    Yes, if you know where to find the firmware, are willing to void your warranty, and are willing to brick your phone.

    Step 10: can be done easier like this =>
    - Lumia is NOT CONNECTED and SWITCHED OFF
    - press "RETRY"
    - NOW connect your switched OFF Lumia via USB
    - press START
    -rebooting and flashing progress starts

    No need for volume button etc. ...been doing it this way several times yet.

    I had the software already installed for a while and downloaded while browsing few forums and sites but do not recall it from where I did that.

    Yup, but I am able to flash RM-877 on an RM-875, in fact before I tried to flash the AT&T rom i was in a Telcel rom which is a RM877 firmware, but is not that big of a deal, I bet black is not far away from release on other networks :D

    As long as Nokia/MS/ATT continue to provide on-time updates like with the Nokia Black/GDR3 then I am not extremely concerned about the block; that said, I am still pissed off about the continued blocking of Data Sense.

    Same. Don't know why AT&T feels so fondly of the Lumia 1020 as compared to the 920, but if they continue to release updates this "fast" (because it's still eternity compared to what iOS users get), then I'll be happy.

    Granted, as you said, the omission of DataSense is still infuriating.

    Sure, most will agree, if att keeps pushing the updates quickly, then there is no need to flash firmwares ... I want to flash something different to get tether working, don't want to pay att extra fee for no reason since I do not have unlimited data plan

    Hello,

    I have the AT&T version of 1020. It also has the Black Update pushed out by AT&T. It is unlocked and I use it on T-Mobile. I used trooter's post to enable tethering: http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...ml#post2232278

    My T-Mobile phone plan has tethering of course.

    Ugh, I hate that!!! It's my data allotment, let me use it how I please!

    Of course, my mom bought my little sister an iPhone 5C for Christmas (I resent that so...). Well, she didn't take me with her (otherwise, I would never have permitted an iPhone, seeing as our resident tech guru). The AT&T people tricked her into getting a Mobile Share plan.

    I must say, being able to now tether my SP2 is such a luxury. It's a new unexplored freedom. Still, we can save about $60-$70 a month by going back to a normal phone plan, so this isn't going to last. Tethering is nice, but money is a precious commodity, and that money can easily be spent on the food or gas bill.

    So I'll enjoy it while it lasts, but AT&T sure as hell ain't tricking us into using one of those outrageously expensive Mobile Share plans...
