Microsoft says the use of homebrew techniques to update your Windows Phone may void your phone warranty

Yesterday, Microsoft warned Windows Phone 7 users against the use of homebrew techniques to update their Windows Phones.

According to a Microsoft rep in a blog post;

If you attempt one of these workarounds, we can’t say for sure what might happen to your phone because we haven’t fully tested these homebrew techniques. You might not be getting the important device-specific software we would typically deliver in the official update. Or your phone might get mis-configured and not receive future updates.

It’s even possible your phone might stop working properly. Bottom line: unsupported workarounds put you in uncharted territory that may void your phone warranty. We’ve made a lot of progress in recent weeks, so I urge you to please be patient for just a bit longer and wait for your official update notification to arrive.

Users both within and outside U.S. who are yet to receive the March NoDo WP7 update, click here for the Microsoft official delivery schedule for  the update.
