Samsung devices are great besides one small problem: Samsung sucks as a software company.
While the hardware is great – every software related aspect causes issues: Android customizations are horrible, Windows Phone 7 apps are bad, and the worst part: every update to the operating system causes issues!
I've been dealing with the latest security update for a few days now and finally came up with the solution – so if you own a Samsung Omnia device – this may interest you:
How to fix the Samsung Omnia 7 problem when trying to Update to the latest WP7 build (7392):
If your Samsung Omnia 7 device fails to update (using Zune) to build 7392 (security patch) – here is a simple solution for the update problem:
When trying to run the latest Windows Phone 7 update – the phone gets stuck on step 6 trying to reboot itself. The phone screen shows the Samsung Omnia logo and nothing happens for quite a while.
Run the tool, connect your phone using the instructions in the PDF file and after 2-3 simple steps the fix is installed.
Connect your smartphone to Zune again and run the OS update – this time you will notice that step 6 is working fast and you will reach the next steps in no time.
