How to: force official Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango” update onto your device

Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango” started rolling out on Tuesday but not all devices will get the update notification straight away.

There’s a simple way to force the Mango update to your device as long as it’s currently in the delivering phase. WPCentral reports that the update will process in three stages. Microsoft updates handsets to 7392 then through to 7403 and finally 7720, the RTM build of Windows Phone 7.5. Thanks to WPCentral there’s some rather simple steps to follow to kick start this progress if you’re not seeing the update yet:

  1. Connect your Windows Phone to a PC and launch the Zune client
  2. Click on Phone/Settings/Update. Allow the software to tell you whether an update is available. If so, skip this guide. If not continue to the next step.
  3. Click the update button again, and this time immediately disconnect your computer from the internet (some people have better luck waiting 1-2 seconds). Do this by pulling the Ethernet cable, disabling Wi-Fi and ensuring there is no Internet connection.
  4. After around 30 seconds or so you should receive a notification that an update is available. This is 7392, a post-NoDo security update.
  5. Connect your machine back to the internet and continue with the update process through the Zune client
  6. After 7392 is fully installed, you may receive a notification that another update is available. If so, install Mango now. If not, proceed to the next step.
  7. If the second update isn’t popping up on its own, repeat steps 3-5, causing the 7403 update to appear.
  8. Install 7403
  9. After 7403 is installed, Zune should automatically start installing 7720, Mango. If it doesn’t happen automatically, force it using steps 3-5 once again
  10. Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango” installed
