Microsoft has been offering me a NoDo update for a couple of weeks. Until yesterday. Today, something has changed:
No, I have not installed NoDo yet. 🙂 Is this a new chapter in the WP7 update soap opera?
Let’s try to be positive: Perhaps a new – post-NoDo – update is prepared for the MIX time?
My Zune welcomed me by this wonderful screen today:
Yes, this is the famous NoDo update! In fact, it’s available for all unbranded phones since yesterday. But I’m going to wait for a while – for two reasons:
- My unpleasant experience with the Pre-NoDo update. I guess it would be better not to hurry up and let others to be early adopters.
- NoDo blocks ChevronWP7 phone unlocker, which I use for my spare time development, as I live outside of the official developer countries walled garden. After NoDo, I will go to Yalla Apps as they are able to officially unlock phones in the outside world. It will cost something (no problem) and probably take a while (which is a small problem).
You can read interesting Rafael Rivera’s notes about the update proces.
