    It won't say anything about downgrading or 8.0. The tool is used for downloading and restoring the latest official firmware + OS. I doubt Nokia has publicly pushed out an 8.1 firmware yet, so NSU should download latest official firmware + OS, which is around 4 GB.

    EDIT: When I used NSU to downgrade it downloaded and flashed: RM927_1028.3539.1402.1042_RETAIL_nam_vzw_100_42_374745_prd_signed
    ok I saw that it was .1042 which the same as on my phone and assumed it was going to give me 8.1. thanks

    It was a Nokia update. They changed the Verizon boot splash to an orange one from the white one. They also added the little arrow thingy to the WiFi symbol in the status bar. That's what I've noticed so far. No DTTW yet.
    what is that arrow?

    My WiFi range was cut in half almost when I updated to 8.1 and went back to normal after rolling back. The 8.0 range is not as good as my past 720 but it's not bad.

    I'm wondering if this new firmware fixes any of the issues with 8.1...
    no...fixes the WiFi issue for 8.0 tho.

    "...devices on certain networks now have little arrows for Wi-Fi and cellular data. They go ‘active’ when data is being transferred at that moment. Think of a router when the data lights flash during data transmission."

    What do those arrow icons mean on my Windows Phone? | Windows Phone Central

    Now why would our phones have differences in the app versions? It seems you have several newer versions than my phone has, even after today's update.

    [Edit: just noticed you have a "Build ID" and I have a "Configuration ID". What does that mean?]

    Have you updated extras+info? Use SysApp Pusher and check for updates if you haven't. The orange "t" in the bottom is because I used the Tapatalk app to post.

    Thanks! That's a handy app to have; I figured the store would do the comparisons and trigger update alerts. Guess not.

    Still a lot to learn coming from Android.

    same here, if people report a noticeable improvement it'll probably be worth the inconvenience of flashing to 8 and back to 8.1 for the firmware. wireless is just dreadful on the icon
    Do you actually lose wifi completely, because on my icon my wifi indicator bars go completely gray at times by my connection is fine and its not an issue.

    I did not know you could roll back to 8.0. I am not having any issues though so wont matter. But I am thinking of getting the Icon in the next couple weeks... What kind of issues? performance or personal pref?
    For me, no major issues. I'm running WP8.1 on my Icon and there is a slight delay when waking the phone (about a second). My battery life got worse, but then I did a hard reset and did not restore from a back up. I've been having better battery life since.

    Otherwise, nothing noteworthy for me. There are several other OPs that are having issues with WP8.1 on their Icons though. The majorites issues that I'm having are app related not OS related. My Onstar RemoteLink won't stay logged in and keeps telling me to accept the EULA every time I run it. There are a couple other apps that are kinda wonky right now, until the developers get them updated.

    Oh. If you are used to using Glance, then expect to be disappointed on that. The Icon and the 930 do not support it. For me it wasn't that big of a deal, but there were a few who were rather upset about the lack of Glance support.

    Evidently it was for WP8.0 users. I checked and there was no update available.

    Just finished today's update on my VZ Nokia Lumia Icon and one thing that I am happy about is I can now get Nokia Beamer. Previously I was stuck with Nokia Screen Beamer. When I would try to get Nokia Beamer from the app store it said my phone was unable to use it. NOW I have the enhanced version that includes both Share Nearby and Share Remotely. It was frustrating be my daughter has an ATT 1020 and she had the newer version. I did have to go to the Store and search for Nokia Beamer but this time it offered me an update instead of turning me away.

    It's Lumia Black. At least that's the update I got today.

    tcman88: is it a good idea to post your phone's critical info (IMEI, MEID, MAC and SIM IDs?) on a public forum? Maybe I'm just paranoid, but....
    That is not necessarily private information; at least in of itself. All it does is identify the phone, not the person. And besides, if you ever forget a password or PIN, just ask the NSA if they could provide that for you. :-D

    Mine also matches Dreamspell, except for Build ID, everything else is the same. I'm running WP8.1 DP

    running 8.1 dev here, and not getting the firmware update.

    As for those that downgraded to 8.0 for performance issues... I had the same performance issues on my upgraded 8.1.. I did a factory reset on the 8.1 and all the issues went away..

    Given the terrible wifi performance on 8.1, I'm rolling back to 8.0, updating the firmware and then updating to 8.1. Will let you guys know how it goes, hopefully it fixes things

    Downgraded to 8.0 to install the firmware, reupdated 8.1, then did a hard reset. Took alot of time. So far I notice wifi is more stable, stays connected where It normally would drop out. That's all I know so far.

    I also went back to 8.0 to install the update and then reinstalled 8.1. It made no difference.

    Currently in the process of a rollback/update/reinstall WP8.1. I also had terrible WiFi reliability so I will report back with findings.

    Not noticing a huge difference, will have to wait until Monday to test because my work Wi-Fi is barely functional now with 8.1 and works flawlessly with my iPhone and my 928..
