    I was able to force the update on my Fujitsu phone. The interesting part was that I had to update to 8779 and 8783 before upgrading to 8858.
    The update is "live" on AU servers and announced by AU, but it doesn't appear that they are pushing it to everyone.

    Plugged my phone in and it said I had a update for my phone. Man, not having the "gutter" makes a huge difference!

    I only plugged in and updated about 30 mins ago, it flew through the first update, and is installing the update you're waiting to download.... so I'd think there is a problem if its stuck there for so long!

    ETA... now onto the 7.8 update, it's flying along :D

    Edit again, that's it, another 10 mins down all updated :) great stuff.

    Ok, I am updating as we speak. Put the phone in airplane mode, checked for update and it told me there isn't any, pressed another button over or below the update link, then counted to around 4-5 and I got the update.

    Task Manager > Services > Any thing with the word "Zune" set to 'Start' > Reset your computer > Plug in Phone > Open Zune > Task Manager > Services > Start anything with the word Zune > do force > Boom!

    Mine was stuck at 0% all night. I did the above I went from step 2 to step 5 in the amount of time it took to type this. The first update was specifically a Nokia update, not the Windows update.

    Edit: It jumped to step 7 by the time I was able to reread this. Basically, reset your computer, ensure Zune has activated all of its services, then force the update. It should work then. Also, take your time. Give your computer a chance to set at each stage before moving on.

    Edit 2: First update was installed. Did the force again and was given the option to install a "Windows Phone" update. Already at step 7.

    Edit 3: And I'm done! I hope this helped! Again, make sure Zune has every process up and running before you try anything. After that, it should work fine.

    Now, excuse me while I go play with the new live tiles.

    Done...hope I never have to go through this crap again.

    And Nokia should have opened up Internet Sharing for all, having the message to contact Att pop up when you don't have service with ATT is just stupid.

    You don't actually have to do any of this crazy stuff. We are just all being impatient (me included) and want it now. It will eventually show up in Zune without doing the cable pull.

    One thing though, are the smallest tiles of 3'rd party apps supposed to look a bit blurry on 7.8? I have that small pet peeve, but the homescreen itself makes it feel like a completely new phone. I'm using the Steel theme.

    Also on Music+Videos, I noticed a minor change. On the history tab thing, the last played media was a very large tile, now it is only about a quarter of the original.

    There would be no issue in disconnecting at this point. The system hasn't touched your phone and won't until step 6 or 7. Just unplug, find another computer (my assumption is that a firewall or network policy is blocking you from the download server), and try again.

    Yesterday night I got the update for my LG Optimus 7 E900. When I connected it to the PC to transfer some photos, it began to get updated, I didn't have to force the update. I live in Santander (Spain) and my telephone operator is Vodafone Spain. There were some rumours that said that LG devices were not going to receive the update, but I can say they were only rumours. My LG is now updated to WP 7.8 (version 7.10.8858.136) and it works very well. I even think it works faster. I enclose two pictures of my device (I'm so sorry for their quality).

    Lumia 710
    HTC HD7 (although HTC said it wasn't getting it)
    LG Optimus 7

    I noticed that Office is now version 14.5 on these phones...cannot recall what the version was before, but the wp8 version is 15

    I don't expect any love from Sprint so I used the manual method on my HTC Arrive, it seems to be working fine. Love the new tile sizes!
