    OK, it seems most of the talk is (again) about 8.1/Cyan being released for Developers. That doesn't help Joe Customer who can't get Developer versions or doesn't want to risk voiding a warranty with an unsupported download. The only thing that really matters is when 8.1/Cyan will be released to the Verizon customer base at-large. Wake me when that happens.

    Uh... you do realize that the WP8.1/Cyan for developers is identical to the "official" WP8.1/Cyan released by Verizon right? And ANYBODY can down the DP version. All they need is the Preview For Developers app installed and registered.

    Uh... you do realize that the DP version is just that...a developer version, not-ready-for-primetime.

    The developer preview of 8.1 was the same, but I think DP is a couple updates past that now.

    Wrong, wrong, wrong....Verizon releases Cyan (WP8.1 PLUS THE FIRMWARE NONE OF US HAVE (why doesn't anyone understand that part?)) once, to all its users.

    Is this a beta program? Am I going to get beta bits that are full of bugs?
    No. This is not a beta program. It is a way to get the same bits that the manufacturers get, ahead of whenever your carrier decides to release them. As was demonstrated when this program started, there were those who claimed it was not going to be the final release, and those who claimed it was. As it turned out, those who believed it to be the final release were correct. The build that was given to the Preview for Developers participants was the same build that the manufacturers got from Microsoft. There is no guarantee that this will always be the case, as it is always possible to find a bug and issue a late release, but this definitely is not a beta program. The software being delivered is meant to be ready for prime time.

    I'm on DP too, but nothing in Denver. If it's official I'll roll back to 8.0 once I get home.
    Why roll back to 8.0.

    Tc wasn't trolling us. Sometimes plans change.

    We'll find out more tomorrow. All I know is i'm backing up my phone tonight in preparation.
    I'm having trouble telling when we're being sarcastic at this point.... Does TC actually know anything? Is there any reason to take him/her seriously?

    Wait I just excitedly scrolled through two pages about an update being released and there is no update? ~|~

    Was this update suppose to be Cyan or was it just another prep / tease update for further support of said firmware?

    If you've been here long enough, you would know TC is on the inside at Verizon and has been deadly accurate up until this point. I am very confident that cyan was supposed to come out and there was some kind of change of plans or delay that TC is probably finding out today and will report back.

    Agreed...

    Except for that one deal with the Red Nokia Lumia 928

    I think that this will be put on schedule for Thursday, like the past two weeks where they unleashed a bunch of new phones and carriers to get the cyan update. Hopefully this pans out because my phone had been acting poorly lately on DP 8.1. Crossing my fingers

    why do some people want to roll back to 8.0. I thought the problems were all fixed where you didnt have to.

    Speaking of Droid. I used the Droid Maxx last week.... That battery is awesome. That was the best battery life I have ever experienced. It stayed just as slim as the icon. . The only problem was that Windows wasn't on it.

    Because the last firmware Verizon released for the ICON was initially only available for those running stock 8.0. Some weeks later Verizon made the update available for those running DP 8.1. So it's a toss up whether it will be available for those running DP 8.1 or 8.0. I rolled back last night anyway. Although my wifi was much better after my last roll back and update to DP 8.1. I still had the battery drain, the power button delay came back and I was beginning to get the resume rolling dots when turning the phone on. No biggie for me though as I don't play many games besides Monopoly. I think most people don't want to lose their game progress by rolling back.

    I've been lurking the thread for a couple weeks now and here's my understanding of the situation for those running Developer Preview (DP)

    The firmware on Verizon's Icon is modified for Verizon's network and so no Cyan update for the Icon will be released through MS's developer channel. The Windows DP 8.1 software runs fine on the Icon, but users will need to roll back to Verizon's WP 8.0 image to receive the Cyan firmware update from them. Afterwards users can move back to WPDP... at least until Denim, which will probably require another roll back, but at this rate, Verizon won't release Denim until we're all dead and gone.

    It's odd to me that the firmware would be different for Verizon... i thought the point of going to SIM card was to avoid such things. But what the hell do I know.

    SWEET! I haven't been here long at all, so I didn't realize we had a man on the inside.

    Sniff, Sniff.....for some reason I am smelling BullSh*t here. 100+ days later and we are still here day by day waiting for Verizon to get off their a$$ and release a update.

    You don't think it's BS ? Prove me wrong as here in the East Coast (RI or CT),

    Could this then be the reason for the delay then? A roll out for all vs. two versions? I think Verizon and Microsoft know that it would be quite a Hasselhoff to have to roll back then update for each Nokia firmware update that is released. Sure that may mean Verizon would have to create two of their own prep firmwares possibly but that would be better then rolling back each time. I mean Denim "should" be around the corner next and I would have to roll again?

    Just saying...

    We used too. Then they fed him a fake release date as a method to confirm his identity; he's probably in Vz jail or dead.

    Yeah, not sure how that works as far as packaging the rollout or if it requires separate firmwares but I think AT&T users had to roll back for CYAN too IIRC.
