Hi,

In the attachment you'll find the links to Windows Phone 8 update packages. So far, I haven't done much research on it. I haven't looked into possibilities to flash these packages to Windows Phone 8 devices. For now, the download-links for these packages are only meant for research-purposes.

The GDR2 update for the NOKIA Lumia 920 consists of a total of 498 cab-files. These files are OS update-packages and driver packages from NOKIA and QUALCOMM. There are a lot more cab-files than in the Windows Phone 7 updates and the files are much smaller. The update is probably split up into many small packages for better performance of OTA updates.

Edit:
Added GDR1 updates (captured by AlvinPhilemon)
Added GDR3 updated

Ciao,
Heathcliff74

I'm going to flash back to the 5951 update, run fiddler on the phone and see if I can spoof the windows updates into applying to my 920 (if that will be possible)

Question, does anyone happen to have the Carrier codes for the carrier in Sweden, Spain, and Australia? Example ATT-US for AT&T and ROG-CA for Rogers. I need the equivalent of those for this fun little test.

Btw, it looks like MS hasn't implemented traditional over-usb method to install cabs. During R&D I believe they apply them directly to file system.

It sure would be nice if they had a cab installer program like they did with WP7.

Well, it's not just file-copy. Provisioning-files and registry-files need to be applied. Also, the filenames of the binaries in the package are not the same as the target-filenames. It could be that a reboot triggers further installation. For example, there is PhoneProvisioning.exe...

well, yeah, but it is still less "canonical" process if we compare it with CE

Alright, I trust that you and HeathCliff have this under control? . I really need to learn ARM/x86 Assembly and get back into C++. I feel useless sometimes :P.
