My device buzzed and I got the ‘do not unplug’ logo while the animated graphic (above) continued for around 10 minutes, at which time my phone rebooted and reported a sucesfull update. Checking the version under settings->about on the phone showed that I was now on version 7.10.8779.8

I repeated the above process, SevenEighter then proceeded to download, then transfer the updates.

When done my phone showed the ‘do not disconnect’ logo and the process continued as previously.  After 5 minutes the phone rebooted.  This time it reported the version as being  7.10.8783.12

I repeated the cycle again and this time got  7.8!
