..
    if you go to myascend.org and read under dev section you will see our post that are original that we have found this first..also when I spoke to huawie my self they said march 16th they will release an 2.2 update..hope this explain some stuff...thanks

    The 'new' member that posted that was a previously banned member trying to return under a new name. Did you get your phone working again?

    Hey, the answer is no!

    This is an unofficial version!!!!
    BUT...

    I have it currently on my huawei ascend m860 and don't have any problems.
    everything works, phone, text, internet, wifi, i mean you name it.

    All I have to say is. Go ahead and do it. If you don't like it you can always restore your phone to the way it was before by doing a nandroid backup.

    Then it is easy to restore!!!

    Give it a try!

    I think I'll be smart and just wait for an official update, if one is released, rather than installing a possibly wonky update and winding up with a crippled phone. Why are people so impatient about this? If the phone doesn't run the way you wanted, why did you buy it in the first place?

    The rom does feel crippled after icarus1.1

    The speed isnt worth the loss of a2sd

    Tokenpoke, let me ask you this, I rooted my phone and installed Rom Manager and flashed to 3.0.0.5 CWM. I tried the jinky 2.2 and it only partly ran, couldn't get APN to come up without force closure.

    If I have CWM 3.0.0.5 can I still go to Icarus or do I have to change my CWM?

    Some people have used 3.0 without problems and some people had problems with it. But 2.5 works and there is a link to it on the 2nd or 3rd post in the Icarus thread.

    Use 2.5 you can flas froyo with it too.

    Froyo worked fine for me until uim error because of metamorph. I flashed with 2.5 back and forth from froyo to icarus eight total flashes yesterday. No big snags.

    LOL @ the stone-casting n00b who posted links to his own blog and claimed to have the OFFICIAL 2.2 for the Ascend. Knuckles was associated with 2.2.1 well before you thought of trying to steal credit for it.

    welcome to the forum! Sorry to hear about your...problem...lol. Have you tried another browser?

    goosfraba... lol. and yes, i just watched Anger Management again. but seriously... have you tried the skyfire browser or any other browser. if you have and they didn't work for you. then you can always flash back to 2.1 with metro stock scripts. you won't have 2.2.2 but you'll get your music and porn back. i'm pretty sure you can find the stock scripts somewhere in this forum. if not, i'll create a link for you.

    edit: After some investigation i think i figured out your problem. it seems that you will only get the download options when you are connected to the internet through wifi. for some reason the options disappear when your not. at least that how it works with my phone after upgrading to 2.2.2. hope this helps.
