Lumia Cyan update rolling out for Lumia 920 smartphones in Canada [Update: India, UK and more]

Update: We have gotten a number of other tips indicating the Cyan update is now being rolled out for the Lumia 920 in other parts of the world, including India, the UK, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, and the UAE.

Original story: The official Nokia Canada Twitter page has just posted word that the Lumia Cyan software update is now rolling out to owners of the Lumia 920 smartphone up in the Great White North.

This means that the folks who still own the nearly two year old Windows Phone 8 smartphone will be able to get updated to Windows Phone 8.1. These over-the-air updates are usually rolled out in phases, so it may be a while before every Lumia 920 owner in Canada gets to download the Cyan update. Once again, we offer a reminder that if you're running the Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers, you need to downgrade to Windows Phone 8 to be eligible to receive the Cyan update.

If you own a Lumia 920 in Canada are you excited about the prospect of getting the Cyan update? Thanks to Jacob for the tip!

  • AMERICA!!!!
  • Verizon is winning the slow as hell award.
  • I beg to differ.... T-Mobile is the winner (Loser) of that award... Lumia 925 already got the update on a different carrier, but here I am..waiting.....
  • Ditto. When 925 came out it was getting updates promptly. I don't like TMO updates ethics when it comes to devices over 6+ months old. It's not right.
  • lmao, you got me cracking up here with that comment
  • Lol Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • Why release 8.1 for existing phones when you can promote an exclusive 8.1.1 phone from HTC that will likely NEVER receive another update (from HTC or Verizon)?!
  • Canada and Mexico are in America I think you mean US.
  • Yeah, I meant US. Still annoyed though.
  • Tell me about it! 920 was so late 2 updates ago. The last one we got was quick! At that point I did think that AT$T got all my nastygrams. Looks like it was just a fluke. Back to bashing that evil spiteful company.
  • You have to see it from AT&T's perspective. People dumb enough to still use a two year old phone when they're paying for it every month don't need no updates... (not calling anyone dumb, that's what AT&T thinks of their customers)
  • And that's still the wrong view. What's harder than bringing in customers? Bringing back customers that already left. If they abandon or heavily delay Lumia 920 updates, people will start leaving and may never look back. Look at all the HTC M8 articles' comments section, tons of comments about people never going back to HTC because of the way they ignored their Windows Phones. Same for me, M8 looks nice but never again. My HTC Surround was completely abandoned and never recieved the 7.8 update.
  • I find your line of thinking interesting, if not somewhat pedantic.  I know of no one who refers to those from the USA as anything other than Americans, and I know of no Canadians or Mexicans who would call themseles Americans.  Also, if you really want to be pedantic, all of South America is America, too.  But I dare you to call a Colombian an American :)
  • It is true that people from USA are referred to as Americans... But that does not mean that people from the other countries are not Americans. But no one within the American continent would refer to people from USA as Americans as we all are... The fact that people outside of America, call only people from the USA Americans, is actually incorrect and stupid.
  • My Canadian friends all call people from the USA Americans.  They call themselves Canadians and would never identify themselves as Americans.  The USA is the only country with America actually in the name.  What do you think people from the United States of America should be called?
  • United States of Americans... Kidding, I am Canadian, and I refer to you as Americans.  I do not know why people make a big deal, we are Canadian, you are American, and people from Mexico are Mexican.  People get to sensitive.All that matters we are ALL human.  lol well most are. 
  • Speak for yourself, puny human!
  • Captain Jack knows we're not all human
  • We Americans are made in the image of the maker himself, beset with morals above all other nations.....we rule the Earth. And we did it in just a 150 years. /s
  • Asia is for Asians. Chinese,Korean,Japanese,Filipino,Thai,Malaysian, Indonesian = Asians
  • I'm a Cylon/American... Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for Nexus 7
  • I understand your argument Fallen, but tell me, how do you refer to people from Asia? Regardless of the country they live in.
  • Well im filipino and im from asia:P
  • Asia has more countries than north america and most people doesnt memorize every country so they referred them as asians
  • Actually Asia has not that many more countries than America does but I understand your point, which is the reason why this whole argument started. I can asure you that most people do not know all of the countries in America either. Therefore, it would make it easier to say "American" dont you think? just the same way it would be easier to say "Asian", "European". My whole argument was that not only people from USA should be titled as "Americans" and if someone says "I am american" it should not be translated to "I am from the USA". Thats all I am saying.
  • In general, I don't identify people by their continent, but by their country.  A person from India is very little like a person from China, just as a person from Chile is very little like a Canadian.  Few people say they're European, they say they're French or German or Italian.  Nationalism! Now, I don't have a problem if someone from Latin America/Central America/North America/South America/Whatever America wants to say they're American for shorthand, but saying that those from the United States of America can't is just silly, and all the alternatives are worse.  Things like Norteamericano and Estadounidense don't actually point to a single country (and, hilariously, Estadounidense is translated in most languages to "American").
