Lumia 920

Following an earlier report that the random reboot hotfix for Windows Phone is rolling out to a number of Lumia devices in the US, we have received a flood of tips from Windows Central readers that the same hotfix is available for download in other parts of the world today.

So far, we have gotten tips the update is available in India for the Lumia 520, along with the Lumia 525 and the Lumia 620. In the UK, the update is being pushed out onto the Lumia 520, the Lumia 920 and the Lumia 1520. The Lumia 1320 has the update in Lumia 1320 and in Sweden its available for the Lumia 930. This would appear to be a worldwide push for this hotfix so you might want to check your device to see if you have it ready to download.

Just a reminder: This update is not Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2, but a patch to fix periodic reboot issues. Microsoft previously wrote up a short post about this update their support forums:

"We identified a problem in some versions of Windows Phone 8.1 that could cause a phone to restart periodically. A critical update will fix this problem. If you're unable to install the update or want to learn more, we can help you fix your phone."

If you have received this update, let us know in the comments.

Thanks again to everyone, way too many to list individually, for the tips!
