    So, I'm kinda new to this site... I've been following this thread for a while now, but just actually registered. Is the first post no longer being updated? Has Cricket released an update as well, or just MetroPCS?

    I'm quite impressed with this update.. No lag at all. My apps run alot better. Market interface is more apealing.. Video playback is even improved.(3gp. I haven't tried any other formats yet). Metro did something half-way right... Scary.

    Well I decided to do the official upgrade and now well it seem my phone is stuck on the Huawei Logo. Not sure what its doing but I think i may have bricked my phone.

    Anyone know how long the initial update is supposed to take?

    Great my phone bricked. Off to Corperate store for them to fix it.

    ALERT!!! DO NOT USE THE OFFICIAL UPGRADE. IT HAS BEEN RELEASED BEFORE IT WAS SUPPOSED TO. IT WILL BRICK YOUR HUAWEI ASCEND.

    Just talked to metro and they are trying to pull that from the site.

    The upgrade will brick your phone.

    That's happened to me many times. One time it was stuck for a few hours. All the time, I just flashed to stock and tried again. Always worked for me.

    They may want to pull it off the site, but many of us have installed the upgrade with no issues.

    I installed, rooted, and got rid of the bloatware crap, and it did not brick my phone at all.

    Besides even if they do pull it, don't they know people already have it and have customized the hell out of it already...

    Mad prop's to PG for his work on the update!
