    Disable/enable preview for developers checkbox seems to fix it ive read elsewhere on this forum. However, dont get your hopes up, it doesnt fix the Samsung specific issues (ringtone, bluetooth) we are having. Still need updated firmware.
    I tried that, didn't work :(
    Would changing my region do anything? or would I be just wasting my time?

    The region shouldn't matter, but some people have tried it as a workaround and managed to get it to work. It has a low chance of succeeding, though.

    Another trick i've read. Check first if you have "enough" free space on device. Best to have several GB's free. Then, remove microsd. Try to install update again. Fixed the problem for some people i've read.

    no problem with IE but yes, hearing "over the horizon" if I forget to change it after restarting, makes me want to throw the phone against the wall(she says in jest). here is my biggest issue, though...I was planning to purchase the ativ se late june but my ativ s is doing such a fine job now that I am having a tough time rationalizing the money spent on a new phone. poor me. considering the phone was released almost 18 months ago, that's quite something.
    Im thinking exatly the same

    Pretty slick and fast as usual. Websites seems to load faster, could it be because of the new rendering engine. One annoying bug was born with the update. Sometimes when opening basic app, such as phone or messages, the screen goes unresponsive for some seconds, and then blam! It goes where I first pressed...

    I don't want to hard reset... I don't understand why Microsoft doesn't test the update before launching it

    hard reset wont help you, You need to revert back to WP8 GDR3 and then update back to WP8.1 + Update1
    ive done it and it Works Great but took me like 2hrs. to complete the whole process

    I've had no problem with installing the updates, slightly less battery life after Update 1 but that's to be expected as Cortana is running in the background.

    Does anyone know if at some point we'll get the ability to use on-screen buttons on the Ativ S ? I think it can be useful while playing a game or watching a video so we don't accidentally press the physical buttons (assuming we can deactivate them). Personally I wouldn't use the virtual ones on a daily basis but on certain circumstances it could be useful.

    no
    on screen buttons are only for devices without hardware buttons

    How do you revert back to WP8? I know for Nokia, they use the Nokia recovery tool, does that work on Samsung devices as well or do you have to use a different application?

    no, you cant use Nokias app, you need something else
    here is the full guide only for Samsung Ativ S - I8750
    if you have Windows 8.1 and cant install the Samsung drivers, just force Windows to install unsigned drivers... guide here : http://www.howtogeek.com/167723/how-...igned-drivers/
    You will loose all your data so make a backup before doing anything. Good luck

    I don't understand why so many people are complaining that it is Microsofts Fault. It is not an OEM update you may have issues as the Handset Manufacture has not tested the update with the hardware.

    If these issues were with the device specific updates (OS + Firmware) then we would have reason to complain.
