I just wanted to post this here in case someone else has this experience.
I used the "Zune force trick" to update my AT&T Samsung Focus v1.3.
Everything went smoothly until it was restarting the phone after installing Mango. It was stuck on the Samsung boot screen for 10 minutes. I was starting to get worried but I let it sit and eventually it booted up normally and everything was happy.
If you have this same experience, don't freak out too much. Let it sit for a good 10-20 minutes.

Yes, it happened to me too. Got almost scared.
But here's another problem I see with the forced update.
Here are the numbers I see in the 'about':
Radio Hardware: 0.0.0.3
Boot-loader : 220.127.116.11
Chip SOC : 0.36.2.0
Shouldn't I see 7.5 instead? This looks like 7.1
I now regret the forced update I did :( please help

Two things, off-topic(my excuses to the thread starter). Why is that on many videos tiles are red?
I still have them blue.
Oh, and another question: I searched some music on Bing and the last song I listened is now displayed along with the volume control when I press the phone volume controls.
I can't get rid of the player from there, it's annoying.

I updated and mine didn't freeze for 10 minutes. One point, it was for about 4-5 mins.

I got scared for a half hour and changed my mind. I have no idea when I'd officially get the update so why not get it now if I can. So far things have gone smooth. Can't wait to play around with Mango. Microsoft has been teasing it for like 6 months now @_@.
Red seems to be the new official WP7 color. You can change your tile color to red too in the settings. In NoDo, if you rebooted your phone the last played artist information would go away. Maybe try that?

Why did anyone have to force the update to the Focus?
I simply connected to Zune yesterday afternoon without the update prompt on my phone and it just did it no problem. Was that not everyones experience or something?

It's rolling out in...groups? I guess you could say. It's not a massive, everyone at the same time roll out. Those who weren't in the first few groups aren't seeing it in Zune, but there is a method to trick Zune into letting you have the update now. Which in turn, if everyone started forcing the download, could we end up messing up some Windows servers?
