The Windows Phone 7.5 Mango Roll out has started


Mango is go in the US and in Europe folks. Microsoft has just updated the Where’s my Update page with the following info:

Mobile operator 7008 7390 7392 Windows Phone 7.5*
AT&T Delivering update Delivering update Delivering update** Delivering update***
Sprint Preinstalled Preinstalled Delivering update Delivering update
T-Mobile Delivering update Delivering update Delivering update Delivering update
Verizon Preinstalled Preinstalled Delivering update Delivering update
Open market phones Delivering update Delivering update Delivering update Delivering update
All other operators Preinstalled Preinstalled Delivering update Delivering update

Please let us know in the comments below once you have received your update notification: Phone model, current Firmware/Rom you are running and your carrier please.

UPDATE: Unfortunately Samsung Omnia 7 owners on SFR (France) and T-Mobile (Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Macedonia, Netherlands, UK) won’t get it now…

UPDATE: The notification will on be sent to 10% of the users out there this week and more will follow if everything goes as planned. So don’t panic if you don’t see anything today or tomorrow.

UPDATE: I just posted instructions on how to manually update the Samsung Omnia 7 firmware (that’s not the force trick method at all)

Public Service Annnouncement: Please remember that the Mango update is made of 2 separate updates: OS and Firmware. Most of you are only getting the OS update right now and this isn’t enough for an optimal experience. You’ll have to wait for the OEM Firmware update which contains updated drivers and Radio. You could also try to force the update via the old method.

UPDATE: For all you Samsung Omnia 7 users, the official firmware should look like this (thx to @degsyh and Paul in the comments below):

- Firmware version is now: 2424.11.8.5
- Radio Software version : 2424.11.27.2
- Bootloader:

    i have omnia7 unbranded is time to downgrade to nodo? kc1? i have mango rom.. kg1

  • MobileTechWorld

    Let’s wait until the European roll out starts. Which version of Mango are you currently running? if you are on the 7712  beta (with a dev unlocked device) you won’t have to roll back to NoDo.

    Edit: it’s a go in Eurpoe too but not for the SFR Branded Omnia 7, T-Mobile branded Omniaè etc.. meh

  • Counterfitninja

    Just gone live on HD7 O2 Uk… 

  • Ccmd_232

    International updates are rolling out as well, almost all of them. Haven’t received anything yet though

  • droody

    i have a htc surround and im still waiting

  • Errorholic

    i have kg1 rom from tmobile for engineering.. is out as i can see on

  • Manuel Costa

    No update for me. I’m running Omnia 7 (PORTUGAL).

  • Mohamed Amer

    Omnia 7 Australia, nothing yet :S

  • Vince Jenkins

    Samsung Focus, ATT, Chicago. No notification of an update yet, 12:30pm here.

  • Darin

    just got 7392 update from Verizon but not Mango yet.

  • Martin Müller

    I have an Omnia 7 on T-Mobile (Germany) with Mango Beta and was able to install the final version a few minutes ago. But I had to check manually via Zune.

  • MobileTechWorld

    Now that’s crazy! Thanks for the info Martin! What’s your new firmware/rom version now ?

  • Juan Barinas

    Zune is installing the update on my Dell Venue Pro! So the DVP update is clearly not in Planning anymore. :-D

  • Agile Hobo

    Seems Microsoft set phones with Mango beta higher priority.

  • Michel

    I’m updating to mango now. I have an omnia 7 flashed with samfirmware ROM I8700BSEKC1. I live in Belgium but i use a t-mobile sim (although i don’t think it matters since i have an open market phone because of the flashed ROM).

  • Martin Müller

    Software: Windows Phone 7.5
    Betriebssystemversion 7.10.7720.68 (should be OS Version)

    That’s the final version of Mango, right?

