Lumia Cyan updates now available for all of India as Lumia 525, 720, 820 and 920 go wide

Over the last few days, Microsoft and its carrier partners have been busy pushing out the Lumia Cyan update for various Lumias. Today, we are updating our lists for the Lumia 525, Lumia 720, Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 as those phones have either completed their Cyan updates or have a few remaining carriers as holdouts.

Perhaps the biggest news is that all of India is now complete for the Lumia Cyan update. From the Lumia 520 all the way up to the Lumia 1520, all eleven of the country variant Lumias are now eligible for the 8.1 and new firmware updates. Considering how big a market India is for Windows Phone, this news demonstrates Microsoft's priorities in delivering updates to its users.

When it comes to the Lumia 720, 820 and 920 series, almost all regions and carrier updates are finished, with just a handful of carriers remaining (Tigo in Latin America seems unusually slow in approving).

Unfortunately for those in the United States, we are still looking at only four devices (out of 17) eligible for Lumia Cyan, all of which are on AT&T. Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, MetroPCS and Cricket are all under testing, although we may see some updates kick off today or later this week.

Lumia Cyan resuming for (some) Preview users

Finally, as we reported last night, Microsoft has resumed the Lumia Cyan updates for the AT&T Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1520, along with the Lumia 920 in Germany. Those phones were previously blocked if on the Preview for Developers update from getting Cyan, but as of yesterday, they can be updated.

Microsoft's Joe Belfiore tweeted today that they thought the BitLocker issue is isolated to a small group of users: "we think the only cases of this, still, are folks who updated via a NON-PUBLIC mechanism that we used for small-group & internal testing." As a result, it appears that Microsoft is becoming more confident that the Cyan update for Preview does not cause any harm, hence the resumption of the updates.

Presumably, Microsoft is testing the waters with the update and the resumption of Cyan for Preview users goes wider in the coming days. For now, users can still use the Nokia software tool to flash manually Cyan to their phones if they wish to wait no longer.

Lumia Cyan updates now available for all of India as Lumia 525, 720, 820 and 920 go wide

This Lumia update is a joke, right? It's been rolling for months and months. And is still going!!! It's total embarrassment.
Glad that there is no more Nokia. They failed to release a SINGLE phone that most of us have been screaming: 5" (ish) screen HD+, 801 processor, SD card support, 20Mg camera with dedicated button, light with zero bezel, metal (ish) case. Is it too difficult?
Two more things:
NO MORE BRICKS!!!
NO MORE CHEAP PLASTIC!!!
Hope that Microsoft Mobile will pick up the pieces and sort Nokia's mess. Surface 3 style phone will get my money. Common MS, do us proud and deliver.

Don't forget iPhone 6 is nearing its launch day. I won't be surprised if they release the actual device worldwide sooner than Microsoft release cyan worldwide.

I think you are kind of mistaken. NOKIA Phones are anything but cheap plastic and they are the most resistant phones i have ever had. Nokia has made Quality Phones for many Years for example The E75 Steel made E7 full aluminum FULL not parts of it. i am still rocking my L 920 after dropping it to the floor many times throwing it in rants and surviving wild nights at the club thanks to that bulkiness and brick body and with a design that make it stand out in the sea of generic android and iphone extra thin rounded devices.

Yeah.,man... My lumia 520 has already completed one and the half year then also people say that the phone is only few months old though I use my phone harshly like throwing it in the bed, playing games all the time....etc.all the hard stuff like that... Lol

You are absolutely right about that... but he is unfortunately right about updates - they seem to be a bit chaotic.

Problem that impacts me and my Lumia 920 - Cyan for NZ Telecom is released, but Cyan for NZ CV isn't even being mentioned on tracker list. I fear that Denim will be out before I receive Cyan. If they ever release it.

Eventually, OK... my phone is 2 years old model. It is not like it will work any worst than it already does, and frankly, it works great as it is. I actually wouldn't mind if they announced that 920 support will end with Black. But to have Cyan released locally for one provider, and not any info for everyone else... I guess that "so close, yet so far" vibe really hurts.

Back in the days, I had iPhone 3Gs and iPhone 4 for a few years. I like my Lumia much more in every possible way, but I must give it to Apple - firmware updates were really bloody fast released for those iPhones.

The same thing happens with android updates. Carriers take forever releasing those as well unless you have an unlocked phone or a nexus device. Only Apple has been able to break free from this carrier bs. However, unlike Iphones, I have yet to see an update for WP slow down a phone to the point that it is unusable. I've seen several iphones that became so slow you couldn't use them anymore. Apple lets everyone update even if the hardware can't handle it because they want the user to buy a new iphone.

In spite of being released here months earlier for testing, ALL OF INDIA has spanked Verizon's lazy, indifferent butt. Way to live up to the,"Fat,Lazy American" stereotype Verizon. Glad to see the pride in your work.

And then there's AT&T although I'm impressed so far of them pushing out faster than expected for the other devices. With the change in management maybe we can see this as the norm across the board.

Prove me wrong. Or have you not owned an Android phone by at&t?

