Windows Phone 8.1 Update 14157 rolling out to Preview for Developers users
Microsoft has released a new update to the Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 for smartphone owners who have installed the Developer Preview version of the OS, bringing the version number up to 8.10.14157.200.
Exactly what this new download is for is currently unknown. From the size of the download, and the fact that Microsoft didn't offer an advanced heads up that this update would be released, it looks like it is mainly for performance improvements and bug fixes. If you see any specific improvements that might be worth noting, please let us know.
One thing the update apparently won't do is fix the "0x80188308" error that some users have seen when installing the Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 Developer Preview. In a post on Microsoft's Answers support forum (opens in new tab), a company rep stated:
Thanks to the many folks who tipped us along with all of the posts from readers in our forums!

Edit: Had to enable preview for developers again.. Ma bad. Downloading...
Nevertheless, I'm in Irving right now... Lol!
As download begins, turn on Wi-Fi. Don't ask me why, but that's the only way I can kickstart the process on my 1020.
Anyways, there's this issue with the audio volume on my BT earpiece where call, and notification volume is fine, but music volumes are extremely low, and can't be adjusted higher... I think this actually changed on my 1520 after the official Cyan update.. I hope this fixes that because I wanna jam out at work without anyone knowing...
Edit: nevermind haha, forgot which article I was on.
but since some updates, that I don't know since when, no issues with freezing up till now. Well, just wondering, is anyone else experiencing camera issues ? Whenever I set my camera to 5MP + 38MP DNG mode, it freezes and my camera shutter is wide open and I can't use my camera, in which ever app. To fix it, I'll have to reboot my phone then it works.
Don't know if you did see my reply on engaged but it might have something to do with an app installed that has a bug. Many people are complaining about clokhub being the issue. I provided you a link to that thread.... Anyway good to see you on wpc because it is the best source of information for everything related to Windows phone. I recommend downloading their app for your phone Regards
* Music - even XBox Music subscription files are NOT part of the data update. Write down what you want to REdownload
* Games - progress will not be saved in most instances.
* Apps - they will reinstall, but you have to do the setup from scratch in a lot of cases like relogging in and losing data. Waze, for instance, did NOT keep my favorite addresses or recent addresses.
* Apps - if there are any that have since been pulled, you won't get them back. I lost a 3rd party OKCupid app that was apparently pulled.
* Apps - lots of apps will give themselved permission to run in the background. When originally installing, I would check them at I installed them. You'll now have to do into Battery Saver and deactivate the ones that you don't want running in the background.
* Accounts - the accounts are not saved in the backup, so you have to go into Settings and set those up. It's not "technically" difficult, but it is a pain in the butt. If you revert back to 8.0 don't let it auto-restore. Don't let it auto-restore after you update to 8.1/Cyan either. I installed the Dev Preview and did NOT auto-restore until after I did a hard reset AFTER that last upgrade. It was already a pain and a chunk of time, so I figured I'd do whatever I could think of to make sure that it went well. :) The "up and running" time will also vary by how much data needs to be restored and how many apps need to reinstall.
I tried to back up but always give me an error message on my settings around 97%. Is it only me or it happened to somebody else??
Backup settings messages etc.
Flash your phone to either 8.0 or 8.1 cyan. Do not restore your backup yet. Install PFD app then upgrad to gdr1. Reset your phone then you'll be asked of your microsoft account. Next you'll be asked to start new or restore backup. Tap on restore. You'll find your previous start screen but with grayed tiles. This tiles need to be installed so just let the phone do its thing. You will lose game progress however.
Totally loving it
where exactly does my phone want me to go ?
Hope it fix my cracked screen :9
I have had a bad experience(4th as of now) every time with this update, first, installed it without cyan took 50+ minutes, additional language pack to enable cortana took 50-60 minutes.
then on cyan arrival downgraded to amber, then after installing cyan, again installed update 1, took another 50+ minutes, afterwards my phone started behaving superslow, so I downgraded again and kept upto cyan until today morning, when I thought to give it another chance,...but was disappointed again by waiting on spinning cogs for around an hour, and now comes this update which I thought would relieve my pain..but again the condition is same..
anyone else facing issues with 512mb devices..or am I alone... many of you will say throw this and buy a better Lumia...but I am waiting for a dual sim lumia with 1gigs of RAM to replace this..
So go for 720 the lighter n best battery life
So my friends dont wait just follow this and u will be really enjoying lumia
Why don't Microsoft sort out these silly little niggles (great ideas, poorly implemented...).
Speaking of which, I hope they provide some structure to the settings menu. It's a load of rubbish in comparison to Android/iOS
Microsoft, keep sleeping in tired of you.
As updated on Windows 8.1
Now I can highlight on OneNote (in format), does what the case previously?!
The start screen is also much more fluid.
Nice little update :)
The update process is pretty strange on my phone.. Downloaded the update, phone asked restart to apply changes. I accepted. Phone restart and spinning gears appear. After a while, my phone itself off..
Scary.. no restart, no sign of life..
Manually started my phone and "Almost done.." loading screen appeared and finnaly got "Success" message. Not sure why i had to restart manually my phone during the procress..
Don't install it
Accidentally booted it during data migration
Now Start still lags a lil and WPCentral app passport and news feed is broken giving me Network errors.
I rebooted a few times and tried uninstall-reinstall but app still bugged. Will I have to hard reset again? :|
MS caught redhanded. And the worst thing is that they wont address these small issues and thats why WP doesn't grow.
I'm unable to make calls because of this.. No internet.. I dont know how am I suppose to rollback
....and it will be worth the wait. (after 30 minutes) still waiting...
Hopefully MS will improve more on the keyboard design and Chinese language input prediction.
The NTP feature of WP8.1 Update 1 does not work when a SIM card is in place. 4.The search button (right lower part of my screen) still reacts to a touch much to fast, I am always sent to bing/cortana because I touch that button unintentionally. 5.I still cannot print office files, pdf files, e-mails, etc to a WiFi printer from within WP. The annoyances above are the reason(s) why I would not buy MS/WP/Nokia phones anymore.
With NO support on both HTC 8s & 8x...
If this is not going to be fixed with cyan or the next update i will be forced from MS and Nokia unprofessional behavior on fixing major issues to to upgrade to an iphone 5s or maybe the iphone 6 if it will be released!
I have replaced 3 L920 so i dont thing the issue is hardware related!And i m waiting for a fix almost two years!!!
Reinstalling and enabling Preview For Developers did not solve.
Could it be device (CV-DE) or region (NL) related?
This look like the buttons react to the lights, in system setting i try to working out but without final set up... I try to turn off the battery saver etc. Please help me
