Use only authorised Nodo updates for WP7: Microsoft

ChevronWP7 is a hack that enables users to get a Nodo update without the approval of Microsoft or the wireless carrier.

Windows Phone 7 users have been cautioned by Microsoft not to use unauthorised solutions to get the Nodo update. Users currently receive a message on their phones whenever the updates are available. The latest Windows Phone 7 update from Microsoft, also known as Nodo, has features such as copy-paste and marketplace search.

Eric Hautala of Microsoft says in a Windows blog post, “We’re working hard to get this job done as quickly as possible. But I’ve noticed that some of you are turning to homebrew solutions to update your phone immediately. As an engineer and a gadget lover, I totally understand the impulse to tinker. You want the latest technology and you’re tired of waiting. Believe me, I get it. But my strong advice is: wait.”

The Nodo update was released last month. Taking advantage of the delayed roll-out, ChevronWP7, an independent software developer, released a hack for Windows Phone 7 that enables users to work around Microsoft and the wireless carrier.

Hautala also says, “It’s even possible your phone might stop working properly. Bottom line: unsupported workarounds put you in uncharted territory that may void your phone warranty. We’ve made a lot of progress in recent weeks, so I urge you to please be patient for just a bit longer and wait for your official update notification to arrive.”

Some WP7 users have already got the official Nodo update on their phones, but Microsoft is still testing the new software on HTC Surround, Samsung Focus and LG Quantum.
