The first WP7 Update

[sc:mobile-category ]Yesterday Microsoft pushed out the first update to Windows Phone 7 and I guess I’m one of the lucky ones to have received it in the first “wave”.

The update is nothing special, just an update to the update software, presumably to get us ready for the next “copy and paste” update coming in March.

Installation required a sync with my PC and an update to the Zune desktop software.  I only ran in to a single problem, after downloading and updating the new version of the desktop software it tried to “restart” the Zune desktop, however it failed with an error message.

Re-launching the Zune software however picked right back up and continued to deploy the patch.

The longest part of the update was the complete backup of the phone, which seems like it was  good thing as there is some chatter around the net that some phones needed a hard reset after the update.

Remember, backups are your friend 😉
