    Anyone get this yet on their phone?

    Or has anyone tried to force it using this method?

    Windows Phone 7 build 7.10.8107.79 roll out started get it now and update manually | MobileTechWorld


    I'm tempted to but will wait for someone else with an Optimus 7 to try it first.

    Since my carrier skipped 7740 I hope we get this officially soon.

    About doing it manually, I downloaded the tools but never got around to do it, since you need to be very careful pushing those updates along the language packs your phone has.

    I updated using the disconnect trick. I'm using an unlocked Vodafone Germany Optimus 7.

    Were you on 7732 or 7740 prior to updating?

    Because if I try the disconnect trick I get no updates, however, if I debrand the phone I only get a notification for 7740

    I'll rather wait. The Disappearing Keyboard doesn't bother me that much.

    Yeah, it's not a big problem for me either, I'd just love to have the latest and greatest update

    The keyboard issue is a pain sometimes, but I'll wait for the carrier to release the update. Perhaps my contract will be up when the Nokia 800 is brought out here.

    Exactly, it's not the same situation like when Mango came out. I stay out late forcing the update :D.

    That article links to .cab files. I wonder if there's an easy way for me to find the original 7720 for HTC Arrive.

    I'm with Telus in Ontario Canada and my OS version is 7720

    So there is a 7732 and a 7740 out already plus the newest 8107

    the Optimus 7 is such a good device. I wonder why LG is shying away of that design and focusing of copying Samsung.

    Yeah, I got both the 7740 & 8107 yesterday for my LG Optimus 7. Why did Telus do that? Just sit on an update and them release 2 in the same day.

    I guess Microsoft policy for support reasons say that companies can hold back one update if they want. Telus picked 7740 to hold back for some reason. I am not at all impressed with Telus or new offering of phones from them as well as 3g service in my area. I have a feeling at contract end I am moving to Rogers and a Nokia 900. Too bad been with Telus for a long time.

    I just updated by setting the MobileOperator key located in HKLM\System\Platform\DeviceTargetingInfo\ to 000-88 instead of my carrier.

    Zune installed 7740 first and then 8107.

    I forced updated the 7720 using network disconnect method, now waiting for next update which I suspect will never come to the E900 on Telcel since the phone is no longer available on Telecel. I wonder if the force update to 7720 prevents future upgrades from the carrier? Everything however working fine so really no need for the upgrades right now, but like you I would like to have the latest :)

    I updated to 7720 the same way you did and there was no problem in doing so. It was just a matter of jumping ahead in line to get it instead of waiting for it.

    Kind of what I did on my previous post, I changed a registry setting to make my phone search for updates directly instead of through telcel.

    That being said I think telcel is going to wait until version 8773 and release that update, since it is sort of a "big" update and not just a bug fix.

    Hope you are right about Telcel in Mex. They are supposed to be releasing the Nokia Lumina line shortly and hopefully that will encourage them to get their releases out sooner rather than later.
