Chevron have posted on their Twitter account that a fix from Chris Walsh is being validated by Microsoft to see to the problems that have arisen from unofficially updating handsets to NoDo.
We recently looked at how the Chevronwp7.updater has caused issues (opens in new tab) for many users attempting to receive the May security update (opens in new tab), hopefully once this fix is approved by the Windows Phone team, we should see some positive results without having to re-flash devices.
In addition, there has been a new article posted on the Windows Phone developer blog. Brandon Watson explains why the unofficial tool may have a negative impact on Windows Phones by putting them in a changed state, as opposed to an updated state (if looking at the devices as state machines).
So, good news for you guys who are experiencing the 80180048 error when attempting to receive the May security update. It should be noted that the Chevron team are working on this fix and are taking responsibility off their own backs, which deserves much appraisal. The Windows Phone team are busy working on Mango among other workings which the unsupported tool is not apart of.

Well, my unofficially updated Surround updated to the official version just fine, not a hitch.
Not all phones are created equal it seems. Some don't have any problems, some (samsungs) keep having problems. There have been a enough people posting with that update error though that a fix needed to be made. I find it kinda funny how some being able to update past 7390 means everything MS is saying must be BS yet now we have a new update and people are having problems. This should put that idea to rest now.
I'm still waiting to get Zune and Marketplace functionality back.
I have a UK T-Mobile Samsung Omnia 7 which I updated to NoDo with Chevron.I don't see any new update at all since then (!) - not sure what is going on with my phone :-(
