    I just bought Ativ S today. Checked for firmware update and it installed an update. Now my firmware is 8.0.10328.78. Is this amber update ?
    there is no Amber or Black for Ativ, those are Nokia updates, I think you're confusing Amber/Black with GDR2/GDR3

    I too live in the UK, with an unbranded Ativ S. Am on O2. Would love to know if others get this update. Am itching to try it out :)
    Yeah me too buddy, Im have an Orange/EE Sim in mine and Im checking everyday now, but as of yet.. nothing. Ive never liked GDR2, it does funny things with my Ativ, such as photos are over exposed and noise in low light shadows of pics. But at least I know it hasnt hit UK yet.

    Ill keep checking :).

    Hi,
    my problem with the bluetooth connection with my carkit is getting worse.
    On a 45min drive the phone restarted itself about every 5 to 10 minutes.
    I've turned off the PIN so that the phone could boot up completly - connection works for 5-10 minutes and then reboot again.

    With GDR2 I've had some crashes but they were about once a month or so.

    OS: 8.0.10517.150
    firmware: 2424.13.10.1
    Hardware: 15.15.1.0
    wireless hardware (german phone - sorry for translation): 0.0.0.800
    Boot: 13.08.14.16
    Chip-SOC: 1.5.32

    Does anyone of you have troubles too?

    Yes, I have this strange behavior too, but it is the only thing I have noticed after GDR3 and it is so minor, it is not a problem. For some reasons ringtone rings in the earpiece for a moment after you answer the call.

    It is really strange, I have no problems with Bluetooth at all, works perfectly with both of my wireless headsets...

    I've been running GDR3 on my Ativ S for some days now and the only problem I had was two reboots since I installed it :/ Otherwise everything works smooth and fast xD I hope that I won't get any reboots in the future.

    yeah, it is really strange :(

    After a hardreset nothing changed.
    I can't connect the phone with my Surface pro2, the connection establishes and after a few seconds the phone disconnects itself.
    But if I start a file transfer in the short period of a connection, the file load completely to the phone and then its disconnected

    Technically, the Developer Preview is the final, consumer version, of GDR3/Update 3. It was just released early via the developer program so app developers could optimize their apps, if necessary. Oh yeah, and there's the fact it finally let us bypass the carrier's evil clutches! Mwa ha ha!

    Of course, the developer program doesn't get updated OEM firmware, so you're still reliant on the carrier for that (Let the complaints about AT&T withholding Lumia Black, begin!), but otherwise, the developer preview is the final version. Sorry, but you know... Technicalities...

    I personally have been rocking Update 3 on my Lumia 1020 since day 1 of the developer preview program, love it! Now I'm dying for the Lumia Black firmware, I really want RAW support!
    I hope it's not, because the Preview had a glitch that caused the phone to brick on hard reset. The issue was as follows: you did a hard reset via UI or by using a procedure that resets the phone from the service mode. Having started the phone you had been presented with a black screen with only the welcome screen showing/hiding on pressing Power button. I know it for sure as I screwed my phone and had to hard reset in when on GDR3 Preview. Now I have to flash it with GDR2 as my OS went funky.

    Anyone with fully unlocked Ativ upgraded to the consumer release of gdr3? Did unlocks and tweaks you might have done stay?

    I will try this in the following days, but I definately want to keep my third tile row and some other tweaks.
    i am also a bit unsure how to remove the developer preview

    I dont think you have to remove anything. From the developer app you only turn the switch off and then normally search for updates. Im interested in official upgrade, becuase I think there is newer radio fw.

    yes, unchecked developer preview and changed carrier code to AT, now downloading the official update.

    fingers crossed

    Wuuu keep us posted. I was afraid that if the unlocks go, it will take a lot of time to revert back. However reverting back is easy to do, it only takes time. There is the official gdr2 that can be flashed to the Ativ. At least that way its possible always to get back. But of course, after the flash need to unlock, then get the developer ugrade and then all the tweaks = time.

    update was installed without constraints. The extra row of tiles is still there and my custom tile color. and now I don't mind if I lose some capabilities.

    Nice! But then, did you even lose anything? Do the tweaking apps still work, maybe you can try to do one custom color? 3rd row, custom colors and pdf>office are the most important for me, but also more usefull tweaks might come later.

    Thanks for putting you neck out! I think I wil update later when Im back home. I have noticed the Ativ lose signal some times, and hope the update would fix it!

    Don't have pdf>office feature, can start samwp8 and try to change accent colors. I am more curious if I have full access to file system.

    Ok, tweak tools start but I can remove them,they now pop up error messages. But for now, all functions made before the update are still active.

    3rd row: yes
    Custom accent color: yes
    Full access to FS: to be tested
    Samwp8 or Wph tweaks: start but no longer functional

    Bluetooth: ok, no reboot


    Will update if anything unexpected is noticed

    Start but not functional means device is locked again. Most likely though, you can unlock again following the same steps as before when you unlocked for the first time?

    Locking my device would mean I wouldnt be able to use pdf to office. That app is very useful...

  22. Loco5150's Avatar
    Full fs probably does not work. You should be able to sideload the tools again to unlock your device, and then everything should work again...

    Will try later, my Notebook only runs win7 and for any reason I cannot run wp8 SDK. I remember that the official gdr3 update locks everything again. But no further steps can be taken unless I have access to my Win8 WS

    Ok. Maybe deleting and reinstalling the tweak apps is enough then? I might update later today also then.
