    Well, Datasense is something ATT will never give you, so there's that.
    You let the Amber update now instead of months later, with God knows what things ripped out.
    You get a phone without ATT trash apps installed.
    No ATT branding.

    In all, I'd say it's a cleaner and probably better experience.

    Edit: For me it's a no-brainer, ATT replaced my 920 this week so there's nothing on it anyway.
    So when we ATT users get GDR2 eventually, we wont get data sense? Thats bs. What the hell is their reasoning?

    might be tied to Verizon exclusivity, might be tied to data-compressing features in it that need carrier back-end support, might be lazyness on At&t's part, might be coming down the line on an update. If you don't wanna wait, just flash.

    It is no good for AT&T business , they don't want you to know how much data you use and how to control it. T mobile's 925 comes with it. AT&T is very greedy.

    Im probably going to tomorrow. Id still like to know more about ATT and data sense. There's no reasonable explanation they could give to rationalize keeping it off our devices.

    If that's true then this will be my last ATT device. I am going to let them have it on their forums and twitter.

    the same thing when you buy a phone from them and you want to unlock it but they won't. They don't unlock it cause they know the moment they do it , they loose you as a customer cause you are going running and change to Tmobile service which is cheaper

    Flashing now.

    Quick correction: You'll need to rename the "rm 820 rogers" folder in the zip file to "rm-820" to get the nokia app to "see it" as an available rom to flash.

    Also, on Step 4: "When it tells you to retry b/c of lost connection, Turn off your phone, Plug it in, and hold down volume down key. Press retry."

    It's easier this way:

    Step 4: "Unplug the phone and select "Start". The recovery screen will pop up with instructions on how to soft-reset your phone. Plug the phone back in, hold the volume-down (Decrease volume button) and power key down simultaneously. When the screen goes dark and phone vibrates, then select the "Retry" button on the recovery screen. The phone will begin the flash process.

    Rogers flash and updated completed. It took for freaking ever. I'm flashing the Amber update now. So far, so good. I'll update when it's completes.

    Success. Flashed to the final ubranded EU version. Just selected "English United States" as my language and that was it. One thing you should remember to do however:

    Settings>Access Points.

    Select AT&T LTE 1 or AT&T LTE 2. Otherwise it appears to default to 3g.

    The new color profiles and Glance modes are activated at Settings>Display&Touch

    The AT&T splash screen is gone.

    The AT&T junk apps are gone, but, there are 2-3 new junk apps installed now. Easy to remove, they are 20 Minutes, Some french app and a Daily Motion App.

    Data sense is indeed very cool. It's easy to see why the ****-heels at AT&T won't allow it, they'll lose money from people managing their data usage with it.

    Sadly, tethering still does check with AT&T to see if your purchased it. Apparently all ROMS support this but AT&T is the only one cheap enough to gouge their customers by turning on this functionality when the OS detects a AT&T sim card.

    The Amber update lets your block calls and text messages as well. Nice.

    I have a question, my L920 is RM-820, but with product code 059S0R6... can I install any RM-820 rom? my country is Mexico.

    I'm not sure. I know when I did this entire process it did say "The update is for a different product code,bla bla. Do you want to continue?" I said yes, obviously. I'm pretty sure it works on any Lumia 920.

    I'm stuck at Step 5. When I hit Update list, nothing happens? Where do I select rogers ROM?

    I extracted the two ROMs and now have these folders in Products:
    C:\ProgramData\Nokia\Packages\Products\rm 820
    C:\ProgramData\Nokia\Packages\Products\rm 821

    What I am missing?

    Both folders should be named exactly like this:

    "rm-820"
    "rm-821"

    Then the list will populate.

    Just getting ready to go through with all of this.. Couple questions that I'm still unsure of. So you guys are confirming that LTE speeds are where they should be? Will this kill the ability to OTA update down the road? And are there any differences between at&t's firmware and the eu dev one other than maybe keyboard settings and time zones?

    I could successfully flash and update Rogers ROM, but now when I try to start flashing Euro Dev ROM I get an error message:
    "C:\ProgramData\Nokia\Packages\Products\RM-821\B1E09708_RM821_059S6R5_3047.0000.1326.2002_068.vpl has invalid signature."

    Should I download the archive again?

    Edit: Found the solution here:

    Not sure if I'm just crazy after staying up so late doing this.. But I'm on Amber. :) And here is the funny thing.. My LTE speeds went from 30down/8up to now 52down/16up in Amber. I am content.

    Hey All - I have an unlocked ATT 920 - has been working fine on the Telus network. Have the access point app that gave me the correct settings for internet sharing and tethering has been working like a charm. Will I still be able to do that with the unbranded ROM? Will this remove me from ATT OTA updates? From my reading of the forums they seem to be quite slow in pushing changes. I was actually wondering before about somehow sticking the Rogers ROM on the 920? This may be a better solution.

    I have unlocked At&t Nokia Lumia 920. I am just curious to know, after following this process, my mobile will be still unlocked? I am using lycamobile sim in USA on my unlocked AT&T Lumia 920, will I be able to continue to use Lycamobile sim?

    Please suggest.

    Are old SMS messages still synced to your phone after doing this with an ATT phone? What about future OTAs?
