Force Windows Phone 7 Mango Download

October 6th, 2011 by Patrick S

With the release of Windows Phone Seven Mango (7.1) the other day I was really keen to get it installed as soon as possible on my HTC Trophy. Unfortunately my carrier had not yet approved it (and to the best of my knowledge; still hasn’t). Fortunately the WP7 no-do download trick still works and it allowed me to download and install Mango before it was approved by my carrier.

Essentially this trick prevents the Zune software from checking if my mobile carrier has approved my phone (IMEI?) for the update.

Note: This trick does not work with all devices – e.g. the Samsung Omnia is still yet to get approved at a top level.

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/Disable your network adaptor).
6. Zune finds “MANGO”-Update. Press OK.
7. Connect to the internet again and install the update

Good Luck.
