    Huawei Ascend 2 Update to Android 2.3.5

    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. Cricket Huawei Ascend II Upgrade from 2.3.3 to 2.3.5 (STOCK)

    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.

    Received notification of ONLINE UPDATE...

    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.

    update:

    i heard you gotta go into a corp store and get the 65 dollar muve plan change..as well you'll be given a muve music formatted sd card (if you have a 8,12 or 32 gig u can keep it.. ) thing is u dont go to 2.3.4 or whaever they gon give u IF U DO NOT take the muve music add on to your plan..
    *im guessing* crick corp decided to get in store walk ins generated, so they didnt agree with the server pumpin out online updates to each PHONES NAM or MEID( JUST A GUESS)

    I thought the update was supposed to be for tethering too, which wouldn't require you to go into a store.

    I think it would have been a better idea to push out the update to everyone and also allow them to purchase the MicroSD online. There are some people that can't get to, or don't want to go, to a store.

    Thank you for the update.

    You have to get it changed to the Muve Music Plan. There are 2 :

    $55oesnt have Market (Im sure tweaks can fix this)

    $65:With Market lol

    After that just download the Muve application thats been posted on this forum and your good to go ^^

    I knew it was "coming soon" but I didn't realize it is available now. I wonder if they sent out a text to all of the Ascend 2 owners to let them know.

    Just got the update message for the muve update today. I actually have no interest in this service, but would certainly like the latest 2.3.5 OS. Too bad the muve upgrade is the only one listed in the "online update" menu.
