How to Force Upgrade to 7.8 on your Windows Phone right now!
Good news to all first gen owners of Windows Phone out there. I was able to update to 7.8 without any trouble using a tool from WindowsPhoneHacker. This will work with any device as far as I've read through the comments in the article.

Some helpful info based on my experience
- The update worked on my HTC Mozart and I was using Windows 8
- Try to run the program at least 3 times with a successful update. I think the reason for this is because for every try, it updates the phone incrementally until it reaches the final 7.8 update.
- Upgrade at your own risk.
- Have patience
