    Dunno if it is proper to start another thread about it ...
    Does it work on Ativ T899m?

    I think it should, nothing I've done is specific for Ativ S

    EDIT: YET I do NOT know the firmware situation you have for T899m.

    You are using custom firmware for your device, that is specific to your version of ativ.

    I supposed so. The last T899m firmware caused boot looping too ?

    It is not offered through PfD program - I am still on 14203.306 PfD.

    My firmware is old as well - 2212.13.11.2

    As far as I am aware, our phones are identical except for that fact that t899m is LTE and does not have radio hardware, correct me if I am wrong.

    Maybe you should look for any feedback specific for your device on the WindowsMania.pl forum.
    I wouldn't do it otherwise, if I were in your shoes.

    Hello everybody! I'm following the updated guide of the first page of this thread. I bought a used Ativ S about a year ago and it had PfD 8.1 on with all its glitches with the camera etc. Of course the guy who sold it to me didn't tell me anything about it. Getting back into topic, I think the fourth and fifth steps have to be switched because the program won't let you select the green folder before the orange (looks more like yellow to me) one. I have waited till now but I finally made up my mind and decided to go revert to GDR2 and get a working phone, with a working camera and with updates, which I never got. I hope all goes well, otherwise I will ask for your valuable help!

    Hello Luca, welcome to our thread. I hope i am not writing this too late and that you haven't start the process already. In case you haven't start it yet, can you please provide us with screenshots from the areas that you have questions and doubts about it so we can look into it and figure it out and help you with guidance. Me personally, didn't need the processes in the opening post of this thread because i got my latest WP8.1.1 naturally over OTA updates. I didn't revert back to any GDR. The only tweak i did was when I change my native MBM CSC to NEE and stick with that till today. The NEE got my phone from GDR2 to GDR3 and up to WP8.1.1 (GDR1 or Update1) 3 months ago. But, many of our friends here successfully got the official WP8.1.1 with the methods from the opening post. So my suggestion to you is to first read the thread from page 50 (or it was 51 or 52, i can't remember now) till last page to know more about the methods in opening post. Read the experiences people got with this first, then decide how you gonna do it. We will be here to answer any question you have (hopfuly). Since this is your first post here and you need to have at least 10-11 posts to be able to upload screenshots (or pictures), I will ask you if you can provide us with this things first:
    - Current OS Version (we know it's on PfD, but we need the number)
    - Current Firmware Revision Number
    - Current Radio Software Number
    - Current Bootloader Version
    - Current CSC you are running

    Thank you Boris. I have been lurking in these forums for the last six months so I kind of know all of you already, though I posted today for the first time ;-) I had passed the Ativ S to my wife and went back looking for a decent rom for my LG P880 in the meantime. Then my wife got sick of the camera glitch etc and yesterday she finally told me to go ahead and fix the phone, even though she would lose her Whatsapp messages and stuff.
    Changing the CSC didn't help, the phone never got one update from the 8.1 DP state in which it was since I got it. Now it's making its first update (the procedure to revert to GDR2 worked just fine). Right now it's installing this: 8.0.10501.127; 8.0.10512.142; 8.0.10328.78; 8.0.10492.116; 8.0.10517.150. I believe it's installing the GDR3, right?

    This is small update, it's prepping your phone for the WP8.1 update. always read what the update will say.
    Prepping your phone for wp8.1 will look like this:
    wp_ss_20141030_0006.png

    Then your phone will restart and will pick up WP8.1 along with official Samsung FW (in one package) that will bring your phone up to WP8.1.1, something like this:
    wp_ss_20141030_0012.png

    When you all finish, come back and tell us did you do it or having problems. :)

    I wanted to post a few pictures about my phone software version etc but it won't let me because I have too few posts. Ok, the good news is that the camera finally works as it should, going back and forth to the video, but the bad news is that, after that first update, it says the phone is updated and it won't find any other update. So I'm stuck with WP8.0 now. Any suggestions?
    Right now this is what I see in the information page:
    SO ver: 8.0.10517.150
    Firmware rev: 2424.13.10.1
    Hardware rev: 15.15.1.0
    Radio software: 2424.13.9.1
    Radio hardware: 0.0.0.800
    Bootloader: 13.08.14.16
    SOC: 1.5.32
    that is exactly what I had when I was with the DP, except the fact that there was no radio and the SO version was 8.10.12397.895.

    Yes, now you are on GDR3. Don't worry, if the update doesn't hit you now, will hit you later, or maybe tomorrow.
    Can you please tell me on which CSC are you now?

    XEF is still on WP8 and maybe it wont get the new update (8.1)
    what now?

    You need to change your CSC to ATO... how to do it? (2 options)

    1. Flash your phone (yes, again. You need to Flash with EU ROM w/ CSC ATO) with WP8 GDR2 - link Samsung ATIV S I8750 Rom flashing! | Windows Phone 8 Development and Hacking | XDA Forums

    maybe your 1st. try was with a ROM without ATO so selecting ATO changed nothing because the ROM had only XEF, XEE and other CSCs

    or

    2. change your CSC in WP8 - dial ##634# from the phone pad wait few seconds... a new black Window will open with a numpad, enter this code *#321647335 and select ATO

    If you cant see ATO than you need to Flash your phone, follow option 1

    Thanks Pappale. I had changed the phone CSC from XEF to ATO a few months back after I saw this article Samsung ATIV S getting Windows Phone 8.1 Update? Kind of (I can't copy the link because I have few posts) but to no avail.

    Now I'm doing it again and the phone just rebooted and it has the two gears turning right now. I hope it works...

    Like Papale said, that's normal. Every change of any CSC will result with factory reset, do remember that in the future.
    We'll wait for the final results for your update process. :)

    I'm back gentlemen. What I have now is this:
    Software: Windows Phone 8.1 Update
    SO ver.: 8.10.14157.200
    Firmware rev.: 2424.14.9.3
    The rest hasn't changed.
    Now it says the phone is up to date and can't find any other updates. Do I have WP 8.1.1 or is it still 8.1?

    Congratulations, you have the official WP8.1.1 (or in other words Windows Phone 8.1 Update).
    Just for your information, here is how you make a difference between WP8.1 and WP8.1.1:
    WP8.1:
    - You can't make Live Folders on Start Screen
    - In OS version is says Windows Phone 8.1

    WP8.1.1:
    - You can make Live Folders on Start Screen
    - In OS version it says: Windows Phone 8.1 Update

    Just some other info that might get you confused. Some users on WP8.1.1 might have Firmware Revision Number: 2424.14.9.3 (like you have), or 2424.14.9.4 (like I have). That is the same version, neither is newer or older than the other one. That last number differentiate the region, nothing more.
    If you notice some battery issues or similar, don't worry, that's normal, the battery itself is adjusting to the new OS. After a week or two, it will be fine.

    Enjoy your newly reborn ATIV S with latest WP8.1.1

    I haven't been on here for a while, however, I did read the first page and a few other pages for some understanding. So I just wanted to clarify, my ATIV S have the CSC ATO as an option, so does that means I can just switch to the CSC ATO region without Flashing and I'll be able get the WP 8.1 update? My phone is a original CSC XEO (Poland) version with WP 8.0 GDR3. Thanks guys.

    You can try with ATO. ATO was among the first that got WP8.1.1.
    What other CSC's that are mention in the first post that got WP8.1.1 you have on your phone?
