    Forcing Windows 7.5 Mango Update for Sprint HTC Arrive

    This update provides added functionality and is considered a major upgrade. The rollout begin about a week ago, however the device I got wasn't ready for it apparently. I started to check my options and came upon what seemed like a good method of getting it done.

    Read the entire post before trying it yourself...

    From PhoneArena

    The Windows Phone Mango update has been highly anticipated and will surely breathe some new life into the HTC Arrive which is currently the only offering of its kind on Sprint. The support page doesnít call the update by name but judging by the laundry list of improvements that can only be found in the latest version of Microsoftís mobile

    this is most definitely Mango.

    After updating your HTC Arrive you can expect to have multitasking, Internet Explorer 9 with support for HTML5, improved live tiles, Bing enhancements and so much more. This update is only available through the Zune Software Client

    Force Mango update early through Zune software and avoid frostbite

    Mango has started rolling out today

    , but only 10% of eligible customers are actually scheduled to receive the update on day one. The entire process may take up to four weeks. Thatís practically a month. I donít know about you, but my go-go lifestyle doesnít allow for that kind of waiting.

    Thankfully there is a solution. No, I donít mean to bury yourself under the snow and ask a friend to thaw you out after four weeks are up. That could totally backfire! Instead, why not trick Zune into giving you the update right away? The process has worked our staff and many of our readers, even European ones.

    Before we begin, keep in mind that a total of three updates must be installed on the path to Mango: 7392, 7403, and 7720, which is Mango itself. The process will take a while. Some people may already have 7392, in which case things will move a bit faster. I also recommend removing any music and unessential apps from the phone beforehand, as that can significantly cut down on the time it takes to backup and restore the phone's data.

    Steps to force a Mango update on phones for which Mango has started rolling out:
    1. Connect your Windows Phone to a PC and launch the Zune software
    2. Click on Phone > Settings > Update. Allow the software to tell you whether an update is available. If so, skip this guide. If not continue to the next step.
    3. Time to force the update. Click another button (any of the options above or below the word Update). Then click the Update button again, and this time disconnect your computer from the internet after 1-2 seconds. Do this by pulling out the Ethernet cable, disabling Wi-Fi, etc. If it says your phone is already up to date, you didn't disconnect quickly enough and need to try this step again.
    4. Wait 30 seconds or so and Zune should display a notification that an update is available. This is 7392, the first Mango pre-update.
    5. Now reconnect to the internet and continue with the update process through the Zune software.
    6. After 7392 is fully installed, you may receive a notification that another update is available. If so, install it now. If not, proceed to the next step.
    7. If the second update isn't popping up on its own, repeat steps 3-5, causing the 7403 update to appear.
    8. Install 7403, brave reader. Speeding right along, isn't it?
    9. Mango time! At this point, Zune should automatically start installing the last update, 7720, aka Mango. If it doesn't happen automatically, force it like we did in previous steps.
    10. This last step is very important! Celebrate your phoneís new found Mango status by purchasing a mango smoothie at your nearest Smoothie King, Jamba Juice, Baskin Robbins, or similar establishment.
    Thatís it! Let us know how this works out for you.

    this is how it worked for me after a lot of trials

    I couldn't get any of the previous mentioned to work but I this is what finally did.

    turn off phone cellular data in settings
    turn off computer wlan
    leave phone wifi "on" and connect to computer, have phone wifi page open
    go to update settings and hit update button. 4 seconds turn off phone wifi (I actually counted 1 when I hit the mouse button, then 2-3-4)
    wait for notification of update and then turn on computer wlan.
    once connected back to the internet, hit update button on screen
