Samsung Omnia 7 hangs on reboot while getting the 7.0.7392.0 patch for Windows Phone 7

The latest update for the Windows Phone 7 appeared yesterday (May 17th, 2011) when I docked my Samsung Omnia 7 to my Samsung Netbook NC10 to get the latest podcasts via Zune. This update was predominantly a security update to protect against some third party web vulnerabilities. An article on the update can be found at

However, the process appeared to hang on reboot. The phone would not get passed the “Samsung Omnia 7” start up screen no matter how long I left it. If I took out the battery and replaced it, my phone would start as normal but every attempt at the update failed. I eventually gave up and got on with my working day.

However, a quick internet search this evening came up with a Microsoft Knowledge Base article published yesterday at

I followed the procedure described and was able to complete the patch update without further issues.

This is the first time that I have had a problem with a Windows Phone 7 update but all is well in the world again!
