Denim update now available for Lumia Icon through Software Recovery Tool

It's finally here! If you don't mind erasing all your content, the Lumia Denim update is now available for the Lumia Icon on Verizon. The catch is that it's currently only available through the Lumia Software Recovery Tool. The update should also be available Over The Air (OTA) very soon if you don't want to erase all your content. We've just installed the update on our Lumia Icon and we're really happy that is has finally arrived.

The main reason we are excited about the Lumia Denim update is the new features included with Lumia Camera 5.0. Check out what's new:

  • Fast camera startup and capture speeds. Take numerous photos with just milliseconds between shots.
  • Moment Capture, a long press of the camera button within the app automatically starts 4K-quality video recording at 24 frames per second. Each frame is of high image quality at 8.3 megapixels, allowing every single video frame to be selected and saved as a still image.
  • Rich Capture simplifies things with auto HDR and Dynamic Flash. Avoid the hassle of adjusting camera settings shooting first and edit and select the perfect shot later.
  • Updated imaging algorithms for better low-light performance.

All you need to do is fire up the Software Recovery Tool, connect the Lumia Icon to your computer via a USB cable, and then follow the instructions onscreen.

  • Download Lumia Software Recovery Tool{.nofollow}

If you have the Lumia Icon, are you waiting for the OTA update or are you going ahead with the Software Recovery Tool? Let us know in the comments!

Thanks for the tip, AR2186!

  • Doing a fresh install of an update is an excellent idea anyway...I'd jump on this in a heartbeat!
  • It will be ok just to uninstall de DP to get the OTA?
    Or I have to do it with Nokia Recovery Tool???
  • You can't uninstall DP :/ but you can turn it off and then you could get the OTA update (which is still not out yet) , if this doesn't work you'll have to flash it using the recovery tool and it'll erase everything
  • You can uninstall DP, Also you Can Turn it off.
  • No you can not uninstall it. You can do exactly what the post you replied to says, you can flash your phone using the recovery tool, or turn off PfD in the app. Why would you even write that response?
  • From your start screen swipe right go to Preview for developer press & hold & it will say share pin it uninstall.....
  • Yes you can uninstall the DP app, but that doesn't change the fact that you are running a pre-release OS version on your phone.  So uninstalling DP will not change your OS version.  IT will only prevent you from getting future pre-release updates.
  • OKay I get what you're saying.
  • Will the ODA remove all my content? Or just the software recovery tool?
  • with software recovery tool you'll lose all your content
  • Not if you back up what you want to SD Card, remove SDCard, then reset / recover what ever.
  • The Icon has NO SD slot.
  • Go to "settings" and "backup" and back up your apps+settings; text messages and photo+videos (recommend using WiFi to save data). Then, to ensure you have everything backed up, connect your phone to your computer and copy your files from the phone to your computer. Once you have everything backed up to your computer and to the cloud, you should have no worries about using the software recovery tool. I'm at work right now, but as soon as I get home, I'm hitting my PC and getting denim on my phone before someone changes their mind!  
  • Yup, that's how you do it. The Recover Tool even reminds you to do that before you install the update if you want to recover your apps and data. That's the way I did it and it was pretty painless. up and running with all apps recovered in less than an hour!
  • Forgot about that one lol
  • OTA won't delete your data.
  • Just make sure you use the backup tool in your Icon and it will restore when you are done.
  • What app is this? Do you mean the built in one that's in the settings menu?
  • Ye, the Backup in settings. You will have to reload your passwords and log back into things like Facebook, Instagrm etc, but the apps themselves will be automattically reloaded once you do a recover from the Backup. If you saved your Contacts to VZW backup, thaose will be reloaded automatically as well.
  • Thats what I did and it worked!
  • I could be wrong, but if I recall, if an over the air update occurs it will install the firmware portion of it and leave the OS portion intact.
  • It will update the OS, too.
  • Can anyone check and see if the mmsc field editing option is available on denim? I've had this phone on ATT before but the lack of mms was killin me.
