While we had previously explained on how to update Windows Phone 7 using a combination of hacks, modification, and dexterity, a new tool is available that makes the process a little less tedious. Developed by Chris Walshie, a member of the ChevronWP7 team, ChevronWP7.Updater brings Windows Phone 7 updates to your device regardless of carrier, region, etc. The much simplified method goes as follows:
- Install Microsoft's Windows Phone Support Tools
- Download and extract the ChevronWP7.Updater file
- Connect your phone
- Run the tool and follow the on screen suggestions
No difficult timing, no debranding, and you don't even need a developer unlocked device. Head on over to the developer's site for the downloads and full instructions.
