    I have Lumia 822 factory unlocked in India .
    I have seen this blog mentioning new Firmware released by Verizon and I hav checked for updates manually since last few days but with no luck.
    Is there any way I can manually install this firmware by Verizon and also the Lumia Black update.

    Firmware rolling out for Lumia handsets on Verizon and AT&T, no Lumia Black yet | Windows Phone Central

    What Verizon pushed out was just OS updates and not Nokia's Black firmware update itself. We just have to wait till Verizon releases it :D

    @primortal You are saying that "The Updates pushed out by Verizon was just OS updates", but the link I have pasted suggests that they are "Firmware Updates".
    Even if they are OS Updates, I cant get those OS updates also.

    So I wanted to know if those OS Updates(i.e. firmware update) pushed by Verizon can be can be installed manually?

    It depends on what you already have
    If you have installed the preview for developers GDR3 update, and the next update 151 or 155 at the end, then you should not get the current update.

    It wouldn't matter where in the world you are, If Verizon releases an updates for the 822 in the US, you would get it anyway.

    I have Lumia Amber Update installed on my 822 and no other updates after Lumia Amber.
    I have not installed any preview for developers updates including GDR3.

    @vinu_h
    The link I pasted in my question clearly states that Verizon has pushed a firmware updates on 27Jan 2014, since then I have manually checked several times for update but it says "Your phone is up to date".

    If you read in the title it says "no Lumia Black yet" so there is the first clue. Then in the article,

    Nope. The updates for the above devices appear to just carrier firmware specific updates. No Lumia Black yet for those devices on those particular networks.
    The firmware update was just Verizon specific and not Nokia's Lumia Black.

    @primortal -U mean the firmware updates by Verizon are only for users who are on Verizon network and have Lumia 822 handsets

    Not really. I've got 822 and I'm NOT on Verizon network (I'm not even in the US). I have received that small update.

    Where r u located?

    Did you installed the updates manually or your phone indicated that the update is available.

    Please elaborate how to get the update on Lumia 822 or 928 if you have done it manually.

    I checked the setting->phone updates option
    Also tried to update using "Nokia Phone Updater" S/W but with no luck.

    I'm in Georgia (a country in the Caucasus).
    Weirdly, my phone didn't tell me that the update was available, I've been checking for it from time to time. That's how I've got it.

    Maybe your carriers have anything to do with your troubles, guys?
    Unfortunately, I have no idea on what might be "wrong" with your updates.

    The firmware update for Lumia 822 RM-845 will be rolled out by product code. If your IP address is not located in an embargo country you will get it, when it's released.

    Your network operator / internet servoce provider doesn't have any influence whether you will get it or not.

    Complete images for Nokia Software Recovery Tool will be released some hours / days after OTA rollout.

    So, will we be able to install Update 3 and Black with Nokia Software Recovery Tool?

    If your IP address is not located in an embargo country you will get it, when it's released.
    But the guys are from India and India is not in any embargo list from the USA. And they still can't install that minor update.
