Microsoft reportedly starts rolling out Windows Phone 7.8 update

Reports have been flooding in detailing an update for Windows Phone 7.5, which can only mean one thing - Microsoft has begun rolling out Windows Phone 7.8 for those who own previous generation hardware. Windows Phone Central readers, as well as WP7.nl have received notification of an available release on the Lumia 800.

Windows Phone 7.8 is a major update that Microsoft announced alongside Windows Phone 8. The release is to implement new features on legacy hardware, including the new start screen Live Tile layout and other goodies. Those who have managed to receive and apply the 7.8 update have noticed a new splash screen and Xbox Live Tile that are present on Windows Phone 8.

Windows Phone 7.8 Update

According to WP7.nl, the update process for the Lumia 800 includes a number of builds as well as a Nokia update. Reported OS version 7.10.8773 is bumped to 7.10.8779.8, and is then proceeded with the update to 7.10.8783. This then prepares the device for the final update to 7.10. 8858.136. Welcome to almost-Windows Phone 8.

We're yet to get our Windows Phones to register the update, so be sure to let us know if you've received the one in the comments, along with which Windows Phone you're using and carrier (if applicable) you're with.

[Note: This could be a staggered rollout, dependent on carriers and OEMs, so don't get your hopes too high just yet. Microsoft has yet to announce anything official about this occurring, meaning this is still limited to just a few users and phones.]

Thanks everyone who tipped us!

  • Great, I already flashed my phone but with this I'll update my mother's phone without losing her info
  • It's too bad 7.8 doesn't have official support for SMS backup. I've finally ended up just unlocking my phone and installed the homebrew SMS backup tool. Now that I've sucessfully unlocked my phone, I don't want to risk updating to 7.8 and not having those apps working anymore.
  • Now we just need someone to capture the CAB files...
  •   Love my job, since I've been bringing in $5600… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I'm making it online(Click on menu Home) https://goo.gl/uIzTk
  • I hope you get Lou Gehrig's disease and die horribly and alone.
    That is all.
  • LOL!!
  • this is just hitting unlocked phones, unencumbered by shyster carriers.  You will not see this on ATT this year...if ever.
  • Yeah, I doubt ATT will ever release it.
  • Amen! :-(
  • Although you are probably right and I am not holding my breath. I have faith that Nokia will at least try everything they can to get at&t to bring it to Nokia phones judging on the fact that Nokia is still giving excellent support for those of us still on wp7 and haven't been leaving us out in the cold.
  • Not if you have Nokia
  • If any phone is going to receive it on Att, its going to be the 900. If I had an HTC or Samsung phone (and I did) I wouldn't get my hopes up.
  • Remember-ATT has to "test" it for 4 months!
  • +1
  • or for a year...  Our only hope is for Nokia (or Microsoft) to push AT&T hard.  Otherwise we may never get it.
  • Nokia phones should get it in a week or 2 on AT&T. For some reason AT&T actually releases Lumia updates. All other WP manufacturer devices will have to wait months or never get it.
  • That's for sure.  They won't let me upgrade my Focus firmware beyond 7.10.7720.  I'm surprised they gave us 7.5 at all.  I'm not holding my breath for 7.8.  God forbid someone doesn't sign a 2 year contract for a new WP8 phone because 7.8 would hold them over until more phones and phablets (hopefully) hit the market later this year......
     
  • If you have Omnia 7 on Tmobile UK, not a chance. I have yet to get the update that fixes the disappearing keyboard bug. Oh well, unlocked Ativ S will arrived on Tuesday =D
  • Pretty sure I have the keyboard bug fix... Never have an issue with it anyway, and I have the same phone/network
  • Unfortunately useless T-Mobile haven't pushed any updates for over a year now. A T-Mobile branded Omnia 7, like mine, will still be saddled with build 7740 which has the disappearing keyboard issue. I've complained to them many times, but they simply don't care.
    I can upgrade in Feb next year, and with T-Mobile I'm not expecting to receive 7.8 before I switch to WP8.
     
