FAQ Thread - Beyond technical issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi folks,

    This is a catch-all place where I'll post and update common questions that get raised about the 'Mango' Beta 2 pre-release update. Joanna and her team have the technical points pretty well covered; the point of this thread is more a catch-all for more meta-points that aren't relevant in the technical posts in this forum.

    Confidentiality

    Q: What are the confidentiality requirements of my participation in this pre-release program?
    By participating in this pre-release program, you are agreeing to not share the ‘Mango’ pre-release device image, binary dumps, or the applications used to update to this pre-release image, with third parties.



    Supported Countries

    Q: Why don’t all Windows Phone developers get Mango?
    Every registered Windows Phone developer is being given the opportunity to install Mango on a developer unlocked phone for testing purposes. The Mango distribution process for developers began on 6/29 with early access for developers in 23 major markets. We view this as beta period for the distribution process. Over the coming weeks, we will further improve the distribution process, add support for additional countries and enable developers in countries where we are unable to offer technical support to also install Mango at their discretion.

    Q: What sort of technical support are developers getting as part of the Mango distribution process? 
    As part of the Mango distribution process for developers that began on 6/29, developers in 23 major markets received an invitation to install Mango and full support for one device. Microsoft will help address issues associated with the installation of beta Mango code with support for a single device up to and including replacing a device rendered inoperable as a result of the installation process. Invitations and support will be extended to developers in additional markets over the coming weeks. Developers in markets where full support is not available, but who still choose to install Mango, will have access to support via this public forum.

     

     

     

    Supported Devices

    Q: What retail devices are supported for this pre-release program?
    All retail MO/OEM devices are supported as part of this program. There had been one exception (a late version of the Samsung Focus (v1.4, also referred to as the Focus "dot")), but support for that device was added on July 19.


    Invitations

    Q: What if I didn't get an invitation?
    We very much appreciate your passion to evaluate your application on 'Mango'. If you haven't received an invitation, one of two things have likely happened:

    • The email is in your junk mail/spam folder: This has happened to the vast majority of folks who have contacted me/us. Please please please check your junk mail filter for an invitation - the e-mail would be sent from 'msftconn@microsoft.com' with the subject line of 'Invitation from Microsoft Connect'
    • You recently registered: Please be patient; we're sending out invitations at least twice a week for newly registered developers. 

    Check the next question below (Who has gotten an invitation so far?); if believe you should have been in that group, but you haven't gotten a request and believe you qualified, either open a App Hub service ticket or submit a request on this web form - we will need your registered name, ISV ID, account type, company name, and the contact e-mail address as it is currently set on App Hub. All of this information can be found on the 'account info' section of your App Hub profile.


    Q: Who has gotten an invitation?
    We've sent invitations to registered Windows Phone developers who had active and vetted App Hub accounts as of Monday, Sept 26, 2011.

    Q: I joined App Hub after the last membership cut-off date you sent invitations for; when will I get my invitation?
    Invitations are no longer going out. The pre-release program is now closed per the 'Windows Phone 7.5 Updating OS from Beta 2 to RTM' thread.

    Q: How about students accounts?
    We aren't treating student accounts any differently than non-student accounts.

  • Q: What are the confidentiality requirements of my participation in this pre-release program?
    By participating in this pre-release program, you are agreeing to not share the ‘Mango’ pre-release device image, binary dumps, or the applications used to update to this pre-release image, with third parties.



    So we are allowed to talk about the actual features included in the update? The original wording said we couldn't say a thing about the beta. This new wording, however, makes it sound like the confidentiality agreement only applies to the OS image, code, and anything else that was provided to us. Essentially: we can talk about it, but we can't give it to someone else or share the exact method in which we got it.

    Sorry for all the questions, but I want to make sure the confidentiality agreement isn't broken.

  • I'd really like to send you an email but i cant since i dont know your adress. Any chance of getting that?
    However i've got a student account (verified and everything) for a couple of months and live in austria - should have gotten an email but havent. Looking forward to getting one in the future.

  • Mr. Simpkins,

    First, thanks for this Discussion.  It gave me the answer I needed regarding what I should do about my invitation.

    I don't see your email address anywhere, so I hope you're monitoring this forum.
    If you can post it, or point me to it, I'll be happy to send an email to you with my app hub info.

    -thanks

  • Hi,

    Anyone got Simpkins email id yet? 
    Actually, I am registered user since June first week but I have submitted first app recently. 
    Does it mean that I will be considered for an invitation in next batch? 

