Should you happen to own either a Nokia Lumia 820 or the higher end model of that corresponding smartphone generation, the Nokia Lumia 920, then you might be pleased to hear that the Amber update is out a little bit earlier than expected. Sure, this particular update is not the official one, but for those with the intestinal fortitude to give unofficial ROMs a go, you might want to check out the links provided by WindowsMania.pl.
These unofficial Amber ROMs for the Nokia Lumia 820 and Nokia Lumia 920 will upgrade international versions of the respective Windows Phone 8-powered devices to the Amber release, which is ahead of Microsoft’s own rollout timetable. These two ROMs are said to be relatively easy to install from a PC as long as you use NokiaViews.com’s instructions, although as with any unofficial ROM update, there is a certain element of risk attached to it – it requires you to give your phone a clean slate by wiping away all of its data, with no guarantee of future official upgrades. Would you prefer to play the patience card instead?
