Update your Samsung SGH-i197 window phone from 7.10.7720 to 7.10.8101.79 without Zune forcefully

Below steps works for me on my Window Phone (Samsung SGH-i197) having OS 7.10.7720

Count Display Language in your phone, Go to Setting >> Language

Download files based on language in your phone.
Here are the individual languages that you need to download to the same directory as the OS install files from above English (US) language pack Chinese (traditional), Chinese (simplified), GermanCzechFrenchEnglish – UK, Spanish, Danish, Greek, Finnish, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish,Portuguese – (Brazil), Russian, Swedish, Portuguese – (Portugal)
If you need all 22 in one shot, just download this file. Do NOT install extra languages.
Download the ZIP file here and keep in in your local PC drive (i.e. C:\Phone)

Download and install the appropriate file based on your PC OS version
Follow below steps
1.    Make sure your phone is charged to at least 50%
2.    Plug your phone via USB into your computer and close Zune Desktop (yes, close it)
3.    On your computer, navigate to where you extracted the OS update: Cab Sender --> Tools --> x86/x64(Choose one based off your system architecture)
4.    Run UpdateWP.exe (Note: you should see a DOS screen flash and disappear)
5.    Back out to your main directory and run WP7 Update Cab Sender.bat
6.    Choose 'B' (This will back up your device to Zune, then install the updates)
