    Are you sure it is Denim? Because 520 get only GDR1 with a wrong title in extras+info. It is actually Cyan. You could tell if you still have Nokia Camera. On Denim it is called Lumia Camera.

    Lumia camera came out a few weeks ago for all (Lumia) devices. When version 5.0 is released, it will only be available on Denim (or something like that.)

    Yes I have Lumia denim. I went onto this site:

    https://forums.windowscentral.com/e?...token=kGMLH1mj

    Found my ccountry which is Ireland, my phone network operator which is Vodafone and the available update. I cross referenced the Firmware version and OS version on the site with the "About" section in settings. For those of you wondering they are: OS 8.10.14219.341 and Firmware version number: 3058.50000.1425.0006

    Now I cant speak for everyone but it worked for me. All my pics and messages are backed up to OneDrive and I use facebook messenger so the need to apply my backup wasn't needed at that point. But yes that's what is needed. You have to downgrade from preview for devs before upgrading to Denim.

    Same features no Cortana as of yet as I'm in Ireland. Camera has greatly improved. Its alot more smoother swiping and scrolling wise. Had problems with the keyboard but since the update autocorrect has been working better and more accurate. Have to say its great all round. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Very easy the Nokia Software updater does all the downgrade work. Then just update to Denim as normal.
    ..Settings
    ..Phone update

    So I plug the phone in and select my region using your link and it will do the rest? I haven't got my laptop at the moment and just getting a mental idea on how to do this :-)
    01-08-2015 07:09 AM

    Plug the phone in via usb
    Use the Nokia software updater
    It automatically detects your phone, carrier and region
    Follow the step by step on the updater

    Should take 15 mins depending on your internet.

    Once completed
    Phone will start to install, chose your language the usual yada yada you go through when installing your phone
    Log into your outlook account you provided on day one of purchase
    When asked choose between apply backup or clean install choose clean install
    Once phone and apps have been installed look for updates and you should be able to find Denim.

    The link provided is only for European countries, Lumia phone model numbers and mobile carriers. It shows what firmware is available.

    Note if your country, Lumia model, mobile operator/carrier shows that Cyan is the only available firmware (as Denim will be on the way shortly) you dont have to downgrade today. Just keep checking back to the link provided and then start the downgrade and upgrade to denim. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    ...or you could just uncheck the Preview for developers opt-in box in the Preview for Developers app, and you have Denim automagically...

    ...or alternatively, after doing all the things listed in the opening post, install the Preview for Developers app after this procedure, check the Preview for Developers opt-in, and, whoopsie, you're back on Cyan!

    What I mean to say is that this is uneccessary, on 520 you have Denim if you are on the latest version of PfD, and this procedure will land you back exactly where you were, minus all your data. If you won't miss your data, then OK, it's a nice way to clean up and freshen up your phone.

    Don't worry about getting Denim. Denim for the Lumia 520 = Cyan firmware + 8.1 Update 1. If you're on preview for developers, your OS version is actually higher than what you'll get on Denim. So relax, just uncheck Preview for Developers and extras+info would show Denim

    I am not on PD anymore. I uninstalled it when 8.1 was officially available. But now I am finding it hard on how to get onto denim with the link that's posted. It just shows me info on what country its available in with all the phone models. I cant see how to get it onto my phone from here

    No the firmware provided in the link is only a guide to find out if denim has been released in your country. You don't use the link to install the web page into your phone. All you need to do is find out if denim is available if it is update your phone by going to
    **within the phone**
    ..Settings
    ...Phone Update
    ...Let it search
    ...Once found it will install as normal

    What is this thread! It adds absolutely no value. It basically says if your device has denim available you can download it from Nokia software update.
