Force Mango update early through Zune software and avoid frostbite

Sure, Mango has started rolling out today, but only 10% of eligible customers are actually scheduled to receive the update on day one. The entire process may take up to four weeks. That’s practically a month. I don’t know about you, but my go-go lifestyle doesn’t allow for that kind of waiting.

Thankfully there is a solution. No, I don’t mean to bury yourself under the snow and ask a friend to thaw you out after four weeks are up. That could totally backfire! Instead, why not trick Zune into giving you the update right away? The process has worked our staff and many of our readers, even European ones.

Find out how after the break.

Before we begin, keep in mind that a total of three updates must be installed on the path to Mango: 7392, 7403, and 7720, which is Mango itself. The process will take a while. Some people may already have 7392, in which case things will move a bit faster. I also recommend removing any music and unessential apps from the phone beforehand, as that can significantly cut down on the time it takes to backup and restore the phone's data.

Steps to force a Mango update on phones for which Mango has started rolling out:

  1. Connect your Windows Phone to a PC and launch the Zune software
  2. Click on Phone > Settings > Update. Allow the software to tell you whether an update is available. If so, skip this guide. If not continue to the next step.
  3. Time to force the update. Click another button (any of the options above or below the word Update). Then click the Update button again, and this time disconnect your computer from the internet after 1-2 seconds. Do this by pulling out the Ethernet cable, disabling Wi-Fi, etc. If it says your phone is already up to date, you didn't disconnect quickly enough and need to try this step again.
  4. Wait 30 seconds or so and Zune should display a notification that an update is available. This is 7392, the first Mango pre-update.
  5. Now reconnect to the internet and continue with the update process through the Zune software.
  6. After 7392 is fully installed, you may receive a notification that another update is available. If so, install it now. If not, proceed to the next step.
  7. If the second update isn't popping up on its own, repeat steps 3-5, causing the 7403 update to appear.
  8. Install 7403, brave reader. Speeding right along, isn't it? ;)
  9. Mango time! At this point, Zune should automatically start installing the last update, 7720, aka Mango. If it doesn't happen automatically, force it like we did in previous steps.
  10. This last step is very important! Celebrate your phone’s new found Mango status by purchasing a mango smoothie at your nearest Smoothie King, Jamba Juice, Baskin Robbins, or similar establishment.

That’s it! Let us know how this works out for you.

  • Love Ya :)) it realy works
  • Indeed. Updating as we speak...er, type!Go Paul Gomez (BTW, how in the heck did anyone figure this out!?!?)
  • To those forcing the update with a Samsung Omnia 7: are you sure the Samsung specific updates are installed ? It's supposed to install firmware version 2424.11.8.5.
  • I'm bathing in Mango on my omnia 7 but firmware states 0222.11.8.5. Orange UK
  • Yep it works for me in the UK HTC HD7 on O2.
  • Yes. Got my juicy Mango Update. Telus Mobility Canada, HTC Surround!
  • For people who can't get it to work. Do this. After going to Phone > Settings in zune software do the following.1. Press on update and start counting the no. of seconds till "Your phone is up to date" message appears.Suppose it takes 13 secs for example.2. Click on any link above or below update in sidebar and click update again. Disconnect net just 2 secs before the no. of secs it takes to get the "Your phone is up to date" message. Like in the above example if it takes 13 secs , you should disconnect net at say 11th second.In my case it took me around 21 secs to get "Your phone is up to date". So when i clicked on update for the second time I disconnected the net on the 18th second and VOILA!Have fun guys! Updating now! :)
  • Thank you! This description helped me to update! :-)
  • Works awesome!!!!I did exactly how u said it. and For the second time when i disconnected i just left it off for like 40 sec and then i got new msg to update and i plugged it back it and its done. I am installing my final update as we speak. Its a big update so it will take a while!! :))Good luck everyone!!!!
  • hey there,
    please spare sometime and help me. I have an htc 7 trophy that am trying to update but all in vain. when I connect to zune software via my laptop, it searches for updates, gets them, then I start installing them, all the steps continue swiftly but when its almost done and restarting the phone, it gives me error 80070070, which implies I don't have ebough space on my phone or computer, yet the phone is empty and my laptop has over 100GB, what could the problem be, I will be glad if u help me solve this problem, thanx 
     
