    Cool, downloading it now.

    Is the firmware heavily customized for operator? Noticed any differences?
    059R4H0: RM-821_Orange_CH_VAR260471_12491_001_v2_White
    => The URLs in extras-Info are the ones for Mobiltelefone, Mobil- & Internet-Abonnemente, Entertainment Services - Orange Communications SA/AG instead of Handy - Festnetz - Internet - Mobiles Internet - TV | A1.net (my real provider).
    - you will find an app called SBB (Timetable for "Swiss Train") which can be deleted.
    - orange is the design-color by default after 1st bootup - just do a restore and you will get your old settings, apps and colours...

    apon tryingto install the nokia care program, it says I needed MS VC ++ 2010. So I downloaded and installed, then it said I needed MS VC ++ 2005 SP1 so I downloaded and installed, but now it still says I need MS VC ++ 2005 SP1. But I installed it.... anyone got any ideas? also is there a way to do this without the nokia care program?

    Could you check whether this ROM appears to has a Thai keyboard available under the "Add Keyboard" section?
    If it does, then I think I'll try to flash my LM with this ROM.

    Another question is, is it possible for me to flashed my LM back to the old ROM (Native ROM)?

    Just 1 last question: my device is Red LM, and this is the ROM for White LM. Will it be any conflict issue?

    Thank you in advance.

    It does show Thai and all other keyboards and it shows Thai-letters on the keyboard when I switch to Thai from German or English in the Mail app.

    BE AWARE that 4G is gone using this firmware - no problem for me as I don't have a sim capable of using 4G networks.

    Thanks for letting us know. Do you get the h+ logo or are you now stuck with 3G for the data connection?

    Sorry to say that I'm not sure of this.
    But I think you'll surely know the latest status by visiting this forums.

    Just wanted to point out that it seems as if Orange in Switzerland doesn't have an LTE network, which is why that option is disappearing. You might want to try the Belgium Proximus firmware as Proximus has an LTE network. If anyone tries, I would be interested in hearing if your 4G still works after flashing (Proximus uses the 1800 MHz frequency for its LTE which is widespread, but a lot of others use different frequencies and the RM-821 should be able to handle them all - or at least the 2600 MHz which is also widespread).

    Can someone check on which Portico ROMs have the 4G option?

    I have tested the Switzerland ROM

    RM821_1232.5951.1249.1003_RETAIL_eu_euro2_345_03_118252_prd_signed

    And it does not have the 4G option.

    Update: Nevermind, I found it.

    There are generally two types of NL920 phones. The rm820 and rm821. rm820 is only for US and Canada, while the rm821 is for the rest of the world. If your phone is rm821, you can flash any ROM for rm821. I am not sure how rm820 works.

    I just checked, the Belgium Proximus ROM has 4G option.

    However, the date+time set automatically option has been removed.

    And there are no carriers associated with this ROM, weird.

    Yupp, I installed the Belgian rom on my Swedish phone and it went well in the end. As generalsu said, the 4G works (shows as L on the status field, but I've speed tested it and it's running with my local LTE provider) and the auto time/date option is missing.

    Otherwise, this firmware seems to be working a charm. I'll be testing the camera more in the next few days, but I'm pretty happy to have gotten a functioning 4G firmware with the fix on my international 920 (RM-821).

    I also installed the Belgian rom on my Danish phone and all went well and noticed same things as you.

    Did some testing with the camera and I actually found the camera even WORSE now when it comes to soft pictures with the Belgian rom so now I just flashed back the danish rom that it came with. Guess these are not final roms because camera really really didn't improve in the Belgian rom. Lot's of tweaking to camera is needed

    I've contacted Nokia care twice and both times they seem to think the rm821 will still be getting portico in December. What was the source for the February statement?

    Thanks to you @arni99, I'm success in flashing my Thai LM920 with the ROM you suggest without any issues.
    The daylight shot seems better than before, but still not sure if it really that different (cause I'm not the photography guy - -')

    But, still impressed with the pics quality here.

    Just 1 remark from me, I think the night shot seems a bit harder to get the proper pics (often blurry image) comparing with before update.
    Anyway, I'll try again tonight.

    I reflashed the Switzerland-Orange ROM with my original Austrian ROM, but 4G is still missing although it shows my Austrian provider A1 as mobile operator.
    No issue for me as my SIM does not support LTE...and I am happy with H+ speed.
    Just a warning for you that 4G might be gone (forever?).
    Back to Switzerland-Orange ROM again ;).

    Anybody knows why the color is important when choosing the right ROM for your phone?

    You will be losing 4G (LTE) using this ROM and reflashing with the original 1242 firmware does NOT restore 4G in mobile data max. speed settings....at least in my case ;).
