    I need some help!! I have flashed cm7 before and today I was doing it again after going back to the Metro 2.2. I downloaded the latest version, 9-13-2011 one and the gapps, copied both to the root on the sc card and then I went on to flashing like I have done before but when it started to run the cm7 zipped file, it gave an error:
    assert failed getprop ("ro.product.device") = "ascend
    and then it stopped saying it failed. Now my phone is only booting the Huawei screen and no where else. I tried to download an earlier version and copy to the sd card but when I tried that, it says that my sd card is not writeable. I have mounted usb through clockwork recovery boot, but it is not working, I can see the files on the sd card, but I cannot delete any files nor can I move any files to the sd card.

    Please help. I am now without a phone unless I get this fixed and I cannot buy another one, I have no money to do this.

    Thanks!

    If you have a memory card reader then take use that and put the zip to the sd card.

    Do you have any other device that can take ad cards and is able to be connected to the computer? Jw

    And here's how to return your phone to stock in case you don't: http://androidforums.com/showthread.php?t=

    Follow it thoroughly and you should be back to stock. ;)

    Thought I had but when I to restore, it said there was no backup.

    The link in the previous message was cut off, can you give it to me again?

    Scratch that, I found the link and am going back to stock. Still want to know why I cannot flash cm7. Will try an earlier version that did work that I know. My phone is a m860 renamed Ascend now but my phone is a few years old, maybe it was not named ascend and the cm7 could not understand. Very strange. Feeling better already!

    H'm.. M860? That's the ascend. How does it look? Is it on cricket or metro?

    Flashed back to stock, now to see if I can re-root the phone and get cm7 on it. Hate that it does not let the headset work, but I like it better then froyo that Metro PCS uses even when I take all the crud apps off.

    I know that is the weird thing. It is a metro phone and I have flashed cm7 before, but only the 7-28 version. I tried the latest, 9-13 and it crashed giving me error messages saying something about ascend not being correct. So frustrating. Now I hope I can re-root the phone, it gave me trouble the first time I had to root it!
