Overnight, WP 7.8 (xxx.xxx.8858.12560) popped up on Navifirm, being available for the Lumia 800 (RM-801) and Lumia 510 (RM-889).

Me being me, and recently undergoing a flash of my Nokia Lumia 820, decided to take the plunge and flash my Lumia 800, even though I have a RM-819 variant, which has been gathering dust this past week. Here is what I have seen included:

  • Resizable Live tiles
  • Bluetooth Share
  • New Store Icon
  • Ringtone Maker, App Highlights, Contact Transfer etc.
  • Lock screen wallpaper option for Bing
  • More Accent colours
  • 24 Lockscreen Backgrounds (doesn’t appear in the gallery)
  • Animations are a little tweaked
  • Nokia Tune Remix ringtone :P
  • Xbox and Office icons
  • New boot screen
  • You can select Google as search engine in IE

Other than what I highlighted above, nothing else has really stood out as new. Have you flashed your device and noticed anything I haven’t? Let me know in the comments section below.

    hi, do you have any tutorial on how to flash lumia 800 rm 801/ dload version? thanks

  4. MOOking says:

    yawn!!!!

  5. Lumia800 says:

    Hi, Yesterday when i saw this on wmpoweruser site I flashed my Lumia immediately. I’m from India and I flashed my Indian version. I played with it for hours and found only the features you listed above, nothing new here. Hoped for more. But, the Office Icon changed, Start Screen animation has changed little. I noticed something else too. In 7.5, when I tap music or pictures tile it plays the animation loads and simultaneously, but here it’s loading and opening, so its taking a bit time to open. But this version is good. Because in 7.5 when I opened pictures and music hub, sometimes for 1 or 2 seconds the screen goes blank and plays the animation.

    • Amrut Mhatre says:

      dude,do you have any problem in connecting to the zune ?
      some people suggesting that they are not able to sync to zune, phone is not recognized it seems.
      will appreciate if you tell the pros and cons after updating thru flashing….

      • Lumia800 says:

        No! I have no problem and I synced all my files as usual! :-)

      • Lumia800 says:

        Zune detects my Lumia 800 without a problem! I used Nokia Care suite 5.0 and recovered it with 7.8 firmware. The Phone is really fine and works just the way it should. I synced all my music and videos to Lumia, worked Great! :-)

        • uday gupta says:

          HI Lumia800:

          My lumia 800 is not detected by Nokia Care Suite. How does yours get detected? I did everything as specified with the dialog box to connect but nothing happened. Instead it says Unknown product

      • Ronit says:

        The drivers installed by Nokia Care Suite do mess up the drivers used by Zune. I generally create a restore point before installing Care Suite and after I am done, go back to the restore point I created.

    • Viipottaja says:

      So no picture multi-select in the Photos hub? That is disappointing. Oh well, I have the glorious 920 anyway so not personally a big deal anymore. :)

  6. Ronit says:

    Well, i flashed my Lumia 900 and couldn’t find anything other than what is written above.

    The new Start screen and the Live wallpapers are the only OS level features. Everything else is just apps.

    Also, no sign of Nokia camera lenses.

    I am quite disappointed, especially if this is the last updated (to add features) to the 7.x line.

    I really hoped for Native Screenshot ability, I don’t think it would have been that hard to implement.

  7. Matt says:

    Wifi to stay connected under lock screen.

    Separate volume controls for ringer and music.

    Clock display when locked for amoled screens (ha!)

    Screen capture.

    Improved camera.

    Improved battery life.

    Torch.

    Dark background for email.

    Dark background for x-box screens.

    blah blah blah

    Looks like my Lulu (Lumia 800) will be staying in the drawer :(

    Purdy (808) lives to fight another day :)

    • lacy says:

      Instal croatian ROM dont have ringtone maker no separat vulume controls!?
      Have any rom for L800 with this?
      Matt what version yuo install?

  8. dexter says:

    How can you confirm BT file transfer and ringtone maker?
    its not even there…i want a screenshot if so!

  9. patata says:

    So not even the promised rooms feature? They did not promise much at all, and don’t even keep the few promises made? That’s disappointing :(
    On the other hand… What to expect for a legacy OS that is meant for budget phones?

  10. Ridho says:

    How the about screen capture feature ?

  11. Frankie says:

    Mine doesnt have the ringtone maker app. I was using the EE – Black – UK/GB variant.

    Will try installing another one.

  12. CodeGEN says:

    Guys what about languages , is the turkish language been added. ?

  13. Jolla Blog says:

    Looking forward to trying this out but not sure whether to wait till the official release. Has any had their phone bricked doing this?

    • Ronit says:

      I used recovery mode and it died the first time around the halfway mark. I just switched off the phone, connected it again and started the process. This time it went directly into recovery mode and completed without issues.

  14. pezman726 says:

    Does it have the “Kid’s Corner” on it?

  15. Ibrahim says:

    flashed with the 059N7K7 variant, and I can confirm that there are neither BT sharing nor ringtone maker in this release.

    • Just Visiting says:

      Most likely, they will come in the form of an app in the Nokia Collection.

    • andrej says:

      hi ive got the same lumia in uk (Product Code 059N7K7) nokia lumia 800 white GB (UK) downloaded firmware using navifirm, and trying to upload it to my phone using nokia care suite, but the cube in nokia care suite doesnt come green (even when i changed file location manualy) so i cant update my lumia to wp 7.8 :( could some one help me???

  16. Ruben says:

    no usb mass storage yet?

    • Patata says:

      Of course not. There won’t be such deep changes for wp7.x anymore ;)

    • Harangue says:

      That won’t happen, not primarily due to HW constraints but more to do with the way such an upgrade would happen. If USB mass storage where to be added there would need to be some changes made to the entire file system.

      If they were to update that via a FW update there is a chance of lost files or even bricking an entire phone. Same kind of risk you run with flashing your device. Most of us here would probably happily take the risk and even if it goes wrong wouldn’t mind. The average consumer on the other hand would. His/her device that cost a pretty penny became useless, that is the scenario MS (and Nokia perhaps) are trying to avoid with a lot of the limited new features coming.

  17. Ronit says:

    They didn’t make a single change to IE9, except adding Google as a search provider. The HTML5 score is still pathetic. We didn;t want IE10, but a good update to the existing browser would have been helpful.

    Now my friends laugh at me that my phone cannot do screenshots, whereas even an iPhone can. Too bad wpchevron is no longer in service :-(

  18. Patata says:

    Just wonder if there will be a way to get bt sharing, ringtone maker etc via marketplace, cause since it is possible to uninstall those extras their should be a way to reinstall them without reflashing.
    Not only that there is no lenses feature, Nokia did not even include camera extras into the update nor updated that app. So there are no camera changes at all.

  19. Greetings folks ! I have recently worked on an article , I may even call it a research about quite the same topic . There is not much clear information on that, but I was lucky to get a little bit on telephone blockers there .

  20. Gurra says:

    @Michael
    Does the bluetooth share works good and can you send videos also to your N9?
    Another question thats OT, how does the mass storage WP8 work?
    Is it true mass storage or mtpz?
    Does the mass storage work in Linux?

  21. candrou says:

    hello,

    Somebody help me my phone doesnt starts i think its bricked i tried several times even by recovery nothing works! please help

  22. Patata says:

    Mo ringtone maker here ( updated to the correct firmware for my Lumia 800 )
