Microsoft’s first Windows Phone 7 update bricks some Samsung Omnia 7 handsets
As reported yesterday, Microsoft has started pushing its first software update to Windows Phone 7 devices – a minor update that’s being released only “to improve the software update process itself” in preparation of future (more important) updates.
Usually, minor updates are hassle-free, but it looks like that’s not the case for some Samsung Omnia 7 users.
According to Zdnet, Microsoft is “aware of this issue and is looking into these reports.”
Until Microsoft issues an official statement on this, the::unwired has a list of things that you can do to recover your recently-updated WP7 handset. Good luck with that.
