Microsoft halts Windows Phone 7 update for Samsung phones

Windows Phone 7 update stopped until fixed

The first, minor Windows Phone 7 update that's bricking some Samsung Omnia 7 handsets has now been pulled, as Microsoft has found a technical issue with it. The software giant wrote back to WinRumors, informing it that the problem applies only to a small number of Samsung phones. As a result, the update was temporarily pulled and the update is being fixed before Microsoft releases it again.

The update was a minor one to ready handsets for the larger NoDo update due for early March. This will bring with it copy and paste functionality along with a number of performance improvements.

Users were reporting that some Samsung Focus phones, not just the Omnia 7, were bricked during the software update process. Pulling the batteries or hard resetting the devices wouldn't help. Microsoft has gone to the point of telling users to bring in their broken devices to the store.
