Microsoft Windows Phone 7.8 Update Rolling Out Again
Windows Phone-powered fans are in for some good news, according to reports. Microsoft has begun rolling out the Windows Phone 7.8 upgrade once again, after it stopped doing so earlier this month.
According to a WP Central report, the Windows Phone 7.8 update is being pushed out to users once again. The new update has the build 8860, compared to build 8858 of the previous version.
"We're getting our inbox flooded with tips from folks noting that their numerous Windows Phones (mostly unbranded), are receiving a new OS update today, knocking their build from 8858 to 8860. We just checked our AT&T Lumia 900 and did not have success, meaning carrier-branded devices may have to wait a few more weeks," notes WP Central.
Users who have unlocked smartphones would see the update pushed out to their devices soon. Alternately, they can manually check for updates. Currently, the software upgrade has no changelog; however, the update will likely address the Live Tile stability issues, which were found in the original Windows Phone 7.8 release.
The bugs with the original Windows Phone 7.8 release caused the Tiles to not update and drained data. The Zune Desktop installation only mentions "quality improvements" and not new features or additions, hinting that this is a bug-fix release.
Users who own carrier-branded devices will have to wait a bit longer before the update arrives on their phones. This means that users who have phones like the Nokia Lumia 900 will have to wait for AT&T to roll out the update.
At this juncture, it is not known when the update for carrier-branded devices will release. As of now it seems that the update is rolling out mostly in Europe. The Windows Phone 7.8 update is a free software upgrade.
