This may seem a daft question as the model is exclusive to O2 but is there an unbranded UK country variant firmware available for the 64GB 1020?
Just a bit concerned that when O2 give me the unlock code, I could be stuck with their branded firmware.

All firmware will work, regardless of color and memory size. Only requirement is that you stay within your device sub-family (rm-875, rm-876 or rm-877) otherwise you run into issues with radio bands etc

Was away for most of the weekend but I have just got round to giving this a go and I'm pleased to report that it worked.
I downloaded the country variant 1020 firmware for the yellow model for the RM-875 subfamily. I had to get hold of a more recent version of NCS than I had but it worked first time. There was a couple of heart in mouth moments as the reboot seemed to take an age and it went to a black screen for a few seconds but it all worked out ok.
Thanks for the help Wiz..I owe you a pint mate!

Couple of downsides so far....
There are 24 downloads showing in the store with 'Attention required. Tap here.'. I take it these are apps that are no longer published so I'm going to have to compare the app lists on my 920 and 1020 to see what exactly is missing and find suitable replacements.
Also, my high res photos are no longer available in the gallery. Before flashing, I backed up my photos and copied them all back to the phone after flashing but there's no option to view images in ProCam anymore which is a huge disappointment.
I'm also tying to work out which accent colour looks best with the yellow 1020. Not a problem as such, it's down to personal preference. Yellow seems to go well but some tiles, especially email don't read too well with white text. Amber seems a little dull. The red contrasts well with the yellow body and works well with the black display but I'm not a huge fan of red....

You will need to download the latest available version of Nokia Care Suite and get hold of the firmware you want to flash.

First, download your required RM-877 firmware with navifirm. Place it in the required folder. Then start Nokia Care Suite -> Product Support Tool for Store 5.0 -> File -> Open Product -> RM-877 (Nokia Lumia 1020) -> Programming -> Recovery. The RM-877 firmware details should appear in the window. Click start.
Follow the phone directions.
That should do it....
Is your 1020 unlocked for use on other networks?

I have AT&T Nokia Lumia 1020 RM-877. Can't install Rogers firmware (RM-877); followed the instructions, got the cogwheel, got the nokia logo and still nothing (same error message as above). It seems that the North American versions are messed up. We got shafted again, i'm afraid. Well, this will be my last Nokia ...

This is a problem, because Nick 1020 has RM-875 and he can change his firmware, and we hav RM-877 and can't do it. :/
its a problem but maybe with software, some kind of block or something, because there is 3 types of lumia 1020
RM-877 North America (Band 4)
i dont know why with RM-877 its the problem :/
