ahmedjan87 says:

I live in jordan and I updated my phone from a long time.

take your phone to the nearest nokia care centre to get amber installed on your phone ;)

ahmedjan87 says:

But that's the problem it'll be hard reset and I have a lot of apps and my internet isn't good to redownload everything

you have to compromise lol

S Vaibhav says:

When it rains, it pours :)

edjr07 says:

Live tiles Definitely more live.

gchandrujs says:

Ya. i got this noon (IST) for my 920. I'm from India...

NorwayCowboy says:

Why not bumps our telephones with some black update?

AndrewL920 says:

The bug is that it shows wring number version.

JW888 says:

received this morning

AuraTigital says:

Nokia Camera received an update too.

It's for Lumia Black.

akks says:

Now its faster.. Woo...

Yes and phone feels lighter too.

rahul.sharma says:

Yeah and now it just disappeared

LSDigital says:

What's that "Glance PinBoards App Agent"?

I assume its the notifications like on the lockscreen, but with Glance.

LSDigital says:

Maybe not for Glance Beta, but for Black... because I think that is a Black feature.

ripthuggery says:

Anybody get skips when recording video on 1520

Jf.Vigor says:

Yeah are you recording to SD card? You have to get a class 10 to avoid the skips

edjr07 says:

I have a class 10 and still get skips

aitt says:

Get an extreme sdxc

Whats the "Glance pinboard",? Cab anyone explain it?

Wonder if this fixes the random charging notification on a wireless charging plate. Happens all the time on our 920s. Can't charge wirelessly at night anymore.

I randomly receive charging notifications on wired charger after it reaches 100% and I touch the device. If I don't move it, it's okay.

Lumia 820.

LSDigital says:

I thought it was my cheap charger :p 

Yes it's a little bit annoying...

tyaan says:

Good to hear, I thought it was just my battery starting to die after one year of extended wireless charging.

Bug/issue not fixed. Maybe Black will fix it.

Edwardlb20 says:

Nokia Share has also been updated from to

My Lumia 520 also got glance pinboards app agent....means are there any possibility that glance will be available for 520???

Plystre says:

Woho! I got lumia black also! 1020 with developer gdr3 on Telenor in Norway.

AndyCalling says:

I find it quite odd that this, the most simple and minor of Nokia's apps, is receiving such regular bug fixes. I mean, it just shows the version numbers of components, right? How badly was it coded if all these bugs keep coming up? Nokia are so good with the rest of their coding, this app is really incongruous. Was it written by the work experience guy or something?

This app is really the backend of most of the Nokia apps. I only know this by trying to decompilng it (along with several other Nokia apps) and reading though it to find out how we're going to get an interop-unlock. FOR ALL LUMIAS.

Hopefully it can be unlocked soon aka jailbroken

Well, its odd really, cause I can read the code and understand what's going on. If you frequent xda-developers enough, one could get that thals1992 is my username everywhere. The only thing is that I still would need someone else to create an app to have an on device tutorial. And possibly the app to do the unlocking for that matter too.

rath79 says:

This app is kind of like nokias back door to the OS remember with previous updates to this app it enabled call and sms blocker and other features.

Hirosh Mk says:

Waiting for Lumia black update for my L920 in India.......

lubbalots says:

Whatever bug they fixed sure didn't fix the 1520's touch sensitivity issue.

Roach26 says:

After updating the app my 920 got real hot without using. Had to turn it off for it to cool down... Luckily I have my 520 to use while other phone is off.

05Paris says:

My 1520 is no longer 6"

vishhh says:

Does anyone experiencing heating problems for 1520 after update. ?

jlynnm350z says:

My phone cuts the grass and takes out the garbage now. Hopefully next update it will feed the dog.

drozdpatrick says:

Where's our Cortara update? Huh?

Hirosh Mk says:

Cortana is coming for wp 8.1 update...not for Lumia black update

drozdpatrick says:

Nice update, wish it were three tier and pinnable.

viteco24 says:

Dayum my 520 is fast it also got the glance pin agent do you think that it will be getting glance?

I read the reviews that some were complaining that the call & SMS blocker app was disabled after the update. Can anyone confirm this? This is an important feature for me as I get random phone calls from telemarketers. If this feature has been removed, then I'll pass on this update.

erichon99 says:

Yes my update caused an issue with the call SMS blocker. Restarted phone, same problem persists.

ricsip says:

How do you block random telemarketers? Do they call you from the same phone number? In the telemarketing business, they call you 95% of the time from hidden numbers, so in this case all you can do is to block unknown numbers. Which results blocking all unknown callers and any callers who dont send calling number, but text-only caller line identification strings without numbers, for example the mobile operators.

luke_grech1 says:

After updating 'extras+info' and the 'call and sms blocker' apps, all of my apps are not opening! Then I read the info part of the 'extras+info' update which said that: 

Update your phone before installing extras+info by going to your App list > Settings > Phone

But since that I usually press 'update all' in the store, I didnt get to read this! :( When I updated these, my phone was still with the Amber update. Now when I go to the 'phone update' in settings, it would just say that my phone is up to date. How can I get my apps running again? I am so frustrated about this. Anyone had the same problem? (Lumia 720)