  • Doesnt appear to, and without a funcitoning app like Access Point it doesnt look promising
  • We can actually use SysApp Pusher to get Access Point on the Icon. Unfortunately, there seems to be no functioning configuration that makes MMS work when using a Lumia Icon on AT&T. I've heard of people getting it to work on Straight Talk (as well as LTE), but not full-blown AT&T.
  • That download speed though
  • 5MB/s, nothing special :D My download speed usually caps out at about 5,5MB/s :D
  • Nostalgia!! For Indians!! Because of our fukin careers!!
  • I second you
  • I usually got something like 19~20MB/s :D
  • I need a better router, I supposedly have 250Mbps internet, but on speedtest it caps out at about 50/50 (down/up)
  • Haha I'm on a 500mbps/50mbps connection now, just got the speed increased from 250mbps/10mbps yesterday xD
  • And mine is 6/1. Damn it...
  • Same here. It sucks.
  • At least you have 6/1.... I am on 2/1 *sigh*
  • Mine is 65KB/s lol B)
  • That's your data speed? or what you're downloading it right now?
  • Agree, I don't know why the LSRT is always so slow.
  • My speed is 0/0, I can't afford internet, I have the business one but limited to 2gb...
  • Mine is 200-300 kB/s xD (in Hungary this is normal speed)
  • Feels Denim.er
  • I am using the Nokia Software Recovery Tool!
  • I would be doing it right now if I was in the office. I'm at a clients office and I thought i don't need a computer today my surface RT will be fine.
  • Such fast internet awesome
  • That's only 5 MB/s.
  • Yeah not Sure what people are on about with his download speed. Not exactly rapid, is it?
  • It's not bad, but certainly nothing to be excited over. It's like decent DSL speed.
  • In India we rarely get 1mbps not 1MBps
  • Kidding? I have a 50 Mbps connection here in Hyderabad
  • Fuck!! What!!!! 50mbps!! Which IPS??? Bsnl is fucked up!! Which 1!
  • No, that's 5 MB/s. The capital B means it is bytes not bits. 5 MB/s = 40 Mb/s
  • My bad.
    Autocorrect got me.
  • I get 100 meg at my house... Or 10MB/s down.
  • Congratulations for lumia icon owners and i suggest you do it now before Verizon changes their minds
  • True, that.
  • I have to do it because I'm on the DP, but I need to do it anyways, my Icon was getting pretty leggy. Totally excited to get Denim.
  • You shouldn't need to do it because you're on the DP.  If you disable the app on your phone, you should be able to update just fine when it's available.
  • You won't be dissapointed having Denim is like having a new phone camera.  I have 930 and I really felt the difference.
  • MS now says the update is official  and rolling out so no need to go through this.  Just hit "check for updates" though out the day.
  • It's also rolling out officially, so if you don't want to hard reset, wait a couple days.
  • People wont listen until they lose their data.
  • Where's my denim for L1520 ?!! Btw congratulations icon owners , you deserve it :')
  • Yeah for att It's still in testing....
  • What Is AT&T testing.....their desire to make 1520 owners,have to wait till a 1530,in order to get Denim.....lol
  • That's what the rep told me. I'm actually getting sick to my stomach.
  • Yeah, I can't believe the Verizon Icon beat us to it...
  • Yeah,when is denim coming to Lumia 1520 in Sweden?
  • At least you guys had Cyan. The Lumia Icon here in the US was officially still on Black/8.0. So quit yer whining. :p
  • Still waiting for my L1520 also.
  • So sad, we were the talk of the town for cyan...I suppose one can't win them all.
  • Yaaay
  • the frustration of U.S people is now down ......... I have seen many people telling Verizon is sleeping with ICON ..... Now I can experience their hunger towards Denim
  • Until its OTA and I physically see the bytes coming over... I won't believe it LOL.
  • OTA for me...
  • If I'm on the DP, shouldn't I use the Recovery Tool anyway?
  • Looks like most people say you can just get the OTA update without rolling back.. I'm tempted to do the recovery tool to get it now! :)
  • My god..... That internet speed....
  • You're being sarcastic, right?
