    How to install Windows Phone 8 GDR 3 Update

    Windows Phone 8 GDR Update 3 has been announced for all Windows Phone 8 devices. If you had not got the update then I can give you few simple steps for updating your device manually. A OTA update has been delivered on various devices. Try to check that first and f you are not getting then you can follow my tips. This new update brings lots of new and it is free. The update will also enhance the phone performance. There are three ways to run the update. The first one is through developer-unlocked. But that is a paid service. You have to pay $19 to get that and the second one is to register your phone on Windows Phone Store. It will also require the same fee mentioned above.

    But there is one more option that is quiet easy and will be less costly. Here you have to register yourself on Windows Phone App Studio. And then you can go ahead with the update. The third one is simple so we will go ahead with that procedure. App studio is for making apps for windows phone. But you can also use it for getting Windows Phone 8 GDR Update 3.


    1. Backup your phone data first before moving ahead.
    2. Charge your mobile phone also. It is essential that your must have enough battery to complete the process.
    3. There are few things you have to know about the update. This is a update not any driver or firmware update. The download is only provided from Microsoft site. There are chances that you might have received that update already.
    4. You must have build 8.0.10322.71 or above to run this update.
    5. Once this update is applied you cannot remove it or restore your phone to old state.
    6. There are chances that you may lose your phone warranty also. Because this is a prerelease update.

    Installation Process:

    • The first step here is to create a app in Windows Phone App Studio. So that you can register your device there. You just have to go in appstudio.windowsphone.com/ and signup your account. You can use your live id for that. You will get a Microsoft certificate that will be downloaded on your phone. Just create a testing app. Later on you can go with functions and other stuff. Create the app by following the screen instructions.

    • You will get a QR code at the end when the app is generated. You can also download that directly. You have to add the app so that the certificate is installed in your device.

    • After that you will get a update notification.

    • Now install Preview for Developers app. You can download that from App Store.

    • Now you can install the update. You just have to go in the Phone update section which in settings and install the Windows Phone 8 GDR Update 3. That's it.