  • Updating to Mango as well. Telus Mobility, HTC Surround. Works like a charm.
  • I finally got it to work on my HTC Surround. The key for me was something I read on another site. "Completely shut the Zune software down before step 3 (check task manager...Zune likes to linger after the window is closed)". In your task manager, under processes click "image name" to get the process list in alphabetical order. Find all the Zune related processes. Click each one to end the process. Once this is completed, open the software again. Once I did that and voila' Mango update was ready to install. ***Be sure to enable your wireless connection and connect to the internet before clicking the "install now" button!!!*****
  • Tried this trick with the NODO update a few years back, but it never worked. Went to try this, and it worked first time! Sweetness.HTC Mozart - Teltra Australia
  • Thumbs up in Germany, on a LG e900. It took a couple of tries, but finally zune found the major update 7720 on it own. Great work! Thx!
  • It doesn't seem to work for my Focus flash...... I've tried a bunch of times trying to hit the "sweet" spot and no timing works... might be that I have W8 running on my laptop idk. any advice?
  • I just may head out for a mango smoothie in celebration...especially since this update seems like its taking years to install. i guess 500 new features take their sweet time making their magical journey onto my htc trophy.
  • i keep getting "cant check for upfates right now"
  • That means you are disconnecting your internet to soon. You have to disconnect in the sweet spot, after its checked the phones model for update, but before it can see if your IEMI is elligeable. Try leaving it in a bit longer. On my wife's desktop it was a count to "two-one thousand" on an aging laptop I had lying around it took a 3 count (wasn't sure if this would work on WP Connector for Mac and we have two HD7s).
  • it's not working on my focus 1.3. Maybe I am doing something wrong. Is there a video with instructions?
  • for those curious...mango is now officially working on my htc trophy! and MAN it feels slick! even the animations when scrolling through the alphabetical app list look awesome! good luck everyone!
  • yes it works on the Verizon HTC trophy but i do have to tell you it was hard at first. Once i did all the update i lost DATA connection. Only Data could not sent mms or get on the internet, but after a few days of fooling around with the update and calling Verizon (without any help from them) i found that the HTC App call Connective help or something like that was the problem. So if you have this app installed, uninstall it first before the update and forget about it after you finished. If you have installed mango and having this problem then restore your phone back to its original state and uninstall it and begin with the update...... JUST FYI for all you Verizon Wireless HTC Trophy owners. By the thanks WPcentral for early update. MANGO rocks now if only we could get a quaility built phone like iPhone then i would move over.... this is my wifes phone by the way...
  • Woah! That worked!!! I'm installing it right now! Thanks for the tip!!Edit: Samsung Focus v1.3 is now on Mango!!! Thanks a TON to WPCentral and Paul Gomez! You guys rock!!!
  • installing mine on htc arrive right now
  • Fail. Doesnt work. How can it know what the update is without internet connection? Tmobile HD7
  • you disconnect the network, have zune check for update, when it say there is an update available, then enable your network again.
  • Still a nope. I disconnected the ethernet, even disabled the entire connection. Nope it says my phone is up to date because it cant find an update.
  • same here
  • I couldn't get this trick to work either. I eventually rebooted my machine and then it worked.Might have had something to do with my Verizon Trophy installing the 3982 (or whatever) update earlier this morning. Not sure why this update wasn't available BEFORE. In any case, rebooting my machine after going through the 3982 update did the trick
  • I have an Arrive and I had to reboot too before it would work. Installing now tho!!Wow you guys are amazing!
  • I don't know how my Zune software knew there was an update without the internet either, but this I do know: It worked.
  • This trick was available for NODO update. I believe someone stated the "disconnect" from internet trick is to actually prevent Zune from checking MS/Carrier for allowance. i.e. The initial update check already identified the update - but didn't show it to you. The second update check Zune knows its there but cant check rules until its too late. Thats why its called a trick. Yey.
  • How did it know?It's the Zune, man. The Zune abides.
  • You have to disconnect the internet connection between 1-2 seconds after you click on Update... not before, and it may take several times. What happens is that the software first checks to see what the latest version is and then checks to see if you're one of the lucky few (10%) to be authorized to receive it. If it can't find a "no go" at this stage, the software will return the "An update is available for your phone", at which time, reconnect the internet connection and continue with the update.
  • im updating now hd7 t mobile 6 time was the charm.. i had the 7392 update since july
  • same trick i had to do for the nodo update.
  • cant wait to finally get it
  • Yes, it does work, but Zune says that I can update my phone to a strange OS versione (7.0.4307 or something like that). Is it safe?
  • mine did that as well. it installs that and then does a second installation to get you to 7720. in fact, my verizon htc trophy had to install 7392 first as well because it apparently never installed the numerous times i connected it after i bought it...
  • Yes, that is a pre-Mango update. From there you springboard to 7720.
  • Quick question - does this trick also install all the other manufacturer-specific updates? Or are those packaged within the Mango install?Edit: Figured out that it does install manufacturer specific updates, too!
  • Nope, doesn't work for me either.. Sad :/Edit: Aah.. might be because I'm not from the states and use an Omnia 7..
  • I'm from India ! Just updated my Omnia 7 !!Keep trying !!
  • Absolutely NOT u.s only. Just updated my gf's Danish Omnia 7.Keep trying :)
  • Well, it didn't work for me either. I live in the US (Iowa) on the Sprint network with the HTC Arrive. Tried restarting my computer and phone as well. Did immediate disconnect from internet after selecting update as well as waiting 1-2 seconds. Even selected update after disconnecting, it just says my phone is already up to date. :(
  • It took me a lot of work. Make sure you try on Windows, and keep trying, I have the Arrive and it's updating. It is easier to have a laptop where you can tap a wife off button because you really have to do it in one or two seconds after the update check. Good luck!!
  • I also have the Arrive and I'm updating it right now. This is what I did: *click update and count the seconds that it takes to check if any update is available (EX 7secs) *click update again and disconnect the internet 2 secs before the time you counted (5secs) *connect the internet and install mango
  • I have just updated my UK Orange Omnia 7...immense! It does work but it took me a good few attempts to get the timing right on switching off my wifi...
  • do we get all the updates (firmware and mango) ? and like the chevron tool does this method stray us away from the official updates in the future?
  • Yes, I'm updating mine now and Zune says that it installs all previous updates if you didn't install them.
  • Works, downloading as we speak. Thanks very much!
  • lol just as i report i got a solution :D
  • its working but takes an eternity
  • Is this legit? as in do we get all the updates (firmware and mango) ? For example those samsung specific updates that comes with mango?
  • Yes, it does install the Samsung specific updates.
  • Didn't work for me. :(
  • LG - Telus in Canada btw.
  • Excellent. Telus. Nice to know I am not alone on the network. I have a HTC Surround. Gonna try to update after work.
  • I've the same phone with Telus and it worked fine for me. When you disconnect the internet don't do it immediately, take a good second or two like WhippedKream said.
  • Hey man, that's weird, it's working for me and I have an LG Optimus 7 with Telus as well, right now im doing the update after 7392, it jsut took awhile because I had to disconnect at a certain time, I don't know if it's the same for you but try it out! Don't do it too soon, nor too late, be like right in between and it should work :)
  • AWESOME SAUCE! IT'S WORKIIIING! I'm a Sprint HTC Arrive owner, and was kinda disappointed when I saw that other Arrive owners were receiving their updates and I wasn't. I started checking for updates, and then immediately disabled my laptop's wi-fi. Seconds later, I was finally being told I had an update!As soon as it's done, I'm heading out to Jamba Juice for a nice Mango smoothie! Thanks for the tip Paul Gomez, you're a life saver!
  • I am having a mango extravaganza today. Had a mango smoothie from Jamba Juice this morning, then had frozen yogurt with chopped mango, a mango beverage for lunch, and for dinner am thinking of a mango margarita/martini and mango sushi :-)
  • Worked for me! Thanks!
  • Does anyone notice that update is for the 7392 update...not the 7790 Mango update? Someone failed to notice that.
  • That is just because apparently you don't have 7392 yet. It has to go in order. When you get to the end you'll get mango.
  • Yeah, bit concerned about the version 7.0.4307
  • it seems to install this first and then 7720. no worries. just takes longer.
  • ok so i got the notice. the version available is 7.0.7403.0. I thought mango is at minimum 7.0.7720.0. TMO HD7 here. What versions are you guys getting??
  • just let it do its thing...its getting there....
  • It will install Mango after it installs that version
  • Have a TMO HD7 also, currently on step 7 of 9. Build 7.10.7720.68
  • This trick was the same with the NoDo update! And it works again! :D. Thank you soooo much for this, will be testing it right away and reporting.
  • Updating right now! First the 7403, them goes Mango live :). Again, thank you sooo much. To all of you, enjoy the pretty much anticipated Mango! :D
  • It is making a back up. updating right now!
  • Not working for HTC HD7 in the UK :(
  • This worked for me on AT&T Samsung Focus!
  • I just read the comment and tried it, and YaY! I am updating to MANGO. Finally! Been coming here for weeks to read up on any Mango bites and crumps, but here it is. I have the whole Mango. thanks
  • This worked for me on my HTC Surround.
  • im on the surround too, and i've been waiting all day to get home from work to do this. Too a couple of tries but it finally worked. Thankss sooo much.
  • Interesting. I just plugged in the phone and got Mango straight off the bat. Guess I'm lucky.What is interesting though is my phone did it the opposite of what I was expecting. I got mango first (was a little hesitant to put that on before "friends and family") and THEN I got a beta clean up update.
  • I did not need the shortcut process. I connected through Zune and selected updates and am now updating as I type this.I have a Samsung Focus v. 1.3 through AT&T
  • Is this legit? as in do we get all the updates (firmware and mango) ? For example those samsung specific updates that comes with mango?
  • Yes, it does install the Samsung specific updates. I'm installing 7720 right now (via this trick), and the description talks about Windows Phone 7.5, and at the very end it says "Samsung update for Windows Phone".Edit: Here's the screenshot - http://i.imgur.com/RG5nO.png
  • Oookay! thank you!! imma do it now too
  • I just would like to confirm, that the same happens to HTC. I have Mango (7720) for a while and now, when I checked the updates I was offered "HTC update for Windows Phone". I'm in the middle of the update, but I do hope there is the ability to connect to a hidden wifi :)
  • working for me, 17% into step 7 of 10, HTC Surround with Telus
  • sameeeeeee
  • Did not work for me. T-Mobile Dell Venue Pro.
  • Still not working. Maybe related - when I open Zune or connect the phone with Zune open, I get "Connection Error: We can't create a connection from your phone to the internet. You can still sync content between your computer and your phone. [ OK ]"Anyone else get that? I pretty much always get that, at least here at work.
  • http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2468384OK - ran the FixIt tool, which fixed the Windows Phone driver. Currently installing 7.0.7403.0!It is, however, considering this a "Guest" phone and saying that Music, Pictures and Video will not be backed up, so a restore would lose those items. (I already have them sync'ed so I'm not terribly concerned.)
  • I got that message the first time I tried on the TMO DVP and after several attempts I am now installing step 7 of 7720 yayy!!!
  • Well for those of you on a custom rom like myself (DFT's rtm 7720) this doesn't work. I had to quickly revert back to dft's older 7714 build. connected my device to zune and bam! updating to legit mango goodness.
  • Ok EDIT 2: You guys F***ING ROCKS!! It's ALIVE!!!
  • hi!someone know if in mexico works?saludos!! ( greetings!!)
  • no creo yo creo que mas alrato para ustedes en mexico
  • Si funciona en México, lo acabo de probar, haz el truco de arriba y si te sale pues chido... :) Yo tengo un HTC HD7 de T-Mobile y estoy actualizando :)
  • I have a Telcel LG Optimus 7 and the forced update procedure works fine. I'm updating my phone as I write this.Si funciona, Saludos!
  • Does this work if you have 7712 installed?
  • I have 7714 and it worked
  • almost done
  • worked just fine on a verizon HTC Trophy.. Thanks.
  • I love you guys!!
  • It works! :D Updating now :DHTC 7 Mozart - Orange Uk
  • Did you have the unresponsive lockscreen issue before you updated? If so, has the Mango update fixed it?
  • This worked great!! First time I checked for an update Zune told me it had the latest version... Then I checked again and immediately hit my WiFi switch and KABLAM!! UPDATE AVAILABLE!Thanks WP CENTRAL!USING HTC SURROUND on AT&T
  • works on mexico!!!!xoxoxoxoxoxo
  • almost there imma die from da suspence
  • Update: my phone actually told me there was an update before the pc did. Updating now to 7403 then i guess 7790 when it comes up.
  • I, too, had to install 7403. Once it's done, it will automatically pick up 7720 and install it (it did that for me at least!). Good luck!
  • Thanks. Have fun picking mangos. This backup is taking forever. Will we lose save games on xbox live games like Plants vs Zomnies. I got it beat and dont want to lose my game.
  • No, you shouldn't lose any save data if it backed up correctly.
  • so it went out evreywere in da world today i guess
  • Heck yeah, I remember you guys figuring out something like this for NODO, and mine is updating now. you guys rock so much. 7.0.7403.
  • Is it working for anyone who has T-Mobile? I can't get it to work.Edit: I finally got it to work! You guys rock!!!
  • ...................................
  • Just to clarify, you're saying go to Settings > Phone > Update?There is no "Check for Update" button. After you get "Your phone is up to date." you can click OK or Cancel, but that takes you back to the Zune home, with the black background. So you still can't click "Check for Update" because that's not a real button.
  • click another button, the re-click check for update then disconect
  • Yeah that had me confused too haha. But it works like a charm once you get it! :):)
  • Correct. When you go to Settings > Phone > Update and it begins to look is when you DC yourself for about 30 secs until it shows an update available.
  • it worked thank you!on my omnia 7
  • works!!!7.0.7403.0funciona en mexico!!!works on mexico!!!
  • Hey! Como te contacto? :)
  • On top of seeing my girlfriend, getting a new book by my favorite author, having some amazing sushi for lunch, and putting good work on my college application, I got my personal biggest update for anything this year thanks to you guys. Thank you so, so much; the trick worked like a charm, and it's installing right now. Gonna head out to smoothie king later in celebration! WOOT!
  • I don't understand why this worked... but it did.
  • Just worked for me, updating to Mango right now.
  • It's currently updating on my HTC Arrive from Sprint, thanks Paul, and thanks WPcentral staff!
  • How do i backup my phone before updating this?
  • It backs it up automatically during the update process.
  • Thank you, could live without Ya!!! Doing step 10 on my Samsung Focus rev 1.3!!!I hope it works.Thanks again!!!
  • omg yay!!! this totally works..i had to do it twice but now my att lg quantum is udating as we speak to mango!!! AWESOMNESS!! todays gonna be a great day ^_^
  • http://twitpic.com/6rin6r
  • Just in case anyone else is as dense as me and struggling to get this to work, it's not the "Check Update" in the Zune software tab but the "Update" in the phone tab.(And, yes, it's working for me and my Samsung Focus. Downloading now... *grin*)
  • I just get phone is up to date... :(
  • You have to disconnect your internet connection pretty much immediately after clicking the "Update" link in Zune. Good luck!
  • Dont't worry, it did that to me about 20 times before I finally got it, you have to be very quick :)
  • Ive tried disconnecting right away, Ive tried waiting a second or two and Ive done at least 50 times... I am saddened
  • Doesn't work for me on AT&T Focus 1.3. Tried about 20 times so far.
  • this is what i did straight away after it told me my phone was upto date. Im currently on stage 7 - backing the phone up. HTC HD7 O2 UK
  • I was in the process of installing the leaked Mango ISV Beta version, so when I connected, I finished that process. When it finished installing 7720 ISV Beta, it found and ran "Mango ISV beta Bundle: Cleanup." After than, another update became avaliable, "HTC Update for Windows Phone." What I found different with this update is there are 10 steps instead of 9. I'm istalling as we speak. I tried the above steps to "force update" but I can't say for sure if it worked. I'm on the Telus network in Canada. (I have screen shots if anyone is interested.)
  • That's what I got too for my HD7 on T-Mobile. Is that gonna be all for the Mango update? Or should I expect another update?I tried doing the trick, but as soon as I disconnect my Wi-Fi, the Zune tells me that my phone software is up to date.
  • Worked for me as well after a few tries! Just a tip, don't unplug your network connection as soon as you click on "Update" button, just wait a few seconds and than.
  • WORKS!!!WORKS!!!WORKS!!!WORKS!!!Couldn't be happier!!
  • Does anyone know if this also works for those who have the Beta version of Mango? There were supposedly some cleanup updates to load that enable Beta versions to NOT have to drop back to NoDo.
  • Worked for me. Same trick was used for NODO. Thanks.
  • Updating now without needed to force the software!! I'm stoked!! My Verizon Trophy will be full of Mango goodness soon!!!
  • Worked T-Mobile HD7... Happy Mango day everyone :)
  • this trick really works for my ATT samsung focus rev 1.3
  • This trick is working for me, although 7403 on my phone equates to 7.0.7403, not Mango. Zune is now downloading a 2nd update to install. The software is saying that it is installing Windows Phone 7.5, but it said that on the first update.Curious that it seems to do this in multiple stages ... but good that it is possible to trick Zune into getting the update early.
  • ... and Mango has installed, complete with new boot logo :-).Nice one!
  • Doesn't appear to work from UK - not HD7 anyway :( all I get it "Couldn't connect to the update service" etc.. I'm jealous now .. guess I'll have to wait a little longer..
  • Repeat the steps man, i was thiking the same way as you, and now im updating, try it 10 times, when the " Searching for updates logo loads, Wait for it to complete and disconnect the phone " ... Tell me if it works :D HD7 T-Mobile México
  • Just noticed a post of someone actually getting it to work in the UK (HD7) .. Should I persevere a little more?
  • not working for me...i keep getting the cant check for updates error after i click update/disable my wifi.
  • Well it is on step 7 of 9 using the forced update for the past 30 mins. So yes the steps worked. Ahh and just as I typed this it finished step seven.SCORE!Verizon HTC Trophy
  • I was a little scared after the 7392 update, because I was getting errors trying to get the 7403 update. After disconnecting my phone, closing Zune, and reconnecting my phone the above steps worked for 7403, though.Thanks! I'm sharing all I can over twitter. :)
  • o2 germany hd7 here, didnt get an update from msft. thanks to your awesome tip, im updating right now! thanks! i hope there wont be consequences to you, considering that this got pretty popular so fast.
  • Suck it Microsoft. 10% my **** Worked on the second try.
  • I don't think it's Microsoft - it's the carriers. Tell that to AT&T.Suck it, AT&T.
  • I keep getting this errorhttp://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/842/failhx.png/
  • Try turning on and of Zune then retry. Click the updates button and after 2sec. disconnect from Internet
  • Didnt work for me..AT&T Focus 1.3
  • Works like a charm! Samsung Focus 1.3 / Nodo on AT&T. Updating to Mango now!
  • WOOORKS!!Samsung Omnia 7 / Ireland / Meteor
  • It's working on ATT&T and my Samsung Focus v1.3!!Love it! Thank you for the tip!
  • It did take a few times and careful timing on the unplugging of my cable.
  • I'm being Mangofied!!! Thx U WPCentral!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • TY Very much for this info. I had had the RTM on my phone and rolled back last Thursday to get ready for this and I was going crazy after losing all the awesome features of Mango. Now I can enjoy the bliss that comes from such sweet fruit again! :D
  • Did not work for my Samsung v1.3. The trick upgraded my phone to 7392, but not beyond that.
  • You have to do the same trick again, and it will install 7403. Once that's done, it will automatically download 7720 and install it. Good luck! Just a word of caution - after installing 7720 the reboot takes FOREVER! It stayed on the "SAMSUNG" screen for a while and I got worried. But it eventually moves on and completes the install.
  • charm, cheers guys
  • Bell Canada, Ontario, LG Quantum, Works!
  • i have the lg optimus quantum and also on bell the "trick" is not working are you able to help me out
  • Just gone through the double update process. Looks good to me. Yay!!
  • Ive got it working now .. it does work in the UK (HD7 O2), just needs a little peristence .. Make sure you wait a second before disconnecting network :)
  • Thank you!!!
  • Well this was amazing, and to celebrate when i go get the groceries for my parents im gonna buy a mango and put it on the kitchen table, and only my dad will probs figure it out lol.
  • installing mango on a samsung omnia 7 (tmobile) in the netherlands (Y)
  • Just installing the second part of Mango on my HTC 7 Pro with O2 Germany, thanks for the instructions. :-DYou don't have to disconnect from the internet immediately, it worked fine for me waiting about two seconds. And an HTC update is included BTW.
  • Just plugged my Verizon HTC Trophy into my MAC and opened Windows Phone 7 connector, clicked update and...tada! Go Verizon! It is installing presently!

