I just used the Seven-Eighter tool to update my TITAN on AT&T -- carrier locked -- and it updated to 7.8, but then I checked the accent colors and there was nothing new. Then I tried to open several apps under settings and they wouldn't open. even the About screen wouldn't launch. After looking around it seems that some of the posts and articles on the site say that the Titan only uses English installed, but I found out that it has EVERY language installed. I tried several times selecting all the languages but now when I select them it always errors out and says update unsuccessful. however when I don't select any language it seems to update but doesn't fix the issue. I only selected English the first time because several articles about updating says that the AT&T Titan only has English installed. Now I know that the articles were wrong but the backup made is one with English only. When I restore to a previous update via Zune it still has the same issues. Any ideas what I can do now?

I have the very same issue. I used 'Seven Eighter' tool to update to 7.8 and selected just English in the beginning from the list of language packs. After the update, several of my tiles have stopped working, including WiFi, About etc, clicking on them does nothing. However, now am checking the DisplaySettings and finding French, English, Italian, Dutch and Spanish languages on the phone, so I should have selected those in the beginning.
Reverting back using Zune doesn't helps either. How can I get around this problem?

Carrier is Orange UK and the device is branded. It was originally on Mango (7.5) and I used 'Seven Eighter' to update it all the way to 7.8.8858, however the missing language packs seem to have screwed things. I tried manually updating the language packs using WP7 Update Cab Sender, but it fails to update the language packs.

How can I get out of all this?

Here is what I found was the issue and resolution:
Issue: When using Seven Eighter to directly update the cabs, I started of impatiently and just selected English(US) for the language pack and went ahead with the update. Update was successful but lots of apps/tiles stopped to work. My Zune backup was screwed so nothing to revert back to. In short - phone was toast! I even tried sending the language packs for English(UK) and other installed languages on my phone separately, but all kept failing.
Resolution: Got a hint from a mention by HeathCliff74 on XDA dev forums. The gist is, just like the updater updates the phone's OS files, it needs to sync-update the language files too, else they mismatch and when the new OS tries to load new language files, it fails, causing the apps to misbehave. So, to fix it, I had to update ALL the versions of the the English(UK) - the default language - on my phone. I started right away from NODO update for English(UK), the update resulted in message that it is already installed. Then I moved to Mango version of English(UK) and that installed fine! So that was the missing link for me. Then Adding 8112 and 8558 updates for Tango and beyond for English(UK), they all installed fine. Please NOTE that I had to be patient, installing these updates one at a time. And the patience paid off, my phone is back up and running!!
PLEASE NOTE: I can *confirm* that one needs the language pack files of *just* their default language, *unless* they plan to change the Display language/keyboard settings on their phone to some other language. So, as in my case, I just need English(UK) and just updated those files and everything works fine for me now.

Hope that helps.

This list of cabs and the cabsender fixed my Titan II when seveneighter had almost screwed it up. I had pretty much given up, even after a restore back to Mango the wifi setting, messages and loads of other features didn't work.
I also have an unbranded HD7 would it be possible to provide a similar list of cabs to download to upgrade that to 7.8? I have tried seveneighter with that and now the lock+wallpaper wont open or about - there may be other things that don't work.
By the way - is there a fix for the marketplace when you choose related apps and it crashes out?

I have pretty much the same problem as Bearach did (but US english should be my default), but am still unable to solve it.
I think that maybe I don't know if certain updates within each group (mango group updates, tango group, 7.8 group) need to go together & with what language packs. For example, from tango to 7.8 are 3 updates, but 4 files + 2 of each language file... what files get run in the batch together?
I've tried a bunch of ways, and have tried just english, just the 5 default languages I SHOULD have picked when I first used 78er, and tried installing ALL the languages (which was probably a major screw up that I can't figure out how to rectify). I've tried soft & hard resets, and I've read pretty much every post I can find on the subject here & in xda with no luck.
My phone (focus) works, with the exception of all non OS included apps, which all immediately crash.
I could revert back to tango (the official update thru zune), but the app problem persisted. After I reverted, I could use 78er again, but it does not let me tick off any language boxes.
is there a way to remove installed language packs?
Can I load a Rom (either the original official for focus 1.4, or to one that has 7.8 already on it?), & if so, how do I do that?
I'm plain out of ideas, and too broke to buy a new phone (I can offer a new replacement battery for a Focus S though, since I got the wrong one with my order!)
