    I will definitely get free early updates.

    I also just recently got the no sound headphone jack problem. Seems to be common enough. The fix it is a hard reset, but maybe this update will fix it without me having to back up the stuff I have.

    I have a question. What about phone language with Preview for Developers?
    I have set my national language (Polish) and I'm thinking about update availability - only English or worldwide?

    Anyone else having issues with multiple entried of music in your library? Read it has been a problem for over a year with no fix. I have seen up to about 5-6 entries for same song, no reason why.

    Download SysApp Pusher and check for updates for Nokia apps, there was an update for Audio I think (can't quite remember) that fixed that issue http://www.windowsphone.com/en-ca/store/app/sysapp-pusher/19d44d9e-f18e-4df1-9bce-36335242ed2e

    From what I've read whenever an update has been pushed out using the developer preview, a warning appears if the currently set language is not supported in the update.

    I've never had it but I've seen many people on other forums with that issue and the duplicate photos issue. Supposedly this is getting fixed in 8.1, but for some people fixing it is as simple as turning off Xbox Music Cloud Collection (Music + Videos, Settings, set Xbox Music Cloud Collection to Off).

    I disabled all of that still persistent, however I do not have the duplicate photo issue. I also read the issue was supposed to have been fixed in a previous update, time will tell with 8.1

    Ya it's a pretty handy app to make sure all your OEM apps are up to date. Hmmm are you able to get the phone exchanged?

    I have read all I need to do is a hard reset. That is go into settings and reset to factory settings. I just need to not be lazy and back up my stuff.

    Absolutely, welcome! I've added you to the Members list in the original post.

    I guess I'm picky, if there's an issue with my phone I'm going to exchange it till it works, unless Nokia itself addresses it as an issue they're working on. Some sites do recommend to just get it exchanged, as obviously it should be working perfectly http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/nokia-lumia-928-problems/#!DntEH

    Absolutely, welcome to the club! I have a 520 as my backup phone, so it was nice to see Windows Phone 8.1 running so smoothly on it at BUILD last week.

    The Windows Phone 8.1 dev preview is out today! Downloaded it and have it mostly set up, all I can say is WOW! Here's a "review" of the dev preview http://www.wpcentral.com/windows-phone-81-review and a comparison of Cortana vs Siri vs Google Now http://www.wpcentral.com/cortana-versus-siri-versus-google-now

    If you're outside the US (like me) and want to enable Cortana, here's how you do it http://www.wpcentral.com/want-cortana-outside-us-heres-how

    It also looks like Data Sense is include with the update regardless of carrier, which is good news for most people! http://www.neowin.net/news/data-sense-included-in-windows-phone-81-preview-regardless-of-carrier

    It's gonna take me a while to play with this update, there's just so much there!

    Did it fix your duplicate photo issue?

    I'll have to install it on my 520 at some point, glad to hear it runs good though (not that I had any doubts). The update just screams on my 1520.

    Done, and welcome!

    I never had the duplicate photo problem, however I dont have multiple entries of music now, although some seem to be missing, I will do some testing tonight when I get home from work.

    Welcome to the club! Added you to the Members list in the OP.

    Woops, typed photos but was thinking music. Anyways that's good. I have the same issue with certain songs/albums missing. It's related to the "new" music app (which is just Xbox Music). I also have lots of albums with improper album art because Xbox Music is keeps grabbing the wrong art. I'll have to fix them with MPAtool http://www.windowsphone.com/en-ca/store/app/mpatool/a6056e5e-34bd-4098-9cd8-4ed5df611d97

    It really bugs me, for my use the Xbox Music app is a step in the wrong direction compared to the built in music app for WP8.

    Looks like a few developers have already updated their apps to support transparent tiles:

    wp_ss_20140422_0002.jpg

    For those apps that don't support it yet (if the app uses your accent colour, it will be transparent) there is an app called Transparency Tiles that supports some popular apps. It basically allows you to pin a transparent tile for that app. http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/transparency-tiles/f4125e62-a88b-4f7d-b8f6-3cd60069f105

    The same developer also released another app called Start Perfect, that is MUCH more powerful and has a ton of customization options (costs $0.99, well worth it IMHO) http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/start-perfect/6c24032a-c61f-4edc-bf0f-dd9c2dfdd836
