    Hello all,

    I am from India, My friend have installed win 8.1 DP on his L820 and 2 days back he got an update ( its GDR1, he said that he have live tiles folder feature ), but he didn't got cyan. The current OS version is 8.10.14157.200

    As he is on DP, can he get Cyan update or he should downgrade to 8? how big is cyan update(approx MB)?

    You still cannot update directly from DP to Cyan. You will still need to downgrade. However, some users report that using Nokia Software Recovery Tool now downloads Cyan/WP8.1 instead of Black/WP8.0. It would still reinstall your phone so all personal data are erased, but at least it saves you from having to manually download Cyan after downloading Black.

    So if he is ready to downgrade, just using nokia software recovery tool will download the latest update with cyan? the apps installed on sd cards can be used later after update or they should be downloaded again? What is the approx download size of 8.1 update and cyan?? :)

    Thank You for the help!

    Nokia says it requires 1.3gb free space.

    I connected my phone to my PC and used Nokia Software Recovery Tool. It says I can download 02061.00066.14253.40004, which is Cyan for me, so I can confirm that yes, Cyan is now downloaded instead of Black. Since this will be an OS and firmware reinstall, yes you will have to download apps again. Last time I used NSRT, I downloaded Black which happened to be 1.4gb. I have no idea on exactly how large Cyan is, but it should be close to that.

    For my 820, Cyan should be available for nearly a month now. I'm still stuck on wp 8.1 DP GDR 1 with black. Nokia Recovery tool is no solution yet, since I'll have to spend 2 days for getting all settings back.
    Anyone who can really confirm, Cyan works with developer preview?

    At this time the only way is to use Nokia recovery tool to update Cyan over DP. I did it with my Lumia 820 DP GDR1 and I'm very happy now. The phone runs faster and smoothly.
    After Cyan update is also possible to install DP again. But I'm staying with Cyan :)
