Unlocked Nokia Lumia 930 picks up minor firmware update
For those using the new Nokia Lumia 930, you may want to check to see if you have an update waiting. Of course it is not Lumia Cyan, as the Lumia 930 comes with that already on board, but it is an update to it, likely fixing and improving various aspects of the hardware.
Version xxxxx.xxxx.14252.51003 of the firmware is the latest version, up from the previous 51002 build.
If, however, you are looking for a detailed changelog, you will be sorely disappointed. Then again, this most likely some minor improvements to some facets of the phone's hardware, including the display, buttons or telephony functions. Besides our review unit, another person in our forums also has an update, which wasn't available yesterday.
To check to see if you have an update, head into Settings > Phone update > Check for update to force it. Since this update is firmware, the download size should be relatively small. Not all Lumia 930s are eligible for the update, as it firmware is dependent upon the device's region (determined by previous firmware) and carrier deployment, if applicable.
If you want to learn more about the Lumia 930 or have questions, please jump into our Lumia 930 forums to discuss this update or anything else.

By the way, sunlight visibility improver sucks on mine (over-saturated colors), is it on purpose?
And... I know it's not the right place for questions, but if you're using 4G, does your 930 switch to 2.5G when in a call as well, instead of 3.xG? Anyone?
Of just update it?
Don't want to setup the 930 again..
001 NL now, but I downloaded the 003 UK rom.
Never go full retard
2. Updates every day of the week
Also my normally excellent Audible app is cocking up. It syncs to a certain point in my book then won't play,pause,skip etc. Have uninstalled reinstalled and factory reset the phone. It's ruining new phone week for me.
I have the 001 firmware, but I have the full rom with 003 firmware.
Ready to flash, but don't want to setup the phone again. Thanx!! Holland CV-NL 930.
But u mean by restore after flash, the phone is completely clean and reset to stock.. So new setup is required?
