Microsoft resumed sending out the pre-NoDo update the other day and while there’s still a few bugs in the system, Microsoft is reporting that only around 100 users, worldwide, are currently having issues with the update.
Microsoft is basing the number of users adversely affected due to the fact they have received reports from about 100 users worldwide. Granted, it could be possible that more had issues but just didn’t report them. We also don’t know how many updates were attempted. Commenting on the issue, Microsoft’s Michael Stroh stated.
“We’ve spent the last 24 hours aggressively investigating the issue, and have identified a work around for error code 800705b4. We appreciate the patience of customers affected by the error and will continue to carefully monitor the update rollout and troubleshoot any issues that arise.”
The work around consists of Windows Phone users removing all media first (songs, apps, games, etc.) from your phone before trying to install the update again. You can find step by step instructions on the work around here.
It will be interesting to how all these pre-Nodo headaches affect the actual NoDo update. Hopefully, it will enable our Windows Phone 7 devices to be updated problem free.
