I've also heard that the "Nokia Software updater for retail" (see Google!) is a good tool for managing updates if they aren't coming as you expect.
I also own two Lumia 820 Developer devices (Productcode 059R4L7). One of the features of those devices would be the early availability of firmware updates. But until now no sign of a GDR2 update via OTA. I know I can update the device with the aid of the "Nokia Software Updater for Retail", but that is no real solution as a lot of data is lost than. Here in the Netherlands consumers are already receiving the GDR2 update via OTA updates so I'm wondering why it takes Nokia so long to make this update available via OTA.
As far as I understand no approvement from the telecom companies is neccesary as these device are not branded and generic for Europe.
So come on Nokia, pull some switches to make the GDR2 update available via OTA asap.
thank you guys for the infos. My productcode is 059p710 , I tried also "Nokia Software updater for retail" , but there is still nothing. It is definitely not on the provider, on my Ativ S 8.0.10327.77 is already here.
My 920 (a developer version handed out in Build 2012) hasn't been updated yet either. I am willing to wipe it as I only use it for development, but am not sure the "Nokia Software updater for retail" links on google are safe, since they come from random servers, not Nokia. Who is to say they do not have malware embedded that will trash my PC?
Anybody seen anything about Nokia pushing out an OTA update yet for developer 920s?
This one asserts to be good - I downloaded and installed it yesterday with no additional crapware added to my computer that I can see.
Nokia makes best-effort to update developer devices as early as possible; ideally well before CE releases. Unfortunately our planned early update was held back due to issues shown in testing.
We’re currently testing a new version and this will be released as soon as we’re confident it is ready (probably this coming week).
A heads up to anybody that hasn't noticed. I received GDR2 for my developer 920 on Saturday via OTA in the UK so it should hit the rest of you soon!
P.S. The glance screen is awesome
Still no sign of the GDR2/Amber update for the 820 Developer devices. What is happening? Or will we be surprised by receiving a GDR3 preview version
I've been told that the updates were approved and sent to production. So you "should" now be in the queue. If it doesn't happen soon there may be a device specific issue - in which case you should directly contact whoever supplied you the device (or update using the Nokia Software Updater for Retail)