  • I had wifi on on the phone and both boxes ticked. It worked then. Don't know if it was because of the wifi but before I had that on it didn't work.
  • The internet connection we're disabling is on the PC. Your phone can stay connected to the net.
  • When the box "use my celluar data connection to check for updates" is checked, its always your phone is up to date, if it is NOT checked, it cant find the update server... Data connection is on, wifi is off.
  • Thank you, ultrateen!!!After dozens of attempts, followed your suggestion and unchecked the "use my celluar data connection to check for updates" box on the phone, followed the steps again, BINGO! - it found 7392.Had to repeat the steps for 7403, but Zune found 7720 by itself.ATT Samsung Focus Mangoing as I speak!!and wpcentral ROCKS!!
  • I made an account just to say this....IT WORKS OMG SD;JHALSDJFALSFJHLSADKJHFASFASDFSKDJHJAKSDHFJSAHLKUpdating now!!!! :D
  • It works!!! Installing on my AT&T Surround right now.
  • Have been updating my phone for one and a half hour, I'm glad we haven't been rolling out WP7 for our users at work, it would have taking ages for updating all phones...Almost done now, I'm so excited! :)
  • On the other hand, it would be hilarious seeing a bunch of people scrambling to disconnect their computers in order to get the update!! :)
  • Stuck at work... can't wait to try this. :-o
  • Worked beautifully on my AT&T Samsung Focus. There's a reason why I visit the site every day. Thank a million.
  • This works on my TELUS LG Optimus 7, I am updating right now. I hit update and immediately pulled my ethernet cable. Updating to 7403 at the moment.
  • So far I haven't been able to get it to work on my VZW Trophy. It's stuck at 7392 for now. (In Wisconsin)
  • Omnia 7 on KPN (Netherlands) updating...
  • Its working!!! Good looking out WPCentral!
  • Working HTC Mozart - T-Mobile Germany
  • update 2: with the first update to 7392, pulling the cable quickly made it happen. Getting to 7403 required the 1-1000, 2-1000, pull cord which then gave me the udpate! woo hoo!update: spoke too soon. this only got me to 7392. I'll keep trying for Mango!! For those not getting this to work, here is what worked for me with my Focus (v1.3) after failing with the above instructions numerous times. 1. Completely disconnect the phone from the computer and close the Zune software. 2. Reconnect the phone to the computer and relaunch Zune.3. Go to phone/settings/update and let it tell you no update available. 4. Then DO NOT click the "OK" button. Instead, click one of the links under "update" in the side nav. 5. Then click "update" again and immediately remove the network cable.6. Follow the rest of the directions (starting with step 5) in this article once you get the update available notification.
  • Thanks! I was having trouble getting the original instructions to work. Following your steps (i.e. disconnect phone, close Zune, reconnect phone, open Zune, proceed) did the trick.
  • Holy **** mine went to 7403, its updating right now. Its a HTC HD7 on t-mobile unlocked from O2.I'll keep you updated. Sooooo excited cos' this trick didn't work when nodo was coming.
  • Updating my HD7 with T-mobile. It took a couple of tries but it worked. I'm a reader for life, thanks guys you rock.
  • anyone finished installation? works well?
  • Took a while, but it is SO worth it! Bing vision and music are awesome!
  • Mine is on the Mango update, step 8 of 9, restarting your phone. It's been stuck on the "Samsung" logo after restart for almost 10 mins. Hope it finally gets through this part and shows me my screen again. Finally booted.. New screen!! Yay!
  • Done and it works great - took over 1.5 hours to back up and update but it is finally done. HD7 on Bell in Canada.
  • IT WORKS!HTC Mozart Mangofied!
  • Wow! It works in Czech Republic (HD7)
  • What is the build of the official Mango?
  • 7720
  • I mean is it higher than 7720.68?
  • I was able to get it on a Samsung Focus v1.3 by reflashing all the way back to stock 7004.Before it was 7004 -> 7008 -> 7390 for v1.3.Now it is 7004 -> 7008 -> 7392 -> 7403 -> 7720.My guess is that it forced the update to Mango because the Samsung Focus v1.3 didn't get the 7392 security update before Mango's release and since 7392 includes 7390, 7390 isn't available anymore.Can't vouch that this will work for every Samsung Focus v1.3, nor can I recommend reflashing back to 7004 either.
  • updating my unlocked omnia 7 in the netherlands!
  • Seems to be working OK - HTC Mozart on Orange UK. 7403 updated first now on stage 7 of 7720. Great tip - thanks!!
  • Did you have the unresponsive lockscreen issue before you updated? If so, has the Mango update fixed it?
  • I got it to that stage then stupidly i forgot to re-enable the wifi and its not finding the update now :(
  • Tried it a couple of times on my 7392 Omnia 7 (Vodafone, NL) without luck. Waiting 2-3 seconds before disconnecting did trigger the update. Now busy with step 7 of 10!You guys rock!
  • im on vodafone uk lg optimus and im just downloading the mango update. happy days ;-)
  • Worked for my LG Optimus 7 on Telus in Canada!
  • Thanks for the tip :) updating nowHTC HD7 o2 uk
  • It took me a few tries, but the secret is definitely the timing of when you disconnect your ethernet cable. I kept pulling it too early. Like someone pointed out, click on Update, then 1 1000, 2 1000, pull cable. You want to try to pull the cable closer to the time it normally tells you the software is up to date rather than immediately after clicking update.It then took a little while while it figured things out, then indicated I needed 7392. I am currently backing up my phone (19%, it's pretty slow).Samsung Focus 1.3 on AT&T.
  • sorry, cuold this work on a samsung focus 1.4? thankx
  • Eugh backup is really slow, i deleted all pics and music, should have deleted apps too im currently updating to 7403 so going to be a while..
  • not working for me. i already had 7392 but nothing happening now :( i will persevere though
  • Hey guys, registered just so I could tell you it worked for me. Samsung Focus at&t.If it helps anybody else out, I have a 32g kingston memory card in my phone and it gave me some problems with the sync ever since nodo. The update only worked after I factory reset, maybe because of the memory card, I'm not sure. Either way, it worked for me!Thanks alot!
  • Ha. I can't believe this works. I've resisted all previous naughty forced updates, but this one I just couldn't hold back from... downloading 7403 now.
  • Got my smoothie at lunch but had to wait until I got home to install since I don't trust my school's wifi. In any case I am now installing (didn't need to force it) in my Trophy and am excited as ****
  • Ok, I lied. I got to 7392 but had to force to go further.
  • S-U-C-C-E-S-S! That's the way you spell Success!Worked after 3 tries, so try it a few times for those who can't get it.I was getting the error code of can't check for updates, try later. But again, after the 3rd try... looks like we are in business!It's updating now! Hopefully everything goes smoothly from here! =)Cheers!
  • im on beta 2 and all i did was plug my T-mobile.HTC HD7 into Zune and it found the update without me doing anything. Im located in CAupdate. mango already installed now waiting for this HTC update to finish.
  • Man, I don't believe it! it actually works!! I'm updating now that I'm typing these words to version 7403 and hpefully next to the final version of Mangooooo!!!
  • Same trick i used for Nodo. i actually tried it this morning once before this article and told myself, "what are you, an idiot"... but then tried it now, its installing 7403 as we speak. works so far.
  • installing 7720 now.. which i just read is mango :o excited!!!
  • Just updated a Sprint HTC Arrive , AT&T Samsung Focus and a VZW HTC Trophy this way.
  • Looks to me like Zune is ready to update my VZW Trophy without any tricks as of about 5:20 p.m. Eastern Standard Time here in NYC, NY. Going to wait till I get home, though, so I can babysit it if need be.
  • Turns out my Trophy and Zune were only offering the first update. Did the force this morning and it's updating after a couple of tries. Fingers crossed.
  • I've tried multiple times/reboots, everything, still not working for my Omnia 7 (t-mobile branded, unlocked)
  • shiiiit, it happens now, updating to MANGO!!!!
  • Ahh! This mango is great!Ive been running the beta on the HTC HD7 and Ive been satisfied with everything so far. I cant imagine what else this phone will be able to do...
  • Joined so I could say worked for me. Didnt backup my phone and it's loading very fast!
  • It worked for me but it's been stuck on step 2 (0%) for over 20 minutes, and I'm connected to the internet. Is it supposed to be this slow?
  • Updating to 7403 and still in the 'please wait while we determine the amount of disk space required to complete the update' part... been here for quite awhile... (like 20 minutes or so...
  • If that happens and you're sure it's just stuck, you may want to disconnect the phone and reconnect it. Happened to me once too.
  • Anybody seen this work on an AT&T HD7S yet? I won't get a chance to try it until I'm home from work in another ~4-5 hours.Since I also haven't seen anybody mention this works for a Focus v1.4, I'm not getting my hopes up. But it can't hurt to try. Worst case nothing happens.
  • Lol actually it's worst case your phone gets bricked...
  • Well, worst worst case is I pick up a $0.01 Focus to tide me over until the Titan, Focus S, or Nokia phones are available.But it's unlikely the phone will brick. The HD7S is functionally equivalent to the original HD7, just with an upgraded screen. There are plenty of reports of the HD7 non-S upgrading to Mango just fine, which means the HD7S should upgrade as well. AT&T are just being idiots, waiting on updating this phone. It's like they never wanted to release it in the first place, and are now punishing those of us who didn't want a Focus.
  • I've seen no report here or on twitter about it working for att hd7s or dell venue pro.
  • installing on my dell venue pro at the min... will let you know if I have any issues !
  • is your dvp att sim-locked or did you buy an unlocked phone?
  • Running all the delicacies Mango brings. thanks guys
  • OMG IT WORKS!!!!!!!!
  • Thanks! I went through the steps once for 7392, and again 7403 and that kicked off 7720 automatically. Waiting for that to finish...
  • it aint working for me i tried it around 15 times. whn i click update checking for updates like goes on forever. i am using at&t samsung focus. :( trying it again.
  • Maybe you should leave it checking for a couple of minutes and see what happens.
  • It took my Focus and Surround about a minute after I disconnected for the update to show up. The trick is disconnecting quick enough after clicking on the check for update link.
  • Beast. It works, installing as we speak. Amazing.
  • Worked perfectly, Samsung Focus 1.3 on ATT. Took several tries to hit my wifi-disable soft-key at the proper timing, but other than my trial-and-error timing it worked as specified.
  • it works in Greece!!!!!
  • thanks WPCENTRAL!!
  • Turns out I only had 7390 on my Samsung Focus. I went all the way back to 7008 to restore, did this trick, and now I am installing 7392. I hope it will work. So if you're having trouble on the Focus, restoring may be the way!
  • Repeated after, 7403 is there and updating as we speak. Looks like this is the way for a Focus!
  • Brilliant! Worked like a charm. Go mango.
  • How long did the update take?I've been sitting on Step 6 of 10: Restarting Your Phone (Installing the 7392 update) for almost an hour...I read the update may take 30min - 1 hour...Thoughts?
  • is ur phone a samsung device? step 6 should be 3mins top..
  • when i click on chk for update and remove the wire it say checking for update and after that it say "Cant Check For Updates Rite Now,Please Try Again Later"Ne Solution Guys
  • Try it a couple of times.Reboot your PC. Got to Zune, Settings, Phone, Update... When you click Search for Updates, disconnect your Interent or Disable WiFi. Timing seems to be the key...It worked for me after 3 times!-Cheers!
  • Awesome...been trying for an hour and nothing...even after the phone told me there was an update...
  • I was going through the update process and on the final update step 8 (restarting phone) my phone won't restart so I'm not sure where to go from here
  • got it going....good advice from justinh66 to count 1, 1000, 2, 1000 then turn off internet...worked a treat. now officially running windows phone 7.5....very red!!!
  • HD7 is officially Mangoed!! Call the Mrs. and tell her to prep her diaphragm, because celebration **** will be in effect later!
  • haha, It's been awhile since a forum comment actually made my laugh out loud. My wife is looking at me like I've lost it, I'd explain it but I doubt she'd understand or care.
  • The tip works like charmed!! Thank you for the tip! Mango on my Samsung Focus v1.3 AT&T. Love my Mango! Great job for Microsoft Developer and AT&T.
  • did the force update thing and it seems to be working.we'll see how the update goes
  • Keep me posted bro! My update has been going for an hour on the 7392 update! Let me know how yours goes!
  • Worked for me!!!!Samsung Focus on Rogers.Awesome!
  • Worked on my Verizon Trophy! Good for us they didn't fix this in the last zune client update.
  • Thank you very much for the tip, but I get an error at the end of the final update: error 8018001eI'm using an unlocked LG Optimus 7 (E-900). It's exactly the same error these people have here:http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/winphone/forum/wp7-sync/lg-e900-updat...Any advice please? I'm desperate....I was waiting many months for this update...
  • Been trying for over 2 hours now on this laptop - patience of a Saint me!I just can't get a forced upate, even though I used this trick to get NoDo. Best 'potential' step forward I can make, is to have the 'Checking for updates' hang and do nothing (having left it for over 15 minutes). Otherwise it's either side of the process (Up-to-date / can't check for updates).I'm using the latest Zune software now, interested to know if the same applies to everyone else who can't get it?
  • I'm on EXACTLY the same boat. Frustrating part is that I tried my dads phone on his computer and I got it on my first try. Im totally lost
  • rite, so far so good, im in the middle of creating a backup, it has taken me about 50 trys and ive lost about 3 hours of my life, but it will be worth it. And by the way, im in Northern Ireland and using a Dell Venue Pro, so add that to list ! woo hooo gimmme some mango !!!!
  • I set my network connections window right next to the Zune window and clicked Disable immediately after clicking the update link. 7392 is done, 7403 is in progress and next up is MANGO!Thanks for posting this!
  • Worked here, AT&T HTC Surround ;)
  • Just updating to 7403 as I type. Took me over an hour to get the update button to appear, but eventually got it. Can't wait to get Mango on my Omnia 7! :D
  • Worked perfect. Thanks!!!
  • Worked for me, had to "trick it" several times before it would work, and needed to clear my memory because the backup process took forever and would time out. i have a samsung focus rev 1.3
  • I'm on 7712 ISV beta at the moment. Plugged in my omnia 7 so i could do this force-update, and up pops a message saying "update available - Mango 7720 Final" i guess i must be one of the 10% getting mango first. I've got the titan on pre-order so when that arrives will be good to see how much of a difference the 1.5ghz chip and 205 instead of 200 gpu makes on Final mango
  • I just did this to get the 7392 update and it worked perfectly. It didn't pop up with the second update so I did what they said and repeated the process. However, this time it's just sitting on the "checking for updates" with the progress bar. I let it go for about ten minutes and nothing. I clicked ok, turned my wifi back on and went back to update and now it is still just sitting on the same page (with internet still connected) and not telling if an update is available or if my phone is up to date.
  • YAY! Worked on my T-mobile HD7!!!
  • Worked like a charm - HD7 Carrier-free
  • It's currently working for me as we speak, btw I have an LG Optimus 7 with telus, but my concern is, will it void the warrenty?
  • It worked for my Verizon trophy! I have a switch on my laptop to turn off wifi. i found that i had to turn it off before i hit update button because it takes a couple of seconds to actually turn off. other than that no problems.Thanks!
  • I got this to work after a few tries. I just pulled my wireless adapter as soon as the mini-progress bar loaded on the update section. Worked all 3 times. I'm a Mango WP7 now. :)
  • it worked for me. updating right now
  • Downloading Mango on my samsung omnia 7 in CroatiaThis is great, thanks guys.
  • Can anyone tell me if it works for focus v1.4 ive been trying for hours :(
  • It's not available for Focus 1.4 until late October.
  • yeah baby. this worked on my samsung omnia 7 via optus australia. updating now!!
  • I should warn that if you have a bunch of data the update can take a really long time. In my case 45mins X 3 so 2hr 15mins. This is because of the backup it performs first. And since there are 3 updates this can take a while. I guess safety first is a good thing. I just wish they could roll the updates into one with one backup so it didn't take so long. But Mango is worth the wait!!!
  • Used the "trick" to get 7403 and Zune then picked up 7720 automatically. LG-E900 (Optimus 7) Vodafone UK. You know when you've been mangoed.
  • Ive tried everything i cant get it to work with my samsung focus 1.4 i dont wanna wait another month......
  • Ok not working for me... Focus 1.3... Tried doing everything from immediately disabling the adapter to waiting almost to its done checking... :(
  • This is AWESOME! Thank you wpcentral! I wonder if I'll be allowed to name one of my children wpcentral? =PThanks again! You guys are AWESOME!!!
  • I have been attempting this ALL day and failing. I just now restarted my computer, thinking that would somehow make a difference (I was desperate at this point). When I started up Zune, a phone notification popped up and my update process began! I guess I'm part of the 10% that got the update rolled out today. So I'm really lucky on that hand because I could not get this method to work for me. Then I found out my phone's driver needs to be updated (error 801812C1). So still no idea if I'll have Mango soon, but this is progress. Good luck everyone else.
  • Hi, just to add encouragement to those that want theirs sooner than later but seem to get flustered by the process.1) Samsung Focus v1.32) AT&T3) 16GB total (including +8GB MicroSDHC WP Approved i.e. ATT EXPENSIVE memory module)4) 300MB Free (i.e. virtually all of my storage used)5) Performing the trick described herein worked (i.e. the NODO update trick)6) Airplane mode was active from the moment I plugged my phone into my computer (with Zune waiting)7) Per instructions, I repeated for each update up until Mango: I had to let it check for an update once while connected to the internet. I then had to pull my network cable at about 3-5 seconds after attempting to check for update the second time. Updates appeared as "available" only after trying to pull the cable a third time. When you receive "an update is available" message plug cable back in and the proceed to update. FWIW my update process only backed up my phone once. It zipped past the two smaller updates followed by the larger Mango build.Patience is a virtue even if you don't have any. Cheers and good luck,
  • This does not work for the HD7s. Didn't MS\ATT say it wouldn't be available until mid October? I recieved the update on my Mango beta focus 1.3 this morning with no issues. Bummer on the HD7s.
  • im updating mine now im on tmo with the hd7
  • Successfully updating an ATT Quantum right now...GREAT!For those of you having trouble, I also rebooted my computer with my phone attached, then launched zune, selected phone|settings|update. Once it told me that my software was up to date I then clicked wireless sync, the had my hand on my Ethernet cable, clicked update again and pulled out the cable on the count of 1,001...about 20 seconds later it popped up that there was an update. Plugged the PC back into the LAN and am now updating!Thanks!
  • Has anyone gotten this to work with the Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac?Tried it but couldn't get it to work on a Samsung Focus.
  • Awesome! Downloading update as I type. Took a few attempts to get the timing right but then I scored! Thanks for this awesome tip!
  • It works! I have a Samsung Focus. For those that might be having problems after disconnecting the internet part - remember to turn off your wifi from your phone(prior)! That helped me out.
  • i tried it and it took me a couple ttrys to get the timing right. none the less im updating my htc hd 7 as we speak. good looks on the short cut . best news i had all day.
  • Sweet got the mango update without the hack! Thank you Rogers and Microsoft!!!!! Backing up as we speck :)
  • I just finished the update for Mango on my LG Optimus 7 with Telus Canada and it is A-FREAKIN-MAZING! Wow, I'm lurvin it

