    For those of you that have used seveneighter to update a Verizon Trophy, can you please tell me what language packs you used? I'm confused because there are two places to look at for languages: settings/keyboard/languages and settings/region+language/display language.

    If it's the former, my phone has WAY more languages installed than seveneighter has available. So I'm wary of doing this until I know for sure which batch of languages I need.

    Thanks for any advice...

    I updated with SevenEighter 8 days ago. I selected all of the language packs because I too observed that there are more on my phone than what was listed. You should be pretty safe selecting them all and installing. You need to update it three times, but it worked like a charm. And 7.8 seems to be running just fine. The buttons on the home screen are just a little sticky.

    Taking that homescreen lag into account, do you feel it's worth the upgrade? Or is it really annoying?

    I'm really enjoying it. I haven't had any other problems at all. It actually appears to have extended my battery life as well.

    This isn't a huge problem for me, but is a body else getting a bit of lag entering apps from the tiles? And has anybody fixed this, or least improved it?

    I performed this update this past Friday. I only used English and Spanish and it worked fine. BTW these were the languages listed under display, not keyboard.

    My 'WeatherLive' tile stopped updating last night. This may be an issue with 7.8 and all live tiles.

    Now Windows Phone 7.8 Update brings stuck Live Tiles – is it better off being avoided? | WMPoweruser

    Now, pertaining to the home screen lag, and this is definitely a long shot, but does giving the device a reset help at all? Has anyone tried this?

    Yeah, my pro sports scores live tile hasn't updated at all since I got 7.8, kind of a bummer.

    Interestingly, Amazing Weather continues to update its live tile on my phone.

    My wife is having issues with her me tile showing notifications that aren't there, and since updating her facebook timeline will show the most recent items and then skip several hours worth of content and resume showing stuff that happened 18 hours ago.

    I'm considering going back to 7.5, just don't know what is involved with that.

    Ok, this may be a dumb question, but WHERE can you get SevenEighter app? It's not in the Market Place.

    It isn't an official app. It's from the dev community. It's mentioned in this WPC article. New tool helps make installing the Windows Phone 7.8 update slightly easier | Windows Phone Central

    The article gives a link to the actual download page... Want Windows Phone 7.8 now? Try this easy tool (Update: Now supports 7720) - Windows Phone Hacker

    I used it on my Trophy and don't regret it one bit. It does take a while to go through all of the updates, so be patient. Also, I haven't seen the live tile issue people are talking about, but the only 3rd party tiles I use are Amazing Weather and Baconit.

    2 more updates available 8860 and 8862 which fixes the update issue and fixes some of the lag seen earlier with 8858 and 8860.

    If you already installed the first 7.8 update, would you just plug your phone in and run Seven Eighter again with the update?

    Alright, I did the update last night to 8862, but I just wanted to give a warning to others who haven't updated yet - the 8862 update will remove the Google Calendar support. It will let you sync up your contacts and such, but not the Calendar. Facebook is intact, though. You can read more about it on the web, but I just wanted to give everyone a heads up on this one.

    Thanks for the heads up. Loss of integration with Google calendar is a deal breaker for me. I HAVE to have that. Guess I won't be going that route.

    I just got a Trophy for the first time today. I really appreciate the tips on using SevenEighter to update it! I don't really use Google Calendar; the one on the phone works fine enough for me.

    I was disappointed that I wasn't able to update to a WP8 device (my upgrade got used for somebody else in my family :-\ ), but was able to get this phone on eBay for cheap, and the apps that I have downloaded so far seem to work really nice! WAY better than my old Droid X :-D

After now just updating a Titan and an LG Quantum as well, and they work fine for calls/texts, I'm pretty certain the Trophy is fine too.
    What Sever-Eighter app?

After that, you can open the project in VS 2010 and compile it. "

    so it's one little change in two files to make it work on xp, and others also posted saying that it works. however, using visual studio, and compiling programs is beyond me. i tried, i installed vs 2010 express and tried to open the project, but i just couldn't figure it out.

    i guess now i can only hope that enough people are in the same boat, and whoever made the program, or someone else that knows what they're doing makes the changes and posts the program.
    I don't believe VS 2010 Express works with .NET 4.5.
