freitasm: That was almost three years ago...



I am not saying that it is rational, just that fear of SNAFU might be holding them back. Corporate health and safety, risk management fear. Meanwhile some of the biggest advocates for the platform are left in the cold...

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 :)
