    I flashed a different mobile carrier onto my mobile I.e went from Vodafone branding to Three ireland branding. I know that flashing firmware is different to OS but I am just wondering since this process was simple I'm wondering can I get update 2 this way?

    That would require that Update 2 be officially available to the 520 before we can do that.

    So no, you can't flash directly AFAIK.

    Darn it!! I'd really like to have it on my phone. I like the GUI. I've seen many videos of it on youtube. Have you any idea of a release date?

    Not for these WP8.0 phones, we're skipping directly to 10 unless it appears on any Preview program. (and I dont mean the luck/not-always-happening/not-supposed-to-happen Insider trick)

    It's not that different besides settings is it?

    I know like it's only a menu that's changed I just like to have my phone updated to all updates, I had WP10TP and it was good but it wasn't without its bugs. I suppose ill wait for an official WP10 release. Really sad 😢 lol

    I would've actually flashed a ROM with no branding, that would not have helped you get Update 2 but at least a clean OS. You can still get Update 2 with the post on the Ativ S forum. But I saw your comment that you were not able to succeed. I was able to do it back it back couple of times now. It really makes a difference in speed.

    I got as far as applying the custom xap and it said that it wasn't available even though it was on my sd card. So frustrating lol

    Yes Win10 is very buggy. I had it and drove me insane lol. But it will be a beautiful OS once its official.

    How would I go about finding a ROM without branding? Don't want to flash something that bricks my phone. There are so many ROMs out there for my RM... product code.

    What's your product code? Flashing ROMs does not brick your device, at most it fails with a FFU error but that's about it.

    Edit: BTW product code and variant are two different things

    RM-914 is the product type, not the product code ;)

    As there is no IE CV ROM for the Lumia 520 (RM-914), you can flash for example 059S3T5 RM-914 VAR EURO1 GB CV.

    Ah I see but wouldn't flashing a GB variant cause problems with updates in the future? Is that the proper ROM for my lumia. I will give it a go.

    I don't know if the GB CV variant is among the first served in terms of update, but even if this is not the case, there is no problem for future updates.

    If you want really an ROM that will be among the first to get the updates, so flash the ROM that integrates the FI CV variant, because in general for the Lumia devices it is this variant that is the first to get the updates.

    Nope the process is pretty simple:

    1) Flash ROM (059S3T5) and make sure you get the Denim release. If not enable Preview for Developers and get to OS version 8.10.14219.341 (this is important)
    2) Hard Reset
    3) Go through setup and update all system apps as well as preinstalled apps
    4) Remove SD card and deploy the custom WP CustomWPSystem.xap from here
    5) Reinsert SD card, change new apps location to SD card from Storage Sense and install Preview for Developers on SD card. No need to open it
    6) Pin PfD to start screen and complete the patching process mentioned here
    7) Change the registry to the Highscreen phone and OS 15317 should start downloading.
    8) Once installed, hard reset and proceed as usual
