    If I remember correctly, when the bitlocker issue first occurred, they suspended the preview for developers program until a fix was found. Now that they have released update 1 for developers, yet I still hear that it (being bitlocker) hasn't been resolved yet. So I believe like most users, we would like some further clarification.

    I'm beginning to think that they aren't actively working on a fix and instead are hoping that everyone on DP will eventually relent and roll back before updating.
    I also find it unbelievable that the issue with Bitlocker wasn't picked up before they started rolling out Cyan.
    Bitlocker is a Microsoft product fgs and DP8.1 has been in testing for months and I've no doubt Cyan has too. Pity someone at MS didn't think to test all three together.

    The fix will be a while yet. It's a complicated problem.

    The downgrade option has been advised by MS. If you choose to ignore this advice then you will unfortunately have to wait.... It could be a long one!!!!

    That's fine w with me. I like bypassing T-Mobile and updating my phones with the latest software available. I have no problem using "beta" software.

    Means neither... what it actually means is GDR will receive *future* firmware updates - Cyan is current.

    Microsoft Confirms Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview Users Don’t Need to Downgrade to Get Lumia Cyan

    Although there's no mention of bitlocker and someone actually asks Joe if he's confirming the bitlocker issue is resolved and it doesn't look like he replied. I hope he meant phones with BitLocker included because there's no getting around bitlocker for me (unless I log into the server and disable it, and get fired).

    Ok..I see one way out of this, we all spam him (Joe) with the same question.
    Eventually, he'll answer, that's how things happen.

    I'm going to tweet it now, you do it also, please.

    Ask something like "Are you gonna fix the bitlocker issue soon?" or "When is DP getting Cyan?".

    If you read it very carefully, the tweet refers to future firmware updates, not current (which Cyan is).

    I wasn't saying we all send him multiple messages.
    Everyone sends one, which isn't considered spam, so he wouldn't block anyone.
    It just indicates intereset, because there are people out here who are waiting for that fix!

    Actually no, multiple messages received from different sources on the same subject in a short space of time is enough to trigger various spam filters.

    Personally I think that anyone who needs to do that (or even suggest it) should grow up, get a life and act a bit more maturely on the matter. Sure it's annoying as hell but I (and am sure many other people) are getting sick and tired of people constantly whinging and moaning because they can't have their own way and want things when it suits them. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that the mindset of a child? I couldn't care less when Cyan is released, or the bitlocker issue hasn't been resolved yet - it doesn't affect my life in any way whatsoever, and if it does affect some people's daily routine then they have serious issues.

    The fact you commited to running preview software on a primary device removes all entitlement you have to moan complain about any issues that affect you, you made the conscious decision to do so, so you have to deal with the consequences.

    Just flash the phone with Nokia Software Recovery Tool having your phone first backed up. It takes about 30 minutes to flash directly to commercial 8.1 (new) plus Cyan. I did it today and afterwards restored my DP account. Everything worked perfect for me...

    If people want to tweet at Joe they have every right to do so, just as Joe has every right to not respond if he doesn't want to. Belfiore doesn't need Chief of Internet Police David P2 to protect him, I'm quite sure he knows how to deal with being a public figure.

    PS - Not caring about a widespread issue because "it doesn't affect your life in any way whatsoever" is probably the most childish and self-centered thing posted in this thread, so whining about other people acting like children is quite hypocritical, to say the least.

    So... you think harassing somebody until they do something is actually going to work because a handful of individuals demand to have their own way? Yea, no the world doesn't work like that unfortunately. You could do that until Hell freezes over, but it won't make a slightest bit of difference to the speed in which the issues are resolved.

    If you bothered to read my post correctly, you'd notice I never said that they couldn't... I said it was a stupid and childish thing to do, and it was only referring to these issues specifically. While I'm at it... isn't demanding you're own way for something exponentially more self-centered than not giving a hoot?

    Has anyone here ever actually had the Bitlocker issue ?? has anyone ever spoken with an affected bitlocker user ?? and why would a company phone using Bitlocker be able to install DP ?? are company pnones not locked down so this cant happen

    To me Bitlocker issues are smoke and mirrors, there is no Bitlocker issue, better publicly to say that than our update is messed up due to all the lay offs Ms have recently been through but dont worry we are trying to sort the issue

    Just a thought is all

    I've seen a screenshot of the BitLocker issue. But not seen it myself. But then again, I've not met anyone with a Windows Phone yet.
    There's good reason for corporate policies to allow the install of apps yet insist the storage is encrypted. Many companies tread that line of "you can hook up your phone to receive company email if you want, but we're gonna encrypt it and have remote wipe ability". Others, of course, go for a much more locked down approach (particularly if equipment is company-issued).
    No one really knows what's going on inside MS with all of the recent issues. And the total absence of communication from them confirms that either no one inside MS really knows what's going on inside MS, or (and perhaps more likely) they don't really care enough to get organised and communicate/fix things.

    But see this doesn't help 810 owners who aren't getting commercial 8.1 OR Cyan.

    Unfortunately, you are right! To options left: if there are product codes for 810 for which the update is available you may try to rebrand your phone ( for sure more complicated procedure but still possible). If not, you have to wait...By the way you may tweet Nokia Care (not Microsoft) about the update options/timetable for your model.

    Rebrand to whom? The 810 was a T-Mobile exclusive, nobody else offered it and there isn't even a Country Variant due to this. In other words, those owners are royally screwed. They didn't get Black, nevermind getting Cyan.
