    OK, I turned off show more tiles and now the live tiles fill the screen, but everything on the other screens are so small you can hardly see it without a magnifying glass.

    Under "Ease of Access" and "More Options" there is a "Text Scale" that will help with the text size as a work around.

    Only reason the 8x is getting this build is because the build has a problem with the detectoids, Gabe is advising that you reflash your devices as the phone is still unsupported in this build and problems can come up.

    I finally gave up on the rebooting and did the "Reset" in post 45. It then looked like it was going back to 8.1 but did the Windows 10 installation. It looks like it recovered most of my Windows 8.1 settings, but there is something way wrong with the screen resolution like mentioned in the posts above. Everything including the tiles are very small and do not fill out the screen. Not sure how they will fix it.
    I tried doing the hard resent from the link in post #45, but it doesn't show me any exclamation mark instead takes me to the rotating gear screen and the again switches off after some time.
    Any tip?

    What an interesting conundrum! Other than the tiny elements and text it seems to be working.

    Performing a factory reset using phone buttons seems to reset it to Windows 10

    1. Turn the power off.
    2. Press and hold the VOLUME DOWN button, and then briefly press the POWER button. Release the VOLUME DOWN button when you see an icon on the screen.
    3. Then press the following hardware buttons in sequence: VOLUME UP > VOLUME DOWN > POWER > VOLUME DOWN.

    I can't do this. In the sequence, when i press the power button the phone reboots immediately...
    I can't restore the phone with Windows phone recovery tools either... stuck on this right now

    I was having random reboots even after trying your steps to do a factory reset. The problem lies when the phones started to ask if I would like to restore from a previous phone settings I opted for a fresh start instead. Till now it seems to solve my problems of the random reboot issues.

    Kind of funny in a way that we are now stuck with an apparently working installation of Windows 10 on phones not approved yet by Microsoft and Microsoft put it there! We will not be able to go forward unless Microsoft eventually includes the 8X in the production Windows 10 release and we cannot go back to 8.1 because the 8X Windows Recovery Tool does not work.

    Thanks man, it looks like you're running Windows 10 on some tablet XD looks great, hope it performs great also. I believe settings shouldn't look like that but that's scaling issue you're experiencing.

    Is Beats audio missing?

    Yup.. Seems like it. Reinstalling Windows Insider, hopefully will get a fix for that.. Looks like MS have no choice but to support the 8X now XD

    Beats still here ^_^

    The icon you mention, is that the HTC logo or is it after that?

    Woke up to see my HTC 8x installing some major update and having it rebooting every 5 min or so. I later noticed it was Win10, and came here to confirm my suspicions; Microsoft released a broken update for unsuported devices. HOW THE **** DOES THAT HAPPEN?!?! Tried going back to Win8.1 (factory reset guide)but it doesn't work, it reinstaled Win10, fortunately after a clean restore it not unstable anymore and seems to work fine for now, but the UI scaling is all kinds of ****ed up.
    Microsoft needs to fix this ASAP! I strongly doubt they will though...

    I can't figure out how to reset my phone. I've tried the WP Recovery Tool 2.1.2, but it won't pick up my phone and when I follow the instructions for that, I just get a white screen with green letters and nothing happens.

    Can anyone give me a clue?

    I have found one big issue, video playback does not work, and ends in hard reboot. That points to the graphic driver issue FearL0rd mentioned.
    I also did a reset to setup phone as new and not restore anything. But random reboots are still a thing.

    I hope not many people that have this as only device got this update.

    HTC is the biggest surprise to me. I think they should be the size they are and pump out good quality phones. They build a good product. They built my first Windows phone when I was on Sprint and it boots up and is as solid as it was the day I got it and I'm its second owner.
    You'd think that a FREE OS like android would make life easier for HTC but maybe not.
    My first two Windows Phones were HTC (8X and One M8), but it seems like windows phone users got second class treatment from their customer support. I had overheating issues with my M8 and finally gave up on HTC. I'm now using a Lumia 735 and loving it. It just seems like Microsoft is more interested in supporting their product than HTC was.
