How To Force & Hack Your Windows Phone 7 Device To Install The NoDo Update

If Microsoft is dwelling on the Windows Phone 7 update process and says that it’s the carriers’ fault that you’re not getting it, then a clever guy managed to force his phone find the update.

It’s a very simple trick and lots of users have reported that it works on their devices and you won’t harm your Windows Phone 7 device if you try it.

How to force and hack your Windows Phone 7 device to install the Windows Phone 7 NoDo update:
  1. Open Zune on your computer;

  2. Turn “Off” data connection on your WP7;

  3. Turn “Off” WiFi connection on your WP7;

  4. Hit the “update” button in Zune on your computer;

  5. While searching for the update, disconnect your computer from the internet – either turn WiFi “Off” or unplug your Ethernet cable;

  6. Zune will now say that you can download the Windows Phone 7 NoDo update for your WP7;

  7. Connect your computer to the internet once again – turn WiFi “On” or plug your Ethernet cable;

  8. Install the Windows Phone 7 NoDo update on your WP7.

Please note that the most important step is when Zune is searching for an update at step 5! Disconnect from the internet after 2 to 5 seconds. That’s the timing most people used and it worked for them.

If it doesn’t work the first time, then try again. And if it doesn’t work at your second attempt, then try again. Just keep on trying until you force the Windows Phone 7 NoDo update to show up on your Zune.

Let me know if it worked for you! Specify what Windows Phone 7 device you own and on what carrier you’re using it.