  • Ryu2k8

    Anyone from Germany with O2 and HTC HD7 has Mango Update Notification? or via Zune

  • MobileTechWorld

    Yup! but what’s the firmware version though? (all the stuff that you see when you hit “more info”)

  • Martin Müller

    Firmwarevisionsnummer: 2424.11.2.3
    Funksoftwareversion: 2424.11.2.2
    Chip SOC Version:

    Anything else?! :-)

  • MobileTechWorld

    Ah well that’s weird cause the leaked T-Mobile Mango firmware is newer than the one that was pushed to your phone. Did you actually get both updates during the all process (OS and Firmware)? And Finally can you try the Allshare Samsung application and see if it works ?

  • F.E:.

    HTC Mozart,BiH,I’m still waiting…

  • Martin Müller

    There was only one update if I check Zune right now it says that everything is up to date. So you mean I’ll receive another update?

    I’ll try the allshare app next weekend because I don’t have a Samsung TV around. Or can I test it without it?!….If so…what should I test?

  • Yohan Amant


  • MobileTechWorld

    Yes I just double checked and it looks like your firmware hasn’t bee updated yet.
    You can try it right now. Just let me know if it actually launches (the issue we all had was that it didn’t launch at all and display a “your device is not compatible” error message). Thanks a lot!

  • kwabz

    Just updated my Omnia 7 to Mango
    Omnia 7 unbranded on Bouygues Telecom (France)

  • MobileTechWorld

    Was the Firmware updated too ?

  • MobileTechWorld

    Was the Firmware updated too ? Apparently Omnia 7 user who are getting the notifications are only receving the OS update right now.

  • Martin Müller

    I get the same error message when I try to launch the allshare app:-(

    I’ll check Zune for the real final update again (tomorrow)….keep you posted!

  • MobileTechWorld

    Thanks Martin! Definitely looks like you only got the OS.

  • kwabz

    My firmware is still 2424.10.10.6

  • MobileTechWorld

    Oki then the Mango update isn’t totally done on your handset. You will need to Samsung driver update (firmware).

  • Errorholic

    have anyone more tha 5 diffult language?

  • Paul Broomhead

    Try this:

    Connect your phone to your PC and check for updates via Zune
    If it says no update is available, check again but immediately disconnect from the internet
    After 30 seconds or so you should be told an update is available
    Reconnect to the internet and perform the update

  • Conor Raypholtz

    same here

  • Fredrik

    I got Mango on  my phone by doing the disconnect-trick in Zune. I am now running Mango on Samsung Omnia 7, firmware revision 2424.11.8.5.
    However, I live in Finland I really was looking forward to getting Swedish as language option, but I still only have the 5 original languages to choose from. What to do to get the new languages?

  • Dennise Darko

    Got Mango update via Zune today for my Omnia 7 … however without OEM additions (still old firmware, bootloader, etc.) :-S

  • MobileTechWorld

    That’s a good question. Apparently languages included in the Firmware are depended on your Carrier. I’m guessing that you are unbranded ?

  • MobileTechWorld

    Don’t worry it shouldn’t take long before it arrives.

  • Fredrik

    …and I have to say that it feels like a new phone, much faster, and what a difference mango makes, it corrects almost every issue I had with 7.0, fantastic!

  • Fredrik

    Yes, unbranded.

  • Ccmd_232

    I tired the tunneling method and it showed that there is an update but not Mango, it’s 7.0.7403, is that part of the process? My phone is unbranded Samsung Omnia 7, NoDo OS (7.0.7392.0), FW: 2424.11.3.1

  • MobileTechWorld

    YEs you should upgrade to 7403 then the 7720 update will show up.

  • Ccmd

    Ok thanks man, you are the best, I’ll update my phone and update here once I finish :)

  • Arelamo

    I only got “2424.11.7.2″ as Radio Software version.. the rest you ( @MobileTechWorld:disqus ) listed at the bottom of the article is the same. Strange..

  • Ccmd

    I just finished updating. Unbranded Samsung Omnia 7. After the update, the Firmware, Radio and Bootloaders have been updated as well as mention above by MobileTechWorld.

