Last week we’ve heard that Chris Walsh has developed a tool to fix “Walshed” Windows Phones which was at that moment waiting for Microsoft validation and it seems that it passed Redmond tests as the “Walshed” Phone Support Tool is now out and ready to fix your smartphone.
Chevron Team’s Chris Walsh released a custom homebrew updater which allowed users to install the latest ROM on their Windows Phones. Microsoft seriously warned about using this method and the ChevronWP7.Updater was pulled with Microsoft officially explaining the risks of using it.
Today, Chris Walsh released the “Walshed” Phone Support Tool as the official fix to get you back on track. Some users of Walshed phones received an error “80180048″ when trying to update and the tool promises to fix all that and get your phone in the “really updated” updated phase. One thing to really be careful about is when selecting the right languages installed on your phone. That’s all you have to do — of course, after downloading Windows Phone Support Tools and the “Walshed” Phone Support Tool, both available in x86 and x64 flavors at the source link.
As always, hats off to Walsh and his original tool trying to help users, to his devotion and help, to his Support Tool that gets you back on tract and last but not least, to Microsoft for being part of the process and not turning its back on users that at the end of the day only tried to have the latest and greatest of Redmond running on their phones.
