Microsoft details Fresh issues with Samsung Focus and Omnia 7 NoDo update

Samsung Omnia 7

Yesterday, Microsoft confirmed that a small number of Samsung Focus owners on AT&T are not receiving the company’s Windows Phone NoDo update. Microsoft also revealed that they are currently tracking two issues hat could temporarily prevent some Windows Phone 7 owners from receiving updates.

On Windows Blog , Eric Hautala, GM, Customer Experience Engineering said "we recently halted delivery of updates to Samsung Omnia 7s after learning of a technical issue that required a new update software package. The new package is nearly ready, and we’re eager to resume updates to this model. Once I have a start date, I’ll let you know."

"We’ve also been looking into reports from a small number of Samsung Focus owners on AT&T who haven’t received an update notification. " said Hautala.

On Samsung Focus, Hautala has this to say:

To accommodate high demand for the Focus last year, two separate sources of flash memory components were required during manufacturing. Focus models are identical in all other ways.

Most Focus owners are receiving our updates. But some customers with handsets containing the alternative memory component aren’t. We’re now working closely with Samsung and AT&T to test and deliver an update for this group. As soon as I have more specifics, I’ll let you know.

Microsoft also confirmed the "7392" update. "This week we also begin distributing a small new update that adds no new features to your phone. Its sole purpose is to fix nine fraudulent third-party digital certificates.  Once installed, you’ll see “OS version: 7.0.7392.0” when you tap Settings>About>More Info on your phone.  You can read more about 7392 on our Update History page" said Hautala.
