    I just got done trying BobZhome version and guess what at first I thought everything was working but than I went and tired to send a mms text and it gets stuck on sending even after applying the metro off it does not work also GPS does not work and data does not work the good news WiFi does work will I restored my backup and using your version 0624 because everything does work
    Thanks for all the help
    scratch that there is something wrong with metropcs in my area sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't my wife took her phone in to the store and they told her they are working on the problem with there 3g 4g service not working all the time just the last 2 days have been like this I thought I damaged my phone because I ended up taking it back to 2.1 and it still wasn't working. Wifi works great until you need to send a picture text mms it does not work until you turn off wifi and wait around ten minutes for it to get a connection and metro is saying it is on there side and they have been trying to fix it for 2 days now.

    The version of ADW in CM7 is build from source and not the apk you get off the market ;)

    Yea I kind of figured that since the one in CM7 works better than the one from the market + there is no adds and nothing is locked:D

    I know this may seem a bit nitpicky but since the update a few things went wrong.

    Video Support:
    No longer works period. YouTube.com nor YouTube for android can render video. On top of that Skyfire also no longer plays videos. And I used skyfire 4.0 before update so it isn't the app itself.

    Speeds are not slow for metro but slow period and way more random.

    Network connectivity:
    There are times when I completely lose internet and data services. When this happened I borrowed a friend's ascend which wasn't updated yet everything worked fine.

    So my question is this, can I use Icarus instead of the metro android 2.2.2 update? And will it have the same effect. Cause I miss watching anime while trying to go to sleep.

    Yes. You can use Icarus, or cm6 or cm7... you'll need to use gingerbreak to root your phone, z4root wont work on 2.2.

    data and mms has been out now for almost 2 days does anyone no how long it usaully takes these azz wipes at Metro to fix something because this is pretty fraking bad.

    You have to root your phone, using gingerbreak, if you plan on staying with 2.2.2. But as far as video hang ups, I would suggest you look at a virus scan. I use AVG for day to day things. I personally have never had a viral infection on my phone, but have heard it happens. I am also using 2.2.2, and have all of those things working. I would try a different browser, including the opera mini browser. You can get it via the market place.

    I rooted using gingerbreak. Just when I use skyfire it says video not found when I know it should.

    Hi :)

    I feel dumb asking this but I've been out of the loop for a while now and well ... I know MetroPCS came out with an official 2.2 Froyo update ... has Cricket done it yet?

    I'm running Icarus 1.1 currently.

    I have the stock on my ascend. I'm thinking about updating my ascend from 2.1 to 2.2 from the metroapp stores thru wifi. I just have a few questions before I do this.

    1. should i expect any problems with the update?

    2. They say to back my files up because everything will be erased, will I lose my wifi connection and have to set it back up? On my wifi I have to open the ports up before I can connect.

    3. what's the difference between the 2.1 and 2.2?

    thanks =-]

    No. Cricket has not released an update to 2.2, and I think it's safe to assume they never will.

    I don't think they will either. Especially since they just released the Ascend 2. They probably want everyone to go out and buy that if you want new firmware.

    Load of shit, honestly, and CM7 keeps having issues with the time falling behind when my phone sleeps ( It'll just jump to whatever time it is a lot of the time after I wake the phone and then I'll get all my notifications/alarms at once after it figures out what time it is... And no suggestions please I've been through the ringer on other forums trying to figure out what the deal is and never have ) so I'm just going to sweat 2.1 until Christmas and get a new phone with Cricket then. Hopefully they'll have a solid deal on a new phone at that time. It seems like they do every now and then, IE you can get the LG Optimus C now for a hundred bucks off online.

    Just follow the steps in there step by step, exactly, and you will have no issues.

    You should be trying to boot into recovery with Clockworkmod and then using that to flash and install CM7.

    In ADW Settings, turn on System Persistent. That should fix your problem. Also, it seems to help if you leave the clock open when charging.

    hey if your phone starts just go into programs and start clockwork mod and choice boot into recovery and your phone will restart and go into recovery without you having to do any of that awkward stuff with your hands trying to hold down this and that while pushing on that.:D

    HELP!!!!!!!!!!!! My Ascend was updated to 2.2 by metro pcs, and now its all screwed up. Superuser is stuck on my phone, I cant root it, etc. I'm ready to throw it!!!
  21. PlayfulGod

    try gingerbreak ;)
  22. theevildead84

    That doesn't fix it. It seemed that worked for awhile but it'll still at some point end up sleeping and the time will jump again when I wake the phone. That worked for awhile in ADW, but it wasn't permanent. Also ADW isn't the default launcher in CM7 unless you go with PG's version.

    Lock app into home memory doesn't work either.

    Also I shouldn't have to leave my clock open and leave it charged. I can do that, sure, but I don't always have my charger IE if I'm at my girlfriends or something. That and my emails/tweetdeck notifications are delayed until I wake the phone if it sleeps and the time doesn't progress until I wake it and then it checks for those things.

    Yup. Terribly annoying. Great ROM, stupid issue. I don't see why it does it.

    Actually ADW is the default launcher in CM7 ;) Isaac always opted for the stock android launcher tho.

    Ive had the camera error before on this phone and i simply turned it off and on and it would go away but this time i have turned it on and off at least a thousand times and it will not go away! i dont know how to get to my camera
    Do you think i should go to the Metro Pcs store?
    My phone is updated to the 2.2 software and it worked with it before but this just happened out of nowhere this weekend when i was camping!
    And i have not installed anything new so its not caused by any app like that so what could it be?
