Windows Phone 7 Mango RTM leaked and available now

If you feel a bit adventurous then the you may have some fun this weekend with the 7720 RTM build of Windows Phone 7 Mango which has apparently already leaked and can installed on any developer unlocked handset. Just beware that this IS NOT SUPPORTED IN ANY WAY by Microsoft (or me) so blame yourself if something goes wrong. One other thing to not is that some things still seem to be missing like the Hidden-WiFi network options so one has to wonder if this is indeed the real RTM or if some features will only be enabled by a OEMs firmware updated later on. Grab the Rom here and Just head over to the source link for the instructions.

I’ll attempt to update my Omnia 7 in a few minutes and report back.

UPDATE: I’ve just updated my Omnia 7 and everything seems to be working fine. There’s barely any change between this 7720.68 build and the previous 7712 Beta. IE9 seems to be atiny-bit smoother but this is probably a placebo effect. Unfortunately the silly tap-to-activate voice navigation feature is still here and the Hidden-WiFi network setting are nowhere to be seen. Also note that if you are a Samsung Omnia 7, Samsung Focus or LG Optimus 7 owner who had trouble updating to the first update back in February then you will get hit by the same issue here (the phone will get stuck at the “reboot” part of the process. You will have 2 solutions: Either free up some memory on your handset or simply reset it (this is what I had to do cause everything else didn’t work.)
