    If it hangs its not gonna work, fall back to previous build. Seems you're not alone tho, alot of ppl have had a issue installing the latest build.

    Are you talking about the browser? Why not just get it off the market?

    People love to make things difficult. Even if it was not on the market, you could still install the .apk through the phone without cwm.

    Not sure if this is outdated info regarding the 2.2 firmware upgrade but I went into the metropcs store to pay my bill and asked the guy working there if and when we will be getting a firmware upgrade to 2.2. He said I should expect a text message from metropcs sometime mid-next week with a link to go download the upgrade. I have been dealing with this guy for a while and he is pretty bright and straight forward. Hope he is right!

    Although i'm with cricket and don't know how much my opinion about this matters but... people who get stock 2.2 on their phones out of the box root their phones to get CM roms. Other than people who don't want to root, i don't understand why everyone wants a downgrade, which is what the official "upgrade" is going to be. With that said, i would like it to appear simply so the devs can have at it, but other than that, i see no use for it. Just my opinion, which may be worth nothing.

    i want to flash to the new cyanogenmod 7, im just too afraid to do it... I can't afford to replace this phone, no matter how stupid that sounds... lol I don't make enough money to pay for the necessities, since I work part time... I need a phone though, since my wife is pregnant, and I have to always be in contact with her...

    I wouldnt be afraid, it is virtually impossible to brick this phone. Just follow the steps in the guide and you should have no problems. I also suggest you use a card reader vs usb to the computer. When I first started flashing I couldnt get them to work (card reader fixed that). If you need help feel free to pm me and I will walk you through it.:D
