    It doesn't help. I guess non rm-824 has denim update yet.
    yes, mine is from ATT. your method works. but there is no new update on this debranded channel as well. also I tried to reset the phone and it returned back to ATT.
    I knew that would happen. Let me look for another unlocked Americas CV code that works for you.

    Will there be a problem waiting to IMEI unlock AFTER the de-branding?
    Flashing phones and debranding are eventually the same thing. If AT&T would not have that strict platform ID check baked onto its ROMs this guide would not have existed. You should be fine requesting the unlock code later.

    Ah, so I need the carrier unlock to get updates directly?
    After the debranding process you should get updates directly from MS and not wait for AT&T. The phone being IMEI unlocked/locked is not going to change anything, the ROM controls this.

    Thank you so much for the clarifications. Will do backups today, rebranding and update to Update 2 tomorrow, unlock next week. :)

    I think to make things go faster, I'll set up 2 backups, first, one as is. Then, rename the phone, remove all apps, and backup under that. Then I can use a backup of "no apps" for the resets, then do a final reset back to the original phone backup name. That should work and help speed things along a bit.

    I'll lose progress in one game. One lousy game. Oh, well. I suppose I can start over on that one. I'll never again be tied to a carrier waiting for updates. Hooray! I'll post back with results after the attempt.

    You don't have to do 2 backups, just don't restore during the process and restore only once you're done with everything

    DOH! That's what I get for trying to think this through before my morning cup of coffee. I'll go get my coffee now.

    I'm not believing this. I got the unlock code from AT&T just 5 hours, 15 minutes after the request. New world record, I think.

    The AT&T 520 can be flashed to the LTA MX ROM directly using Nokia Product Support Tool, no need for this hack.

    Visit Installing WP 8.1 Update 2 on Lumia Devices**. It's a guide like this thread that will help you get Update 2. It's what I used to get Update 2 on my L635, and djeire84 used it I believe for hers.

    If hard reset resets all settings incl. registery files, is unbranded condition continues after reset?

    It seems that you've changed the model number/operator name of registery to pretend unbranded one.
    But if resetting wipes them too, is it still unbranded? Or reverted id to stock and has only unbranded firmware?

    And I wonder what will happen if I restore the device using Microsoft WP restore tool after do this.

    Anyway, thanks a lot. You helped me. My phone finally got update 2 thanks to you.

    The phone cannot be restored to stock using WP Recovery Tool. The hard reset doesn't re-brand the device, only wipes off all user data and restores to ROM defaults

    I am sorry but if you are really asking this question then I wouldn't suggest doing the update.
