    *OFFICIAL* Huawei Ascend Android Update Speculation Thread

    UPDATE: It looks like the update isn't coming. From what Cricket said (seen below) we thought the update was coming.

    We received information regarding the Huawei Ascend getting an update to a newer version of Android. We weren't planning on posting it just yet, but it looks like Cricket Wireless leaked it out on their Facebook. So, we'll release what we've heard now.

    From what we heard, the Huawei Ascend on Cricket Wireless should be receiving an Android update. We think that is going to be Android 2.2, but we're not certain. We also don't know when the update is going to be released. If we receive that information, we will post it.

    Here is a screenshot from when Cricket posted about it on their Facebook:



    Thanks to Darkencypher for the screenshot!

    UPDATE (7/3/2011):

    I'm running CyanogenMod 7 right now with Android 2.3, so I don't think I'm going to get the official update. I'm glad they're coming out with it though. I'm sure a lot of people will be happy with it.

    I'm not so comfortable doing that to my phone after my last failed attempt trying to update it. So I'll probably just wait.

    Yeah, if you're not comfortable it's not worth it. There was someone that walked me through it. I still haven't done it on my own yet. I'd rather have an official update, but now since I'm on Android 2.3 I don't think I'll want to downgrade to Android 2.2.

    It will still suck. I don't want to see another one, let alone sell one at this point! And they made a second one! Why did they do this to us?

    I'm happy with my phone. I think it's great they're releasing an update.

    I hope they continue to update their phones. I remember reading that they will be updating the Glory too, which is good news.

    I just have a bad perception of the phone from professional experience. Too many warranty exchanges. Admittedly, some customers after harder on phones than others.

    How is Huawei with warranties? Do they charge for shipping, or do they pay for everything?

    That's not right!

    I thought you go through Huawei for defects and problems with the phone that are caused by Huawei, and you go through Cricket if you have insurance.. What is there a manufacture warranty for if they just tell you to go to Cricket?

    From what I've been hearing most recently, it might not be coming.

    They could have just said that by mistake. Then again, maybe it is coming. I don't know for sure.