  • Fallen, I agree on most of what you just said. However, if someone says "Estadounidense" thats specifically referring to people from the US. Also, I did not state that those from USA can't say that they are Americans. My whole argument was that not only those from USA should say that, or when someone says "I am American" it should not be translated to "I am from the USA" because that is not correct. That is my whole point.
  • If you want to be politically correct. People from Canada and USA and Mexico are North Americans. Not just Americans
  • +920 lol, can't argue with that.
  • No, no, we Americans are shaped morals like the maker himself, and we rule the world./s
  • Well people from América outside USA happen yo be americans as well and we are not anoyed to be called americans in spanish people from states are "Estadounidenses" i do not know in Portuguese.
  • Never in my life have I seen this to be true and I've travelled in Europe and Asia. Every single person I've ever met has used the term American to refer specifcially to someone from the United States. I've also had friends, classmates and coworkers from all over North and South America and not a single one of them called themselves American, and when the term was used it applied specifically to someone from the US. Yes, Mexicans are North Americans and Brazilians are South Americans, but that's very different from the term American. It's a word with a specific, clearly and universally accepted meaning. The only time I've ever seen people claim otherwise is online where people bring up some pendantic BS that always feels agenda-driven.
  • I know right? Hopefully they won't take much longer... C'mon ATT, all your other lumias have cyan at this point...
  • 'Merica. There, that means US.
  • You must mean 'Murikah right?
  • I AGREE!
  • If last week is any hint, that means AT&T should be following suit very soon!
  • I have a 920, and I still think that att can still decide not to roll it out.
  • It's coming out on AT&T. I've been posting for a while that someone in the know there told me Cyan would be released by the end of August. If you look at the release cadence for most other Lumia models, AT&T should start their rollout by the end of the week.
  • I hope so.  My mom is excited to get Cortana on her 920.
  • Just enroll her on the Dev Preview, no need to wait!
  • Yes I agree Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • Awesome waiting to USA come for my friend Lumia 920 I already got it on my Lumia 925
  • I just got mine here in the US ..920
  • I have an AT&T 920 and no update here
  • My 1020 got a mysterious update today. Yeah!?
  • Did you read the article from earlier this morning lol
  • Yup. I just wanted to join in. Even though my update is a complete mystery.
  • It's a "seems faster"update if you know what I mean...
  • Same here Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • What's new that is there in lumia cyan that isn't in windows phone 8.1 preview for developers?
  • Little things like Bluetooth fixes and such
  • I better stay with preview then, all that trouble for just Bluetooth fixes
  • He means Bluetooth 4.0LE. It gets disabled in the DP. Get Cyan.
  • Bluetooth has connection problems in DP without drivers update (Cyan). So for everyone that use bthd, it's a big deal.
  • How many times does need to be asked?
  • BT4 LE. This alone is good enough for me to update(when att actually releases it). Cyan is not really much of a OS-update but more of a "driver pack", that enables WP8 to better utilize the hardware in 920. 
  • As far as I can tell, aptX and BT4LE. And hopefully a lot fewer BT bugs. 8.1 GDR1 adds aptX, but it doesn't actually work without Cyan (I've heard it does with Cyan though).
  • I hope that it fixes some lag issues, like when you swipe to app list and then back to home screen, there's a bit of a latency there. Also if the notification centre has many notifications, it's really laggy when pulling it down, also there are lot of crashes on ie and on some apps.  +920
  • Update rolled out for 920 in India!
  • Yap ... true... 920 for India .... Feeling awesome :D
  • Are you serious?
  • Really?
  • Rolled out? are you asking a question or telling that it's rolled out. Because there is still no official confrimation regarding that
  • yes.. its rolled out.. just simply check your phone update section... 
  • That's an awesome news... looong wait is over
  • Finally after many long days..
  • Yay! Now to wait till bitlocker gets fixed!
  • You do not need to downgrade to Windows Phone 8. The Nokia Recovery Tool program immediately installs the Cyan update. At least, it was what happened to me.
  • Any bricking or other funny business by your L920?
  • Good to know thanks! Just to confirm, you already did the update on Rogers NL920?
  • Yes it does updated my mother's 520 yesterday with ease
  • you serious bro ?
  • Did your data like game saves get erased?  My understanding is using the recovery tool erases everything and starts you back at square one.  It's a small issue for, but I don't feel like playing the same levels again.
  • not everything will be erased, your startscreen set-up will be saved as will some settings, with regards to app/games data that solely depends on the dev
  • I guess I'll get the dev preview update MS just released and hope for the best.
  • do you have an NL920? If so you will likely not be getting it cause of the 308 partition error
  • Yes you'll lose non-cloud saves and also the videos and photos. They'll be in the cloud backed up but not right there on the phone.
  • My UK 920 CV has just started downloading :) Edit: Bah spoke to soon, it's a pre-update update >.<
  • Bummer...dude i rushed into settings...
  • Another update should follow the first one... Happened when I updated my 1520 to 8.1/Cyan...
  • Thanks..will keep an eye..
  • Cheers! Indeed a second update is currently downloading.  
