    Seems like the phone has major problems with Black update.
    Just installed SIMS FreePlay. Crashes right after launch. Some apps work without any problem though.

    Seems like v2 )))
    Seems like only apps that are affected with that "no-launch" syndrome are Here family of apps and "big" games like Dredd vs Zombies, 2020: My Country, Asphalt, SIMS FreePlay etc
    "Small" games like cards and such work well
    Contacted Game-Insight and Rebellion with my troubles. Let's see what the response will be.

    Hello All:

    Thanks for the quick replies. Showing - OS v# 10517.150 Firmware3051.40000.1352.0042

    From your notes above, this seems down rev'ed from "Black". Now showing "no updates available" .......
    -Update-

    Thanks to all again for the ideas and assistance. Last night, Verizon pushed another update to my 822. This time - The real Black. Installed perfectly and I have found none of the problems with apps running or camera as some have noted (thank goodness!).

    Having been black since it was made available.

    Here are son observations I've made.

    - Videos seem to stop loading at a certain point when I pause it.
    - Turning Wifi off isn't instant like before

    + Glance Background Beta is fantastic
    + Turning off vibration from the capacitive keys is great.
    + closing apps by pressing X is a lifesaver.

    I'll add more as I make more observations.

    Try if the screen rotation sensor works. My 925 had the same issue. Black is a mess!

    Hello, Does anyone have an update? Sockensuppe says it's a mess? Anyone else agree / disagree?

    I've been holding off updating.

    Best Wishes, No Worries

    I can agree with all less the haptic feedback (keyboard vib. - I like it)..... the feature in Black I like and use most is the double tap to wake...... no problems on my 822......

    I'm enjoying the Glance and double tap to wake features so much now, along with the others of course, that's what keeping me from jumping on the Icon!

    Does anyone have a bug with playing music with headphones? The volume will not change until the next song plays.

    The 822 is a nice fit. I like that my wide tile fits wall to wall. I only have two wide tiles but these need to stand out without a medium tile to fill the width of the device.
    I don't need every app to have a tile regardless of size.
    The updated glance is better. The backgrounds from the glance backgrounds app are interesting to experiment with.

    Updated to Black as soon as it became available, took twice as long as the Amber update to download and install (about 30 - 35 minutes total). Loving the new features and no problems so far.

    Has anyone figured this out? Would really like to get my camera working again since it's the main reason I got the phone.

    So far, so good. Downloaded the APP Folder and it works great.

    The ability to close APPS easily by dragging to the bottom is great.... checking out new BING apps... nice....

    opps... my bad.... you close the APP by an X on top of the app.
    That's a loose rumor for 8.1. Not official yet, so I don't know. Wait till April 3rd to hear at Build 2014

    If anyone who successfully updated can you tell me why glance has no notifications?

    you need to update glance in store.

    Updated to Black without issue here. Works great and quite frankly if we also get a 8.1 update I see no real reason to dump the 822 for a long time.

    Just switched to the 822 yesterday and while it's pulled down a couple updates, still no Black update. I'm on:

    VZW
    8.0.10517.150
    3051.40000.1352.0042

    Looking for Glance and the double tap but no luck yet...I keep hitting the check for update but nothing...anything to try and pull it through other than being patient?

    3051.40000.1352.0042
    Same here, but running 8.0.10521.155 and I *do* have black with full glance, tap to wake and all the goodies, so I think you're just missing a couple of updates before you get the store notifications for the Nokia apps
