    Ok. That didn't work. What do I do to get my PC to access my phone now? I don't really care for CM6 and would like to go back to stock. Now that I can't access my phone through my PC what do I do?

    I got it figured out.. I had to turn off USB Debuging.. :) Now I am checking out Incarus. Seems pretty cool.. Just tring to figure out how to keep apps from re-loading in the back ground. I use NetQuin Android Booster. It has a optimizer that is like an App Killer. Just no settings to keep them totaly off until I want to use them..

    Thanks to everyone. Love this site..

    I upgraded my cricket ascend to the cm7 (Build 06182011) and barcode scanning apps like shopsavvy etc will lockup the camera and I have to reboot to get it working again. Anyone know why?

    I think it may have something to do with it trying to autofocus but I'm not sure

    Not real happy with the new CM7 build (20110618). It really screwed up my phone! I have a 16 GB SD card and with the addition of apps2sd, it automatically partitions it down to 4GB! That is ridiculous! The build would be fine if the apps2sd was removed! I like to have control over what is partitioned and moved to my SD card...not have my phone do it for me! I have spent the last day, backing up and completely wiping my SD card...just to get rid of the automatic partition! Please remove the apps2sd...it really sucks!

    BTW...LOVE the ADW Launcher in the new build!

    So Reading the Apps2SD portion of the guide, are the same steps taken to partition your sd card on CM6, or are there steps specific for that rom? And are apps automatically moved there after the partition is made, and will all new installed apps be installed onto the partition?

    it depends?

    if you are on 2.1 stock, then it's z4root.
    but if you upgraded, then it's Gingerbreak.

    hope that helps you.

    yes the cm7 camera has some problems with camera apps, no one knows why but it just does, i had the same problem, thats why i switched to cm6

    Not ALL apps are moved automatically. In my opinion, it is best to move the apps yourself. I have had nothing but problems with apps2sd.

    As far as CM6 goes...you have to partition your own sd. apps2sd automatically does it. It's a waste. In all honesty...I don't have my sd partitioned and I love it! I actually get a FULL 15.7 GB! When you partition your sd, you lose very valuable space.

    I actually went back to the CM7 build 05212011. I uninstalled the launcher on it and installed ADW launcher EX. It runs so fast and smooth! Plus, I don't have to partition my sd card and I can download anything I want.

    Apps that state they "automatically" move your apps are nothing but trouble. They really screw with your settings. Call me a control freak, but I want total control over my phone and applications.

    Icarus is 2.1, just cleaned up and overclocked...

    nuttmeg Well-Known Member

    icarus is 2.1 tweak and modified, and all bloatware remove, now with cm6/7 you cant go wrong but if you want 2.2 i suggest cm6 which is 2.2 froyo and oc to 710mhz.

    I have a question. With all the Mod Flashing and all why couldn't we just Flash the 2.2 Froyo from Huawei's web site?

    The site is at..

    Software - Huawei Device Co., Ltd..

    The file name is kernel-2.6.32-FROYO.tar.bz2..

    If we could Flash that to our ascends that would be great. If it would work..

    I just don't want to go screwing up my phone..

    you know what else would help if you showed the file locations to put all the downloaded files as if we were actually using a PC the whole time.

    what files are you trying to use?

    Awesome! Helped me so much! But... I gotta google a bit more, and find out why hardly any of my apps work. Today was my first rom/flash on any android, so, I'm still learning!

    Lots of Force Close stuff happening. I installed the CWM, CM7, gapps (GB), and MetrOFF. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

    what i meant was where do the files that we download go? cus i personally dont wanna download files directly from my phone, id rather download them on my pc then upload them to my phone.

    oh ok, but if you are installing a rom, in the instructions they tell you to put the .zip files on the main area of the sd card.