Posted via Windows Phone Central App

We are getting bored with the constant off topic posts. There is already a post on it that people with DP have started getting cyan so just wait patiently and it won't be long

I'm beginning to wonder if AT&T does this purposely to drive more sales and contract renewals. People who bought a new 920 when it launched are up for a renewal.

I'm waiting for the Threshold devices.  I've been using my 920 since launch and people still regularly ask me about my handset.

I've had my 920 since launch.  I opted in for this last developer preview.  It's a VERY nice update.  Still, I don't know if I can't wait for the Threshold devices.  It just seems so far away.

I actually have my whole family on AT&T Next and we all have 920's.  I will not give AT&T any money until the give us another flagship w/ Qi.

Yup. I'm totally sold on Qi wireless charging, and have withheld getting anything new from AT&T until they stop the nonsense and release Nokia phones with Qi still enabled. 

I'm not up for renewal yet and even when I am I plan to keep it a while longer since my data plan will go up by $25 if I renew a contract

The 920 launched on November 11th, 2012 so we still have to wait a few months for our 2-year contracts to expire...Just as well since there is nothing on AT&T worth upgrading to just yet IMO.

They won't update the 920 til there's another available update. It's not the first time they've done that.

I've given up on a 920 update. I'll just wait til December to see what new Window Phone will come out.

I'm not completely understanding this regarding AT&T. Is Cyan for Lumia 920 available for AT&T yet?

" Unfortunately for those in the United States, we are still looking at only four devices (out of 17) eligible for Lumia Cyan, all of which are on AT&T. Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, MetroPCS and Cricket are all under testing, although we may see some updates kick off today or later this week."...

Not yet -- it's under testing, and probably will be for some time. AT&T would rather you upgrade than deliver to this device, it seems.

Problem is I don't want any of the devices that are out currently. So ill hold onto my 920 longer and keep bickering. Because it only makes sense. Lol.

Exactly. Why would I get rid of a 32GB, built in wireless charging durable brick of a phone for an inferior product? Exactly.

What's sad is the newest phones on AT&T are not that attractive. The 1520 is a cool phone, but I don't want a huge phone that doesn't fit into my pocket. The 925 doesn't have the same memory and doesn't have wireless charging without an accessory (which I love about the 920). So yes, I'll stay with my 20 month old phone that still rocks and continue to wait on AT&T to give Cyan the green light... 

My 1520 fits perfectly in my pocket too but I do miss one handed operation. Although the 6" screen is a good read off.

I've looked at the AT&T options as well. The 1520, nice, but too big. I like that it supports a MicroSD and has a 20MP camera, but the 925 has only 16GB of memory with wireless charging as optional. Nah... the 920 with 32GB of memory and it still fits in my pocket -- and the camera still outshines many of the other phones out there.

Maybe the HTC One when it becomes available on AT&T... but my guess is the L920 Cyan update will make it out before that happens.

I feel that the reason why att usually leaves the 920 update for last may be due to the hardware? Idk, it always seems that they always have to do an extensive testing on the phone vs newer phones don't need to go through much testing because of how the OS is accepted on the hardware.

I'm no engineer, so I can't really pin point what the issue is.

According to the availability list, the 920 is among the last to get cyan worldwide, so AT&T is not the only bottleneck. What the issue is, I don't know either. Possibly because of the built-in Qi charging???

We must never give them a thought that it could be Qi charger. I hate pma because it requires additional cases aka money spent to work. But either way it couldn't be Qi as its just hardware attached to battery that sends a current I would assume.

I have been lucky as I get 50% battery left after 14 hours and that's using it to call, check the news and play games... Maybe do a reset? E.g. Hold down the power and the volume down as that always improves the battery for me!

Thank you T-Mobile for creating the runt of the litter who will always bear the brunt of our jokes.

Yeah I liked that colour too. Was a bit gutted when I updated and saw it was gone. Maybe they changed it to be more like cyan. Maybe on the next release we will get a debian red colour or dandelion

You are talking about cobalt, right? Missing that colour. Hate this new purplish blue colour(sometimes cant even tell weather it is blue or purple). Thank God, i thought i am the only one facing this...

I upgraded to cyan. But now the SIM is detected but not the network. It says "No service". I am beating myself for updating. Any one else facing the same issue? Mine is Lumia 920 (India)

I had this in uk. I took out sim, rebooted (lost 10% charge on battery), then put in sim and rebooted and did manually search. Once found did an auto search.

I wish this worked for me. But this is happening with ANY sim i try with. I want to go back to WP 8.0. How can I do that?

Surprised by the cortana working its working great ...thanks Ms...i think they should rollout worldwide cortana....

MS tagline continues to prove "Better late than never".Hope they will roll out Lumia Cyan for all on DP WP8.1 update 1...soon before update 2 ;) i m holding on with DP!

Considering the fact that blackberry already utilizes android to an extent, it is highly doubtful to be game over for windows phone lol

Oh Wow! Didn't know that BB devices utilities android platform for its OS. Thanks Folks! WindowsPhone 9 will rise soon. Hopefully a Respawn in Smartphone industry :)

Does anyone know why AT&T seems to publish these updates only on Thursday? Is this a burden on their network and they want to keep the load/traffic to the end of week/weekend?

