Joy! I finally have the update after using 'The Force'. Loving the new start screen, and the phone now makes the correct noises when receiving txts/email after 8773 stopped it from doing so...

Now to figure out what WinPho 8 handset to get...

I have a HTC Radar.  I'm on the Vodafone network.  Would the trick mention on the previous page force an update, also work for my HTC phone?

if you're impatient, and can't handle the cable trick, you can always try this at your own risk: http://windowsphonehacker.com/articles/want_windows_phone_7.8_now_try_this_easy_tool-01-31-13

according to the website:
This tool will install the official, RTM Windows Phone 7.8 update today, right now. It's easy. Just click Install 7.8, then select the desired language packages. Then wait.

Anybody know if the Windows RT "Windows Phone" app (http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-US/app/windows-phone/0e0fbaf6-fd99-4046-b494-9ce469ae3009) works with 7.8, or is it still only for WP8?

Just updated a Telecom LG-C900k.

Used the cable disconnect trick, updated from 8773 to 8779 to 8783 to 8858.

Took about 20 minutes, still seems to be working :)
