I'm on the dev preview still, because the 521 hasn't gotten the updates yet. What are the version numbers (OS, firmware, etc) for those with Black and what is the application version of extras+info  (under more info at the bottom) for those with "Black"?

 

BTW, I have the folder app running even without Black.

I got prompted for an update last night and just installed GDR3 + Black today. The website hasn't updated yet but it looks like it's available for the 520 already.

Yup, good new for those on At&t. The closer we get to Build in April the more people update to gdr3. Every WP8 user should be on it by build or at the most before April is over.

I updated to GDR3/Black...

Hardly anything changed. GDR2/Amber was 3+ times the update this one was.

 

Most noticeable changes in GDR3/Black are again, photo's are better. Grain is almost gone now. Compared to a year ago, both GDR2 and GDR3 improved that dramatically. Photo quality increased by at least 30% and that only through software updates.

After two failed attempts. It finally updated.

Will go through the new stuff tonight. One thing i do like though is i can now have custom message tones.

Now i can use my old ones from past phones to this.
