    I heard that some Windows Insider-registered Lumias receive WP8.1 GDR2 before actually receiving W10 TP. Running unfinished OS is not really my cup of cake, so I'll pass installing W10 TP. However, I'm sure that many of us are interested in WP8.1 GDR2 with its security enhancements and Bluetooth keyboard.

    How do you ensure that when you register your Lumia for Windows Insider, you receive WP8.1 GDR2 first? i.e. How do you ensure that you don't install W10 TP directly?

    I use Lumia 625H if it means anything.

    There's an article on www.wmpoweruser.com on how to get WP8.1 update 2 on any phone. You better check it out now because it seems to be a server bug before Microsoft fixes it

    Yet that is exactly what you are setting out to do.

    This is not an OTA, it is prep work to prepare a phone to receive Win 10. No one is meant to do this and stay parked on a "GDR2" which has not been tested for stability and function.

    I managed to do this with my L1520. First I installed wp10tp yesterday, but didn't like it, even couldn't have my contacts restored. So, today I used Lumia Software Recovery, then using windows insider started downloading GDR2 and deleted windows insider from the phone, so now I have only GDR2. My problem is I wanted to do the same with my wife's L822. The update is downloaded and is trying to install WP10 at once, without GDR2. I don't want it. So how can I cancel this update if it's already downloaded but not set up. If I don't cancel it, it will be set up automatically on the 15th of April. Does anybody know what to do?

    Sure... Use one of these tools to revert her How can I recover/reset/restore my phone software? - Microsoft - USA then restore her last backup (you did make a backup before tinkering, yes?) and uninstall Insider if it installs.

    Congrats. Minimal data loss. Provided all your cloud backups are up to date.
