    That's not for Firmware updates!! That's only Nokia app updates. Nothing to do with 1308.xx
    These updates are only for those who have already upgraded to firmware 1308.xx
    Check for himself and see.
    Nokia Windows Phone 8 App Updates - Nokia Support Discussions

    Mainly the following features:

    Access Point
    Network+ (previously Calls + SMS)
    Extras + Info

    I guess that I was referring to the Nokia update and not the firmware update. I thought they were the same thing 😊

    The only way to check for an OTA update for this particular version is through 'Settings > Phone Update > Check For Updates' right?

    The only thing I hate about WP8/LM920 is the duration it took to push updates out to the general public.

    Just switched from a Galaxy S2 running CyanogenMod 10.1 to a Lumia 820. But very much a newbie on the whole flashing/updating thing. Hoping someone will have pity on my cluelessness and point me in the right direction to start learning about the world of updating a Lumia? :-)

    Settings/About says:
    OS version: 8.0.10211.204
    Firmware: 1232.5951.1249.1001

    What decade am I living in with that and how/should I update to something newer? I go to Check for updates, and it seems to think what I have is just fine. Am I running Portico? Is there something newer?

    And most importantly, pointing me towards a FAQ of some kind that explains all this will drastically reduce how much of a pain I am in this forum :-)

    Thanks in advance -

    Just an update on battery life....

    So far (day 2) I'm experiencing the horrible battery life everyone else has been. It nearly completely drained today with extremely light usage.

    Have you tried to switch the phone off/on when it behaves like this? I'm still on portico, but my battery meter can't be trusted. when my phone drains too fast, I switch the phone off and then on, my battery meter just jumped from 24% to 64% which is alot, it usually jumps 20-30%. I have never experienced a worse battery meter on any phone, can it really be so hard to fix?

    I have also noticed better connectivity with the Xbox 360 while having a pass code. I have been running the same dashboard version pre and post install so it must be WP8 side.

    Okay I did this non-OTA yesterday as I had to do it for science. Its been 18 hours since I updated, fully charged phone. I've only been texting since - nothing else. I have 93% battery remaining! No background tasks. 3G, tap to send, location, find my phone - always on.

    The steps remain same as this thread here - http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...n-install.html
    You first find out what your device's number is RM821 is Lumia 920 but you need to find out product code. That thread tells you how to find product code.

    Once you know product code, you just enter it and it will automatically show you newest firmware, you download it, and install it - very straight forward. Follow that guide.

    I have EE locked phone too - it doesn't change anything. You don't lose anything. There isn't any Orange customization and the ROMs your flash are for EE so nothing to worry about.

    Also, radio firmware has been updated.

    The most noticeable difference now is - with highest connection speed set to 4G, a non-4G SIM doesn't keep jumping to find 4G network! Earlier we had to change that to 3G so you never get 3G+ speeds. Now its been nearly a day and my highest connection speed is 4G. The network is stable and I can connect to internet at 3G+. However, it could just be EE's network improved suddenly so will wait for someone else to observe this.

    I just tried this, after pulling my battery from the charger and it being at 95% (after next to no use), and it went to 100%. This sucks, as I now know I can't trust my battery meter. Would doing power cycles help it recalibrate? I know there is this whole "that was only with old batteries" movement going on, but it would make sense that it would have to calibrate for the software, and not the battery itself...

    Another thing I've noticed is that Bing wallpapers correctly update now. Again, idk if its because I installed a fresh new ROM, but I'm just glad it finally works again.
