UPDATE: HTC first to update Windows Phone 7 with its own ROM

While Microsoft and its carrier partners are still in the process of rolling-out Windows Phone 7's pre-NoDo and NoDo updates, it looks like HTC is going even further and is currently distributing its first own Windows Phone 7 update! We've just received the following screenshot which shows that a "HTC update for Windows Phone" is available! While we have previously heard that manufacturers will also be able to push updates to their Windows Phone 7 devices (for instance it's expected that Dell will release a separate WiFi bug-fix for its Venue Pro soon after the NoDo update), this is the first screenshot of a manufacturer Windows Phone 7 update which I'm aware of.

According to the info we've received, it seems that users which have updated their HTC devices with ChevronWP7.Updater to NoDo are the first and yet only users which have received the update. However, if this is true it also means that ChevronWP7.Updater updated Windows Phone 7 devices aren't half as dead as maybe feared (see Update 2 at the bottom).

Has anyone else seen or received a dedicated manufacturer update yet?

Cheers ~ Arne

It's funny that I read this...immediately after, I plugged my HD7 in an received the update notification!

I too updated using the WP7Chevron Updater... but If I am still able to receive updates...then I am happy that my phone isn't crippled ;D

No idea what's involved within this update though...

I just installed the HTC update, but not sure what it fixed smile
WP7 runs as smoothly as after No-Do update.

I have a htc trophy and received the update, but it messes up al my pictures !! The colours are not smooth anymore !! It seems the pictures are in lower resolution and the colour layering is now visual, almost as bad as running a commodore 64 sad
I want to revert this update!!

Same here. Pictures are now in a lower resolution and you can clearly see the banding. Bad update. Need to reverse.
