How To Force NoDo Update

March 31, 2011 8 Comments

For those of you who are in the delivering phase of the NoDo update but have yet to receive it XDA has found a rather simple way to force the update, and best of all it really does work. I should know, I used their method for my own update. Here’s what you have to do:

1. Start Zune
2. Turn off Data connection and Wifi on the Phone
3. Connect the Phone with the PC (USB)
4. Start the update search in Zune
5. About 3 seconds later, disconnect your PC from the internet (Turn WLAN off).
6. Zune finds NoDo-Update. Press OK.
7. Connect to the internet again and install the update.

It was a little difficult to get the timing right with all of this but it’s a simple enough process that with a little bit of trial and error you will have the update in no time. Good luck!

    THis is retarted, you either get, your phone is up to do or can’t check for updates right now, why on earth would M$ leave it up to the carrier to allow te updates?

      I don’t know… Carriers can be just down right evil sometimes. :(

      Did you try the trick? Carrier? Phone model?
