Mango update unleashed to everyone

Eric Hautala is back! With some more good news regarding the Mango roll out, which has now been bumped up to 100%. Everyone is now set to receive the notifications to update their NoDo powered handset (be sure to keep an eye on Where's My Phone Update?), up from 50% only two weeks ago.

The LG Optimus 7 on Telefonica in Spain is now being scheduled, finally. Eric mentions that work is still ongoing, for example with Orange FR where technical difficulties are preventing the network and Windows Phone team from pushing out the update at full speed.

On a side note, you may receive a notification of an update after Mango has been applied, which will be firmware related.

One last thing. Next week we’ll start delivering some model-specific “firmware” from handset makers, so don’t be alarmed if you receive an additional update notification on your phone. These updates are designed to activate new Windows Phone 7.5 features or improve your phone’s performance. Not everybody will receive or require one: It all depends on your country, carrier, and phone model.

We're not yet aware of which handsets will be receiving this firmware, hopefully more information will be made available soon. This could well be the missing WiFi tethering drivers.

Not sure why this is being reported as 100% by all the blogs. The article says, "So today we’re fully opening the spigot —slightly ahead of schedule—and making Mango available to nearly everyone in the current delivery pool"I haven't yet received it on my T-Mobile Dell Venue Pro.

Rich Edmonds says:

The deployment has been opened up for all consumers to update. Of course this is depending on carriers with finalising the update and testing.

According to the Where's My Update page, the update has been released to all T-Mobile USA phones. I have not recevied it yet on my T-Mobile Venue Pro. I know others have.

How is it for 100%?*** The Samsung Focus v. 1.4 is Testing and the Dell Venue Pro is in Planning.Still no update for my focus

blnwp says:

The update page is still not updated(pun not intended)."Last updated: 10.13.2011"Still waiting for Mango with a Focus v. 1.4 phone. No timelines still?

jjMustang says:

100% because the artificial random deployment has been removed and every phone that has an update available should be able to get it.

I wasn't bashing the article writer, I was bashing the guy (Eric) in the article that said it. Calm yourself.

Please be a fix for the GPS on my Optimus 7.

I wonder if doing the force update glitch will prevent me from getting the firmware updates for my Verizon locked HTC Trophy, I don't see what could improve anyway-Mango already runs faster than NoDo (Much faster)
