    Have you tried the Zune trick explained here? http://www.windowscentral.com/force-...void-frostbite

    It worked for a lot of people to install 7.8 also.

    Try the cab updater from xda-developer.com, works great and gives you legit cabs from Microsoft

    I've also tried several times, using the cable trick as well. I don't have it hooked up to a network cable, but rather just disconnected my WiFi. Anyhow, nothing has worked. Can anyone help? I am in the U.S. My Lumia is AT&T branded, however I've recently switched over to Straight Talk.

    The 7.8 update was halted. It has now started again, but the updated 7.8 for the ATT version of the 900 has yet to be released. Give it time. :)

    People were having problems with Live Tiles failing to update.

    It was released WEEKS ago, wtf are you talking about? They pulled it because of the tile issue and it's currently being tested to make sure it was fixed. If my math is correct it will show up on Navifirm next week and Zune the following tues-wed.

    I know this thread hasn't been posted in for about a month, but there's a new update to 8862 up on the Nokia servers for the AT&T 900. That usually means Zune/Windows Phone for Mac app should have it going out soon.

    The newer version is as follows:

    OS Version: 7.10.8862.144
    Firmware Revision Number: 2175.2307.8862.13100
    Hardware Revision Number: 112.1914.2.0
    Radio Software Version: 2.1.75.22
    Radio Hardware Version 8055
    Bootloader Version: 7.17.2.0
    Chip SOC Version: 0.85.2.1


    This is in contrast to 8858 which had the following version info:

    OS Version: 7.10.8858.136
    Firmware Revision Number: 2175.2307.8858.12480
    Hardware Revision Number: 112.1914.2.0
    Radio Software Version: 2.1.75.22
    Radio Hardware Version 8055
    Bootloader Version: 7.17.2.0
    Chip SOC Version: 0.85.2.1

    So the only real changes are in the OS & Firmware. No radio updates, or anything else it appears.

    Give it a little bit. Since the update is on the Nokia server it should be out soon. That's how it usually works.

    I just wish it was better expressed to the community about what was going on. Then instead of speculation we would know the dates of release and I would feel great about waiting.
