Default [Q] Nokia Black update would not install on WP8.1 Preview

Hello, I am new here. I need some help with my Lumia 920.

I have installed the 8.1 Preview for Developers, and by that momento Nokia Black update wasnīt available on my contry/operator, so it was installed over the Amber update.

Now, Black update is available for my device, but it wonīt install. My country is Argentina and operator is Movistar.

Is there a way I can install the black update without flashing my device? since I don`t want to reset my phone.

Thank you very much!

Daniel

The quick answer to that is no, unfortunately. You'd have to flash a Black update ROM for your device then reinstall 8.1. Once it is installed, any firmware targeting a previous version will not install over it.
My Apps:
R1ng3d | CloudMuzik V1.5 Now in the MarketPlace for both WP7 and WP8
My Projects and Contributions:
WP8 Registry Tools | Async Wrapper for WP7 Root Tools SDK
My Phones:
Lumia 1520 - (8.1) / Lumia 920 - (8.1) / Focus v1.3 (7.8 via Dynamics ROM)

I think i would skip black update then and go straight to cyan when it is made available.

yes
HTC One V (August 27th 2012 - August 3rd 2013, still own) -> LG Nexus 4 (August 3rd 2013 - January 11th 2014, still own) -> Nokia Lumia 520 (January 11th 2014 - present)

I'm not as active as I used to be. I still show up from time to time.

This is useless for his problem as the hard reset.
