A couple of months ago, somewhere in July, Microsoft announced its latest version of windows phone that is windows phone 7.5, codenamed “Mango”. Fortunately this version has leaked and made its way onto internet. This factory leaked OS for HTC will enable the HTC users to run the long awaited “Mango” on their mobile phones.
Last month, an unmodified ROM of the final version of ‘Mango’ found its way onto the Internet. The unmodified version contained none of the software HTC loads onto its devices, namely HTC Hub, a dashboard that houses several mini-applications such as weather and stocks widgets, not even a small notepad.
For those who really don’t want to lose these tools, these customized ROMs that have leaked out today will be really fruitful, “Mango” is not only for the HTC HD7 but also for a wide range of other HTC devices that came with Windows Phone 7 pre-installed, namely the Gold (Pro), Mozart, Spark (Trophy), and Schubert (HD7).
Windows Phone 7.5, also known as ‘Mango’, is the newest version of Microsoft’s mobile operating system. It was first unveiled at a Microsoft event in April. Windows Phone 7.5 is built on the foundation of Windows Phone 7, which itself was a complete departure from previous versions of Windows Mobile. Mango packs several new and useful features, which include multitasking, support for Zune SmartDJ, improved social networking integration features such as the ability to “check in” at places using Facebook places, an improved Camera app and several other smaller improvements. It is expected to progressively roll out to most Windows Phone handsets in the next few months.
Before you get your hands on “Mango”, do take care of a few things so that you do not end up with a bricked device;
- Make sure you have first removed HSPL, follow the guide to remove it. Attempting to flash the firmware of any device without removing HSPL first could permanently brick it, forever voiding its warranty.
- Before proceeding, make sure you know the exact risks and take the right precautions: be sure you run the HSPL remover utility.
- You should have at least have some experience using Windows Phone devices and have a basic understanding of its inner workings.
- If you don’t consider yourself a power user, you should instead wait until ‘Mango’ is officially pushed to your device by HTC, which should happen fairly soon.