  • Most people does not have a 40mbps-connection.
  • That, while some have a 1Gbps connection. Is it fair?
  • I certainly hope so because this is mine: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/7807278/Fibra%20Optica.png
  • Double tap to wake?????
  • Lumia Icon doesn't support glance screen.
  • Neither does the 930.
  • Glance has nothing to do with double tap to wake. Tap was always available on icon/930
  • Tap to wake has -never- been on the Icon.
  • you are right . updated to denim with srt. but I don't see the double tap feature ! sad :(
  • Double tap to wake should work I suppose? It works on 930.
  • I don't see now (denim installed) and have never seen that feature in my icon....sad :(
  • The camera features sound great. Can't wait until this comes to the 920 on AT&T, whenever that is.
  • Camera improvements/features won't be available to 920.
  • Wow, didn't realize that. I'll stop waiting...
  • Lol
  • Not as 930/Icon or 1520, but there are some improvements for old lumias.
  • BEFORE LUMIA 1520 HAHA
  • Odd, because the 1520 is the best WP device to date...
  • Nope. 6inches vs 5inches.
  • You can't factor in screen size because that's subjective.. Lol!.. Try again....
    ........
    The FACT is that the 1520 has the most to offer than any other WP device that you can find.. That is technical fact... Screen size, color, shape,, those are all personal preferences, and anyone who knows how to compare specifications counts only measurable performance, and features, when finding the overall best device..
  • About half the population prefer a larger device...if you catch my drift, therefore, larger is better.
  • That's not fair to say.... You can't compare technical specs, and say something is better, because more people like it... That's still subjective, and we should dismiss screen size because that's our personal preference....
    .............
    But, you are right... Judging by charts just as many people have chosen the 1520, as the Icon/930
  • If about half prefer a larger device, then math says that about half don't.
    You lose, but thanks for playing.
  • So, how does anyone win, or loose?.. That's besides the point.... And, it doesn't matter because technically the 1520 is overall the best WP device you can get as of 2/11/15... That is undisputable fact.
  • Wrong.
  • The 1520 is the best! Hands down!
  • Lol! Even if we did say factor in the 6" screen size as a negative for some, that would only be one strike against it, and the 1520 still would have more things that make it outweigh the Icon/930.......
    ..........
    It's about the OVERALL BEST DEVICE AVAILABLE you can get with WP.... Not the device you prefer with WP.....
  • Except it's worthless if Verizon is your carrier LOL... Icon is your only choice for a flagship...
  • Good point.. Lol❗
  • I have a 930 and though I like the looks of it more than the 1520, I have to admit, that the 1520 is more powerful and is batter than the 930 in more ways than one.
  • I fully agree with you. Nothing comes close.
  • Even if I was a fan of tiny 5" screens,,, I would still have to admit that the 1520 has the most to offer in a WP device,, therefore it is the best.. It sits at the very top..
  • The 1520 is a large 930 with a worse screen (for WP Amoled is better) but bigger battery. Either is "better" since the only thing different is size and screen-tech.
  • Hey, I have the 930 and I love it. But the 1520 has a larger battery and an SD card slot. The larger screen could be a + or  - for people, so that shouldn't be factored in. But just the fact that it has a larger battery and an SD card slot for me is a major +. Now, the price difference for me was around 300 USD xD So I got the 930 and I'm SO Happy with it! Very pocketable and I'm glad I got it :) Very good phone. 
  • And, I absolutely love the 930! I would say that it looks better, and has a more premium feel than the 1520.... Nokia could've put a little more style on the 1520...
    ..........
    The 1520 definitely isn't perfect by any means...
  • Good point... But, screen size is definitely not a fact of being better, or worse.
  • what a massive download speed ,, and what about lumia 1520 in india ..
  • Zzzzzzzz. Still stuck in 520/ 535. Waiting for the same phone here. One of my contacts told me they have stopped it due to some phones still getting that" resuming" loading" after denim.
  • Attttt 1520??
  • +1520 waiting right there with ya
  • Bout ready to black the fuck out from waiting.