  • Not true... I have every update for my T-Mo HD7.
  • I've been wondering if 1st Gen devices like my venerable Samsung Focus will be getting this update at all. Hears conflicting reports, some say only the 2nd wave (Tango-era) devices and beyond, others have said ALL 7.x devices will be updatable. Which is it?
  • if you are on ATT, think of the worst possible scenario and that's what you will get.
  • THIS
  • All devices will be update...also de original WP7 from back in 2010...and by second generation you must be meaning mango? E.g. WP 7.5 update
  • no you are wrong.  The Quantum and the DVP wont be getting it for starters.
  • Wonder if the focus will...
  • Yeah they will.
  • What?! The Quantum is not recieving 7.8? Noooooooooo :(
    Where did you get this news from?
  • I think there are already roms available that you can use on your device... you should check xda =)
  • The Focus is the OG Windows phone that came to the market when the Nokias were still thinking about WP7. For most of us, the focus as our first Windows phone that didnt suck. It would be an honour if the OG WP got 7.8. And it would really show that Microsoft keeps their word when they said that all devices would always recieve updates irregardless
  • All WP 7.x devices are updateable (like with Mango and Tango) but the chances of carriers/OEMs releasing the update to the OG devices like the Focus, don't even bother. You'll have to force update it if the CAB files become available.
  • If you have an unlocked Focus, you can get the 7.8 over at XDA Developers... I've been running it for a while now.
  • Hmm, i wonder if my old Optimus 7 will get this update.
  • I'm really hoping it will, but I read somewhere that LG won't be updating the Optimus 7 anytime. :(
  • This is sadly what I read a while ago. LG won't be releasing firmware updates to support WP 7.8.
     
    I already took the plunge to WP8 with an HTC 8X but It would be great to have my Optimus 7 updated to 7.8 so I can sell it quicker.
  • I have an HTC Arrive, so that means I'll be waiting for cab files to be released.
  • Same here :)
  • I'm in the same boat. All of the phones that I've had on Sprint have always fallen by the wayside when it comes to updates.
  • Sprint! (read: Potter!) =)
  • Finally!
  • Reads article, hopes skyrocket...then remembers I'm on AT&T...FML
  • Is this limited to U.S.A. or staggered worldwide? Any ideas?
  • Since this news is also originating from a Dutch website (WP7.nl), it is either world wide or maybe limited to Europe.
  • Not so fast, the update will be delivery to various carriers, then throttling control to push update notification to devices. At least, the update will be available to all 7.5 devices at Q1 2013.
  • Anyone tried the classic old update trick in Zune software yet?
  • I tried it with no success. It can only work thou if the update is already available in your country. The cable tick only allows you to get the update even if your not part of the first batch.
  • yeah, tried it too...no update availible. In my country meaning the country I currently reside in or the country my Live ID is registered. Cause my Windows Live ID is from Switzerland, but I moved to Singapore 3 months ago. :/
  • Yep tried ... No luck yet
  • I hate the unplug-network-cable trick, it is sooo difficult to control the timing!!
  • It worked! Thank you so much for reminding me about that trick! (HTC Trophy Unlocked)
  • Oh ya staggered
  • What OEM?? I can only see it for Nokia and strangely its for all of their devices and not for even a single non Nokia, atleast yet. What does it say?
    There are whole new Nokia experience, from bluetooth sharing to ringtone out of any DRM free music on phone, additional extras coming and updates to 2-3 in house apps.
    What HTC and Samsung doing?
  • I think HTC and Samsung Windows Phone will have the update soon :) I'm waiting for it for my HTC Titan X310e that really needs a great update to have an issue for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth problems...
  • Nothing on my unbranded UK Lumia 800 yet...
  • I live in India, i got call yesterday from npd employee. He said i m invited to updated my 610 to wp7.8. I called nokia care of my city confirm. He said yes its available. But i couldn't update it today coz its sunday. But i go to npd and talked to that employee who called me. He shown me 510, 710, & 800 all running on 7.8 and actually had bt file sharing and ringtone maker apps. I will be going tomorrow at 10am ist to update my lumia and will tell u more abt it.
  • NPD employee means???
  • Nokia Proprity Dealer.
    Authorized Nokia shop.
  • Where in India ? I'm from Mumbai ! I'll also check with my nearby NPD store and see but do confirm your location
     
     
  • Zune WiFi trick?
  • Tried on both 900 and Focus S, no go.
  • tried on my HTC HD7, nothing there :/
  • Thanks guys
  • that Titan actually still looks really good..even better with wp7.8
  • Hi, I am using HTC Titan Pi39100 and using wp 7.5
    Is there a way I can install wp 7.8 ?? I am using this in New Delhi....pls advise.
     
