    Does anyone knows if the Sprint Samsung ATIV S NEO is going to get version 8.1? I checked a couple of months back with Sprint and the response that I got was that when an update is available it will download automatically to my phone (great!). Or should I use the developer preview?

    Well at this point it's obvious that Samsung has been the one dragging there feet with the update. Now that they've updated AT&T's Neo I'd suspect our Sprint Neo's are next but who really knows? Sprint isn't going to tell you and Sammy will probably still play stupid. I went with the DP a few months ago and haven't had any problems.

    Thanks for the feedback, if there are no issues with the DP then I will try it.

    Just keep in mind that if you go to the Developer Preview, do not do a hard reset (read the threads here for the details).

    Sprint just updated the support page for the ATIV S Neo on Monday then again yesterday showing that the 8.1 update is now available. My phone doesn't see it yet, but I assume it's either because it's rolling out slowly to all devices or because the Developer Preview is blocking it?

    Regardless, here's the update support page -

    Find and update the software version on your Samsung ATIV S Neo

    Nice! Thanks for the heads up. I'm not seeing the update either. I really don't know if it's a slow roll out or if, like you said, the developer preview is blocking it. I really wonder how this works since the developer preview is 8.1.1 and this is only 8.1.

    Great news! As an FYI, I have never put developer preview on my Sprint Ativ S Neo, and my phone is not finding the update yet.

    Likely to be a slow roll out just like the ATIV S. I had the PfD on my ATIV S and got the update.

    Sammy finally got off they're buns and got it done. According to Sprint the update will be sent in stages. I haven't gotten it yet but I'm not worried about it.

    I reverted back to stock Monday when I saw this thread and the update on sprints website. I'm now running stock 8.1

    Thanks for confirming, kg4icg. I haven't gotten the update yet, but hopefully soon. Would you mind telling me if it fixed the Voice Roaming bug for you? It's been greyed out for me the whole time I've owned the phone, and I'm eager to get it fixed!

    Dang, you're a luck guy. Well, I'll just keep my fingers crossed that the update finally let's me turn on Voice Roaming.

    No update yet for me. I'm on the DP. Currently downloading the new DP build and hoping that maybe it will have my firmware I have been waiting for. Although I doubt it.

    edit: Still no firmware update. Why Sprint? Why????

    If you go to xdadevelopers site and type sph-i800 download, you will find the files to reset your phone to stock if it helps, easy to do.

    But is it necessary? Do we have to revert to stock before reeving the official update, or can we simply apply the update to our current DP version?

    ​Shouldn't need to revert. The update process should grab anything you don't already have (which is available of course) and apply it. This was what Microsoft promised when the DP was first released.

    Here is a question though.. Will we get the update if we hard reset and lost our mobile carrier data? As my picture shows below.

    wp_ss_20141206_0001.png

    Edit 1: I just flashed back to Windows Phone 8 so I can grab the official

    UPDATE: I kept checking for two days to see if my phone would get the official windows phone 8.1 update while on DP and I never got it.. After I flashed back the phone found the official update from sprint right away. I am guessing because my cellular data was gone from sprint I was unable to get any official updates from them. I would recommend flashing back to get the official if you are still running DP and have not gotten it yet

    After the flash back:

    Has anyone who has DP but did not hard reset gotten the firmware update through normal channels yet? I still am not seeing it and wondering if the flash described above would be necessary since I never hard reset with dP and have normal mobile carrier data. Does it really take this long for the update to roll out OTA?