  • Yeah... I really wanted this new firmware before trying W10....
  • Me too. It's the devil in the details...10 may be optimized for denim.
  • 10 has NOTHING to do with what firmware you are currently running.
  • Not true, firmware matters. Look it up.
  • Well, I know that.. And, that's pretty obvious.. But, running 10 without the latest firmware is just suck.
  • Rod, I was talking to gildora. I know we agree over this topic.
  • Oh.. Sorry.
  • It's ok, these comments get all wrapped up into each other.
  • Ballsak❓❓ .... Lol. Just noticed that.
  • Like a sak of balls, gym balls...
  • This has to stop... Lol.
  • Goodnight, Arlington.
  • No, it is not, stop spreading assumptions as facts.
  • Ronald, read. Then read again. I said may." May, does not indicate a fact. That being said, firmware does matter in relation to the os. Sure, they are separate updates, however they are inextricably intertwined. To say otherwise is to say a car does not need an engine because it has a transmission. Both provide the ability for a car to move forward, yet one without the other is futile. Comprehend?
  • Are you on the right article?
  • What do you mean, Rod. Me? Babbling about c a car, no, using one as an example to explain that firmware and the OS go hand in hand. The car, with an engine and transmission are both necessary to work, but are separate in and of themselves.
  • No, that ronaldme person.
  • Hah, we both messed up. These comments and email. At least we have responded without assumptions and started nailing one another.
  • Good! I don't feel as bad now.
  • * Huge sigh of relief* Alright, big V, I admit it, you guys actually did something nice for us for once. It will be remembered.
  • Don't get it twisted... They still gave us the shaft...
  • For real.
    I wouldn't call it 'nice' to discontinue all Nokias, skip updates and hold out updates for months... all while giving zero communication.
    No, I would consider it more of a 'here, shut up' and 'Microsoft put a lot of pressure on us'.
  • You mean they did something they were contractually obligated to do.
  • Well am still waiting for 1020 in India!
    But no, first windows 10, then the denim! :)
  • I'll wait...
  • I have apps downloaded that are no longer in the store, plus I haven't backed up all of my music yet, so I'm waiting for OTA update.
  • Where the eff is my denim update for AT&Ts 830!?
  • Isn't this recovery tool offered by Microsoft? Is it the same that windows central posted that Microsoft confirmed could be used to recover your phone if you choose to install Windows 10 on your device? If so, this would be a no thanks to cellular carriers right???
  • Finally!!!!!
  • Come on Verizon, release the OTA version NOW !!! I want to try that first, if all fails, I will nuke my phone.... Even backed up all my pictures/videos to a USB drive, just in case...
  • Would love to do reset but just did one last month after chive download and lost alot of progress on games and apps that backup didn't work with
  • Im in the same boat
  • Good Question, those of us on the DP, do we need to turn it off or anything to get the update?? Or is it recommend we use the recovery tool? All that said, I wonder how it will effect the Windows 10 preview that's coming. My Icon has been flawless on the Deb. Preview.
  • For a minute I thought it was available for L630
  • Congrats Verizon customers. Well lets hope ATT follows suit.
  • Can I do this on my unlocked 930 (from Brazil)?
  • It depends from where it is your phone.  I bought mine from Amazon and it was from Hong Kong, the Denim for Hong Kong was availabe since some weeks ago. I'm running Denim on my 930. Check where is your phone in Settings->extras+info, mobile operator. Mine is 000-HK.
  • Awesome news for the Lumia icon users!
  • Actually you don't need to turn off the developer preview I got denim on my Lumia 928
  • ATT you suck! Way to go Verizon.
  • Those AT&T idiots keep saying soon.
  • Omg hell has frozen over!! Verizon released all Denim updates and 8.1.1 updates to all the Windows Phones they sell. I can't believe Verizon came through. 928 here and my phone runs so good. Can't EVEN DEAL ! ^_^
  • Waiting..
  • AT&T is in the house:)....oh wait.
