SharePoint 2013 Service Pack 1 Withdrawn

Microsoft has withdrawn Service Pack 1 from general public availability as it will block or won't allow future public or cumulative updates  from installing. There are no other issues reported as per the notes. They are going to release a new version of Service Pack in future no timeline defined for this yet.

There are no clear notes about how to roll back for clients who have already implemented it on their farms.

The download links are broken.

A call with MS Support team may guide them on next steps stay tuned.

Service Pack 1 Update on 08/04/2014:  Checked with  Microsoft's Technical Account Manager and subsequently a call with Suppor Team. "Guidance is not to rollback as the existing Service Pack 1 won't affect anything apart from stopping future upgrades. Once the re-released version of Service Pack 1 / hotfix is available , customers can install it. There is no ETA on the release date" .

"We have recently uncovered an issue with this Service Pack 1 package that may prevent customers who have Service Pack 1 from deploying future public or cumulative updates. As a precautionary measure, we have deactivated the download page until a new package is published. "


Service Pack 1 Update: Microsoft has re-released a newer version of the service pack with the fix i.e. to allow installing future CU's. The challenge we had was to re-install newer version of service pack 1 on all of our SharePoint Farms which comprises of 40 plus servers. I would have expected Microsoft to release a hot-fix for customers who have already installed Service Pack instead of going for a full blown deployment of Service Pack. This caused enormous time to coordinate the deployment of service pack going through CAB, deployment etc.