  • Im in the US on at&t and I just got the notification for my 920
  • Lucky you. You seem to be the only one. Did you buy a Rogers branded 920?
  • My bad, I'm running on developer preview and got an update from that I guess..
  • Are you running the DP? There was an updated for that today.
  • Tittie sprinkles!
  • Developer Preview is updating to version 8.10.14157.200. It's not Cyan
  • DP is different than Cyan anyhow.  DP is Microsoft operating software and Cyan is Nokia firmware.
  • Captain obvious has arrived :D
    I was talking to who is saying "I'm downloading cyan!!!"
  • 200? This could mean it is the fix for the X308
  • Yes cause cyan has been blocked for DP devices you are probably getting 8.1 update 1
  • Same here on my Lumia 920 CV Germany.
  • My CV Germany also
  • anyone know how to get rid of the following error message 805a0194 it showed up in the store after I undated to Cyan on my 1020 it says apps have been waiting for more than a week to be updated - I have no non updated apps
  • Try to sync your MS account. Are date and time correct? 
  • yes everything else is fine just that issue
  • Finally!! thanks buddy
  • Funny how they say "in Canada," but the 920 is a Rogers exclusive here...
  • Nope,telus has it too
  • Telus doesn't have the 920, I think you're thinking about the 1020
  • Correct.
  • Well seeing as Nokia's Canadian sales office jumped the gun in announcing other cyan updates their no more trustworthy then the providers
  • Not so funny is how the update has no inclusion of Cortana :(
  • I'm in developer preview program but now there is a update for me
    Jordan nl520
  • Could be the GDR1 update
  • Turns out to be a DP update
  • Now if only the developer preview was fixed by now.  Things like Cortana not telling me when someone texts me is getting annoying.  I'm not sure if this is an issue with being on the preview without cyan, but I'm sure having the update wouldn't hurt.
  • My phone is actually updating right  now, but i have no idea what it is updating
  • Even I am getting an update but not sure if its cyan...
  • Ohh god release it for all atleast
  • Got it yester day for my Lumia 720... All are good but Xbox music and video are very very very horrible
  • And where do You live? I have L720 too. I live in the Netherlands, but still no cyan for me...
  • How come my Lumia is great. When the sound that used to be there when changing to the next song is now gone
  • I just tipped you guys before seeing this, I recieved the update for 920 in UAE
  • Great...now waiting for the UK release!
  • USA on AT&T. Checked update on 920, downloading.
  • You have DP?
  • Yes
  • that would be a dp update, not cyan  :( did it about an hour ago myelf
  • Waiting for the cyan update for my Lumia 920 in the US, when this update comes will I also get 8.1?
  • I'm on DP, Rogers 920 got the update
  • Why can't I just force update cyan? We have always been able to in the past...force amber and black....does anyone have the firmware that can be bootloaded! I have a Lumia Icon and I want better battery life and blue tooth for my fitbit!
  • Cyan now available for L920 in India!
  • I was almost happy until I saw the word "Canada".. No offense to our neighbors up north, just getting impatient with at&t... *sigh*
  • cv denmark as well  
  • I'm on cyan on my 930 with update 1 and my phone is downloading an update too
  • that's because another update just came out
  • Congratulations Canada. According to Microsoft its now the "First two weeks of July" in Canada. So 820 has to wait. What great customer service Microsoft has. 520,720 getting it before 820 and 920. Way to attract more customers Microsoft.
  • According to Canada it is now end of September for the past few weeks!
  • Jus received lumia cyan update on ma L520 in Ghana.
  • I'm on DP and getting the update, can it be cyan?
  • unlikey seeing how Cyan has been blocked for DP for now
  • South Africa woohooooooo.yeaaaaaaa
  • Congrats bru, hopefully L620 is next.
  • Got it on my lumia 920 in india
  • Still no update for my Lumia 620 India....
  • 920 cv Australia
  • lumia cyan update released in the uae.
  • I'm cose to getting an upgrade with AT&T soon. I'm stuck between getting the Galaxy Note or the 1520, but leaning towards the Note. I was hoping this update would come soon to sway me towards WP, but Cyan may come in too late for that...
  • The 1520 has 8.1+Cyan, will probably be the third or fourth device to get debian red+GDR1.
  • Yeah, we're already talking about Debian Red, but I have yet to fully experience Cyan. Unfortunately, I am on an 18 month cycle with AT&T, so I'm stuck with whatever phone I get. So, my best chance of getting a good idea whether or not to stay with WP is to see if the Cyan update brings in some major improvements. 
  • Yep, 920 with 8.0 Black.
  • It's not that 8.0 Black is all that bad, it's just that it kind of feels dated. I can't really justify staying with WP as is, but if 8.1 Cyan is a promising update, then I can definitely bank on going Windows for another year and a half.
  • 920 India downloading right now.
  • Lumia 920 cv India running windows phone 8 is now downloading Windows phone 8.1 + cyan firmware update. Recieved a small update which should prepare the phone for the 8.1 update.
  • Oh, 920 wp8.1 is!... Ah, not Europe
  • Heart skipped a beat when I saw "920...Cyan." but then read that it was Canada. We must wait a bit longer.