    I am so much excited about getting Mango ASAP. 
    Thanks.

  • General note - updated the Qs.

    Also, second note as a reminder that I'm off on a holiday weekend, and to remind folks that I likely won't be working on these until Tuesday morning.

  • Hi Cliff,

    Thanks for the time you spent to help developers.

    I sent you an email by your blog's contact form before you update the thread.
    In few words I don't receive the invitation or I drop it when i clean my inbox. I want to know if the invitation can be resent ?

    Do you want I send you another mail on the thread's mail address ?

    Cordially

    PS : Sorry for my poor english I'm a french developer.
    Monday, July 4, 2011 7:50 PM
  • I know folks are anxious for invites, and I'm glad folks are excited to get 'Mango' on their developer phones - I'm out for the holiday weekend. Mid-day Friday (my time), I responded to all the e-mails that I had received thus far around missing invitations. I'll likely go through the next batch when I'm back in the office tomorrow.

  • Hey Cliff,

    What's your email.  I must have the mango and want to start creating some apps for when it comes out, and just signed up on June 29.

    "Can you know the mighty ocean? Can you lasso a star from the sky? Can you say to a rainbow... 'Hey, stop being a rainbow for a second'? No! Such is Mango!"
    -Mango-


    Tuesday, July 5, 2011 5:33 PM
  • I've updated the above.

    Invitations have now been sent out to all countries to developers who were registered on App Hub and verified, as of June 28th. The next wave of invitations will go out on Thursday to developers that have registered (and been vetted) since then - this will include developers and students.
    Tuesday, July 5, 2011 7:42 PM
  • Thanks Cliff.  Should have known it was the standard business email setup at most companies.
    Tuesday, July 5, 2011 9:12 PM
  • Cliff,
      An insight to being able to actually test the apps on the phone. I installed Mango and all of the SDKs, but when I try to run the app for VS2010 to the "Windows Phone Device" I get the standard
    "Error 1 Failed to connect to device as it is developer locked. For details on developer unlock, visit http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=195284."
    My phone is registered for the developer unlock (since I would not have been able to install Mango if it wasn't), so what am I missing to be able to actually test my WP7.1 apps on my development phone?

    Tuesday, July 5, 2011 9:39 PM
  • You should ask this question in another discussion, as this discussion says "non-technical".

    The answer is, however, I believe you didn't re-unlock the phone after installing Mango, since, as stated, it removes the developer lock.

    The way I did this is to go to the app hub and remove my phone, then went to the dev unlock tool and ran it.

    That's in the instructions.

    I hope that helps.

  • Hi Cliff,

    When I download the mango beta onto my phone, what happens when the official mango release is out? Can I upgrade directly from the beta or do I have to revert to a NoDo backup and then install? 

    Thanks,
    Squeesh
    Wednesday, July 6, 2011 12:47 AM
  • @squ

    This discussion really isn't for technical question.  Those should be asked in another discussion

    the answer is in the Mango update instructions.  Please read them fully and don't skip any steps or take anything for granted.





    The only supported way to get the actual Mango release is to restore your backup.  You can't upgrade to anything directly from the Beta.

    these details are in the instructions.  Don't lose your backup!

  • Hi there,

    I'm a huge fan of WP7 and I'd love to be a developer for this amazing platform.

    i registered myself as a developer, but unfortunately and because I'm living in Kuwait, i can't get my device registered and developer unlocked.

    i received the Mango update invitation yesterday but i can't make use of it.

    any idea if there's anyway i can get the update? and start developing apps for WP7?
    Thursday, July 7, 2011 6:18 AM
  • @Hmoud Adel= how is that happening? i thought they send mango invite only developers from supported countries?! anyway but I have similar issue. my developer account is still pending for approval but i received mango invitation and I am not sure if i can install it now. 
    Thursday, July 7, 2011 1:23 PM
  • When I sent the invitations, I sent them to all developers who were verification pending and approved. I did this so that folks could install the beta as soon as GeoTrust gives you a green light.