    Thnx.
     
  • Nothing on a carier free Omnia W from India
  • Same here :( I am too  using Omnia W 
  • Well, I've an omnia w too. This is just the similar situation for Tango update. The update for Samsung came about 4-5 days after the updates for nokia started appearing on navifirm. So, we have time until EoD, Wednesday for our hopes :)
  • Spoke to samsung, no update for us! :(
  • Same here.No updates..i am also using Omnia W...
  • Those who say AT&T won't get the update are complete idiots. EVERYONE will get the update. ESPECIALLY Nokia Devices. Get your facts straight before you post stupid nonsense and try to get everyone's hopes destroyed, please.
  • Unfortunately it's AT&T's history with WP updates that has brought our hopes down.
  • I know but we must have hope!!!!! ;)
  • haha, you've not been around very long have you?  The only update ATT pulled off without a hitch was Mango, and that's because MS publiclly shamed them with the where's my update page.
  • Strategy is to hold off any cool updates for old phones. Reason is that they want you to buy a new phone. for that they get to own your soul for another 2 years.
    Good business, lousy customer Focus (no pun intended :-) )
  • I already have 7.10.8779.8 !! I still need 7.10.8783 and then 7.10. 8858.136 !
  • And when is Verizon getting this? Specifically the trophy.
  • +1
    "specifically for the trophy" ;)
  • Yeah, what they said. lol.
  • Anyone with a Trophy get anything? I can't check until later tonight.
  • Nothing yet :-(
  • Hahaha exactly.
  • I want this update sooo bad for my Trophy!!
  • The HTC Trophy is adored by almost everyone who has one. 7.8 would make it even better!
  • No update, yet.
  • HTC has it listed on there website. http://www.htc.com/us/support/htc-trophy-verizon/software-updates
  • I have the trophy on verizon (unlocked) and got the update. Had to do the unplug-the-net trick.
  • Any luck for focus flash users?
    I haven't updated my device to the last firmware update since it removed the hability to interop unlock...
     
    So I'm not able to check =P
  • Nothing here yet for my focus flash either.
  • Hope for the best..
  • Does it add the wifi keep alive feature??
     
  • No
  • India Samsung Boys... anything???
  • Those screen shots of the titan are a bit wrong. The outlook tile sports the new 2013 icon. The Zune icon is still on the update not the Xbox one. I am running the updated software on my Unlocked Nokia Lumia 800 UK. Can't see much difference in settings but I do love the new tiles and accent colours. The like is Zune does double size the tiles. Enjoy folks
  • that's a mocked up photo....not the actual update.
  • I don't think that's a mock. I think it's a Titan with an old 7.8 custom rom.
  • That's what I thought.
  • http://www.wpcentral.com/windows-phone-78   look at the caption
  • Hey1 I've got a UK unlocked 800... Where's my update!!
  • Oh yeah, the office icon is updated and drive for Nokias is updated. None of the Bluetooth apps are available yet. I want to see developers take advantage of the sized tiles as well.
  • Just checked with zune but there is no update for the Samusung Omnia W in India.
  • nothing on my lumia 800 too....guess i'll just have to use navifirm
  • nothing on my 710 - T-mobile...
  • Nothing for my non-branded HTC Titan X310e (European version)
  • nothing on my omnia 7 - three uk. Anybody else in the uk had any luck?
  • nothing for the Samsung Omnia W in India...just checked:(
  • I already had a 7.8 rom running on Focus, 1.3 , so you could always do it yourself if Att doesnt
  • 1.3 is THE original Focus, right? I'd love to update mine. Where did you get the ROM?
  • Xda developers have a few for the original focus
  • Damn, just sent my Lumia 800 in for warranty repair. It will be nice to have both my Lumia 920 and 800 running essentially the same OS.
  • But it's not the same os purely cosmetic.
  • nothing here either in germany on my lumia 800, Telekom
  • Rich Edmonds, is this update for USA or worldwide??
  • Can someone, anyone please tell me if I connect HTC Titan (SIM unlocked on TELUS here in Canada) to Zune and search for update when 7.8 comes out, will it find it or do I have to travel to the states, have my phone connected while Roaming on AT&T then search for the update? Anything helps now. I haven't been able to update to Tango either as Zune says there are no updates available.
  • You don't have to travel to the states! Zune doesn't care where you are. That said, you will receive the update only when AT&T deploys it, as your phone is still identified as AT&T. I updated my first gen HTC HD7 from T-Mobile (using it on Wind Mobile) from Zune for each update, for example.
  • You are my hero. Thank you for clarifying it and simple at that too.
  • I am using Nokia 710, unlock with straight talk service att.mvno. I wonder if we can get the up through Zune phone update...
  • Come on Rogers, lets get this update moving!
  • Have we actually heard from Microsoft yet? I think not. Every update rumor has Nokia attached to it somehow. It's December. Microsoft should be able to at least confirm something other than "coming soon."
  • Cool, time to feverishly plug my Focus II in hourly for the next 4 months, hahaha!
  • Nothing for HTC Titan or Lumia 800 in the UK :-(
  • Hopeing we will see win7.8 on the original ATT Samsung Focus at some point, not holding my breath but would love to get the update.
    And before anyone starts its time to get a new phone, not everyone has bough the phone at launch and for many people their 2y contract is still not up.
    Microsoft should provide the update direct and cut out the damn carriers.
     