  • we're sorry eh! ;P
  • Still waiting for NL920 for me and 820 for my wife. I need to get this done before I get back to my village
  • I have a Rogers 920, but I may just continue keeping it on WP8 instead of updating it to 8.1. It's my only Windows Phone not already running 8.1 (other two are on 8.1 via developer preview).
  • Thinking the same thing. I find that I use the people hub with FB more than anything else on the phone. I really don't want to give that up. Also I like the simplicity of the game hub and the XBox entertainment hub with music, video, and podcast all in one place. I have a 520 on the DP, but I only use that phone when my battery dies. So I am very familiar with 8.1 and do enjoy the new tricks, but 8.0 is a more elegant solution in comparison to 8.1.
  • 920 Rogers here , updated last night to 8.1 ,  there were 2 stages of updating I think. After the 1st one i was upset caused it's was still 8.0 but then it says there's another update, then my 920 got 8.1.
  • My Lumia 920 DK CV is just receiving the Windows 8.1 with Cyan!!!!
  • How are people on AT&T getting the cyan update? My 920 says its up to date......
  • You and me both. Is there some kind of staggered rollout where not every server gets the update package at the same time?
  • Denmark Lumia 920 Country Variant is also receiving the Cyan Update!
  • Wp central correction i have lumia 920 cv ph. And i got the official update too here in the philippines....
  • I think all Lumias 920 CV are getting the update worldwide right now..!
  • Is this true? But according here http://www.nokia.com/global/support/software-update/wp8-software-update/... Philippines
    Lumia 920 Country Variant is still Under Testing ? Can you confirm by going to Settings > Extras+Info > "And check if the update is already Lumia Cyan"?
  • Is it your phone is came in Philippines? My co-workers' 920 got an update, but it wasn't bought in the Philippines but from UAE.
  • My white 920.3 rm 820 Cv mexico is getting Lumia Cyan right this moment. Finally!!!
  • I am on DP and I am also receiving an update. Since I have GDR 1 installed, I was hoping it should be cyan.
  • I just recieved some update in Lumia 920. - Finally in INDIA? Still Installing....
  • I just got it on my 920. Although I'm from the Netherlands, it's a Swedish Country variant.
  • Cyan is also available in Denmark (CV) for the 920
  • Hell yeah! I thought i'd rather die than receive the Cyan for my L920... xDD
  • Just checked Nokias site, Denmark still says "Under testing".
  • Cyan for Nokia Lumia 920 County Variant UK!!!!!   Downloading now :D   Ahh, it's a preupdate! I hope Cyan will follow shortly ^_^
  • It will. There are 2 updates. The 'pre installer' and then the main update.... Enjoy!!!
  • Downgraded from 8.1DP to stock WP8.0 a week and a half ago waiting for Cyan to come, finally glad it's here so I can update back up to 8.1 update 1 DP
  • started downloading.... here in Saudi Arabia
  • "This means that the folks who still own the nearly two year old Windows Phone 8 smartphone will be able to get updated to Windows Phone 8.1" Ok, but what does THAT mean? That I get Cyan, and WP 8.1 automatically rolls out after that, or do I have to still wait until Rogers rolls out WP 8.1? I only want to know when I get WP 8.1 on my 920. Anyone?
  • Sweet!!!
  • :)
  • This is not a Cyan update in my 920 CV PH. It is the latest DP update according to this post http://www.wpcentral.com/new-update-windows-phone-81-update-1-rolling-ou...
  • I'm currently downloading. Hopefully this year we get some new hardware from Rogers :(  Specifically the 1520. I don't know why Microsoft can't offer unlocked phone like the 1520 at their stores. Shit i'm like 15 min away from Yorkdale Mall, I would be over their in two shakes of a lambs tail.
  • No kidding.  Especially since in Canada, that's quickly becoming the only way to get a WP.  Unless you want a 630.
  • Installing - Slovenia
  • Those of us with 920s in the UK on EE will have to wait until mid-September for the official update.
  • Your kidding right? where did you get that info?
  • are you taking the pi$$.  Actually knowing EE no you're not!
  • Interesting, I checked my 920 instead of saying Update for Nokia Firmware (like it did with Black and Amber) it said Update for Windows Developer Preview version 8.1.1. I'm guessing it's Cyan but it wouldn't hurt just to say Update for Nokia Firmware....
  • And AT&T?...... In two weeks....
  • Damn AT&T taking their sweet ass time lol, but hey its coming eventually. - 1020
  • Well according to http://www.nokia.com/global/support/software-update/wp8-software-update/availability-in-europe/ only the 920's on O2 and Vodafone are getting it, I can't check on my CV model as I haven't downgraded yet.
  • Dubai is the same as UAE.
  • Just got an update for my L920 on AT&T. Not sure if it is cyan at this time, will update when installation is complete.
  • Not available for Nokia Lumia 920 Mobily Variant Saudi Arabia. I hate Carrier
  • what about germany !!!!!
