Be careful, there’s a hitch with this build, and you don’t want to get caught out. There’s a bug that allows non-supported smartphones to be able to select and download the newest build. According to Gabriel Aul, do not install the build unless your phone is on the list of supported devices. Your phone will not work and you will need to reflash your device. If you’re not quite sure, the majority of supported devices are of course Lumia.
Insiders updating from Build 10512 will need to update their devices twice. You will see Build 10514 and Build 10536.1000. Run these updates. After these updates are installed, you’ll receive another update which will be Build 10536.1004. This process will take a bit more time than usual but this update has all the important fixes for Build 10536 so you will want to make sure you take BOTH updates. If you don’t have a problem going back to Windows Phone 8.1, you can update directly to this build (10536.1004)
It’s a huge long update process, it’s taken upwards of 90 minutes on one of my phones at the moment, doing an in place update following the process above. The update is a lot quicker if you roll back to Windows Phone 8.1 and go directly to 10536. Most people by now would probably prefer a clean install anyway. What’s fixed?
- Insider Hub is now included again!
- Mobile hotspot functionality has been fixed.
- Voice input has been updated to add support for Japanese and English (India) speech recognition.
- Single hop updates are again available from Windows Phone 8.1 to Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview for all devices.
- Two-factor authentication is fixed when setting up a device for both text and phone authentication.
- Start screen will successfully load instead of failing with “Loading …” displayed in a loop until device was rebooted. (We are still tracking down an issue were it may show “Loading …” for a few seconds.)
- Quite Hours\Do Not Disturb has been fixed.
- Delay in showing date and time on Lock screen has been improved.
- Pinch and zoom in Maps now works as expected.
- After rebooting your phone, you won’t see notifications, such as new messages, until you unlock your phone. After that, you should see notifications for new messages just fine.
- “zStorage” appears in the Settings app under System and clicking on it causes the Settings app to crash.
- Camera upload to OneDrive may not be enabled based on prior settings. To fix this, make sure you are running the latest version of OneDrive by opening the top left navigation bar, then settings on the right to verify that camera upload is turned on and you have the latest app (version 17.2).
- Insiders will not be able to move from Slow to Fast rings temporarily; we are working on a fix but in the interim to move a device from Slow to Fast you will need to use the Windows Phone Recovery Tool to first start on Windows Phone 8.1 and opt directly into the Fast ring.
- Additional languages for speech and keyboards won’t be available until tomorrow (9/15) and will error if you try to download. If you already have languages for speech and keyboards downloaded to your phone prior to upgrading, they will remain and available to use.
Photos app has been reworked a bit in this build, and the One Handed Mode has been added for devices with smaller screens.
