MNBwp_ss_20130404_0009My Nokia Lumia 920 downloaded an update on its own just now and asked if I wanted to install it. This is a UK 920 from Orange (or was, it got swapped with one from Nokia Care).

It was the “NOKIA” update for Windows Phone.

My OS version is 8.0.10211.204.

The firmware version was previously 1232.5951.1249.1018

It’s now: 1232.5957.1308.0020.

Storage check appears at the very bottom of settings. I’ve previously used Shrink Storage to quel the hunger that os ‘other storage’. It manage to climb back up to 9.20 GB today.

Some of you have had this update for a while and some might still be waiting for it. Either way, I’m gonna share my updates with you guys :p.

MNBwp_ss_20130404_0016Storage check didn’t clear all of that (I noticed some others having just a few kb/mb)



You’ll need to swipe to the right and click clear on temporary files.




Cleared. 1.9GB still remains in other.



Actually no, 5.19GB remains in other :/


MNBwp_ss_20130404_0021I wonder what’s eating up that extra ‘Other’ space and how can I clear that further? Better than 9.2GB I guess but still…

Here’s the gallery of the update process, minus the cog thing when the phone restarted as you can’t take screenshots at that time.

Times like these I get jealous of the microSD card slot in the 820/720/620/520.
