Samsung Windows Phone 7 owners phones “bricked” after update

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on February 22nd, 2011

Here’s some not so good news for Microsoft. After releasing the Windows Phone 7 update this week, it looks like some users out there have ended up with a bricked phone, having no way to fix it except for a factory reset or returning it to the store.

Apparently it is only affecting a small number of people, but what is your definition of a small number? Hopefully they can resolve this issue very quickly and take care of these users. Interestingly, this was only a minor update, so we hope that Microsoft will learn from it’s mistakes here.

WD TV Live Bricked by Firmware Updates

WD TV Live Bricked by Firmware UpdatesIf you have a WD TV Live HD media box, you might want to think twice about downloading a recent firmware update from Western Digital. Forum complaints report nothing but a blank screen after downloading the v1.101.12 update.

Western Digital knows about the problem and has pulled the update from its site. Until the issue is fixed, it is better to stay clear of that “upgrade now” screen until the next patch arrives. Hopefully WD is taking care of those people affected.
