    Not trying to down anyones work because i cant do half the stuff without instructions, so big ups to Issac and everyone that help with the cm6 & 7. but just wondering, besides both roms going faster on the updates, what is the real use for the project 6 & 7? of course they have a few better looks and better apps but.... just curious cuz im quite able to do the same stuff with a rooted phone that i could do with these upgrades? so whats the secret to the new upgrades and why experiment? What can i do with the upgrades that i cant do with a normal rooted phone?

    unless you just like 2.1 and basically do what isaac did with icarusmod, the stock rom just plain ass sucks.

    CM6 being 2.2 and CM7 being, both out perform the stock rom hands down even w/o overclocking. Both are also build from pure ASOP by Cyanogenmod and ported over by isaac for the Ascend. I dont know who Huawei has working for them building roms, but they just suck when compared to issac, and pip (maintainer of Cm6 now).

    If you are happy with the stock 2.1 and the mods you do, then by all means use it. But to me the stock ROM had me ready to smash the shyt out the phone. Since installing CM7 I love the lil thing.

    Well, technically, Froyo 2.2 had a crapload of fixes from 2.1 (speed enhancements, security, bugs, etc.). Gingerbread 2.3 has even more than 2.2, but doesn't work properly on the Ascend due to hardware constraints.

    By rooting (which isn't saying anything, really) and removing bloatware from a stock 2.1 build is cool, you're not really doing much. If you actually ran some benchmarks on Icarus and stock, you'd notice that there wasn't any difference between them. If you ran a benchmark on Icarus and 2.3 @ 748 MHz, you'll see a 2.5x speed increase.

    Also, developmental communities, keep phones like these caught up with the real world. Most phones coming out are at 2.2, meaning they can run 2.2 apps, have those features, etc. The Huawei Ascend is running 2.3 now, which a lot of higher-end phones don't have. Which is impressive. That's pretty much the whole reason why I experimented. There were a lot of people who laughed at 2.3 running on the Ascend. I don't think anyone can laugh now.

    But I've always been one to stress this point: Use what you wanna use. If it works for you, use it. Hell, if 1.5 Cupcake works for you, grab it, build it and use it on your phone. Try telling that to an iPhone user.

    All the highend phones except those that has came out recently or are about too only have GB. Rest have 2.2 or worse 2.1.

    And btw, 2.1 is the biggest POMFS ive have seen yet...and it should have never been made...but the company thought they would get over on us and sell it cheap, hahaha well the devs prove their @$$ wrong, these $100 with the tweaks and added feature its worth more than double, and if metro/cricket could had the knowledge to do what we do here trust me they wouldnt be $100...