  • I checked at Nokia to see if Nokia Lumia 920 CV (Sweden) was still "Under Testing" which it was, but I still had that urge to do a manual check and thank god I did. I can now confirm that the Lumia 920 CV (Sweden) is receiving the update. So those in Sweden with the Lumia 920, enjoy the update :) P.S I did not have the Developer Preview installed.
  • Hi, Nice to hear; which operator do you use? I'm using Telenor in Sweden, and just checked manually "2 seconds ago" - still no update... /A.
  • I bought my Lumia 920 online. But I use Comviq/Tele2.
  • In France too, but not mine (I'm on DP...)
  • Is that the "Sahara Dan" picture on that phone?
  • Just started on my Lumia 820..
  • What about gaza ? Can we get it before israeli rockets roll out first ?
  • :D
  • Is that a joke?
  • Whips out 920 on EE hoping to not be disappointed by this retard network. Tried everyday for the pass week and nothing. I don't even have DP on that device(that's on my 1020, eagerly awaiting BL fix) and EE haven't pushed the update. Worse carrier ever(in the UK)
  • Not only EE... Three UK is taking a **** as well... Usually no problems with them but this time... And they won't even say when they'll push it...
  • 2 minutes silent for those 920 user who update DP update 2, And downgrade OS for cyan update. :D
  • Thanks! I just checked and update is available
  • Downloaded first stage.....now second stage asking for WiFi....so stuck....not completed. Bhopal.India.
  • Bhopali... :D me too.. R u on DP?
  • Wtf Verizon come on already
  • Update in progress with 920 CV FR (France)... Is is Cyan ? To be continued in next post... (gear display...)
  • Downloading now. Question: I am on the Developer Preview, but I am getting an (the) update... did they sneak a fix in here??? I'll let you know. My phone was flashed with a French ROM when I grabbed Amber. Former AT&T phone (real live Cyan!) Could that make a difference? I factory reset my phone this week to solve an email issue, but did not roll back.
  • My Verizon 928 is receiving an update right now.  This is a new update of some sort since I just checked a few days ago and had no updates available. UPDATE: it's a Windows Phone 8.1 (8.10.14157.200) Preview for Developers Update
  • Same for my Icon, and God help me but the animations do! seem faster.
  • Sorry, I'm running WP 8.1 dev preview on my Rogers Lumia 920, are devices running dev previews still on hold for cyan or can I just go ahead and update?
  •  I have a Lumia 520 GoPhone, is my first smartphone I bought this year in april and I was thinking after a year or two to upgrade to 920. Is it a great upgrade?
  • I did it and I like the 920. Faster, brighter, bigger. Just wish it had more memory.
  • I have read that the lumia 920 has a yellow spots problem. Do you have it ?
  • I had once last year, have my screen replaced under warranty.
  • You do know that Dubai is IN the UAE right? right?
  • Got it now in the UK on my carrier free 920
  • RAWR!
  • Update for my Icon finally!
  • Denmark L920 cyan!
  • 925...and america
  • 920 from AT&T bought off contract in Tucson for use as a Go Phone. Presently on a TelCel (Mexico) plan here in the USA. Running Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview w/ Update1. Just received another update notification. Downloaded and Installing now. Thus far has taken about 15 minutes. It's at the Migration Phase (5 of 21). I'll update what I have when it completes.  
  • Completed. I have Windows OS 8.10.14157.200 Firmware: 3051.40000.1347.1001 I'm still on Lumia Black. So this was just a minor update. I guess if I roll back my dev preview to standard, then I will receive Lumia Cyan firmware as well. OK, now it's time to go read Daniel's HowTo..... In those instructions he says: "As soon as that is completed, you can hard-reset the phone. The reason for the hard reset is so that the OS can offer up the Restore process from the backup you created earlier."  This hard reset he is refereing to is holding down the Power and Volume Down buttons for 10 seconds until I get the blank screen and vibrate.... Just want to make sure we all agree on what is a soft reset, what is a hard reset... Thanks.
  • I'm following up on this.  I rolled back to Windows 8. Of course it's automatically installing my apps and prompted me to restore from the backup I had made earlier. The system is on Lumia Black. When I check for updates... I don't get the Cyan updates.  I'm hoping after all of my apps are installed, that I will get the Cyan update. If not...well what a fun exercise this had been. :'|  
  • Interesting... I'm not even getting updates for Windows 8.1... So yeah... straight WIndows Phone 8 feels weird when you are used to all of the new stuff we received with Windows Phone 8.1
  • So here's what I jsut did... Remember.. this was a Phone purchased in Tucson Arizona USA from AT&T during the 'exclusive period'... I put a GO (pay as you go chip in it). Now it's unlocked and using a TelCel (monthly plan here in Mexico) sim chip. So, I changed my country back to Mexico and my language back to Spanish... Boom... getting updates... I'll let you know in a bit how it goes..  (What's funny to do the original Developer Preview I had to tell the phone I was in the USA.. go figure...)
