    Ah, ok. I flashed DT's a2sd using CWM then after the phone booted, went into Terminal and did su and got root permissions, then tried a2sd check and got the message saying a2sd was not found.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    I updated my g/f's huawei with the official 2.2 from metro and I rooted it with gingerbreak 1.2 then I looked at this and oh boy I could have saved me some work lol.
    So I gave it a shot deleted all the metro crapware installed a new boot animation and the little guy (that's how I called her phone) run pretty smooth compared to what it was. She was happy with the phone but everytime I gave it a look it frustrated me like crazy.. Now she can see a difference!
    Everything runs good!
    Good job with this base rom! thanks a lot!

    Ok...wiped data/factory reset, wiped cache, wiped dalvik, formatted boot, system, cache & data, installed PG from zip, reboot && still no mobile data, only wifi. Do I have to do it the long way!?

    By the sounds of it looks that way. Must be something with your phone.

    How can I get into the APN settings?I know you said they were hidden. I've been reading that if I upgrade I would have to change the settings to get data...but idk && I have to dl the official 2.2 && then come back && modify w/ yours or can I not dl this specific update?

    to be on the safe side, revert back to 2.1 so you know data is working than install the update.

    yes, i flash it with cwm 3.0.0.5 and above, and works like a charm.

    I think you deleted the folder metropcs and only the apps in there you can remove and also de bootanimation.zip if you delete anything else from that folder causes lost of mobile data.
    I learned that cause I did but before I remove anything I always make a back up of it and I just replaced it and voila mobile data again

    Yea I did that yesterday and data and wifi are working fine but when I flash they are not. How do I get 3.0.0.5? I am using 2.5.1.3, I think it is...I just tried to flash back to stock but idk if it worked..

    You may be right I just looked in my list of SD Card folders && such and don't see that folder or file...am I SOL?

    **
    Ok...i've found both files on my computer...i'm going to try to do this all over again && add these files to the SD Card.

    **Still nothing.

    is supposed to be on the folder cust/metropcs (on your phone not your sd card)
    I would say flash back to stock then update with the official metro update then root install cwr flash this rom then with root explorer navigate to cust/metropcs/apps and delete de bloatware you want ...

    Like I said I had the same problem everything worked but mobile data until I replaced everything else that was on that folder but the bloatware and the bootanimation.zip.

    good luck!
