    if it's EOL, then they aren't in any hurry to get rid of them. This morning the price on a Trophy with a 2 year contract is $179.99. However, I will let them know I want the 7.8 update since I'm not due for an upgrade for about a year.

    I've been checking this thread almost every day and I'm losing my patience lol. My upgrade is in 5 months and almost want to just jump ship to the HTC 8x and ditch this waiting game all together.

    If they do release it relatively soon I think I could go a few months before wanting to upgrade again.

    I did the seveneighter route and everything went fine, no issues as I can tell. I only selected US English and Spanish for the language packs.

    Tethering was still available and if you are on unlimited data and did the tethering hack, I can confirm that still works.

    No issues with the lockscreen either, Bing pictures load up fine.

    I also used SevenEighter and have updated two Trophy's with it successfully. These were standard Verizon Trophy's that were not unlocked or anything special. Both are working perfectly with 7.8 installed. I have the unlimited data plan on my phone and tethering (hacked) is working just as it did before. Bing wallpapers are working. I've also noticed that the phone seems more responsive. Doing things like turning wireless, Bluetooth and tethering on/off seems quicker than before. I have downloaded apps from the marketplace and that's working just fine as well.

    I love the additional control over live tile sizes. This was my main reason for doing the upgrade because with 5 email accounts on the phone, having them all pinned to the start screen was a bit ridiculous before. Now I can have a bunch of my tiles in the small size which saves me a ton of space and makes getting information at a glance that much easier.

    Another thing that I didn't really expect is that I lost nothing on the phone through the upgrade process. All my media, apps and settings remained intact which was a relief. I didn't want to have to reload everything.

    I would highly recommend updating with the SevenEighter app if you are sick of waiting for 7.8 to officially get pushed out for the Trophy on Verizon.

    Seven Eighter worked like a champ. First install that I did not have to restore my phone. Novice way to do it.

    I couldn't wait anymore and did the CAB update using Easy Update from xda. Worked like a charm, the program backed up everything before it started, and I didn't lose any data. I couldn't use seven eighter as I don't have anything other than xp machines. Was very easy just had to download the 4 updates and 2 language packs. Everything seems to be working like it is supposed to. The screen does look bigger due to the tiles being larger. I'm very happy with it and will be upgrading my wife's phone tonight.

    Edit: looking again, I don't have sound enhancer. Never used it before, but maybe I used the wrong cab. Can someone post a link to the thread with the trophy specific one?

    i can also confirm that sound enhancer is gone after using seven-eighter. i never used it before, but i know that it was there before, and now it's not.

    Sound enhancer is an HTC specific add on. The fact that it isn't in the 7.8 update leads me to believe that HTC hasn't and probably won't release an official version.

    I just checked my wife's phone. It is running 7.10.8773.98 installed directly from Zune, and it doesn't show sound enhancer in the settings either, unless I just don't know where to look.

    I used Seven Eighter and I still have the sound enhancer. That is by far the most important feature I NEED. I'm a heavy music listener, and because isn't really any equalisers available, the SRS option makes a huge difference in my opinion.

    So why wouldn't I have had sound enhancer before doing this update. It definitely wasn't on my phone. I did get both phones replacednunnery warranty in August could they somehow have had generic cab files on them already?

    Those wondering about Sound Enhancer; It used to be a separate application available on HTC phones like the Trophy, but after an update was moved into the "System Settings" of the phone. If you scroll to the very bottom you should see it (not sure on 7.8 so I'm taking from experience on a 7.5 Trophy).

    I'm wondering if because it was an app, and no longer is an app, when we got our repleacement phones it didn't have it, so therefore we didn't have it on 7.5, and now don't have it on 7.8. I did see someone went into purchase history and resent it to the phone, but it doesn't show up in my purchase history, most likely because it was on there when I got the original phone, and I never uninstalled and reinstalled it.

    Oh well, guess I don't need it. Haven't missed it in the last 6 months.

    I can get my upgrade as of today but out of principal I will be waiting for the flagship Nokia model rumored to be released later this year for Verizon. The lack of communication from HTC on the 7.8 update is annoying.

    I also lost patience with another phone (Samsung Focus) - got the Lumia 920. Then I found out I could get 7.8 for the Focus, returned the Lumia after thinking about it for 10 minutes. The 920 is way too heavy (compare to the 8X!), overheats when in use for 10 minutes, can't remove the battery, no hacks for WP8 (ie internet sharing, root tools), can't use Zune to sync. Too many negatives for the big screen and faster processor. I'm happy with my first gen phone, a little slower, smaller, but looks great with 7.8. Posting here since my wife has a Trophy and am waiting out the 7.8. Definitely worth the wait 8.0 is not all positive.

    I finally did seven-eighter. No regrets at all. I really like the tile sizes. It's almost a game by itself messing with the sizes and fitting them into patterns.
    Sound Enhancer is still available in the settings menu.

    HTC TROPHY:
    LOCK AND WALLPAPER FIX UK.
    As some people ,myself included have encountered the dreaded lock and wallpaper problem on there HTC TROPHY,S after doing the cab 7.8 update i decided to try and fix it.
    The solution i found was that i didnt install the correct language packs after the final update.
    To fix this i resent the correct language cabs to my phone via the cab sender.
    Here are the language packs.
    ONLY INSTALL THE LANGUAGE CABS AND NO OTHER CABS.

    This also fixed the Bing wallpaper and the new Colour themes.