  • OK... I nominate myself for a Darwin Award and here's why: 1. I misread folks comments and actually believed several of you had in fact received Lumia Cyan firmware update on your Lumia 920 devices from AT&T in the USA.  Apparently, it's just all you folks on DevPreview receiving the latest Windows Phone 8.1.1 update....no firmware.  No one has yet provided a screen shot of their AT&T Lumia 920 with Cyan in the USA. 2. Havind misread the comments, I downgraded by Lumia 920 to Windows Phone 8.0. Restored my backup and let the Apps rip.  Checked.. Nothing.  Changed Languages and Regions... Checked... Getting an update.. Got Excited... Nope... Big Stupid..It was just stuff for the Spanish Language. 3. So, here I sit with my Lumia 920..downgraded to Windows Phone 8.0.. which means.. my VPN doesn't work... All of my photos, music, etc... have been removed (so I have to re-transfer them back on)... Allot of Apps didn't auto download/restore (looking at you Fidelity App). 4. OF course the 3 wide capability is gone... so the Start Screen configuration is wiped too... 5. I wasted more than 2 hours doing all of this...
  • sorry to hear this - made for a good and useful read though! so thanks.
     
  • Bleh I don't want to downgrade :(
  • Downloading on L920 Netherlands CV...first update done. After it said to check for 8.1 update. Second update just slowly started, I hope it is 8.1+Cyan.
  • Just flash Italy yesterday but now it's rolling out to my country
  • I got some DP updated downloading, Lumia 920 in Czech Republic, Europe. Just in time, I was thinking about flashing Italian CV or Slovakian Orange ROM.
  • Blah, it was just DP update, nothing else :(
  • Yeah. It is not a Cyan Update. It is just a DP Update
  • Well, my friend from Czech Republic just received some updates, one smaller and one larger, it's not done yet, but it says Windows Phone 8.1 (8.10.12393.890). I am curious to see, if it's with Cyan or not. It's really weird, because I am checking with NaviFirm+ and there is no L920 CZ CV Cyan ROM present.
  • My friend from Czech Republic updated his Lumia 920 CZ CV and got 3051.50009.1424.0004, he wasn't in DP program. Well, so it seems the Bitlocker issue isn't solved yet and I should downgrade to get it too :(
  • Welll, Lumia 920 - Czech Variant - installed. This variant (unlocked phone) is valid for Slovakia where I reside. So I can atest it works in our region :) jupiii ...
  • Lumia Cyan update rolled out in India too. Just updated my Lumia 920
  • Lumia 920 UK Tesco CV installing Cyan now Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • L920 CV GB updated to 8.1 cyan but still no Cortana.
  • No Cortana in Canada yet either, so don't worry
  • Still not available for the german Country Variant :/
  • Also CV Finland start getting the update. Yeah!!!!!
  • Well I have L920 CV FR but running DP. And I've recieved one update.
    Maybe preparing the fix for bitlocker issue?
  • LUMIA 920 CYAN update started in SERBIA just now!!!!
  • Guys when will it roll out for my Lumia 525 CV in India ... I think we also deserve surprises like others getting it earlier than said ,,, as said to be in September.... Please for 525 this time...
  • My 1020 just got Cyan update. I'm in Australia. for my WP8.1 DP
     
  • TIP: 920 CV getting Lumia Cyan in India now!
  • FL920 CV GB updated to 8.1 cyan but still no Cortana.
  • Cortana comes with Update 1
  • I'm over it, 8.1 or not. I am so tired of all the hype to only be forced to wait for months for it, very anticlimactic
  • Very excited
  • Nobody to ask about dev. Preview users :/
  • I'm on DP 8.1 update 1, downloding an update now. I assume it's Cyan, could be a small fix to the DP/bitlocker bug before getting cyan
  • what abt 820?
  • Updating 920 in Finland. Country variant.
  • I think it's downloading now...but it said it was only 5MB?
  • Just finish updating the first part...now downloading the 2nd one, france cv L920
  • Finally my 920 CV Romania is getting the update! Installing...
  • Rolling started in Turkey
  • The gears are turning as I type.  Not too bad, Rogers.
  • Does anyone know when Cyan update officially rolls out for NL920 AT&T?
  • Having an AT&T L920 w/8.1 preview, if I restore my phone back to WP8, how much data/settings will I lose before upgrading to Cyan when it finally gets released?
  • I would say almost everything stored in the phone... try to backup with Onedrive all you can like docs and pics, and the contacts are just stored in your MS account. 
  • i did it.  so much stuff gets wiped. for instance all of my custom APN settings (internet,mms) (Telcel doesn't know how to configure those automatically on the NL920)...so I had to look on the internet for those again. allot of apps didn't come over. from what I can tell no 3rd party app settings were saved.  I'm not quite sure what the security/config backup/restore does.... because i didn't feel like anything really got restored... I was left with setting everything up again. now i have a phone on phone 8.0... will wait to see if we get the cyan this or next week... if not... back to the dev preview for me.
  • Just got the 920 update here in LA,CA - America! At&t, finally!  
  • yessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss! uk l920 country variant updating now.
