decided to make a tut on how to update to mango for the first timers out there that have no clue on how to do it! YOURE WELCOME!
this is a straight forward step by step tut
i take no responsibilities if u brick and take no credit for it
all credit do to all that make this happened
also do research before you do anything, i always do it before any upgrade or mod to any device being cellphone or any kind of electronics THE SEARCH BUTTON IS JUST LIKE GOOGLE IT WILL BE YOURE BEST FRIEND, and after a lot of searching then post youre questions so the comunity can help!

the back up is created at
C:\Users\YOURE USER NAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Phone Update
and it will be a folder with a large sequence of alfa numeric name
i advice to copy this to other location because when you upgrade or downgrade the zune software it delets this file
also in this tread is more indeepth on wp7 backup
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1103011
if you cant see appdata folder try this:

1) Open Windows Explorer (Start\All Programs\ Accessories)

2) In Windows Explorer go to Computer\"driveletter"\users\"username"

3) With "username" highlighted, click "Organize" (top left of Windows Explorer window) and then select "Folder and Search Options"

4) Check the "Show All Folders" box in the General tab

5) Go to the "View" tab

6) Click the "Show hidden files, folders, and drives" radio button

if you already updated or downgraded zune software sorry but you will have to reflash youre wp7 with a stock or unbranded rom and start over, i did cause i wanted to have mango unlocked to load sideapps

to restore last state you have to download windows 7 backup tool 1.6 or 1.5,
1.5 was the only one that worked for me
to do the backup just open app click restore and make sure youre backup file is in
C:\Users\YOURE USER NAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Phone Update directory

you must have zune software prior version 4.8 for this to work with provision.exe so it will do a full backup, if you use zune 4.8 it wont do a full backup. YOU BEEN WARNED

1.download and unpack the files www.mediafire.com/?5zclb0ou8zdll

2.install file WPSupportTool-x86.msi for 32 bit or WPSupportTool-amd64.msi for 64 bit

3.run Provision.exe, it will make backup of youre phone and it will run all files to prepare youre phone for mango update

4.when it finishes close provision app and run StartZuneLocal.exe to install zune 4.8, after it finishes connect phone and follow instructions and all done welcome to MANGO!

if theres an error please post it so i can edit the post for future members

saludos a todos desde puerto rico!

Awesome! Giving this a try (fingers crossed).

Is there a difference between part 1 and part 2? I'm going with 1 first to see if there is any difference.

Worked perfectly, everything so far seems to be working. Only thing I've found not to work is to do with my marketplace Orange selects. Have to search for my free apps this month. Also the HTC apps in marketplace throws up the same error. But good work made the process so much easier.

i've read that zune 4.7 doesn't work with mango, it has to be 4.8.

On-topic:
i've updated to mango with these files and its working like a charm, it feels my trophy is somehow more complete, it works faster, smoother, and it's all the little things that are so cool.
For example the people tile, with nodo it just displayed 9 pictures at the most in the tile, so they were all small pictures, now with mango it sometimes chooses random pics and makes them bigger so the pictures has the size of 4 small pictures.

the way the letters slide away in the people app and in the apps menu.

the icons in text messages, the somewhat different color of send and received messages.

these are the cosmetic changes i've noticed so far, but they are all pretty neat :)

Neat indeed!
Ie9 let's you see recent history (don't think it was there before Mango)
My phone now let me see Facebook events while on the locked screen (don't think it was there before either)

I had to drop back down to 4.7 for the provision to backup and install the files it needed. I followed the directions from there and it work like a charm. Do they all say not for resale when you boot up?? I also wanted to know if its to buggy can I drop back to the nodo. Now I have to play with the custom ringtones.Thanks for making it so easy.

Going to give this a bash over the weekend

Quick question, did you get your marketplace problems sorted?

Cheers

    Downloadintruder:
    1. Yes, this is the beta ROM, directly from the Microsoft servers
    2. You needs more than 40 apps to get the alpha-jump list
    3. Yes, you will need to restore to your nodo backup to get the official mango release.
    4. You should be prompted for the beta updates a you are now in the beta lane. Just plug in to Zune and the subsequent beta updates should install. This is why you'll need to restore back to nodo to get the official update. Until then, your phone is in the beta lane and won't receive public release updates

    Use winrar and you wont have any problems

    Just unzip from part 1 and it will extract both, if you do part 2 its doing both files, that's why its asking to replace either way you already have it extract correctly if is asking to overwrite
