Let's face it, waiting for official releases is awful. We're constantly getting news, images and teasers on everything that's on the horizon, but the actual release date for this stuff is always farther away than we would like. We've been seeing info coming out for Windows Phone Mango for quite a while now, and just when we thought we might see the update pushed out early, it turns out September 1st is just a rumor
, so we still don't know when the official update will roll out. Luckily for everyone, the dev community over at XDA loves to get their hands on things early and send it our way.
So, if you just can't wait, the official Mango RTM build 7720 has leaked out and is ready for unauthorized updating. Now, we aren't advocating the unauthorized update, and anything you do to your device is your responsibility, but we know that there will be those of you out there who have been waiting for this. The instructions seem a bit involved, so don't expect an easy flash experience. The early reports are showing success in updates on all devices and networks, so if you want to give it a shot, the files and instruction links are below.
