    Is there a way to enable my lumia to get the latest updates directly from Nokia and bypass Rogers completely?

    I was able to force the update today for my Rogers Lumia 900. Here's how I did it, based largely on readings here at wpcentral:

    1) put phone on airplane mode -- WiFi and cellular data disabled
    2) disable WiFi on PC/laptop
    3) connect to PC/laptop via ethernet cable
    4) connect to Zune, allow connection to phone
    5) click on "Phone", then "Settings"
    6) click on "Update", and about 1 second after the search for update starts yank out ethernet cable
    7) phone displays that update is available if you have timed it right (I assumed it would be the PC informing you but it was the phone itself)
    8) reconnect ethernet cable to PC/laptop
    9) perform Zune "Update" again and you'll see the update to 8112
    10) follow the 10 step on-screen update process for 8112
    11) the last step of 8112 update is a scan for further updates which will find 8773
    12) follow the 9 step on-screen update process for 8773 (you don't have to "force" this update)
    13) you're done -- the whole process probably takes 50-55 minutes

    Hope it helps. Happy updating to those who don't want to wait for the natural roll-out to reach them.

    Well I got it on the first try but when I pressed update the 2nd time it went sour and I can't get back there again. So close : (

    Try again from start. After plugging the ethernet cable back in just click any other menu item then click "Update" again. Good luck.

    It keeps giving me the "Can't check for updates right now. Please try again later" message.

    What if your phone already has 8112?

    I assume this is after you did the initial check, yanked the connection, and tried to reconnect (ie. after steps 6,7 and during 8 above)? I got that message when I didn't give the connection time to re-establish before trying again to "Update".

    I checked, it's 8107.

    Yep, that is after I yanked the connection and tried a reconnect. I'll try again after giving it time to re-establish.

    Tango should be out for Rogers already.. shouldn't it? I got mine last Thursday.

    Just give it a bit more time.. they might be rolling it out to people in waves for whatever reason.

    Success! Managed to get it to update but it did not find the 8773 update so 8112 only for now. Thanks for the help.

    Got the update working using that method earlier this morning!

    Noticeable things:

    - Purple Hue STILL a problem
    - No visual changes
    - Waste of time

    This is NOT Tango. This is just a minor update. :)

    I updated a few hours ago to 8773. The purple hue seems to be gone for me, and the screen is noticably brighter. I will update if this doesn't continue through the day tomorrow.

    And I got my hundred dollars from Rogers today (I bought outright) so it has been a great Lumia day.

    How did you get the $100 back? Rogers was totally adamant about not giving me any money back if I bought outright..

    I just Tweeted them and got it. Really the long delay is my fault because of an insane work schedule. Regardless I just said I should get it because I didn't return it, and they agreed.

    Further information am declaring my keyboard colouring fixed :)

    This never fixed the purple hue for me. That can't be fixed with an OS update. It needs a firmware update.

    Yeah, I just tried that with their Twitter account too and they said that they don't know how you got your $100 back :/

    I am new to this but i fixed my purple hue by putting screen brightness to high instead of auto.....I know you probably knew about this but it is a nice short term fix.

    Putting it on medium will fix it too.
