    Can you please cite a verifiable source for this claim? It otherwise amounts to no more than perpetuating an urban legend based upon one's own opinion and impressions.
    I agree - any advise to not plug the phone in during an update is a complete urban legend.

    Not having your phone plugged in during a firmware update is a BAD thing. You're asking for trouble because the phone gets hit pretty hard during every update as it's running 100% for 5 minutes-5 hours depending on the phone. You don't want a phone to loose power during an update as that has potential to loose data at minimum.

    Speaking of urban legends, do you know real cases where people started to flash at 100% and ended with an empty battery?

    Flashing the device when it's at 100% is OK, and you certainly don't need a wall charger. You always can plug the wall charger after hours if the update take more time than planned.

    I had read this on a French windowsphone forum, during the first DevPreview release. A guy had that assumption and tested it against those who had a "battery" issue after that DevPreview update, and most of them had flashed the DP while being plugged. I can try to find again that article, it was in april.

    Windows central uploaded a news that the denim information in the setting is wrong. It's just a bug. Actual version is still cyan.

    Thanks Paul; the problem is that OP has GDR1, maybe because the previous owner installed DP (hard reset doesn't wipe OS updates). Hence the advice to flash with nokia recovery tool.

    Finally resets the phone with Nokia Recovery Tool. Lost the developer preview, no more live folders, it really is a handy feature.

    Why do you point us to the main page of Daily India, unrelated to the topic?
