No, that's impossible...  The code just doesn't do it this way.  Once
the "Installing OS2008 Feature Upgrade" progress bar is shown, the
network should no longer be needed.

In what state did you find the N800?  Was the Application manager still
open, or did you see the home screen?

I assume the AM was still open, since otherwise there should have been a
note saying "Update successfully installed".

If the AM stops the update without rebooting and without giving any
error message, then that's a bug int the AM.

Hmm, a dependency error is not something that you can override.  Any
chance that you remember more details about this?
