Can somebody help me with the update. Nokia care suite detected my phone however it doesnt show my product code. And ncs doesnt go online either... Is there somethinf missjng i should do first? Can someone email me the details tutorial please at firstname.lastname@example.org
Really hoping this gets rapid carrier approval too - 7.8 doesn't bring us up to WP8 but the UI enhancements will really make a difference to me.
I'm sure there will be an unofficial wp 8 port for wp 7.8 devices.
AnonD-77902, 16 Dec 2012is there any update after it having name wp7.9 ?Yes, a Nokia document containing information about a possible upgrade to a 7.9 version was leaked, but nothing officially anounced yet!

All smartphone can be rooted depending on the capacity of the phone and the requirements of the costume os. But it's unofficial, if anything fails you can use your warranty.

Download it to a folder of your choice. Download and install Nokia Care Suite. Copy the downloaded content to C:\Product Data\Nokia\Products\RM-801 (change this folder name as per Lumia 800/710/610/900 etc)
Then launch Nokia Care Suite and open the Product Support Tool.
Set to No Connection. as the SW needs to automatically detect the phone. Then select File->Open Product-->Select your product.
Go to Programming and select Refurbish. If the SW detected phone correctly then the START will be active and then click on it. 5-6 Minutes you have your WP7.8
If Refurbish is not working, then go for Recovery this will work. any doubt ask here I shall respond....

Gingerbread was the latest android version during its release. Im talking about low end droids like the mini and fit that are stuck with 2.3.

WP7 phones have similar hardware to WP8 phones and yet, you can only upgrade up to 7.8. They are forcing you to buy their newer crap. Wrong move for MS/Nokia.
Dont compare this to Gingerbread - ICS situation. Anroid 2.3 phones cannot be upgraded to ICS because of Hardware limitations (screen size/RAM/processor/etc..). This is not the case for WP phones since we all know that WP7 phones can easily run WP8 firmware and WP doesn't really require powerful hardware.
I upgraded my Lumia 900 to WP7.8 via Nokia Care Suite.
Yes, yes, I know that the firmware not is official yet, but it is working well on my L900!

Cannot even share posts on your own time line. People Hub cannot even allow one to view full photo album from a pic posted unless you exit people hub and go into picture hub of that person and look for the correct album.
Is totally lame.
