    I did installed the windows 8.1 update.
    I had some problems with one of the usb ports while flushing to 8.0 GDR2, failed something, and did not completed successfully.
    I left it around 10 minutes and nothing, just the sound of the windows, in this case 7, like finding a new driver. All the required tools were installed. I removed the cable and moved to different usb port, it worked perfectly. I was afraid that i damaged it, but I didn't.
    With this update, I presume is final, the phone runs faster, I also switched a few times from photo mode to video mode, it is working fine so far.

    I don't wanna be a grammar Nazi, but edit your last 2 posts (this one and the one before), where you say "flush and flushing", change it to "flash and flashing". Flush means when you flush something down the toilet, :)

    you dont understand me :-)
    Samsung released new firmware and bootloader + WP 8.1.1 ALL IN ONE package for CSC ATO. How the hell did you update only the OS without installing FW and bootloader? You did something wrong. What can you do? Repeat the whole process again
    Maybe because I'm from Croatia? I flashed ROM with this tutorial - http://forums.windowscentral.com/sam...-wp8-1-dp.html
    Then I updated without PfD in settings center... Normally like always

    From the picture you provided to us, if that's your current "About Phone", then you have WP8.1 but with firmware and bootloader from GDR2. Cuz i got the exact same numbers when i was on GDR2. But later i see you answer to Pappale that you actually have firmware and bootloader from GDR3, according to the numbers. :)

    Why everyone of you when posting screenshot you delete the MAC address? It's not like someone will use it for something, they can't do sh!t with it cuz MAC address is unique to any network related device, it's useless to even clone it for some use. Relax a bit :)

    I think we have talk about that (workaround) so far in the last 3-4 pages, pay some attention :)
    Pappale, maki01 and some others already have been explaining that in previous posts (previous 2-3 pages)

    Leandro, is that Portuguese? If english is not so good to you, use Google Translate to translate it. One tip for Google Translate, if you write it on proper portuguese (or brazilian) you got better results in translate :)

    I already explained you
    Samsung released ALL IN ONE package this means WP 8.1.1 + FW + Bootloader
    I dont know how could you update without installing FW + bootloader. Its a very strange problem and one and only solution is to try again the whole process or just wait untill you get an update

    Would if I install my games on sd and make the upgrade process to 8.1.1 will I lose my progress ???
    I'm playing cloud riders for some time and did not want to start from scratch again ...
    How to install CSC's that are receiving updates since my Activ S only has the native ZTO CSC.
    I can only download and install the ATO CSC through the program to pass the flash?
    I already have GDR2 saved on my pc that came with this csc "GT-I8750_OXABME1_R_SIGNED.csc" together, but when I started GDR2 long ago, I left the CSC button unchecked, I believe that it remained the native CSC, ZTO.
    Sorry for the bad english, im using google translator.

    Yeah, with flashing ROM... But I don't want flash ROM 3th time.
    Some user sent me this(wp8.0 and some CSC file) - anaheiim's Space - I8750XXBME1_I8750OXABME1_R_SIGNED.rar - Tweaks Paradise
    Name of CSC file is different that I have now... Maybe I must flash ROM with this CSC?

    IM on GDR3 wp8 with SIO CSC (i guess this is the national for Slovenia). I havent done anything with the phone concerning the DP version,just wanted to wait for the final release. Now correct me if im wrong, but i only have to get the firmware update followed by OS WP8.1.1 update and that is it? No bootloaders,connecting to computers... Apparently its best to have ATO CSC to get the updates faster. So if I switch CSC,do i need to factory reset my phone of not? Im asking this because I read about both possobillities on these forums,and im not sure which is the true one.
    I also hope flashing is for those with DP modified phones.

    I think you must. Anyway, does that user who sent you that file to download, provide you with a link from the thread of the forum where he explains this thing? Usually people make a thread on some forum explaining their developing of their software of some kind. If you have been provided with a link from the forum thread where this tool is explained, please post the link here so we can be able to see it and tell you if it's safe or not.

    If you change your CSC you will be forced to factory reset your phone.

    Ah evo nam i slovenca na forumu, sad smo svi ex-yu na okupu, lol.
    - Anyway, official CSC's for Slovenia i think are MOT, OXX* & SIM.
    - Since you are still on WP8 GDR3, that means when you (if you) get the new version of WP8.1.1, you are upgrading to a newer version of the OS along with the proper Samsung firmware for WP8.1.1, not just a firmware. As Pappale said few posts before, in getting WP8.1.1 you got everything in one package (Newer OS and Samsung firmware for that OS version).
    - I guess you are a newbie in this OS, CSC, etc flashing, reverting, upgrading thing since you ask this question which is well known to most of us. So, here to explain you: Changing CSC (guess you already know how) is always causing the phone to hard reset, since it has to set the OS with the new chosen CSC, that's normal thing. So if you decide to change the CSC, back up previously everything you think is worth to backup (pictures, videos, messages, etc.) cuz you already know what hard reset (back to factory settings) means.
    Hope you understand what i told you, if you have any questions, please ask and we will answer, since i have been criticized of telling people here that it's better to first search the forum for the answer for their question rather than just bump here and ask a question that has been answered maybe just in the past 2 pages of the thread :)

    Im not actually a newbie here, ive been reading almost daily but through such a long topic some things got less clear,because so many people are telling their own stories of updating. Probably because there are two kinds of people: with DP and with GDR3.

    Thanks for the answer,you just cleared up everything that has baffled me in the past month. And i see that going from DP to final is going to be more complicated than from GDR3.
