Microsoft urges users to wait for the official WP7 NoDo update
Microsoft's early-adopting Windows Phone 7 customers have been eagerly awaiting the release of such functions as copy-paste and multitasking. But while Microsoft has released the so-called NoDo update, carrier testing has prevented them from getting out to all WP7 devices.

A couple days ago, we told you about a homebrew NoDo update that could bring your device up to speed well before some carriers will get around to it. But that unofficial update has prompted Microsoft to urge customers to wait patiently for the official update.

The Windows Phone Blog warns that "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."

Of course that's a fairly standard update warning, but the threat of not receiving future updates (i.e. Mango) might be enough to dissuade customers from using the homebrew solution.

Also included in the blog post is a message regarding potential update-related errors. So if you've encountered errors titled "800705B4" or "80180080", refer to the Windows Phone Blog link below for troubleshooting info.
