    Spotted on Windows Phone Portugal facebook group, currently trying to confirm it's not a DP version (the guy mentioned he updated through the "update my phone" option)

    Edit 2: Appears to be non-dev preview, with german CSC (DBT or similar)

    No firmware, radio or SOC version = DP (unless Samsung release the 8.1 without a proper firmware).

    maybe, if you noticed, he seems to have blacked it out... he's kind of a newbie tho, do it'd be weird if it actually was a DP... no way of checking this one out FOR SURE. The truth is that even if it's real, as usual, it'll be a ***** for the update to reach the rest of us.

    No way my next phone will be a WP (i don't blame this one on samsung, it's really weird that samsung and HTC used to be the first ones, and now that MS bought nokia it's cyan this and black that).

    If you have developer preview enabled, that's the new update that was reported today. Nothing new, though I'm curious if it fixes anything.

    Yup, I can confirm that as well. MMS crippling is still there as well. Meh, oh well.

    so, does it update anything at all? Getting more tired of MS itself (not WP as much) every passing day.

    It fixes some bugs, but the last update is mainly a preparation update for WP8.1.2 where you can expect sorted settings, toggle for data connection in the notification menu and lets hope for other new cool features.

    Hello,

    I've updated today and I can confirm that the latest version does fix the camera issue in ativ s. Here's a screenshot with the version I have.

    LATER EDIT: Sorry, after restarting my phone the bugs are still there.
    Only some performance improvements, that's it!

    Wow, you are right, it looks like the camera is working now after the latest DP update!

    EDIT: Nope, the bugs are still there, should have tested more before making such a claim.

    The camera bug is still here, like tooly26 say "still camera crashes after a few changes (3 or 4) from photo mode to video mode and back". When firmware from Samsung is release then will disappear the camera bug, it's firmware related, not OS bug.

    I had firmware 13.5.1 so I updated the firmware, 1st ensure your 8.1 settings are all backed up
    do a search on below (sorry I'm not able to post links until I have posted 10 posts apparently)
    flash-different-stock-rom-samsung-ativ-s/ then go to link that has theunlockr in the web address.
    use the flash tool to install wp8 but with gdr3 (firmware 13.11.2 ), I had some driver issues on a windows 8.1 machine so tried a windows 7 laptop which worrked fine. To get phone into downloader mode can be tricky.

    Once you have installed GDR3, then before restoring any online settings, install preview for developers app, get updates (you will need to install a few updates before the latest WP8.1 release appears then restore online settings by performing full reset on phone (by going into settings -> about "reset your phone" and after reset you are asked if you want to use backup, the just choose latest backup.

    You can post the links, just copy/paste the url here without "http://www.", we'll figure it out from there :)

    But the GDR3 2424.13.11.2 still has issues with the camera and DP? Is this correct, or does the GDR3 firmware work with DP and all the phone functions work?

    Yes it does. I don't know about GDR1, but GDR2 and GDR3 have the same problems as far as I understand at least

    I don't quite understand your question, can you re-phrase it? There is no GDR3 in WP8.1. GDR3 is for now only on official WP8, not WP8.1. WP8.1 DP is Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview, a new upgrade from Microsoft, only thing we miss is the firmware from Samsung.
    Edit: Oh ok, i understand your question now reading SPIFF Costa's response. I will add that it doesn't matter if you go from WP8 GDR1, 2 or 3 to WP8.1 DP, the bugs are the same. As i said, this bugs can be solved once Samsung release their own firmware.

    Yep, sorry, could have been more clear. Did clarify things for me though, bugs are still present no matter which version of WP8 and Samsung firmware you were on before.

    I didn't get OS update since 8.0.102112.04!
    Not to mention 8.1. My OS version is so old, that I don't meet the requirements to download the 8.1 developer's preview.
    Does anybody knows why?

    You might want to read at least the last 10 pages of this thread, your answer is there, trust me :)
    Guess you are stuck with GDR1. Yet, how to upgrade to GDR2 and GDR3 is also answered few times in this thread, I did explain several times too, but i am too lazy now to do that again. :) No hard feelings! :)
