    This might also be helpful: Download an app called SysApp Pusher and use it to make sure that all your system apps are up to date.

    If you are using 8.1 DP, then you won't have Cyan. Cyan is firmware and is only bundled with the official 8.1 release. DP only updates to 8.1 (OS)

    Cyan is firmware for the phone's hardware. Cyan is NOT the WP8.1 OS.

    There seems to be a hell of a lot of confusion over Cyan.

    If Extra+Info says Amber, then you will be running the Amber firmware....

    thanks for reply i got it , but when i first purchased my phone it was running amber then i updated it to lumia black using nokia software recovery tool and in extras + info the right software release version name " Lumia Black " was written but when i inserted my sim card i got a notification says " Phone Updated " and then the phone restarted so i opened extras + info again and it says Lumia Amber again

    NOTE: i wasn't using DP

    Same exact situation here the name has changed from black to amber after I inserted the Vodafone SIM and I'm from Egypt too.
