Thumbs up Awesome method for HTC Titan x310e - worked a treat

Tested by many, worked for most of them!

Bit the bullet and went for it! Success.

Got fed up with waiting around for Micro$oft and HTC to finish d!cking around deciding if they are going to release this stuff or not. It seems they can't even decide through their own official website announcements what's going on, and both seem to contradict each other. HTC need a big lesson on customer relations, and responding positively, and keeping former promises about updates, or many of us long term HTCers are likely to move to the Nokia side of the Force.

Anyway, moving on from the corporate politics...
Ran this on a factory-supplied unlocked HTC Titan X310e, and it worked an absolute treat... 25 minutes of loading various updates, but no problems noted thus far. The only thing I did notice was the HTC hub icon not acting in live mode in either large or medium tile size (just goes dark). Maybe that's just a refresh issue, but not really bothered - it's only an icon to launch the real app. Resized it small fort he HTC logo, so I know what it does if I need it.

It will ask you to install the Dev Kit first (5 minutes tops) and that installs all automatic, then relaunch 7-8er, choose language pack (be careful to scroll down the full list if you want English UK), and just watch it update. Remember to enter your PIN after it reboots after each incremental upload so the next stage can run.

Brilliant work.
Phone technical details:
HTC Touch Pro 2 (HTC unlocked version) WM6.5 Pro.
Official HTC ROM version 1.86.401.0 (67102) WWE
ROM date 09/25/09
Radio version: 4.49.25.17

No idea what it all means, but the tech's often ask me for it... saves re-typing each time

Yes, it does show that on the screen for what seems like a good 5-8 minutes... just be patient and let it do its thing... eventually the white progress bar will start moving across the top of the screen.

aww man... "Exception error in updateWP..." something like that happened right now in the middle of it.... now the progress bar is just stuck... uh oh!

edit : So i restarted my copmputer, restarted my phone because it looked like update didint even start because my phone still said 7.5, then i connected my phone to try this again.... after a while, it says update completed... then it downloaded and installed something again, progress bar completed and my phone again said update completed and looks like it finished fine! what a great tool!! but tool never has correct status of what it is doing. The wholle update it just said "restarting your phone"

very nice

I update my phone using SevenEighter a few days back. It was working fine until yesterday. Afther update i noticed my phone is restaring abnormally. Yesterday night colors where messed out in background screen and after restart it was fine.
Later My phone made again abnormal restart and didnt wake up any more!! Was just showing Nokia logo and thats it. After serval minutes it made continious restarts. So i figured out that problem may be related to Lumia 800 Battery issues what has happened with many people! (My phone is 3 days old). Today i downloaded original RM ending .. 12070 and i was able to recover using nokia care suite. thank god!
So my question to you guys is have you noticed same thing happening with your phone? Also does wp7.8 contain any kind battery fix like 7.5 has? I liked 7.8 much but if im not able to use it and it ruins my device i´ll stay on 7.5.

I flashed 7.8 on my 710 using NaviFirm and downloader.exe and last night I got the exact same problem

The background of the homescreen covered all the tiles, all tiles were under the background, then some tiles appeared but most were still gone

Rebooted the phone and everything is fine again

It must be a 7.8 bug, not the method we update them
