    I have an At&t lumia 900 and I updated to 7.8 with the cable trick.
    Is there a way to get the 2 new updates?
    Zune did not show new updates.

    I'm on Rogers. I used the internet trick for my 900 as well to get 7.8. I just plugged in yesterday and it already knew it had the updates. It fixed the stuck live tiles (except wpcentral's double wide tile... the small and medium size tiles work tho... ) . You just have to play the waiting game. Maybe try the disconnect trick again.

    Nope, no luck for me either down here in Florida. Tried the zune trick, nothing. I don't think it's out yet on AT&T. If you do get it sometime though, post it here so we'll know. Much appreciated!

    No update here either for our L900. The good news is it's being replaced by a 920 today so no worries for me. Having said that I'm holding onto it as a backup and will keep trying to update and post if I have any luck. I updated our 2 decommissioned Sammy Focii via Zune yesterday but they both are ROG-CA via registry edit, eh.

    The 8858 ROMs disappeared from NCS today so hopefully that is a sign of Nokia replacing them with 8862 ROMs soon and that will be a sign that AT&T is ready to start the roll out for 8862.

    Yes it's a bit of a no news post but, still no sign of the two additional updates for our decommissioned L900. It's in airplane mode and I tried several times via Zune including a few network disconnects but ... no luck. Anyone else?

    The zune method isn't going to work because 8862 isn't on nokia's servers yet. I check navifirm everyday and they deleted the original 7.8 files and all that's on there now is 7.5.

    You can keep asking all you want, everyday every second, ATT IS NOT RELEASING 7.8 AGAIN, NOT EVER. So if they don't put it on Nokia's servers, YOU CANNOT GET IT. What's so hard to understand about that. In order to download something must be there. It just doesn't come out of the air.