  • its a no go for me!!I dont know how you are getting it to work, but more power to you.I even tried while I was not connected to the net and it told me it was still up to date.
  • I stand corrected, I just managed to get the first (7392) update, now I am wondering why I have not yet received this with it being out as long as it has?
  • Well I placed my phone in airplane mode during all of this an as I type the mango is on its way to my phone.I think that some how my computer was using my phones wi-fi as a way to check the net as well, since it went to airplane mode the only thing I have had to do was have perfect timing for killing the wi-fi on my computer.
  • Worked Great on my Samsung Focus.The first time I did it it installed a minor update, but the second time it installed mango.Didnt take that long either.thanks WPCentral :]
  • This worked for me until I tried to get 7403, the update to 7403 seems to have finished, but my update is taking forever. All it says is "Please wait while we determine the amount of disc space needed for the update." Is this part supposed to take so long?
  • So happy and can't believe the wait is over all those sleepless night sleep walking to my computer to check for update. Checking your site every mili sec to check for update. Just updated mine thanks I'm a fan of your site and always be
  • +1Worked for me!! It's best to wait to turn off the wifi/pull out the ethernet cord right before the orange status bar (of "checking for updates") turns red.I have a Samsung Focus (rev 1.3) The update did hang for a few minutes (maybe 10/15 minutes) on Step 8 "Restarting Your Phone". It just now went from the Samsung logo to the Windows Phone logo, so I'm hoping it's still just going through the motions of restarting and I didn't mess up my phone. It's best to just have a little patience and wait it out.I'm so excited! Thanks for this post :) Made my day!Edit: totally works! If your phone hangs while restarting, just be patient. DO NOT UNPLUG IT. It'll work. Trust me.
  • I just had to leave a comment. I seriously did not think it would work, but it sure proved me wrong. haha. Updating as I write this.Try it!!!!+2
  • Please help. I have followed the directions to upgrade my Sprint Arrive. I get the message "Your windows phone is up to date". I have tried for hours to get the update, changing up the timing of disconnect, etc. and following all the tips in the comments!When I disable WiFi and/or Data (on the phone), I get "can't check for updates right now. please try again later" (and is asks me to check for internet connection).I have rebooted both the phone and the computer many times. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
  • i have the same issue also with my arrive
  • I connected my HTC Arrive to my laptop at work and it said there was an update. I started to install it but the update program warned me that I had a guest relationship and I should wait until I was on the first computer I had paired it with (my home computer). So I waited until I got home and plugged it in. Darn Zune said I was up to date. I restarted my computer. Zune still said it was up to date. I had to try your trick a few times before I hit the sweet spot but it finally worked. I'm updating as I type. I can't wait for Mango.
  • Currently installing the 7403 update on my HTC Arrive, and it's doing a backup still. Gonna go for a run while 7720 installs and get ready to have some Mango when I get out of the shower!I had to restart my PC to get it to work, so definitely try that if you're having issues.

  • ANYONE PLEASE HELP???Fail on HTC Trophy...getting error code 801812C1. Tried all the troubleshooting steps and it checks out fine it still doesn't work. Won't install driver. During update, after it restarts the phone for the first time (Step 6 of 10), Windows displays "Found New Hardware - Zune" and tries to install a driver. Never installs properly and then I get the error code. When it's connected I get no errors in device manager. Unfortunately, I'm still running WinXP. Am I screwed?EDIT: Got it to work...rebooted computer + shut off phone and removed battery. After those steps, I got past the error and is now backing up. Of course, this is only the 7392 update, so I have a way to go.
  • Guys do not give up. Took me 15 times to get this right.1. Reboot PC (not everytime, just make sure you've just rebooted).2. Plug in Phone and let Zune launch.3. Click Update and let it tell you that there's no update.4. Click the link below update on the nav.5. Click Update again and count "1,1000. 2,1000" NOW DISCONNECT.6. Wait7. You have new update8. Click update?. ??????10. Profit
  • i giveup. i have been trying and trying to force it to download but it has repetitively failed, i give up. i guess ill just wait a week or two for the notification
  • T-Mobile HD7, got Zune to prompt for first update and I was so excited it finally worked after like 12 tries I hit continue before connecting back to the Internet... trying again...:(
  • Thank you! Worked on my Trophy!
  • Yes! You legends! Thank you so much - held out when the leaked one was released - nearly updated now (does take ages). Would encourage people to reboot if it's being weird - mine spent like 5 minutes on "checking for updates" till I gave up, rebooted and it worked within 5 secs.On a side note, very looking forward to showing it off to my Mum who will no doubt not have it - and she works for Microsoft - ha!

