Lumia 920 users are set for some good news heading directly from Nokia's corridors.
Per reports, either Nokia or Microsoft has acknowledged the fact there is indeed a problem with the "other" files staying back in a handset, and the company has now released an official firmware to get rid of the problem.
Users have been frustrated for quite some time now owing to how little they have control over how their phones deal with this temporary storage with it increasing and decreasing without the user's contact.
However, while a change was actually expected to arrive sometime soon down the line, as promised, it has now been sent out in the form of a firmware for the Lumia 920 including the option for users to both manually and automatically clear out these temporary (temp) "other" files.
The report that Microsoft was actually working on a number of fixes toward the Nokia Lumia was earlier revealed alongside the fact that the company was also including the fix to the temp file issue to it.
Alongside, it was also stated, per Pocketnow, that there would be "forthcoming changes to the People Hub, which should be offering integration with Skype. Considering Microsoft owns Skype, it's almost surprising how it's seemed like an afterthought with all things Windows Phone, but perhaps that's finally going to change."
As far as the new firmware is concerned, the firmware 1232.5957.1308.1004 can be loaded via the Nokia Care Suite and will not only allow users to manually clean out temporarily files, but will also do it automatically at timed intervals.
"Granted, while that doesn't give you full, transparent reign over "other" files, being able to wipe them easily at least restores control over just how much storage space remains on your Windows Phone handset," the new report states.
"For the moment, it isn't clear if this is a Nokia-specific fix, and if Microsoft might have its own way of delivering a similar solution to other Windows Phone users, but it's clearly present on 920 firmware 1232.5957.1308.1004, now available through the Nokia Care Suite."
While it is still not clear if the firmware has been pushed out by Nokia or Microsoft, the firmware's colorful graphic suggests that it may actually be Nokia's work.
