    will you please provide me if you have one?

    and now that I have upgraded to win10...will the ota version which blu is gonna provide will be different or will it be the same??
    if its gonna be different then do we need to rollback to 8.1 again? or if its not different then will the current win10 version which we are using will be supported further?

    So my story from Blu 150e and Windows 10 Mobile.
    I have already done 3x hard reset and each time went away some bugs.
    But then new bugs have been added. Currently there is stable with minor errors.
    1. Outlook can not be put into the background.
    2. Duration of the battery is minimal bad.
    3. Egde takes longer to display websites

    I think Blu needs to improve driver and then hopefully we get a good firmware.

    Here is the link:https://mega.nz/#F!a19GyaqD!mkrtLwwH6bSkOPF7OZ8u5Q for the older recovery image. But I think it will be a complete waste of time if you flash this image(15009). I tried it waited for nearly 3 hrs but there was no new firmware ota update. But again I was terribly bored of win 8.1 and couldn't resist myself, so I once again upgraded to win 10 again. So what it means if you want to get update of windows 10 for this device then flashing the new recovery image and the firmware through the wdrt is the only way. Even if you have issues with win 10 and want to downgrade then use only current wdrt recovery image.

    thanks for the link brother

    I wanted to ask yo this... how did you figure out abou the upgrade...I remember you were the one to break the news here about the upgrade process...did you contact blu and they told you about the process?? or did you figured out on you own?

    also I wanted to know...if at all I downgrade to old image of 8.1 and then when I get the firmware ota...will it be 15013 which we flashed using wdrtor some other number??
    also if we stay on win10 since we have upgraded nw..will we continue receiving future upgates from ms or we are doomed with .218 and we wont get any updates and upgrades unless we go back to factory version of 8.1 and get firmware ota frm there and then upgrade to win10?

    please answer them..i am abt curious...since you broke the news of upgrade to win10 since then we all are happly using the new os...although its buggy...but it will get better with future cumulative updates I hope so

    @pj1011:Before I clear your doubts I would like to share some points of the GORGEOUS relationship Between Blu and Microsoft and how they screwed their customers.

    1) Last year Blu launched Blu win hd lte(x150q firmware no.15008) pre-installed win 8.1 update 1(later it was updated to GDR2 via OTA) in US back in April 2015. Then same model with identical hardware was launched globally (In India it was in September x150e firmware no.15009).

    2)This year when microsoft started to roll out win 10 tech. preview builds (10586 production builds) to win 8.1 devices through windows insider among all the OEM's such as samsung (Ative SE) LG(lancet) Htc(M8 for windows) provided necessary recovery images and firmware and drivers to microsoft.But Blu's recovery image and firmware was not available for internal build testing. In 1st week of march MS released .122 build at that time WDRT was updated and for the first time we have seen Blu was added to the manufacturer' list and the recovery image was available for the US model. Even many users were not able to get techincal previews . Finallly on March 17 when MS officially rolled out Win 10 mobile the upgrade was available for only US model and fate of E was still unclear. The questions and concerns for E version were raised seriously from around the world. Both Blu and MS were blaming each other for the Win10 upgrade fiasco.We all were tried to get response from Blu but every time blu responded with different replies.Many Q owners started to point out initial bugs and the upgrade for this device hold back and after sometime the recovery image was removed from WDRT.

    4)And Finally on April 8 MS added recovery image with new firmware. Neither Blu or MS has officially announced it or Blu didn't gave firmware ota.