  • Fresh install and that camera!  So glad it's finally here.  Just waiting for the rest of my apps to finish downloading from backup before I begin my day.  Hey Cortana listens surprisingly well, even in lock.  Curious what that's gonna do to my already short battery life.
  • Hopefully the battery will improve, regardless of hey, bitc*...
  • Do I need to enable "Hey Cortana" somewhere? I don't see it anywhere and it does nothing when I say it. TIA
  • NVM - Found it in Main settings. Now need to leave work so I can set it up :)
  • Holy crap!!!! It's it real??? I never thought this day would come!
  • Look like 1020 will be the last Lumia to received denim update.
  • GREAT, now i'm going to be hitting "check for update" like every 5min!! DAMN!!! THE SUSPENSE!!! My ICON has been such a thorn in my side...
  • Let the crying commence for the people who hasn't received denim. I'm on At&t with a 1020, 520, and 1520 and I'm sitting here using my 1520 without a care in the world for when the update comes. When it comes, it comes. As long as it is before Q1 I'm good.
  • I'm afraid we are balls deep into quarter one, my friend.
  • Cool story, bro. We'll have Windows 10 on our 1520 before Denim, which is pretty sad.
  • If you have a 1020 on Preview for Developers, you pretty much already have "Denim" - no firmware fixes for that model that I know of.
  • Congrats to Verizon Lumia Icon users. Now if AT&T can hurry up and realse Denim for its Lumias. Last I heard (Feb. 9th), it was coming soon on Twitter.
  • They just said today that it is coming soon as usual.. They are idiots..lol
  • Any one on India can get denim updates on Lumia 930
  • Nope, only Lumia 520 and 525....
  • I suggest every new firmware or software update should also be available via recovery tools for every phone as an option alongside OTA. Am I asking for too much?
  • That is standard practice already.
  • Looks like the Lumia Icon owners got an early Valentine's Surprise from Microsoft :)
  • ASIA! WHAT HAPPENED!? MS SKIPPED MOST OF ASIA! Lumia 920
  • Does 8.1.1 come with denim using recovery tool? Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for Android
  • Yep :-)
  • What about hey Cortana?
  • What do you want to know? Hey Cortana is a feature of Denim (WP8.1.1) for 930/Icon/1520.
  • I mean is it there in the release? Have they included?
  • I would completely do this if it were available for my 1520.3.   I really think (wish) CV phones should be among the first to receive updates.
  • Congratulation for icon user... But, windows 10 for phone update did not ask your phone for denim..
  • 1520?
  • If i could get my apps to backup... Just sits at 11%  
  • It will pass. It takes a few to get passed 11%. Especially if u have alot of stuff on the phone
  • Only for icon ???
  • 1520 ??? US unlocked att
    Really ridiculous I dont have denim nor windows 10 yet! Smdh
  • Is it me or are we getting both updates around same time? Lol. Denim and windows 10 insider
  • Now holding my breath for the 928
  • 928 got it a while back.
  • Are the new improved Verizon apps on it lol haha!!
  • When will I get denim on my L625(India) very very depressed.
  • Any idea when it's coming for l630, dying to see if it brings the option to hide nav bar
  • Sorry to be Mr. Kill joy but who cares about Denim at this point when Windows 10 is coming supposedly this week?
  • I want my phone to work properly, win10 has a few kinks that need worked out. I will get a cheap phone off eBay to play with it though.
  • Sorry but that dumb post. Denim is a firmware thing, it provides new functions to the phone. Even if you install Windows 10, you will not have that functions without the firmware.
  • It's only for Lumia Icon.. Or other devices like Lumia 1520, 1320,1020...?
  • Icon...Verizon doesn't sell those other phones.
  • This is how I'm planning to install Denim on my 1520.3 in the first place. WHEN IT ARRIVES (mad face)
  • Hallelujah! Software recovery tool it is tonight. I just did a full reset about a month ago to try and fix a few issues, so starting fresh isn't a big idea.
  • I just got a new surface pro 3 yesterday... its like the MSFT gods are smiling on me.
  • Just wait a few hours. You've waited this long. Why erase all your data? There will be nothing to do except enjoy the update when it comes instead of screwing with your phone all day.
