How to Force the 8107 Update on Your Windows Phone (The Hard Way)January 5, 2012 No Comments
Yesterday we posted about the 8107 and how it fixes a few bugs that came along with the Mango update. Along with the changes that were noted to the 8107 build, MobilityDigest has also listed these…
- Updated the Carrier data configuration database
- Updated Radio Interface Layer, SMS & SIM drivers
- SMS & Contacts “bug” fixed
- Updated the Updater Service
- Updated the Internet Sharing Security Policy
- Updated the HowTo Application
- Fixed the Location bug where it shares your information without your knowledge in certain core apps.
- Updates to Zune & the Pictures Hub
- Updates to the Default Zune Tuner configuration
- TCP IP stack updates
- Updates to the MSHTML parser for IE9
- Updates to the Maps & Search functions
- Updates to UI framework driving the phone (Splash or UIX as some call it)
Now the XDA forums have come up with a way to force the update. Now this isnt our usual pain and risk free that we post on here but this is a pretty dangerous way to get it done.
I advise everyone as of now to just hold out and wait till the update gets to you which is rumored to fully rollout next week. If you can’t wait and you know what you are doing, then you can visit the XDA forums as they have cooked up a little something special for forcing this update. For a simpler explanation, you can visit MobilityDigest as they explain things pretty well in their article.
Remember, we hold no responsibility for the outcome of forcing the update in this manner.
We will post our usual simple how to as soon as we get a full roll-out of this update going.
