    Sure. Original thread here:
    Samsung Ativ S I8750 (WP8) Hard Reset tutorial, firmware and flashing guide - GSM-Forum



    Several notes:
    I used
    Windows 7
    Samsung I/O Drivers
    Unbranded and unlocked ATIV S(i8750) bought in official retailer in Russia.


    WP8_SMD_binary_USB_Downloader_Ver_3.2 will give you a warning about partition info.


    As usual - Use it at your own risk.

    Update:
    Yeah, there is a trick to enabling download mode.
    1. Press Vol.Up, Camera and Power simultaneously.
    *Phone vibrates->Turns on->WP Logo flashes on the screen*
    2. Release ONLY power button.
    *Phone vibrates again*
    3. Release Vol.Up and Camera
    *Download Mode screen appears*

    I am curious, I have unlocked ativ still w/o gdr2, I am still on:
    bootloader 12.12.20.17
    firmware revision number 2424.12.12.3
    hardware revision number 15.15.1.0
    radio software 2424.12.12.2
    radio hardware 0.0.0.800
    chip SOC 1.5.32

    Since you say it goes according to imei # does anyone who has gdr2 have an imei number beginning w/ 35408405*******
    I am curious because I check constantly and have not received update yet. Very frustrating.
    I am running on net10 via at&t the phone is still on windows version 8.0.10211.204

    Also, does my phone have fm due to radio software and hardware revision numbers ???

    Thanks for any help.
    I have an unlocked Ativ S whose IMEI starts with the numbers you mention and I don't have any update available. My firmware versions are same,with yours.,
    My brother owns a device with same first IMEI digits, but had different firmware versions and got the update some days ago. Hope we 'll get it soon too!

    I was wondering if this is the whole problem (firmware version being outdated), is there any way to update firmware to bring it up to date

    Ma batali to.
    Mogu ti poslati link sa EU Open FW za Ativ S-a i sa fleerom pa ga napiči bez čekanja (ako eli).
    Moj je inače prilagođen za Nordijsko trite (bio) pa sam muku mučio sa mt:s karticom za internet.

    Has anyone with Firmware 2424.12.12.3 received the update?
    I would like to hear if anyone has had update from this firmware revision number 2424.12.12.3. I had called the company I purchased my phone from and they are trying to tell me it won't upgrade, I told them that this is a winPhone 8 and that it will go up to gdr2 because it is just upgrade to os not new os, they say they have samsung experts who work there. I told them this is samsung not supporting windows and if I had known what I know now I wouldn't had bought phone, will not get another samsung product.

    ? You still have HERE Drive on your Ativ S...

    By the way I flashed mine to GDR2 yesterday since the update was not available as of now in France; nothing to complain about, works fine but I still have to test deeper. The automatic restore (settings / SMS) is amazing!

    Regarding the lack of support of Samsung, they released a lot of apps lately, and the Ativ S is one of the most pleasant cellphones in terms of usability (maybe the 925 can compete, have to test one). And performance js stunning as well...

    No, I'm on Orange (Romania). But since it's unlocked it's not related to carrier but to IMEI code probably. There is always the manual upgrade as a final solution :)
