    WOW.WOW.WOW.WOW.WOW........VERIZON ACTUALLY COMING THROUGH..........8.1.1 DENIM.....

    Can anyone advise how this will affect those of us that are using the 8.1 Developer Preview. Will I get official 8.1.1 Denim automatically pushed to my settings / update, or do I need to revert back to 8.0 using the Lumia Recovery tool?

    Also, If I do have to revert back to 8.0, will my current 8.1 backup be able to be restored once the official 8.1.1 Denim update is installed?

    Thanks!

    If you are on pfd just unmark the box in the pfd app and then you get denim OTA

    tick the the DP and search for updates and get the OTA

    Denim update now available for Lumia Icon through Software Recovery Tool | Windows Central

    I used this^ because I was going to reset my phone anyway after the OTA

    I did a backup right before using the LSRT and it did a good job saving how I had my start screen setup and email accounts, I just have to reinstall some apps and put back on my music

    For best results... Run a backup and flash the Official via LSRT. NOTHING beats a clean install. Given the amount of unoptimized updates P4D gave you and the fact that official goes from Black > Denim I would highly recommend this.

    Can anyone tell me how to get a full screen shot of my entire home screen, so I can reference it in case anything goes bad with the backup / restore, etc.

    Not possible .
    So you have to take a few "overlapping" ones.

    I just downloaded Denim on my Icon. I was running DP 8.1. I did not uncheck the box in DP, I just downloaded Denim and all is fine.

    Me too. All seems fine with me. I did exactly the same as you and all is fine. If I notice some oddities from before (i.e. lag in waking up) I may go the fresh install route but for now I'm fine as is.

    I did a fresh install - backed up everything, and its soooooooo fast now - camera opens instantly from dead locked. took a while to re-download all the apps, but my restore worked well for the most part - but be aware, if your were using apps that were de-listed, they will not come back. For instance - I was using metrotalk for my Google Voice / voicemail, and now it is no longer available.
