Default Windows Phone Updates, like right now......

Disclaimer, use this at your own risk, if this voids your warranty I’m not being held responsible, blah blah all that junk.

Well, first, thanks go out for Microsoft for releasing a support tool for Windows Phone yesterday. Inside that tool, were unreal hidden gems.

Basically they’ve created a managed wrapper over the whole update process for us, rather nice of them.

So I flashed my HTC Mozart back to RTM (7004) via a ROM update HTC ship and whipped up a little application to flash pre-NoDo (7008), NoDo (7355), NoDo update 1 (7389) & NoDo update 2 (7390) all in a single process. No I don’t care which carrier you are on, which phone you have, it’ll just update your phone accordingly.

We really have to commend Microsoft here for being able to split up the OS updates into differential packs, which saves users downloading 200+ MB updates, unlike the IFruit updates.

All you need to do is run the ChevronWP7.Updater.exe console app and follow the prompts.

Make sure you select the RIGHT language for your device. To double check what your default language is, go to Settings > Keyboard and if your selected language is displayed in the Console app, you’re good to select it. If it isn’t in the list, DON’T flash it just yet.

Now, download the following files.

x86 Operating System (32 bit)

Windows Phone Support Tools
http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...rtTool-x86.msi
ChevronWP7.Updater
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=G1OEGML1

x64 Operating System (64 bit)

Windows Phone Support Tools
http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...Tool-amd64.msi

ChevronWP7.Updater
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=40MA6F02

Once you’ve installed the support tools and extracted the ChevronWP7.Updater.zip to the desktop, plug your phone in and wait 30 seconds.

Now start ChevronWP7.Updater.exe (this should kill Zune) and follow the prompts.

If you’re updating from Version 7004, you need to run the Updater TWICE, this needs the preUpdate before we can flash NoDo.

Again, if your language isn’t in the Chevron updater, DON’T attempt to update your phone. Some of the applications won’t work otherwise.

This “might” work for HD2 owners, haven’t tried it out just yet. If it does, report below and tell me .

There is NO revert process, again, flash at your own risk.


I flashed my Samsung Omnia 7 works fine

Also not working for me- Samsung Focus on AT&T. Program runs, reboots phone, seems to update, but on examination I'm still at 7004.

Sadly I should've resisted. I did this on my AT&T Samsung Focus, everything is great except I have no marketplace and no Zune functionality..

In the future, just link directly to my Blog, direct linking to the installers doesn't enable me to update them if there is an issue.
