Re: Updates to Windows Phone 7.8 starting today!

I'd just like to say the 'CABLE TRICK' is actually called 'A FORCED UPDATE' and that it actually does work, seeing

that I've been able to get 6 forced updates, 3 per Nokia Lumia 710 (Country Variants). I believe that there is no need for you to go to the hack website as there's no point when all you need to do is to go to Zune, click on the reserved space on the bar, and click 'Updates'. That will present you with a loading bar and as soon as that starts, all you need to do is to count to 5 and disconnect WiFi (best not to do Ethernet as that's effort, but it's up to you). If it says there's an update, connect back to WiFi AND THEN click Update or you'll have to restart the Forced Method. If it says 'Sorry, we could not check as there was some connection problem', count to 8 or 10 and that will work. If it says 'Your phone is up to date', reduce the amount of seconds you need to count for. Trust me here, IT WORKED.

 

Good Luck when trying this! You'll need to do this three times to get go to WinP 7.8. =D

No, this 'Forced Method' is an accepted method and will not f*** up your warranty in any way.

Re: Updates to Windows Phone 7.8 starting today!

Just try the Forced Update method - listed just a few posts above :squint:

 

It should still work. If not, you could change your phone and zune location to Britain or USA,

and then try to update it (US definitely does work).

Re: Updates to Windows Phone 7.8 starting today!

Hi

 

I need to know what error messages you receive with zune when forcing the update.

 

I don't know the update list but it generally does not matter what the update order is when forcing it...

 

I'm not entirely sure so someone can correct me on that...

Re: Updates to Windows Phone 7.8 starting today!

Firstly, your phone must not be connected via wifi or mobile network so close ALL connections down on your phone - not airplane mode ??

Now its disconnect wifi on comp within 5-10secs on zune (win 7 users can just access it from bottom and disconnect - win 8 users can go into airplane mode on comp - i find that fairly quicker)

And you should see the update!!


KEEEEEEEEEEP TRYING IT WILL EVENTUALLY HAPPEN!!

List the error messages when trying and I'll try to help!

Re: Updates to Windows Phone 7.8 starting today!

I have a Lumia 800, originally purchased in England, but now residing in New Zealand.

(....the phone was bought Sim free.)

My attempts failed to get the 7.8 upgrade, (10days ago in ther UK,) and I still have had no success here in New Zealand. (Zune and the phone, both insist I have the latest available software.)

 

......does the phones new location cause any upgrade issues?

 

The Nokia website is showing that the 7.8 "Country Variant" is available in New Zealand.

......for the Black and the White units, although strangely not the Cyan or Magenta units.

(Mine is Black.)

Re: Updates to Windows Phone 7.8 starting today!

I have the lumia 800 on tmobile in the UK and still no update, anyone have it on tmobile?

 

I've tried the forced method and it just says 'cant connect to find update'

 

I've emailed and tweeted Nokia, no reply on either. Very frustrating, bad form Nokia!!

Re: Updates to Windows Phone 7.8 starting today!

I have tried many days, but I seem too have bad timing.
It doesn´t work for me.
