hi, i have an Australia Telstra network LG optimus 7 Q which is identical to Quantum by style design and identical in hardware chipset with Optimus 7.
I use a combination of Cutting wifi trick and the seveneighter update tool to successfully upgraded the phone to 7.8
It took some three hours in the process (include backups because i have 12 GB of stuff installed.)
it is now running 7.10.8858.136
hardware revision is 18.104.22.168
I'd like to say the same but for some reason my LG optimus 7 won't update to 7.8. I was wondering if someone is kind enough to help me :). I'm using the Dutch T-Mobile network and got my phone only like 6 months ago. I have a Mac (I know...) but haven't tried it yet on my PC. I've no idea what I am doing wrong here as other people (outside Europe and Netherlands) can easily update theire phone. thanks in advance
I have an Optimus 7 since it came out, flashed an European Open ROM on it quite some time ago (was locked down to T-Mobile Croatia and I switched to VIP).
Received the 7.8 update today. Was really surprised to see it without any tricks/hacks.
So yeah, cheers to MS, going around LG and pushing the update on their own... 10/10 decision! :D
I have the Optimus 7 (C900B) phone from Bell Mobility and have not seen any update of any kind. The Zune 'unplug-internet-cable' trick is not working either - I must have pulled out that cable a 100 times.
