    If anyone visits this thread and has questions about getting official 8.1 with Samsung firmware for the T899M, please see the thread "T899M 8.1 official Samsung firmware update". Several of us have successfully used the flashing instructions posted near the end of the thread with CSC BMC. Page 7 on the website.

    No! Sorry guys! I just discussed about this update on my russian forum and forgot about you.
    Okay, manual is simple, I think.
    All actions I performed under "sterile conditions" (I flashed my phone CMJ1 with ATO CSC and downloaded all latest updates with new firmware).

    If you updated the you phone to 14219 using Windows Insider - it's necessary!
    I recommend you at first do this :
    1. Flash CMJ1 with ATO CSC.
    2. Install all latest updates (14157 with 2424.15.3.2 f/w).

    Now the core:
    1. Get access to edit the registry.
    2. Go to HKLM\SYSTEM\Platform\DeviceTargetingInfo and edit those keys
    "PhoneManufacturer"="HIGHSCREEN"
    "PhoneManufacturerModelName"="WinWin"
    "PhoneMobileOperatorName"="000-88"
    Yes, it not Lumia, it's small OEM from CIS (Russia, Ukraine etc.)
    This is model gets 14226 (sic!) without any PfD or Windows Insider programs. I experimentally found that the update to the 8.1.2 gets only 14226 and 14234!
    3. So, after editing we go to the settings and get 14226.
    4. Install Windows Insider and choose Fast Ring, it's okay if there is no any other rings.
    5. Install 8.1.2!
    6. Now do hard reset to delete Windows Insider.
    7. ???
    8. PROFIT.

    Fantastically smoothy update, that will add stability to you phone and some cool stuff.



    P.S.:
    If you don't know how to:
    1. Flash CMJ1 with ATO CSC.
    or
    1. Get access to edit the registry.
    Use Google. I don't want to google for you and explain to you my clumsy English.

    Windows Insider after activating makes permanent changes to the system. So only hard reset will help you.

    Yeah, it says my device isn't developer unlocked even after hard reset. Looks like Insider program changes that part just like you said. I'll have to reflash my phone back to GDR3 and start over. Wish we had the 8.1 image to flash, this is really long process.

    This is instruction can be applied to almost all devices, including Lumia.

    Most likely it will never happen. Our smartphone is no longer produced. The firmware images are using predominately at factories.

    Thanks Grozaman for instructions, once again. Maybe it needs to be marked in different thread or something like that, to not get lost?

    Just want to report that I successfully updated to 8.1.2 using grozaman's method and will report experience in next days.

    Edit: Added pic.

    Can someone confirm that downloading the .341 update through Windows Insider still works as of today?

    It's currently installed on my phone but Windows Insider doesn't allow me to select fast ring or slow ring anymore. It just mentions that there are no builds available even though I could still select fast ring/slow ring a couple of days ago. So apparently something got changed by MS.

    I want to flash back to GDR2 to get the latest firmware update (I'm still on 13.5.2). However I'm now afraid I might lose the possibility to get the .341 update with European Cortana if I do so.

    Thanks.

    I have no idea of .341, higheest I was offered with v15 FW was .203. Insider got me .219 and with grozaman guide.226

    But, wanted to point out that you don't need to go all the way back to GDR2, use grozaman guide, flash with CMIJ1 (that's GDR3), it'll save you some time.

    Ok, something off topic..., since our beloved ATIV S i8750 is pretty much the same internal hardware as the Galaxy S3, what do you think, is it possible to flash it with a stock or at least stable Android custom ROM and if it's possible, do you think that ATIV S could be named a true successor of the legendary and versatile HTC HD2? (Those who owned HTC HD2, knows what am I talking about)

    Well, according to gsmarena and specifications, S3 have different chipset, Samsungs Exynos with Mali GPU. That is different from our Ativ S, which is ofc Qualcomm.
    I think it isn't possible, at least for now, as bootloader is locked. But who knows.
    Just to add a little to off topic, they just got W10 build 10070 installed on Ativ S. :D

    Samsung sells two revisions. In Russia, for example, with Qualcomm S4 Play (like in ATIV S).

    The main problem - Qualcomm SecureBoot. You can't download firmware image, that didn't signed by Samsung.

    If Ativ S had bigger user base it could have been done much earlier. In the current situation, we don't have enough reverse engineers/crackers to do it. It's definetly possible :D

    SecureBoot tech almost perfect in terms of security.
    So all hacks almost always based on OS bags.

    Totally agree with both :)
    If they can only release the ATIV S2, that would be awesome. I will be like "Please, just take my money, will buy it in a heartbeat" (me and my wishful thinking) LOL

    Interesting. I always thought only GDR2 works to get the latest firmware updates. Thanks.
