    That is strange.. Usually if u tick the okay thing at the bottom of the dev preview u can download all updates, cuz either way that's how windows phone works. It builds upon previous software updates. So it'll install then first.

    Tell us ur version?? Go to about phone settings tell us what software version (I.e. 8.0.blah) :)

    I think I finally understand ur concern. Ur telling me u need gdr 3 to download preview for developers? I doubt it cuz the app is so simple it's just a login... U literally open it and log in, u can't find it in the store or something? If so try changing regions maybe to US? I believe I had the app since gdr2, when they first released it. Sooo, I think itd work with gdr1 too, that's my guess. It's just a very simple app after all. It lets u bypass the carriers and download gdr2, 3 AND wp8.1 :)

    I wish it was like that but it tells me to update my phone and only option is given is done which exists the app. If you go to the app store and in the description of the preview for developers app it tell you that ur OS has to be higher than 8.0.10.322.71 which mine is not and my phone says there are no updates