    Now to your questions:
    1) It is true that It was me who figured out the upgrade. Blu did not informed me about the procedure or not provided any update. At first i flashed my phone through wdrt and my phone was updated to the new firmware.My both sims were working fine at that time.The phone was directly updated to the win 8.1 GDR2 . Now when you run upgrade advisor app after flashing it will check for the firmware available on the update server and try to match with your phone's firmware when it matches your phone is eligible for the update.
    .
    2) Future updates: Again same thing firmware. At present we all are on this device are up to date (10586.218 production) because it is official public release.Now another update probably Redstone ( anniversery update) is currently is in development phase and there are many issues are with this build.Now MS needs to add this firmware to their preview build server so that we might get access to these builds through windows insider. Now the only question remains whether Blu will be releasing any firmware updates? I already infomed Blu about this procedure but they only told me that they have forwarded my details to their techincal support team. I guess i tried to solve your doubts. If you still skeptical about this update then you can definitely contact BLU and Micrsoft. I think they are the ones who will give you more proper response.

    Yes you will continue to receive future Windows 10 cumulative updates. Build .218 is also an example for that. Erstwhile it was .164 and we got the upgrade to .218 alongwith other phones including 550, 950 and 950XL. Consider it the official one which you are using.

    Right now Firmware update through wdrt is mandatory for x150e model for the win 10 mobile upgrade.Before flashing i was on 15009 and upgrade advisor was telling that the upgrade isn't available for the device as they are determining whether the phone is eligible or not.As of now i am on 15013 from 15009 and successfully upgraded to win 10 mobile.

    Ok, sg, I'll recheck mine tonight. I believe that my x150q is still on 15009 and that the OTA update that I received did not update my firmware. I'll check it again.

    There is no more q or e version for this model because Blu has released the common firmware 15013. However instead of providing ota they just modified recovery image silently and firmware and it is available in wdrt. So I believe if you wish to downgrade to win 8.1 then there are 2 scenarios:
    1) If you flash your older recovery image (15008 probably downloaded via wdrt earlier which is replaced by this new image) Your win 8.1 version will be win 8.1 GDR update. Later 2 pending updates will take you to win 8.1 GDR2 but there won't be any change in the firmware.If you run the advisor app then you might get firmware isn't available result.

    2)If you flash this latest image through wdrt then the phone will be directly updated to GDR2 and the firmware will be from 15008 to 15013. Now this is what important when upgrade advisor check for the updates it checks for the available firmware on the update server and then try to matches with the phone's firmware once the firmware matches the upgrade will be available. Hopefully Blu releases new firmware via ota next instead of tedious flashing process.

    .218 is a public release and it is available for non insiders also.

    Figure it out the same method as I saw an update firmware on WDRT 1 weeks ago, my device was detect has a Qualcomm_snapdragon_device so need to select my device manually to do a restore & update to the new firmware 15013.

    After that the update be available in upgrade advisor.

    After get all the cumulative updates (10.0.10586.218 is the last) & do a hard reset cause of many bugs, I really recommend to people who are not familiar or can deal with problems to not update to Windows 10 mobile.

    The OS is still buggy (maybe that was the update hasn't be announced yet) so stay on windows 8.1 it work better.

    For the others it's still in beta testing so do this at your own risk.

    I think the update from Blu will be a permanent win 10 recovery image. Currently all the bugs are seen in win 10 because of faulty win 8.1 image which might beyond repairable. So again it is a wild guess, Blu might bring modified win 10 recovery image so that if any issues arrises in future it would be easy to bring back to win10 stable just like Lumia x50 series.

    Yep probably got many bugs on my Lumia 830 too, so think it's windows 10 mobile that isn't stable enough.

    Hope with the anniversary update will get much improvements if not I go back & stay on 8.1.

    Is anyone having battery issues with BLU Win HD LTE. Battery drains much faster than charging rate. And charging takes long time even when phone is on standby. If charger is an issue, recommend a charger (I have tried many).

    Hmmm Package for Blu WIn JR w410a ( US Variant) has been removed from WDRT. I think the real update is really on the way for both HD and JR LTE.

    Mine had the same problem. I did a hard reset and i believe it is stable now. The only way is to always turn on battery saver.

    I think by June it should all be fixed and there will be a an official OAT update for the firmware. BLU is mainly an android manufacturer I guess their Windows team is quite small.
