    My update has been stuck on step 6 of 9 (Restarting your phone) for almost an hour now. Should I worry yet? Should I cancel out? (L900, AT&T)
    So it's been 2.5 hours now. cancel?

    What should be the version final version number for the Firmware revision number for the AT&T Lumia 900 in the US? Different people report differently. The Nokia site (Nokia Lumia 900 Overview - Nokia - USA) says 2175.2905.885x.124x0, but on the forums, people report 2175.2307.8858.12480. Note this is the firmware version, not the OS version.

    Why the discrepency? Is some firmware not getting installed by doing this trick? Also ATT hasn't announced the availibility of this update so there may be a possibility that all updates don't flow through.

    Don't worry. This method is legit and will install all the update that is out there officially. Mine reported firmware version 2175.2307.8858.12480. If there is a newer firmware, AT&T/Nokia hasn't released it yet but the OS update is released. If not, you will not be able to get the update even if you force it.

    SUCCESS!! Im on a mac. no way no how would the trick work with OSX. so i installed win7 via bootcamp.
    there were 3 updates like many have stated already. i had to do the cable trick for each. after finishing the first 2, both of which works on the first try. i finally did the last which was 7.8 and i got so happy after reading it was the "big one," that i hit the update button before reconnecting my wifi. so i had to do the procedure once more and had no problem with getting the update again on first try. phone is updating as we speak with some 7.8 goodness!

    Nothing yet - Mac OS X, Lumia 900, AT&T. Oddly, the Windows Phone connector software isn't giving me an up-to-date message OR an update found message - it just stops looking for updates. I assume this means servers are overloaded and this is a timeout, but man, sometimes I miss the Event Viewer in the Control Panel...

    By the way, all the other updates ended in -o names; NoDo, Mango, Tango, Apollo, Portico. Did they name this one? I keep thinking it's WP 7.8 "Placebo".

    Finally! My old Lumia 900 got the update. Used the Zune trick. If only there was some fix, like this, for my 920!

    Now, next thing to do is to give this phone to my mom, and get her off her Android (HTC One S).

    I had to force my 900 to update. Just plugged my wife's phone in and Zune found the update without any trickery. Both are 900's on at&t.

    No luck on my 900 yet with either the mac connector or zune/zune trick. Hopefully it will notify me tomorrow because I'm done trying tonight.

    L900 on AT&T in Chicagoland, had to force the update and pulled it after a few tries. final FW = 2175.2307.8858.12480. So far works great.

    I'm on ATT and I upgraded mine through Zune. Didn't have any problems with the upgrade process. I really enjoy the new (for us anyways) interface. My fiance has the 920 and after playing with hers, I wished I had the color selection and mini-tiles. It may be purely cosmetic, but I'm happy with 7.8.

    Unbranded int'l 900, was already on 8779 from the factory. Used the Zune trick and got 2 updates:

    First one was labeled a Nokia update for phones with no camera button. Took the BSP to 2175.2905.8853.12440, and the OS from 8779 to 8783.
    Second one is the 7.8 update. Takes the OS to 7.10.8858.136 (installing that one now).

    I'm assuming there are no more but I might try the trick again to see whether yet another one is lurking.