  • Why not? Sometimes it is good to start over with a fresh installation.
  • Denim will overwrite the OS. It is a fresh install.
  • Forget the Icon. Where is it for my 1520? I'll have Windows 10 by the time Denim is officially released.
  • Ask AT&T
  • Why would I do that? I'm on the developer preview. AT&T had absolutely no bearing on my software updates. Microsoft simply hasn't made Denim available for the 1520 yet.
  • The Developer Preview is for OS updates, not firmware updates, which makes sense since only Lumia phones get those firmware updates anyway. Firmware has always arrived via carriers, not DP
  • In anticipation, I made sure to back everything up and rebooted my phone. Now the extras+info says I have denim, but the about still shows the black version number. Looks like the extra+info is jumping the gun here. Little tease.
  • Dose anyone ow if its possible to update firmware on a Lumia 810
  • I highly doubt it, tmo ditched that device awhile ago.
  • Did hell freeze over?
  • So I'm on the developer preview and still only have Lumia black for the icon. What do I do for this??
  • This is like a factory reset, but you need your computer to pull it off. Its not OTA. This replaces everything on your phone with a clean Denim install.
  • Just finished the update. Be sure to do a Backup before you install this update!  Apps and data is now updating following the Denim Install. Let's hope it's been worth the wait!
  • Oh ATT, where art Thou?
  • *head explodes*
  • Wow Verizon got the update before AT&T .... Now tell me AT&T, how do you feel about yourself! You should be ashamed of yourself! Look at yourself, don't look away! That's right, Verizon bested you! LOL
  • This is my fault sorry. If I was still on Verizon with the Icon, AT&T would have had it by now. I blame myself for Sprint not having any phones for over a year after the HTC Arrive was discontinued as well. Now that I have the 1520, it will be the last to get the update.
  • Is the DP the same version of the OS as the OTA will be?
  • I don't have Icon, but glad to here the news! Congrats guys! :)
  • Is there a Denim for Lumia 920 mea?
  • The only reason I don't do it now with the recovery tool is Royal Revolt 2. Don't want to lose my progression, so I'll wait for the OTA update.
  • Can anyone confirm if Icon with denim has "hey Cortana" feature? They was some speculation that it might not....
  • There are not speculations, it is confirmed that Lumia Icon is getting all Denim features. The Icon es practically the same phone than Lumia 930.
  • Understood, but there was a windowscentral article the other day about the carrier 02 pushing out Denim for 930 without "Hey Cortana" - but I see now that article has been updated and "Hey Cortana" was just being delayed.  Super syched, still waiting for the OTA update...
  • me too.. I'm wearing out that "Check for updates" button! haha.. 
  • Hold on I'll just ask Cortana.... Confirm 100% yes it does
  • I can't win. My main phone is always last to get updates. I had the Icon, now I have the 1520.3. grrr
  • Such a waste if Microsoft has not plan to do something with Lumia 1020.
  • Like what kind of plans? It will get Windows 10.
  • Battery improvement, once the camera switched on you will see the battery life not more than 3 hours.
  • WTF, how is Verizon beating us to the punch AT&T?!
  • That's great for the Icon owners!  How about AT&T releasing the update for the 920?  I don't believe the 920 gets any actual denim upgrades, but the OS upgrade would be nice.
  • There is still hope T-Mobile 925...
  • Didn't Verizon get Black before AT&T?
  • To late already switched to AT&T and iPhone gg verizion 
  • Sucks. Your phone is on par with my 830 :-)
  • Why are people so confused when it comes to firmware and OS updates? Developer Preview only gives you early access to Operating System Updates, not Firmware such as Denim. Only Lumia phones would get Denim anyway so why make it available through DP for everyone including HTC phones, etc? To get Cyan, Denim, and any other firmware, it has always arrived via CARRIER.
  • Congrats Icon owners, y'all have the patience of a high school teacher (even though comments say otherwise).
    Go ahead, do it before big red changes its mind
  • 5mbps
  • Verizon is going to troll us and start selling the Icon again. Hahaha
  • Did they add the "Hey Cortana" feature for the Icon?