  • Is this only for pc, or can I use the mac software
  • ok DONE! WOOOT! Ok for those who are having a hard time hitting the sweet spot, the key is the status bar. As its cheking the udpate, it goes from left to right. As soon as the status bar hits the right side, thats when you want to take it offline. I found using the hardware button to turn off wifi faster than going through windows and disabling the connection. It works. Try it a few times and it will work. I had to figure out after 20 times what the sweet spot was.Now another thing, make sure wifi is off on the phone. i found that after update 1, it just sat there downloading update, but nothing was downloading for about 15 mins. thats when i noticed my phone's wifi was on. I turned off wifi and zune started downloading the update. Another thing i did was i pulled the sim out of the device while the update ran. I have a HTC HD7 device, BUT i have it unlocked and am running through Simple Mobile. For some reason, i was not able to get any update with sim being in there. Just thought i should share that with you guys. Now i shall go in the corner and be all giddy with my new toy! Good Luck!
  • Now on step 7 of 9 on 7720.68. using unlocked HD7 from Australia :D Just patiently waiting.. and waiting.. and waiting...
  • All finished Took just over an hour to do all of the updates!
  • THIS ACTUALLY WORKS!!! THANK YOU WP CENTRAL!!!OMNIA 7, OPTUS, AUSTRALIA! SAAA HAPPAYYYYYYY
  • Totally worked! HTC Arrive currently updating a pre-mango update. I had to increment my timing before unplugging the internet until I found the sweet spot. It ended up being ~4 seconds for me
  • Been trying over and over for about an hour now, Zune says its up to date even with the internet disconnected...tried restarting the CPU etc, any ideas?
  • Managed to get it to work after 20 or so attempts, on the 3rd time it told me I could update >_>First time it made me update Zune software then it was kind enough to forget about updating my phone, then I managed to forget to reconnect the ethernet cable the second time.My HD7 has apparently decided it is a Schubert though according to driver installation.
  • I already had mango 7720 RTM (leaked version) .... today my zune said 'samsung update available', I installed that, but the message box for official mango 7720 didn't appear! can we 'leaked mango guys' install this official mango release?
  • on step7 40% done. I can't believed it worked. Thank you so much. I have sprint htc arrive. don't get frustrated it took me about 10 tries before it worked. I'm so excited right now.
  • its working, make sure to turn off wifi on the phone and update checking over cellular or it will check for updates that way and fail. Pull ethernet at 2.5 secs. Backing up right now on t-mobile HD7Thanks for the tip.
  • I can confirm this works! It sounded hoakie to me, disconnecting from the internet? But it actually worked (for a colleague) All of the updates downloaded and installed in one pass.MANGO GOODNESS!
  • Here's a method that's faster:Note: Make sure wifi is switched off. I also didn't have a SIM in my phone at the time, but not sure if that makes a difference.1. Bring up a command prompt window.2. Type "ipconfig /release" (no quotes) but DON'T press Enter yet.3. Load up the Zune software and go to Update. It most likely won't find the Mango update.4. In the Zune menu, click an option above or below the Update option, eg. Link5. Click back to Update.6. Count to 3, go back to your command prompt window and hit Enter. This will drop your PC's internet connection.7. Hopefully, Zune will say that it's found an update for your phone. Don't click Update yet.8. Back to command prompt, type "ipconfig /renew" which will bring back your internet connection.9. Back to Zune and click Update.This method worked for me in about 5 seconds. Give it a try.
  • This is definitely the way to go. I was at work this afternoon and got the "pull the cable" trick to work to update my Focus 1.3 to 7392 from 7390. I had to head home to coach soccer practice, so I had to give up on the 7403 update via "pull the cable."I just sat down at home and was ready to smack myself in the forehead. I was like - why am I worried about pulling the network cable, ipconfig release and renew will do the same thing. It's funny how being away from system and network administration for a while causes you to forget the essentials.I'm glad britbloke75 wrote this up. Well done my friend!
  • Thanks britbloke75 I had been trying for a couple of hour. Then stumbled onto your suggestion for shutting down the internet connection and voila it worked like magic. One HD7 down and one HD7 to go. Just registered to tell you thanks.
  • SPRINT HTC ARRIVE!!! YEAH MAN!!! Final Mango Install goin in right now!!! When I came home from work Zune told me I was up to date!!! I forced it and it worked but I forgot to Plug my Ethernet back in. I had to Re Force it. This time it worked!!! I'm so Excited. After this I will do my Wife's SPRINT HTC ARRIVE also.This has Got to Be the Best Phone. I can't wait to use the Update with My ARRIVE.
  • Took a bit of messing around, but I was able to update my HD7 on T-Mobile while in Singapore following the directions above. The count down of 2 one-thousand...1 one -thousand worked well for me.Now time for a tropical mango smoothie!TB
  • Just another reason why wpcentral.com is my favorite site! You guys ROCK! And thank you to Paul Gomez!
  • Yay!I'm finally off of 7390, Helllllloooo Mango!!!Thanks So Much!
  • Has anyone had a problem during the phone backup? Getting error code: 801812dd. Samsung Focus v1.3, software version 7390. I've tried deleting a bunch of apps and music. I have a tb harddrive that is new and virtually empty.
  • Anybody get the 80004005 error? Can't get it to go past .7403 on Samsung Focus 1.3,
  • i have a lg optimus quantum AKA c900b on bell carrieri following the steps and i keep getting the common error messages the messages phone is already up to date and cant find update.can someone help me out
  • Turning Airplane Mode on did it for me, but I'm on AT&T.
  • I did It!I disconnected the ethernet .5 sec after the status bar completed. Samsung Focus Rev 1.3Moscow, Idaho
  • Mango downloading as I type. Worked on the first try. Clicked on the update then I hit the soft key to turn off my WiFi. Worked like a charm. Feeling the need to go to the grocery store and go some mango sorbet!
  • Please Help!Focus rev 1.3, with 7390 and have the latest Zune software.I am not having trouble getting the trick to approve the update, (7392) but always getting an error message while updating!
  • Updated my Trophy! Thanks!
  • Awesome, it worked like a champ. I can't believe it. Mango now on Samsung Focus v1.3. Thank you! FYI -- I had to perform the trick for the 1st 2 updates but the mango update installed automatically. The final step took a long time and gave me a good scare but the phone finally rebooted.
  • Tried this trick with Samsung Focus 1.3. Trick worked and started to install 7392 update, after step 6 of 10 (phone reboot) it didn't move. After 40 minutes of step 6, I hit cancel and restarted my phone. Phone came up just fine. Is 7392 supposed to take forever?
  • Didn't take long for me, Rob. I also have a Focus 1.3. Almost done with 7720 now...
  • Guess I should add, my Samsung Focus 1.3 was on 7390. Still on 7390 after hitting cancel.
  • THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU WPCentral! I have a Samsung Focus v1.3, currently on Step 8 of 9 of 7720 Mango goodness. Ready to get mangoed!!
  • htc hd7 tmobile is mango ready it took six tries before the update kicked in keep trying it is possible =)
  • Has anyone gotten error code 80004005? My update goes thourgh the whole process and gives that error, stuck at 7403. Focus v1.3
  • Got Mangooooooo!! Yesss!
  • Updated! For me, my phone keep using the data network to check for update. (if you are not sure which settings you are on, you can check your phone, or for me, I found out by looking at the number of incoming/outgoing packets). So, when I hit update, all I need to do was to turn off my data network (and WIFI too), and the update works.The good thing is that this method is OS independent. I've successfully use my Mac to force update mango.
  • I created an account just to vouch for this method!After over an hour of trying various methods, I was about to give up, but the method mentioned above is correct. Click update on the zoon software, and after about 2 seconds, disable data networking on your phone and it will work like a charm!
  • updating now on us tmobile dell venue pro! Thanks WPCentral! Love this site!
  • This is yet another thank you thank you thank you for the *trick*!! It worked on my 3rd try! I guess you just have to time the disconnection. I have the HTC Arrive and I guess Sprint did not automagically draw my particular account for the first batch. But WPCentral comes through!!! Time for a Mango-tini!!!!
  • current phone software 7.10 (7720)
  • Sprint HTC ARRIVEI joined the site just to say this trick worked!! I tried about 5 times, and no luck getting the "Update is available" message. I finally rebooted my PC. At the same I took the battery out of my phone and put it back in. I tried the trick three more times, and on the third try, VOILA!!!!I was originally on version 7392. The trick got me updated to version 7.0.7403.0. As soon as that version installed completely, Zune auto checked for another update. Version 7.10.7720.68(MANGO) started immediately downloading.If you get stuck on step 6 of 10 or 6 of 9, just hold the power button down to restart your phone. As soon as it powers back on, Zune will resume.GOOD LUCK GUYS AND GALS!!!!
  • HI, I have a question... Will something really bad happen to my phone if i do that ?? :( im worried.
  • It worked the first time for my LG Quantum! I read the directions thoroughly, got the Zune update, re-read the instructions a couple more times, read all the messages from Zune, and it worked flawlessly.Thanks a bunch!
  • So this will not have any negative affects in the long run?
  • Updated 4 Sprint HTC Arrive phones (one already RTM'd) for my immediate family. My brother updated 4 Sprint Arrive phones for his immediate family. My dad updated his Sprint HTC Arrive as well as my mom's Sprint HTC Arrive.That's 10 HTC Arrive phones featuring Mango goodness, all requiring the forced Mango update. Thank you WPCentral, my one and only source for the insider Windows Phone info. And thank you Paul Gomez for passing this along, thousands of happy new Mango users owe you!
  • I can't imagine it having any effect on future updates. I have a Nexus S 4G, also. I installed an early version of the previous version. This past Friday, I got prompted to install the latest version. Android and WP7 are different, but I thought I would share that with ya.
  • Samsung Focus .. worked like a charm for me ... getting the last update now .. Mango will be done very soon .. didnt take that long for me .. was coming from 7390 .. the backup was the longest part .. had to force the 7392 and the pre mango but main mango update did it all on its own .. thanks WPCentral I love you
  • Actually I lied about the "didnt take that long for me" part ... The "mango" part is taking for FREAKING ever .. the first two before it flew by .. its very close .. im excited!!!
  • I am having some serious issue updating. I've tried on two machines now with the same results. I have 7390 on my Samsung Focus. I've had no trouble starting the update, but when the update gets to the end I get an Error: 80180048 indicating that I shoud reconnect and try again. I have tried on two machines now, one with a new Zune install, over 20 times and I'm frustrated beyond belief. The firmware never updates beyond 7390 even though there is an Update Complete message before the Error Message. Any Ideas? I do have a Focus 1.3.
  • Really weird thing is happening to me:I just getting the 7403 update without any trouble.Then, zune correctly invites me to download the 7720. Problem is when I click the update button zune seems to not be able to reach the server (it say that it looks like i'm not connected to internet: 801811A5). I restarted zune, the computer, my phone. Can't download the **** last step before mango (pretty annonying)Anyone as encountered this error or can help me?
  • woo hoo finally was able to get the forced update to work, just finished updating my Samsung Focus to Mango. Took about an hour and 3 separate updates but finally there. Will be having fun checking out all the new features this phone does now.
  • i did it, i did it!!!! works in Atlanta GA Samsung Focus 1.3yes the trick is the timing, im using my dell laptop Windows 7: yes disable your wireless on the Focus, then go to Control panel , network and internet, then network connections, then just use the able/disable buttons, minimize both windows( zune and control panel)try to put them side by side.. and just follow the steps: i did two updates, 7392 then Mango... im not a computer expert, so if i can do it..u can too. dont give up...oh btw GO BRAVES!!daniel Atlanta GA
  • Go Falcons! Atlanta guy here too, but I'm incapable of putting this on my phone >.
  • I am, and have been getting Error Code: 8018119B (not 80181198)I have tried restarting my computer, my phone, and my router several times.SpecsSprint HTC ArriveModel: HTC T7575OS Version: 7.0.7389.0Firmware Number: 2305.06.12501.651Hardware Number: 0002The update that can't install is 7.0.7392.0Do I need to keep trying to forced update? I can't find any information about what that Error Code means.I could really use any help.Thanks - Zucce
  • WOW!!! I didn't think it would actually work... I've been stuck on version 7008 on my Samsung Focus on AT&T. It feels so good to be on Mango. To those of you that are having troubles... just keep at it, it's rewarding and amazingly sleek.Thanks so much!
  • AT&T Samsung Focus v1.3 Mangoed here as well! So easy, a caveman can do it....
  • i dont know what im doing wrong, but im happy for all of you that made it work. on my desktop, ive never gotten the force thing to work. on my laptop, i got it to work once. did the back up, but then the update to 7390 failed. so i downloaded the windows phone support tools, and they updated my phone to 7390. but then, whenever i connected my phone to my laptop to try updating again, it would BSOD. i have no idea what to do now. :[
  • Works 33% of 7392 yay Mango!!!!!!!
  • AWESOME!!!! My trophy is now updated. Did a voice text to my wife - very cool. I had to do a couple of attempts to get the update, but I got it to load 7403 and then on to 7720 with no problem.
  • HTC Arrive - Currently chugging along with updates after following these directions. Thanks!
  • AWESOME!!!! My trophy is now updated. Did a voice text to my wife - very cool. I had to do a couple of attempts to get the update, but I got it to load 7403 and then on to 7720 with no problem.
  • What is the duration it is taking to upgrade Samsung Focus 1.3 ATT from 7403 to 7720? Mine started 1.5 hours ago and is in reboot status for close to 1 hour. It is switching between Samsung logo and the orange screen with att logo.I have a 32 GB card in the phone. Guess that is affecting the upgrade time.
  • My upgrade did not proceed beyond step 8/9 (Restarting phone). After 2 hours, I cancelled the processes.I feared my phone is bricked. Started the phone in "Connect to pc mode" and it is currently restoring to the previous version. Fingures crossed.If this is success, i will try to upgrade the phone and removing the memory card and an hard reset.
  • Restore is successful. Current version is 7390. I will try the upgrade again in the envening.
  • FINALLY!!!! after 5 hours I was abble to install mango!!! I was getting an error that couldnt update the phone I had to install the walshed support tool, then everything went so smooth.. love my samsung focus!!http://walshie.me/walshed-phone-support-tool-official-fix-to-get-you-bac...
  • I've been trying for 2 hours and still not working! i'm so sad!HTC HD7 US T-MOBILE! :(((( it keeps saying no update available...EDIT: nevermind i finally got it to work!!! all i did was use a different computer, i switched from my laptop and tried on my brother's laptop who had just used his to force the update on his samsung focus and on the first try it worked!! so damn happy right now! i wanna make love to my Mango and make Mango babies!!!
  • Wow... Mango is AMAZING! HUGE improvements, feels great, feels so powerful now. This trick worked beautifully.
  • Ok, so I've tried this MANY times on my T-Mobile North America HTC HD7 with no success. I have followed the directions exactly and still NOTHING. Not sure what could be causing the error. I experimented with just letting the Zune software go without pulling the internet connection, you know, just to see what it would do. This is my result EVERY time... http://s3.amazonaws.com/twitpic/photos/full/409343520.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId...I also tried toggling the phone's wifi and data connections on and off. When the connections are off I get the same result as seen in the above screenshot. When the connections are on I get the "Your phone is up to date. Current phone software version 7.0 (7392)" garbage. Anyone know how to make this work (other than just being patient and waiting on T-Mobile to stop dragging their **** ..)??
  • Having the precise same problem (Rogers, canada, with Samsung Focus, though I'm not sure which version it is. How do I even tell that?)With the phone internet on, it always says "You're up to date", and with the phone internet off, it always says "Can't check for updates right now." It seems not to matter at all if the computer itself is connected.(Error code 80072EE7 is presented underneath). Has anyone been able to solve this? Computer restarts and phone restarts seem to have no effect.Sigh, everyone's comments made it seem so painless!
  • (Samsung Focus v1.3)
  • I think I had the same problem. When I hit update, instead of using my computer to search for an update, my phone was searching for the update. Anything I did to the computer during this time made no difference.You might want to try the solution I posted below. Basically, disable your computer's internet. Disable the phone's cell data, but enable Wifi. During the update check, instead of disconnecting your computer's internet, wait about 4 seconds and disable your phone's wifi.
  • Got it to work finally by disconnecting the computer from the internet and toggling the phone's wifi. Updated my HD7 to Mango ...and now I can't use most of my phone. Sure I can see where I am on a map, and I can change the color of my live tiles, but I can't make a PHONE CALL or send texts. I can't even open my texts by tapping the messaging tile. Same goes for email pictures and contacts. Tried restarting the phone a few times, and no change. Let it cool down a bit, because it felt pretty hot and I thought that it might just be slow due to high temperature, and still no change. Not even sure if temperature is even a factor in the performance of a phone processor, haha! Anyone know if this can be fixed, or will I have to revert back to a previous update and just wait it out?
  • So I just finished doing this for my Mozart and so far everything seems fine... however I noticed I'm not getting any marketplace update notifications for any of the apps that have since been upgraded to mango. For example, I already have evernote on my phone and I know that it is now v2.0 (mangoed) on the marketplace, however my phone doesn't see any need to update the app. As far as I know, all HTC apps were also updated, yet no trigger to update either. I wonder if forcing the update screwed up the marketplace update triggers? Anyone else notice this?
  • this didnt work for me..it keeps saying my phone is up to date:(..Tmobile HTC HD7
  • I got an HTC Arrive. did the trick and its poppin up on the phone that it aint recieving anything while its creating a backup on the 7403 build. then it pops up on the computer saying that error code C101002E registration error. i turn my phone back on after disconnecting it and it runs fine but no mango :( some one help !!!!
  • Try updating your profile & PRL under settings.cellular. Then power cycle both your phone & CPU, plug your phone in, check for update which will show it is already up to date, click anywhaere else on the left menu, check for update again, then almost immediately pull internet plug. This is what finally worked for me after trying everything else under the sun. Good Luck!!!

