    Hi,

    My lumia 521 used to work with internet sharing on windows 8.0. However, after update to windows 8.1 Cyan internet sharing stopped working.

    I want to restore back to 8.0 but the windows recovery tool can only restore to the latest firmware. So where can I find and download the older versions of firmware, like 8.0 Amber or Black (gdr2, gdr3) firmware? I want to download them and flash the ROM, but cannot find them.

    Thank you for your help!

    Did you check APN settings? When I updated to denim, I lost them and I asked my carrier

    Thank you. I added the new APN.

    I believe the phone blocked internet sharing. As it worked on Windows 8.0, I believe the updated firmware blocked it. So I want to find the older versions to flash.

    And I think 521 does not have update to Denim.
