    I used this guide, it was pretty straight forward just took awhile.

    How To Install WP7 Mango Beta Update

    Guess the dangers are bricking your phone (not likely but possible). You will also need to revert back to nodo later before you install the official update, so make sure to keep the backup the tool creates safe.

    And don't panic at the 10 minute wait before the progress bar appears after the red do not unplug symbol appears, and then another 10 minute stop in the middle, it moves eventually.

    Good luck mutize23, it's not difficult really, just a little nerve racking when you think nothings happening. ;)

    Thanks ^^

    one more question though is it worth it? because ive read once you downgrade back to nodo, you lose all your information on your phone to a clean reset =(, cant afford that !

    is it true?

    Yes, you revert back to your backup that was made during the update. If you want to keep all your data (saved games and the like) then wait until the official update drops.

    I literally, JUST updated to Mango tonight.

    I'm in college, so I have a student email, and used that to get a free dev account for the time being.

    That's a totally different process I guess, but I tried it once and the back up failed. I have a Focus with an Extra 16 GB card, so I went back and deleted all my music.

    That's an extra tip. Delete everything you can resync before your back up so the back up takes less time and less chance of a screw up. Why do I need to be backing up my music when I already have it backed up every which way to Tuesday?
