Microsoft has resumed its rollout of updates for Samsung Windows Phone 7 handsets, after the first batch 'bricked' some devices.
The update is relatively minor, as it is intended only to facilitate later updates, but it was the first update to be rolled out for Microsoft's new platform. A couple of days after the deployment began, some people complained that the update was 'bricking' their handsets, a term used to describe an unexpected cessation of functionality.
"Starting today, we plan to resume rolling out the February update to Samsung phones," Stroh wrote on Wednesday. "Meanwhile, we're continuing to dispatch the update to other Windows Phone models. As has been the case, the software patch is being sent out on a rolling schedule. You'll see a message on your phone when it's available.
"During the past week the engineering team has pinpointed and fixed problems that were preventing a small percentage of Windows Phones from installing the February software patch. We apologize again for the delay and continue looking for ways to improve the update process."