  • I got the update to become available doing this method. I'm going to wait until tomorrow at least to see if there's any issues but it was pretty easy just pulling the ethernet cable out.Samsung Focus 1.3
  • mango installing right now!Did not have 7 gb for a backup though. Hope it does not cost me :)
  • +1Works great for me! I had to try 15-20 times to get the timing right but I'm now 11% through the install of the last update (7720).
  • Used this trick to update a LG Optimus 7 contracted to Orange Uk and a HTC Mozart that was carrier unlocked. Both updated fine but have noticed a couple of things since doing so, on the LG phone the Orange Select part of the marketplace has vanished (no great loss but still) and on the HTC Mozart the Apps section is the same as it was on NODO ie not organised like it is on on the Mango'd LG Optimus.Small little things that dont make any difference to the experience but things to note anyway :)
  • The trick works fine... But after mangoed my phone doesn't reproduce any sound!!! Help??? HTC hd7 t mobile US... Please???!!!
  • Worked on my HD7 too, but I couldn't use most of my phone after the update. Ended up restoring it to a previous update.***Update***It DID work. Had to do a factory reset after updating to Mango. Now the re-downloading all of my apps fun begins.
  • Update through Zune worked well on my Telstra 9296 HTC HD7 in Sydney, Australia now have 7.10.7720.68 with firmware 2250.21.40501.841. Loving it already.
  • tried the whole night. didnt work :(maybe its because i updated zune before? wich versions do you use?i have an omnia 7, branded and ?locked? with t-mobile germany
  • It should be the latest version of Zune available. It took me a few tries to get it just right. Normally I would click update, and almost less than a second later push the wifi button on my laptop. Then it would continue checking for like 15 seconds and magically it would decide that there was an update. Then you turn BACK ON your wifi and make sure its connected, then click continue. If it worked for most, it should work for all.
  • thank you so much guys. if it wasn't for this hack god knows when mango would've gone through to my phone. keep up the good work.
  • deleted
  • deleted
  • has anyone form the UAE managed to get the update? zune says my phone is uptodate. MS says mango not released in UAE :(
  • Alternative Method (sort of)Using HTC Arrive with 7392 installed on Sprint Network in Los Angeles, CA.Okay, so I tried the ethernet pull at least 50 times with no luck. I had the same problem a lot of others do. When the phone's data is on I get "You're up to date," if the phone's data is off I get "Can't check for updates right now."Here's my alternative solution based on the same principle.1.) Disconnect your computer from the internet (ethernet cable out/wifi turned off)2.) Turn OFF the cellular data on your phone. Turn ON wifi, and leave your phone on this screen (wifi is more consistent than cell signal)3.) Connect your phone to your computer via USB.4.) Turn on Zune software.5.) Under Settings and Phone, go to Update. You should get the message "You're up to date."6.) Select a different menu item below Update7.) Select Update in the menu again, this time at "four-one-thousand" tap to toggle wifi off on your phone. If you get "You're up to date," then you're hitting it too late. If you get "Can't check for updates right now," then you're hitting it too early. The exact timing may vary across tries. It took me about 5.8.) At this point, I got option to update my phone to 7403. Reconnect your computer to the internet before proceeding. If you don't get the update, then rinse and repeat steps 6-7.9.) After the 7403 update is complete, remember to turn your phone wifi back on before checking for the 7720 update. I managed to get the 7720 update without the wifi-toggle trick.Now once you get some mango in there, go finally enjoy that smoothie. Hope this helps some one out there!!(sorry if this is a double post, the browser is kinda buggy tonight for some reason)
  • does the device have to be unlocked?
  • Nope, doesn't have to be unlocked. Mine wasn't.
  • still dont working. what zune version did you use?
  • zune version 4.8.2345.0Are you getting the same error that I described? The update check was going through my phone instead of my computer. It might be a solution specific to my phone/network.
  • I have exactly the same issue. It doesn't matter if my computer network is plugged in. The update uses the phone wifi or it will use my data connection if wifi is not there. If I turn all of them off on the phone it just fails to find an update.Tried restarting and every other possible thing. Any ideas...ATT Focus 1.3, 32GB card...
  • same sh*t here. always the same error or im up to date. tried every combination of network on/off ...im on t-mobile germany and they say that omnia 7 users will have to wait until the mid of october....whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?i just cant wait this longedit:is it possible that my internet connection is too fast? 64mbits and ping average to 8ms
  • FINALLY got mine to update as well using the phone wifi toggle. Thanks for your help.
  • thank you so much, i spent 5 hours on mango day trying to update and i am finally doing it thanks to your comment. Thanks!
  • 2nd time lucky for me following the original instructions - 2nd attempt i leaft a few seconds between starting the update request and killing off the wifi on my PC.Samsung Omnia 7 in the UK with Three Mobile all Mango'd up.Little concerned by the connection failures in Bing and People/Facbook that Im seeing despite being full 3G signal on the top banner etc. Time will tell if its a problem or just bad reception ... fingers crossed.
  • Worked great for my Mozart on Orange UK - thanks!
  • Works on my Mozart on 2nd try. now already on 7720.and i'm using open market phones in Indonesia
  • Worked on my HTC Trophy!!! thanks heaps.. Mango is AMAZING!!! all my android and iPhone friends are jealous Only problem, i cant seem to download the HTC hub (keeps coming up with an error 80070020), nor can i find the HTC attentive phone app in the marketplace... hope this is a marketplace issue and NOT a forced update issue!! is anyone else on Vodafone having similar issues??
  • Currently updating....Using a HTC Mozart - Nigeria.... this is totally....wait for it.....AWESOME
  • Oops, did't mean to reply to that one comment. I was just going to note that I got it to work after a few tries. I completely disconnected my wireless adapter after the little progress bar on the update section finished loading. About 1.5s? Anyway, I'm a Mango WP7 now. :)
  • It did not work with wi-fi, had to switch to cable and after a few tries I am now installing 7403 on my HTC HD7. Thanks :)
  • Worked perfect on Telstra HTC Mozart. Full Mango goodness.
  • Worked easily on my HTC Trophy Vodafone after my second try! THanks so much for this!!! mango is AMAZING!! my android and iPhone friends are jealous.Only thing is that i cant find the HTC attentive phone in the market place (especially for the settings integration). Does anybody have this problem? hopefully this will be fixed soon and has to do with the marketplace and not with the forced update
  • Mango update installed smoothly on my Telstra HTC HD7 in Australia.
  • HOLY **** IT WORKS...GUYS don give up. I thought it doesn't work for me too. I started to count using 1 thousand 2 thousand. If it doesn't work, count to 3 thousand, then 4 thousand and so on. My finally works at 7 thousand. I using a cable connection so I went to type ncpa.cpl in the start textbox which will bring up the network connections. When u click the update, immediately count FIRST, then bring up the network connection menu. Try this for every SEC n quickly disconnect. DON GIVE UP. DO AS I SAY N U WILL GET MANGO UPDATE
  • i have a HTC HD7 unbranded/unlocked. i was going to give after trying almost 10/20/30/40/50.... tries ^^ but then suddenly it appears "there is a new update" Just don't give up if you want to get your mango today.. keep trying.. my lucky number before it succeeded was 4.. be patient guys. :P
  • I'VE BEEN MANGO'D, WOHOO!!!
  • It worked, got the update which is great. However the one thing I was looking forward to having with this update apparently wasnt in it like it was stated it would be. It was reported that the ability to use your own music as a ringtone would be included in this update... if it has been I have yet to figure it out. Loved my phone (HTC Trophy) before and still do but kind of feel disappointed now.
  • I am running a leaked RTM mango, earlier on Got update for HTC apps. but i cant seem to use this method to get to official Mango. keeps taking me to "cant check for update now. please try again later. " screen with error code 80072EFF something about could not connect to the update server. has any body scalled through on an RTM HOW!!!!
  • There's a way to do it, but it's complicated. I think we're running a post on it soon.
  • Okay, for all the Arrive owners out there struggling with this, I finally got it to work after trying all day yesterday and most of the night. There is one new step I did that seemed to do the trick that I have not seen on here yet.Update Profile & PRL under settings-cellular. Then power cycle both the phone and computer being used to update. After that follow the original instructions. Worked for me on the first try. Hope this helps somebody!!!BTW, I already had stalled the 'unofficial' beta 2, and no I am not a developer. I had rolled back to NoDo just to make sure I wouldn't have had any issues updating. Looks like it was all for nothing. Oh well...All that matters is I am rocking official Mango on my Arrive!!!
  • i have been at this like forever, it keeps taking me to "can't check update right now. Please try again later" screen with error code 80072EFF