     
  • If you don't own a Nokia Lumia 800 or a locked Nokia Lumia 800 here is a small Tutorial how you can Flash your Device to have the Official Windows Phone 7.8 on it :)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oe93uV1KY9w
  • Argh I still haven't gotten my portico or firmware update for my Verizon 8X. :'(
  • LoL. I regard such posts as yours as a kind of bragging about already having WP8. Guess we gonna see that kind of post in every bigger WP7 related thread in the future ;)
  • My Lumia 800 is running this now :)
  • Was it as flashed rom or Zune update?
  • Flashed from Nokia Care Suite. My phone is an unbranded and unlocked version so it found the write firmware automatically and flashed it. I gotta say I reckon there's a bit of a speed boost in this OS if that's possible...may be a placebo effect but this phone is flying...even more than before.
  • if its a flashed version why would you comment this here, people are waiting for the real deal, you made me almost believe that its out. :'(
  • But it is the real deal from Nokia's servers. Its not as if it is a dodgy copy or something :P i put it on my girlfriends Lumia 800 yesterday and she's loving it!!
  • Bet ya Europe will release it this month and other large carries such as Verizon and AT&T will release it on January or February due to their "restrictions"
  • I updated my Lumia 900 here in Brazil with that custom rom from navifirm and it's really awesome!!!
    With new yellow live tiles bigger and smaller It's very impressive!!
  • Nothing yet on my swedish unloced L900 :( 
  • Damn cant wait to get the update on my Samsung Focus.  Really want that new start screen
  • Why does ATT need to test anything? I thought this and future updates were going to be Microsoft OTA. Am I mistaken?
  • Indeed you are probably mistaken it seems :/
  • Pretty sure WP8 and later will be OTA no Carrier, but WP7.8 and 7.x will require carrier.
  • is the "Nokia Update" included in the firmware from navifirm?
    are there any apps like bt sharing in this "official" update?
  • Not that I've seen but the apps will probably be released via the Nokia Collection the the marketplace...
  • My wifes Lumia 800 (unlocked, UK) just updated and the update WASN'T WP7.8 
    Edit: OK it's now downloading another. Will update accordingly
  • Tell us what you got? Are you upgrading it with Zune?
  • With whatever it's called on Mac. She got an update notification a few hours back, we're now on update download number 3 and still not at 7.8 yet lol
  • from what I read, it will be the last one (4th update) that is 7.8 :) good luck! keep us informed
  • No joy. Three updates brings it to 7.10.8773.98. So her phone must have been horrifically non-updated. Three updates and it's stalled. No more showing up :(
  • loooool, you actually were on a really old version :P, i still dought that this rolling out news is just fake
  • The initial post says it upgrades it in 3 steps, so I guess you are on a right way ;-)
  • The initial post says it upgrades it in 3 steps, so I guess you are on a right way ;-)
     
