If you own a Nokia Lumia 820 or Lumia 920 device, you might be pleased to learn that according to a smattering of reports, the Windows Phone GDR2 update for either device has been spotted in Nokia’s servers. What this means is that for those who might be too impatient to wait for their carrier or Nokia to begin rolling out the update to users, you can go ahead and download the updates manually and flash them onto your device yourself.
What this also means is that by flashing the update, you’re effectively wiping your phone and it will be a fresh install, so all the data will be gone and your phone will be as if it just came right out of the box. Of course this isn’t exactly for everyone since we imagine not everyone is tech savvy enough to figure this out on their own, so if you’re unsure about what you’re doing, you might want to hold off on it first. Since the update is already on Nokia’s servers, we can only imagine it won’t be long before it begins making its way to Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 devices.
