User hd2leo_fusion post in another thread...
This download contains four files that you will need to update your retail Windows Phone device to the 'Mango' Beta 2 pre-release build.

MangoB2-ZuneClient.zip - ZIP file that contains the install for the pre-release Zune Client 4.8, required to update your Windows Phone retail device and to connect to your device from the Windows Phone SDK tools.
MangoB2-UpdateWP.zip - ZIP that contains the install program(s) that will install updatewp.exe into your Zune client, allowing you to update your Windows Phone to point to the test servers
MangoB2-DevRetailUpdate.zip - Tool that automates the backup and update process so that your retail phone can receive ‘Mango'
Update Instructions - Mango Beta 2 for WPDevs.pdf - Instructions to walk you through the update process. 15 minutes here can save you 4 weeks without a phone.
Finally, one last reminder about reading the instrctions:

Please read the instructions document fully and carefully before you update your retail device. Not properly following these instructions can place your personal phone in an unusable state. Microsoft is unable to assist developers who ‘bricked’ their phone because an instruction step was skimmed or skipped.
Hi all

Good luck with this. Considering [registered] developers are only allowed to install Mango on a single device I somehow doubt you'll be able to install it as a non-dev just by patching your Zune install.

I'll try to search them, too. But if I found them I'll post them here.
Edit: Google doesn't help =/ Seems like nobody has uploaded them, yet.

I did not say that it will work 100% ...The files are just to patch the zune and send it to find the update in the MS servers ...
Dont forget that register devs are limited to unlock only 1 device ...and all of them have more than one unlocked...
Maybe this will work, for everyone ... maybe ...else why are those files hiden to general public ???

So far so good, installed the "pre-mango" update, no hicups yet.

The only confirmation it has so far is to confirm you have a dev unlocked phone. No dev unlock phone, no update.

Sounds very good :) Thanks!
Edit: He said that he's not going to share the files. We should accept that :)

Please, share with us the files! :)
Read a few posts up. They aren't my files to share, I'm sure they'll be leaked out eventually, but I'm not going to screw a friend over who gave me them if there is some sort of hidden tracking.

I'll report the progress, but no files.


P.S. seems this update is going to take at least an hour. I'll post back when it finishes. Also, from start to where I am now, it's been pretty painless. And NO i don't have the Beta 2 tools installed, so it apparently works without them, despite what the document says.

The documents say that in order to DEPLOY anything on your Mango updated device you need the B2 SDK :)
I planned on having them installed eitherway, just that the excitement overcame my ability to remember longer than 20 seconds to install them before kicking off the update lol.

So far still in updating mode... Been about 30 minutes i think, document says 70.
