Lumia 1520 in Finland nabs Lumia Denim update

If you are Finland and own a Lumia 1520, you are one of the lucky few to get officially the new Lumia Denim OS and firmware update.

Heading to the Microsoft support page, Finland's Lumia 1520 'country variant' is marked as eligible for the Lumia Denim update (firmware 02540.00019.14484.37004). In checking other regions and countries, Finland appears to be the only one with a Lumia 1520 and Denim.

Besides the Lumia 1520, the Lumia 930 also began receiving Lumia Denim earlier today in Europe. The Lumia 520, Lumia 530, Lumia 625, Lumia 1320 and other Lumias also became eligible across Europe, the Middle East and Asia territories.

  • Lumia 1520 supports 4k video recording after denim??
  • Yes
  • Thanks :)
  • I would have preferred if it supported slow motion instead
  • It probably will, eventually.
  • Exactly what I want it to support!!!
  • on my 1520 maximum is 2160p/30fps
  • 2160p is actually 4K... you see 1080p or fullHD as it's also known, is 1920x1080p, 1920 is close to 2000, so this is 2K, 4K is double or 2X(1920x1080p)= 3840x2160p, 3840 is close to 4000, hence the 4K, when you choose the resolution, it shows you only the height, that is 2160p, the width however is 3840 (4K) AKA UltraHD!!
  • 920 ?
  • No, 1520
  • Come on 1520.3!!!
  • Yeah, the one from the internet that came in Spanish...
  • There was an Italian one too.
  • Any news about L720 India?
  • keep refreshing the app/website
  • Okay
  • Yes, it's cancelled
  • hehe good joke :)
  • +720 India .. Waiting ...
  • Is the L1520 being discontinued in Europe??
  • and you ask this... why?
  • Cause it says so in amazon uk's page, and I'm looking to buy one!!
  • oh didnt see this one. it may be, but it doesn't really matter, if your gonna buy one, just make sure you get an unlocked country variant so that you'll continue to recieve updates.
  • Hell no.
  • No way.
  • I believe so. It's not possible to buy it in Norway anymore.
  • It came off the Vodafone page so yes buying maybe discontinued
  • Damn, Microsoft is really efficient! Loving it!
  • Verizon is not, hating it.
  • Someone PLEASE tell me I can somehow flash the Finnish software to my att 1520. I did the French rom on my old 920 and loved the lack of att logo and faster updates back when amber came out. Would love that again on my magical 1520.
  • +1520  wanna know that too. got an AT&T and want Denim.
  • You can't unless you want a brick. Be patient and wait like the rest of us.
  • *a chance of getting a brick
    if I were you guys, I'd wait...
  • Flashed my phone 3 times yesterday. Nothing goes wrong unless you disconnect the usb during flashing, then you have an uinrecoverable brick
  • Well... Atleast, it's a brick with a 20MP Camera :)
  • This shows the level of intelligence in this thread, I changed my flash to uk variant from Chinese and got cyan 2 weeks before Chinese!
  • Nice, and I'm still waiting on Cyan from Verizon! 
  • +928
  • I got the Lumia Icon (929)
  • Same here. Everyone at work hates Verizon now.
  • Anyone from Finland please do hey Cortana demo video and post it into Youtube....... Eager to seee how it looks
  • +1
  • On Lumia 930 -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71Nz2lCrPtI
  • Thanks buddy , that's seems to by faster than Ok google noe
  • Thanks alot bro
  • Finland doesn't have Cortana.
  • Here's hoping we see it in Singapore before the New Year. :)
  • Nothing yet for brazilian version.
  • Hey Cortana has to be enabled in settings and you have to do voice training only works with the owners voice it seems when someone else try it wont work
  • That's a great feature
  • Keep them updates rolling! Glad to see Denim rolling out even though it's not in America yet.  My AT&T 1520 will be waiting.
  • Daniel has the 1520 right??
  • Pretty sure they all have every phone...ever.
  • I mean he use 1520 as his personal smartphone :)
  • Most likely seeing as it is currently the best WP ;)
  • Yes he indicated the 1520 is his main phone. No wonder he published this article himself rather than delgating it to other editors who have been posting about Denim recently.
  • Yes he is, at least last time he mentioned he was alternating between the 1520 and the 830 if I'm not mistaken.
  • Haha, lucky guys.
  • Why anyone from Windows Central is mentioning witch phones in Latin America are getting Denim??? You have made list for all other regions
  • Probably because they dint have info yet.
  • It was updated: http://www.microsoft.com/en/mobile/support/software-update/wp8-software-update/availability-in-latin-america/
  • I want this in America
  • U.S 1520
  • Must be nice...
  • I got an ATT 1520 unlocked running Cyan of Telus in Canada.... Weird eh? Hope Demin is a-boat (lol) to happen....
  • When'll get denim update for 925 in India??
  • No more coming soon bro you will get it in no time !!
  • Lucky guys in Finland!!
  • This rollout is expanding really fast!
  • Hope it keeps increasing in momentum.
  • I realise that the 1520 is over a year old, but please Microsoft, finally offer the 1520 unlocked for Canada. We need something! Windows 10 devices are still a year away. That means a 3 year wait for Canadian 920 owners since we had a top tier flagship.
  • Woo-hoo! Downloading the Denim update as I typed this! I got the FINLAND firmware 059V281 RM-937 VAR EURO FI CV WHITE flashed on my 059V254 RM-937 VAR APAC HK CV WHITE 1520. I kept on checking via phone update. Nothing! I HAD to DISABLE 'PREVIEW FOR DEVELOPER' for the update to commence. #GiddyWithExciteMent
