ChevronWP7 NoDo Updater released, allows easy NoDo updating

Chris Walshie, as previously reported has released a simple application that allows you to update your Windows Phone 7 device without any manual work such as disconnecting internet,etc. He used the Windows Phone support tools which Microsoft released yesterday to do this trick. Here is the update process he blogged today,

All you need to do is run the ChevronWP7.Updater.exe console app and follow the prompts.

Make sure you select the RIGHT language for your device. To double check what your default language is, go to Settings > Keyboard and if your selected language is displayed in the Console app, you’re good to select it. If it isn’t in the list, DON’T flash it just yet.

Now, download the following files.

Windows Phone Support Tools

ChevronWP7.Updater

Once you’ve installed the support tools and extracted the ChevronWP7.Updater.zip to the desktop, plug your phone in and wait 30 seconds.

Now start ChevronWP7.Updater.exe (this should kill Zune) and follow the prompts.

If you’re updating from Version 7004, you need to run the Updater TWICE, this needs the preUpdate before we can flash NoDo.

Again, if your language isn’t in the Chevron updater, DON’T attempt to update your phone. Some of the applications won’t work otherwise.

Download the tools from his blog.

Please note the process is one-way, and Chris takes no responsibility for any damage caused.
