    Will the 0014.0100 FW update be distributed OTA through Settings > Phone Update, or must one use WDRT to get it? I see that some x3 users have the more recent version, but I am still on 0007.0088 and would like to move up.

    It showed up on WDRT last night. It hung on my work desktop but installed through my Surface Pro 3 at home. So far, so good.

    There's another thread about this, but it seems it was not published for Insiders yet. Daniel shared that someone was looking into it at MS. Looks like using WDRT is the only way to get it right now. I'm going to wait until Friday and if it's not released I'll use WDRT.

    There seems to either be a lot of confusion in the process or disinterest in getting these updates to insiders. Either way, I wouldn't hold your breath on ever getting this if you're an insider. I caved and did WDRT.

    I finally caved and am installing the update via WDRT as well. This is frustrating... that MS has had the insider program running for this long and stupid issues like this are still present.

    EDIT: Took a little while but I'm now on the latest firmware and back on the latest insider fast build - now to test for a few days. Looking forward to some camera improvements.

    I should have posted back sooner, but I eventually used WDRT as well. It was a white-knuckle experience this time because after the download the powerdown step left me stuck on the Goodbye screen for a couple of hours. The Nav Bar icons were available but did nothing. Eventually I forced a shutdown and restarted, which gave me the lightning bolt and gear screen -- which also froze. After a couple of hours more I connected again to WDRT, manually ID'd the phone when it would not happen automatically, and triggered the download process again -- my only option.This time when I restarted, the phone began with the hp initiation screen and continued with a successful standard boot into W10 where I could see the new firmware was in place. Then I spent the rest of the day rebuilding my preferred set up and upgrading to Fast Ring again. All is well and the camera experience is significantly improved..

    I may not try this approach again..

    I did WDRT too. Second time using it, no issue. Installed new FW, OS is 14393.321, which is a fairly fresh OS build for WDRT at least. Popped onto Fast Ring right away; next day received Fast Ring apps (18 in total including GroupMe).

    I bought an x3 over the weekend new. It arrived earlier today. To my surprise it was running this fw and build 14393.321. BTW I love this phone :)

    Nate, thanks. Mind comparing, if you have any newer versions like Hardware Version?
    Settings -> System -> Info, more information. What are your Hardware revision number (1.0.0 (R-DS) for me), Bootloader Version (520101) and Cell Hardware Version (1.0.0.0)?

    Best regards,
    Corwin

    I assume the DS specification in the Hardware Revision number stands for Double SIM, but what do the N and R mean? Are those regional codes?

    Good to know that the newest-delivered models are completely up to date on FW and Production Release version.

    Probably the EU variant? Mine is the N. America model, X9U42UT.

    Nice, any release notes? I sure hope we don't have to reset the device just to get the new firmware using WDRT, but somehow I'm already anticipating it :/

    I have not found any reports on it. I just hit check for updates as soon as I heard about, right after I posted. Already downloaded and installed.

    Hmm, I'm not seeing it, are you on an insider build?

    Firmware is released on WDRT and OTA at the same time.
    This update doesn't bring any new features, just seems to be minor fixes.

    Damnit, I bet they still haven't worked out how to release updates to all branches/builds. I hate complaining about this but I expect better. Guess I'm firing up WDRT when I get home...

    Update is on Production, but not seeing it either on Fast Ring. Not sure what is up with that. First update it came a few hours later, but it did come OTA for Fast. Second never did (had to WDRT). Let's see what happens here this time.
