Update on Mobile Windows Phone from the 8 8.1

Hey friends, in today's tutorial we will see how we can update to Windows Phone smartphones 8.1 that came preinstalled with Windows Phone 8. You can update to Windows Phone 8.1 if you own an HTC or HTC 8X 8XT or a Nokia Lumia 520. Basically if your smartphone came preinstalled with Windows Phone 8 then you can update to Windows Phone 8.1
Gotta know that once made the update to Windows Phone 8.1 you can not go back to the previous version but you still get updates for Windows Phone versions to come. However Nokia Lumia models there is a tool that can help us return to Windows Phone 8 if we are not satisfied with the update.
To install Windows Phone 8.1 we need an App Studio account that we will make accessing http://appstudio.windows.com.
Account we will do our logging in the aforementioned page with Microsoft account that we have on Windows Phone smartphone, whether phone use a Hotmail, Live Mail or Outlook
Next you need to access the Store on your smartphone you plan to make updates to Windows Phone 8.1 Preview and download application for Developers. Walk through the steps required by the application, check the Enable Preview for Developers. Access then Settings section on your smartphone and tap phone update and then tap check for updates.
The most important improvements in Windows Phone 8.1 are notifications or notifications drawer. As with Android or iOS will have a notification area icons 4 expandable and we can enable / disable fast wireless network, bluetooth, airplane mode or lock the screen orientation. Two other major improvements are Cortana personal assistant, similar to Siri and Google Now or Flow Keyboard allows us to write very quickly by simply passing your finger over the letters that form words. Unfortunately Cortana and Flow Keyboard works only for English, shame!
Although I installed this update for almost two weeks, I've had no problems. Applications we used to do the update and now I work after I update to Windows Phone 8.1, as can be said about the applications you have installed after update. My phone Nokia Lumia 520 moves slightly faster with the new update and luckily I have not noticed a decrease in battery life

  9. Cresala is not the final version 8.1 but it is a Preview for Developers. then "Flow Keyboard only works for English, great pity!" not true ! when the official version 8.1 for Romania will be published, it will work, currently 8.1 is published only in China and on new phones eg: Limia 630, 930 etc.
    then NaviFirmPlus and Nokia Care Suit and Nokia Software Updater, Nokia software recovery tool. You can install and previous versions ex 8.0
    You must be owner of the world to know, not just read on here and there.

      I clearly said repeatedly that tutorial is about Windows Phone Developer Preview 8.1.
      As Flow Keyboard remain skeptical and see if the final version will be supported and Romanian. The Android keyboard has basic support swipe and unfortunately still no support for Romanian. What makes you think that Microsoft will add support for Romanian language Flow keyboard 8.1 the final version of Windows Phone?
      Even holding a Nokia Lumia 520, I said it and only tutorial not currently hold a DSLR with which you can shoot smartphone. I have a camera but I am not satisfied that the quality of films.

      • Adrian Gudus said

        As an addition: Google introduced gesture keyboard since the version of Android Jelly Bean 4.2 and even today, after so long, have not added support for Romanian language.
        Not that I would like Microsoft to add support for Romanian language in flow keyboard in Windows Phone 8.1 (final version) but I'm afraid that you expect (like us all) more and better happen this!

        • Since the keyboard is in Romanian and is recognition of words that change the fact their is swipe? I mean, you should not take finger on the keyboard means? that you recognize with the dictionary already implemented certain words, if not all.

        • As add, not March interest Romanian, I am in Italian, just to correct you post.

      • When one reads the title you understand? Must specify the phones Windows Phone Update Preview for Developers from the 8 8.1.