  • Nokia Lumia 920 Cyan update installed! Telenor Serbia
  • Cyan update for Germany when? ;__;
  • Can't wait for Cyan on my 920 in Tunisia !!
  • Rogers just updated this page, http://communityforums.rogers.com/t5/forums/forumtopicpage/board-id/GeneralCareSupport/thread-id/355. I guess it's actually available.
  • Installed the preparation update for wp8.1. Charging the battery to full before the beast update starts on my fav WP 920. Its 2.30AM here, but I have waited enough for this moment. B-)
  • Wtf didn't att said that they were going to first on releasing 8.1
  • Maybe im missing something but why can the installer check if we have bitlocker enabled and then stop the install. Most people have it switch off (i thought) so we should all get the CYAN update an those with bitlocker enabled wait a bit longer???? Anyways, Im not rolling back yet, i'll wait on a fix.
  • Still stuck in limbo with that blasted 80188308 Developer Preview error. Nokia software recovery is throwing error codes whilst trying to flash it back to stock. Oh well...guess I should be content with what I have.
  • -Icon =(
  • Cyan for Lumia 820? It's coming?
  • I know I am whining, like others. But seeing this is released in many other countries but not the US is like shooting yourself in the foot. Come on MS - do something about this - kick ATT in the nuts.
  • Now that Microsoft makes the hardware and the software they should release a completely carrier independent phone. Every update will come straight from Microsoft and carriers will just have to suck it up. Sell it factory unlocked directly from Microsoft.
  • ok, were do we sign the petition?
  • Since most people in the US get their phone from the carrier, you have to play by their rules. They can sell unlocked phones at Microsoft Stores and maybe at the Microsoft@Best Buy stores but how many people would go out and buy an unlocked device for full price (even if it usually ends up being cheaper)?
  • Not on 920 UK CV yet
  • I got mine last night just checked for updates and it came down
  • Why why why we have ro wait so long with the 1520.1 belgium Netherlands cauntry variant omg This is taking so much time wile other 1520 phones alredy have it
  • If only they roll updates faster after they reveal them,i wouldn't have to install different rooms and preview fro developers and break my warranty each time, also the number of times i had to do a hard reset cuz of bugs it's a pain to install all the apps over and over and enter accounts and download backups
  • my last hard reset was the least painful one ever. It installed all my apps and accounts automatically. I just had to verify a few of the accounts. I don't think there is much to complain about anymore.
  • Still awaiting it on EE here in England!
  • My Lumia 920 from the Build conference is getting it too edit: ok the first update was a developer preview update, I'm assuming it's a fix for the bitlocker issue. hopefully cyan will follow up
  • assumptions are the mother of all f*******s - its not a fix to the bitloker issue unfortunatly
  • L920 CV updating now in Australia!  
  • Got Cyan before in uk on cv l920
  • How. L920 gb cv is still showing as under test.
  • I just checked for updates and it wad there
  • Yaaaa its finally here. +920 India.
  • Can anyone confirm their Rogers 920 has successfully upgraded to Cyan. I want be sure its there before downgrading from dev preview.
  • I can confirm. It's in two stages, so you have to update twice. But I'm in Ontario and have a Rogers 920 now rocking Cyan
  • Finally!!! Lumia 920 CV Argentina!
  • Really? In Brazil nothing yet... =(
     
  • Yeah, really. I'm using it. Try to check manually for updates again.
  • In Brazil an operator released Cyan for Lumia 920 before Microsoft®. Incredible!
  • No way...
  • add turkey to that list. ware getting lumia cyan right now for 920!
  • Guys I wanna ask I know its not the right place sorry , what's better the 820 AMOLED screen or the 920 IPS LCD? Which is better , which has more vibrant. Colors ?
  • More vibrant colors will likely be AMOLED.
  • So what's better the IPS LCD or the AMOLED ?
  • Personal preference.
  • It's updating in Spain too the CV :)
  • Trust me the 920 looks better I had the two
  • My phone buzzed for an update about 30 minutes ago ... "oooh, Cyan" I thought. Nope. Don't know what it was, but it wasn't Cyan. I'm on EE in the UK on a 920.
  • Check the updates again and you will receive Cyan
  • Nope, no other updates arriving.
  • It doesn't take a genius to figure out that at&t is withholding this update from Lumia 920 owners because the 920 is nearly two years old and at&t wants us to buy new phones. Alright at&t I'll buy a new phone, too bad it won't be on your network.
  • What they really want is to lock you into to another two year contract. Only way to do that is to dangle a new phone in front of you. Since the monthly bill on AT&T usually includes a $25-30 phone subsidy, the longer you wait the more expensive that 920 gets
  • It is an ironi actually. My 920 is great. So i dont really feel the need to replace with newer model. But for Nokia it is not so great because I'm not buying a new one. No sale from me.
  • There's no cyan for Verizon??
  • I upgraded my Lumia 920 on Rogers to Windows 8.1 and everything went good.  I was wondering if the Quiet Hours feature was suppose to be in this update or will it be coming in Update 1?  I looked everywhere on my phone and I don't have it.
