    Used the Software Recovery tool to update my 822 to Denim this afternoon - a huge 4+ GB affair.

    Disabled the DP beforehand, but not sure that makes a difference using the SRT.

    Got a new DP update after re-enabling it after Denim installed.

    Still not getting denim on my 928. Shutoff PFD. May just use the Nokia SRT to flash the firmware.

    Yeah pfd latest is the same as denim just saying too
    That is simply not true. The preview for developers is not firmware nor does it touch the firmware. It is a preview version of the 8.1 OS only. This has been addressed too many times to count. In this case, it also takes about 15 seconds to demonstrate that the firmware ID is different after installing Denim. It was 3051.4000.XXXX prior to Denim and 3051.50009.1446.0000 after. This is not subject to debate - it is about as black and white factual as things ever get. If people cannot grasp this they probably should not be installing the developer's preview anyway.

    Woo! I'm on the developer preview and the download just started now. I didn't have to roll back to 8 or do a reset.

    Downloading 4.39 gigs of Denim with SRT. Ran the backup in my phone first so I should just be able to restore from that. 1hr to go. #TiredOfWaitingOnVerizon

    It is actually painless - just takes awhile if you have a slow connection. Run the backup in the developer's preview and after Denim (and the official version of 8.1) install have it restore that backup. I would have rather not had to take the extra time but at least I know the install of both is clean without concern for any upgrade corruption. I have had that sort of thing happen before which is quite frustrating.

    Just downloaded an update. Phone is running the gears right now, will see if Denim is there after this.

    Just as a note, I tried unchecking and checking the Preview for Developers program a few times to see if that did anything, with no luck. Currently it's check-marked (on) and I guess the update just became available.

    EDIT: Confirmed, it was the Denim update. Total download and installation from DP only took about 20 minutes for me. Would advise others not to jump the gun and go the software recovery tool route, lots more time and work in that.

    It shows RAM on black too. Did you get an update on your phone and have to restart at least once? If not then you don't have it.
    Yes, it rebooted. After unlocking my phone I saw a toast notification showing Denim installed. This, however, was not the case with my wife's phone.

    My wife has a Lumia 928 and I could not update her phone (also has PfD). I had to use Lumia Software Recovery Tool on her phone. Luckily, her settings and preferences were synced in the cloud, so restoring her phone took less than an hour.

    The only reason I can think of is I did a hard reset on my phone about two weeks ago. Perhaps something with the install was different. So, it updated for me somehow, but not for her phone.

    I know exactly how this is going to work. I've been checking all day. I'll go to bed and at 3AM when it is scheduled it will download it and install it for me without any effort. I need to step away from the phone.

    Edit: Five minutes later is started downloading. I am most happy about this for my wife, not me. Her phone has been a little buggy on PfD and I'm hoping the firmware can shore up some of that so I don't have to hear the complaints anymore.

    I disabled my PfD for a couple hours hoping for an update but no go. Then I decided to enable it again and go to settings to check for updates. Poof, I'm downloading the update!!

    After toggling the DP button on and off a couple of times, the download started. Im installing Denim I think right now. Well, Verizon still sucks but at least they went straight to denim on this update making us the first to get it (vs. AT&T phones). The download started with the DP toggle on on my 928

    Ooooh, new verizon splash screen

    Yeah.i noticed the new splash screen first too. Overall my 928 seems a little peppier. Lumia camera, however, not so much. Still seems laggy.

    yea finally updated, the only improvement I see is the stupid orange Verizon boot screen, I wish I could remove every damn instance of code with the word "Verizon" from my phone seriously, other than that... there are little arrows on top of cellular and wifi signals, nothing else

    Yeah my 928 seems a little more responsive. Disappointed that Lumia Camera doesn't see anything different. But don't forget that you can use Softcard now.

    The little arrows above the wifi and cell signal icons are annoying. I wish that whole tray of icons could be hidden. Didn't they auto-hide on WP7? Now that we have action center, it's just a simple pull down to see all of those if needed, but I don't like them being there all of the time and now they're flashing little arrows from time to time.

    Also, I agree with the others that mentioned Lumia Camera seems to be a disappointment. Boot time doesn't seem much faster, but time between pictures does seem improved, but not enough to make such a big deal out of it.

    Yes they did, and the other thing I noticed is the space between that tray/bar and the first tile. It's enlarged now almost 2x. Minor -but stupid- thing