    While I understand that this may be a tease, having the invite and not be able to install it (just yet), I was err'ing on the side of not having to make folks wait a couple times. :)

    Do folks want me to change this?
    Thursday, July 7, 2011 4:38 PM
  • Hi Cliff,

    the way you do is absolutely helpful but I and people like me were just curios while why i have invitation although it says i cant without verification by geotrust. All needed is that explanation and now i know i have to wait geotrust :) I have 2 questions. are we waiting only geotrust to confirm our identity or 
    also our first app to be confirmed (for student account). my app is in 4th day still pending for test but geotrust I have just sent yesterday evening. 

    thanks again.
    Thursday, July 7, 2011 4:52 PM
  • when the invitation email arrived in my inbox, it was the best moment in my life! please don't stop it ='D

    but in my case, is there a way to get approved?

    I'll be thrilled to be the first WP7 devoloper from Kuwait so I'd appreciate it if you can help making this dream happen.

    Thank you Cliff.

    Friday, July 8, 2011 2:32 PM
  • In order to help identify lost/outstanding invites, I need at least your App Hub 'company name' and registered first/last name, and email address helps out a lot...I'm unable to look it up based on your forum profile. :)

    As mentioned in root note, send me an e-mail (first name dot last name at microsoft) or open a support ticket via App Hub.

  • Supported Devices

    Q: What retail devices are supported for this pre-release program?
    All retail MO/OEM devices are supported as part of this program, with one exception - a late version of the Samsung Focus (v1.4, also referred to as the Focus "dot"). The Samsung Focus will be supported device in mid-July. Developers with a Samsung Focus 1.4 device are asked to be patient until that time.



    I wonder if it includes people who already installed NoDo on Samsung Foci rev 1.4 and at the moment are kinda stuck in nowhere land

  • Hi Cliff,

    May be a very basic question:

    Is it possible to downgrade our phone back to Windows Phone 7.0 after doing an upgrade to Mango? Since I only have one phone with me so I am not sure if I should really upgrade it or not.

    Thanks in advance :-)

    Thanks and Regards
    Nishant Rana
    Wednesday, July 13, 2011 2:43 AM
  • You can downgrade.  Before mango is installed it makes a full backup of your phone using the new beta Zune 4.8.  You will see an option to restore your phone back to the date you upgraded in the updates section.

  • Haven't gotten my invite yet s I'm just gonna do this the xda way don't know why it takes so long just to send out invites. Don't they have some sort of automated messaging system.
    Friday, July 15, 2011 3:32 PM

  • @swan.se - You're still pending. You need to trigger a vetting on your account.

    @econet - An invite went to you on Jul 13 5:02pm EDT to your live.de address

    @Noobveloper - I wish there were an easier way to do this as well. I would much prefer to have flipped a switch and have the link appear on folks' developer dashboard, as some other folks do this. I know and understand that a lot of folks are frustrated with the time it's taken to get the invitation out (and the rate at which invites have been caught by junk mail filters or old e-mail addresses); and I've tried to be as responsive as I can given many other things also going on so that we can get the RC and RTM of the tools out the door. And we do appreciate folks' patience, and their anxiousness to experience the update.
    For those interested, the primary issue behind this is that all of our developer downloads are completely public and available to everyone; we don't lock down and restrict our tools or documents or event recordings within our developer portal. As such, providing a limited distribution to the this pre-release required making use of our Connect channel in order to provide it to developers while still remaining compliant with partner agreements. I've made asks of engineering to provide a distribution channel for releases like this via App Hub in the future - I'm hoping it's not ruled a 'Won't fix'.

  • Hey Cliff.
    Nice post, and thanks for clarifying some issues for us.

    I've had Mango Beta 2 running on my device for quite a while now, but one "issue" that's yet to be answered (I couldn't find anything at least)

    With the access to Mango Beta 2, a lot of new countries got access to the Marketplace with applications, games and the likes. But as of writing, the Norwegian app marketplace sport some 10-20 apps. Far far faaaaaaar from the 25k apps that are available on the global established marketplace.
    Are there any plans to open up for more apps on these marketplaces or are we stuck with our free weather, leveling, shopping list apps before the launch of Mango RTM build? I mean, I can't even edit my XBox Live Avatar from my phone as it requires an additional app from the marketplace that isn't available in my country, nor check out what applications might compete with the ones I'm developing.

    Also, is there an official "Known Bugs & Issues" overview somewhere that we can publish our findings?

    Take care and thanks a lot for this Beta preview. :)

  • Now that the focus 1.4 update is out will we be able to try the mango beta?
    What about people like me who already had the 7392 update installed ? I never managed to install the mango beta update because i can't make a backup...

  • Hi Cliff,

    What exactly do you mean by vetted? Do we have to have the GeoTrust verification done? If so, it may be a while with my Dreamspark account as I'm won't be ready to publish an app for awhile.

