    This has to be the quote of the day on WPcentral. You just put words in my mouth that I have been looking for, for sometime now. :)

    I have a HTC 8X with Dev Preview. I will install Update 1 (or GDR1), but my question is if i have 8.1 update 1 installed will I still be able to install the official 8.1 update with firmware from HTC when they release it?

    Plus for HTC there is no rollback to 8.0 right?

    How do you do that, and does it cost money? Being a student, I'm kind of averse to spending money on something I can't drink...
    I've got a 930, which obviously came with 8.1 and Cyan, but I'd like UK Cortana being English. Can't be dealing with this Fahrenheit nonsense!
    Ask Cortana to show the temperature in Celsius/Kelvin. She'll convert it for you :-)

    yup, it's REALLY convenient asking that EVERY TIME.

    It'll take 3 seconds at max to command her ("convert it to Celsius / How about in Celsius"). That's not at all inconvenient, IMO. If you want her to show it up in Celsius/Kelvin, wait till its get upgraded/updated for your location. Cortana gets periodic updates though :-)

    Well I wasn't entirely serious, if you couldn't tell.

    Point is: having a setting "Regional format" (Date/Time, Currency, etc.) and yet having Cortana not respect it is a major oversight.

    If I switch back over to developer preview from my 8.1 cyan, what features would I lose?

    None. You have 8.1 and Cyan installed. All DP will do is give you a sneak peak of GDR1 update which is an add on to what you already have.

    Get your device enrolled in developer preview program and your device will get the update next week regardless of cyan firmware update :). In other words anyone who is running windows phone 8.1OS update can get GDR1 update via developer preview.
    Nah, they're "starting" to roll it out next week.
    Take a look at other recent app/OS/firmware roll shambles to see what that means.
    The chances of seeing it next week are slim.
    And as with previous messes, they'll not commit to any date.

    Um those are completely different things. The 8.1 and cyan official roll out is dependent on carrier release and subject to carrier and region roll out.

    Developer preview is not this at all. GDR1 will be released next week because it is a push out directly from Microsoft to the developer community. You cannot compare the two as they are not the same thing at all. There has been no delay in DP releases so far.

    Well not every device is carrier dependent.
    And there's not been any "delay" in DP releases because there's been no schedule. You can't miss a date you don't set. Hence the thread, MS say they have an update but won't give a date for shipping it but people insist on asking when it will ship.

    That's why I said region specific too. If a developer update is available as announced on wpcentral then checking in Ota update will show as an update for a particular device that day

    i'm still confused about this update.
    i'm using a Nokia Lumia 1020, running a Lumia Black and recently updated my OS to WP 8.1 Update 1 Dev Preview. the Lumia Cyan still not available here in Indonesia. my question is, do I need to downgrade to the original Lumia Black firmware using recovery tool when the Lumia Cyan released, or I can simply disable the "Preview for Developers" app and then update Over-The-Air via phone updates? i personally think I need to downgrade, since the Update 1 have the newer OS build than Lumia Cyan, but i'm still unsure. anyone can answer my confusion? I'll really appreciate your answers. thank you. :)

    If it's urgent for you, you need to downgrade to Windows Phone 8.0 GRD3 (Firmware doesn't matter, you also can't change that).

    If it's not urgent, JUST WAIT, you will eventually get it with no needs of downgrading. YOU WILL GET IT! Just with time.
