ChevronWP7 Updater Tool Taken Offline, Chris Walsh Apologizes

April 8, 2011 No Comments

Last week was a bit difficult for those who awaited their update but didn’t receive it. This week brought promise that most of us would have the update and at the very least if we didn’t get the official update there were different methods floating around online telling you just what to do to update your phone.

One such method was the ChevronWP7 homebrew method. This method brought hope to those who weren’t even scheduled to have the update yet and also to those who weren’t able to accomplish getting the update in another way. Because of the hope and happiness brought to people through this updater tool it was a shocking turn of events when Microsoft advised against using it.

Chris Walsh the creator of the homebrew updater tool put a blog post regarding the matter. In it he says that he “incorrectly used an undocumented API to deliver updates”. Also that Microsoft told him that doing an update using his method “will place devices in a “non-serviceable state”, although on its’ own blog Microsoft simply said that this method may disable your phones’ ability to receive updates. Walsh goes on to apologize and says that he will let those of you who used the tool know what you should do next.
