Windows Phone Radio, Microsoft's official Windows Phone 7 podcast, returns with hosts Brian Seitz and Matt Akers to discuss the weekly update blog posts by Eric Hatula (NoDo) and later joined by Brandon Watson to talk about the ChevronWP7.updater.
Firstly, let's cover what is really meant when updates are in the "testing" stage over on Where's my update?...
Now comes Brandon and the whole discussion about the potential issues surrounding the ChevronWP7.updater tool that users have been using to force-update their devices with NoDo.
Brandon also mentions they are going to produce material in the near future that puts into detail how the tool is putting phones into an un-updatable state. For the time being, the team is attempting to work out how to reverse the problem without having users resort to having their devices flashed back to the original ROM by their carriers. He stated that this is a real concern and is definitely not FUD.
It seems the continued plea is to not update your phone prematurely and be patient as NoDo will come - easy for some to say. I wonder what'll come first, the solution from Microsoft for the people who have used the tool or the NoDo update for those who haven't (and are on the same network)?
