Is there a way to flash Lumia 820 to get the exact firmware that Lumia 1020 have?
What I really want is to have RAW format for pictures on my Lumia 820 and to have 3 columns for live tiles on start screen.

I am just asking if this is possible. I saw that there is a people who are hacking the WP and I was wondering if they have discover that.

What I really most care about is RAW format for pictures. That is all.

1. Is there a way to flash Lumia 820 to get the exact firmware that Lumia 1020 have?
Such as that: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...5#post49359405

2. What I really want is to have RAW format for pictures on my Lumia 820?
Normally, if I'm not mistaken, DNG (RAW) is is compatible with PureView.

3. And to have 3 columns for live tiles on start screen?
Even the Nokia Lumia 1020 does not have the three columns...

2. If I am not mistaking, RAW format is only available for L1020 and L1520. At least WP Central is saying that. So, it must be about firmware. I remember that Nokia Camera was not available for non PureView models like my L820 (until about month ago), and I could get it with correct proxy. I had all the features from that application, but I could only get maximum of ISO800 which is how much ISO my camera can take in the real. There must be some workaround to get RAW format on L820. That feature is not based on specific camera hardware.

3. Isn't? Maybe I am mistaking, but I am quite sure that WP Central have stated that L1020 would get 3 columns for live tiles. In practical, that does not matter to me. What I only care about is to get RAW format when I take pictures.

Never in a month of Sundays will you be able to retrofit RAW image processing.
It's a dual function of the camera sensor & software.
Nokia are not about to shoot themselves in the foot with allowing mix and match camera facilities devaluing their flagship phones.

It begs the question why with an 8MP capture you'd actually want RAW file format ?
My Samsung S2 has an 8MP capture. RAW would be rubbish.

Save your money - go out and buy a Sony DSC RX1.
