Microsoft to Resume Pre-NoDo Update on Samsung Phones


Couple of days ago, when Microsoft sent out a Pre-NoDo update for its Windows Phone 7 handsets, Samsung devices faced a lot of problems  including  inability to backup, devices crashed & burned during  the update process and few were even un-bootable. Microsoft ultimately had to halt the update process on Samsung devices.

Today, Microsoft will resume the update process on Samsung devices and hopefully this time Microsoft and Samsung have got it right. In an update from WindowsTeamBlog says -:

Starting today, we plan to resume rolling out the February update to Samsung phones. Meanwhile, we’re continuing to dispatch the update to other Windows Phone models. As has been the case, the software patch is being sent out on a rolling schedule. You’ll see a message on your phone when it’s available.

During the past week the engineering team has pinpointed and fixed problems that were preventing a small percentage of Windows Phones from installing the February software patch.   We apologize again for the delay and continue looking for ways to improve the update process.

The update process remains the same, although it is now expected to have plenty of disk space on your PC before the update. The Pre-NoDo update didn’t affect any other Windows Phone 7 Smartphones besides that of Samsung and with today’s update hopefully we won’t face any further issues and give a way to the much exciting NoDo update.

If you do not install Pre-NoDo update on your device right away, it will be installed coupled with NoDo update which will be adding major features like ability to Copy-Paste etc.. If you plan to update your Samsung Windows Phone 7 device today, do let us know if the process was smooth as promised.