    Can I create a simple "Hello World" list app and have it certified in the meantime?
    Wednesday, July 20, 2011 7:37 PM
  • I submitted a dummy app to trigger the account verification (make it apaid one so it doesn''t count towards your free app quota). There are a load of threads on this and that seemed to be the consensus best option

  • Hello Cliff,

    first of all, I'd like to express my gratitude for your concern about invitations. How is it going with fixing the feed? 
    I am not very old member of developers community, but I would like to ask for an invitation to start digging, since the feed is down.

    : Who has gotten an invitation so far?
    We've sent invitations to registered Windows Phone developers who had active and vetted App Hub accounts as of the morning of Mon, July 18, 2011.

    I got my developer status on Friday, July the 15th, 2011. I did not get an invitation yet and wanted to ask if I was simply forgotten or if there are other reasons?

    Let's just hope that the feed is repaired, I'd like my shot at Mango too.

  • Okay, I just sent out a number of invites to everyone who posted onto this thread and that I could find an e-mail address for - either because you listed it here or because you were in the last developer extract that I had. Check your inbox/junkmail folder. :)

    I'm also asking the App Hub folks for the ability to get profile access via the App Hub site (at least temporarily) so we can minimize some of this madness. :)

    Folks who I don't have an e-mail address for are L480, Spartan32393, and WReXus.

    Sorry for the delay; hope you guys get the invite and get jamming. I swear this process will be better next time we do this.

    Thanks; thankfully Brandon has been pretty understanding - hopefully he gets a round of applause for a great manager. :)

    That being said, all you guys are totally worth what needs to be done to get you guys enabled. I firmly believe that our app ecosystem (and therefore the devs behind it) will make or break this platform, and we're trying to do everything we can to give you the tools you need to build your best apps.

    BTW - TmoT - okay; got you covered.

    Would the developer get access to RTM build so we can update the phone with the new build?

    Thanks


    Access to RTM? Probably not - as mentioned early on in the process, you will need to get your final 'RTM' OS update from your MO/OEM so that you can be in a supported state when 'Mango' goes live.

    That being said, we are working on getting folks access to an image that is 'app plat API complete' so that you can build and run your apps against a near-final image of the OS. More on this coming soon; stay tuned. :)

  • I've been on App Hub as a paying developer since May and I still haven't received my invititation. A little disappointed about this...

    You would be surprised how many folks received the invite on the 29th or 30th and it got caught in their spam filter. Please check your spam filter for a mail from Microsoft Connect; it's likely there.

    We had a brief conversation over twitter (I'm MartinNr5) about my invite to the latest Mango build and you asked me to post here for an invite as the new developer feed from AppHub is broken at the moment.

    [CRS-Removed PII-Aug-1-2011].

    In case you still send out invitations I'd appreciate one as well.

    [CRS-Removed PII-Aug-1-2011]

    (And yes, I noticed you saying that you actually sent enough invitations. Thus, not expecting anything. Just thought you might feel the desperate need to dig through even more posts ;-)

    Where does Cliff state this? I "spoke" to him just 12 hours ago over twitter where he recommended me to post in this thread.

    Just curious so that I haven't missed anything. :)

    Now that I quote him I just noticed he actually didn't use the word "enough" at all (thought it was "sent off _enough_ invites...").

    Guess my darkest fears were reading this specific post instead of my eyes.

    Thanks for pointing out that one - yet I hope "reading posts appropriately" is not on the "early access qualification" list :-)

  • I can't Developer unlock my phone after Mango (7712) update either.

    I uninstalled Zune and Windows Phone SDK, then installed latest versions that came with the Mango Refresh.
    Updated to Mango 7712 OK.
    Setup Phone Sync Profile in Zune - all works fine.
    Deleted my phone registration details in App Hub Profile. (Waited over 15 minutes before retry).
    Never used ChevronWP7 but checked Hosts file anyway.

    But Windows Phone Developer Registration tool says "Unable to connect to phone. Please check that Zune software is running and that Zune's sync partnership with your phone has been established".

    I can't get any further. I've rebooted PC and phone many times but still cannot get Phone Registration Tool to see my phone.

    Please help!

  • I've sent an invite to those who had e-mail addresses in the request up to this point.

    Tomorrow I'll set up a survey to help make this process better (bless those inspirational shower moments) and better protect folks' email addresses.
