I just updated my LG optimus 7 to 7.8 a few sec ago. here are the pictures to prove it and ofcourse the link on how to do it. So, after all, seems like all WP7 devices are getting this update!

That's great news! No luck on my Optus Optimus 7 here in Aus but it would appear that even for phones confirmed to get the update that it isn't available on all the servers yet.

I'll keep trying.

I'm getting the updates too now. Currently installing the 2nd update. So for anyone in Australia with an unbranded E900, I can confirm that 7.8 is available. Several others here have successfully updated to 7.8 as well.

the 7.8 update cab is missing some important features like Bing lock screen and others. So better force the official update dude!

good luck

Unhappy Can't get my phone to update LG Optimus E900
Hi, I am based in the UK with a European model and can't upgrade to 7.8 (LG Optimus E900)

I've tried the force update method, no joy and the manual cab method but it just says can't find applicable package....

Any ideas please?

Thanks

you have to put the cabs in the same folder as the bat file of the cab sender - and dont execute the bat with admin-rights or the installation will fail

Hi, thanks however I have tried the force update method several times as well as ensuring all the cabs are in as per the manual update instructions including ensuring the right language packs are there but still get exactly the same error as before.. no applicable packages... guess I'll have to give up for the time being and try again in a couple of weeks or so...

Angry What has 80072FA8 error or just no update found!
On this time I tried a long time update with disconnect trick. But... no updates.
NOW... from FIRST time update was found!

Solution:
yeah... first of all good things happen to UK. So we will use UK proxy.
Go to Settings - mobile network , then edit apn. In "APN, Username, Password" I typed my provider settings. In "Proxy server/URL" type 109.169.40.229 and in "Proxy port" type 8080. Here Done.
Next step: in computer STILL connected internet, in phone wifi is disconnected.
And last step: in Zune click update. Waiting about ~2 minutes, because proxy is very slow.
Result:


Thanks for UK proxy