  • Hows the update? :) 
  • Loving 'Hey Cortana' which you have to activate by 'training' her in the Phone Settings.  
  • does the update come with lumia camera 5.0?
  • Yes and it's zippy-fast ;) 
  • How do you "disable" DP?
  • Uncheck the box in the app Preview for Developers
  • What's hk? Hong Kong? So, all you need is for the RM-xxx to match?
  • Please post a link to the Finland dirmware
  • Latin America page updated! http://www.microsoft.com/en/mobile/support/software-update/wp8-software-update/availability-in-latin-america/  
  • Keep it rolling... longing for my Lumia 1520 Hong Kong to get the update with the new camera!
  • When is availble for Vietnam???? My 1520 :(
  • What about Mexico? I have a1520 in México City. Provider isTelcel. Will I get the update?
  • I didn't know Telcel was selling the 1520.
  • Everytime an article pops up talking about a firmware update all I see is something like this: OMG NOT AVAILABLE, WHEN IS IT AVAILABLE IN X COUNTRY?, I GOT THE UPDATE, VERIZON SUCKS (they do I know), YOU'RE STUPID I'VE HAD THE UPDATE FOR A FEW WEEKS. I'm sure I'm missing a few but people, spamming these exact messages isn't helping anyone. It's annoying trying to scroll down and find legimite comments or questions. So please think about it next time.
  • Verizon doesn't even have Cyan though. That's a very frustrating thing.
  • We're getting closer...? US Lumia 1520 Owner
  • USA, USA, USA........1520! Guess I'm getting a little excited & anxious.
  • It frustrating not getting this update on my 1520 att, but its also nice to see a change in pace with the update starting on the other end of the spectrum. I think this shows Microsoft still going against the standard of mobile OS yet again.
  • Will preview users get Denim ?
  • Yes. Why wouldn't they?
  • I want it to come already
    Come on USA
  • Can we update using 3g for 520?
  • Noo!!
  • No update yet on my phone. 1520 from AT&T.
  • When is 1520 in India. Going to get...pls release it ..at least they could have released in finland an India like that...pls release next for india
  • I changed region to Finland but the update is not coming up(Lumia 1520)
  • You can't cheat that way. The availability depends on the phone's ROM.
  • Mine got it!!!! USA 1520.3
  • Yay! I got denim on my US 1520 ATT but no Denim features...
  • Same here... I just noticed I have it but none of the features... Wtf
  • Then it isn't Denim and it's a report bug.
  • What a tease...
  • This morning i had extras+info update. I looked it said cyan. Tonight all of a sudden changed to Denim.
  • Bug.
  • What the heck! It just automatically converted back to Cyan!
  • It's magic!! The magic of the Christmas.
  • If you checked pfd app then you see cyan firmware in extras+info. But if you uncheck it then it will be denim. Just make sure that you restart your phone after unchecking pfd app.
  • Ok
  • My 1020 RM-875 received extra+info update which says my phone has Denim software!!! While 520 RM-915 and 1520 RM-937 also received extra-info update but no Denim!
  • That is a bug... It has already been discussed on windows central. You do not have denim
  • Uncheck the box in DP and see extras+info
  • Anyone got denim in Lumia 620 in India
  • Morroco is also there in list of 1520
  • Meh
  • come on.. Lumia 1520.1.. Cant wait for denim.
  • What about south Africa any news
  • Mine shows I have denim also after I turned off preview for developers for a 1520.1 on ATT in U.S with the Hong-Kong APAC ROM
  • That's the bug.
  • Here in India Lumia 520 only getting OS update there is no firmware update. Its same as cyan firmware no.
  • Os version of denim?
  • Denim is downloaded to my L1520 (Finland) 
  • Will it be available for preview for developers + it supports 630?
  • Yes and yes.
  • Friends please vote for my feature suggestion in user voice forum for adding USB OTG support in windowsphone. https://windowsphone.uservoice.com/forums/101801-feature-suggestions/sug...
  • Downloading the update :) Lumia 1520 and in Finland. But you have to turn of the preview for developers to be able to find the update. At least mine didn't until I turned it off.
  • I disabled DP too to find the update
  • They became eligible means we are gonna get the update for sure or just OS and no firmware ?
    Can anyone please tell
  • When will Lumia denim come to 920 in India.
  • I think Microsoft is going to give Denim to everybody as a Christmas present.....so I think we will all have it before Dec. 24th......congrats Finland
  • Are there an other minor feature changes that we do not know of? to those already rocking #denim?
  • One thing I notice, in the 'Phone Update', there is now an option to "Tell me when updates are available for my phone" which wasn't there pre-Denim with latest updates for Preview for Developers. Also there's 'Hey Cortana' option added in the settings where you have to enable that option by recording ('training') your voice 5 times saying, "Hey Cortana" inside a silent room.
  • Ms can still add this feature ie hey Cortana, to other Lumias apart from the 930 and 1520, they should just make it work when the phone is charging, then saying hey Cortana will activate Cortana
  • Yaaay I got denim on my 520 here in Botswana. I love ❤ it
  • Hopefully you haven't got the bug but the real features.
  • Still no love for Lumia 630?

