Lumia Denim update not bringing new Firmware??


Lumia Denim firmwareThis was brought to your notice by others too, but none of our device received the update in India yet. Now, a nicely done screenshot comparison of before and after scenario of the Lumia Denim update shows that Lumia 520 receives only the OS update to 8.10.14219.341 and firmware version remains unchanged. The Lumia Cyan name changes to Lumia Denim, though in Extras+info.

We reported a “funny bug” that was already changing firmware name in the “Extra+info” to Lumia Denim, if you disable preview for developers. This doesn’t look like a bug anymore and may be with OS version updating to 8.10.14219.341, firmware name automatically changes to “Lumia Denim”.

Lumia Denim anyways was not supposed to bring anything worthwhile to any other devices than Lumia 830, Lumia 930, Lumia 1520 and Lumia Icon. So, for those on latest version of developers preview, which is 8.10.14219.341, there is hardly anything to look forward if you have any other device than Lumia 830, Lumia 930, Lumia 1520 and Lumia Icon. You mayn’t even get the update, if you are on developer preview and have devices other than Lumia 830, Lumia 930, Lumia 1520 and Lumia Icon.

For those who are on Lumia Cyan, and rocking a Lumia 830, Lumia 930, Lumia 1520 and Lumia Icon, you need to read both Lumia Denim + Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 changes on our dedicated page.  Otherwise if you have Lumia Cyan on any other device, check our dedicated page for only Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 changes.

    please help me

  • But what about camera improvements specifically for other Lumia’s, in general? I’ve seen before and after shots comparing the Cyan and the new Denim and, at least for the 930, the improvements are clear.

      Changes are mostly for Lumia 930, Lumia 1520, Lumia Icon and Lumia 830. Others won’t get imaging improvements, as confirmed officially.

  • Agreed with your analysis, but what about aptx codec support for instance? Let’s take the 1020. Will it get the support because it’s included in latest GDR1, or will we have an updated FW?

    Ok for no *new* features, but at least for the camera, they need to fix a old bug (no geotagging of RAW images). This is at FW level according to Juha Alakarhu. It can’t be in a Cyan family firmware update, I don’t care, but we still need FW updates.

  • Can anyone confirm the 1020 will indeed see a bump (and more importantly: the fix for freezes) in firmware revision when Denim arrives?

    • There is a cyan update being tested in Finland (for a couple of weeks): 3051.50009.1447.0001 We usually have 3051.50009.1424.xxxx so far, so I think it’s the freeze-fixing firmware update. So far, tested on Finnish 1020 and 925

  • The firmware improvements which comes with Denim, as you wrote, are only for 930/Icon/1520 (and some for 830), whereas there are literally zero changes in terms of firmware for other phones, so there is no reason to change the firmware build number.
    Also, such a “pro-Lumia-fanboy” like Nawzil does not understand that it’s called Lumia Denim update, and first of all it brings the Windows Phone 8.1.1 features, which DP users got earlier. But 95% of Lumia users, who didn’t sign up for DP will receive this update as Denim (and some real firmware updates for 930/Icon/1520).

      That’s why we needed to add that last paragraph about who gets what.
