    Don't worry, if something big isn't changed, we should be able to install it the way grozaman posted here.

    Nah, i am not worrying, just don't like the fact that we are still being SES-ed (refer to your profile picture ;) , for others, ignored) ) by MS and Samsung.

    Well, remember few months ago when we were all like "Well, guess we are not having WP8.1.1, Lumias started to get it, MS and Samsung forgot about us...." and then suddenly we were upfront from most of the Lumias for getting the latest and greatest. LOL

    After the last firmware update I switched on the PfD for a moment, resulting in below OS update (in Dutch this time).
    Not much difference, just improvements on the battery app, scrolling seems a bit smoother. I wonder if MSFT will allow us further updates now the boot loop problem is solved?

    YES, boot loop problem is solved.
    ALL changes that latest firmware contains are to fix this boot loop bug. You can just look at update files and verify.

    Hello everyone,

    This is my first post in this community, but I have been following it but quite some time.
    I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but hope someone can help me.

    A friend of mine asked me to fix his Ativ S, which is not booting (don't ask me why). The following error message appears on boot:
    boot-error.png

    As hard reset does not seem to fix anything, I decided to follow this guide in order to flash a working rom to the phone. I am on Windows 8.1, and disabled driver signature verification to install samsung drivers, which finished succesfully. Nevertheless, I can't make WP8 SMD binary downloader to detect/recognise the phone.

    To begin with, the correct driver is not automatically selected, so when first plugged the phone in download mode is detected as an unknown device:
    download-mode.png
    2eao50o.png
    Forcing to update the drivers from the folder where the samsung driver is installed does not work (it won't detect a suitable driver). So I manually browsed through the different device categories to select which, I believe, is the correct driver:
    driver.png
    After this, the phone is recognised as follows:
    deviced-installed.png
    But, as I said, it won't be detected by the WP8 SMD binary downloader:
    smd-binary-not-recognised.png
    I tried with 2 different computers running Windows 8.1 and a third one running Windows 7. I already ran out ideas, so I hope someone can help me getting the phone detected properly.

    Thank you in advance! :)

    Wow, that's a bit too much for me, I'm not that deep into software (more in hardware). Since it's my daily driver and I don't want to spend time (again) to restore apps and screens I'll wait for the official PfD updates (and even some time after they are tested).

    Well, I think your best chance is to go to this link:
    Samsung ATIV S I8750 Rom flashing! | Windows Phone 8 Development and Hacking | XDA Forums

    Or if any of this thread users knows something about that kind of thing, can help you, just be patience if anyone of them read your post. I will search around to see a possible solution to this and if i find will let you know.
    Other good chance is this site, but it is on polish:

    See if you can provide us with a screenshots, but considering that you need at least 10 posts to be able to post link here, try using some picture services and upload screenshots there and provide us a link. I am very intrigued to see this.
    Since you can't post links too, try to copy the link without the "https://", that way the forum will see this as a text and will let you post it. :)

    Yes, in Windows 8.1/10 with new downloader (f/w >= 14.9.3) you can simply use Windows Update.

    I tested new SMD Downloader 3.5. It really fast. 100 seconds for fully firmware upload.

    Hello! Not much of an information but I've updated manually last week to 8.10.14219.341 (to get Cortana in French), I'm on 2424.14.9.3 firmware, ATO CSC and now, it seems I don't receive the latest firmware that fixes bootloop. I'm out of the PFD process.
    Edit: Never mind, it seems I've just received it. :D
