    I am not concerned about missing any 4g option at this stage as i am using the phone on my old Orange contract which has no 4g data enabled.

    Thanks in advance
    To answer my own question and maybe help somebody else..........I flashed the unbranded CV UK Rom and the simlock bin file did not affect my unlock at all. I'm now running Portico on my unlocked UK EE Lumina 920 with no problems at all

    The ATT version doesn't have Pentaband radios in it, so this won't work. What I want to know, is if you flash an ATT phone to Rogers, will that change what sim cards you can use? Or is it still locked to ATT?

    Nothing better to do tonight :)
    I have a 920 from P4U using an EE Sim. Downloading the variant you have to see if I can update too. (Also downloading my original just in case)
    Will report back on the other side

    Well done fella !! I've encountered no problems so far, haven't really had chance to try the camera out in good lighting conditions yet, I'll do that tomorrow. Hope all is OK with yours.

    Happy New Year All

    you'll receive all future updates (including software and ota ) specially if you flashed the correct Product Code.

    Ok, thanks! Now I just have to wait for my product code. It looks like the Singapore variants will be a little late to the party.

    Actually, what would happen if I flashed the wrong product code? I don't think there's much difference between my carrier free Singapore version and other carrier free versions. Would something go wrong?

    Well, that's where the line fades to grey. Everyone is pretty sure that the AT&T, Rogers, and the Build Dev phones all are pentaband capable, but AWS band IV is locked out only by software on the AT&T phones. The clue is that they all sport the same FCC ID: PYAA, which would probably have to mean they all have the same radio transmission capabilities.

    So if the hardware is the same (we can only assume), I'm wondering if you flash an AT&T 920 with the Rogers firmware, will it suddenly unlock band IV? And therefore, let us use AT&T phones on T-Mobile, WIND, and Mobilicity?

    That's what I REALLY want to know!!! Anyone brave enough to try for me??

    This was my problem for the longest time. Turns out I installed older version of NCS(Nokia_Care_Suite_5.0_2012.40.5.8). Downloaded and re-installed Nokia_Care_Suite_5.0_2012.45.4.5 version and wala. My Lumia920 was recognized and was able to update CV HK version. Although I also had to put the FW I downloaded from Navifirm manually on C:\Program Files\Nokia\Packages\Products.

    my phone came with a hong kong version so i flashed a random version that i thought was australian but it was german!! but it worked fine, no problems, then i re flashed it to Telstra which is my local network, and it is fine, so in my case there was no issues, but I'm sure its a possibility that something could go wrong.

    If my product code is not on the list, does it mean I have to wait until February '13?

    Well, I certainly hope you're right! I would think someone has tried this by now? I would love to buy the cyan version of the phone on attending and eventually get it for tmobile with 3g bands, but I don't have a lot of faith :(

    You need to update your Nokia Care Suite to the newest version, there is an option to check for update in NCS.

    The link which is provided here downloads an older version of NCS.

    I have been using it for few days - it works well, feels speedy ... I think that there is a lot of bug fixes applied for music players, camera improvements, option to keep wi-fi alive when screen is out, answering by SMS, etc. ... about 4G, I can not comment as I can not see it there (settings - cellular, as the highest connection speed. however, I can see a such 4G option in access point of my operator), but I am NOT on the area now that has a single 4G network as well as I have only 3G contract by my operator ...

    No 4G is fine by me, I'm on Three. Any little annoyance you can mention? Something that doesn't work well or as well? I get reboots but not that many that I'm desperate to update. Still, knowing that it's there, it's hard to resist :)

    None, like I said all works well and it feels speedier now ... they, MS and Nokia, might make some fine tuning before a final update will be released here in Europe, like applied for audio, bluetooth, etc. ... well, Nokia can still improve camera sw and I am pretty sure that it will happen by the next updates ... signals are good and no problems with home's, work's or hotels' wi-fi at all ... I have been surprising how well Nokia maps works during my holiday - GPS is almost always found in few seconds without internet connection and it really follow me in a real time, so I can just look an offline map and walk, knowing all the time where I am and and what way I am going (of course, I downloaded that offline country map by Nokia maps before my holiday) ...

    Hi, It looks like I found the answer to the "no 4G on UK roms" question
    Basically any 820 or 920 handset sold sim free to the UK market is only 3G enabled, any handset sold by EE is 4G enabled for EE!
    When the other operators launch their 4G networks then Nokia and the operators will supply an update to make handsets compatible.

    Guys,

    I have the Singapore Starhub Unlocked Variant (059Q956) which hasn't come up with the Portico update yet. I am in India and was getting a little scared to change things as the product hasn't been launched in India yet. I saw this thread (via the WPCentral article) and noticed that the India Portico update was present (although the phone still isn't launched here!). That was all the push I needed and I rooted the phone to the India variant (059R2B8). Worked like a charm. No issues. Even the Microsoft Backup worked brilliantly.

    Thanks everyone on this thread. Everytime I had a issue, the solution was already posted. Brilliant stuff folks. Kudos to all and specially Nabkawe5 for posting this. There is just one thing I disagree with him on i.e. the need to stick to product code - I know he is just trying to be extra cautious but I don't think it is needed.

    Just noticed the EE UK files are on the system now (not for the black one though) - happened about 5 minutes after I flashed a generic one to my P4U EE 920 !! Currently downloading the files for the white one (mines is black)

    UPDATE: Seems to have gone OK. I'm currently restoring my backup data. Shame you can't recover a homescreen setup
