    Hi all

    The fact that the firmware is available on the Nokia Retail Updater suggests to me that it is good to go for a clean install but that there may be some problems with the update process. I bit the bullet last night and updated it via a clean flash and so far no problems at all.

    God bless

    I think there may be a problem too. I have the euro dev fw and notice problems with the browser and now the yellow Procam tint too.
    Once the EE fw comes out i will reflash. The camera prob might be fixed

    I was hoping that NFC support would be improved with the updates but it's still the same. It's impossible to share files to and from my 920 using NFC. My 808 and Nexus 7 have no problems in this area.

    Talked to a customer rep this morning, who says the update for the 920 is not expected until the end of Sept. If they had said on twitter last week "end of Sept", then okay, but these lies just antagonise their wp consumers, and drive people away. Hardly a good business model! I suppose we don't matter in the grand scheme.

    Tbh, i wish they'd just skip this update, as we are so far along the line now anyways. They should focus on GDR3 in Nov, and ensure we get it early. (but i wont hold my breath)

    Sure is disappointing. However, I would doubt very much that any plan skip to GDR3 would be delivered to handsets this year. HTC confirmed in some territories that this is happening but its not expected on devices until 'early 2014' so lets hope that doesn't happen given the length of time GDR2 has/is taking via EE.

    If EE missed any updates for a phone I'd got through them during the length of my contract I'd be mighty pissed. I expect them to fully support any phone they have sold.

    I don't disagree, and still expect the gdr2 update to rollout... But with each day that passes, its significance to us reduces. This should have been sent to us at least 3 weeks ago, but here we are with no sign of a rollout.

    Nope, that error has been happening for the best part of a week now. It seems to be sporadic. In no way does it imply an imminent roll out! Sorry.

    dang, I was looking for an EE GDR2 thread as I thought that error code may be significant.

    I agree, EE are ****. If Voda have 4G in my town by the time by contract runs out come November '14 then I'm going to them.

    Seemingly, EE are terrible at updates, but in terms of overall network performance, i have no complaints. In fact, i find it more stable than the others in my area. I just wish they had more enthusiasm for Nokia and WP generally!

    I just got my EE branded lumia back from repair. It has the lumia amber update. Is there any software versions you guys need to know (I'm new with WP8) I can download all the new apps like smart and pro cam. If I go into extras+info it says lumia amber.

    Also, if you have 'Nokia Software Updater For Retail', do you know what product code you have?

    Well they still didn't specify which model, and they still have the 820 as well as the 920 to release. Hopefully they will release both at the same time.

    the 820 is shown as "coming soon" on the Nokia update page, whereas the 920 is still "waiting for approval". Its safe to assume the 820 release before the 920.

    (I saw this in the Official Amber update thread for the Lumia 920, EE twitter account) EE are now admitting publicly to a delay, and blaming Microsoft in the process. So, first it was Nokia's fault, now Microsoft. They say they're awaiting a new date from Microsoft?? I've had enough, and will update manually using Navifirm. God knows when (if) this update will come now.
