Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 preview due week of August 4

    You're correct. I must have downloaded the app in the free Dev process: Get updates for your Windows Phone, but forgot about and never noticed it in my apps list. I see it may have been a waste of time and effort to upgrade to the official 8.1 release. I should have went through the app for GDR1. Lesson learned!

    Anywho, I now have version 8.10.14147.180 which is GDR1.

    No, you did the right thing updating to the official release of 8.1
    It was also the only way you could get the Cyan Update for the 1520.
    If I had the option I would do the same, reinstall DP and continue getting these great additions direct from MS
    I wish Cyan could be gotten by bypassing Verizon, I would have it already.

    How confusing this can be. There seems to be misinformation everywhere. According to this article, Cyan, when released, will install no matter what OS edition when available. How reliable is this?

    Microsoft Confirms Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview Users Don’t Need to Downgrade to Get Lumia Cyan

    Many users have not upgraded yet to Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 for fear of not being able to install Lumia Cyan when it becomes available for their smartphones.

    The good news is Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore cleared up the situation of these updates and confirmed that regardless of what version of Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview you have installed on your phone, you would still receive the firmware update your handset is eligible for.

    My latest firmware revision number (1028.3562.1407.1001) does not match the one listed here (Latest version: 02061.00074.14273.33019) for the 1520: Availability in North America - Nokia

    Not even close! Is it because I now have the GDR1 upgrade?

    I sympathize with you on Vz. They seem to be lagging.

    The downgrading to WP8 to get Cyan was due to a BitLocker issue on Corporate used devices.
    This only affected a handful of people,, but to play it safe, MS blocked anyone on Dev Preview from getting it
    I think the fix is part of GDR1, not sure though.

    it is confusing.

    Most likely the versions won't match because of GDR1, yes.
