    So my Focus 1.3 still doesnt see the 7.5 update on AT&T. I have been unable to 'force' it using the cable pull method despite trying many many times over the last couple months. I even did a restore to the original firmware and it did download several updates but stopped at 7.0.7392.0.

    Has anyone found another way to get a phone to do the update? (or could I have a bugged phone?)

    I'd take it to an AT&T store (or whatever carrier you're on).

    My old Focus is also stuck on an old version of the OS. I just plugged it in to look for an update two days ago. I'd really like this issue solved.

    This is the primary reason I refused to get a Focus S, even though I liked it so much.

    Wow, that is horrible! I would contact ATT and get them to do something about it. Might be a bad phone somehow; who knows! But they will replace it if you push them hard enough!

    you can update your phone manually to the latest version by using a simple method, it's described in detail on XDA in this thread:
    [CAB] Official WP7 Update list for offline updates: OS (7.10.8107!)/OEM/ALL LANGUAGES - xda-developers

    It's very easy, i have updated my focus to 8107 already, you don't need to have your phone unlocked in anyway to get this done.

    I assume you have tried a hard reset. Usually can cast out any demons in your phone.

    Yeah I did. I even restored it to factory firmware then let it redo the other updates. It still wouldnt pick up the latest 7.5 update.

    I wouldnt mind doing a manual update at this point. Nothing else has worked so far.

    Ugh.. I tried the manual update.. Now my phone won't even connect to my computer.. Sigh.. I can't even give it away without feeling guilty about leaving someone with the impression WP is still like 7004...

    i am going to list the steps from the XDA developer thread, this is the original thread
    [CAB] Official WP7 Update list for offline updates: OS (7.10.8107!)/OEM/ALL LANGUAGES - xda-developers

    1. download the attachment wp7 update tool and install your platform flash tool (x86 or x64)
    2. download the attachment wp7 cab sender archive and extract it to a folder. for eg:
    C:\temp
    3. download the following cab files:
    http://download.windowsupdate.com/ms...491bd65168.cab
    http://download.windowsupdate.com/ms...7bfafec5ac.cab
    http://download.windowsupdate.com/ms...0ca29d0675.cab
    http://download.windowsupdate.com/ms...b428c0566c.cab
    http://download.windowsupdate.com/ms...9fd88f25ab.cab

    Store all of them in the directory where WP7 Update Cab Sender.bat resides, C:\temp\cab sender
    4. download the language file (EN-US)
    http://download.windowsupdate.com/ms...71ac0a0b01.cab

    Place this file also in that batch file location

    5. connect the device and make sure zune is not running
    6. run the batch file and press S
    7. wait for the phone to reboot and the drivers to get installed on the PC.
    8. after a while your phone will display an image with red cross in it, just keep waiting
    9. after sometime you will see progress bar and then the actual update happening.

    NOTE: the red cross will be displaying for sometime don't disconnect it, even if the update tool says connection timeout and times out..

    Im trying this but I get an error:

    ╠══════ Updating device

    The system cannot find the path specified.
    The system cannot find the path specified.
    UpdateWP version 4.8.2134.0

    Error: No update files.


    I do have all the cab files in the same directory as the batch file. Any idea what I'm missing?

    OK, so I figured out that error. I went and downloaded every .cab file on the xda site. (there are a few more than where listed here)

    However, I still got some errors about duplicate files so I started going one at a time. It got me partially updated but then one error out and basically bricked the phone (boot loop). I flashed back to 7004 and this time, for whatever reason, Zune detected the updates all the way up to Mango. The previous time I had flashed to 7004 it did not do that.
