    To start with, please remove the picture with your phone's IMEI.


    Its a manufacturer from Russia named HighScreen. BTW if you read carefully, I'm not the one who came up with this idea, I just put up the refined guide. Please thank @grozaman in the thread linked in the description.

    I know he came up with the idea but it was geared more towards Samsung users, the steps aren't the same for us Lumia people. You really helped alot of us.

    Followed the guide to the letter, but after making the registry changes i got stuck with 'Checking for updates' for a very long time.
    I'm doing this on my Lumia 822 and thought this wouldn't work, until i got a notification saying an update was pending.
    If that goes well, i'll post back with screenshots.

    Success installing update 2

    Would updating the SDK fix the problem. If it hardware related I'll see as I had to reset my computers bios. Got to wait for the cmos battery run out of power first and then plug in the computer or go off on a timer. Idk how long it will take.

    Shortcut...remove the battery and unplug from power (off course) then press the power button for 30 seconds, it resets depletes the stray charge quickly.

    Thanks but I just took everything off the motherboard and reset CMOS. I took off the heat sink so I had to put some more paste on it. The myth about toothpaste not working well is not true. I cleaned the dust,put some toothpaste on the CPU and took off some expansion port covers for more airflow and it feels like an air condition on my feet. This is a desktop btw. Now all I need is some more Ram and a gpu and this thing will run better then my duo laptop. I really hope this works soon because I am really thinking about putting Linux on the old machine. Will wine work? Nevermind I just remembered in have a spare drive so I'll try again a put windows on their.

    Had some time this weekend to give this another try. Started from a fresh phone recovery image by first flashing with the latest rom using the WP Recovery Tool. Then ensure the micro SDCard is freshly formatted for the phone. Actually took a new card just for that.
    I get all the way to downloading the update and preparing to install to 13% and then I get the dreaded error message that it can't open the downloaded update.

    Since I am always getting to the same exact point in the process I am now wondering if there is something wrong with the flash memory on the phone itself since I see that other ATT users with L830 were successful (or are those users with an RM-985?).

    I give up. Waiting for a usable W10 preview....

    I have an 830. RM-983.

    It worked for me. Though the first time I tried it, it did not work... (I had Pasquiindustry's/Djamol's SD card hack implemented before I even saw this tutorial). But I was on the stock OS version that ATT had for the phone.

    What was happening....it kept downloading and installing the same OS update...lol (and it wasn't Update 2)

    Since the RM-983 comes with a lower OS version (8.10.14176.xxx) you have to update it to the latest OS version on PfD first....to 14219.xxx.

    After updating to 14219. Hard reset. Then do the SD card hack, then change device ID's ...soft reset. And check for updates. You should get the update. Make sure you do a hard reset after so that your phone's device ID changes back to the 830.

    If there was something wrong with your NAND on your phone, I doubt you would've been able to flash via the Toolkit

    Extras + info says RM-983_1001 - ATT-US

    It does I have a Nokia Lumia 520 and the thing is like a rocket. Super responsive and the keyboard is brilliant! I don't know why they don't make it available for all phones in glad for Grozaman and Pankaj for their instructions and helping us get it.

    Sorry, I forgot to look for your first post.

    This is interesting.... I'm now inclined to flash back to stock with the Nokia Care Suite and re-do this to see if I can get the update again...I am not sure exactly why this wouldn't work? I don't think it would be firmware dependent because I have the same firmware as you. (....14404.07019)?

    Not that this matters, but I did notice on Navifirm+ that the Lumia 830 (RM-983) had new firmware available early last week, but when I went to go compare it to what I had already on the stock ATT image, I noticed it was exactly the same as what I had?

    Maybe, they did something to the stock Denim firmware?

    Anyway, I'm gonna flash back to stock via the NCS and see if I can get update 2 again....lol -If I can't, oh well...I have my 635/1520 for update 2.

    I'll report back on the status as soon as I can.

    One suggestion you should use the Windows recovery tool instead of the Nokia care suite. The windows tool is far better and its updated all the time. Nokia care suite is being fazed out as Nokia no longer owns their mobile division therefore will stop supporting Lumia windows phones. Windows recovery tool here:

    can't expect you to read all the posts. just linked so you can see I did some work and it wasn't my first try.

    But why would you go through the pain of doing it again? I see you got your Update 2. Why bother to find out for somebody else you don't even know?

    I am currently trying this on my wife's L830, also ATT. She is pretty upset that I am resetting her phone, but I promised her it will all be back the way it was and better ;)

    later
    ​cheers

    edit1: I am past 34% on my wife's L830. I think this is it....Installing update now.
    edit 2: update done, migrating data, WP 8.10.14226.359 is installed...Update 2 installed on ATT Lumia 830 RM-983
    dang, just not on my own phone....

    this will haunt me. I will try this again

    Are you sure it's faster? What about switching several apps back and forth? I only know GDR2 brings new settings app and MKV support.

    It honestly is alot better. Seriously its like I have a new phone and I've had my L520 for it be a little over two years now. Its so much better. I haven't had a single crash yet (you know the dreaded "resuming" screen) no its an all round improvement.

    @djeire84 _ I interchange between flashing tools. I like using the NCS because I can switch over to test mode to check hardware faults if needed. -Or recalibrate something if needed. But IMO, both work still for the current version for all my phones (and allow me to still download firmware from the servers).

    @derausgewanderte _ Actually to be honest my 830 is not my primary phone. So flashing back and forth is something I don't mind. I guess what I am more interested in is why you guys (including RumoredNow) cannot update to Update 2.

    In addition, IMO I find this process is not at all hard/difficult. It's a bit time consuming, but I have the time atm. Believe me, when you cook ROMs for a hobby (back in the WM6/WP7 days), it's something that you just get used too (seeing what works and what doesn't). Plus I've been doing the SD card hack for months now...I used to do the SD card hack manually until Djamol updated his automated method app, so with the automated app...it takes way less time.

    I suppose if your happy with your flashing methods why change them. Its just a suggestion based on my own usage of NCT the Windows phone flashing tool is another great flasher too, that's what I used for applying my custom ROM.
