    They were telling to revert to 8.0 because at that time they hadn't released cyan for Preview for developers enrolled phones, and they knew they wouldn't be releasing it any time soon. Using the Nokia tool is the only way to quit the pfd without an update (that they were not releasing) and the tool could only give you the 8.0 os.
    OK now I'm confused. Daughter has Dev Preview Nokia 521 with her at school. When MS/Nokia finally releases Cyan 8.1 for the 521, will she have to first revert to 8.0 or can she just update from Dev Preview edition to true Cyan using the Update Phone function in Settings on the phone?

    TMo is responsible for Cyan on 521, since she is on the preview it will come to all preview phones sooner or later from MS once the bitlocker bug is solved.

    Don't downgrade her, it will more than likely arrive to preview first before TMo pulls their thumbs out of their rears and ship out Cyan for 521/920

    I have been on my Lumia 521 with a 64 gig class 10 microsdxc and PD 8.1.1 for about a month, I was dumb enough to wait for TMo instead of jumping ship immediately. Would've been on pd for three months almost instead of barely one :P.

    I have the HTC 8S, and since I installed the preview, I sometimes notice that my WiFi connection looses the internet connection. I'm still logged in with the WiFi itself, but there's no internet.
    This can normally be reversed by simply restarting the phone.

    Hello guys probably I have found a probable solution regarding the "camera/proximity sensor/accelerometer" bug.

    I have created a new topic: http://forums.windowscentral.com/showthread/309753.htm

    Not sure if anyone has mentioned this (I searched the thread but didn't see anything related), but I noticed lately that after unlocking my phone and scrolling down my start screen, sometimes the tiles would jump up a couple spots which would lead me to tapping the wrong tile. This started to happen when I have the native app folders implemented. Another thing is that my email notification vibration is only a single vibration. It use to be two vibrations. It's no big deal but it would be nice to know the difference between an email or text coming in while in my pocket instead of having to pull out my phone every time there was a vibration.

    Hi I have two problems since win8.1 update. I'm on Lumia 820

    first I can not install Here Drive+ , popup message says : (roughly translated) We have problem with installing this application. If you see this message for the first time go on and retry. If problem persists, check that your phone is up to date

    And since this app didnt install at update , two others didnt install correctly as well.
    Calendar and battery saver.

    I can not open those two apps. when i click them it does nothing.
    But calendar seems to be running because i have push up notifications of birthdays.

    When I hold 2sec on it i can not uninstall them to try to reinstall it.
    They also dont appear in "Assitant stockage" or "memory assistant". In phone -> app+game , they are not in the list. (neither on SD card)

    By the way I tried soft reset, I also tried Diagnostics app and this one does not work either. It says Exception from HRESULT: 0xC5580701

    Can you help?

    Thanks for everything

    PS : some app do not close when pushing the back button

    PPS : SE Version : 8.10.12393.890
    Microprogram version : 3051.50009.1424.0003
    Hardware version : 2.4.3.2
    Radio version : 1.0.202184.3

    Not sure if this bug/feature is related to DP, but the thing I hate is that Mail is not properly syncing. Suppose your email account gets mail "as items arrive" (for other settings it works fine). In this case, when you open a new unread email, then on the server it will be kept as unread until you will get ANOTHER new email or you press the refresh button.
    The way it works on iOS (at least for me) is that it's syncing when I just open the new email message, so it's immediately becoming read on the server.

    It's quite bothering me, because I get email notification on my iPhone even if I've read the message on my 1520.

    Happened the same on my kumia 920 DP update 1 yesterday. I tried to shot some pics and the phone saved just black images and kept saying something like: I cant display pictures. try later. After restart there wasnt any problem taking and saving pics, but those I took moment before still remained black. And then after a few hours, as I woke up, I could see them as usuall. Dont know why that happened and why those pictures became "visible"

    I had paid for a game Time Mysteries 3' on my Lumia 820 Windows phone but since the update to 8.1 it won't recognise that I've already purchased it.

    It's the format where you download the game, play it for a bit then ' unlock' it by paying. It comes up saying 'purchase record not found'.

    I don't want to pay for this twice; is there a solution, please?

    Thanks

    I started facing following issues from last two-three days:
    [1] Extras+Info started crashing.
    [2] Jumping over during Video playback(Xbox Video), use to produce an annoying beep sound.
    [3] Flow Keyboard stopped working all of a sudden.

    Resolution: Hard Reset. It was hectic as the entire process took almost 4 hours(Restoring backups and then downloading language pack to enable Cortana etc), but it solved those issues.

    I have a Lumia 521 on Metro PCS/T-Mobile. I installed the Preview for Dev and have been running Windows 8.1 for about a week. So far the only issue,pretty sure its the reason the 8.1 update hasn't come officially, is my WiFi calling is disabled. Other than that it works flawlessly. Phone hasn't lost any speed and I love the fact that I can move apps to the SD card. One of the big reasons I decided to move away from Android.

    I installed DP on a Lumia 521 and noticed that I can't power down the unit.
    I hold the power button down until I can swipe the lock screen down to power off but the unit just restarts itself. Anyone else have this issue?
    Also, the option to add comma to the keyboard is greyed out.

    Doh! That's exactly what was happening. Disconnected charging cable and off it went with no restart.
    Now howsabout a solution for the no comma option on the keyboard?
    Thanks.

    Did you maybe somehow change to a keyboard that is missing the comma? Perhaps try going to Settings > Keyboard and see what is there.

    Go to Settings > Keyboard and then click Advanced

    There you will find a checkbox that will allow you to add the comma. :)

    Thanks. I saw that option but it was greyed out.
    Turns out, mine was a non-problem in that the comma was missing from the keyboard when filling in web adress windows. Duh, yeah, no need for commas in those instances but when typing texts or Word documents, it was present. Sorry for the confusion and thanks for the road side assistance.
