Get Pre-Nodo and Nodo Updates on UK T-Mobile branded Samsung Omnia 7 Windows Phone 7

Hi

Got a UK T-Mobile branded Windows Phone 7 handset - Samsung Omnia 7. Unfortunately I seem to have chosen the worst possible combination - T-Mobile sucks (support knows nothing about WP7 and appears blocking updates), Samsung Omnia 7 sucks (side buttons too easy to press and little support), WP7 sucks (no Adobe Flash support, no Office Commincations Serveror Lynx support and crapola Marketplace).

Nevertheless, I have to at least try to get this piece of rubbish working....I was hoping Pre-Nodo and Nodo updates would fix a few problems but whilst everyone else has got these updates, T-Mobile appear to be blocking it ?!

The T-Mobile/Samsung Omnia 7 combo appears to be the worst affetced. I tried all of the XDA and other sites' tweaks to force update such as WPChevron (no good as COM port not detected and won't go into Download Mode..possibly hole secured in my Samsung firmware), Data Connection off/on etc. etc. but nothing works.

Before this phone gets thrown in the waste basket I thought I'd ask here for help.

Any ideas please ?    ..other than binning it and getting an Android   :-))


Thanks

Since WP7 is new , it won't be perfect as usual microsoft products.

In current smartphone OS market, the availability of 3rd party applications is more important than the OS itself. Currently, I cannot see there're competitive applications on WP7. Most applications on WM6 are not compatible on WP7, so actually the ratio of application available IOS:Android:WP7 is around 80:10:1.

If Adobe Flash support is a important concern, Andorid 2.2 will be a minimum requirement you are looking for.