Then power cycle both the phone and computer being used to update. After that follow the original instructions. Worked for me on the first try. Hope this helps somebody!!!BTW, I already had stalled the 'unofficial' beta 2, and no I am not a developer. I had rolled back to NoDo just to make sure I wouldn't have had any issues updating. Looks like it was all for nothing. Oh well...All that matters is I am rocking official Mango on my Arrive!!!
  • You are a genius @joshredraider! It worked. I renewed PRL and Profile under setting-cellular on my Arrive as you described and BAM, it worked!! I had been working on it all day yesterday with no success. Thanks so much for posting the fix!!!!
  • I am running a leaked RTM mango, earlier on Got update for HTC apps. but i cant seem to use this method to get to official Mango. keeps taking me to "cant check for update now. please try again later. " screen with error code 80072EFF something about could not connect to the update server. has any body scalled through on an RTM HOW!!!!
  • okay i have tried all night and morning..still no luck..guess i will have to wait for a piece of the mango pie:(..HTC HD7-tmobile
  • Success! I just installed (forced) Mango on my Sprint HTC Arrive. It took two trys to be recognized. I had to count to one - three thousand then I pulled my ethernet cable. I already had nodo (7392)so it installed the second update of "7403". It then told me my software was up to date but my phone still said "windows 7". I clicked check for updates again and it then installed "7720" Mango or Windows 7.5. Piece of cake. Thank you for the instructions and making thinks easy. Now to complete the installation I need to go and find a "mango beverage" to enjoy!
  • Anyone know if my HTC Surround being developer unlocked has any bearing on this? I was going to do, but never did, the mango beta update. and since i didnt, my phone has been on 7392 this whole time, but unlocked. and i deleted the whole SDK, I dont remember why i did, but i guess i did. Just wondering if it matters because i have tried this method a million different ways last night and this morning, and nothing.
  • Worked on my Samsung Focus. I'm so happy.
  • My Samsung Focus updated without problems around 2pm yesterday. But, NO Visual Voicemail or wireless tethering that I can find.
  • SUCCESS. Bell Canada HD7
  • Hi everyone,Thanks Paul, et. al, for this shortcut.Unfortunately, I've been trying all day (at least 50 times, but perhaps more), UK time, with no luck. Perhaps there is a factor in the counting/delay before disconnecting the internet connection with broadband speeds and/or distance to microsoft's servers? I am in a rural location in the UK (4MB broadband) and have counted up to 15 seconds with no luck.Another factor: I'm on Mac with windows phone connector for Mac and there is no 'click above or below' on the WP7 connector for Mac, so I've basically had to bypass that step...Config:DVP unlocked/open market02 sim/network unlockedMacbook pro4MB broadband ethernet connection(maybe this is just an unfortunate combination?)Any other suggestions or hints from anyone in similar situation?Thanks to all!
  • Sorry: a few additions:Located in UKBoth data connection and Wifi switched off on DVPNormal 'Check for updates' takes 1 minute 10 seconds (with the ethernet cable left plugged in)
  • The clicking above/below and back to update will restart the search for updates on Windows. You have to achieve the same on the mac. Use cable, I could not make it work with wi-fi. You should measure how long it takes to find there are no updates and then remove the cable a bit sooner and decreasing that time till it says there's an update available. I guess it is doing two checks, one if updates are available and then the second if it can be installed on your phone. Unplugging the cable should most likely interrupt the second one. You could also ask somebody with Windows to let you do it there.
  • I got it to work. Thanks for the tip. Mmmmm....Mango looks good. ;-)
  • Update worked! Took a few attempts though. On Orange in UK using HTC Mozart
  • I installed the HTC RTM on my Verizon Trophy a couple weeks ago (the one the wipes the whole phone). I haven't been prompted for any updates, includeing the HTC Firmware update, and I have been trying the force method in various flavors since yesterday afternoon and I can't get the update to come. I've tried unplugging the network cable, disabling the NIC, releasing the IP address, and having network disconnected but disable WiFi on my phone after anywhere from immediately to 5+ seconds. All I ever get is can't contact update server or that I alread have 7.10 (7768).Can anyone out there give me some advice? Would I be better to revert back to NoDo and then try the force method? If so, where do I get the Verizon OEM image?
  • I'm comfused... Some says 7.10.7720.68 is the RTM not the FINAL release, and some says it is the FINAL... What OS version IS the FINAL release? Not the RTM...
  • My developer phone was updated from beta Mango to exactly the same version officially as my other phone HTC HD7 with this forced method. This is the version MS is rolling out for updates from the original WP7 version. The new phones coming with Mango in October may come with something older or the same version as this.
  • Wow.... whoever figured this out was either very intellegent, or we owe some thanks to whoever leaked that it could be done this way.I just finished the first update, let zune re-install itself and it's updating to Mango now. I'm on an HD7 with T-Mobile in Texas. I couldn't get it to take the install by disconnecting my wireless. It worked after a couple of tries with disconnecting the LAN cable. It took about a 2 thousand and a half count.
  • +1Worked on my HTC 7 Pro after rebooting both computer and phone. Had to disconnect my wlan almost immediately after clicking update, I have a very fast connection so that may also affect it..
  • Worked perfectly after enabling Airplane mode! 2-4 seconds wait before flipping wireless switch off.Unlocked Dell Venue Pro (AWS) on Mobilicity in Canada.You can read all the jazz about Mango, but when you actually use it, you'll really see how excellent it is. This update puts WP7 back in the game!?! ...and then some!
  • +1 for the airplane mode.I tried about 40 times and couldn't get it, but turning on airplane mode did it for me.
  • +1 for Air Plane mode from me as well.I've been trying this work around since yesterday afternoon with no results. Just now I saw this and did it and BAM! Sweet Mango awesomeness is now being delivered.
  • This worked for me, first time I tried it, the update screen actully came up in Zune, but out of too much excitement, I forgot to re-enable the connection, clicked proceede and got a "cannot connect to the internet" message, so had to repeat the steps again! Sod this diet, off to go get me some sweeeeeeeet mango juice!!!
  • This worked and Windows Mango is awesome. I Love it!!!
  • Phone is with Sprint: HTC ArriveThe update was not coming so I used the Force method posted on this forum. Took some time to get it to work, though: On a Dell Latitude 4250 using verizon 4g mifi. I had to throw the wifi hardware switch on the laptop a split second after clicking update a second time. I think this is because the hardware switch is just a shortcut to the software switch. I say this because whenever I use the switch windows does not notify the connection is lost until about three seconds later. I also did the "change" on PRL and Profile, before the update (as suggested by another Arrive model user), though profile gave me an error message. Not sure doing this did anything - instead it seems just turning off the wifi switch much earlier did the trick.One scary moment: Because I got a new 2nd computer (used for the update) Zune updater warned me i was connected as a "Guest" as this is "not my primary computer". It warned that I might lose data like photos, etc but it worked fine with no lossAfter the update, several reboots, I was concerned that Zune showed 7.1 but in the phone it shows Windows Phone is 7.5 under Settings | About.Now off to find out why all my tiles are red and learn the new features!
  • worked absolutely amazing at first try.I now have Mango. Its faster, smoother... totally awesome!Samsung Focus 1.3 At&TThanks so much for the TIP!! :)
  • I am the Primary on my friggin acount with multiple phones and mine is the only friggin one that didnt get update yet...!!!!!!!! WTH
  • Someone told I should not force there is any reasonable reason? is there something bad for forcing it?
  • i am using samsung focus rev 1.3. i was on 7390 than updated to 7392 now on 7403. but now i cant update to 7720 i get c1010009 error. ne solution guys ? just 1 step away from mango. :(
  • Awesome tip. Thank you! The install worked fine though it took a while. Now I'm trying to figure out why all this hype. That "card view" is nothing more than a visual history view. You can pick where to go in the history but that's all. If you play a game and get interrupted (or you accidentally tap one of those useless buttons) when you go back you still have to wait for the game to reload. This is most annoying (and dangerous) while using the GPS function. If you get a call (on your bluetooh headpiece, as a responsible driver) when you hang up you find out that the GPS stopped working. You have to unlock the phone, go back, wait, resume etc. while drivng. BTW, Sprint TeleNav is still not integrated with my contact list.Yes, they fixed some obvious oversights like visible shuffle button, managing music player while locked etc. While fixing these minor details they could have implemented MP3 ring tones, I can't believe my last phone is the first in 15 years where I can't use my own ring tone. Yes, the phone is very responsive and a little friendlier than it used to be. It still has the major shortcomings WP always had. Now with the hyped upgrade behind me there is no hope this phone will ever function the way I want, and I'm stuck with it for 20-some more months. My switch to WP may not have been a smart move after all.
  • Just posted the comments above and saw a new WPCentral article on how to add MP3 ringtones. Cumbersome, but at least possible. Thank you, WPCentral editors! You are really helpful!
  • My HTC HD7 was at 7008. From 7008, I have updated two versions - 7392 & 7403 the way it is said in the post.It automatically started updating 7720 but failed 3 times. I even manually rebooted the phone.The Error Code is 80180048.I tried even WP Support Tool but no luck.Any fix for this?
  • This process worked like a charm. Thank you so much for the information!Phone: Samsung Focus v1.3, AT&T
  • wasn't too clear is this not available for windows mac connector or not? and how do we tell if it is a focus 1.3 or 1.4?
  • http://www.wp7connect.com/2011/09/28/how-to-tell-if-my-samsung-focus-is-...
  • Wow!Worked perfectly great! Here for Germany - free unbranded Samsung Omnia 7After starting the 7403 it just went alone even starting the final mango itself. Although my Internetconnection shut down during the updateprocess and the update stopped with an error - the update would easily resume after restarting the netconnection.Awesome!Great update and great update!Only thing I am really still missing is a weekly view for the calendar - well will be patient!
  • Hello, I have a Samsung Focus 1.3, I've been trying this trick for about an hour and I cannot get it to work. I thought maybe it was me... BUT I dont think it is. everytime I try, I get the message my phone is up to date. 7.0 (7390). I kept trying to get that "sweet spot" between zune seeing that there is an update and it figuring out my imei but I had no luck. So I started thinking that something was wrong, I disconnected my internet COMPLETELY before I even clicked check for update and I STILL get the message that my phone is up to date 7.0 (7390). The only time I got a different error message is when I put my phone in airplane mode, the only message I got was that I needed to be connected to the internet to check for updates (my computer was fully connected the whole time) WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?!
  • I forced my focus to update on AT&T. I had zune open next to my network connection. As soon as I clicked 'update', I immediately (within 1 or 2 seconds) disabled the network connection using right click -> disable. I think I got it on the 3rd try. The 2nd update I got on the first try. The third update installed automatically.
  • I got it! I just had to use a laptop with ethernet connection instead of wifi.
  • The update worked for me on a Samsung Focus 1.3v.but I have one noticible issue and that is i dont have the feature of sorting the apps in alphabetical order?anybody else have that issue?
  • The applications are always sorted in alphabetical order. Are you referring to the feature where it works like contacts. If so, it is only enabled after you have a certain number of applications ... i can't recall the exact number. I have over 50 applications and it is enabled.
  • THIS WORKED!!! PS. I started with bootloader ver. 1.5.1.0
  • Currently updating a HTC Mozart (Orange UK). The first time the PC was disconnected from the net, the update message appeared, but for 7430 ... it skipped an update?Either way, its creating a backup currently :)
  • updated my o2 uk hd7 yesterday and mine skipped the 7392 'update' too :)
  • For those not seeing the update, be patient! I have a Focus on AT&T and it took more than twenty tries. I was so frustrated that I gave up about four different times until I finally saw the message I'd been waiting for. I tried everything mentioned on these comments and what ultimately worked was to disconnect the WiFi as soon as I saw the progress bar as it checked for updates. It's all about the timing and there might be a small lag when disconnecting WiFi, who knows. Hopefully this will give someone hope.
  • Thank you so much, I'm already installing it now. It really works.Muchísimas gracias, lo estoy instalando ya mismo. Realmente funciona :D
  • Followed the instructions several times - no go. On what was going to be my final try, I waited and waited as it looked for updates. Finally decided it wasn't going to work, plugged the internet back in, and VOILA! Suddenly it stated an update was available. My HTC Arrive is updating as we speak. Appreciate the trickery. Knowing Sprint, it would be December before they got around to getting this to their users.
  • Does the force update work with Windows Mac Connector????
  • Worked great! Portugal - HTC HD7 unlocked deviceAnd it also updates firmware from HTC for Mango.I already had 73927403 update was realy quick.7720 took some time, prepare for one hour update or so... step 8 realy takes some time (instaling update).Great job you guys! Thank you!
  • Thanks a ton!!It works!!Here are the snapshots of the update process. Check it out..http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2533487939378.142712.1318926797...
  • First off forget the going to phone settings matters none. Second use a laptop. It is easier to hit a button and shut off wifi. Third easiest way to do it connect your phone to laptop. Make sure ya have the latest update for zune 4.7 installed. Now click on settings. Then click on phone. Then as you click on update shut your wifi off. And as long as you do it the same time. The update will appear. Others said it takes 30 seconds but for mine was instantly. I tried the other way phone settings update forever it did not work. So once again worry about zune on pc not your phone settings. Hope that helps. Take care Ray
  • Tears of joy are welling up in my eyes. The fruity goodness that is Mango is being injected into my HTC Trophy. And big respect to that person who figured out that you have to wait just long enough for the progress bar to go from left to right and then just about half a second longer before you do the Internet Interruptus dance.After about 25 tries and getting ready to place my fate into Verizon's hands (the B**tards), I read that tip, tried it and low and behold...an update was born.It's 11:17 on the east coast of the US of A. I have to go sit in a windowless office again tomorrow. I don't want to go to bed. I want to eat Mango. What to do. what to do. Red Bull? No...yes.. **** Thanks WPCentral and the progress bar dude. Respect.And to everyone who is frustrated cause it just doesn't seem to work...it does. Sooner or later. A hundred tries or more. It will work.Hopefully.
  • Took few tries but totally worked on my HTC Trophy!! Almost finished so excited to use it!!
  • A big thanks to the person or person who discovered this forced update! I finally got my mango updates for my Samsung Focus and my son's LG Quantum devices.
  • Thanks for info, This totally worked. Though I had to try this method 3 times before it worked, but I got it.Thanks again!!!
  • This is so exciting! My Verizon HTC Trophy is almost completely updated! :D I was super excited when my phone notified me of the update, only to find out it only gave me the first update. I had to force update for the second one (which did require me to reboot my computer before it would work); the last update (that I'm currently on) came up automatically after the second. Can't wait to see what Mango is like! Thanks!
  • hey guys, i have got a vodafone australia htc trophy, i have tried the method around 100 times, doesnt seem to be working for me i get the "cant check for updates right now" error, please help. thanks
  • Thank you so much. Worked perfectly. I'm now using Mango.
  • wifi toggle method worked for me Sammy Focus after 30 fails using the wpcentral option.search user 'phaboman' on this page.Very excited and thanks all for the discovery work!
  • Thanks for the brilliant tip. Thanks are also due to all the readers who diligently posted their experiences, thereby strengthening my own resolve to go ahead with it. ATT Samsung Focus 1.3, +32 GB microSD, v3390, NY Tristate area. Surgery performed on a Vista 32 Desktop. Phone Data Connection was on; Phone WiFi was off.I was expecting this to be nightmare; instead it turned out to be a walk in the park. From 3390 to 92, it worked right away (1 attempt (Mississippi 2)). Updates took roughly 25 minutes (I only have about 7 GB of stuff). It didn't matter to me since I was catching up on the NFL Short Cuts. 3392 to 7403 took three attempts. I actually had my son click on the Update "tab" while I pulled the Cat5 off the router (had to be that quick). After that point, no further intervention was required on my part. When I came back to the desk, it was already done! I thought I would have to do the same thing from 7403 to 7720, but dear Zune did it all by itself.I am now in the process of immersing myself in the sweetness of mango. The smoothy celebration shall be done over the weekend.
  • IGNORE THIS PLEASE!
  • For the people using the MAC Connector how did you get it to work, 4 hours and still nothing for me. I am using an un-branded HD7.
  • I am having the same issue, I have Sprint HTC Arrive
  • wow.. you guys are great... I am updating with 7720 i.e called 7.5 Mangooooooooooooooo.After few tries I got the exact timing.Cheers~
  • Holy c**p ... it works:) No idea how you figured this one out, but THANKS :)
  • So I have an ATT Samsung Focus and have been sitting here trying to make this work. I got my phone back in May and have no idea whether it is a v1.3 or v1.4
  • It work OK for me, I got all the updates. But I cannot run anything. I trying to check email, is say loading... and it goes back to menu screen. The same for calendar and picture. I tried to go to settings and delete the email account and recreate it but same thing. I already check version and I have OS version 7.10.7720.68 and it says Software: Windows Phone 7.5. This is on a Samsung Focus model Samsung SGH-i917 with at&t.Anyone having issues like this one?
  • works perfect with my HD7!! ^_^
  • Samsung Focus with at&t.I restored to previous version after upgraded to Mango. Everything worked OK again.Started the process of upgrading to Mango and everything went as it supposed to, but again none of the applications worked. I cannot even see my pictures, lost access or at least display of my contacts, calendar does not run even though I can see my tasks for today in main screen.I am restoring again, and I think wait until it is my time for upgrade.If any one find a solution for something like this, please let me know. Thanks, (I have spent so much time on this, but didn't work for me, thank you any way for the great information)
  • FREAKING FINALLY!I have been trying to get this to work since the Tuesday when this article had two maybe three comments on it, but it was never working. I have an unlocked LG Optimus 7 running on ATT but branded for Vodafone, and I had hacked the mess out of it using the MFG app. I had added custom ringtones, changed the accent colors, developer unlocked it, and probably alot of other stuff I forgot about. So I figured that maybe I messed something up that was preventing me from getting the update. So I hard reset the beast, and viola! First try got the update going!Will update if all goes well :-)UPDATE: All went well. Enjoying this tasty Mango :-D
  • I'm in same position as you. I think I will try hard reset too... BUT then problem. My backup is all nodo... do I want Mango enough to discard everything else?! HmmmmI still never saw if anybody succeeded with this method on MAC? I cant figure it out, because get same "no update available" regardless of whether u are connected to internet, or not (in windows u get the too early error, I hink). Anybody know?
  • Try disabling the data connection and wifi on the phone. If you are still seeing the "no update available message", then it means the check process is finding a connection to the internet somehow.
  • I can vouch for this process!!! My story is exactly like Nashtheflash's! EXACTLY! Did a hard reset, first time i did the trick it worked. Installing as i type :)
  • All good, took a few goes though. Samsung Omnia 7 on Three UK.Cheers!
  • tried at least 7 times. Tried quickly after clicking update, tried two seconds, three seconds, 10 seconds, T-2 seconds where T=first update, etc. No luck! ARGH!4 weeks? WTF?
  • I cannot belive it finally worked! For the Arrive, you need to completely disconnect the your computer from the internet, after that, turn the data off under cellular, then do the steps at the top of this page, but with the wi-fi button on your phone. Wow, i was seriously starting to believe that this was all bogus
  • I have tried at least 100 times over 3 days to force this update on my Arrive. I have used the wireless switch on the front of the computer, I have also turned wi-fi off and used an ethernet cable. In both configurations, I attempted a variety of times to cut of internet, from isntantly to up to three-1000. Nothing works. Could you please explain better what you mean, because frankly I am really frustrated with this forcing trick and this explanation leaves me completely confused.
  • Got a HTC HD7, directions worked good for me. Currently downloading 7.10.7720.68 (aka: Mango) Now just gonna sit back and let it download, then install it! Thanks WP Central!**EDIT** It installed successfully last night! Thanks again!
  • Worked for me, but I had to go through a bit of an odyssey: I'm in the UK and got a Samsung Omnia 7, presumably from Germany, SIM-unlocked but Telekom branded (Telekom logo on startup, all browser searches go to a telekom-branded google page).When I tried to get the Mango update for the first time yesterday, I already was on 7.0.7392.0, no idea if that's normal, last time I had updated my phone before must have been in July. Anyway, so I tried the workaround described in this article, but it wouldn't work via Wifi or patch cable, and I tried often with really different delays. So eventually, I figured that it must be because of the telekom branding.So to see if getting the firmware would change anything, I made a backup and tried manually installing the firmware as described on this page: http://www.mobiletechworld.com/2011/09/27/manually-update-the-samsung-om...However, the final reboot timed out and even after that, the phone wouldn't boot and get stuck at the Samsung Omnia logo. Luckily, I was able to fix it as described here: http://www.winrumors.com/got-a-bricked-samsung-omnia-7-windows-phone-her...Now, interestingly, afterwards the telekom branding wouldn't show up any more (yay!), but the backup wouldn't restore either, and the zune update would only go up as far as 7.0.70something (definitely way below 7392). However, applying the disconnect workaround this time worked after just two or three tries.About the workaround, I found that it helps a lot to look at the packets through Wireshark to see when to disconnect:1. Download and install wireshark2. Upon starting Wireshark, select the network adapter you want to capture the packets on (usually there should be only one, it is not called "Microsoft").2. Start capturing on your network adapter (Ctrl + E)3. Switch to Zune, start the update normally until it says that 4. Switch to Wireshark, stop capturing (Ctrl + E)5. Now this packet list is way too long to be useful, so you need to create a filter to see only the relevant packets. To do that, look for the lines where it says in the "Info" column something like: "HEAD /WM/MicrosoftUpdate/Selfupdate/duident.cab HTTP/1.1" and note down the ip address in the "Destination" column of that line. CAREFUL! It's important NOT to confuse this with "HEAD /WM/MicrosoftUpdate/Redir/duredir.cab HTTP/1.1" This line might pop up and show several different ip addresses, but we really want the IP address from the duident.cab.6. Create a filter by pasting into the "Filter:": "ip.addr == [replace this with the ip address you noted down earlier, including the braces] && http". (Alternatively, do it via the "Analyze" -> "Display Filters..." menu.)7. Click "Apply" to the right of the "Filter:" line.8. Wireshark is set up now.9. Now, each time before clicking "update" in Zune, start capturing in Wireshark with Ctrl + E. Disconnect right after the second (sometimes the third) line starting with "HEAD /WM/MicrosoftUpdate". That worked very reliably for me.
  • Are they the same as the official updates? I mean Microsoft said only 10% of Windows Phone owners will receive the update notification in the first week. Is it the official update? Will it harm my Samsung Focus? (both 7392 and Mango updates)
  • I think this trick works worldwide!!!. I live in Ecuador and my carrier is Movistar, and i was wondering when my carrier was going to release Mango!. I got a HTC Trophy unlocked and rigth now with this trick Zune is installing Mango in my phone!! so the ones who dont live in the US or anywhere. Try guys! Luck to everyone!!!
  • Samsung Omnia 7 on Three network in the UK here.Successfully did it from 7392, and here's how:1) Tried about 50 times with no success.2) Turned off using phone mobile data for checking for updates3) Tried againWorked 5th time with a 2 second delay.Was step 2 necessary? People might say no, but hey it worked.
  • i have tried over a 100 timesss. and it wont work on my HD7sand i have seen no reports of it working on the hd7s help?
  • Success...Dell Venue Pro, t-mobile uk.
  • this is how it worked for me after a lot of trialsI couldn't get any of the previous mentioned to work but I this is what finally did.turn off phone cellular data in settingsturn off computer wlanleave phone wifi "on" and connect to computer, have phone wifi page opengo to update settings and hit update button. 4 seconds turn off phone wifi (I actually counted 1 when I hit the mouse button, then 2-3-4)wait for notification of update and then turn on computer wlan. once connected back to the internet, hit update button on screen
  • HELP! Error at Backup!Samsung Focus Rev 1.3, AT&TWell, the disconnect trick finds my update (7392) however the update keeps canceling after 70% backup. The phone just restarts as it is backing up and zune gives me an error saying something went wrong during the update. This has happened three times now.Any solutions?
  • Works fine for me!HTC Trophy, located in Belgium.
  • Works for me and I am in the UAE, Middle East.I tried both on WinXp and Win7. I could find the update on both, WinXp and Win7 machines. But on win7, it gets stuck on step 6 of 9. On WinXp, I had not no issues with the update.As somebody said here, you have to turn off the internet two seconds before it says "you are upto date". So you have to measure how many seconds it takes to get to "you are upto date" and then switch off internet two secs early on your next try.On WinXp, I had success disconnecting the laptop from the internet(Keep the phone wifi/3g/data switched off) and on Win7 I had success disconnecting the phone wifi (with the laptop already disconnected) while checking for updates.good luck folks.
  • Folks here's something that worked out for me, turn off the internet connection after say half the time that it takes to update and then use the airplane mode trick it worked out for me...Finally Mango Yipee
  • I tried heaps and finally got it to work, wired internet, pulled ethernet cable from router, my time til it said no update was random, so I tried lots of different times to pull the cable. Finally got it working, Mango is so fast. HTC Trophy in NZ.
  • Forcing Zune to do the back door update is all fine and good...But what I want to know is the update that Zune installs on your phone, is it the update made for your phone ie: HTC HD7 or is it a general mango update that’s generic for all phones. From what I have read so far from Microsoft is that every Mango update is specific and custom made for each phone model and make. One phone might have a radio problem where one other phone might have a camera problem and another a life battery problem. So the mango update we force Zune to install might not be the right Mango update for that phone.And by the way the force worked the first time I tried it on my HTC HD7 :-)
  • This question has been answered many times. You will get the update specific for your phone.
  • I have a Verizon HTC Trophy and for some reason can't get past Step 6 in the final 7.10.7720.68 update. I successfully loaded 7.0.7392 and 7.0.7403 without difficulty (this was through forcing the update per the suggestions on the original post).Can someone tell me how long the Step 6: Restart phone step is supposed to take? What might I need to do to get past this step? It's irritating as it seems everyone else just sailed through this update.
  • I thought I would provide a little more context for my issues with loading the Mango update on my Verizon HTC Trophy, in case anyone can spot the trouble. • I’m running a Dell XPS M1330 Laptop computer with Windows Vista (all the Service Packs). • The only apps running are Zune and Windows Task Manager.• Verizon HTC Trophy started with OS Version 7389 prior to any updates• Attempted to load 7.10.7720.68 3 times before with same result – hang up at Step 6• Took battery out, hard reset and now 4th attempt. Start at 2:04 pmSteps 1 through 5 proceeded nominally. Step 6 (Restarting your phone) started at 2:23 pm. At 2:26 pm, the phone re-started again with the showing of the HTC logo, followed by the Verizon Logo, the Windows Phone Logo and then the lock screen.Curiously though, right before the 2nd restart, the phone showed a wire diagram of the phone, the cable, the PC and an arrow pointing toward the computer. I noted that the diagram showed the cable not plugged into the PC, however there were no instructions to do anything, so I didn’t. (Note that the cable was connected to the phone and PC the entire time.)At 2:32, of the three buttons on the Zune app that were grayed out (Back, Next and Cancel) the Cancel button suddenly is enabled. I’m wondering if this is the signal that the process was in trouble and could no longer make any progress on the update?Finally, at 3:24, an hour after the start of Step 6, I hit the Cancel button and pulled the connections. It was troubling that in that hour, there were no indications that the process had either hung up or was working fine. Can anybody spot anything I’m doing wrong? Should Step 6 take an hour or more?? I’ve tried four times now and don’t know what to do to get Mango loaded on my phone! Sorry for the long post.
  • i suppose you are trying this on win7 or winVista, no this is not normal, when you are stuck on step 6, try to manully restart the phone again, if that does not help, try winXp machine and enjoy the juice. step 6 should not take more than 10 mins. the whole upgrade to mango takes less than an hour.
  • The only thing i had wrong with the install was the App HTC Connection thing. it did not give us a data connection. but had to bring it back to the its original state and uninstall it. but never had a hang up or anything it went smooth.
  • Hey, I have a LG Optimus 7 with Telus and I got the update to work.But it's been stuck on "6 of 10: Restarting your phone" for one and a half hours, is that... normal?How long did it take for the whole update to finish?

