For Omnia 7 issues regarding the NoDo update, Microsoft has this to say:
So a fix is in the works but you'll still have to stand by for a little while.
The other problem that has popped up is in regards to the Samsung Focus--though it seems much more rare. As it turns out, there are two hardware versions: REV1.3 and REV1.4. The latter, v1.4 has different memory modules on board (evidently due to high demand, Samsung had to switch components) and it's causing a minor conflict with the update:
So that too, is in the works.
Finally, Microsoft talks about the 7392 update, which we reported earlier today. They stand by the fact that there's nothing to new to see here except for the SSL security updates. This is contra Chris Walsh who insists that there are a bunch of files on board that are post-7390. These files could represent some minor bug fixes or maybe they're just updated builds for whatever reason.
Of more interest is the fact that carriers can block this update, meaning some of us won't get the update till some off-in-the-future update: "If you’ve already installed the March update, you’ll receive 7392 as a standalone download or bundled with a future update."
The good news to take away though is Microsoft is successfully pushing out another update, seemingly on time too. Perhaps it's a sign of things to come?

Finally at least some information for us poor 1.4 owners!
Why does this always happen to me?! I always buy the phone that has the problems... Palm Pre, no upgrade path to new webOS, Samsung Galaxy S, ridiculous file system, Samsung Omnia 7, NoDo update problems... I should just give up and switch to iPhone... at least they mostly work, or all fail to work in the same way...!
Got an omnia 7 on t mobile and so thats me waiting even longer for any update. Why is jailbreaking seeming like a better and better itea every day
"The latter, v1.4 has different memory modules on board (evidently due to high demand, Samsung had to switch components) and it's causing a minor conflict with the update ..."You got that backwards: a minor hardware change caused a major WP7 update failure, at least for those effected. Manufacturers make changes like that all the time during the course of a model's production run. It's an unfortunate fact that Microsoft still hasn't proven it can pull off an update of this type in the multi-source environment it's chosen to inhabit."Of more interest is the fact that carriers can block this update, meaning some of us won't get the update till some off-in-the-future update ..."You're right there; very interesting indeed. If I purchase a WP7 device today, what guarantee do I have that my carrier will pass along every critical path update that Microsoft provides? In the WM world it was more often the case carriers would require a new purchase and a contract extension to get a WM update. It's a policy that help fuel to popularity of sites like XDA-Developers. Since the NoDo update has been rolling out since FEBRUARY, I wonder if I'm seeing a return of the WM days.I certainly hope what I've seen so far when it comes to WP7 updates aren't a sign of things to come...
