[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.

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