Encouraging Mango update signs for HTC HD7
I woke up this morning to a message on my phone that there is an update available.
This is hugely exciting, because I want the new “Mango” update that Microsoft released to manufacturing a week or two ago.
Something tells me that this probably isn’t Mango itself, but some pre-Mango update required by the hardware manufacturer to address driver requirements of the new version, which unlocks access to things like the compass and camera. Using devices in modes they previously weren’t operating in tends to reveal bugs in drivers, and so I am guessing that every phone will likely need a pre-Mango update to get its drivers and underlying SDKs / APIs into shape.
Here’s the image of the update trying to apply:
So, did any of you readers get a nice “gift” on your phone this morning? Is it the full Mango, or just a pre-Mango fix set?
Sadly, my update failed, with an error 0x801812c1, but a handy search on the Interwebs directed me to this KB article, which told me how to address this issue. I’m hoping this will now allow the update to be applied correctly.
