AT&T 920 - Still no Cyan, DP disabled off for months. How to update?

I currently have an AT&T 920 and the firmware is still on Lumia Black. I used the Developer Preview to get 8.1 last year, but I disabled DP sometime last summer as I did not want 8.1 Update 1 (GDR1) at the time. My current OS version is 8.10.12397.895. I understand that Cyan has been available for the AT&T 920 for a while now. When I check for updates with DP disabled it always says my phone is up to date, which it's not.

What is the best way to update to the latest updates available? Should I enable DP again and do all the updates that way or do I need to use the Nokia Software Recovery tool to get Cyan and the latest OS version? I'd rather not use the Nokia tool if I don't have to. This phone has never had a full hard reset and has been working fine. I just want to finally catch up on all the latest updates before Denim or the Windows 10 Insider Preview is available.

Thanks!

Turn DP on again and let it get you up to date on the OS. One of the fixes released enabled installing Cyan after it was blocked for DP users some time back.

If that doesn't get you on Cyan, disabling DP and checking again should do it.

Finally got around to enabling DP again last night and catching up with all my updates. Four updates total and 2 hours 20 minutes later I now have Update 1 and Cyan.

OS version:
8.10.14219.341

Firmware version:
3051.50009.1425.2001

No issues so far and battery life is good. Ready for Denim or the Windows 10 Insider Preview! :grin:

Ok, if you now go and turn the Preview off, likely you will find that you have "denim". On the older phones, denim = cyan + newest OS.

I'm pretty sure Denim is not available from my carrier (AT&T) yet. Full Denim anyway. When it's released it will come for the 1520 and 830 on AT&T first. Not sure if it will add anything of value to my 920. But thanks!

What is called Denim for the old phones like the 920, 1020, is just Cyan (which you already have) and a specific release of OS (which if on DP you already have newer). Thus, you and I already have AT&T Denim. Clear as mud, I know.
