hey

if i force mango on my phone, will it remove the orange carrier label and then void my warranty?

according to BillCox it seems okay, is he even a genuine microsoft guy though?

sorry to sound such a noob aha i'm not into this technical stuff im just desperate for mango

It won't remove any branding dan094, it was for some, removing the Orange section, but this seems to be resolved now.

No sign of your Orange update yet through Zune the normal way then ?

Oh and Welcome along. :)

Well the only problem you may find and i'm not sure if it's specific to him was that he has forced the update and it didn't update his firmare to the latest.

You get updated firmware as well as the latest phone software. (Mango)

What firmware do you have just now ? (Settings / About / More Info)

The user in question was podsnap

Have a wee lookie through his thread dan094.

No you're not, you're just attempting to get an early update. :)

Good luck if you give it a try. (You may need to try it several times to get the timing right)
