Yesterday Microsoft started an aggressive rollout of the 7.10.8860 update which we were disappointed to find out did not in fact fix the battery draining and data gobbling Live Tile bugs found in the first version of Windows Phone 7.8.

Now we have had several tips that Microsoft is rolling out a second new update, build 7.10.8862.144, which does in fact fix stuck tiles and other issues.

According to the Microsoft change log (above) this is the one and only true Windows Phone 7.8 update and besides the “many other improvements to Windows Phone” it also “Fixes performance issues from a previous update”.

We have had reports from Canada, Norway and India that the new update is rolling out, so it seems to be following hot on the heels of the last one.  It is still a mystery why both are being sent out but have the latest (greatest) version hit your phone yet? Let us know below.

Thanks Arjun, breakingillusions , Kunal, Geir and Chris for the tips.
