    They haven't announced a release date yet. The general consensus is that they simply won't ever release an update, since they are dropping the phone prices like crazy getting ready for the Glory. You can mod up to 2.2 or 2.3, though. I'm running 2.3.4 using PlayfulGod's CM7 06242011. Works great. I'm hearing good things about KMod's CM7 also. You can find those here: Main Page - Playfuldroidz Wiki

    I hate to link from one forum to another, but there is an awesome guide to doing just about anything you wish to do with an Ascend here: ultimate ascend customization guide. - Android Forums

    ust realize if you want to use PlayfulGod's latest mod, use his 06242001 build, found here: http://prepaidandroid.org/index.php?title=CM7-Ascend with the 20110306 gapps version found in the guide.

    Remember, you have to root your phone first, install CWM, then you can start modding. I HIGHLY recommend getting Superuser, then Titanium Backup after rooting your phone. Use the Superuser to help manage root permissions for apps, and Titanium Backup to back up all your apps and the user data associated with them. TB is superhelpful for re-installing your apps, and can do it all at once with the batch commands. After you install a CyanogenMod, it will root on it's own, and I believe they all come with Superuser.

    Again, I can't stress this enough. Backup, backup, backup. You will never come to regret it.

    I was nervous as heck the first time I modded up. I thought "Man, I'm going to ruin my phone." But it's really not that bad, and if you try out a few different mods, you'll be feeling just fine about it. Once you get competent about modding, you can even keep multiple mods on your phone, and switch them out with CWM.

    Shouldn't be a problem. Rooting an Android is only gaining supervisor permissions for apps. I don't see it making a difference at all. You really only need permissions for TB and CWM.
