    Can WPC shed any light on the the PFD situation? It did champion it. Us people are getting left behind, and we are the "enthusiasts" who took it up! Badger ms.. Speak to them..doing something..the silence is deafening.

    Sadly, no idea. Maybe they'll combine it with Denim just so they have any issues worked out, but that's just a guess until its released or announced.

    No, the point is to let everybody beta test some future features of the OS before everybody else. The whole Cyan thing happened because some users phones mistakenly locked up, so Microsoft put a pause on it until it's fixed. With then pushing out Cyan updates and working in their next firmware update, it's pretty safe to assume those of us who don't want to use the Nokia Recovery Tool are waiting for Denim.

    Sorry, but that's just how I see it, which again... What does Cyan add? Didn't seem like much, honestly.

    The Cyan thing happened because some users installed the preview software onto their enterprise-encrypted devices - to my mind, this is a pretty foolhardy thing to do as you don't know how corporate EAS/policy will interact with preview software.

    The problem is that Microsoft update servers don't know whether each phone is encrypted, so the only way to prevent bricked devices is to halt the update for everyone until it can be corrected - obviously, this hasn't been an easy fix. There's been a pilot fix deployed for some handsets for some carriers/regions. I had word yesterday that the DfP Cyan update will be resumes "shortly", although I don't have any more definite timescales than that.

    As mentioned above, the Cyan firmware isn't a huge update, and won't do much to improve your life with your phone (Nokia push it so hard because they bundle firmware updates with major OS updates).

    Developers aren't being left behind, we already have GDR1 after all, and GDR2 is on the way sometime soon.
