Default Microsoft Urging Users To Wait For Official Update

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://windowsteamblog.com/windows_phone/b/windowsphone/archive/2011/04/06/weekly-update-status.aspx' target='_blank'>http://windowsteamblog.com/windows_...ate-status.aspx</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"But my strong advice is: wait. If you attempt one of these workarounds, we can't say for sure what might happen to your phone because we haven't fully tested these homebrew techniques. You might not be getting the important device-specific software we would typically deliver in the official update. Or your phone might get misconfigured and not receive future updates."</em></p><p><em><img height="46" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//wpt/auto/1302189590.usr117680.png" style="border: 0;" width="305" /></em></p><p>Microsoft's Eric Hautala via the windows blog is urging users to wait for the official update rather than using a homebrew method to update. &nbsp;Eric states he understands why people would chose to go homebrew for the update but can't say for sure what the&nbsp;implications&nbsp;are of using homebrew workarounds. &nbsp;Possible potential negative impacts cited are the phone may not get device specific software, incorrect configuration resulting in missing future updates, bricking, etc. &nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p>
