    After my problematic install I bit the bullet and did a hard reset.

    All I can say is don't be afraid of hard resetting after GDR3 - it's a breeze! Not only did my install complete properly (with the exception of the ringtones) but you get WiFi connectivity on restart before you get your personal data back and every app is there waiting to be reinstalled.
    Even my colour scheme was saved.

    I had to hard push Amber again using one of the many tools in the store but hey - it worked.
    I'll see if the personal ringtones filter down at the next update.

    Anyone who already have GDR3, is there any difference in Pictures taken after update. Anything, White balance, sharpness or anything else? I read nothing about that, but you never know :)

    nope, nothing changed here on my 920 - still yellow, it was an os update as opposed to firmware, so heres hoping shimmer sorts the cam

    That is a Firmware Related thing (from Nokia/HTC/Samsung => Bittersweet Shimmer) so everything should be the Same!

    The Preview for Developers app is not available in the UK. Is there any other way to get GDR3?
    I'm in the UK and I downloaded it and upgraded to GDR3 just fine. Get it here Preview for Developers | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Is there any changes to other storage with gdr3?
    no
    That's not true, there are some changes worth noting. The 'Other' Category is effectively a non-issue now since the standard phone storage applet provides more categories showing where data is being used, eliminating the need to include an 'Other' category. You can also delete Temporary files or at least, start the background process to remove them.


    E-mail and maps are the new additions but there's also some changes to how the apps category is calculated. Previously, apps would only tell you the total size of all the installations. Now, it also includes any associated data (which presumably would have been included in 'Other').


    Here's a view of my storage in the stock applet and in HTC's Make More Space. Note the difference in the reporting of the size of apps. It looks like the the phone storage takes into account other data the apps use and store.

    I see some changes but not the ones many are looking for. Sure its more detailed where that other storage is but its still there! We were loosing phone storage and we knew it was going somewhere( other storage) . What we want is to NOT lose that phone storage or a way to clear it .there was always a temporary file clean up but it never touched that other storage ok gdr3 kinda shows us a bit more detailed but like me im on about 10 GB of other I just want it gone not just for gdr3 to just spread it around to "look" like its fixed it gone!

    Overally GDR3 feels like a great update. I like new features and I think I like the X even more than I would like a swiping gesture for closing an app. Can't wait for official Bittersweet update to be released with all the present issues fixed.

    still yellow
    You realize that's just for the low-res view-on-the-phone preview, right? If you upload the pic to SkyDrive or something else, they won't be yellow.

    Anyone tested the update with a 1020 ATT? I'm afraid to get it with the 1020 cause no one has commented about getting the update with the 1020.

    i will double check tomorrow and take some more in the light, but am pretty sure its got a yellow tinge even when i look at my full res skydrive uploads, it might just be that i am coming from an nokia 808, and have only had the 920 about 4 days, so need to adjust....

    but when i take the shot it freezes it momentarily, and it looks great, sharp and neutral toned, then the preview kicks in of the processed file and you can instantly see the softening and the yellow cast on the photo compared to the instant it took the image, i appreciate that previews arent anything to go off, but have you not seen the "Lumia 920 camera bug after Amber update" thread on here with pics people have been uploading comparing them, namely #153 - this isnt to do with low res previews

    You realize that's just for the low-res view-on-the-phone preview, right? If you upload the pic to SkyDrive or something else, they won't be yellow.

    Around 35-40MB for my Lumia 720. May vary for other models.
    And it was just for GDR3, everything else was updated.

    I've updated to GDR3. I need some clarity regarding how far the custom tones work. Can you add a custom tone for toast notifications from apps? Can customs tones be set separately for each app like in the case of contacts?

    Not as of right now. Developers can now have a different notification sound for their app. You don't have control over that though.
