    I let my (broken) phone do the Verizon radio update last night.

    I then followed this link and had a backup and was updated to 8107 in about 10 minutes this morning. From 7720 to 8107, downloaded the 7720->7740 and 7740->8107 cabs, 8107 English and Spanish cabs. I didn't have to do the steps 9 or 10 but worth checking on.

    edit: and yes my phone is broken and my daily driver still--only portrait mode and no tilt functions in games. Still better than my OG Droid or any new phone I could get with my upgrade plus NE2. Cmon VZW give us more :)

    Ok, here's the deal...
    I was already at 7.10 (8107) so the updates didn't seem to be firing for me. I had followed the instructions at Updating Your Windows Phone to 8107 - RobertMcLa.ws to get there and it was a fast and easy process. I re-downloaded the cabs from his links and re-ran it but still didn't get my firmware and radio software current.

    So I then went to the XDA site and grabbed the CAB for the firmware alone. http://download.windowsupdate.com/ms...0bb4144bda.cab
    Expanded it in the same folder as the other CABs are extracted to and ran JUST the send CAB option from the .BAT file. After that, my firmware is now current. BOOYAH!!!

    I got notice of update yesterday and downloaded it with no issues so far. Only think I have noticed so far is no disappearing keyboard.

    If you got notice of the update, and didn't install anything else it won't affect the keyboard at all. The update from Verizon is only a firmware update. If you do just the 8107 update through *other methods*, it won't apply the firmware update unless you include it as well.

    I was already at 8107. I got offered the HTC update last night. Radio firmware now shows the latest.

    So that means people should get offered the update no matter what OS version they're on.

    Is this something that is updated using *228?
    *228 dosent update the firmware or software, it only downloads a prl file, which is basically a csv file with system id's telling the phone where to find the network. Anyone who tells you it is for troubleshooting, firmware updates, itll fix dropped calls or enable features is wrong.

    I have noticed after the update that the voice quality is the same but when I talk to someone on the phone they cut in and out which is getting real annoying. Anyone else experiencing this?

    Daniel,

    I received notification of an update this morning, went ahead and updated but only received the radio firmware update. No sign of 8107. Just for reference, I'm located in Madison, WI.

    I'm pretty sure Verizon is not pushing 8107. They are pushing a radio firmware update and people are getting confused about what it is.

    So what is in the 8107 update besides a radio firmware update?
    Thanks

    I updated to 8107 manually and the biggest thing I've noticed is that it fixed the disappearing KB.

    8107 is strictly a software update. It's unrelated to and completely separate from the radio firmware update, which is specific to the Verizon Trophy. It mainly fixes the disappearing keyboard issue but I believe it also fixes some other minor issues with email syncing and privacy concerns.

    As a warning, I think I read somewhere that if you force the 8107 update on your Verizon Trophy it cannot then be updated with the new radio. Many of us are hoping that the radio update fixes an issue where the phone will not reconnect to data after returning to the US from overseas. In order to reconnect, the phone has to go through a hard reset.

    Just got a notice of Update Available. Haven't had time to check to see if it's 8107 or just the Radio update.

    Just installed the update and my OS is 7.10.7720.68, so it's not the 8107 update.

    Radio SW Version is now: 1.53.00.12.01_23.17w.05.13U

    The cab loader is gone, but that's because it was hosted at MegaUpload which is no more....

    If anyone wants it, I should have the WP7 CAB Update Sender still on my laptop, can probably upload it somewhere or just email it if it's small enough. And the .cabs all come from MS direct so that's good.

    I also successfully updated my new Trophy all the way to 8107. Had to go the whole way from NoDo so it took awhile.

    For those who have installed the RADIO update (not 8107), did you lose your voicemail indicator on the live tile and in the phone app? This happened to me consistently on 2 Trophies after the update and Verizon has been unable to fix it (they sent me a replacement phone, which worked fine until I ran the radio update yesterday).

    Please let me know!