  • MobileTechWorld

    Sorry it was a typo..

  • Marco

    Same here: i got only the OS update! (Italian Omnia 7) We must find a solution! :)

  • Rafael Muñoz

    Im exactly on same situation as Martin. Updated but just OS, so i’m gonna risk with the firmware

  • Arelamo

    Good to know :)

  • Anonymous

    Just got the Mango update, after using the Zune update/disconnect trick.

  • omnia 7 – mango

    used the cut internet method to update to mango, but i got a weird issue, my firmware revision number on my omnia 7 is 0222.11.8.5!!!!! no typo!!!

    hardware revision number:
    radio software version: 2424.11.7.2
    radio hardware version:
    bootloader version:

    whats the best thing for me to do??????

  • Bexmax

    Hi everyone!

    Last night, I plugged my Omnia 7 to my laptop, checked for updates,..and there you go! I got notification that update is available!
    The lat version I had was NoDo and I didnt flash any leaked versions before so I guess that’s it!

    It required two rows of installation processes. The first one updated first to 7403 (if i’m not wrong) and than when finalized and when it went “checking for any additional updates” it started allover again and updated to 7.12.7720.68 aka Mango!

    I found it weird a bit give that I live in Kosovo and expected rollaout here at a very last stage, but seems I got a bit lucky :) .

    I was wondering if anyone has a tip where I can read about the new features for Mango? I’ts maybe stuppid to say, but except for a bit faster work of the device and few tiny display things, I don’t quite see any major upgrade here.

    Yes I’m sure, I have mango installed on my device now.


  • MobileTechWorld

    App updates are the same as usual. If it’s installed on you device you will get the update prompt in the Marketplace app to update it.

  • MobileTechWorld

    Everything you want to know about the new Mango features:

    BTW make sure that you also got the Firmware update too. Yours should now be 2424.11.8.5

  • MobileTechWorld

    Oddly enough you are not the only one with this firmware version. Seem to be the final one though. Are you on SFR in France ?

  • Bexmax

    Just checked it and seems to be the one you wrote there :-) !

    As usual, you are the best man :-)

    Thanks a lot!

  • omnia 7 – mango

    orange UK, phone is fine to use, but 0222 this seems really old when it should be 2424.

    i did the update on my laptop, but stupidly as guest mode so have no backup. i updated to nodo on my home pc, so im thinking when i next go home from uni il roll back and then try the update. think this might help?

  • MobileTechWorld

    This may very well be the Orange branded version of the firmware so I wouldn’t worry much about it. You can roll back and try again if you want though just to be sure.

  • omnia 7 – mango

    thanks man, i noticed in a previous post you asked if the samsung all share app works, it didnt when i tried it. hopefully orange Uk do have an upgraded firmware, but im not too worried as phone seems to be working fine. il just roll back and try the legitimate update later.

  • MobileTechWorld

    Yes the Allshare app still doesn’t work even on the latest firmware. Let’s hope that Samsung updates it and doesn’t restrict it to the new models.

  • Anonymous

    I got the forced version of mango with the wrong firmware so I restored it back to Nodo. Does this mean I’ll be able to get mango when the official mango version comes out or have I just blown my chance of getting the official mango?

  • Harald Heide Gundersen

    Samsung Omnia 7 Norway
    Still no update.  Current phone software version 7.0 (7393) (from Update in zune)
    Will wait a couple of days more before going for forced update… :-)

  • Alasdair Crow

    I upgraded to this [7.0.7403] and it has ruined the phone – downloaded Apps won’t run, Marketplace, Maps, IE and other MS Apps won’t open etc.

    Worst part is, Zune won’t display “Restore” because the update window just keeps searching and searching… What can I do? The 7720 upgrade never showed up.

  • SG Records

    Hi, I’ve an Orange UK Omnia 7 and my firmware is still 0222. Also tried to revert to NoDo and upgrade again without cut internet trick, but it doesn’t upgrade the firmware.
    Did you find a solution?
