    I did make a previous thread but it was in the wrong place so apologies :/

    I was just wondering if there was anyone who was on the DP w/ Black firmware and decided to hard-reset and downgrade so they could update to Cyan firmware. If so, any improvements noted? I've seen quite a few threads with issues on Cyan regarding the camera, so I'm just using up whether it's worth the hard-reset (I get the stutters around the OS, sometimes it randomly reboots but otherwise it's mostly fine).

    YES. I did it. it took forever, but I wanted the Bluetooth LE back on for my fitbit app. I got tired of waiting for MS to fix the bitlocker issue.

    I just re-activated the program after the update to get update1 (app folders)

    I even got another update last night - not sure what that gave me though


    camera issues - it seems to be having an issue with auto-focus since the update - it's a PITA, not sure if others are seeing it or not

    Did you start fresh or restore from a backup? If so, what was it like in comparison to how your phone was set-up before in terms of settings, accounts and apps? Any noticeable improvements in performance?

    "so they could update to Cyan Firmware"
    Why would you want to da that? Wat till you can get a regular update to Cyan with DP.

    Nothing in cyan worth the downgrade and restore hassle for me.

    I restored from the backup and it pulled back all the previous apps and favorite photo's - the only thing that annoyed me was when I copied back my photo's - (the non-favorited camera-roll and saved pictures) I lost all the date information (ctime?) so they are now completely out of order on the camera roll - that sucks

    also a fair number of app's needed re-configuring - not much got pulled back - but at least the apps I had when the backup was taken got reinstalled automatically

    phone seems pretty much the same in terms of performance, not noticeable to me anyway

    Hmm, I was hoping it might alleviate some of the stutters I've been getting with the DP. Ah well, I'll just wait for the Bitlocker fix then :P

    My 1020 was constantly loosing glance clock - it was just bouncing outside of the screen viewport. I reported that few times and they fixed that with cyan. Also battery lasts longer and since the upgrade I have never experienced a battery drain issue nor any overheating. It might be due to hard reset and not cyan upgrade but in overall I'm very happy. Finally I feel the phone is very stable.
