    Yes you can, if you root it..for a stock ascend i heavily recommend Z4Root..
    Then just follow the guides under the everything root section. If you don't like CM6/CM7 or any other mods, there is also a guide on how to flash your phone back to stock.

    Just make sure you get the Cricket Download for your phone and not the Metro one.

    Do you mean 05052011 the latest build? If you do then go here:


    CM7-Ascend - Prepaid Android

    If you want the previous build then I don't know where you can get that.

    The Huawei Ascend M860 Uses A Qualcomm MSM7625 System-On-Chip

    I was just given this by Isaacj87. I believe it finally puts to rest what is inside our phones. There is so much speculation that it was really impossible to know unless someone took it apart. Well someone did...That site is the results. ^.^

    Having messed with CM7 and CM6 for a while now, and obviously putting on my paid version of TIBU, i am finding both to be going through my battery really fast. Using my nice little program of Android assistant i turned off a lot of the start up and process stuff that i just simply will not use, however market and a few other apps are constantly running, and the only way i can get them to stop is by either turning off data which i dont want to do, or by freezing them which i don't want to do. It would be nice if there were actually no apps running in the background killing my battery while on standby, except for the ones i choose. But i guess its a small price to pay to be miles beyond what crappy metro will ever release to us.

    So have we pretty much given up on ever getting 2.2? I have not heard anymore rumors on impending release dates.

    Long time no see,TREYDUDE!Assumed you might have said F*** it & upgraded to another phone.

    METRO PCS actually has a 'TAPOUT®' edition of the ASCEND w/2.2 out of the box.
    There are 2 working versions of 2.2 available,along w/a 2.3 GINGERBREAD version available here.See the sub-forum 'ASCEND-ALL THINGS ROOT'. ALL 3 ROMS are virtually,if not totally,100% functional.It's worth taking a look at.
    Good to have you drop back in,TREYDUDE!

    Heyas Kolio! Yea I have been lurking, hoping to get news of an official update other than the Tapout phone. I guess I will check out the versions you mentioned. I was just hoping we would get the official one soon.

    Do these versions have working MMS? Seemed like that used to be the only issue I remember reading about.

    KOLIO NOTEoriously XPOSED Guide

    I just downloaded CM7 & it ROCKS! I believe MMS works,haven't tried it yet.I must say what I've seen so far is 10X better than stock.
    Believe me,its worth trying out.

    is anyone else having trouble installing the 05092011 build of cm7 ascend? i've installed practically every single other update he has put out and they've all worked flawlessly, but this one just hangs at the black huawei screen and does nothing. really odd, i even updated my clockworkmod from the 2.5.1.8 i had it at to the most recent one for the ascend 3.0.2.8... anyone know what the problem may be?
