I think I was one of the lucky ones and got notified of the update the day it came out (June 27) as soon as I connected my phone to Zune. From using the phone the last few days, a lot of bugs seem to have been fixed, including the keyboard sound lag issue, the disappearing keyboard issue and the issue where couldn't talk to someone if you had normal headphones (without a microphone) plugged into the phone.
Since a lot of people haven't gotten the update, I'm guessing they're staggering the rollout of the update. Try connecting your phone to see what happens though. The update didn't show up for me until I did.

Tango'd mine using the wifi trick again and again (4 times). Then the Samsung update happened on its own. So much fun. Thanks again AT&T - you're still the worstest.
So far so good but its early so... :P

I did the Zune connection hack and it recognized an update to 7740, but twice now it's gotten stuck at the restarting phone screen and eventually errored out. Error 801812C1
Edit: Thank you Google. I had an issue with a driver that wasn't installing to my pc properly. This site was immensly helpful:

Please guys - any of you that have forced the Tango update all the way - including the Sammy update that seems to be the last one that zune pushes - please, please please try playing some audio through the zune player via a car stereo or some other amplified source and report whether that annoying "pop" between tracks has gone.
I need more than one person to verifiy this before getting my hopes up.

I think it was narrowed down to some weird firmware issue that was basically the phone cutting power to the headphone jack when it detected a gap in music and then turining it back on again - causing the "pop" noise.

Experiment 1: I played music through the aux cable at normal sound (normal to me, your usage may vary) and noticed no "pop" between tracks. I switched tracks a few dozen times in 3 different albums on my phone.
Experiment 2: I cranked the phone volume all the way up and turned it up quite loud in my car and had mixed results. Many times there was no "pop" but occasionally there was. Again I switched tracks several dozen times and listened closely. At no time did the "pop" reach the level of volume that the music did but it was noticeable about 30-40% of the time.
Experiment 3: At the previously set high volume, I allowed several tracks to progress naturally to the next and didn't hear a "pop" at any time when I did this.
Probably not quite what you wanted to hear, woodbane, but there it is. I'm not sure it's relevant, but I drive a 2010 Hyundai with factory stereo and a USB & AUX connection in the center console.
Also, a side note, while texting with my earbuds in and the key press sounds on, it no longer makes the staticy "woosh" sound between each key press.

Incidentally I also drive a Hyundai - 2008 Sonata - but I've added the AUX in via a hardwired FM modulator. Just have an AUX input on the dash so a nice tidy install actually.
If your report gets echoed by anyone else I'd strongly consider a Focus S again until WP8 drops.
ANYONE ELSE CARE TO VERIFY DaHui623's FINDINGS?

It's mainly the 4.3" screen I'm after. That being said, there's a naggin part of me that's just saying "wait it out dumb-*** and pick up a WP8, it's only another 3-4 months"!
Ahhh, decisions, decision.........
I'd still like to hear from anyone else that's managed this update and done some audio testing.

Download the cab files from xda :
[CAB] Official WP7 Updates List: 7.10.8773 + ALL LANGUAGES complete + OEM updates - xda-developers
(you could download the links one by one or go to post 1055 where someone zipped all the files you need)
then follow this guide:
for the focus S, you need to have all 22 language cabs installed. It wont work if any of them are missing
Also, some people reported having trouble upgrading when they tried to make the jump from 7720 to 8379. The solution is to gradually upgrade
7720 to 8107
8107 to 8112
8112 to 8379
Its very simple. Prob 15 minutes to upgrade to each version
