It goes without saying that leaks are more or less a given these days, and it does seem to look as though loose lips are ever present in the digital environment. After all, how many new products are released without anyone catching wind of it through unofficial channels a couple of decades ago? That happened very rarely, but these days, if a leak does not happen, we would deem it strange – and cry “Vaporware!” for some.
Well, as the official Windows Phone 7.5 Mango update is about to be officially released, the number of people who get their hands on the Mango builds seem to increase each day. In fact, the latest two handsets that have its Mango builds leaked would be for the HTC 7 Mozart and Samsung Omnia 7.
The Mozart leak is build 7720.68 according to the good people over at XDA, while and the Omnia 7 is an August build, being a minor update over previous versions. According to Mobiletechworld, this might “not be worth the effort (remember this is just an engineering firmware with the RTM OS code that we already have). The firmware version seems to be a tiny jump from the KC1 firmware (24188.8.131.52 vs 24184.108.40.206) and the Radio went from 24220.127.116.11 to 2418.104.22.168.”
I would say leave the leaked versions alone if you do not want to take the risk of bricking your hardware for the sake of curiosity.
