    Hello guys.

    I flashed GDR2 on my 620 through NSU after I read some threads regarding flashing.

    Interestingly, I was given an option as to whether I'd like to restore my backup or whether I'd like to start afresh.

    I wanted to hard reset my phone too so I chose the latter. But can anyone confirm if the restore backup option works? Or is it just me who got that option?

    Here's a pic.

    If you have saved a backup earlier, it would definitely prompt if you want to restore it. Its not surprising. You have flashed your phone, if you had updated it the regular way, your data would have been intact, and hence no question of restoration of backup.

    Maybe they've pulled the update from their servers. Many people are facing the same issue.

    Yes, that seems to be the case.

    By the way, can you please post a screenshot of contents (you'll see things like Manufacturer Name, Mobile Operator, Configuration ID, Label ID etc) under 'more info' section of extras+info app after GDR2 update?
