Ever since Microsoft has been a bit more candid about some of the problems with the 7.8 update, specifically Tiles that either don’t update or suck down too much data, there have been reports of Microsoft halting the update in some countries. Germany has been pretty much confirmed at this point as throwing the brakes and now Russia is evidently joining the crowd.
In a Tweet from the official Nokia account for Russia, it’s noted that Microsoft has hit the hold button on the update due to “gaps” in the OS i.e. a few bugs. That’s good news as it will help prevent the problem from going wider but obviously it’s still not a preferred solution.
It will be curious to see if Microsoft re-starts the 7.8 update with a fixed OS or if they just put it on hold indefinitely.
