Windows 7.8 has been a pretty big deal since it was first shared on the site. In just a couple short weeks, there have been successful ports to the HTC Titan, the venerable HTC HD2, and the HTC HD7. Developers and users alike have been able to play with the newest version of Windows for their devices. Of course, leaks and ports do have their issues, and Windows Phone 7.8 is no different.

To help out, the thread links users to the font pack, and installation involves overwriting the old files. It’s a silly bug, but at least there’s a simple solution. For more details, check out the original thread.
