    Hello guys I have a L520 with DP. I want to install Lumia Cyan but I would like to be able to restore all the device's content after downgrading to WP8. What should I do after installing WP8 using Nokia software recovery tool

    1) Plug in your phone into a PC / MAC whatever you use and copy all the directories on the phone into a back up folder
    2) Go to settings -> back up (under find my phone) -> turn on text message back up (if off)-> app+settings -> back up now and wait till it is finished
    3) Go to email + accounts and sync the accounts you want (if you have contacts saved on different accounts other than your MS account - as contacts, calendar & tasks automatically sync for your MS account)
    4) You will not be able to back up Apps, as they re-install directly from the store

    Once you have downgraded to Cyan and if you were on update 1, previously do not restore instead:
    1) Re-enrol
    2) Update to GDR1
    3) Do a hard reset
    4) Restore

    Also you will lose app and game data from games / app that do not utilise OneDrive for cloud saves along with any discontinued apps that were on your phones previously.
