Nokia Lumia 525 begins limited Cyan update rollout focused in Asia Pacific region

The Lumia 525 is an odd device, as it is just a Lumia 520 but with a boost in RAM to 1 GB, instead of the normal 512 MB. Even though that may be preferable for some users, it is fascinating to see how widely unavailable this phone is worldwide. For instance, the Lumia 525 is found nowhere in Latin America or North America, and even in Europe, it is mostly isolated to Russia and Ukraine.

Still, countries in the Asia Pacific region do have the Lumia 525 on the shelves, and those users should be pleased to know that Lumia Cyan is being pushed out to those devices. Like previous rollouts, this one is only starting on a limited basis, with a wider rollout usually occurring one week later. So far, these countries are getting Lumia Cyan on the Lumia 525.

Remember, if you are using Windows Phone 8.1 already through the Preview for Developers, even if your country is listed below, you still do not get Lumia Cyan just yet (or a notification) as Microsoft has a pause on the updates. Users are instructed to either wait until a fix comes out or use the Nokia Recovery Tool to downgrade the OS and then take the updates.

Nokia Lumia 525 begins limited Cyan update rollout focused in Asia Pacific region

157 Comments

One thing bad for me m having 720 nd haven't updated with cyan cause m having the wp8.1 dp and the update is stopped for it :/ nd no fix in tow

I downgraded via recovery tool from my PC. And then upgraded to wp8.1. But I still face some bugs what I used to face in dev preview version.

Reasons.
1. You would have not hard reset it after 1st boot of windows phone8.1, If yes then good.
2. The SD card support for any Lumia device work flowlessly with class 16. If you have this also; ok.
It is not that I is required but, m seriously facing some issues cause I have class 10 SD Card and loaded lots aof apps which takes time to refresh and certain letancey as well, its ok cause it found to be minor.
If there any other issues then it would be because of hardware capablities and as per your usage. But 2 reasons mentioned above are found to be an best to eradicate major drawbacks after official version roll out.
M using 720 IND.

520,720 owner who use DP 8.1; I guess it is better for you guys just wait for the fix and don't waste time by rolling back to WP8 since Cyan only bring limited update to lower end Lumia.

You are right Asia pacific without India ... How dare they ... India is one of the biggest wp market ... And how they miss it out ... Damm I'm waiting like thirsty crow .. Man ...

There is a reason they leaving India out. You guys have huge market for WP and they want to find any possible issues before releasing to such a big market which is why they release to smaller markets first. So be glad; they are doing it for your benefit!

India is the biggest market, that's why they didn't release it in india first, so you dont get buggy update. It will be available just a week after. Have patience.

820 getting worst treatment... Neither mid end.. Low end or high end... Like the device didn't exist... Waiting for 830 upgrade... But hesitant.. Coz they almost left it out everytime ..

Yes its ridicules to know in wat way 620 is better or worth being treated ahead compared to 820 ..820 is almost equal to 920 expect camera n better than it means of memory ..820 is a hidden gem as mid range

My point exactly.. It's once of the best phone they made at a budget price point and now that are ignoring it like it doesn't exist

I like the upgraded 1GB of RAM but I'm not sure I'm a fan of that shiney glossy plastic back cover though. I prefer the matted polycarbonate. I wonder if we could still use the L520's covers on the L525.

so it means im stack from windows phone 8 since it wasn't officially released in the Philippines but bought it from other country?

Can't believe that Lumia 820, which was the first to receive Lumia black update(in India), still hasn't received Cyan!
What is up with Microsoft !!

Microsoft thinks that indian market is heap and that can everything they want. I had Lumia 820 but due to neglect this device i switch to android ant fully satisfied. Microsoft is pethatic they have no warm feeling with their cosumer they only focus on their bussiness.

The 525 has it's largest share in India, still we're not receiving it. That's bad Microsoft, fix the bug for direct update to CYAN why to downgrade.. :/

Come on HTC give a comment on when you gonna release 8.1 for you phones it's not gonna kill you
I should've gone for lumia you killed my trust twice htc once for desire z once for 8s

Yes cyan update is available in India for lumia 520.

