    Just curious if anyone had got it yet via the Zune trick or just an automatic update. Want to know if I'm wasting my time unplugging and replugging. Thanks all :)

    I have also tried repeatedly but still nothing. I don't know if I expect it any time soon since they haven't said anything about Portico for any of the Windows Phone 8 handsets yet. Or at least not that I had heard of.

    What's really annoying about this is that all other trophy's that are unlocked or Vodafone have been able to get it with no problem.

    I waited until now and just used the cab update from XDA and updated to 7.8 and so far so good, it is working well and I am still customizing my start screen! :-)

    Tried several times with the Zune trick, but no luck. Resorted to XDA cabs and was successful. Works great so far. Have not tried the lock screen feature yet.

    I tried the Zune trick via cable pull and ipconfig/release methods a couple dozen times to no avail. It has worked for me in the past so I am guessing it is not up yet.

    No luck for me with the Zune/cable trick either. I tried about a dozen times, also.

    Ok, thank you. Wonder what I'll have to do to fix mine. When I tap "Lockscreen and wallpaper", the screen flashes and it goes back to the settings menu. :(

    Am I missing something here? Are you both saying that you have the 7.8 update on your Verizon Trophys?

    Using the cab method, there's no official update yet.

    Go back to your backup and then redo the cab and see if it works. I put mine in Airplane mode before doing the cabs.
    Also, did you put all the cabs in one shot?
    I did mine one by one update, meaning from 8773 to 8779 --> 3 cab files
    Then did 8779 to 8783 --> 1 cab file
    Then finally 8783 to 8858 --> 4 cab files including 2 language pack (English and Spanish)

    Hope this helps.

    Do you think airplane mode makes a difference? I just redid it your way without airplane mode and the same thing happens (lock screen settings crashes)

    Now that the Trophy has been marked for death (EOL..end of life) by Verizon, I urge everyone to vigorously tweet @Microsoft , @VerizonWireless , @HTC and @HTCUSA and "demand" that the 7.8 update be rolled out. There is power in numbers, we have a voice...use it! They can't slap us in the face like this with no penalty, there is no way that I will buy another HTC device if this is how they are going to treat it's customers.

    I have two spare Verizon Trophy's and that tool linked on the front page (seven eighter) worked flawlessly to upgrade both of them. Neither are activated right now so I can't say they work perfectly fine in terms of calling/radio, however everything appears to be working in terms of the OS. I'd just go that route. It will crash in-between updates after it finishes each one, just close it and start it again. It's only after it completes so it's not dangerous.

    Do we actually have anything official from Verizon in regards to the Trophy and 7.8 update? I could not find anything on their website and I did not see any mention of the Trophy officially marked EOL and no longer supported.
