    Hi. I'm new here (just registered a few seconds ago). I did all the steps to root my Ascend, but the phone never rebooted. I went thru the steps twice. Is this common? Where do I go from here?

    Do distinctive ringtones work in CM7 on the ascend. I can set them but the default ringtone always plays. I'm running 05212011.

    I have the same problem rooted, CWM installed via Rom Manager but can't boot into recovery Vol up+ Call+ PWR. Same thing when I try to "Boot to Recovery" from within the Rom Manager. It just hangs at Huawei screen.

    Could you please explain how to do the "wipes" and I will reflash.

    Been having fun with my Ascend so far, trying to get to CM7.

    Love this site and thanks.

    PROBLEM SOLVED: Had to re install Win XP Huawei Ascend drivers (older driver than what came on phone) this allowed my Ascend to be recognized once in Fastboot and was able to run windows.bat to get to CWM, now running CM7!

    By 2.2, do you mean METROPCS' 2.2??? And you're on Cricket...

    If so, I'm not sure what you can do. I'm sure it can be fixed though. It seems almost impossible to brick this phone. Lol.

    A) Flash does not and will not work on the Ascend. EVER.

    B) Netflix doesn't run on Flash, it runs on Silverlight. Which DOES work on the Ascend, as long as you're running 2.2 or higher.

    I very knew to the this part of the tech world and I dont know what i should decide on. I have a rooted Froyo 2.2 Huawei Ascend(MetroPCS) and I want to know if i should either get CM6 or CM7 or PlayfulMod. I have read up on each of these ROMS and I know how to install them already, but I dont know which is the best so can SOMEONE HELP!!!!!

    why not try all of them, ;)
    and by the way, you know CM7 has 3 awesome builds
    (PlayfulGod, Kmod, BobZhome)
    In my opinion if you want froyo than CM6, Its 10x better than PlayfulGod 2.2 stock rooted ROM, because CM6 is really modded and stuff and faster.
    But overall just try all of them till you stick to one, flashing doesnt take long, i flash a new rom every week lol. But if you really want my opinion my best bet would be CM7 BobZhome 7082011 Build, Very smooth and fast, no problems that i found yet.
    P.S: Try to put this kind of thread under the section of All-Things-Root, up at the top! Just to be organized.

    lol alright, also if you really want a customized pre-set ROM than Kmod would be it, but it kinda lags but what ever, and hope you enjoy the forums! Also read the Edit i put in my first reply :)

    I downloaded this file to my pc and i am still not able to mount my phone. Was i supposed to download it to my phone and install it with cwm? Because every time i remove my sd card from my phone it jumps to cwm and i have to go through all the steps again and reboot my phone losing everything each time. I cant get my wireless tethering to work either.
