Nodo Update for Samsung Focus

I Plan to Stick Around

Hi Rogers,


As I stated in another thread I thought i'd ask the question here, we know that tomorrow (29/03/2011) Telus will be releasing the NoDo update to Windows Phone 7 devices, and have even put out a press release why hasn't there been any transparency from Rogers regarding the Nodo update and why hasn't there been any information put out to users about this?


Any information would be greatly appreciated.

For those who don't know about the update this is what the update is bringing:


  • Copy & paste. You asked for it—now it's here. Just tap a word and drag the arrows to copy and paste it on your phone. You can copy text from emails, text messages, web pages, and Office Mobile documents, and paste it anywhere you can type.
  • Faster apps and games. Nobody likes to wait. That's why we've whittled down the time it takes for apps and games to start up and resume. It's all part of our focus on getting you to the things you love, easier and faster.
  • Better Marketplace search. We've streamlined Marketplace search to make it easier to find specific apps, games, or music. Press the Search button in the Apps or Games section of Marketplace and you'll see only apps or games in the results. Press Search in the Music section of Marketplace to search just the music catalog.
  • Other Marketplace improvements. We've improved the stability of Marketplace while you download apps. We've also improved the experience of downloading apps larger than 20 megabytes, upgrading from trial apps to paid apps, sharing links to apps via email, sorting Xbox LIVE games by release date, and creating an Xbox LIVE account from within the Games Hub.
  • Wi-Fi improvements. We now display your phone's Media Access Control (MAC) address in Settings
  • Outlook improvements. We've improved the experience of viewing iPhone photo attachments you receive from a non-Exchange-based email account (such as a Google Mail, Hotmail, or Yahoo! Mail account), using the Global Address List (GAL) when connecting to Exchange Server 2003 using Exchange ActiveSync, and working with email display names that contain brackets (for example, "David Alexander [Contoso]").
  • Facebook integration. We've improved the experience of syncing Facebook accounts
  • Audio improvements. We've improved the experience of using a Bluetooth headset to make calls when you're playing music or videos.
  • Other performance improvements. This month's update also includes software from several phone manufacturers that improves the performance of specific models. Naturally, if you don't have one of the affected models, we won't install this portion of the update on your phone.

you cant get the update from anywhere else except the windows update server. carriers will block that ip address until the updates are verified to work and the download is successful.

Still waiting for NoDo here in London Ontario.


It's been over a week since Rogers stated that the staggered updates were rolling out. How many Focus users are there really? Apart from the carriers holding up the process since January, the requirement to stage the rollout of a small number of updates seems a bit odd.


Re: Nodo Update for Samsung Focus

It looks as if certain WP7 phones are getting slightly modified versions of NoDo, which would explain the reasoning behind the delayed updates. The phone carriers seem to be making tweaks to the radios, or other services, offered through their own network. Obviously Microsoft has nothing to do with this, so the delay really rests on the shoulders of the carrier.

Re: Nodo Update for Samsung Focus



Good news!


We can confirm that the WP7 NoDO update available through Zune has been certified to work on the Rogers device.


To update your device simply connect to Zune and the upgrade will be installed. 


I hope this resolves everyones questions and concerns.
