After a lot of reported chaos in the media over Windows Phone 7 updates, things seem to be returning back to normalcy in Microsoft and the Windows Phones universe. The company is going to resume the Windows Phone 7 updates for the Samsung phones while the updates continue to be dispatched to the other models of Windows Phones.
The company is following a rolling schedule in making the update available to the Windows Phone 7 operating system based phones. The users are notified when the update is available for their phone.
Michael Stroh from Microsoft says in a blog post, “During the past week the engineering team has pinpointed and fixed problems that were preventing a small percentage of Windows Phones from installing the February software patch”.
Microsoft has also posted on its blog that 90 per cent of the users who received the updates, installed them successfully on their phones. It means, for future users who are going to receive the update, 90 per cent chances are they would receive the updates successfully. Half of those who really went through some problems, experienced it because of two reasons — the Internet connection failed, or there was not enough space on their computer to backup their phone data.
At the same time, Microsoft was still aware of the problems being experienced by those whose phones were bricked by the update and was working to make sure it is not repeated.
