    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.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    @magicalclick: They only send out an invitation to WP7 devs that are registered at the WP7 app hub and paid that $99. If you click the link in that mail, it takes you to the downloads.

    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.

    Taha, I clicked those accept boxs and didn't realize I already can download the file after that.

    @magicalclick: I liked the way every second tick box was a 'you will back your phone up' option Smiley

    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)

    @Dr Herbie:Upgrade went fine, took a while and seems really nice, smoother scrolling and the threaded email is good.  See what other goodies are in and working.

    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).

    @Dr Herbie: Only problem I've had so far is battery is always at 1%

    @PerfectPhase: Seems fine for me (currently 76%, charged 4 hours ago). I haven't noticed anything amiss yet.
