    I'll deal with it. I saw the new win10 build Chinese video leak and in it he's using an 830 with Lumia camera. Does this mean we're getting the update soon?

    They will skip denim and go directly to update 2.
    Several states require kill switch function starting July, so they have to get it ready by then.

    Can't believe it's June 2015 and still no 830 Denim update from AT&T.

    I have a summer vacation coming up over July 4th and my AT&T contract is over end of June, so if I don't have Denim in time for this vacation I will probably sell my 830 unlocked for whatever I can get for it and go back to using my 920. Maybe start looking into a different carrier for off contract service. It's too bad because up until now I've been satisfied with AT&T service.

    I bought it a couple weeks ago. For the most part I'm happy with it. The camera is really bad for a Lumia device. I had a 1020 with Lumia camera and it was amazing and I expected something fairly similar. Especially for shots where my son is jumping around and moving all over the place.

    but I bought it for $270 on eBay. The model number was listed as a 985 and he said in the description that it was still under Microsoft warranty. So ill be contacting him.
    You should definitely file a case, the RM-985 is the unlocked version that received Denim last month

    Pretty sure I saw a press release from Beelzebub saying it'd be a cold day round his way before it came to ATT.

    I thought Windows was better than this? Better than Android and iPhone with updates. Wtf.

    I'm not sure it's MS holding us up now, since the unlocked variants all have Denim. I think it's AT&T.

    pankaj - thanks for the guide. I thought in your other test thread, you said this didn't work for the 830?

    The other thread was to install the unbranded Denim firmware on to the AT&T 830, that didn't work. This guide will only get you the OS update

    Got it, sorry. Maybe I'll try it on a spare one that I have to see if it's worth doing on the daily. Factory reset on the daily is a major pain in the rear, so it has to be worth the trouble.

    Thanks for posting. It should help some folks who don't want to wait out ATT.

    Just remember, guys... This is an OS advance, not Firmware. You don't get access to Lumia Camera 5. That was what the (failed) debrand and OTA download variant updates experiment would have solved...

    I think I will test Insider to see if I can get just Update 2 w/o going to 10 on my spare.

    You actually don't need to hard reset. As long as you are reverting back to the original registry entries after the update you should be fine. Also Insider won't get you Update 2 unless you're on the Denim firmware.

    If you don't get Update 2, you'll be prompted to update relentlessly to Win 10. Just an FYI. Until you either install the update or wipe the phone if you DO get Update 2, don't allow it to check for updates after it's installed. I'd disable any auto update and uninstall Windows Insider before you actually install Update 2.

    I'm not normally one to complain about such things, but this really is pretty stupid.

    After watching the build 10134 video, I may just go straight to that when it's released, if it is as stable as it's said to be in that video.

    I do not believe this will give you the firmware to run Lumia Camera 5. Maybe the new camera app comes close to that but it won't be able to access the capable hardware on the L830. I am still with you though in terms of installing W10 and ignore the FU'ed ATT crap.

    I'll have to look into that - I'm sure there's info on that on this site someplace.

    We know from the last W10 preview that it does not give us Lumia Camera 5.

    Ok here's hoping our 830 is next. The 635 is getting the update from ATT. Yesterday it was the HTC. We're next right? Right? Riggghhhhttttt?

    It should be soon. Also note the holdout Telus 830 in Canada also got Full Denim shortly after the NAM unlocked RM-985.

    I may take the cheaters route.

    I just bought a 985 with a smashed screen. If the update doesn't get here prior to that phone arriving, I may switch boards, and use the 985 board in the ATT body.
