    Hello there,

    I got a Lumia 925 from China, RM-910, with China Unicom's software. I have taken the phone to Canada. Although I am able to access the app store and everything seems to work, I cannot add Facebook accounts to the phone, even though it's also linked to my Microsoft account. I can download the Facebook app, but it would not integrate into the phone (e.g. contacts). It seems to be a firmware issue - the Chinese versions simply don't have Facebook support built in. Is it possible to flash the firmware to another version to get the Facebook integration?

    RM-910 is the version without 4G, and according to Wikipedia, only sold on China Unicom and China Mobile carriers. How might I fix this issue?

    p.s. Nokia did not release 925 in Canada, so official support might be a long shot.

    Regards,
    David

    Is it possible to flash - Yes, I guess.

    How - I don't know.

    Then why did you answer my thread? - Only to show off my new avatar and this thread that might help you,

    This thread is for 920, I think, repeat think it should be similar for 925.

    Oh, don't forget to check my new avatar ;)

    Thanks, your avatar looks great! :p

    I looked on the Chinese side of the web and there seems to be a Vietnamese version of the firmware that many have reported to have flashed successfully. My primary worry now is - if I somehow brick the phone, possibly no one in Canada will be able to fix my phone. Any suggestions? In a case of bricking the phone, what might I do other than send it off to China again?

    All I know about Canada and Nokia is that they hate each other, meaning you'll be hanging on a thread if you break something.
