    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?

    Not use Windows Insider, period.

    GDR2, which is cool, is only a step to the 10 preview. The way things look now, it's either you get GDR2, then 10, or not.

    So you advice to let the update install and see what it will be?

    Well, it appears its going to happen sooner or later, it appears you can't stay on Update 2.

    Backup your device ... HARD RESET ... then restore from Backup >> it'll be GONE

    Worked for me !

    ... and stay away from Windows Insider, if you haven't worked out the fallback.
