    No, I tried the one were you disconnect your phone in the middle of the update, pull the battery for 5 minutes, and then reconnect. Thought I bricked my phone, and it still didn't work. I'll wait until someone else tries this before I do.

    I tried that as well. No progress yet?

    Lumia 710 on T-Mobile (US) here. Just managed to force update my phone. I posted a quick thing about it here.

    It was really painless.

    I'm just a bit cautious because of what I've read from other forums and blogs.

    Yeah, I think it's probably safer to wait. If you're unlucky it will come at the end of July to the latest.

    You're not having any troubles are you? Because I think I will do this.

    No, everything works great and it was really easy to force the updates following the steps. I had to force Zune to find an update 3 times total (using the disconnection trick). The Nokia firmware upgrade was automatic. Just make sure you follow the instructions.

    But then again, you could wait and be 100% sure the update process will be smooth. After all, forcing the update through Zune is an unofficial and unsupported way to update.

    I just realized that you're speaking of the Zune update, not the self-installed .cab file update xD I'm hesitant to do that :) I've already updated to 8112.

    Yeah sorry. I may have posted in the wrong thread. The .cab install is even more of a gamble.

    Edit: just to confirm I have 8770 and it worked through the Zune method. It's weird I managed to do it but you guys are having problems.

    It is. Nice though. I'm wondering why we get this error out of so many others. Just our luck, right? xD It stops mid-installation for some reason.

    So i didn't get an error code but it installed the first part of the update and the phone said it was done, but now for almost the last hour the Zune says its only 1/4 through the update but its not doing anything...anyone have any thoughts?




    * I finally got fed up and just disconnected and restarted and it fixed the issue

    I wasn't able to. My phone couldn't entirely connect to my laptop and then when I finally got it to, it said it was unsuccessful.

    Theres a person on the T-mobile support forums who claims he plugged his 710 in yesterday, and Zune told him he had 4 updates. This could mean that T-mobile is now pushing the Tango update and that we may see it any day now. I just hope it installs.

    Same site, slightly different look and URL. It's T-mobiles own support forums.
    Support: Hey T-Mobile, where is the firmware update for the Lumia 710?

    Regardless, I hope it arrives soon.
