Force update from 7.5 to 7.8
Posting this as requested by SYNACK. :D
Hi, my names Jon and I've been a user of Windows Phone since Nov 2011, when I got my first smartphone, a HTC Titan running WP7.5...
Ok, enough of sounding like an AA meeting, here's what you all want to know:
Window Phone - Force Update

The site does talk about updating from 7.0 to 7.5, but the method still works. It does take a little practise to get the timing right, but it does work, so stick with it!! Since the upgrade I have noticed no issues, but I have only be upgraded since last Wednesday night. YMMV.
Some key points that help:
1) Put phone in flight mode.
2) easier using either ethernet cable, or laptop with a switch for the wifi.
3) Approximately 2-4 seconds seems to be the sweet spot.
Love the update, taken too long to get out IMHO, but will now tide me over until my upgrade this Nov. So better later than never :D
Anyway, I hope this helps all you windows phone users still on 7.5.
