Windows Phone 7.8 update halted, massive software issues to blame

Issues with software force Microsoft to suspend all Windows Phone 7.8 updates

Back at the end of January, I reported that Windows Phone 7.8 was beginning to roll out to Nokia devices. That roll out is nowhere near complete and those waiting on the upgrade may have to wait even longer.

Today Microsoft announced that it was forced to suspend the update after some large issues with the software arose. This comes just after Vodafone suspended the update to all of its subscribers in Germany.


No information has been released on what exactly the issue is, but it must be significant if Microsoft felt the need to suspend the update. There is speculation however that the issue lies in some Windows Phone 7.8 live tiles refuse to update. Microsoft says that they are working on a fix now and that the updates should resume shortly.
