@cbae: Whoa! That's some SERIOUS disassembling going on there. But the first step looks straight forward enough and should give me access to clean it. As it so happens I actually have a set of micro torx drivers in my old service-tech tool-kit
@cheong:No, it's never been repaired.
The 920 allows dust to get in via the ear-piece slot, which is what caused the early problems with the proximity switch, that Nokia adjusted out with firmware. However, it now appears that dust that gets in there can also accumulate behind the FF Lens cover, and make it opaque. I've never actually used it, so no big loss, but if for some reason I did actually want to take a selfie... it would just be a polar bear in a snow-storm type of thing.
I tried this type of fix, but it didn't work for me.
Might be regional, but I do have Cortana and my phone is not set to USA.
I don't have Cyan yet (still on Black) despite it now being generally deployed to my Carrier-Phone combo, and I thought that this update enabled the dev preview to install Cyan... not sure what's happening there.
If it's as bad as the reports suggest, it could be interesting.
Flat-ish is ok... Telerik's Sitefinity forums appearance is quite nice.
2. make every color customizable in user profile (nav bar / bg back etc - all fonts - colours = there is no design - it is the USERS design
Actually, you could use a stock forum CMS and have this out of the box.
3. lose the 3d 9 guy (for now) we need flat 9 guy. (for now) use the one i signed away to ms in code for fun - it is metro flat - make it available to overlay as white transparent - or black transparent - that should cover most needs
Yep, flatten him, top to bottom ...with a piano ?
4. layout - fine - keep same
No it's not. It needs work, and it needs to be responsive, to support mobile (first) access.
5. thread views: add them BACK! :P
Again, plenty of stock forum products allow users to organise views, out of the box.
Finally... but why did it take MS so long to provide feedback on this? MS really needs to lift its game in this area.
As far as Cyan is concerned... they are still at the mercy of the carriers to actually release it.
My own carrier (Telstra Aus) is the nation's largest, and yet they apparently only have 4 people working in their "testing" department. Given the work-load they are inevitably under, it's little wonder that WP scores low priority. They have been "testing" it now for over a month, and still haven't scheduled a release date.
MS needs to find a way to cut the carriers out of the loop, and do the certification testing for them, so they only need to rubber-stamp the results, and protect themselves from being held to ransom by these hold-ups in releases.
There were my fave books when I was doing this regularly, but obviously a bit dated now.