  • This failed for me. AT&T LG Quantum. Brand new, shipped to me with 7390. Will try again tomorrow.After having used WM for the past 8 years, I have to say WP7 is a functional step backwards, but an asthetic step forwards. Hopefully, I'll get Mango within the next 30 days or this bad boy's going back to Amazon. For your average kid or soccer mom WP7 is just as good as iPhone, but for way less money. WP7's failure to catch on is because of a lack of advertising, flat out.UPDATE: Procedure works after having turned on Airplane Mode.
  • After 3 whole days of trials, I have no success at all, I tried different delays (with and without time measurements)and even tried checking the packets (using Wireshark, mentioned by one of the folks upward) to cut the Internet after/before sending the IEMI info... The closest thing I got was the checking for updates stucked during the process without telling me of new updates (Elese I was told either I'm up to date or "Could't connect to update server" message)Seems I have to wait for weeks to get my Mango :( Sigh!(Please if you have any verified suggestion/method, advice me)Omnia 7 unlocked, nonbranded

  • I don't know how in the heck anyone figured this out. But it seems to be working.
  • Installing 7720 now!!! LG Quantum AT&T
  • Taking forever, but it is working!
  • Phone is re-starting and it's mango colored???? Wonder what that means?
  • Disconnected, (Settings) (About) (More) OS version is 7.10.7720.68 Wellllll, Is't that special. Seriously, who ever figured that out is a genius. Thank's for the help!!!! Now.....Off to bed! It took for ever, probably over an hour!
  • Hey, I worked fine with my HTC HD 7. I already had the 7392 update, and then I followed the process and it worked for me.Good job guys... It's been months that we were waiting for the famous " Mangoooooooo ". Thanks
  • Still no Mango! Can't get force to work and still haven't received notice! LG Quantum in Tennessee
  • Hi all,a big thanks to whoever sussed this out.I'm in the UK and on 02 on an unlocked Orange HTC Mozart.After a couple of attempts using the instructions at the top of the page it worked (I waited just over 1 second before reconnecting)After successfully installing 7403, the screen message said'checking for updates' I gave up on this, as it did nothing for about 25 minutes (I have patience!)so I clicked cancel.When I checked again, the software wouldn't recognize the phone.But after a reboot of the phone and software, it showed up again.I was about to do the force again, but it showed 'update available'.After a good hour I eventually got 7720 Mango!!!excellent,thanks guys!
  • Im sure after this long, Microsoft would have already started to stop this from happening... I either get the internet not working error or your phone is up to date. I had 10 moments of a long loading thinking it was gonna work, but ended up being one of the to things I just said... I clicked and disconnected immediately, tried at 1sec,2sec,3sec,4,5, when it took 28 seconds to tell me im up to date, i tried at 20,21,22,23,24,25... I did all the suggestions basically mentioned through out the comments with my phone and ways to do it. Nothing. This really sucks. Wish someone made a video about it to show everything and how its done. But I still think its slowly gonna be fixed. I have done this for 2 hours last night and im continuing as I type, started from 8:45am. My phone is a Omnia 7 with T-Mobile Germany branding but its unlocked and in Australia! Might actually be an issue after all!Update: Gave up haha. waiting on a video or something better to detail me on.
  • Stick at it! I just managed it so no stop from Microsoft. I also tried all combinations of everything above before I finally got it.
  • its now just constantly saying the internet connection error no matter what when trying to disconnect, I made sure my internet wasnt being a **** but when I let it check, phone up to date. so i averagely counted how long it took to say phone up to date... it was 7,5,7,7,7,7,5,5,5,4,5,5,7,7. So I tried again at immediate, 1,2,3,4,5,6 but as I got closer to either 5 or 7, it said phone up to date, anything else it either pauses for 40sec and/or says the internet error where it cant connect btw for all of you. I will tell you how Im doing it.Im using WiFi on my pc with a USB adapter, I tried pulling it out, disabling, ipconfig/release. I tried doing it as i click update and counted while the loading bar was going, as soon as it hit the end and counted as soon as it hit. didnt make a difference. thinking about installing zune on laptop so I can use a ethernet cord. Would anybody agree it might be better to try a ethernet cord? I WANT MY MANGO!!!! T_T Update:At this point, I might not be that great in IT stuff, but I really think something else is at play. I cant get it to work no matter what I tried. It seems as if people who done it actually got to update haha. I dunno I have counted 890 attempts... yep... 890 in a total of 9 hours. Obviously its not gonna be working for me. Now the waiting game. Although I still think having a different countries branded phone in another country unlocked to use my countries network is really playing a part in my issue in getting it to work. And im thinking of finding out how long must i wait to find out if something is wrong and I cant get update. good luck other peoples :(
