I installed all listed languages on seven eighter app -- ATT Focus S / SIM unlocked. It was hard to match languages since the list on the seven eighter app was not sorted. My phone seems to work ok. Where would I see problems if I picked wrong languages? If nothing else, try the seven eighter with all languages. If you need to restore, you will have a pre-7.8er backup that shows up on Zune.

edm4life - ok can't help. My 3rd party apps work with all 7.8er languages selected. I have 1 app (Easy Connect) that crashes on launch, but I noticed it also crashes on my L900 that was updated to 7.8 with the Zune trick. The 7.8er app is slick -- too bad it can't query your phone for the correct languages. Then it would be perfect.

I don't have a Focus S, but I happened to see this thread. I noticed that you're all looking at the languages in the "Keyboard" settings, which is wrong. Those aren't the language packs you need to select in the seven-eighter tool. You have to go into "Region+Language" and what you need to install are the languages in the "Display Language" tab.
I.e. on my Nokia Lumia 710 I had English (US), Spanish, and Chinese (Traditional). I also have 37 fonts in the Keyboard settings, but that's not the same as "Region+Language"

Go figure! It doesn't really explain all that much about which language packs to use on windowsphonehacker (Want Windows Phone 7.8 now? Try this easy tool (Update: Now supports 7720) - Windows Phone Hacker). it really doesn't make sense to install a whole language pack for just the keyboard fonts.
Either way I just know it worked on the 710 with installing just the display fonts. No error messages. I'm still able to use the keyboard languages just fine. (I swap between German / English all the time) But of course every phone could be different.

Samsung Focus S Display Languages - Imgur
Do these languages correspond to those in the seveneighter tool? Should I try updating by selecting only my default language in the tool (English US)?

Hi I have the focus S and was patiently waiting for the update....but got tired of waiting and did the seven-eighter worked flawlessly. I also did on the htc surround worked flawlessly on that also.....no more waiting...took about 20 mins at most.....very easy....I'll put the link ....Vibbareno
New tool helps make installing the Windows Phone 7.8 update slightly easier | Windows Phone Central
PS: select all the languages and then let it go.....do not disconnect until the very end when it says congrats you are updated......because looks like at one point its done but it's not the computer will tell you when it's done.

Forced it with seveneighter....took 45 minutes.......3 phone reboots..... no issues with live tiles....installed all language packs..... works beautifully althought a tad less responsive than 7.5,... Let it run until it done, you will think it's hung, but the software will tell you when it's finished.

hi gang.. running a locked AT&T Samsung focus, rev 1.3. was unable to get the wp7.8 update via the zune force trick (this worked on all previous updates).
tried for days, just would not pick it up...
in process of trying the seven-eighter right now.. will let you know results..
selected all languages.... is taking a long time.. waiting...
OK it finished, took a couple hours, and several (like 5) phone reboots. running wp7.8 just fine now.
all data was retained, music, photos, email, txt, etc. quite the nice tool and glad it worked so well. Be patient, took quite a while. just let the Seven-Eighter do its thing.

Hey everyone, you should be selecting all of the languages. But if you are worried, these are all of the ones that were on my ATT - Locked - Mango - Focus S
X Chinese Traditional
X Chinese Simplified
X Dutch (Netherlands)-
X English (United States)
X English (United Kingdom)
X French (France)
X Portuguese (Portugal)
X Portuguese (Brazil)

I know it's not the original Focus, but I was able to update my Focus Flash using "7.8er".
I ran into an error the first time I tried, but after reverting back to my initial version, because it failed after a the 2nd phase of the update, and selecting "All" of the language packs (only selected one initially) it updated and runs fine.

Finally got updated!! Turns out I had tried to update, and then canceled mid way before, thinking the application had hung up, and feared it would crash my phone.
I reverted to my last backup, which 78er had taken earlier this month, and tried again with all languages, and wahlah!! Good to go!

Is anyone else having serious battery issues? I often go from 40% to 0 in the blink of an eye. Then charge it for a few minutes and be back up to 60%. I've ordered a new battery and hope it will help. But it seems like the OS isn't correctly syncing with the battery.
