Update On The Windows Phone 7 Update Update

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Feb 24, 2011.

  1. If you remember, Microsoft pushed out an update for Windows Phone 7
    recently. This wasn’t actually the long-anticipated Windows Phone 7 update
    as such, but an update to the updating process to ensure that the actual
    update would go more smoothly.

    Well, guess what: this update update has gone far from smoothly, with
    Microsoft now admitting that 10% of Windows Phone 7 users have failed in
    trying to apply this update update
    <http://www.zdnet.com/blog/hardware/10-percent-of-windows-phone-7-update-installations-failed/11605>.
    Some have even managed to brick their phones.

    So now we have to wait for the update update update to fix the update
    update. Then at some point after successfully applying the updated update
    update, users should be able to apply the update that the update update was
    supposed to help with.

    How are the Android updates coming along? How many of them are
    upgradable to the latest version.

    And don't come up with that custom ROM crap, you lose all the Google
    branded applications that way
