Windows Phone 7.8 update rollout started for Nokia handsets but others can also update now manually

Nokia has just started its Windows Phone 7.8 update roll out today for the Lumia 900, Lumia 800, 710, 610 and 510. Other manufacturers have yet to announced any date but as it’s usually the case you can already update your trusty Samsung, HTC, LG E900 or even Dell Venue Pro right now if you aren’t afraid to do it all by yourself. To do so simply follow the instructions below and grab the correct packages after the break:

- Download the 7.10.8779.8 update from the first link below along with the language pack needed then download the WPupdate tools from here.
- Unzip the Tools in a folder then unzip the firmware in the same folder as the tools.
- Plug in your device, wait until the Zune client starts and then close it.
- Run the the Updater and press S or B (depending on the size of your balls..)
- your phone will then reboot in download mode and update (don’t unplug it or do stupid things with your PC during the whole process..)
- Do exactly the same with now for the 7.10.8783.12 and 7.10.8858.136 updates which are Windows Phone 7.8

Please note OEMs are also pushing devices specific firmware updates that you will have to wait for in the coming days/weeks.

    UK Smasung Omnia 7 has official update via Zune to 7.10.8858.136

    Verizon HTC Trophy (mwp6985) I got the 8779 update to work, the 8783 update to work, but the 8858 says it worked but doesnt show up on my phone! tried to redo and now it fails. No downloaded apps work, only original built-in apps work. Will try again after work today.. Luckily, I made a backup!

  • http://www.facebook.com/david.c.whitney.5 David C. Whitney

    I too failed to update a Focus with the 2nd update. I suspect it’s because I didn’t include ALL the language files (I only included English). I’m going to retry with all the language files relevant to my phone.

  • http://twitter.com/EXboxNick Nick_Stone

    OK, nevermind! 3rd times a charm! (actually 5th) but last night it kept saying unsigned for 8858 but now apparently it works…. NO MORE GUTTER ON HTC TROPHY for verizon! thank God! – @exboxnick

  • ver

    hi guys, here’s a trick you can use if the “disconnect trick dont work”
    1)connect your phone and let zune run, then go to phone>settings>update
    2)check the timing, try it click any option after clicking update
    3)mine takes 5 secs before zune shows “your phone is up to date”
    4)once you get the timing right, deduct 1 sec (EX: 5secs-1sec = 4secs[this should be your trick time])
    5)now, open command promt (search “cmd”)
    6)go to “my computer” then “C:” then “users” then “your folder”
    7)open notepad, then type this exactly what you see here
    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /renew
    8)save the file as “newip.bat”
    9)go to command promt, make sure you are on the right directory
    it should show C:/>users/”yourpcname”: *** your pc name is the name of the folder you open in C:/users/**
    10) type newip.bat in command promt but dont hit enter yet
    11) once you got the timing right, lets say about 5 secs zune will say your software is up to date, when you are in the 4secs trick time, hit enter after typing newip.bat in command promt.
    12)if you did it right, it will show you “an update is available”, there are might be 3 update, so you have to do this trick 3 times.
    13) Enjoy you windows phone 7.8!!

  • ver

    i forgot to add, make sure that the “newip.bat” you created is inside C:/users/yourpcname folder

  • sangesh shrestha

    thanx, did it

  • focus flash

    are you stuck on 8779.8? i keep trying the second update but when i the cab sender gets to “restarting phone” it times out. are you facing similar problems? any solutions?

  • hkumbhat

    The update tool is giving me an error on HTC HD7. Doesn’t push the cabs to the phone. Do I extract the cab file in the same folder as the update tool or do I simply put the cab file as it is in the update tools folder.

  • hkumbhat

    I have now tested the 7.8 update given on this webpage and all functions of my phone (HTC HD7 unlocked India) are working fine. I recommend people to use the update tool to update their phones.
