3. Click update again, then after 3 seconds or so, disconnect internet from your PC
4. repeat steps 2-3 until it finds an update.
5. Once it finds an update, make sure you switch the internet back ON your laptop/PC, otherwise you'll have to repeat all over again!
This process does work! just a few extra notes on my experience
I have sim free UK LG E900 with Giff Gaff sim
For a successful upgrade process I had to;
First delete the giff gaff APN info and create a new apn with just the IP address and port info on page 1
I then had to reboot phone with new apn info
The timing of disconnecting the internet from the windows PC is critical , I have a laptop, with a combination of Function Key and F11 I can disable wireless pretty much instantly , if you disconnect to soon you get the update service is not available error , if you disconnect to slowly you get the Phone is upto date no update required problem , it seems to be somewhere between 2- 3 seconds ( I used to old 1000, 2000, 3000 counting method
and it is somewhere between 2000 and 3000)
In total I had to update 3 times (as per previous post ) in order to get 7.8
But now thanks to the above technique I have a LG E900 at Windows 7.8
