Carrier de-branding can give you the 7392 update [Homebrew]

With the latest ‘update’ being released to Windows Phone users today, it seems that the update has yet to hit the American carriers (at least in full). We can confirm that several T-Mobile and AT&T users have yet to receive notification for the new update (7392), so we decided to do some investigating on our end for possible ways to attain it. Keep in mind that this update adds no new features, aside from fixes to fraudulent security certificates. Chris Walsh seems to think otherwise, but the jury’s still out.

However, if you’re anal about being up-to-date, and absolutely must have the updates to the security certificates (and have an unlocked phone), you just need to tweak the MobileOperator registry key (just like with NoDo). Navigate over to HKLMSystemPlatformDeviceTargetingInfoMobileOperator in the mobilie registry, clear the key (remember what’s in there!), and check for an update in Zune. After installing, go back into your registry and put the original info back in the key. As a general disclaimer, we’re not responsible if this breaks your phone, etc, but if you absolutely need the update, odds are that you don’t care.


For those that use the method, let us know about your success (or failure). Otherwise, if you’re in the US and received the update natively, let us know as well below in the comments.