Wtf microsoft lumia 525 users are more in india y dont u give update 1st fo us wat d hell z going on plzzz give update through ota

Hello,525 is not at all an unpopular phone in India, it is the 2nd most windows phone sold in India, which is after 520.. So, it should get the update quickly

I had WP 8.1 DP and used Nokia recovery tool to flash the phone with Cyan firmware. If Cyan is available for your phone it will work and it's easier this way.

Cyan also seems to be better optimized than 8.1 DP, the phone runs better.
Another note flashing your phone means you only loose your apps not your music and photos IF they are on your SD card, if they are stored on the phone memory they will be deleted.

Not yet. Cyan is available in Bangladesh for all Lumia devices except for L525, L620 and L720. It's stil under testing for those three devices.

When is Microsoft going to fix the Bitlocker issue? Fragmentation. It wasn't supposed to happen with WP.

Bitlocker is not a problem, when Cyan will be available for your 920 you can simply use Nokia Recovery Tool to flash the firmware and case closed it will install Cyan directly.

How about Lumia users who's still in developer preview? I'm running developer preview on Lumia 520. Will I ever get the official Windows Phone 8.1 O.S.? Thanks.

Lumia 525 can be upgraded to 8.1 via Nokia Software Recovery Tool. Just Download the software on ur pc and connect ur phone. It'll do the rest. Size of Cyan Update is 1.54 GB. Make sure u have enough space left for phone memory at least 1 GB would do. Take back up and go ahead. I did it last night successfully.

I have it on my Hong Kong CV too. I was about to flash Indian ROM but great that I wmhad waited. On a closer look, I did see that the firmware numbers were same between the HK Cv and India Cv

I'AM USING NOKIA RECOVERY TOOL TO DOWNGRADE MY SOFTWARE....BUT IT IS GOING UPDATE AGAIN...WHAT TO DO GUYS...........PLZZZZZZZZZZZZZ TELL ME FAST

 

IS IT THE OFFICIAL VERSION FROM MICROSOFT??? ACTUALLY NOKIA RECOVERY TOOL IS TO DOWNGRADE THE OS.IS IT CORRECT???

 

No ,,It Is For Recovery of software version which is currently available for your device,,,,,i also want to recover,,but it downloaded Lumia Cyan,,, but if you are on preview for dev os,,,then it downgrade

Well i already updated my Lumia 525 to Windows Phone Cyan in India with NSRT but there is a catch to it you dont get cortana yet i guess will get that in the final release .

I have the Hong Kong variant, running WP8.1.1 devpreview, so I'll choose to wait for the fix. Running nicely, except for the start screen jumping vertically a bit, causing me to two the wrong tile. Noticed this after update 1 with folders.

Hi,
today i connectd my Lumia 525 to my Laptop and ran the nokia software recovery tool.
It notified me to update to a new version and after I followed the instructions, voila I now have WP8.1 cyan on my Lumia 525.
With notification bar and everything. still waiting for Cortana, but nice to have the notification bar and seperate volume controls..

thanks

motherfucker saare mobile Ki update de di bus Lumia 820 ke baare mein koi kuch nahi kahna chah raha hai jaise hum logo ka mobile Lumia series ka nahi hai.20k bugs spent karne ke baad bhi dala dibba he hai. Pata nahi kab uski update aegi. Abhi tak to ye bhi nahi pata Ki update India mein aegi bhi ke nahi.

Hello All,

I just received Windows 8.1 update on my Lumia 525. Earlier i was on Windows 8 Official Version.

I confirm 8.1 Update rollout for Nokia Lumia 525 India CV.

But update it seems is taking more than hour to download the updates. (Progress bar is moving and itz slow).

I have updated Lumia 525 to cyan update in India, but i am facing heating problems just above the camera, and excessive battery drain, anyone facing this problem.
