I've just realised that my phone does not have the latest Lumia 920 firmware despite downloading Portico a few weeks ago. I thought the Nokia firmware was supposed to download with Portico?
Has anybody ever received a separate update notification for this?
My OS version is: 8.0.10211.204
My Firmware revision number is: 1232.2110.1244.3011
It's an EE 920 btw.

I had bought my Lumia 920 from Phones4U (UK) - SIM free, then found out that it was locked to EE, so unlocked it and I'm on the TescoMobile(O2) contract and as such, the phone still shows EE as provider. But it is under TescoMobile. My OS version is 8.0.9903.10 and Firmware Revision #: 1232.2110.1244.3011
I had only once, had a phone update, but unfortunately, I did not check to see what were the firmware numbers then. However, when I was looking for the Beta version of Nokia "Play To" to download, I found out that the firmware has to be a higher version, i.e. something like 1232.5k... I tried to update mine, but it comes back after checking with "your phone is up to date, checked 2 seconds ago". So I called Phones4U, to see if they know anything about it. The technical help said that they rolled out a new version (which i presume it must have been portico), but they had to roll it back as it has caused signal as well as call cut-offs and freezes. So they are not rolling it out till Nokia releases a fix.
So, according to Phones4U, my phone is up to date! But I am still suffering from heating issues on media playback (super hot!) and also battery life, which lasts about 7-8 hours!
A friend of mine bought his 920 from Vodafone, and his version was 1232.5k.. type, and it worked for good 24 hours on one charge. However, after 4 days he returned it, due to call drop outs and screen freeze on screen pull up on the On-Off screen! So I guess, it is lucky that I'm still on the older firmware! I hope Nokia/MS sort this out quick as the battery is really testing my patience... I am admiring the news of the Galaxy S4 coming out, when I can't do the basic with this one!

"Nothing wrong with the OS or firmware" Really! I advise to followed up the post Portico forum here!
Anyhow, on what basis you argue that it might be corrupted firmware, when it is what the Phone company says is the latest stable version? Also, what firmware have you got and which location please?
However, assuming that there is some issues with the current firmware (i.e. not letting new version to be installed), is there a safe/tested way of DIY, that wouldn't turn this little beauty into a brick?

Anyways, If you are willing to give it a try, find any of them which match your preference language and country. It should work just fine.
However, there is a good possibility you may brick your phone. But you can always force a flash on bricked phones, which I never encounter a phone that cannot be "unbricked".
It is VERY IMPORTANT to have at least 70% battery, a stable USB connection and a stable power source to your pc. Interruption should be avoid at all cost!
For starter this may take you hours to prepare and operate, but this is the beauty of buying a Nokia product.
If you are unfamiliar to tohis kinda of operation, please do cnsider to let the service center to do it for you. Its the most common operation for a technician and they will be doing exactly the same thing as describe in the manual thread.

what is the latest version of the nokia firmware? i have os 8.0.10211.204 which from my understanding is portico. my firmware is 1232.5951.1249.0001 so it isn't the newest because other members are reporting higher numbers. is there a way to physically check for a new firmware and upload it somehow to the phone?

The latest properly offered firmware is 1232.5951.1249.xxxx so your phone is up to date.
From this thread there has been a new firmware on navifirm, but it's not being pushed out yet and you'll have to manually flash it.
A new firmware for lumia 920 in navifirm?
Update on my situation - I contacted Nokia Care on twitter and they could only advise I visit one of their stores to have my phone looked at. I don't have one local to me so I just flashed it instead using the instructions in the sticky.
Losing my save games was a bummer though.

I know this is off topic but this is awesome!!!!! on my lumia 920 i had 5 gb of "other storage" but then i did the "shrink storage" app and at first it only cleared around 20mbs of storage and i was disappointed but today i noticed that the "other" kept shrinking by itself and i just downloaded "asphalt 7" and now i am down to only 2 gbs of "other" its awesome now i have 20gbs in my available storage!
