    I already had 392 and am updating to 4302 now, but my phone wifi and phone data were both ON. I read the wpcentral article earlier (it's down now - does anyone else notice that? I hope Microsoft didn't kill the WPCentral crew...) and it took me a few tries because I had to remember when to switch my pc wifi off:

    1.) I plugged in my phone (WITHOUT TURNING MY PHONE'S WIFI OR DATA OFF) and checked for an update - none available.
    2.) I clicked whatever category on Zune's phone settings is above "Update"
    3.) I clicked "Update" again, waited 2 seconds, and then switched my pc wifi off. If it helps, I happened to notice that I switched my wifi off just as the pink-orange "progress bar" on the Zune software (it appears under where it says "checking for updates") expanded to it's maximim length (it appears short at first, then get's longer from left to right, then does the spiraling animation).
    4.) After about 15-30 seconds, it said an update was available. I turned my wifi back on, and clicked update.

    If it helps:

    Whoa mama, Balmer and Belfiore are damn lucky I can't stand the iPhone. Heres how my mango update has gone:
    1) Tried to force update, >:-(
    2) Tried again, :-)
    3) Laptop USB port caused error, 7392 update didnt finish, >:-(
    4) Tried again, same thing, >:-(
    5) Went to Fry's, got new laptop because of crap USB ports, :-)
    6) Just I stalled 7392, now it's doing 7403, :-)
    7) And now, IT'S INSTALLING 7720!!!!!!!! Mango time b*****s!!!

    The forced update trick, did the trick!

    Was able to force the update on my Focus, but got almost all the way through the update process to get to 7392 and encountered a 80180048 error. Any suggestions?

    I was able to force my phone to do the first and second part of the update. My phone now has 7430 or w/e but then when it goes to install mango 7700 it downloads the update know problem but then when it get to the transfering update stage or the process it freezes at 11 percent. Has anyone else had this problem and do you know how to fix it?

    I believe someone stated earlier that this error was resolved by using the Chris Walsh repair tool. Check back through this thread.


    Here is a copy and past from that.

    FYI, if you get this error that means you Walshed your phone. Running the Walsh support tool (found: €œWalshed€ Phone Support Tool: official fix to get you back on track - Chris Walsh) fixed the issue, and i'm on my way!

    I'm in the process of installing 7403 right now. The trick works really well and I haven't had problems pulling it off.

    I was originally going to wait, but things are final so what's the point. If they decide to update the firmware after the fact... worst comes to worst I don't get the update until Apollo.

    took lots of tries but finally got 'er going with Arrive. Phone was in airplane mode, rebooted for good measure, counted "one one thousand, 2" then disconnected (no one thousand for 2nd count).... and voila! took me LOTs of tries to get this timing right but I got it and am updating now!

    WPC and XDA-Dev guys are the best! Thanks for not making me wait like a schlub! PARTY!

    I did my Trophy as soon as this trick was posted on the front page. It took about an hour total. I did not do anything with my phone. I just disabled the network connection by right clicking on the connection in "Change Adapter Settings" in "Network and Sharing Center" in Windows 7. It worked first time for 7392 and 7403. 7720 started on it's own. Step 7 on 7720 took forever, but I patiently waited.

    It took a few tries to trick Zune but it worked. I already had 7392 so it went right into 7403.

    Much gratitude to whomever came up with this trick!

    I have been attempting this ALL day and failing. As pat of a last ditch attempt I restarted my computer, thinking that would somehow make a difference (I was desperate at this point).

    When I started up Zune, a phone notification popped up, and my update process began! I guess I'm part of the 10% that got the update rolled out today. So I'm really lucky on that hand because I could not get this method to work for me.

    During the update process I found out my phone's driver needs to be updated (error 801812C1). So, still no idea if I'll have Mango soon, but this is progress. Good luck everyone else.

    Gammit, it's taking FOREVER with the 7720 update...It's "determining the amount of disk space required to complete the update".

    Argh come on!

    Well I forced the update on my Focus.

    Got through the first two pre-Mango updates... and finally to the Mango update.

    Unfortunately it got all the way to step 9 of 10 (restarting your phone) and now it's stuck at the Samsung splash screen. :mad: Sat there at step 9 of 10 for maybe 20 minutes before I unhooked it and battery pulled to get it to shut off, still stuck at the Samsung screen. Zune won't recognize it being connected either un order to Restore it.

    Any suggestions?

    Should have just let it sit there because you might have stopped it during the part where it was updating the firmware. (Always the risky part)

    That's the thing though, it HAD been sitting there. For quite awhile as if it got stuck while restarting.

    Is there a way to force a Restore with the backup?

    Have you tried the three button reset? Power button, down volume button and camera button from the phone being turned off.

    I used the trick and it worked! I am so stoked. It took about an hour or more for the backup and the first update (7.0.7403.0) plus the Mango update (7.10.7720.68).

    I did get screen captures of both updates plus a few photos of the phone in progress.

    Big SIGH of relief!
