Microsoft Issues Serious Warning Using ChevronWP7.Updater?


Monday the ChevronWP7.Updater brought the ability to update Windows Phones to the latest build for all those who lost their patience in waiting for the update notification.

A lot has happened since then: the blog post of Chris Walsh no longer has a valid link to the ChevronWP7.Updater — as in it was pulled! You might have a déjà-vu as the ChevronWP7 unlocker used to jailbreak smartphones was also pulled as the team was in talks with Redmond.

Apparently, Microsoft warns users related to the usage of the ChevronWP7.Updater as it allegedly will put an end to the smartphone’s ability in receiving future updates. According to Redmond, re-flashing the device with an original stock ROM would be the only solution to revert from the situation created.

Since Windows Phone 7 stock ROMs aren’t available officially the way we got used to them being on manufacturer’s websites back in the days of Windows Mobile, you can either stick with NoDO forever or send it back to the factory? What do you think about such an alleged stance?
