    As unlikely as it sounds Metro is releasing a FOTA to improve the Ascend. You will still have 2.1 after this update but the performance is supposed to be much better.
    I read it here Huawei small update/upgrade, not 2.2 though...... and a friend that works at Metro confirmed it

    yep cm7 will be faster than the update metro suppose to bring out, but i bet this is just another myth.

    Okay. Increasing the idle speed from 245 to 400 isn't going to do anything but decrease battery life. That isn't overclocking.

    1. I don't believe anything I hear about Ascend "updates" unless someone actually gets it, implements it, and confirms it. Pics or it didn't happen.

    2. CM7-Ascend now has 05212011 on the wiki.

    I'd bet that they got the same OC Kernel that Isaac is using, Or one he has used before. I'd laugh forever...

    It's not an overclock, all they did was raise the minimum speed to 400Mhz, which won't do jack.
