Windows Phone 7 NoDo Update is live now!

Focus owners please report here if you get the update. You don't have to wait for the notification. Connect your phone to Zune software and check the update from inside Zune.

Did you plug the phone into the Zune software and check there?

Connect your phone to Zune desktop and if you're not prompted with an update notice, go to settings>phone and click on update

Thats what I have been doing...still nothing.  Thought I read somewhere it was a partial rollout, maybe it just hasn't hit my device yet.

For those who are still on the fence or already updated through other means, the official update also comes with newer firmware. You will have to re-brand your phone if you unbranded in order to get NoDo earlier in order to see the Samsung updates.

This is true, not really sure what the "Samsung" updates are other then WISPr & support for the AT&T Address Book but I have to say it took much longer to install the AT&T NoDO update W/Samsung updates then it did for the unbranding version I installed last month..

  • Capacitive buttons are temporarily disabled to prevent accidental "clicks": before the update, if you had an app open and you put your finger on the screen and dragged it down to the capacitive button area, you'd activate those buttons. Now you do not. This is huge for gaming on the Focus, to say the least.
  • Camera auto defaults to "anti-shake": this was a no brainer, the Focus has an anti-shake setting on it, so why would you not want that enabled by default? Evidently, Samsung saw the light on this and now it's on automatically, resulting we think in a higher percentage of steady shots

Apart from those features, the phone firmware version is bumpped up and we could assume some much needed bug fixes in Samsung part as well (Bluetooth fix? microSD fix?).

Any idea why this update would cause my Focus to brick?  It got to "Rebooting Phone" and it never powered back up again.  I've tried switching out the battery  and then back in but still no response.  Doesn't acknowledge it being plugged into the outlet either.  The battery was full power when I performed the update so it can't be the battery...

Try to hard reset. Three button method and then update.

 

1. Press and hold the Camera, Volume Down, and Power buttons simultaneously.

2. Release Power when the phone vibrates, but continue to hold down Camera and Volume Down.

3. Release Camera and Volume Down when the Format prompt is displayed on screen.

4. Press WP7 Windows button.

5. Press WP7 Windows button again to confirm the hard reset.

Sadly, that did not work.  No response from the unit whatsoever

The MicroSD fix would be great, AT&T nor Samsung has mentioned it yet concerning the new update but boy it would be nice if they addressed it... I see AT&T is selling "Windows Approved" 8Gb Sandisk cards now but honestly $32 for a 8gig card seems a bit overpriced.. Hopefully one of the two will shed some light on this soon, I've been holding off getting a sdcard until I see some concrete news that it is or has been addressed, I just keep selective of how much space I use up (music and pics) until we hear something..

Ok, I'll stop my whining now. I installed the February and March (NoDo) updates this morning. I needed the Microsoft Support Tool to get through the February one but NoDo went smooth as silk!

Got prompted for the update on my Samsung Focus today. Can't get it to install from my XP or Windows 7 boxes. On Windows 7 I get an error from Zune, saying it needs to download more files, but never goes any further. I re-installed Zune 4.7 to no avail.

 

To continue, Zune needs to download a set of files to your computer. This might take awhile. Installation will restart when the download is complete. (Nothing happens after this).

 

 

On XP I get an error that the package isn't signed. Google (and bing 🙂 ) yeilds 0 results on the error or error code.

 

The update package isn't signed.

Error Code: 80188223

 

Please help!
