    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 ;).
    If you flash back the original ROM, you'll still get the 4G option back if you have LTE with your carrier of course. Some Country Variant ROM will have the 4G option untied to any carrier, such as Singapore.

    Why did I have the 4G option before on my original ROM although my SIM does not support 4G? Thanks. ;-)

    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
    Hi, I believe you, but just wanted to ask how you tested this? Were you been pleased with your pictures on the original firmware?

    Just wondering if I might do better to switch to the prefix Danish rom for better results. Still, for me, it "feels" like the pictures are better on the Belgian rom than the Swedish, but may just be a placebo effect. I'm not sure.

    I think the 4G option is dependent on the ROM you flashed as opposed to what your microSIM card can support.

    So has anyone flashed their EE branded phone with the Belgian firmware yet?

    I'm far from happy with the pictures on the Danish Rom. Pictures are soft on that Rom as well but I found the pictures much more washed out and soft on the Belgian Rom.
    I took pictures in different lighting situations and pictures still came out soft but with the Belgian Rom it also seemed like a cloudy white layer was present in the pictures. This was especially bad in low light pictures.

    Those of you who have the Belgian ROM installed, does anybody see any improvement in the pictures? Any worse pictures?

    One person so far says the pictures are worse (thyttel). For me, I felt the contrast was a bit better, but when I finally managed to get my old, pre-fix pictures from Skydrive, I really can't see any improvement. Looking at the pictures folks are taking on the other side of the pond makes me wonder if (a) the camera fix didn't really make it into these builds of Portico or (b) reinstalling from a backup overwrites the configuration improvements in the camera app. Otherwise, the Belgian ROM fixed my battery issues and problems with Skype among other things, so it's a step in the right direction, but I'm just wondering if it's half-baked on the camera front.

    So what do you say about your pictures after installing the update? Which update are you using, Belgian, Swiss, North African?

    I updated using Swiss ROM as arni99 suggested.
    RM821_1232.5951.1249.1003_RETAIL_eu_euro2_345_03_118252_prd_signed

    I think the quality of my pics is better than before (my Thai stock ROM), at least in my point of view.

    here is the sample of my pics after the update.

    100% crop
    crop100-_lumia920_newfw.jpg

    the original one (default setting, just resized and censor the license plate)

    wp_20121221_053_edited_resized.jpg

    I satisfied with the result anyway, but if there is any better ROM, I'm ready for another round of flashing my LM ^ ^.

    Manufactuer model name
    RM-821_eu_euro1_247
    mobile operator name
    TNO-NO
    configuration ID
    100566

    so it's branded under Telenor Norway, but when opn navifirm, i see a list of releases, which one do I click on?

    could I install any rom on my phone?

    Also telenor Norway, did you test any of the roms?

    The ROM I used (RM821_1232.5951.1249.1003_RETAIL_eu_euro2_345_03_118252_prd_signed) --> Swiss ROM doesn't have a 4G connection (at least not showing for me)
    Now, I flashed another ROM (which is North Africa: RM821_1232.5951.1249.1001_RETAIL_im_mea3_454_01_120782_prd_signed) --> This ROM also doesn't have a 4G option showing on my LM920

    Anyway, I'm in Thailand and we won't have a 4G/LTE connection anytime soon (3-4 years at least). So, it's not the issue for me.

    But both ROM do have an auto date/time option for me ^ ^.

    PS. I would say, after I flashed the North Africa ROM, I think the images quality I got is better than the Swiss ROM.
    The North Africa has less focus time, the contrast & details in the image is better than the Swiss ROM.

    The night mode also gave a the impressive result. I'm happy (more than before) with my LM920

    I think it's possible (never try myself, but theoretically, it should work).

    I never back those thing up before the ROM flashing, sorry.

    A quick question:

    I want to flash my Polish Lumia 920. I can pick any portico rom and it should work, right? Also, will I still be able to use Polish as a language in my phone, if for example I flash it with RM-821_Orange_CH_VAR260471_12491_001_v2_White?

    Yes, the list of languages remains the same, regardless of which ROM you are gonna use. I use the ROM you mentioned and have polska in my list of available languages.

    So I flashed my unlocked generic UK model with the belgian ROM.

    It is great to have the 4G option in the network speed options.

    But ##3282# no longer takes me to the field settings menu which is strange... can anyone check this out? Thanks.

    So it looks like the offering on Navifirm is slowly growing. There are now T-Mobile Germany, T-Mobile Poland, T-Mobile Hungary and T-Mobile Netherlands roms available there. Not sure which of these have 4G/LTE enabled, but T-Mobile Germany has an LTE network so 4G should be enabled.

    While I'm pleased with the general performance of the Belgian rom (it's now been giving me 48 hours of battery time whereas the original rom gave my only about 18 hours), I am less than enamoured with the camera performance so I'm going to try one of the German roms and will report my findings here. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve so I'll be testing the camera in a live situation and hoping for the best.

    Hello, I'd like to report some of my findings.

    I can confirm that the ##3282# code doesn't take me into the field settings menu for 2 different portico roms

    My 2nd flash, the one listed as RM-821_belgium_CV_VAR241742_1249_1_001_Black_V1_White with a SW version of 1232.5951.1249.1001 has 4G as an option in the Settings->mobile network page. I currently don't have a 4G sim/lte plan so I can't test out lte connectivity.

    My original was an unlocked Orange Poland branded white lumia and I'm in Korea if that makes a difference.
