    Hello,i am newby here.I just checked updates and my phone couldn't find 8.1 update for my 8s.Is it possible,that this update is only available as Developer Preview?
    Still nothing official from HTC. The update is only available to those who are enrolled in the preview program. You can do that also, it's free :)

    There are no risks at all. It's simple just like the official updates but just pushed by MS. Your phone might be a bit laggy but overall it'll be still usable. No problem for a casual use, social networks, messaging, calls. Even gaming is quite good.

    Here's how:

    I am helpless and would be glad, if anybody could help:

    I am on version 8.10.12400.899 and I am told, there is an update. But the update would need 690,90 MB of free memory. But on the phone storage there are only 307,39 MB of free memory, and only about 360 MB are used by Apps, Emails etc.; the rest is used by system. So even if I delete everything I can delete, I can't get enough free memory - so why and how have you been able, to install any update further than 8.10.12400?

    Remove email accounts, downloaded files, downloaded maps. Remove temporary files. If still not enough, reset the phone and update.
