    I just installed today's update and it says I'm now on 8.0.10328.78 also. Under extras + info it says I'm still on Amber and the new features aren't installed In fact, I don't notice any changes. :( I guess it must mean they're getting closer to rolling out Black.

    After the update....screen had a yellowish cast to it. Seems to have worked that out now. Why would they push that out without Lumia Black ?

    So it looks like it was a bust. It just downloaded the latest firmware that nokia has on it's update site. 3045.0000.1328.2046. Dang it! That got me all excited :(
    I also have the gdr3 already I didnt get an Update either.
    I'm running GDR3, as well, and my firmware matches DonnieV's firmware. No update available for me.

    Oops, I just posted this in the other thread. I didn't get the update either, and I am in the GDR3 program as well.

    GDR3 users got a small update a few weeks ago.. I bet this is what the non GDR3 users are getting.

    Downloaded the update on my L810 yesterday and it broke almost all of my apps. Nothing outside of Phone, Text, Explorer and a few others would open. Everything else - including all Nokia and Here apps had to be deleted and reinstalled. WTF?

    I checked my wife's 928 last night for updates and it said there was one. I took a screen capture of the "About" screen in settings to compare the OS version and Firmware version after the update.

    The ONLY thing that changed was the OS version from 8.0.10327.77 to 8.0.10328.78. If you do a search on these version they are the two latest versions for GDR2, but according to MS the version can vary based on operator and device. I have no idea what is in the 8.0.10328.78 OS level, but my guess only behind the scenes changes.

    If you are on the Developer Preview program and already have GDR3 your device already has this update and all the other updates after it to bring it to fully up to date with respect to the OS version. The firmware from Nokia to update the device with all of the "Black" changes is still floating in cyberspace and has yet to reach any Lumia 928 devices.

    @ TechBell, What update did you download? According to the Nokia Update Availability page, the Lumia 810 does not have a Lumia Black update available.

    Availability in North America - Nokia

    the 928 update was probably just a pre-update update to get our phones ready for black. My guess is that black will be pushed out either monday next week or the week after.

    1. Verizon does not make policies with their customers "feelings" in mind. VZW will never disclose the release date of a phone. VZW will never disclose the release date of a software update.
    2. If you are a Verizon customer who paid for a phone, you have full rights to the latest version of software that supports that phone. Check out the FCC rules and regulations for telecommunication companies like Verizon.
    3. As a Verizon customer, you are entitled to your software update the day Microsoft or Nokia releases it. As it was explained to me by Microsoft with the GDR2 release: if you don't have an update notification on your Nokia device, contact the FCC at www.fcc.gov/complaints.
    4. In 2013, I filed my GDR2 complaint with the FCC against Verizon. While I lend it more to ironic timing, GDR2 was ready for my phone within 7 days. 10 days later, Verizon called to confirm that I got my update based on my complaint.
    5. If Verizon is going to sell a device, it is their responsibility to support the device on a timely basis. The issues of "testing on our network" is not our problem. It is up to Verizon to seek earlier beta or release copies of software updates to test within a reasonable timeframe. Failure to do so will result in Verizon receiving fines from the FCC based on complaints that are filed.
    6. The FCC Complaint Website is also a handy tool for addressing Verizon billing problems, failure to reimburse, poor connectivity issues, and the data plan game that they are all so famous for (sell you a new phone with a short data plan - then when you go over your data, you end up with a data bill the same size as your phone bill).
    7. There is no reason to feel like Verizon has any kind of stranglehold on you. You are the customer. You have rights. You have choices. You have the responsibility of educating yourself on what your options are with each carrier. While US carriers have more control over phone hardware than you see overseas, you still have a number of rights - and the FCC is there to back you up to make sure you get what you paid for.


    So if you think GDR3 and Black are late due to Verizon (which it is), take the time to file your complaint. Sitting on a Verizon Forum arguing about Verizon is just what they want you to do. Negative or positive press is still press. Let the FCC hit them in the pocketbook if they are not going to make support of their line of Windows Phones a priority.

    I found this on a thread in the Verizon site. I put it on here to see what other people thought about it. I would like the update but i can wait. Ive heard of some models of phones that have had issues with it. Maybe Verizon is just making sure there arent any bugs. we will probably never know

    I did not read the whole thread, but GDR3 and Lumia Black are 2 different updates,,,, GDR3 from MS and Black comes from Lumia
    You may get GDR3 first, VZ still hasn't released Black.

    When Verizon approves the Nokia Black update (for the Lumia 928 and 822), Verizon subscribers with these phones will get both the Microsoft OS and Nokia Black firmware updates together.
