    why did you use GDR1? Update process from GDR1 to WP8.1.1 will be long.. extra long :D
    Next time use GDR2
    Well, he DID mention why he did that.. It's just a matter of.. Reading skills i guess..

    Give him a slack, it's sunday, an official day of laziness :) and he probably partied hard last night, so he is still hang-overing, haha.
    Pappale, you rock :)

    Anyway, i got so many questions in my Inbox here since this official samsung firmware was rolled out why i still haven't update my ATIV S which is still happily running WP8 GDR3 and i got so use to it by far. Anyway, to avoid answering you individually, here is to clear for all of you there sending me those messages:
    The main reason why i still haven't upgraded on WP8.1.1 even tho i have ATO is that I am running on NEE CSC and for you who know and doesn't know, you do remember that ATO and NEE were the only remaining CSC's that people can go on WP8 GDR3 from GDR2. So, so far we know that ATO can bring you up to WP8.1, so i am waiting now to see if NEE picks up the official firmware, so i can share with all that have NEE and don't have ATO on their ATIV S's, so they don't go through a hastle of flashing new CSC's and risking bricking their phones. Hope I cleared that for you guys :)

    Cheers.

    Gotta appreciate Boris' decision to stay behind and ensure NEE users don't brick their phones. I expected NEE and BTU to follow immediately after ATO...i hope its only a matter of days. I too did not yet update, but thats not due to selfless reasons like Boris'.

    I used this tutorial:
    http://forums.windowscentral.com/sam...-wp8-1-dp.html
    but, instead GDR3 Firmware, used GDR2.
    Which ones??

    Haven't found any specific files. The tutorial specifies which files for GDR3 but can;t find which ones for GDR2 and there are a few..

    Finally updated my Ativ S. I did downgrade to 8.0 gdr2, installed the csc package that possessed the ATO and was updating. Reinstalled the game Cloud of Riders and to my surprise everything was there, the way I left!

    which files did you choose to download from yandex.ru?
    I just downloaded
    GT-I8750_OXABME1_R_SIGNED.csc and
    I8750XXBME1_I8750OXABME1.rar will these work??

    found it all the files needed where inside the rar file. I chose the *XABME1.rar cause I had I8750OXACMJI on my phone. so I thought it was the better. Should I try the OTA in CSC or better leave it to XEF that it is...

    yeah I've paired my ativ s with a fitbit flex, a bluetooth 4.0 only device, before the update I wasn't able to see the device.

    I've used the mediafire package gdr2 + ato csv on page ~ 33, it tooks 382 sec to flash and about 2 mins to reboot the phone, the most long part is installing the 2 update I've spent about 1h 30m to update to 8.1.1. Also remember to charge the battery, before flash was 92% and with 8.1.1 was 50% ;)

    Just wondering what happens to the apps installed on the sd card. Have removed it from the phone until everything is done. But what I should do afterwards. Format it or the apps will be installed??

    Those apps will be wiped from the SD Card. It's a security measure designed to prevent piracy.

    He had reasons why he start from GDR1, cuz he had problems not being able to see which CSC he is running, there were no infos, even tho he hard reseted for several times. It doesn't matter which one what time it took, it's the main goal that counts, and that's Getting WP8.1.1 :) Anyway, how you doing Pappale, all good? :)
    And to all others: Stop fighting or arguing, we are here united for one goal and we all know what that is. Otherwise I'll kick your asses, haha, ok? :)

    Pappale just want to say that revert to GDR2 is the same thing (not need to revert to GDR1) but i think is better megadragon998 to edit the first post (if he make to edit) with tutorial "How to get WP8.1.1" and everybody will read just first post. What you think
