    I'm going to go from past updates with my Android phones. Take the time from announcement. Half the time from when we actually got it and I come up with never! :P So I'm not holding my breath. I'll just keep rockin the DP 8.1 with the new update and hope I'm wrong!

    From announcement of Black to getting it was right about a month, which would be 10-Aug. This is assuming they (Verizon) stays consistent.

    Really want to jump to DP, but just a bit scared.

    Don't be scared. Come on in, the waters fine! It would be nice to get the Cyan firmware though.

    I did today and so far I'm amazed.

    Are either of you seeing the battery drain issue with dp on your icon? Really want to install it but I'm worried about this potential issue.
    Talk me down off the edge.

    I have the 8.1 DP on my icon and while the battery is no better it isn't any worse, ok maybe a tad, but I think a hard reset would take care of it, kind of waiting for cyan so one hard reset for all and be done with it. I got the DP installed on day one and am very happy with the improvements. Was worth it IMO.

    No significant change in my battery that I've noticed either.

    Awesome. Now go read the many, MANY posts where people DO have problems. My Icon didn't have any problems for about a week. Then after a reboot it started taking anywhere from a second to several seconds to wake up. I didn't have a heat issue but a lot of people do. Hopefully Cyan will fix this.

    The upside is that it's not hard to roll it back to 8.0. Just time consuming.

    No where did I say there were no problems. I said I installed DP yesterday and my experience has been good so far and I had not experienced battery issue that I've noticed. I don't think I need to go "read" anything.

    Its clear some have issues and some don't. Very strange how issues can pop up after working fine for awhile. I count myself lucky being in the non issue group. From what I've been reading across the web as well as here there seem to be more successes than issues with DP. I see a lot of folks with issues holding out hope for cyan to be their savior from their current troubles with DP. I wouldn't put all my eggs in that one basket. My icon is working so well I'm actually nervous about cyan maybe screwing it up.

    Hah, you worry too much, man.

    I'm in the no problems camp as well. And I think Cyan will only make things better. Polish up battery life. Speed up overall responsiveness from buttons, etc.

    What me worry? I'm a regular Alfred E Newman . I've seen some on here complaining about cyan and issues it seems to have brought with it. Again, only for some.

    I have the battery drain issue on my Icon, but I have yet to do a hard reset. Well, I did do one to go back to 8.0 to grab the firmware Verizon initially released some time back. But then I installed DP over again so that probably negated that hard reset. I have tried things like unpinning Cortana, stopping background apps, etc. But my battery takes a beating and is frustrating at times. Not enough to go back to 8.0 permanently though, lol.

    Waiting for Verizon to release updates on Windows Phone devices is nothing new...

    But I think what makes this wait considerably more irritating for me is the fact that the Nokia Lumia 930 has Cyan on it already and has since release. The Icon is the exact same hardware and the only real difference is the cell bands.

    I'm grateful to Microsoft for providing us with the Developers Preview. It's been a joy to have WP8.1 for as long as I have. But I wish Verizon would get off their asses and release the firmware that this phone deserves.

    There is another reason not to upgrade to DP. I don't want to downgrade if MS doesn't release the fix before we get Cyan. That said, I'll probably update to Update 1 as soon as I get Cyan.

    Battery life is ok here, would think it was a little better but, I have been running the DP from the day I got the phone so, nothing to compare it with. BUT, My phone gets hot to the touch after about 4-5 of constant use and after about 10,. I need it put it down, it's very uncomfortable to hold....

    I hope Cyan fixes this issue, was going to hard reset but, we are so close, might as well wait it out....

    I'm guessing we don't see Cyan until after the HTC One W8 is available. Just seems like a Verizon move to hold back to make sure a new phone is their first one available with 8.1. Plus it gives them more time to fine tune all the Verizon bloatware we'll all uninstall immediately...

    Dang I feel sorry for you guys on Verizon (my brother is). We are on Consumer Cellular (AT&T network and phones) and my wife got cyan/8.1 on her 925 and we got it on both of our backup 520's. Only waiting on my good old faithfull 820. It was worth the wait though, really surprised how nice it runs on the 520, should be really, really nice on your Icon's.
