Looks like Rafael Rivera (of the Chevron team) got a little anxious and decided to remove his carrier information from the registry and…got an update pushed to his Focus. Although if there was something AT&T specific in the update we’ll have to see how that plays out, if this is even a NoDo update.


How did he do it? Registry hack: remove: System\Platform\DeviceTargetingInfo\MobileOperator

This is sort of happening in real time so we’ll keep you posted on if this is NoDo or preNoDo or none or some of the above as he Tweets about it. Gotta applaud him for trying this though.

UPDATE: He only got a pre-NoDo update and he tried to remove the carrier info a second time and didn’t get NoDo. He stated “Okay, bad news. NoDo not being received by my Focus. Microsoft Update server is likely blocking all Samsung devices.”


  1. Ok, now I’m start to regret my decison. This is one of of the guys that got to look behind the curtain. The spoke of impressive stuff coming and great homebrew support. Now he’s telling me, he can’t even hack his way to this update. MS should have given him this months ago.

  2. Didnt’ have time to answer your qusioetn in ep42, so I’ll answer them here1) The only free cloud computing is Google App Engine with limited DB transaction, limited bandwidth and limited requests.2) If you follow the show, you will find out we are not that much big fans of tablet, iPad2 is definitely better than others this year, but the fact that Android machines drop price rapidly might lead us to a $300USD tablet towards the middle of this year.HTC flyer is not an option since it hasn’t announce when it’ll have 3.0 update and a tablet without 3.0 is quite uselessDell Duo – windows 7 tablet edition? Big NO NO NO.Motorola Xoom is too expensive at this time, I’d buy iPad2 if I were to buy Xoom
