Welcome to Cricket Users!

  • Huawei Ascend 2 Update to Android 2.3.5

    Note: If the links don't work for you, copy and paste them into the address bar.

    For those of you who don't know, Cricket Wireless has pushed out (or should be pushing out) an update for the Huawei Ascend 2. The phone should be updated to Android 2.3.5 from Android 2.3.3.

    This update will enable the native tethering option with Android 2.3 and will also allow the phone to access Muve Music.

    If you haven't received a notification of an update try going to your settings and choosing "About Phone". You should then see an option for online update. Check for updates. Then follow the instructions.

    If the update didn't show up:

    Option 1) Turn off the phone and then turn it back on. Then see if the update will appear.

    Option 2) UPDATE: This is not recommended. Read the update at the bottom of this post for more information. You can do a factory reset to see if the update will show up after. Note: You will lose EVERYTHING on your phone.

    Option 3) You can update the phone manually, but it will require rooting the phone which voids the warranty. This is the option you should choose if you want to root the phone anyway.

    Option 4) You can wait for the update to come through just in case it wasn't pushed out to your phone.

    You can also reply to this thread and see if others are experiencing the same problem.

    Some other threads you may be interested in:

    Please note: If you're looking to root Android 2.3.5, you would want to choose Option 3.

    Thanks to all in the community that contributed to the information posted here.

    UPDATE: I recently heard that Cricket is not pushing out the update in all of the markets just yet. They might be postponing it. You can still try to get the update just in case it is available in your market, or you can still update the phone yourself. I wouldn't recommend a factory reset to try to get the update just in case it isn't available in your market. If it's not available, a factory reset isn't going to change anything.
