    Hey guys,
    I got my 830 for Christmas but unfortunately I'm from Germany and it's cv it, so now my question is: can I change the country variant via something like Nokia care suite to Germany? And if so, how?

    Thank you very much :)

    Yes it can (if you know what you are doing) but why you want to do it?
    Try to bing or google how to do it.

    A IT will work in

    I think he said "it" which I'm guessing is Italian!

    Yep, Italian, sorry

    And I'd like to change it because it seems more logical to have it as German than not

    Maybe it sound more logical. The flashing from ROM is possible but it may also go wrong so I would not recommend it only to make it more logical.

    Alright I'll think about it :D
    But the CV doesn't affect the device right? It was set to Italian by default but apart from that?

    No it does not. Maybe only the FM-radio so check this app if it works. And firmware updates are released by country so you may get it earlier or later depending your CV. For example the DEMIN firmware on the 1520 is already released in Finland so some people who could not wait flashed there phone with the CV of Finland to get the udate earlier.
    But your 830 already has Demin.

    Okay I know it has denim but it's still going to get an update with the battery tile etc right?

    And about changing the CV, I see you need to download firmware via navifirm+ and then flash it in Nokia care suite?

    With DEMIN you already have the latest OS which should includes the battery tile. You still may get a firmware update for your Camera so you can use Lumia Demin Camera.

    Yes you need the navi and Nokia care suite.

    Pretty sure the os on the factory-830 is slightly outdated, but not a biggie

    Good, I'll read up on it a little and then decide if I want to do it

    Bye the way you could also call Santa Claus because he obvious made a mistake. Now there is in Italy someone wondering why he got a German CV. ;-)

    Haha, don't worry, it was a website which sold EU lumia 830s, so I guess quite a few Germans didn't get a German one :D

    I changed my Hong Kong CV 1020 to GB CV 1020 by flashing today. Was pretty straight forward and easy.

    Will changing it void the warranty?

    Yes, but mine had no warranty as the Nokia one ran out and it wasn't from EE so I wasn't fussed. :)

    I just followed things slowly and planned an hour beforehand.

    Hey!
    I have a German 1020, and want to change the CV to the GB version. Do you have instructions and or a link as to how to do it?

    Thanks!

    I used [Tutorial] Unbrand (flash) Nokia Windows Pho… | Windows Phone 8 Development and Hacking | XDA Forums to do it.
