Lumia Denim update hits the Lumia 520 and Lumia 525 in India

Windows Phone users in China and certain countries in Europe have started receiving the Lumia Denim update yesterday, and now it is time for Indian users to join in. The update is currently being rolled out to the Lumia 520 and Lumia 525 in the country.

Microsoft's support site (opens in new tab) still lists the latest available firmware as Cyan, so it is likely that the update is just starting to roll out. If you didn't get the OTA update, we suggest heading into your device's settings to manually check if one is available. If you're not sure as to how to proceed, follow along with Microsoft's video:

Thanks for the tips everyone!

  • When will Lumia 630 will get update.
  • Exaclty what about Lumia 630
  • Harish did you wake up now? Cuz you're late in this article ;)
  • Was making sure it was actually rolling out before writing about it.
  • Still no update for L520
  • Change your region and language to India and Indian English , instead to locked with Cortana and try . It's just a suggestion not tried bcoz my name says I am different user 1320
  • The language & region are set to India only. Cortana is also disabled.
  • Thanks forgot that @Abhishek1320
  • I'm on L525. Didn't receive an update. What's wrong?
  • I think dev preview users won't have update at this point of time.
  • Yea..Even I think so..!!
  • as you say I have done region and language to india and indian english, Now what I ? tell me........
  • Are you on developer preview ?? Which device u use ?
  • Neither for L525 on Vodafone IN
  • Oh okay. Which phone do you have by the way?
  • you're the Nightcrawler at WC.
  • LOL But someone needs too..!!
  • do l525 getting update, bcas im not receiving any update
  • hey I am also a 525 user in India
    the official site says that the update is not for Lumia 525 users in India right now.
  • Update is for non-preview for dev users.
  • Now available for 720. Just updated my extra + info
  • The official page has been updated: http://www.microsoft.com/en/mobile/support/software-update/wp8-software-...
  • I want to know why 520 received update and why not 630
    And when will 630 get updated
  • No clue as to when the 630 will get it, but it should not be too long.
  • Is it for the pfd also?? ... Please reply.. I'm running pfd on L525
  • Caz there are lots of 520 devices out their than any other wp's
  • 520 deserves to be updated before 630 :)
  • Bitch Think Of Your Own Phone :)
  • Be cool kids.. It will come soon.. Don't fight..
  • BTW, I'm now an adult :')
  • Ok i am saying to banerjee
    ..
  • News Flash: @Mrun4nk is my neighbour, so chillax. I did it purposely. (Sandeep Sunny)
  • Change your handset first. WP 7 is no longer supported.
  • i Think So that there is no official denim arrives for lumia 520  
  • How about those in Africa?? Nigeria to be specific, any news?
  • I recommend u to change ya product code to China or India. They get update first
  • That can't happen..If that was the case Microsoft would only release updates for US only and ask the rest of us to change our regions and do the same..!!
  • Lumia 925. Still waiting for denim. I'm in Tunisia (north-Africa). Normally we will be the update along with Europe.
  • Not sure you'll get any updates even after changing regions sire esp for country variant devices not locked to any network. My advice is...just chill.
    Lumia 925 user from Nigeria.
  • Hi fellow Nigerian!
  • its working in Africa...just updated my L520 in kenya.
  • Yeah..finally updated my Lumia 520 to Denim..It took around close to 250 MB..Super duper happy..:)
  • What are the new features?
  • Here are my findings after I installed Denim on my 520 : 1. Cortana is seen. 2. You get to add Mobile Data on notification widget. 3. You can install further updates as per the timing you specify. 4. Live folders..Drag and drop live tile and tie them under a specific folder.
  • Which means nothing new fr PFD users??
  • Yeah. I thought PFD users are the ones can receive it first.. Zzz
  • You received first. This update (Denim + 8.1.1) it's for normal users get what you got before them.
  • M afraid, but it looks like the same 
    :'(  
  • So nothing new from pfd *sigh*... Guess the update can wait then
  • Is there a USB option under settings??Please confirm.
