    Just did an HTC Mozart, another three update marathon but runs really well. Forcing it seemed trickier as the time window seemed smaller, I had to cancel out a few times then come back in, run a check, get told it was not there then do the recheck, cable pull etc.

    Proved again that not putting it in flight mode stops it.

    HTC Trophy (WP 7.5)
    Samsung ATIV S (WP 8)

    The Trophy has pretty much been relegated to "Playing Games on the Train" territory, as my WP7 games didn't port across to my WP8 (And I don't want to pay for FF again!)

    Will keep attacking and hope I get it as mines a HTC OEM handset

    and after a few hrs of attacking and 3 updates later I have WP7.8 on my handset Love the baby tiles but they didn't have to make the bigger ones even bigger! Boots much faster and seems more responsive now as well which is good )

    Sounds about right - all the same I'm happy as I am, no great need for anything that comes along with WP8

    I'm happy with mine as well tbh it works well most of the time but has its moments but the newer OS might have fixed that hopefully :-)

    I think I'll wait for the second gen of WP8 devices, running "8.5" or whatever it'll be called, let them iron the bugs out of 8.0 and include the features that they've lost from 7.x by not using Zune, like playlist creation/podcast sync. They need to improve their Windows 8 app apparently. :-)
