    I also agree with the thread opener. This is not whining that the DP has issues and it is not about me thinking that I have the right to get everything NOW.



    This is about communication between Microsoft and their most involved users. The people who installed the DP are Microsoft evangelists and pleasing them is in Microsoft's own interest. Nothing is better pr than pleased geeks.



    Microsoft is gambling with our trust for no reason, all we want is transparency.



    And no, I will not downgrade to update my 920. Leo Laporte managed to brick his device trying to downgrade it. And I have no interest in loosing a ton of data hidden in some apps.

    When we signed up we were all aware of the risks of running DP, inevitably there will be problems which will be rectified in time and we except that. Unfortunately Microsoft in its wisdom opened up this program to every man and his dog and now has to face the consequences of that decision. The majority are here so they can have the latest OS, denying them cyan without explanation or time frame only inflames the situation.

    Not surprised he bricked it.... Cyan is not needed people until they fix the update for DP...be happy.

    It's been more than a month since MS halted the cyan update for DP... getting frustrated especially since Cyan is now available on my carrier.

    Only.... Microsoft are the ones ENCOURAGING people to install the dev preview. And this problem is not a problem that stems from the software being labeled a preview, its because the update process has a problem with devices with encrypted storage. So let's not overplay this "you signed up to be a beta tester" theme, if people were complaining about instability/bugs that would be a valid response but it doesn't apply here.

    If you go t look at the terms and conditions at App Studio we all agreed to they are no longer there.
    I think the original said we could directly install new firmware when it was released.

    Its just laziness mate. Don't forget that with cyan most of you guys get NOTHING. Only 630, 930 and 1520 owners benefit I believe. There are little or no changes to other models.

    I think Living Images and Bluetooth 4.0 are enabled with Cyan amongst other things.

    Guys everyone is right here and as much as we signed up DP, we would appreciate updates on how and how long we have to wait for a fix and if indeed there will be one. If there is no fix, then let approve or confirm that downgrading is the only option that way we know.

    There were over a million installs of 8.1 DP. The original terms said you could update directly to Cyan and the release version of 8.1. MS has to do their job.

    Guys, I don't understand this: Why don't you just reinstall new lumia cyan on your phone with nokia software recovery tool, and then re-enable DP if you want?

    Any particular reason we should be in a rush to lose data, spend hours restoring apps and media for basically 1 feature, BT 4.0?

    And risk bricking it just to get told "that was your risk, you knew what you signed up for" by the forum?

    No. I would much more prefer that Microsoft keeps their promise. And while we wait they also could try some transparency how long it will take.

    I have done this on three different phones and lost none of the data except viber messages. Didn't spend hours, it took much less.

    Time will vary, depending on how much media you have to restore and apps you have to reinstall and configure but as you confirm, data loss is inevitable. That is unacceptable to me when you take into account what cyan actually brings to a device like my 1020 ie basically nothing.

    You and others seem to be missing the point. There is nothing wrong with the DP or the update under normal circumstances, its when Bitlocker is part of the equation that issues arise, as clearly evidenced by those who were able to update before it was pulled. And this issue affects only a minority of WP dev preview users. For the majority of users who dont have bitlocker if the update was released we would update with no problems so while its understandable that Microsoft wants to fix the problem the reality is that most people arent even affected so this ridiculous stance that we should waste time and lose data makes absolutely no sense.