  • USB,,AUDIO EQUALIZER and BRIGHTNESS PROFILE have been removed from the L5xx series deliberately by Microsoft..!!
  • I hope they don't do the same with 6xx devices.
  • Audio equalizer was never there in my 520.
  • Audio equalizer is found in L535!
  • Yours came later..
  • update of facebook is there????? the facebook whic was in our windows 8...
  • What..??
  • What about the camera? They said it would have hdr built in
  • Is cortana working.. ?? I dont find mine working .
  • Lots of) folders, cell data switcher, faster camera, improved performance
  • 250mb ??
  • 194 MB
  • My WIfi connection showed 250 MB data used for installing the update..:)
  • Can you specify the firmware revision & os version no. I think there's no change in firmware no. from that of cyan
  • Okay here are the details after denim update : LUMIA DENIM  Firmware Update Notifier 1.2.0.5 Glance PinBoards App Agent 1.3.1.7 Lumia First User Experience 1.10.0.4 Lumia Share 2.5.1.0 Rate Us 2.6.0.3 Silent Installer 1.6.0.6 SIM Unlock 1.0.0.5 SMS vCard Receiver 1.2.1.7 SpamFilter 1.9.3.1 Core build ID 3058.50000.1425.10479 Application Version 3.12.0.3
  • OS version: 8.10.14219.341 Firmware revision number : 3058.50000.1425.0001 Hardware revision number : 1.5.0.1
  • So its same as of cyan. There is no firmware update i think. Just an OS Update. Now can you access Lumia Camera 5.0 Its an exclusive firmware feature
  • you are on cyan plz update  
  • Yes iam on cyan. iam having L620 Can you tell the firmware revision of Denim Nd u have accesss for Lumia Camera 5.0
  • I have the same details in PFD! Everything same
  • Ye sure you updated..?? Cause it's the same for me in Cyan..Am seeing no updates in PFD..!! And if ye switch off the PFD you will surely see Lumia Denim in Extras+Info even if ye haven't updated to Lumia Denim..I have the same..!!
  • Does it fixed the battery big ... Now a days my battery is sucking
  • Who said money can't buy happines. Buy a Lumia and see for yourself.
  • Only fools say money cant buy happiness, it do sometimes....
  • All these, I got frm PFD only. Can you check if the camera is any better? That's one of the big things about denim
  • Yup same here. But the camera won't get any better. That's only for the PureView cameras!
  • Current Lumia Camera app is not optimized for Denim, there will be an specific update for Denim.
  • hey bro can you tell me how much time did it taken to install? actully what happen with me is     i downloaded correctly after reboot it just show installation icon not further proggress was being done i had waited till 1 hour but nothing happen lastaly i did hard reset.   so can you help me?
  • Did u need to install all the apps again?
    And how much time i took?
    I have 222 apps installed at the moment.
  • Nopes..!! And did ye count all of your apps..??
  • Yep, i count them to brag among my friends. That was easy btw counting with 10+ method
  • I beat you ;-) Got 411 apps in my Lumia 920 :-D   It served two purposes. One is to get the bragging rights about how fluid my Lumia is even after installing 400+ apps. A less important purpose is that most of my friends/relatives/colleagues kept on asking me whether windows phone has many apps. I would just show them the number of apps I installed to let them understand that Windows Phone does have many apps.
  • Great.. Same here.. My all friends envy me seeing the fluidness even after this no of apps..
    However i am installing almost 1 app a day on avg with the help of 'myappfree' and 'app for you in store' so i am gonna join you in 400+ club very soon..
    But it might not be possible as i have lumia 520 that has limitations of its own... So lets c++
  • Is "hey cortana" accessible?
  • Hey Cortana is to be made available only for snapdragon 800+, so don't think it's wise to expect it on the L500s or even the 600s for that matter
  • Not the 7xx and 8xx either..!!
  • Zzzz. So sad.. +1320
  • Only to devices having Snapdragon 800 and above..!!
  • That's only for 930 and 1520
  • ICON,,Ativ V and M8 too..!!
  • It's reserved for Lumia devices in GDR1.