  • These idiots from AT&T is still talking about soon, that's all the info they can give us. #Sucks! :)
  • I keep getting the following error when attampting to upgrade via the Software Recovery Tool: "Software Installation failed. Error Code 0x8013153B " Anyone else getting this error? Any insights as to why I'm getting this message and what to do about it?
  • Were you on Developer Preview Program?  If so, did you first disable it (in the app)?  That might help.
  • I had to uninstall and reinstall the Software Recovery Tool before it would work - try that?
  • do you have enough free space on your phone for the upgrade?
  • Thanks for all the suggestions...I disabled the DP program, reset my phone, re-installed Software Recover Tool, turned off my firewall, and used a different USB port to connect my phone. And I have plenty of storage on my phone, especially after re-setting it. I am STILL getting error messages.
  • 1020
  • Will this process work for Lumia 930 In India
  • To anyone who updated through the recovery tool: HOW IS IT?!?!
  • Seems faster
  • No posts on whether the update has been successful for anyone?, and how they like Denim so far???  I'm starting to think when the update process hits 100% people are just disappearing in a puff of smoke... lol - seriously HOW IS IT? BTW - i'm waiting for OTA availability but will certainly give my input when I can....
  • Updated via Software Recovery Tool - so far: BTLE works now and SensorCore enabled - micoach allows 'motion data' as a stride sensor now.  Camera is SO fast both to load and take burst pictures! Rich Capture is neat and takes a flash/non-flash picture so you can choose between them. Lumia Moments with 4k recording is a cool app also! WiFi performance seems improved, though remains to be seen if the dropouts have been fixed as they didn't happen very often with my phone.  Not sure if this was present with PfD but there are more display color adjustments available. No double-tap to wake though :(  Hey Cortana works nicely.  Phone seems faster to resume from sleep, haven't seen 'resuming' yet but will see...!
  • Thanks for the reply... sounds good!  I'm still waiting for OTA to show that the update available... nothing yet...NJ here.
  • Hip hop hooray, HO, HEY, HO
  • Don't forget that a lot of delisted apps will be gone forever if you upgrade through the software recovery tool. Which ones ? 6snap, mybux , Chase Mobile (who's service will be discontinued soon even if you have the app) , etc
  • When Lumia denim will available for Lumia 530 dual sim? Can anyone tell me?
  • Congratulations Lumia Icon owners on Verizon. All that bickering and patience has finally paid off. You can rest till Verizon kills off the official Windows 10 update. :)
  • Eagerly awaiting the update.  Maybe by the time I get home today it will be available.  
  • OTA is coming down mofo's arghhhhhhh so happy right now.
  • What about Lumia 820?
  • I connected my Lumia 930 to Software Recovery Tool and checked... but no denim update in india yet.
  • Bluetooth 4.0 (LE)?
  • Yes 100%
  • Just got denim through an OTA update!
  • do we need to download luma camera 5? my icon says it's not available. hey cortana is fun though.
  • Whooping download speed in the pic...
  • Downloading OTA right now in NY!!
  • Congrats Icon users! You guys deserve it! You guys have still been running Black!
  • I'm still confused on how to receive the Denim firmware if your running PFD. I hear to many opinions! I wish Microsoft would be more clear on this.
  • Anyone else having the download fail, right before it finishes?
    It downloaded 1.61GB of 1.62GB and I keep getting the Cancel/Try Again buttons.
    I think I've hit Try Again 25 times. Thankfully, OTA is installing.
    No need to use the Recovery Tool, after all.

  • When denim come to Lumia 630
  • I updated to denim on my icon and everything is great but Cortana still says beta on the top right. Is it supposed to still be in beta or is there something wrong with my phone?
  • So yea I got the 630. But I think I've choose the wrong model. I went for the best I could aford! At the time! Its awkward to hold one ba ded and limited on only one camera. Some times it has blue screen and then turns off. And now I see the new daul Sims phones now come out. Not fair. Any idears on how to make the best outa this 630?
