    --Root through Z4Root (make sure you get the right version)...

    **sorry as a disclaimer i should say this is all like year old knowlegde lol

    --Titanium Back upBack Every Thing-up and find the stock batch file for your PC/Mac

    --Install CWM (best through Rom Manager first and back up after you install CWM) versions or the isaacj87 ascend edition (his threads are where you will find all the info you need -- Megaandroid94 is another good thread too)

    --Download the most recent CyanogenMod7 zip - 9/22 should be around the newest i think
    --along with the appropriate edition of Gapps zip

    Put both on the root of your SD (not in any file)

    Then Reboot into ClockworkMod
    -wipe data factory reset (this is why you have everything backed up (contacts, apps, data, etc)
    -wipe cache partition
    -advanced/wipe dalvik cache
    -Mounts and Storage
    -Format Boot
    -Format System
    -Format Data
    -Format Cache

    -Go back to the main screen and Install Zip from sdcard
    -Choose Zip
    -CM7-Ascend - -- yes install
    -gapps - gb - -- yes install

    Go back to the main screen and REBOOT SYSTEM NOW... should take 3 minutes to boot (if that) but some might take up to 10 minutes... dont pull the battery until atleast 15-20 minutes and if your in a loop try to boot back into recovery and redo all the steps of wiping/formatting/installing/

    if still no work then go into recovery and restore your back up you made through Rom Manager and download different zips as well as format your SD card prior to installing the new zips on it

    like i said i never not got it on te first time and have even soft bricked it a time or two (battery life got me)... but it should work if you go off of Isaacj87 and megaloaders original threads

    I believe you're referring to the first Huawei Ascend, since that is the one that came with Android 2.1.

    I don't want anyone to mess up their Huawei Ascend 2 phone.

    Therefore, I'm moving this thread to the Huawei Ascend 1 forum.
