    What Lumia Help instructed me is to update Denim thru Recovery Tool. They kept mum on the OTA
    Does updating through Recovery Tool mean hard resetting? Or is it like the OTA, deleting nothing?

    I started to use the Rate us button in the settings menu, and send a zero. I Will do this Every Day until the OTA denim comes out.

    I might me mistaken but I'm pretty sure that Microsoft sells Windows Phone as an OS for business users, how is it plausible that to update the phone you have to have your data wiped. Some things on the phone can't be backed up. The process shouldn't be this hard and instead of suggesting hard, alternative ways of updating they should actually fix the OTA update process. I don't understand what is so special about HK CV, they have updated countless other regions via OTA...

    Even I don't get it why can't they OTA for us. I guess we are just unlucky. Also did anyone else get the cyan update really late? I got mine around August time last year.

    Good luck! I did the same, but I have to admit that I've been wondering why I did this again. Hey Cortana is cool, but after having it not respond a few times I've gone back to using the search button. It is kind of nice how quickly the camera launches though.

    I did this and I have Denim on my 1520 and I can report that it is working fine! In my opinion, aside from Hey Cortana! and Lumia Camera v5.0x, the interface seems a trifle smoother (though this could very well be a placebo effect), the battery life seems a bit better and the overall responsiveness of the system seems better.

    Frankly, I have not tried using the camera yet though. I have trained Hey Cortana, but I would have liked "her" to be able to send emails etc., which I believe is a Windows 10 feature. Other than that I can't see too much of a difference of any kind really.

    But at least the phone is up-to-date and is working well.

    The other thing that I was really surprised about is that why this was not a OTA update and why did it have to go through LSRT. Oh well, Microsoft works in mysterious ways, I guess!

    Thanks also I wanted to ask did you guys take out your sd card before using LSRT?

    I always do, but have no valid reason for doing so. I've read posts from people who have argued for and against it.

    MS should release the OTA update asap. I don't want to hard reset my phone and wipe all the data I have for the sake of denim. This is ridiculous... I have been a Windows Phone fan since the Windows Mobile times, and updates have always been the main problem :/ I REALLY love my 1520, but this waiting sequence for denim is just tiring.

    The only thing that bothers me is that I'll have to do a hard reset anyway.
    I can do it now, and get Denim via LSRT.
    Or I could just wait for the OTA (and who knows when will it come), and then do a hard reset because it's recommended to do it after each software upgrade.

    I never do a hard reset after an update. Never experienced any problems, provided that they have the update rolled out lol

    Why are they still going and not coming up with an answer when with some of you they have said use Software Recovery or please wait while it rolls out. I find it highly odd that they have given different answers to different people.

    A piece of news from a Chinese tech site indicate(maybe confirm?) the OTA of Hong Kong Lumia 1520 hasn't started yet.
    I don't know where they get this information, anyway, that make me relief, at least, for a moment.
