Tango (8773) Update for Samsung Omnia W in India

Recently Samsung has started roll out for Tango Update. However there is no notification for upgrade while Windows Phone is connected to Zune. From various online sources, I tried to force upgrade my Samsung Omnia W following below steps. If anybody is interested they can also follow these steps at their OWN RISK.

Steps to force Tango Upgrade-
•    Set phone to Flight Mode which will turn off Phone Network, WiFi, and Bluetooth.
•    Connect your phone to PC via USB cable. Zune application will open.
•    Go to Phone by clicking “Phone” symbol.
•    Go to Settings, and click update.
•    While Zune displays searching for update disconnect internet connection to PC after about 2-3 seconds.
•    If above steps are right, there should be prompt about new update 8112 available. (Repeat above step if there is no prompt for update available). [Image 01]
•    Update phone with 8112.
•    Follow above steps again. This time update prompt for 8773 would be displayed. [Image 02]
•    After 8773 update is complete, Zune will also Update Omnia W with some updates from Samsung. [Image 03]

      Hi Pragyan, I didn’t notice any battery related issues. If I switch off data, I get 2 days of battery life. And even if data is ON with 3G, I get 1 complete day. What was your experience with Tango?