  • St
    Ill nothing for UK cv?
  • Why the fuch does every country get the lates firmware update way before the u.s. ?????
  • There...there...its all about market share and selling volume...us doesn't seem to like WP very much, but the rest of the world does and finally Microsoft acknowledged that.
  • Ya right
  • lol fuch
  • @Zonkeyd, Why the US get the Microsoft band and not any other countries in the entire world? lol ;-)
  • Hopefully the 1520.3 variant will follow soon
  • Why nothing for the Lumia 930, it's meant to be there flagship. UK.
  • My swedish 930 got update this morning. Unchecked PfD.
  • Hopefully you haven't got the bug but the real features.
  • Same here, but last night! No problems so far
  • Almost no 820 anywhere.
  • Come on Lumia Denim my Lumia 1020 waiting for you! UK
  • I'm very confused here in Spain. My 1520 extras+info says Lumia Denim (all the additional info shows the right versions), but the device shows firmware 0261.00066.14253.40002 into about section (I bought it in the UK). No Lumia Camera app, no 4k capture, etc.
  • Just updated. Thanks to me that I changed my firmware to Finland's while Cyan Updating. Had a guess that Finland firmware get updates sooner than others.
  • They do since Nokia was founded in Finland therefore the customers there get that loyalty.
  • Just now updated!!!
  • In India using 525 hasn't yet got any updates
  • Just updated my Finnish 1020 to Denim.
  • Why 920 always LAST ! F*CK !
  • Updated to Denim on 1520. So far I think it fixed battery drain on Cyan. Also I have found that camera starts up fast if it is in background, which sucks. Also rich capture takes too long for saving photo. Also there is no sound filter under video settings and make sound in front clearer
  • Hi givi !
    Can you try 4k recording for one minute and then play it and see if there any problems?
  • Just restart your phone after update. Don't try to use full stream just after updating. It will fix the problem or otherwise make a hard reset. Haven't got any issues as I restarted my phone after update before testing it.
  • I got denim on my 1520 .
    Tried the new camera app I had problems with the 4k recording ( while I play the video ) . But the still images are little better than before .also rich capture is awesome.
    I ccan't find the night mod or sequence mod on the new camera!!
    ......
    Hey Cortana also available but it didn't work under lock screen.
  • Hey Cortana works 70% of the time for me when the phone is locked. Only wish I could use it with my headphones though, since I have headphones on most of the day.
  • I'm getting "The update was downloaded but couldn't be opened 80188306" on my Finnish CV of L1520 when I try to Update the OS to Denim :(
  • Same Error... :(
  •  :( me too 
  • Disable PfD. Then try.
  • I've never even signed for PfD ;) It seems something else must have caused the error. Anyway, the problem's gone - my OS successfully auto-updated itself today to Denim :)
  • Downloading on t mobile 920, was flashed with French rom ages ago so ots unbranded and unlocked UPDATE: installed and working fine
  • Just need this in the UK now =D
  • Can any one share the Finland denim download link to flash it on my 1520.
  • I am on AT&T in the US and woke up to my 1520 with Denim. AT&T is on the ball this time!
  • It may be the detection issue. Ugh. I spoke too soon. Says Denim, and numbers match the image above, but has the build date from July. Ugh.
  • Error 80188306 installing denim on 1520 finland cv ''I downloaded the update but I can not open it'' Why ???
  • Hello.I've got the same problem .Any help , please.
  • Denim rom link to flash
  • Is benig on pfd is a problem we are not getting updates
  • Yes you need to disable PfD to get the update.
