Windows Phone 7 Update Bricking Some Omnia 7 Devices.


As Microsoft starts preparing for a full on Windows Phone 7 upgrade, minor housekeeping has to get done first. With that said, today was the day that Microsoft (with the help of cellular carriers) began rolling out a small update to prepare handsets for the floodgate of 1′s and 0′s to come at a later date. The only problem — the update is causing issues for Omnia 7 users. Specifically, the update fails to load on the minor end of problems to a full on bricked device on the heavier side of the scale. Microsoft is already familiar with the issue at hand, and as such has released a a tip or two to help users get said phones back into a working state.

So what about these tips? Basically it’s nothing more than a battery pull with a hard reset being the last go-to fix. Any Omnia 7 readers experience a borked Windows Phone 7 update?
