Nokia readies Lumia 710 Tango OS update for China

WP Central

Look what just popped up on Nokia's Care Suite servers. Why it's Windows Phone 7.5 Consumer Release (CR) 3 aka "Tango" for the Nokia Lumia 710 in China. Specifically the ROM build is 1600.3029.8773.12111 where the "8773" denotes the OS version and the "12111" is the firmware build.

Windows Phone OS 8773 is the "gold" version of Tango which adds support for 256 MB devices, MMS enhancements and other smaller, under the hood changes. A lot of phones today are sporting Mango CR1 (8107) or Mango CR2 (8112) and AT&T is expected to rollout CR3 (8773+) for its devices in the future.

Lumia 710 ROM 1600.3029.8773.12111

With the addition of this ROM on Nokia's servers it's a safe bet that those with a Lumia 710 in China will be seeing an update notification from Zune Desktop in the next few days.

Of course the big question is can you flash this to your Lumia 710 if you're using Nokia Care Suite (much like the 8107 update)? Technically, yes, you can but seeing as this is a ROM for China we're not too sure on what language packs are on board. It's very likely English is there but if you'll be taking a risk as downgrading a ROM can be difficult.

We'll keep an ear out if this ROM starts to pushed out to user or if you're a risk-taker, whether you can flash it yourself (and void your warranty).

Thanks, @Arktronic, for the tip

Nokia FTW! Hurry up and take china by storm. It's your chance to overtake iPhone there

Truthfully, I'm starting to feel like a risk taker not flashing my Tmo 710: I almost threw the bloody thing across the room in a rather fatal manner a few minutes ago as the keyboard disappeared on me mid-IM yet again.

I flashed my T-Mo to 8107, no issues. Use our force-update tutorial or the Nokia tools.

mmaestro says:

Glad it went well for you. I did look at that and stopped when I couldn't figure out which language the squiggles were for the language packs. Any ideas? And what's the likelihood this'll make it awkward for me to upgrade "officially" later?
Thanks.

Is there any information on the supported languages (and keyboards) in Tango?

Come on tmo

China's talking Tango! already, and both of the other T-Mo WP7 phones have gotten theirs while the 710 lags behind. Even VZW updated the Trophy (the phone I just left to come to T-Mo for the 710). I think I have about a week's worth of patience in me before I just flash it myself, though I'd really rather it not have to come to that...
 
There really needs to be a reform to the update process in the US. Carriers need to step aside and let updates happen as they were meant to.
