    Ahh good stuff! How does it run performance wise?

    Someone bricked a Droid and have another one they want me to put on Cricket. They might give me an Ascend as a trade.

    MultiUpload download of CM6 ported to Ascend:

    You'll need the MDPI version of Google Apps for CM6. The latest version is available here:

    The following thread is similar to the instructions posted above, but it might be easier to read for some people.

    This is a link with details on how to install CyanogenMod 7, which is basically Android 2.3 on the Huawei Ascend.

    I know I'm a few months late, but I got here as soon as I could. I put Cyanogenmod 7 on my phone a little over a month ago, and while I do encounter the occasional hiccup I wouldn't call it prohibitive. In fact...there's not a chance in Hades that I'd go back to stock. The phone runs MUCH better, faster, more customizability...you name it.