  • Nothing on My mothers 710 or my old 710 (which would make it easier to sell since i recently upgraded to a 920) and my brother is yet to check his 800, hopefully its pushed out soon as my brother loves my start screen and would love to customise his
  • Hope its available for my 900
  • I've flashed the 1750.823.8858.12460 for a retail british 800 onto my 059N2P7.
    Can't see antyhing new new besides the Start Screen and Bing Wallpaper. There's no kid's corner and no sign of any new Nokia apps like BT sharing.
    No changes in Zune. Office and Xbox have new logos but are otherwise unchanged.
    And what really sucks: there's no "share" or "rate and review" option in the app menu. That kind of little stuf that should've been included two years ago is still missing in WP 7.8  
  • i have the "rate and review" option in the app menu. (lumia 800 wp7.8).
    maybe the next version wp7.x will have more features of wp8.
  • Uhm, my bad.  Its seems there is no "rate and review" for preloaded apps, The option is there for new apps (I was too lazy to sign into live and install one). However there's still no sharing option in that handy menu. Let alone built-in contact sharing.
  • i have the bluetooth share app
    Lumia 800 unlocked india
  • And where do you have it from? I can't see it neither in the Nokia Collection nor amongst the preinstalled apps in the UK Country Variant ROM.
  • It was preinstalled after I flashed using navifirm and Nokia care suite.
  • Aren't you maybe confusing the old contact share app or contact transfer app with the upcoming file share app?
  • I have the Bluetooth share app. Installed Argentina's country variant I think
  • Are you by any chance able to share the marketplace link for it?
  • Well... i don't think so o.o
    It was already here after I flashed my L710
  • I've replaced the UK variant ROM with German and it's much better. No third party crapware and has the BT share app instead. Can succesfully send photos back and forth between an 800 and 820. It's nice that WP phones can be paired without manually entering PINs, that makes the process much faster.
  • Still nothing on my Lumia 800 (in Portugal, but bought unlocked from Deutsche Telekom)
  • .
  • Nothing for my HTC Titan or my son's Nokia 710 in the UK, will try again in the morning 
  • Nothing on my Lumia 800, 3 Sweden
  • Was trying the cabletrick and it seems to be that Zune doesn't even bother trying to connect to anything, because when im offlince and search for updates, it tells me i'm uptodate even thou it can't know. Zune lies.
  • You need to put your phone into Airplane mode, otherwise Zune doesn't bother checking itself :)
  • Nothing in Australia, HD7 and Titan 4G[II]
  • +1.... Come on Rogers!!!!
  • Nope I got nothing yet on my Verizon HTC Trophy.. ,:-(
  • Doubt it will come early to Rogers in Canada, we're always last in everything.
  • Couldn't wait for the update...so updated using navifirm.
    here is what i can see has changed
    resizable tiles
    New splash screen at startup
    new office icon
    square notification tile count
    bluetooth share
    ringtone maker
    new maps icon
    new xbox icon
    lockscreen music controls are no longer present
    also nokia forgot to change the marketplace icon for the small tile
    20 accent colors
    Bing wallpaper
  • I'm really looking forward to the update and the resizeable tiles but thats about It.
    The rest is just fun or unuseable crap. (I know im getting hanged for saying this   )
     
    resizable tiles  THIS I LOVE!! New splash screen at startup FOR WHAT USE???? new office icon FOR WHAT USE???? square notification tile count WHAT IS THIS? A NOTIFICATIONCENTER OR JUST A COUNTER bluetooth share THIS I LOVE!! ringtone maker  NICE TO HAVE BUT NOT NEED TO HAVE new maps icon FOR WHAT USE???? new xbox icon FOR WHAT USE???? lockscreen music controls are no longer present THIS I LOVE!! also nokia forgot to change the marketplace icon for the small tile  20 accent colors NICE TO HAVE BUT NOT NEED TO HAVE Bing wallpaper NICE TO HAVE BUT NOT NEED TO HAVE
     
    All in all i'm disapointed. If this is all we get instead of WP8 Nokia and MS has not given us what was promissed.
    There a more features in WP8 that is not hardware related that could be included in WP7.8
    Where is ROOMS
    Where is KIDS CORNER

  • is there an "ease of access" in settings for the wp 7.8? pls... i woukd like to know... tnx...
  • did u really got the bluetooth share function ?? @Anuj Halakhandi
  • yep...lumia 800 india cyan
  • No update in Romania (Vodafone LG Optimus 7)
  • I hope that we aren’t being trolled.
  • i think we were, no comment, shows any confirmation on the update, but the flashers, other than that nothing, on anywebsite, or twitter, so i guess we got trolled.
  • I have the impression that we were...
  • Yeah...no other site reports that there is an update...also there is no official confirmation from MS
  • I think we are rather teased than trolled. The update definitely is ready and is being stalled by carrier approval. It is plausible that MS started testing deployment on a small batch or possibly internally, and that can be an MS employee's phone.
  • No update for my Titan II and when I called HTC they told me that they even don't know when they will start updating to wp 7.8.... it's diasppointing.
  • yeah i emailed them too telling me about th at&t testing excuse blah blah blah...  i havent gotten tango yet...

