HTC 7 Mozart and Samsung Omnia 7 Mango builds leak

As we inch closer to the public rollout of Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango), more and more individuals are getting their hands on the Mango builds for each of the devices on the market. Typically when this happens, leaks of builds tend to surface, and that is the case today.

The HTC 7 Mozart and Samsung Omnia 7 have both had Mango builds leaked. The Mozart leak is of build 7720.68, according to XDA and the Omnia 7 is a build from August and is reportedly just a minor update over previous iterations. Mobiletechworld states that it “may not be worth the effort (remember this is just an engineering firmware with the RTM OS code that we already have). The firmware version seems to be a tiny jump from the KC1 firmware (2424.11.3.1 vs 2424.11.8.2) and the Radio went from 2424.11.2.2 to 2424.11.7.2.”

A user on the XDA forums is stating that the Mozart leak is the final version of Mango. We can not confirm at this time if this file is indeed the final build of Mango to be released for public consumption.

It should be noted that using leaked firmware can potentially brick your hardware and/or void your warranty. If you do load the software, it is done at your own risk and comes with no official support channels.

These are different builds are they not? This is closer to a retail Mozart build complete with all updated HTC drivers and modifications, and not just a clean, manufacturer independent Microsoft build.

Yup seems so, this build has higher firmware and bootloader and radio software versions, cant be bothered to mess again because It'll wipe my phone and I dont have any problems atm

yes the RTM leaked ages ago, these are the OEM builds starting to come out now. Eg mango optimised for device specific handsets. Its newsworthy because they are popular WP7 handsets but also because it signifies that we can likely expect an official launch quite soon or at the least leaked builds for more handsets.

Just to give you guys a heads up who have a Omnia 7, this is far from a pointless upgrade IMO.. It has the following that works now.

1) Updated camera driver: Touch-focus now works (instead of simply touch-to-capture), Bing Vision no longer looses focus and correctly adjusts the white balance in low light environments. Both of those are a big deal for me, I was thinking our phone would only have touch to capture but no it does have the hardware to make it touch to focus so thats cool... also the bing vision fixed is a lot better.. I was getting problems just getting text from a book due to lighting issues.

2) Updated Motion Sensors driver: Digital Compass is now faster and more accurate. The accelerator is also faster when switching orientation in Internet Explorer.

3) Updated Radio software: WiFi and Cellular data transfers appear to be faster (applications downloads are faster as are page loading times in IE9)

4) The hidden WiFi Network feature is now available.

5) Bing Music is now faster and more accurate (updated mic driver + radio update I guess)

6) Option to select 2G or 3G data connection. Not really new but nice to have it back (thanks for the reminder in the comments)