  • That is a Cortana feature which isn't available in Canada yet. Patience ;)
  • Got it, Portland Oregon
  • no you didn't for Lumia 920. update to DP 8.1 maybe. What does it show under Extras and Info under settings? Cyan? Then you are the first in the US to get it. Or there is a Portland Oregon in Australia?
  • Yep got two updates for Rogers Canada 920. Sadly had to switch to US region to get Cortana working. C'est la vie!
  • Ya I know, right? All the news articles are state side and the temperature info is all •F... Other than that I have heard the official Cortana app for Canada comes with Update 1 in a month or so.
  • Got update in Pakistan too! Just about now  
  • How to degrade from 8.1 to 8 please........ Tell me guys
  • Use nokia software recovery tool. Google it. Its very easy to get
  • MALAYSIA !!! L920 CYAN
  • Available already in Malaysia?
  • Yes, it is  and the speed seems faster and smoother   
  • Too bad my WP runs the DP8.1. I will just wait then...
  • I just updated my lumia 920 to cyan in nigeria
  • Im From Mexico and gettin 8.1 update from IUSACELL carrier 
  • Muricá
  • For those who already updated. Please post any problems or noticeable improvements. Especially report on battery.  
  • Malaysia too!
  • +920
  • Wait, already available in Malaysia?
  • Yes, if you're running the Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers, you need to downgrade to Windows Phone 8 to be eligible to receive the Cyan update
  • Yes. Too bad, my WP runs it.
  • Cyan, come to grandpa! ~from Malaysia with love~
  • To make sure you installed a Cyan Update, go to Settings > Extras+info
    If it says "Lumia Black" then it is not Cyan.
  • Anybody received in India for L920 ?
  • Yes..update wp 8.1 is ready for Malaysia..i have just updated it
  • crap this!
  • I guess Lumia 620 on 26th August,Lumia 820 on 1st September then later 1week Lumia 525 in India.
  • I got the update in south africa
  • Taking their bloody time releasing cyan on L920. I'm in Australia, and it has been 'under testing' for quite some time. With that said, this is worlds apart from android, which was a complete joke getting updates for it.
  • Ot annoys me greatly that Microsoft update their phones this way. Just be like apple and make the update available around the world for all phones
  • Today my buddy phone Lumia 920 from indonesia got cyan update..
  • Updating, from Malaysia
  • Cortana is missing in the India update
  • No, it isn't. You'll need GDR1 for that.
  • Just did the Cyan + 8.1 update to my Lumia 920. It took a long time to do both updates, it was a bit of a surprise. Not as big a surprise as realizing that I didn't get Cortana, the biggest, flashiest thing that I was expecting to get from this update. Things I like so far: Having access to the remote desktop app. Have yet to try it. Having that extra row of tiles. Separate volume controls for music, apps, etc. Considerably better speech recognition. New keyboard. Still working to figure out all ofther things. Things I don't like so far: The new look of the phone store. The fact that all the videos I had on kid's corner are no longer working on kid's corner The fact I didn't get cortana on this update. The phone gets quite toasty after some mild browsing. I am sure I will find more stuff to dislike :p
  • I pretty much agree with what you said.  I'll add that I dislike what feels like the devolution of the Hubs as a while. Peoples Hub - Can't really do anything without FB app. Message Hub - No integrated FB chat.  Photos/Store Hubs - Removed the panorama  Music/Video Hubs - Splitting of the two.  Album art broken. I've also noticed my phone getting pretty warm doing very little and the battery running down fairly fast.  Hopefully it'll settle though.  As a whole, I think I actually prefer WP8 over 8.1.  
  • What does this update bring
  • Nokia. Web page still says under testing. But my Australia CV is getting notification. I'm still on Black btw.
  • Just received the special update for the Dev Preview folks. However, it is long past time for the Dev Preview fix to roll out. First, I sense it was a small number of people who may have had the unfortunate Bitlocker business. Seemingly, others updated with no issues. Why hold up the whole community or worse yet, asking to roll back?
  • I had am update for DP yesterday.
  • Just updated my 920 in Singapore. Hoooray!
  • Netherlands CV L920 cyan update arrived.
  • I'm in Sri Lanka, Finaly I got WP8.1 update..  now... I'm in cyan update. wow.......

  • What about 620 in India?
  • Slovakia/Czech - installed last night, today enjoying :)
  • Excited to have hands on 8.1.
  • Oh my Good I'm stuck at the gears screen for 15 minutes... On my 920 this is the second time it happens and now I have to go to work without a functioning phone. The progress bar has not moved at all. I swear this is the time I throw this phone out of the window and get frikkin Android...
  • Oh my Gooooood I'm stuck at the gears screen for 15 minutes... On my 920 this is the second time it happens and now I have to go to work without a functioning phone. The progress bar has not moved at all. I swear this is the time I throw this phone out of the window and get frikkin Android...  
  • Hold volume - and power button for 10 sec for a soft reset.
  • Starting a software update on your cellphone 15 minutes before work might not be the brightest idea you have had this month? Just asking.
