    Guys, please help me.
    I'm going round in circles looking for a simple set of instructions (with links to the required tools and firmware) to flash my AtivS i8750 to the latest available 8.1 (or whatever the latest is we can get).
    I'm fully au fait with flashing Android so I'm not a novice but haven't ever done a WP phone at all.
    Thanks for any help or assistance :) x

    No need to flash it if it still works, loading and activating the Preview for Developers app will make your Ativ update to the latest 8.1.1 automatically. The proces can be found on the forum. Take care, it can make your camera buggy. And be sure you have the 8.0 GDR3 firmware (at least 2424.13.10.1). But all other advantages (live folders etc.) make it worth the effort!

    I have firmware version 2424.13.5.1 and developer preview and there are problems with camera (flash isn't working properly most of the time, sometimes the camera stops working and a reboot is required), everything else works nicely.

    Why the crap didn't I receive the 2424.13.10.1 firmware update? My CSC is ATO.

    I'm on ATO too.... but still camera problems with flash after photo and black screen after using video camera. Perhaps ATO doesn't update firmware when you are on PfD?

    Hello,

    I've updated today and I can confirm that the latest version does fix the camera issue in ativ s. Here's a screenshot with the version I have.

    Nope, the camera issue is still there with the latest update, unfortunately.

    No one knows when and if it actually comes... There was some information about a mid september to mid october update but nothing confirmed. It could be that Samsung will release the 8.1 update with both GDR1 and GDR2 updates packed in, that would be the only logical explanation why are they taking so much time to release the new update, the other one would be that the update will simply not be released, but that's probably not the case as there are some apps like Ativ Camera and Ativ Clock that were recently posted to the Samsung Windows phone store and they only work with 8.1 update! But then again maybe the update is only coming to the more recently released ATIV SE...

    I know that I keep saying this but I think the reason the update hasn't been pushed out yet is due to the BitLocker issue which has now been resolved. Microsoft probably told Samsung to put a hold on rolling it out until it was fixed.

    Samsung Ativ S has some problems with WP 8.1.. we cant do anything with it unless Samsung releases new firmware.

    Hmm.. revert back to WP 8 (again) install developer preview and search for new updates. First 2 updates are WP8.1 only.. you can try to install only this two but it wont fix your camera problem.

    My camera Works good but I have problems with Flash and sometimes the camera freezes... and the ringtone resets back to factory setup

    Just curious I notice Teodor Florin has a firmware rev no. 2424.13.5.1 whereas the firmware rev. no for Geo L is 2434.13.10.1 Is this the reason for one saying No camera problems compared to other having camera problems????

    Also notice bootloader version are different first one is 13.04.19.21 compared to 13.08.14.16

    i think Samsung (or carrier) released a new FW for some regions but this update has nothing to do with WP 8.1

    My firmware is 0424.13.10.1 (is everyone is doing typo mistake of 2 instead of 0?) If its '2', then I didnt received any other updates of firmware after I had purchased. But 8.1 working like a charm apart from camera flash issue. As per the ringtone, it was still my custom mp3 ringtone and it didnt got reset to standard ringtone (using 8.1 from one week). Am enjoying 8.1 (through dev prev). My OS version: 8.10.12382.878

    Phone update showing new updates to be downloaded and installed. Is it safe to go ahead with the new update or it will impact the existing one?

    Can you see the update number and if it is an OS update or a firmware?
    The best way to see what kind of update it is would be to download it but not install it.

    Well, I believe there's a firmware update as 2424.15.3.2 somewhere last summer I think and this one seems fixed the camera issue in WP8.1 GDR3. Maybe you'll need to change your CSC code to receive the new firmware.
