As usual if your phone is running Windows Phone 8.1 Developers Preview, you will have to downgrade to 8.0, also known as the Black firmware, to be able to update to the official Cyan version OTA. You need the latest version of the Nokia Software Recovery Tool to downgrade your phone. The latest version is 1.4.3 which you can download directly from HERE.


The Windows Phone 8.1 CYAN firmware update for the Nokia Lumia 1520 started rolling out today. I just installed it to one of my Lumia 1520’s.

Here’s a trick to download official Nokia firmware without Navifirm+ 🙂

Things you need:

1. Latest version of Nokia Suite version 2013_13_4_4.exe

(UPDATE 15July2013: It appears some of you are having issues downloading the firmware using the Nokia Suite installer directly linked from Nokia’s server. My Guess is that Nokia may have updated the Nokia Suite rendering the ‘fix’ to no longer work. Kindly download the Nokia Suite Installer I’m using. It’s a 3-part installer from the links below).

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

Single File: Mega Link (Recommended)

2. usergroupsconfiguration.cfg file

You can download the ‘usergroupsconfiguration.cfg’ file from HERE

Alternate LINK to both files.


1. First install Nokia Suite. Do not run after the installation is finished.

2. After Nokia Suite installs, copy and replace the usergroupsconfiguration.cfg file to C:\Program Files (x86)\Nokia\Nokia Care Suite\Product Support Tool For Store 5.0 if you’re running a 64-bit version of Windows. Or C:\Program Files\Nokia\Nokia Care Suite\Product Support Tool For Store 5.0 if on 32-bit.

Running Nokia Suite and Downloading the firmware:

1. Open Nokia Suite. And select ‘Product Support Tool For Store 5.0’ (Double Click)

Application Launcher

2. When prompted, select ‘CareSuite External’ then hit ‘Sign-in’ button.

Sign in

3. From the Menu, select Tools, then ‘Firmware Download’

Firmware Download

4. Now enter the product code of your device, hit ‘Check Online’ button, to check the latest firmware version of your product code.

Download Firmware

5. Then ‘tick’ ‘Optional Content Files and ‘Download’ to save your firmware.

6. Wait a few minutes for your files to download 🙂

7. You may now manually flash your Nokia device with the firmware you just downloaded.


– Your firmware should be stored in the C:\ProgramData\Nokia\Packages\Products folder of your hard drive.

– If you need to download a different firmware version for the same product code, I suggest you wait for your first download to finish, save all the downloaded files in a marked folder, then proceed with your next download.

I am currently downloading DFL61_HARMATTAN_30.2012.07-1_PR_LEGACY_001-OEM1-958_ARM.bin for my Nokia N9 via NaviFirm+.  Been waiting for the links to go live for almost 23hrs now… Cleam update time in a few minutes. Can’t wait!


Symbian Belle widgets are live, free-form and resizable, meaning commonly used widgets like clock, e-mail, music player, favorite contacts and the calendar come in several dimensions and have the ability of being resized. Up until Symbian Anna, you are only allowed to have three home screens, Belle raises that number to six.

Existing phones, like the Nokia N8, E7, C7, C6-01, X7, E6 and 500 will receive their Belle update. New Symbian^3 devices coming out of Espoo, will ship with Symbian^3 Belle out of the box.

Good news to Nokia N8 users who have just udgraded their phones to Symbian Anna. A major update for your cameras is now available at the Nokia BETA Labs.

Nokia Conversations just confirmed that a major update for the Nokia N8’s camera is already out.

Here are the major improvements included in the major update:

  • Ability to record video at closer distances
  • Smoother video of moving subjects or when panning
  • Faster access to scene modes, especially close-up mode
  • Exposure control in video
  • Viewfinder grid not effected by scene modes, camera exit/reopening
  • Smoother zoom
  • Settings accessed through one control point
  • Red-eye reduction performance improvements

Nokia Labs however quickly posted that there was in mistake in the configuration in the current package, saying:

Note !

Due to a configuration mistake, the current package is set to record videos at 25 FPS, not at 30 FPS.
We are really sorry about this mistake and are working hard to address it. We  will update the package very soon with the 30fps functionality enabled,
please stay tuned for the update.

This update is currently available for Nokia N8 with Symbian Anna.  You can head on to Nokia BETA Labs and download the update.
