Microsoft pushes out update to WP7 devices, it isnt 'Nodo'

There has been a lot of talk about the 'NoDo' update that Microsoft is preparing to push out to WP7 devices in the coming days, including the fact that it is now being installed on new WP7 devices. 

Microsoft is now pushing out an infrastructure update to WP7 devices and users should soon begin to see the update on their devices. According to the Windows Phone Blog, Microsoft states:

Starting today, some of you might see something new on your Windows Phone: A message announcing that a software update is available. Woo hoo! Now, before you get too excited, let me explain: This isn’t the update you’ve probably been reading about or perhaps waiting for, the one with copy and paste (but that’s coming soon)

This update "is designed to improve the software update process itself," which translates to making updating your phone to the 'NoDo' an easier process. Microsoft said that you will need to connect it the Zune software for your PC or the Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac.  

Not everyone will be getting the update initially but it will be rolled out to all users over the coming days.

Seems Samsung wont/havent released the newer firmware update for Omnia 7 that's been doing the rounds on the internet - I was hoping that they'd release it officially with support prior to the new MS WP7 OS updates...Samsung are cack...Microsoft are not to blame/ anything to do with this update I am talking about here. Pull your finger out Samsung!!

I'm in UK.

No idea mate sorry - though I recall reading that the minor update that happened to Zune in the last 10 days was issued via windows update, though I can't remember.

I just plugged my phone into pc, Zune player loaded, synced stuff I'd done over weekend (photos etc) then I disconnected it, at which time the update message appeared.

Another impatient Omnia 7 user here, just checked and force reboot and done wvwrything I can think of to try to get ti to check - nothing, its daft really as this update will give me nothing important (from a user standpoint), but I really really want it!

So 7004:7008 is not the NoDo update ?

Oh good, that was actually a question of mine. I'm glad they back everything up as well.

UPdate took me around 30-35mins to finish, the longest part of it was the backup of the phone, so that depends on how much stuff you have on it I guess if it does a full backup of apps/mp3/vides/games etc etc.

This is great news. With them updating the update process, they must be getting really close to releasing the update for the phone. I hope this means that Verizon will be getting WP7 now. I've been trying to wait patiently, but the lack of news is driving me nuts. A couple of friends that were waiting went and got iPhones recently because they couldn't wait any longer... You would think Microsoft would want to be more vocal about this release.

Anyone on Rogers receive the update yet? I hope Rogers doesn't slow down the update cycle.

Update: I just plugged my phone into computer and received notification of the update for my Focus.
Download is small (maybe 2 seconds with 100Mbit) and install is underway! Woot!

Received my .7008 update today for my LG Optimus 7 on Vodafone UK. Required Zune update before loading but both updates all went without a hitch. Hopefully the NoDo update will be following shortly
