    finally, airplane mode trick worked. if you disable the wifi too quick, it will say can't connect with the error code and if you wait too long, it would say up to date. so just try different wait times. for me i think it was about 3-4 seconds.

    Wierd, I updated, and it wasn't 7.8. It was some update for phones without a camera button. So I went to do the cable trick a second time and this time I had to pull the cable after about one second. I'm now loading 7.8. AT&T Lumia 900.

    When you say disable WiFi, you mean my laptop? My phone is already in airplane mode and connected via USB.

    Definately reconnecting the network helps.
    Lumia 900

    I did the Zune trick.
    Airplane Mode
    When I got the long wait, I plugged the network cable back in, and it found the update

    You want to disconnect your computer from the internet. If you are using a wired connection you can either pull out your ethernet cable or disable the network adapter. If your computer is connected to the internet through wifi then you can disable wifi.

    Look for updates, wait a few seconds (general consensus seems to be 3-4 seconds), and then disconnect from the internet on your computer.

    hit updates count to 5 then pull the connection and when it says there is an update pug back in to the network and click update.

    Mind did two updates and can’t get it to do a 3rd. I am on ATT in Chicago

    I had wifi off on phone and airplane mode. Using Corleones method, I kept switching from update to any other and turning off wifi on the computer. I really didn't think it would work. About the 5th try it did. Good luck! Did not update to 7.8, I have 8783.12. Okay, leave the wifi on the computer off, ohhhhhh. I only received 2 updates. But I am done, thank you forum!

    Got it working, yay, had to force it unfortunately.

    The trick for me was to make sure to run the check one time completely, before disconnect my network.
    So basically:
    • put phone in airplane mode
    • check for update in zune
    • check for update again and disable my Ethernet port
    • bamn, had to do this twice for my lumia to get the two updates.

    Remember to:

    (1) Put your phone to airplane mode
    (2) Unplug the cable physically! (Turning off wifi did not work for me)

    Other than that, if you see "can't check for update @!#$#@", that means you're unplugging it too soon, and if you're seeing "your phone is up to date", then as mentioned in previous posts, you didn't do it quick enough. There seems to be a specific unplugging timing for you to get the update, not too fast, but not too slow either.

    Be patient guys!
    I took YINK TKs advise. I was patient and finally notified of an update. The process took around 1/2 hour. But I noticed something weird. It just said "Nokia Update for windows phone". (no os # or anything.) Then, in the description it had two items: 1) Provides support for phones without a physical camera button. 2) Provides other windows phone improvements. TO MY SHOCK, THE UPDATE FINISHED "SUCCESSFULLY", AND NO NEW START SCREEN OR ANYTHING OTHER VISIBLE!!! NOW I JUST WANT TO SMASH THE PHONE. ANY HELP?????

    Took a few tries but I got the Zune trick to work. It's on the first update (phones without physical camera buttons). Hopefully it goes through all the updates without me having to do the Zune trick each time.

    Please remember for AT&T L900, there are two updates to get you to 7.8. I saw someone posted that for Rogers L900, there are three updates to get to 7.8.

    Your final OS version shoud be 8858.

    You have to. First time, I have to wait about 3 to 4 seconds. Second time, I have wait only about 1 second.

    Do the same thing again. There are 2 updates. I have to do this too. It can be frustrating but it is easy to fix.

    connected with Zune with no problem; all updates completed; looks nice...especially after I resized the tiles. Then went to marketplace and updated any apps that indicated availability. Nice & clean.
