    Received it too - the new home screen and accent colours are really nice.

    I don't feel so bad about hanging on to my Titan for a bit longer now!

    Are you guys using a mobile locked Titan. I've tried a few times last night but couldn't get my AT&T locked phone to update.

    That almost sounds like you are getting a firmware update as well. How many updates were actually pushed?

    I can't get my fully unlocked and unbranded phone to update either.

    I've read that it's nice and awesome, and that is information. It's not their problem whether you can use that information or not.

    Useful information might be:

    The continent or even the hemisphere on which the phone resides
    The carrier, if any
    How they received the update

    But what can you expect from accounts with fewer than 20 posts and zero information in their profiles.

    Have updated my UK carrier unlocked Titan to 7.8

    I did this by using the "cable unplugging" trick

    It seemed reasonably easy once I'd remembered to put the phone into "Flight Mode".

    There were three updates in all but each time Zune didn't automatically detect that there were further updates to install.

    Therefore you have to force each update until you finally get the 8858 update which is the one for the resizable tiles, new accent colours, etc.

    Hope this helps

    I just took my AT&T Titan to 7.8 using the Seven-Eighter tool from the wpcentral front page. Worked like a charm and so far appears to be without issue. No firmware updates from HTC of course, but it's not like they're going to fix the terrible call quality anyway. :/

    I just used the Seven-Eighter tool also and it updated to 7.8, but then I checked the accent colors and there was nothing new. Then I tried to open several apps under settings and they wouldn't open. even the About screen wouldn't launch. Has anyone had this problem? TITAN on AT&T-- carrier locked.

    Thanks!

    It sounds like you didn't select all the language packs. You need to check every box because the titan comes with all of them. Try again.

    Thanks for the advice. I tried several times selecting all the languages. when I select them it always errors out and says update unsuccessful. however when I don't select any language it seems to update but doesn't fix the issue. I only selected English the first time because several articles about updating says that the AT&T Titan only has English installed. Now I know that the articles were wrong but the backup made is one with English only so when I restore to a previous update via Zune it still has the same issues. Any ideas what I can do now?

    I'm a little wary about doing this update so far, I really don't want to screw anything up on my phone. I wish there was more info about how to do this right, and if there really isn't any problems with anything after updating.
    I did see something about doing this htc update before doing the 7.8 though, this might help you. Support - HTC TITAN Product Support - News & download

    ATT locked Titan 1 in the US
    Windows 7 x64

    Ran as administrator the Seven Eighter utility. It prompted to download another utility, did so and ran the new download.
    Re-ran as administrator and started it. It asks for languages. Select all of them (must double click the checkboxes).
    For me, it crashed one time after about 15 minutes. I closed it, reopened it as administrator and started it again (rechecked all languages).
    It was done in another 5 minutes or so.

    Good luck everyone!

    My experience was very much like Team Obi Juan's. My upgrade stalled out somewhere around 8773.98 and I closed and restarted Seven Eighter and it gave me an error that I didn't have enough space on drive C. After freeing up some space I started it again and it completed with no problems. Thanks for the heads up everyone!

    I did the same exact thing on my wife's Focus Flash (all languages) and it went perfectly as well. It didn't crash a single time.

    I tried this on my Titan 1 but kept getting error code 80070013. Did u ever run into that? I am on Windows 7 64 bit.

    Did your phone say that or...?

    Oh sorry. The Seven Eighter app keeps giving me that error code every time I use it. My Titan does not have a SIM card in it, maybe that is screwing things up?

    Just did the seven eighter update on my locked ATT Titan. Work fine, no crashing. Everything seems to be working OK. I installed all languages.
