    Or will they skip that like 8.1 and get straight to 10? Hmmm.

    Hi all,

    I have an Ativ S, ATO CSC, with the software version that you will see in the screenshot.

    wp_ss_20150305_0001.jpg

    It is running Developer Preview. If I try to search for updates, an error message will be displayed with a code (sorry, I did not write it down). I can add it later if needed.

    If I uncheck the option to be in the Developers Preview inside the corresponding app, and I go to Phone Update, it will tell me that the phone is up to date.

    I have many camera bugs (flash fires randomly, and I cannot film).

    What should I do???

    What other CSC's you have? Do you have any of the CSC that got the WP8.1.1 officially? (they are mention in the first post of this thread) :)

    If I'm not wrong, you have the GDR3 firmware with 8.1 software. So far, acording to my and experience from people on this thread it won't update to 8.1.1 official.
    SImple solution is to do as shown in post 1, flash it with GDR2 and allow it to update to official 8.1.1 and bring you the joy of you reborn phone.

    Or try changing (if possible) to some of CSCs as shown in first post and see if it will update, but most likely it won't.

    Thanks a lot for your answer! I think it has GDR3 firmware.

    Bummer, I will have to try the more complex solution.

    What happened to the Ativ S section in the forum? See http://forums.windowscentral.com/
    Since a couple of days it is gone. It only shows Ativ SE

    Also not there in section Samsung Devices

    Edit: I found it. It is now under "Windows Central Archives"
    I guess we are ancient now.

    I too am waiting for the next Lumia flagship, although the new Galaxy S6 Edge in green looks absolutely beautiful, if Samsung release a Windows variant I'm sold. However, if the ATIV S gets the 10 update, I see no reason to move I'm a hurry.

    This is kinda dissapointing to see Ativ S getting archived but ok, i really hope samsung doesn't leave us at least until 2016.

    I changed the CSC to DBT and BTU, but I do not receive the updates. It seems that flashing the phone to grd2 is the only way possible!

    Thanks for your help 🍺

    So, how much time did you let between CSC's changing before you switch to another? Sometimes it needs a day sometimes its instant, I mean the updates.

    First of all, the phone was already in ATO, and it was in that status for months, or even a year.

    When I changed to other CSCs, I did it for a couple of minutes. Last time I left it in the new CSC, without returning to ATO. A couple of hours have passed.

    Hmm, dunno if this will work but it doesn't hurt to try:
    First try changing one CSC and leave it for lets say 24 hours and see what happens, you never know.
    Second of all, try to disconnect your network (or turn the phone on without a sim or network turned on), then try with this changing CSC's, but also change the region on the phone to be corresponding to the CSC you are using, for example, if you use ATO, turn the region on your phone to Austria, if you use NEE, turn your phone region to Sweden, etc. (see this post of mine how i solved the error i got when my ATIV S got the official update 8.1.1, my phone was and still is on NEE, so i changed the region to Sweden and i manage to pass the error and install the official update). See what happens.
    I know this will take some time for you to testing, but my point here was to try all options before you flash any rom. As i see you already have many of the CSC's that got the official update, so if they didn't get it, chances they get it on the new room are none.
    If you tried everything and still not on 8.1.1 then, go ahead and flash the rom. Wish you luck! :)

    Great advice! I will experiment a bit more before taking drastic measures.😓
