Samsung Focus Bugfix Update Coming Soon

Now that the ChevronWP7 Updater tool is out, letting you force NoDo onto the Windows Phone 7 handset of your choice, there’s nothing else we’re still waiting around for, right? Well, not quite. While this shortcut may get you copy-and-paste, there are still non-NoDo related updates coming down the pipeline. Chris Walsh, ChevronWP7 team member and creator of that update tool, has tweeted word that there’s a Samsung Focus-specific update in the works, including some bug fixes.

Walsh implies that they’ll be several bugs targeted, but the only one he singles out deals with Bluetooth support. We’ve seen reports of users running into garbled sound and volume swings with devices connected to the Focus, so this may be the fix Walsh mentions.

With this update supposed to land “really really soon”, it’s likely that AT&T could push it out at the same time it gets around to releasing NoDo for its users who have decided to wait for an official channel, almost certainly later this month. If you have a Focus and have been considering the universal update hack, you may want to hold off, as you’re just going to have to revert it in order to install this bugfix update.