  • Snapdragon 8xx processor only on 1520.
  • Where did you get the update i mean from which area you belong..???
  • India..Delhi..520..Still didn't get it..!!
  • Hurray!!
  • Harish, I was about to tip this..:D
  • Checking for updates in my Lumia 520
  • Nokia Lumia 520 for UK must me next then! Finally!
  • Fuck why not 925
  • Rahul, thats because they wana test how smooth the update rolls out for lower end device. If all goes well, the update would be roll-out for higher devices in no time..Have patience buddy.!
  • But still you know naa how slow they are...
  • Rahul be glad that they are doing this intentionaly..Because you don't wana mess up 925 after an update,, Not comparing though..but you know the issues faced for android phones after Lollipop and For IPhones after 8.0 version was out.. I hope you got my feelings..:D
  • Yeah i know....
  • Someone tell them to just post the update....i was the first one to enjoy the cyan update why cantbi be the first one to enjoy this one...
  • I feel your pain bro
  • Coz more people use it
  • I feel you bro checked for update like 5 times already :(
  • It's not like they are testing it on the low-enders..The update is optimized differently for every device..It's just that the L525,,L625 and L925 are a lil different than others (yea sounds weird but it's true)..!! And also they wanted to cover maximum number of folks at once so the low-enders cause the sell the most..!! Last time L925 got it first and L520 at the last and if the opposite happens....It will make us even..!!
  • Yey.. Downloaded the update.. I m very happy ^^
  • +520 :)
  • Are you facing slight lag while sliding the volume controls? Cause I'm feeling, anyone confirm?
  • Not really..
  • They should've rolled out the Denim updates for the Lumia 600 range too like they did in china. Am using a Lumia 625,any idea as to when we might get the update?
  • Lumia 1520 ????
  • 830, 930 and 1520 will be the last of the  (Phase 2) as they have additional firmware tweaks for new features like 'hey cortana' , miracast next version, and most importantly the latest and greatest Lumia camera....patence is a virtue and I am jealous of u as my 1020 (maging flagship) will be never getting the lumia camera upgrades....its part of this phase itself (o2 in germany has already pushed the update)
  • No hey Cortana for the 830
  • Only Snapdragon 800 (Lumia 1520 and Lumia 930/Icon) will support Hey Cortana.
  • 620??????
  • Not yet dude. We should wait
  • Should not be a long wait though.
  • Hope so

  • I think our model (620) was last to receive cyan
  • What's new in Denim? For 520 that is.
  • The Denim update isn't device specific. It's a firmware update from Cyan. Your Live folders feature is from Denim. You should also see a battery improvement of your device..!
  • Lot of new things Rohith.. Here are my findings after I installed Denim on my 520 : 1. Cortana is seen. 2. You get to add Mobile Data on notification widget. 3. You can install further updates as per the timing you specify. 4. Live folders..Drag and drop live tile and tie them under a specific folder.  
  • You would have all the of the above features already on your phone if you were rolled into DP. :)
  • True that..But I am not into DP as of now ..:D
  • Are you facing slight lag while sliding the volume controls especially for ringer?
  • No way..The volume controls are working fine..No problem faced untill now..:D
  • Can you confirm u have Lumia Camera 5.0
  • 4.9.2.1.
  • So no Firmware Update. Did u check for updates for Lumia Camera
  • So nothing new for ppl who have DP installed
  • You officially have those features now..!!
  • What about usb option under setting??
  • Added live folders without installing special app.
    Also camera works better and launches faster
  • Oh fuck! Yipee... Finally lower end devices has got it first! But anyone know the size of update? I only have 500 MB remain.. Is it sufficient?
  • Definitely not sufficient...to update the device around 1.2-1.5gb free space is necessary(if I'm not wrong)
  • The update download size is around 250-300mb. However as recommended by Microsoft, it's best to have a free space of atleast 1GB on your phone memory to install the update.
  • No u need at lest 1 gb...
  • Ha bhai ho jayega...
  • I have L520 but it is showing up to date
  • Gingerbread > Denim.