  • you get nokia lenses, with cinemagraph and stuff, which is cool, after all, they wont give you windows phone 8, not is the 7.8 the last update, atleast one more is coming 
  • i didn't get nokia lenses...is it a dowloadable app??
  • yes its like the camera extras i guess
  • its just a new counter...also you can change your search engine in IE to Google. @mads333
  • What do you mean by a new counter? Do I have an old counter? 
    I'm not sure what it is for a counter.
    And yes I forgot about Nokia Lenses and THIS I LOVE!!
    But they once said  they would bring all non hardwarerelated stuff from WP8 to WP7.8
    I know I dont get NFC, Woreless charging and so, but I want ROOMS and KIDS CORNER!!!!
     
  • On 7.5 unread notification count was shown in a circle..
    Now it's shown in a square box
  • Nothing on the HD7 - Open Market, India
     
     
  • Nokia stated to Tweakers.net that the official 7.8 update will roll out in 2013. And that the people who are getting the update notification trough Zune are using a pre-production or test models and not a retail model Source (dutch) : http://tweakers.net/nieuws/86148/nokia-windows-phone-78-update-is-nog-ni...
  • Ah... So maybe I just stop plugging my phone into my mac every twenty minutes then
  • Does anyone know if Windows 7.8 will include the same Ease of Access settings as Windows Phone 8?  More specifically if it'll have the options to resize your text.
  • A tweet I had from @htcuk @gamer_gareth The official announcement from Windows is out and we are currently working with them to see when we will be able to support it
  • Nothing so far. Unlocked dvp in the US.
  • Just update yourself using navifirm, I did and it great, exactly what I had hoped
  • Just plugged mine into Zune and it says phone up to date.....7.10.
  • Will a message come up on our phone somewhere?
  • Yup.
  • I'm from India and I officially got an update from the Nokia care store. They called me to notify about the update and now I have an updated lumia 800 in my hand.
    From Mumbai
  • Hey m from Delhi ..plz confirm me today at what time u got d update..and plz chk is it the official wp7.8 update?? R u able to use bluetooth file transfer now? What all new u got?
  • Is there any way to update an ATT Lumia 900?  
     
    Is there any NaviFirm update that will work for us U.S, ATT Lumia 900 owners?
     
    I'm using Straight Talk and I know the update system still thinks my phone is ATT.  I'd be willing to wait for the update from ATT, but I'm sure I'll be old and gray before they release it.  
  • No ROMs for the RM-808 have been published yet.
  • Samsung Focus v1.3  AT&T Unlocked
    Nothing here!
  • Nothing for my Verizon Trophy but, waiting on the cab...I'm sure very, very soon. I already have the 7.8 rom but, it's the earlier rom, it works perfect but, there are sometimes tile issues (shrinking a large tile wont go back to large).
    All the guys over at XDA need to find the path for the 7.8 cab files when someone downloads it, and capture them. Then we all can have it now (unlocked phone at least).... Watch this thread...

    This is the offical cab update thread, if it hits, it will show up here first...
  • Canada, Telus, Lumia 610 and 800 in the family.  No joy yet!  I am still waiting for the latest firmware update for the 610  that was supposed to be released in October.  
  • WPCentral... You need to stop posting the AT&T branded HTC Titan everytime there is news about WP7.8. The article is clearly about the Lumia 800... you probably should have posted this article with a picture of one of those...
  • Seems like the 7.8 release was a false alarm...only for pre-production devices

  • Good news guys. I have updated my Nokia Lumia 800 with windows 7.8 (1750.0823.8858.12460). Its amazing. Earlier I had lots of problem with applications like Metro, Whatsapp, BBC etc. Now all problems resolved. I tied to update using Navifirm several times. Surpisingly my phone got updated very easily with Nokia Care Suite 5.0 without Navifirm.  I am trying to post the process of update. But I am getting this message Your submission has triggered the spam filter and will not be accepted.
