    Wow! followed the thread at XDA Developers and upgraded to 7720 on my Trophy. Working great and enjoying the sweetness of Mango.

    As usual it wont work for me first time round, I think I stuffed up by uninstalling the previous version of Zune 4.8. Got problem with "updatewp".

    After some fiddling around I got it going.

    I had the same problem (updatewp) since the first Mango build. Never did get the first build to go. But for some reason during this installation, a lightbulb lit up and I realized that the Windows Phone Developer Tool I have installed before to do a separate back up could be causing a conflict. I removed it from my PC and the rest of the process went along without hitch.

    The voice notification asking if I want the incoming text/fb read aloud gets annoying sometimes. Especially, when multiple consecutive messages come in from the same person.

    Thats the issue I had with the previous version. My mistake here was that I uninstalled zune to reinstall the new version as I thought it would be better to do a clean install but updatewp went out with the uninstallation and I was trying to use the updatewp from the previous rom.

    Got my wife's Focus in the mail yesterday and today it's running Mango 7720 RTM. BAM!!!

    It was a little more difficult to update than my Surround, since Zune 4.8 was released, but figured it out in the end.

    The update tool used by XDA backs up your phone for you before proceeding with the update. Just make sure you follow instructions to the tee. Although, you probably have the latest Zune software (4.8) installed. You will need to remove that and install Zune Beta 4.8 a couple of times during the whole process. Just let me know if you need help.

    And about the official release, XDA says you will need to revert back to NoDo to get it. But MS seems to state otherwise: http://www.everythingwm.com/forum/threads/updating-to-official-mango-from-7720-rtm.38064/

    Edit: Actually. on
    step .22: Go to C:/RCtoRTM and run "ISVto7720.bat" as an Administrator

    Great to hear! Just a precaution, make sure you keep a back up of your contacts to multiple sources. I just ran into a problem where quite a few of my Live contacts disappeared for no apparent reason. :(
