    strange, I can open diagnosis menu (but I don't have ATO CSC, neither before update I had ATO)
    p.s. with 8.1 via DP you get a new firmware?
    firmware 2424.14.6.1

    Lol, no problem. I'm writing an article right now for the front-page, just trying to bring some of the jargon down a bit for regular people. There's lots of explaining, lol.

    Re: Contacting Samsung, unfortunately even we do not have good contacts with them. They operate very differently than say Microsoft/Nokia or even HTC.
    Yeah, unfortunately that's so true. Anyway thanks for the front page article, now it's going to be a mess here with questions, lol.
    However we can handle it as so far, it's a very friendly thread, altho majority of ATIV S i8750 users are coming from Europe, Brazil and some parts of Asia. You did a good explanation in the article, thank you again :)
    Cheers.
    P.S. Ok wondering ATIV S i8750 users, hit us with your quiestions now :)

    Maybe, just maybe they are silent with this as one kind of test the new firmware, once they recieve positive feedback, they already have the firmware, but small changes will be made for the region thing and they will push it world wide. :)
    I am too optimistic, right? LOL

    We're looking to post something but TBH, this is confusing as hell for general audiences. Try explaining to the masses "Make sure you check your CSC first, because only ATO devices are getting it!" I mean, 99.5% are going to be "like, WTF does that even mean", lol.

    Also, I have an unlocked ATIV S, not even sure the CSC and I have not gotten the update either (not on DP, but on GDR3). This news seems very incomplete at this point.
    Yeah i agree.. It would be nice if there was some official word from Samsung.. Just to confirm the news. Or shed some light on who will be getting the update, how and when... But it seems that all Samsung related news reaches the end users through informal channels, haha. They don't seem to roll with official statements about Windows Phone..

    Regarding the CSC 'difficulties', u r right i guess. Since i work in ict, I got the concept of 'the CSC thing' pretty fast I guess (pushing updates over a network in waves, limiting it to a specific target group at first etc etc - typical ICT practise) but i can see it could be kind of difficult to explain this concept to a general audience - with not everyone too tech savvy perhaps. Still, I want to compliment you on the article. Judging from the responses, i think most people do get your explanation. That's a good sign right there i guess.

    Also, thanks on spending time to actually write the article with this little information available... Lately, it seems to become more and more common in the responses to Samsung related articles to just blatantly bash Samsung. I know the company doesn't exactly prioritise on "our" OS, but with all the bashing going on at the front page, it's nice to have an article reminding the Samsung users that they aren't being completely forgotten by Samsung. So, thanks again Daniel! :)

    Damn Samsung :( Why you don't want to update phones withou ATO?
    Patience, young grashopper.. Give it some days.. Took some days for other CSC's to receive GDR3 after ATO/NEE too when it was just released... ;)

    Well, it certainly is an honour to have Daniel himself in our topic :) Anyways, thanks for letting me know that update is useless and i was thinking about why you didn't write an article before. It really looks confusing and is time consuming, but we can only blame samsung for that. It really is shame that Samsung as company is so quiet in windows phone world, and is non cooperative even when it comes to official things.

    Last minute doubt... I have an update, downloaded yet not installed. Will it stay there forever unless I hard reset, right? I don't see any abort option ...

    That test of the critical update system actually fixed some minor issues on my ATIV S on the PfD. The popping sound through the headphones was fixed for me along with the excessive battery drain and the phone seems to have no issues with the blank tiles when scrolling now.

    Anyway, Dragone, can you post screenshots from your phone providing us with OS version, Firmware Revision Number and Bootloader Number? Don't write them here, just make a screenshot. :)
    If this is true, then this is an awesome news guys (for the one on DP) :)
    Dude you completely missed my posts, didn't you ?
    I suggest you to read again the last pages of this thread, page 45 to be accurate :)

    Anyway the Critical Update has nothing to do with Samsung, of course.

    I can confirm that I didn't experience none of the bugs caused by AtivS + Windows Phone 8.1.1 since the firmware update (camera, ringtone etc etc)

    No dude i haven't missed your posts, cuz the moment i wrote that post you already had posted the screenshots, and i forgot to go back and edit my post. :) simple mismatching with time :)
    Did you read the post after that post of mine? Guess not :) Go read it :)
    Guess i need to go and edit my post, right? or we can leave it like that? What you suggesting Dragone?

    I posted the screenshots a couple of days before your posts, so the moment you asked for them they were already published the day before. This is no time mismatching problem . But hei, you can still believe what you want to.

    If you say so :)
    But did you saw on which post i did reply? to Pedro Nogueira1. And screenshots you upload you were saying that they were before first update, second update, etc. Next time be more clear.
    Wow, i was just answering to Dragone and requested a screenshots from him for confirmation and BAM, you posted this, LOL.
    This is good, very good news. Now all that have this like Dragone & Pedro Nogueira1, we are expecting to give us a good feedback, what's working, what's not, impressions, blah blah blah.
    As you can see i did acknowledge that you have the latest update on PfD. But i guess you skip that part. I do admit that i didn't saw it first time. Nevermind, forget it! :) it's all cool

    That in the screenshot you provided is WP8 GDR3.
    Hi Boris.

    Yes, I am currently on WP 8 GDR3. It has been running smoothly with no problems for the last six months. But I do like the new features of WP8.1 and would really like to update my phone.

    Anyway, I took a gamble and downloaded the update out of curiosity. It turns out to be a pre WP8.1 patch which needs to be installed before I can upgrade to full WP 8.1

    wp81.png

    I think I will wait and see if there are any further reports from other Hong Kong ATIV S, WP 8 GDR 3, CSC: TGY, and Firmware :2608.13.01.1 that have already installed the latest updates. Before I go ahead and take the plunge.

    Please share your experience and most importantly, does the update include Samsung firmware update.

    As I mentioned before, I tried the WP 8.1 Developer Preview and it messed up my phone.

    About the experience with the new WP8.1.1, you should really browse few pages back, there are people that get ti and shared their experiences, I am still on WP8 GDR3 with NEE CSS, waiting to see when it will get the official firmware, altho i do have ATO among 40 other CSC's on my phone. So, whatever update will come your way (but not a PfD update) just install it. Make screenshots on the About page before update, the Update page information (that updates are ready to install) and also make again a screenshot of the About page after the installation completes and your phone reboots, so we can confirm that beside ATO, TGY is getting the same official Samsung firmware 8.1.1.

    I have the latest (DfP) update (the bugfix one), but the firmware, hardware, radio software and bootloader version numbers are not completely up to date, compared to some other posters screenshots. Is this due to not having the official update yet (I'm on CSC:NEE, Nordic/Norway)?

    Yes. The only official update so far is for CSC:ATO. And yet to be confirmed if those on PfD are receiving the update.

    Hard reset to fix battery issue, Geo.
    Hard reset done, now the battery seems to be ok, it lasts around two days using only surfing on the internet. I also have had a few apps on, deactivating them helped a bit, for instance the GPS was on, battery eater:)
    The problem is the information on the battery saver, no matter when the battery has been charged, I am getting the time since last charge one hour ago, in spite of charging it 18 hours ago! The battery saver I keep it off.

    That bug in Battery Sense was caused by the switch off of the Daylight Saving Time. Happened to Nokias as well.. ;)