  • Your comment is as boring as your name!! Go get your ass in android central they will let you get inside with open hands!
  • Wasn't meant to excite. It was meant to educate. Ergo, the perceived boringness of the comment is irrelevant.
  • Windows Phone Rocks......Android sucks
  • Windows 98 > FlavourlessLollipops
  • Don't feed the TROLL.
  • Android Sucks, suffering End of its age I would say. And Win Phone has not started its never ending journey. A lot More to come :D Your android might have 100 things in it, but ask yourself how stable these fuctions are? 100 % Unsecure OS (Its been proved), 99% Unreliable functions. I sold my Note 2 and switched to this sexy smart lumia 1520. and With all proud I say "THIS IS THE BEST CHOICE I HAVE MADE SO FAR"..  
  • Windows Phone 7 > ICS
  • Kim kardashian/Justin bieber>Android
  • I would rather use Denim (hip, trendy, tough and long lasting)....than wear Gingerbread.....
  • Windows phone 7> kitkat
  • Droidboy, stay away. Smoke some joints & lick lollipop :D
  • Windows 3.1 > "Ass"Droid Lollipop
  • As of writing this, no update is available for my 525 (India).
  • Yes my 525 showing uptodate
  • Yes I has also this problem
  • Keep waiting guys, its rolling out. Will reach us soon today
  • My l525 also showing up to date.
  • Yup... Unavailable for my Lumia 525 too...
  • My L520 showing an update..
  • Not for L520 too..!!
  • I have pfd my phone is showing up to date
  • No update for pfd.
    Cause u already got 8.1.1
  • But we will the firmware update though
  • I think no. its the same firmware no as of cyan is showing even after denim update So pfd users are uptodate amd non-pfd users will get the update i think
  • Shut the fuck up you retarded fuck. First, your comment makes me want to blow your head off... God the incoherence. Second, you have no idea what you're talking about.
  • Behave Yourself. I know what iam talking. Check your Firmware Revision no. It will be 3058.50000.1425.0001 Its same as of Lumia Cyan. There is no firmware Update. Thats why PFD users are not getting the update. Its just the OS Build 14219 Have You got Lumia Camera 5.0 ? Just tell that Just shut up and dont shout at others if you u dont know about something
  • The firmware revision number remains the same? I see. But we do need a firmware update to make the OS even better.
  • Of Course u need firmware update. Its the exclusive features added to the OS by the Model Company,  Eg: Nokia, Samsung, HTC For Eg- Lumia Camera 5.0 is an exlusive feature which comes with Denim update to all models. Hey Cortana in 930, 1520 etc. These are added by firmware (here by NOKIA/MS)  & not by OS Updates. Can you access to Lumia Camera 5.0
  • No one's got the Lumia Camera 5.0
  • Get your facts right there..Denim doesn't/can't come through PFD..!!
  • Damn gaurav shut your smelly hole up and calm down. Hate when they let kids on here.
  • And you are a dumbfuck.
  • Gaurav buddy requesting you to please watch ur language on this thread. Talk tech, not trash....
    Merry Christmas!
  • Calm down bro..We Indians shouldn't do this..!! Chillax bro
  • Wait for sometime, you'll get it
  • Started to roll out yesterday only!
  • What about lumia 530?Any ideas about that?
  • Nope. Tried it on my mom's 530. No update.
  • My update (520, India) failed thrice.... 80070057...
  • Maybe show internet?
  • Time and date correct kar ke restart karo
  • Check your date and time, internet connection and then do a soft reset.
  • Finally I have Denim! I just cleared some more space :D
  • Anything new for the camera? Faster to launch perhaps? Anybody?
  • On my 520, it took longer to launch, but photos were better. The stock camera was lagging while moving around, not smooth. Lumia Camera was fine.
  • Lumia 520 DP still didn't get the firmware update in india
  • Try to turn pfd off
  • Same for me :( unchecked the pfd. Still no updates :(
  • PFD Users are up to date. No update in firmware. Its the same firmware revison as of cyan But the update takes you to latest build of PFD 14219 even if you are a Non-pfd user
