Dell Venue Pro Firmware update to fix Wifi And Memory issues finally released

Dell has just announced that the much anticipated 2.16 firmware for the Venue Pro that will finally fix some of the Wifi and Memory issues has started to roll out today in the US (T-Mobile users will only get it next week) and outside of the US. Here’s a reminder:

The main fix in the updated firmware is that it addresses the Wi-Fi and lockup issues. Here’s what was going on: the Wi-Fi and the user memory storage area both use the same DMA channel. So, if you downloaded a lot of data via Wi-Fi (like a game or other Marketpace app, or even a YouTube video) while the phone was trying to write to the user memory storage location, you sometimes see lockups due to a DMA conflict. In other words, lockups could occur when Wi-Fi data downloading conflicted with writing to the user memory storage location.

This whole mess surely backfired on Dell as they are no longer listed as a Windows Phone OEM anymore and no longer expected to launch a Mango device.
