09 chevronwp7While it wasn’t unexpected, it looks like using the unofficial Windows Phone 7 updater we talked about previously will have some unwanted consequences. Microsoft has made it known that folks who use the ChevronWP7 updater will not be able to receive official updates in the future. Apparently the program puts the phone into a state where it can’t receive regular updates in the future. It is uncertain if this is just a scare tactic to make users wait for the official update, or it’s the truth. The only way they will be able to receive official updates again in the future would be through a hard reset of the phone. But if the Chevron team continues to deliver the updates in a timely fashion, most people will see no problem with not receiving official updates – as long as they have the features right? Will you be using the ChevronWP7 tool to update your Windows Phone 7 device after reading about this announcement?
