Telus NoDo Available Now!

The future is indeed friendly.  One of my HTC Surround wielding wp7 friends has informed me that the Nodo update is rolling out from Telus.

I will have to wait till I head home tonight and check whether or not I am one of the lucky (or unlucky guinea pigs) for the update.

Either way, if you are brave enough to upgrade, plug your phone into Zune Desktop as soon as you can.  Otherwise, you can wait for my analysis after I do my update tonight.

It is possible that the update is also out for your LG Optimus 7 users.

I'll try to dig up more information for you Bell and Rogers handset users.  If you happen to be one and have received an update or have installed the update, drop a comment here so we can spread the goodness.

*Update 1* - No Nodo yet for me.  My friend however has successfully updated his HTC Surround.  Smooth process, no problems what-so-ever.  He was copying and pasting in front of me as if to taunt me, and showing off his MAC address (damn guy). App startup seems to be faster, game starts are waaaaaaayyy faster.  Browser speed is about the same.

The Canadian map search problem, remains as I was playing with his updated phone.


  1. i plugged in and have no nodo :(
    telus and htc surround

  2. Still waiting for the update here as well. Also with a Telus and HTC Surround.

  3. If you are still waiting, here is how to force the update as per http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1015131
    1. Start Zune
    2. Turn off Data connection and Wifi on the Phone
    3. Connect the Phone with the PC (USB)
    4. Start the update search in Zune
    5. About 3 seconds later, disconnect your PC from the internet (Turn WLAN off).
    6. Zune finds NoDo-Update. Press OK.
    7. Connect to the internet again and install the update.

    Took me a few tries but it does work. Using a HTC Surround on the Telus network.

  4. Thanks Mike! I'll create a post out of your comments.

    I have tried it my several times and so far no luck. But on wpcentral, it's about 50% success rate :)

  5. It took me about 3 or 4 tries to get it to work. I found that when I disconnected from the internet RIGHT after I hit update, that is when it worked for me. Remember to turn flight mode to ON.

  6. Thanks for the info. It worked well on my LG Optimus 7 (Telus)

  7. I have a HTC surround and the nodo update doesn't install properly. I install it on Windows phone connector for mac and it keeps stopping when it is time to transfer data to the phone, the loading bar simply stop and nothing works from there ..... :( So sad :(

  8. Jean-Philippe, sorry to hear that you are having problems. I have just written up something that hopefully will help you get around your update problems.


    Be sure to share if you are able (or unable) to update after trying these Microsoft methods.
