    I have the unlocked ATT I677 Focus Flash on Simple Mobile (i also have a net10 sim but can only get either data just working or just mms working not both on net10)
    I successfully used the forced update trick with zune twice which updated me to 7.10.8773.98
    Now everytime I try the same trick on my Dell Latitude D630 Windows 8 Pro x64 (same laptop that let up get upto 7.10.8773.98) it either tells me I am have the latest version or that it can not connect to the internet... I have been trying for 2 days straight for hours and hours and hours... I just cant get this up give the update.... This is what I have done...

    Turn off Wifi
    Turn off Cellurar
    Plug in phone Zune lauched
    goto settings then update
    count the seconds until it says i have the latest update
    then click on something else
    then click on update to count seconds again
    then click on something else
    then click on update to count the seconds again
    then click on something else
    then click on update to count seconds again
    then click on something else
    then click on update to count seconds again
    then click on something else
    then click on update to count seconds again
    then click on something else
    then click on update to count seconds again
    Then once I am sure that the seconds are the same.. which they never are sometimes they are off by a second or two or three..
    Then I disconnect by sliding the wifi switch to the off position
    Then I get either you have the latest or cant connect.....
    this is silly.....

    what is going on....

    Did you ever get a response about this? I'm pulling my hair out trying to get the update.

    If you want 7.8 and have a AT&T Branded Focus Flash, It is best to use the 7.8 Tool and install the update that way.

    remember to select all languages or else you will run into problems..

    The 7.8 tool should not cause any problems has worked fine for most. Just select all the languages each time after every update that it gives you and you should be fine.
