    Oh, it IS Cortana!

    Change your language, speech and region to US. Then check for updates in Phone update. After that, Cortana will appear as an app in the app list (still WON'T appear pressing the search button).

    Nop you dont need to hard reset, just change all to USA and restart your phone from "Restart your Phone" in settings under whatever thing it was.

    After you open Cortana it needs setup, Choose to install English (US) and it will restart , After that i was able to open cortana (right now testing it) Note: Needs Location on for Results.

    Good news, got a fix :
    Set your language and region and speech to us-english.
    Then go check the updates. There is one (it's the language update :) ). Install it. Enjoy Cortana

    EDIT : seems to NOT work. Sorry

    EDIT2 : it works. BUT in order to make it work, you need to launch it the first time from the app (not the search button).
    A Hard reset seems to work too
    Let's see how many edit I'll do^^

    After setting Region to USA you still don't have Cortana, make sure that in Settings -> Language, English (US) is moved at the top (Press and Hold, then select Move Up)!

    Cortana is working outside USA - if you were set to USA before update - you will need to hard reset, change region to USA and phone language to USA.
