    Again two firmwares:
    15010:Only windows insider technical previews.Production(10586)+Redstone(14xxx)technical previews.
    15013:Official update through upgrade advisor app+Redstone(14xxx)technical previews through windows insider app.
    I tried 14332.1001 Redstone preview on both firmwares and it was a terrible mess.
    The strange thing is that release preview ring does not work on both firmwares.
    Tried 14295, downgraded within few days as well, so I suppose Redstone should go public only by the end of summer, or more realistically knowing MS - end of year.

    Interesting, so I suppose there might 2 causes, one is that MS patched the hole or you have some conflicting settings on the phone.

    If you have time to spare - you could hard reset your device, start fresh (w/o restoring backups), install insider app and check then, if the update is available you could restore from backup once you get to w10m.

    Otherwise - wait for official release.

    I suppose that your MOID is 000-33 and branch WPB_CXE_R2 (can be found in the insider app about screen).
    in this moment the insider app ist running and download the upgrade

    Hard reset is optional once you get to the .107, however it is recommended to do one when you update to the newest release.

    Glad to help, but don't forget abhijit pore, he's the one who pointed out that the device gets to .107 before going to Redstone builds, thus allowing to upgrade.

    Grabbed the latest build .318 and it definitely Seems Faster and also has some battery life improvements... :)

    Update: Battery life is best with this build...even better than 8.1 I suppose...

    Indeed it seems to be faster and even more stable, battery life - perfect, so far in a day (24hrs) it lost just 2% of the charge.

    Got a problem guys, after trying to hard reset on build 14332.1001 had a :-( smiley with a bootloop.

    I restore my phone via WDRT on the US firmware cause it doesn't seems to cause a problem (it doesn't before only Windows 10 did) & is got the most update firmware (15013 compare to 15010) however does anyone had the same issues & which firmware guys do u recommend.
    (Got an X150e white model).

    Thanks.

    EDIT1: Finally rolled back to 8.1 firmware 15010 after trying 15013.

    Owner of the x150e on 15010, have used 15013 before.

    they both have their own pros and cons.

    15013:
    Better digitizer response than on 15010

    15010:
    Had annoying digitizer button backlight issues when using the phone on 15013 (button backlight was flashing rapidly), however on 15010 I don't have such issues.
    GPS reception seems to be better.


    P.S. if you think the newer the better - why not to try 15023 for JR LTE (x130e)? ( don't try, might brick the phone).
    It doesn't mean that newer firmware will work better, as it might be designed for another phone or model version, so IMO it is best to keep on your model firmware, because its been released to work on it and as W10m is accessible on 15010 by following method described already I have personally reflashed to 15010.

    Okay I did tried 14332.1001 on insider preview on both the firmwares.Here' my experience:

    15010:First upgraded through windows insider preview via fast ring. Initially it was updated to 10586.107.Then selected fast ring again and this time it was downloaded 14332.1001.After installation the trouble began at get going fast screen. Things were very slowly working. Things got even worse after a hard reset. Phone takes 3 to 5 minutes to reboot or turn off. Many apps were still showing pending in app list while in the store it was showing no updates. WhatsApp Facebook and many more apps were not opening. Data connection screen goes blank in settings. There were random freezes hangs experienced. Overall it was a horrific experience. So downgraded to 8.1 through wdrt with 15013.

    15013: This time upgraded through upgraded advisor app and then windows insider app fast ring got update of 14332.1001 insider preview.Same things happened as on 15010.But after a soft reset and hard reset this time got some relief.
    Vibration while navigation: For the first time I have literally experienced our Blu phone vibrating while navigating. For this you need to enable vibrate while navigation option in settings-personalisation menu. The vibration on the phone was cool.
    Surprisingly battery backup was very good. Data connection settings was showing options. But again problem with the app opening was still there. So finally decided to downgrade to 8.1 using wdrt with 15013.Again updated to win 10 through upgrade advisor app and now I am on 10586.318 with 15013 firmware.

    Vibration on capacitive buttons only and it has to be manually enabled in the settings. It required phone restart.I am also surprised because my older HTS Windows 8S also had a vibration on win 8.1.Hopefully in future updates Blu might enable it.

    Glance feature requires special display glasses. So cannot expect it with a software update. no work around either

    Why bother with 8.1? We need 10 and fast... If it won't get official at redstone release, i'll just reconsider other brands/operating sistems...

    From the Windowscentral news item on the latest insider release:
    "From Microsoft:

    We are excited to announce that we have added 3 new devices to the list of devices capable of receiving updates from our Development Branch as part of the Windows Insider Program: Lumia Icon, BLU Win HD LTE 150e, and BLU Win JR 130e."

    So I should think it very likely that the BLU Win HD LTE will receive REDSTONE!

    Just installed insider preview 14342.1001 then try to did a hard reset but during hard reset two spinning wheels would spin and then smile icon appeared. Tried it several times but it didn't worked. So once again back to 8.1 and then again win 10. But as I said earlier the vibration while navigation is still present in this build also.

    Yeah the insider preview app now poped up with an update. Do I need to manually back anything up? or will the normal cloud backup work just as well?

    I'm skipping this build. In the list of known issues you'll notice that they have a bug in Dual SIM phones they're working on, so I'm sitting this one out and sticking on .318 from the Prod ring. Its working really well, so staying put for now.

    "We are investigating issues with some Dual-SIM devices."

    Upgrade from 8.1 (15010) on my x150e to this build here is my experience:

    - Just get one problem during the process needed to restart my phone to complete all the migration steps.

    The device doesn't seems to heat up anylong & Edge is working like a charm also good to see the swipes gestures.

    Gonna post an update after a week of test but this build seems to be stable enough to be us for a daily usage.

    How are you guys able to get insider previews? Just installed 15010 firmware but i get "No builds" and ask me to try alternate logon without succes.

    EDIT: I had to make another outlook account to get (again) into insider. Now i got an update from slow ring. Tried production but no update pops up.
