    torbach1: May I ask little OT - you was able to flash unbranded LTA firmware into AT&T lumia 1020? Did you find any restrictions (except not available cyan update) like bloatware, missing menus, sites support, less languages to choose...? Thank you.

    Yes. I have an unlocked ATT and now on Rogers network in Canada. I just downloaded the update.

    Ok, Im confused. I have an AT&T phone, but its unlocked. Will I get the official update when released?

    He bought a retail phone and wants the official update. Completely unrelated to your rant...

    Umm... My "rant" was spot on topic of the OP. Bought a phone and thinks Microsoft will not update an unlocked retail phone. Its bologna I say! No one wants to wait. The 1020 just today got an update in the US. The unlocked ones are right behind I'm sure.

    Hi Mr. Kaja:
    I didn't flash unbranded rom into my 1020. My 1020 was originally the network unlocked, non-carrier specific version that MS was selling directly. In 8.0 mode, I couldn't they either LTE, or Network Sharing to work despite his on the phone with Microsoft, AT&T, and Nokia. I then tried upgrading it to 8.1. That didn't fix the LTE/Network sharing issue, and it broke video capabilities. I was then unable to get it back to 8.0, because Nokia did not have the unbranded rom for the 1020 on their servers. So in order to solve both problems, I flashed it with the Roger's 1020 rom.
    That sorted out everything. The LTE on At&t's network worked immediately, as did network sharing.

    The day that the official Rogers cyan and 8.1 update came out, my phone was updated.

    Apparently the Roger's rom is penta band, and supports more frequencies. Either way, it sorted out my issues, and I'm happy with the phone now, ruining on AT&T, and will use a Rogers sim when I travel to Canada.

    Well, its being blocked if you're in the Developer Preview... You either need to wait until MS updates it with a fix for Bitlocker or downgrade to 8.0 and then install it OTA from the carrier.

    Edit: I actually explained that to you in your thread about how to get 8.1. ;)

    Yes. Got it. But I think I'm held back by telus. They do not have their update yet. But my phone is working fine. I need cyan for smartwatch and fitbit capabilities.

    I think the only country variant left without update is the US one sold my Microsoft...
    And still the Nokia page which has the update list shows no sign of it.

    Hi Everyone:

    Thanks to some advice from blue1k, I used the Nokia Care Suite to change the ROM on my unlocked Lumia 1020 which I purchased trom the Microsoftstore.com after reading the article on this site about the pricing. PLEASE NOTE, ANY ADVICE FOLLOWED HERE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. THIS WORKED FOR ME, BUT IT MAY BRICK YOUR PHONE, OR CAUSE OTHER PROBLEMS, AND MAY VOID YOUR WARRANTY.

    The steps were:
    1. Download the Nokia Care Suite (can't remember where I found it, but I believe it was a search on this forum).
    2. Search on YouTube for a video of using the Nokia Care Suite to flash a Lumia device. Basically, once you've installed it, you run the Data Package Manager and login with blank username and pwd. In there, you enter the product type RM-877, but for the product code, use the Rogers one - 059T1V9, and select search.
    3. Once it finds it, download that ROM.
    4. Once the download is completely close the Data Package Manager, and Open the Product Support Tool for Store 5. Again sign in using empty username and password.
    5. With your phone still disconnected, in the Product Support Tool, select File/Open Product, and then filter to RM-877, then select that, which should say (Lumia 1020), and select 'Open'.
    6. On the bottom left, select Programming/Recovery. This will load the ROM you downloaded.Ignore the error.
    7. Without plugging in your phone, select Start. This will get you to the Recovery screen, where it will assume your phone is not bootable.
    8. Turn your phone off, and then plug it in, and follow the instructions to soft reset the phone in the Recovery screen, and immediately after you feel the phone vibrating for the soft reset, select 'Retry'.

    This should start flashing your phone to the Rogers Rom. It will remain network unlocked, but you'll get back your AT&T LTE if you're on AT&T, including Network sharing. Rogers has also formally released Cyan and 8.1, so I've been able to upgrade to those. Phone is working wonderfully now.

    Thanks
    Tamir
    If I follow these steps to a tee, how likely or unlikely would I be to brick my Lumia 1020? Obviously these would be the steps to flashing the ROM and it seems a number of people in this thread have followed them with success, but what as someone doing this for the first time, what should I know about why the process could potentially go wrong? Something to do with a connection, etc?

    Hello All,

    Just wondering if anyone else has contacted on sent an email to Nokia customer service.

    This week I've received 2 follow up calls after requesting my call to be escalated and also requesting a supervisor.
    Just a few minutes ago I was requested to send a screen capture of the "more info" and "about" of my 1020.

    The "specialist" on the phone told me that the only official released phone for the US market listed on Nokia system is the ATT variant.
    I told him unless Microsoft is not authorized to sell Nokia, or selling grey market items on the store, someone at Nokia forgot to add this one to the list.

    Again my case has been escalated to a different department, and they promised a call back on Monday, as they will forward the screen captures to whatever department I'm being sent to.

    Can I suggest the users waiting for an update on US to please open a case on Nokia website?
    Maybe if we owners decide to seek a response from them, we will get it.
    There is one question they have no answer for, and that's what keeps my ticket open:
    Why is this phone not even listed in the update schedule?
    Only ATT variant is listed, mine is unlocked...

    Hopefully someone else from this forum will contact Nokia.
    And somehow this ticket will reach correct department or whoever needs to look into this.

    Your carrier is ATT, so it's different from some of us not being able to update.
    The unlocked ones sold on Microsoft sore are 000-US, 000 meaning no carrier attached to phone.

    I opened a ticket online on nokia.com, I just kept pushing for an answer.
    I have a service request and escalation number, so I'm really hoping for an answer.
    Yesterday I had a follow up call and hopefully next week as promised, they will call.
    I'll share after...

    Somewhat off topic, but I flashed the Rogers ROM (059T1V9) to my 1020 that I'm using on T-Mobile, and I was able to get internet sharing working following this guide http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...obile-sim.html

    A slight variation: When you install access point, it may not show the current sim. Restart phone, swap sims, etc... until access point shows data from the foreign SIM. Once it does, change your date and uninstall access point before restarting the phone. Once access point is uninstalled, turn off your phone, change your SIM, and internet sharing should work.

    That's really good news, thanks for sharing.
    When the update was done for Nokia Recovery Tool (ver 1.50) I quickly installed just to verified that our phone was updated on serves, but sadly it said ... no package to download... or something like that.
    Now I check again and we have something to download.
    Which means they're actually moving forward with this!
