    Is it Possible to update rooted m865 to android 2.3.5-6 without loosing root access?

    As anyone who has tried to root their Ascend II with Android versions later than 2.3.3 knows, you must downgrade to android 2.3.3 to gain root access. My question is simple. Is it possible to update your rooted M865 Android 2.3.3 to 2.3.5 or 2.3.6 without losing root access? I've searched the Internet high and low, and can't seem to find a definitive answer to this question, and if it is possible please explain or provide links for frustrated users like myself. Thank you.




    Huawei M865
    Android 2.3.3 rooted

    CWM 5.0.2.7

    I do appreciate the reply however if it was that simple I would not have posted in the first place. I bought my M865 from cricket with Droid 2.3.6 wmuve, in order to gain root I had to downgrade to Droid 2.3.3. Then I flashed the Root.zip and installed cwmRecovery. I obtained the update packeges for the ascend ii, Droid 2.3.5 update.zip, and Droid 2.3.6 w Muve update.zip the only way I could use the updates was to flash the stock rom by putting the stock 2.3.3 "update.zip" in a folder at the root of the sdcard called "dload" and then while the phone was powered down hold vol up+down+power. Doing this did update the Android version but it also unrooted and removed cwmRecovery. Since then I have rerooted and reflashed CWMRecovery. Now I have root access and CWMRecovery and no matter what I try the update packages will not work. If anyone who has an ascend ii with any Droid version later than 2.3.3 and root access I would sure appreciate some help. Please no speculations I have plenty of my own and I agree with the one posted that from feedback it should be possible but how is that really helping any frustrated users like me.

    Yes you can keep root if upgrading from 2. 3. 3 to 2. 3. 5 but you have to do it manually and same with going from 2. 3. 5 to 2. 3. 6.

    The reason the update won't work its because of cwm recovery you have to flash back stock Android (3e) recovery to do an official update

    I just performed the whole procedure .. back date to 2.3.3.. Enable de-bugging .. Install the update.zip from the root directory ofSDCard ( It really doesn't matter where the file is located but for consistencyput it in the root directory ).. Once rebooted go to "settings" -"about phone" - "online update" let the phone downloadthe update .. version 2.3.6 will populate .. your done .. It worked that smoothly for me