All said. My L620 has still not got any updates.. It still says "Your phone is up to date. Last checked 2 seconds ago"
Checked via Nokia Lumia 620 with Nokia Black from Indian region.

Me too :/ Are we, the L928 users, a rare breed? Why is Verizon so slow? If you consider that they still haven't released cyan for Icon, then that means it'll take ages for them to update the 928.

Can anyone tell me WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DP8.1 AND LUMIA CYAN? MY LUMIA920 IS RUNNING ON DP8.1 WITH LIVE FOLDERS OPTION(AVAILABLE IN CYAN). WHATS THE BENEFIT TO SWITCH TO CYAN?

Aw, Daniel. Let's cut Lokesh some slack here. Noobs don't know about the vast WPC wiki. You guys provide the most informative website for all things WP, but not everyone realizes that a simple search - whether in-site or via search engine - will yield answers to every question ever asked since WP time began.

@Lokesh Pande1 -- Your question is one that has been asked often and about which so much has been written. Occasionally, those of us who are here every day get a bit frustrated seeing it again. Moreover, there is never cause to shout here. Unlike many websites, you can be sure that your comments are actually read. I've never seen a more responsive editorial staff or community.

Welcome to the tile side.

Live folders are not available in the cyan update.It should come with update 1 dor windows 8.1.Most of the things are same.Cyan is just a offical update pushed out by nokia unlike preview for developer's.

Man.. I need to reread what Cyan does for my 920. It's been so long since I read about it I forgot. I know it's always camera improvements, but I don't remember what else.

Well at least this hopefully shuts up those people who always bitch that the US gets things first.

Cyan is firmware for Windows Phone 8.1; Live Folders are part of Windows Phone 8.1 Update, which is part of the Preview program.

Those are two different things.

P.S - Live folders are only available on Preview for Developers program i.e Windows Phone 8.1 update 1 and Lumia Cyan only include Windows Phone 8.1 wait for GRD1(update 1) which will roll out in September maybe from Nokia.

Haha, with that pace I would say rather in January 2015, not September 2014. Be more realistic..

Last time I saw numbers it was the US. Do you have any stats to show that there are more WP in use in India than in the US now?

+920 -- absolutely -- AT&T has NO excuse any longer other than making me wonder, is this a ploy just to get me to upgrade and renew my contract?

if that's their "ploy" it's not working. Verizon seems to be the only game in town for cool new Windows Phones like the Icon and HTC One. Starting to shop for a plan on big Red and debating leaving the death star.

Meanwhile, Verizon hasn't sent out Cyan + 8.1, but AT&T has for some phones. Can't win either way I guess.

Yup, that is true. So maybe we should look at T-Mobile? Didn't they just recently state that their phones would get Cyan BY THE END OF THE YEAR? DOH!

I don't think it matters what carrier you switch to. Carriers will never be fast enough for their customers needs/wants/desires.

Part of the problem is the timing of the announcement and the carriers releasing the update(s). That builds the anticipation.

Does this mean we are now saved from all the endless "When is Cyan coming to India" threads in the forums? Please?!

Daniel, do you think they will "re-release" the Cyan update for Preview users if they fix the Bitlocker issue for all phones, for carriers and CVs that have already received it? Or is that not how it works?

I have a 920 in Norway and the update is available, but I haven't got the update yet. The update has been available for a couple of weeks. And they who have Telenor got the update in the first, but I have CV and I haven't got the update. Someone who know what it is???

If you are on DP, you will not get cyan yet. If you're not on DP you should have got cyan by now (according the cyan tracker list.....??)

I'm not on DP, and Nokia Norway just answer me that the update is rolling out gradually to the 920 series. I have contacted some few in Norway and they don't have the update either. It's only the phones who had bought from elkjop (norwegian shop) and CV. I have CV variant and they who have operator (Telenor) got the update. It's like two groups. Sorry for my english

hi, can anyone tell me why I am not able to get Cyan update in India. I was using Preview for Developers and I tried to use Nokia Software Recovery Tool to downgrade the OS, but still it not showing any update. it say your device is up to date and it is just Windows 8.1 Black.

Device: Nokia Lumia 820

 

Thanks

Hi, Daniel,

Can you please help me? why I am not getting Cyan update in India. I Downgrade from Preview for Developers and while using Nokia Software Recovery Tool it shows it will update to 3051.40000.1347.1001

I did Manual update also and there also it shows  3051.40000.1347.1001  and it says your Device is up to Date

Thanks,

Country: India

Why hasn't WP 8.1 bring an update, so that when you pause a video in explorer you can watch it from where you pause it instead of having to starting the entire video over?!?!?

What's going on?.... No cyan update for preview 8.1 dev program in India... What's the final date...??? Anyway u rock Ms...

They spent that much time and hadn't solve it? And stating that its not big issue just limited to little group of users....i don't like this way.

Dear palmujukka, Thanks for your reply, but on Website it is clearly mentioned that Cyan is available for Lumia 820, please find below,
