    Cable trick works for LG Optimus 7.

    Set phone to airplane mode and turned off wireless after 3 seconds.

    Hey guys:

    Finally got update on my Lumia 900/ATT in Puerto Rico.

    The Zune force trick works as Konaitor says. But, as stated by Yink Tk, you have to be patient after checking again to pull the Ethernet cable at the right time. Turning off wifi didn't work. If you pull the cable too soon or too late, you'll get an error or the up-to-date message. It worked for me after failing quite a few times and more or less timing it.

    By the way, as Blushrts717 said, there is apparently for some, like me, an update for camera button, then the 7.8.

    Hope you can all get update soon. God bless.

    I got the update on my LG E900! There is hope everyone.

    All I did was.

    Airplane Mode
    Click Update and count until it "checked update" (for me it was 7)
    Click to another page then go back to Update and I counted to 5 and then disconnected internet
    And walla it worked.

    For the next update I counted to 4 to I d/c on 3.

    Also, once the update is found and you click install update, reconnect your internet because it needs to download the update! If not it will cancel and you'll have to start over again.

    Phone now says 7.10 8858.136 is this the final update? Or am I going to have to keep doing this check, disconnect thing over and over again? This is the stupidest way of updating software I have ever heard of. Sorry to be short but, been trying to get this done since about 3:00 and it is now after 6:00. Only takes a few minute to update but, hours to finally get the update.

    To those who updated a Lumia 900 on AT&T, how many updates did you get? I got two, update for phones without camera button, then 7.8. I had to pull the cable for each one, but ran out of time at work and came home. Is there also a firmware update? Thanks.

    FYI, If you are trying to use the Bluetooth Share App it still does not work on 7.8.

    Nokia support told me that it is not supported on 7.8 at all, and even trying to install the app from the marketplace will great you with a message that it is not supported.

    This is jumping through hoops, but I don't believe I've seen AT&T say that the update has been officially released. We are all trying to jump the queue.

    I did the Zune Trick and got it all updated.

    I don't see much of a difference save for being able to change the size of the tiles.

    Or you can just wait for the phone to prompt you there's an update and then proceed to install?

    The cable trick is just for those who are impatient to get the update but their phones are not yet provisioned on MS side.

    My update has been stuck on step 6 of 9 (Restarting your phone) for almost an hour now. Should I worry yet? Should I cancel out? (L900, AT&T)

    It really is a trick of the timing but I finally got my Lumia 900 updated by doing a "thousand one, thousand two" count then yanking the cable.

    I took YINK TKs advise. I was patient and finally notified of an update. The process took around 1/2 hour. But I noticed something weird. It just said "Nokia Update for windows phone". (no os # or anything.) Then, in the description it had two items: 1) Provides support for phones without a physical camera button. 2) Provides other windows phone improvements. TO MY SHOCK, THE UPDATE FINISHED "SUCCESSFULLY", AND NO NEW START SCREEN OR ANYTHING OTHER VISIBLE!!! NOW I JUST WANT TO SMASH THE PHONE. ANY HELP?????
    There's 3 updates total. You just got the first update. :-/

    Updated to 7.8 on Lumia 900 AT&T through ethernet cable disconnect trick. It worked great with airplane mode On. There was an update before the 7.8 update.
