Done with AT&T, done with HTC. I can't believe that one year after purchasing this phone, I have not received a single update, including anything to fix simple bugs. I haven't been following this story closely, so I don't know who's to blame between AT&T and HTC, but I do know my wife's Focus S got Tango something like 2 months ago. These recent stories about HTC's re-emergence in Windows Phone just make me mad- how about supporting your existing devices first?!
I guess I'll wait and get something on Ting or Republic Wireless. It's looking like Ting will have a Windows Phone by then- hopefully it will be a Nokia. If not, I guess it's Android for me :(.

Can anyone pull up a cached page of that update? I have an e-mail going with HTC and they claim they know nothing about it. Of course it's gone so I can't prove anything. I should probably be talking to AT&T, so maybe I'll try that. Squeaky wheel, etc.

Wayback machine does not have a cache of the support page.
I am stuck with ATT but definitely not stuck with HTC. They will probably NEVER get my business again, and anyone thinking of getting an HTC will get some flak from me as well. Over a year and not a single update. Why could they not just push the Titan 2 update to our phones? Only difference is the camera I think.

I Did It! Courtesy Josh
In my case I had a problem with this error (when my device was restarted it always appeared the next error (update device 160a69e1 - 160a69e1 - 43c1151c - a579b1de - cf0d5649 complete with error code 80070013.) and that error is because we need to update our firmware, and for that, you need to download the HOTFIX (spl_2.6.160015.3_WWE)here...http://www.htc.com/www/support/news.a..., you only need to follow the steps described in that page.
Run "spl_2.6.160015.3_WWE", but if you have a problem trying to install that upate and one driver is required in your PC (qualcomm cdma technologies msm) just let "windows update" download that driver and automatically will be installed.
Follow the steps described in that page one more time and your problem will be solved, with that driver installed you won´t have problems to run that HOTFIX and your Firmware will be Updated.
After that you will be ready to the next procedure.
1.- Download WP7_update_tool and run the operative system that you got (x64 or x86).
2.- Download "seveneighter" and execute it as Administrator.
3.- Click to "Install WP7.8" and choose you language (search in your phone in settings--region+language and put all laguages that appear in "Display Language"...THIS IS IMPORTANT!...In my case I only have as language "English" so I used that pack (English EU).
Your device will be restarted and that error will be gone and automatically all updates will be downloaded and installed....you only need to wait for a minutes and you will see how your device is restarted everytime one updated is installed.

What is it with all of these threads never including a simple link to the files and programs that need to be used? Where do I find WP7_update_tool? Where do I find a program called seveneigher?
Download: seveneighter.zip - Windows Phone Hacker
Trying this now.

In my case I made a change using my Lumia 920 (WP8) by adding a phone number to a contact. The change was synced to Outlook.com and to People in Windows 8 but on the AT&T Titan with WP7.8 (WiFi connection) I have yet to see that change.

Sorry yours is not working though. Have you tried a hard reset maybe? I assume with your 920 if you make a change to a contact on your computer it immediately syncs to your phone?

Have an AT&T Titan in CA Bay Area USA, and successfully updated mine tonight per the posts above. Thanks to everybody who posted links, etc. I had to do the radio update first due to error on my first try, but afterwards it could not have been simpler. Def want to make sure you're charged up, and then sit back, be patient and let seven-eighter do it's thing. I think mine took about 30 mins or so to run through all the updates in order, reboot, etc., since I (like many others) had to come all the way back up from 7720. Coming over from Android on Verizon, I simply cannot understand the complete and utter lack of support for our Titans by AT&T and/or HTC - there's no excuse. Happy to have the update though - thanks again everyone - now to test!
The link to the radio update above returned a 404 error for me - here's a different one: Support - HTC TITAN Product Support - News & download

1) Plug Titan in to computer - close Zune software
2) Open SevenEighter - click on install Windows Phone 7.8 button - select all language packs and wait...
3) Then wait...
Is that it?

Besides the new UI, keyboard fix and a couple settings(? I already have the camera setting from HTC anyways), what is the benefit to this? Doesn't really seem worth the hassle to manually force this update.
The keyboard bug is slightly annoying (mine always happens 3 times in a row. lol) The most annoying bug by far is when i have something plugged into my 3.5mm jack for sound output the whole phone goes flaky. Bing voice search opens, the volume randomly goes all the way up or down, tracks can skip ahead... Its like possession.
Having said that, I can't say I see any major benefit to upgrading at this time, unless I'm missing a major bonus to it. Obviously, if I got it OTA, I'd opt for it, but I'm talking the hassle of forcing it and hoping nothing goes wrong.

I'm using a Lumia 810 at the moment, so no, I haven't had the guts to pull the trigger on Seven-Eighter yet... I'm honestly hoping for a Live Tile fix before I do it or maybe some good news from XDA about running WP8 on it... Frankly, it would be the perfect phone for me if it had a newer version of 7.5 and customizable APN's... That would do it for me... Ahhh, Titan love...
