    That is not the latest firmware. You should restore from WDRT to get the 15013 firmware. This provided much better stability and battery life using the for me. I had all sorts of stability issues with the 10.0.14364.0 build on the 15010 Firmware. Once I rebuilt using the 15013 firmware, I am really stable and now my Cortana voice search works without crashing.

    The only thing I get offered from WDRT is 8.1 update 2? No choice of firmware is shown? I then load the upgrade advisor app to get Win 10 etc etc... How do you get 15013?

    Update: turns out that the .15013 firmware is offered for an X150Q and the only firmware offered for the X150E in Europe is the .15010 version...

    I just launched WDRT and it first installed the latest version of WDRT: 3.7.18601 as shown at the top of each screen.
    When I plugged my phone in it was detected,and I chose the Q version when given the choice of E or Q version. The next screen shows that the latest firmware is 15013.

    If you click Install Software, yes, you will be rolled back to WP 8.1 and have to restore and upgrade, but you will also get the latest firmware from BLU and MS

    Yes I know all that as I had found that out for myself but how is a person to know whether the .15013 firmware is appropriate for a X150E as well as a X150Q model?

    Update: No need to answer seeremlive. Turns out that the X150Q is North American spec and the X150E is for Europe. That makes the LTE bands different and also means that the .15013 firmware is NOT appropriate for the X150E.

    This thread was about the Q, so I thought that is what we were talking about. I missed the part in the post above where you said you were on the E. I am really surprised that the E hasn't been updated yet. That makes no sense.

    CPN200, I have exactly the same model/firmware/WIF build as you but:

    1. I am not being offered the latest WIF build 14388

    2. My screen is now blanking as soon as I make a call, I have to hit the power button twice to turn the screen back on during a call.

    Are you seeing this?

    You're quite right of course but when I did a search for the subject matter of BLU Win HD LTE and firmware, this was just about the only thread that came up at that time so I wanted to make sure that as much accurate info about BOTH hardware branches went into this thread so others wouldn't have to go through the difficulties I had to...

    Unfortunately, the Windows Insider Program's ability to auto update seems to be broken on our stream of the current software build of Windows 10 mobile. I'm afraid that this means that every time you want the newest build of Windows 10 (believe it or not!) you need to use the WRT process to go back to Windows 8.1 update 2, then load Upgrade adviser to re-download and install the 1511 build of Windows 10 and then (phew!) install the Windows Insider App to invoke the latest and greatest on the Fast ring! It is all a major pain in the rear but is the only reliable way I know of just now. The latest builds will not come up automatically on their own it seems...

    Somehow get the attention of someone at Microsoft and have them add the BLU WIN HD LTE to the Insider update stream.

    Anyone running into majority of apps crashes with fast ring? Microsoft Health app never launch and just crash right at start up, and that is just one example.

    I had to WDRT back to 8.1 and go back to RP to be able to use it daily, granted the fast/slow ring are not really meant for everyday use.

    Also, for those who have WDRT back to 8.1 got any apn problem? Ever since I downgraded, I can not get the apn to auto update/work with my SIM. I have to manually add the apn for internet to work, and can never get MMS to work no matter what I tried (8.1, w10RP, fast ring/slow ring). Same SIM into a freshly reset android device (Z3 compact, 6.0.1) all apn worked without manual input.

    Note sure about the health app crashing. But right now I'm on 14390 build, and so far, so good. Still some quirkiness here and there, but still good.

    About the APN: Actually, I keep forgetting to do a "feedback" note about this. But with my carrier (Metro PCS), W10M, nor WP8.1 will not get the APN, MMS settings on it's own. I have to manually enter them. I totally forgot about this when I got the BLU and setting it up in the MS Store. The techs kept looking at it, trying various things, exchanged the phone, then I remembered I had to let it use the parent carrier (T-Mobile) auto settings, just during the setup process.

    After it is all done with the setup, then I have to go in an manually set the APN, MMS settings for my carrier. So Android'sh.

    Sorry if I'm highjacking the post.

    Even with entered the MMS APN manually, it still doesn't work with my carrier. Odd thing was it worked right out of the box. It is until I downgrade using WDRT things seems to go haywire with the APN. And my carrier, Rogers, is the main carrier... Similar to AT&T and not a small MVNO.

    Even stranger thing was popping my SIM into my android device worked right away... Very unlike the typical android experience...

    Have you tried calling Rogers tech support and verifying the APN, MMS settings? Doing a quick search I found several variants of supposed working settings, but that's a problem. Unless you want to try them all.

    I've tried them all, in different configurations and resetting. However, I haven't gone back and check the MMS settings I have on my 920...good excuse to power up that old beast.

    Just an update, powered on the Lumia 920 unlocked ATT branded on 8.1 denim. APN all blank and set to automatic, internet and mms works without any manual setting.

    Back on the Blu Win HD, still doesn't work with the apn left blank. Internet work, but still can't get mms to go through.

    Bought my Wife a BLU Win HD - X150Q ($50 amazing deal). Got her from 8.1 to 10 using the Upgrade Advisor, I think that took her to .107
    I then got her enabled on the release preview ring with the insider app, but there were no updates. - Odd
    I left the insider program and the .420 (i think, or close) became available. Installed
    Re-enabled Release preview for a while, didn't see any other updates for a couple months.
    When I heard 14393.5 was out I moved her to the fast ring and it DID download and update, which was about a month or so ago.
    Since then tried moving RP, Slow and Fast rings. Still at .5, never saw .10 or .67.

    It does feel like Microsoft only enables certain builds for the Win BLU phones but I would like to know if anyone can confirm this speculation.

    No one is gonna listen. Sad but true. MS is very large company. So they will not listen to few of us. :'(

    I dropped out of the insider program for a bit, but because of how crappy the public release of 14393.67 update is I decided to jump back in and see if the newer builds resolve not receiving MMS and the health app crashing on launch these are my biggest annoyances but nothing is coming down even tho there is like at least two builds available for the fast ring can any one confirm that they have anything greater the 14393.67 in the insider program?

    Best I've managed over here in the UK for Win 10 Mobile v1607 is build 14393.5 which seems pretty solid. I suspect Windows 10 Mobile will become a relic of history soon anyway after the massive slump in sales over the last quarter. One of the main reasons why I've dropped out of the insider program more or less permanently now; at least for my BLU Win HD... (it's not my daily driver anyway as I have two other Android phones...)
