Just finished the install here. Seems to be working alright.
Let's just hope the alarm doesn't have any bugs and doesn't fail to wake me up tomorrow morning.
I got an invitation, but, I haven't get the actual download tool yet. Not sure I should do it. I am not an actual WP dev yet.
Given the problems I've previously had updating my Omnia 7, I think I'll let someone else take the plunge first and see how they get on -- it's not just a dev phone, it's my only mobile!
Anyone updated an Omnia 7 yet?
I've updated a htc trophy. Needed to do it twice for some reason.
First time it was done within 5 minutes, second time it took like 30 minutes to an hour.
Don't forget to register your device again as dev device, that's not done automaticly.
Installing it right now
Need to make a backup,..
I updated two phones. On the second one, I forgot to remove all the media beforehand, so the backup process was taking forever. I cancelled the process midstream, and for a few seconds I was momentarily overcome by this flush feeling (you know the kind that happens when you think you're getting nailed by a cop for speeding but it turns out to be somebody else he's going after?) because the phone appeared to be bricked. I pulled the battery, turned it back one, and it booted up just fine. Whew! I removed all the media, which I already have backed up, and it updated just fine.
My wife's Omnia backed up and updated just fine & way quicker than my HD7! (I had loads of crap on mine though - so backup took forever - good idea to restore to factory default before you upgrade (assuming you already have everything backed up of course)
OK, I took the plunge this morning before work and all worked smoothly. I backed up the backup folders onto a thumb-drive for safekeeping.
I shall play with Mango for a day or two, but then I shall probably restore the backup as I have some changes I want to make to my pre-Mango app before Mango comes along. I can always put Mango beta back on later.
Liking the IE9 browser (the fishtank demo works at 28fps on my Omnia 7, which is quite impressive).
