    Don't want to come off sounding like an idget, but.... where do I download the ROM to on my phone? I'm really new to all of this, I've only had the Ascend for less than a week, I did root it the other day though :) and I've installed CWM

    most likely something messed up during install, you are the only one I seen with no data thus far. The APN settings are set to hidden in the build.prop.

    tried reflashing and doing all the wipes?

    I still can not get data enabled. I re-flashed with CWM 3.0.0.5 and I get the same thing. No data. I wiped everything every single time.

    So you are going into Settings> Wireless & networks> Mobile network settings and selecting Data enabled and it will not turn on?

    Well, he said he was trying to get data enabled, so it sounded like he was trying to turn it on. He would have to tell it to turn on after the install, wouldn't he?

    Ok, scratch what I just said. I turned off my wifi and cannot get to websites either. Anyone know if it works on the update when loaded from Metro?

    It is on, but i get no data connection. I went back to Icarus to check, and I have data, however, I re-flashed to 2.2 after wiping everything and I have no data.
    It is very strange since it looks like there's other people running it without an issue.

    Are you flashing PlayfulGod's file, or the original update from Metro?

    Yeah, I had the same issue, so I flashed to stock and made sure my data worked, then went to the 2.2.2 upgrade. It is still working. Some people have done this then installed PG's file and it is working on them, so I may try to install his now.

    I flashed back to stock and tried the upgrade. I got a message saying that my system was up to date.

    PlayfulGod, can you post instructions for installing a2sd? I tried it on my phone and it keeps telling me that a2sd is not found.

    Go to this link Huawei Ascend Android 2.2 Upgrade and follow the instructions for Option 2. That's what I did and it worked for me.
