Nokia CYAN Update and the release of Windows Phone 8.1

[sc:mobile-category ]As I’ve mentioned before, I installed the developers preview for Windows Phone 8.1 as soon as it came out.  However that didn’t include Nokia’s CYAN firmware update.

Fortunately CYAN is now available and I’ve installed it.  Well I say fortunately, but what I really mean is unfortunately…

I installed it right away and it turns out that there are some problems going from the developers preview to the full release, Microsoft is actually recommending to uninstall the developers preview before installing CYAN.

The major issue seems to be if your phone has encryption enabled it will become unbootable.

I didn’t have that issue, but I have had a few small glitches.  Music and sounds stopped working until I did a reboot of the phone.  Also mail was flaky for a while, crashing several times.

Things seem to be stable at the moment, but I’ll have to keep an eye one it.
