Want The Tango Update Before It’s Pushed To You? Here’s How
All right. I was hearing a lot of people talk about getting the Windows Phone Tango update, over the past couple of weeks, and every day, I kept checking up with Zune (yes, that bloatware I wish dies sooner than later). And every time, it’d disappoint me, saying my HTC HD7 has the latest firmware. I was getting sick of, so I decided to Google on alternate solutions.
And I’m glad I’ve a solution I can recommend you to use.
Before I start, I do know it’ll sound very lame, and I thought the same when I first read it. But it works, and it doesn’t involve any geekery. Right, here’s what you need to do.
- Connect your Windows Phone to your computer, and launch Zune (if it doesn’t launch automatically).
- Let it finish syncing.
- Now open Control Panel -> Network and Internet -> Network and Sharing Center -> Change Adapter Settings. Keep that window open.
- Set the windows (Zune and the Network Connections) side by side.
- Now in Zune, open Settings -> Phone -> Update.
- In the Network Connections window, disable the connection before Zune says that the software on your phone is latest. If it doesn’t notify you about a new update, re-enable the connection and try again. You’ll have to do this for some time, it’s trial and error. I could get the notification after doing it for five minutes, so yeah.
- After you receive the notification, re-enable the connection, and update your Windows Phone. This is all you need to do. Zune will do the rest
There are two updates that I installed – first was 7.10.8112.7 and the second one, i.e., Tango, 7.10.8773.98. I repeated the process for the second update too.
