    Ok so I'm going to buy the Huawei Ascend from Metro PCS but before I do I wanted to ask everyone here a couple of questions before I buy because I figure the people at Metro will just give me a bunch of BS answers.

    First, this will be my first Android phone and I'm planning on rooting it. I keep reading about the Icarus MOD. Is this just a custom made OS by someone that has alot of the most popular features for rooted phones so you don't have to do them all individually?

    Can this phone view Flash webpages, and if not is there a way to make it so you can?

    Do you get apps just from the Android Market or is there another place to get apps that are for rooted phones? Or a good place third party apps?

    Are there any apps or things I should put on the phone once it's rooted, or kind of must haves that everyone uses?

    Ok my last question, at least for now because I can't remember them all, can you upgrade the OS to 2.2 yet? Or is it really even worth it to upgrade?

    Thanks for any help you can give me. I've been back and forth between the Ascend and the Optimus for a couple days now but I'm leaning towards the Ascend because there just seems to be more in development on it right now. Or am I crazy? HaHa

    Theres threads all over to answer all these questions... The 2.2 upgrade is not out yet, which supports flash, which 2.1 does not. I'm happy with my phone, especially for the money. Rooting seems to be the way to go, and the thread on rooting is VERY detailed and helpful...
