    My phone has DBT CSC and PfD. Should I change it to BTU so I may get the firmware update or should I just wait?
    neo158 already answer you that, but if you are eager to try and have free time, you could try and see what happens. If nothing happens, you can always go back to DBT :)

    Based on previous experiences, it is like new158 said, that is depend on CSC and IMEI numbers. But we cannot know in which order they will push the update, only Samsung knows that.
    Generally it's from lowest IMEI to highest for one update and then the next update goes highest to lowest e.g. I was among the last to receive WP8.0 GDR3 but among the first to receive the firmware for WP8.1.1, I hope that makes it a bit clearer.

    It does :)
    For instance, I got the Update 8.1.1 and the firmware at the same time. go figure :)

    You and neo, thx for answering :). I will wait till Christmas and if I then still didn't get it, I will try another csc. My phone storage is as good as full, so it will take long to restore everything. That's why I am doubting 😐

    That's not necessarily the case, it just means that your IMEI is in a block that it rolled out to in that region.

    My original CSC is AUT which was Swiss. So I changed my CSC to NEE using the diagnosis tool. Then I went to check update and straight away it downloaded it. Don't think its the matter of the IMEI it's just the region of the CSC which triggers the update

    Yet others have changed their CSC and had no update, therefore the IMEI number DOES make a difference. How do you think they know what phones to roll the updates out to?

    Good news everyone!

    Completed the update to my phone it is working perfectly. Love the new UI and features, it much more refined than the developer preview I tried back May. Obviously they ironed out all the kinks.

    I regret not doing it sooner as suggested by Boris NevermorE earlier this month.

    Thanks everyone for all your advice. I am now getting to know my 'new phone' I will post my experiences.

    Attachment 88735
    Bad news everyone!

    After running WP 8.1.1 for nearly four days without any problems. My phone hanged this morning after I performed a soft reset, it is now continuously rebooting itself every minute. This is the same problem I had when I installed the WP 8.1 developer preview in April earlier this year.

    Not sure if it is related to my firmware, I will do a hard reset later on. But if its like the my WP 8.1 developer preview experience it may not work.

    I think I am screwed as my warranty has expired I cannot take it back to Samsung like back in April to get it flash back to original WP 8.

    Any advice?

    -------------------
    unbranded Samsung ATIVS S Hong Kong

    WP 8.1.1 official update, no developer preview installed.
    CSC : TGY
    Firmware :2608.13.01.1
    Bootloader version : 12.12.20.17

    Ok, lets try this, I don't know it will work but this is probably some bad app installation.
    Uninstall every app in the list that can be uninstalled. Soft reset the phone and see what happens. If it doesn't reboot on it's own again like it is rebooting now, then you are good to go. Next step is to install one app in a time (from the ones you have been installed previously). So, this means like: Install that one app, and run it, play with it for some time (around 15 minutes) if nothing happens, go to the next app, and so on and so on the same way as with the first app. This is to check if the phones behavior is due to a bad app installation. Once we eliminate that (or confirm), we will take it from there. Rather than contacts, do not back up anything else. This is the sacrifice you might need to take.
    Report back with the results.

    Flash back to gdr2 would be my advice. Start fresh, don't backup. Hard reset. Then update.

    Exactly, that was my second suggestion. Since we know he got latest firmware through TGY, so only thing he need to do is flash a rom with tha CSC like you said, and then take it up from there :)

    I thought that after your hard reset you restore your back up along with the apps. But, as Dusan Randj suggested, you should do flashing down to GDR2 and take it from there :)

    I haven't seen in this thread a listing of what CSCs are included in each of the various ROMs so I thought I'd look inside the CSC files and make a list, so here goes:

    GDR2

    GT-I8750_OXABME1_R_SIGNED.csc contains:

    ATO, BTU, DBT, ITV, XEF, XEO

    GDR3

    GT-I8750_OXACMJ1_R_SIGNED.csc contains:

    ATO, BTU, DBT, ITV, XEF, XEO

    GT-I8750OXXCMK2_R_SIGNED.csc contains:

    AUT, BSE, COA, EPL, ETL, EUR, HTS, HUI, ILO, MBM, MTL, NEE, NZC, O2C, O2I, O2U, ONE, OPS, OPT, ORX, PCL, PHE, PHN, PRO, PRT, PTR, SEB, SEE, SER, SIO, SWC, TEN, TIM, TMN, TNZ, TOP, TPH, TRA, VNZ, VVT, XEC, XEH, XFA, XFV, XSA.
