    oh, okay, yea was just curious if it was the newest build or not. I would say 9941 had its issues, but the newest build for me atleast gave me more issues, but you might have better luck

    I don't want to get to the new build. I want to go back to windows 8.1. Do you know how to do that?

    ignore the above post that is 100% incorrect

    The only way I am aware of is using a rom and then putting the phone in bootloader mode. Tho only rom I was able to find was for windows 8.1.1 for verizion tho

    This tool does not support the M8 yet, so that won't work

    So I was sitting around bored today, and figured what the hell I will try windows 10 again.

    I also took the previous advice of disabling dot view as well as all htc specfic programs to see what would happen.

    The phone seems to be working fine. I have rebooted it once with no issue and have not had any major issues so far. I had noticed a bit of lag and longer then normal loading screens but that is about it.

    I also installed Win10 Tech Preview. Have you figured out a way to roll back to 8.1?

    Only if you've got the Verizon version, otherwise you'll have to wait

    Just used the newly updated recovery tool to revert back to 8.1 on the M8. Quick and easy

    Guys,

    I have an unlocked M8 from T-Mobile. I actually would like to upgrade only to WP8.1 GDR2 not Windows 10.

    Does the M8 upgrade go directly to Windows 10 or does it upgrade first to GDR2 like the Lumia 930 & 1520?

    Moreover, will it change my phone unlocking status? Thanks

    Ok so earlier I updated my verizon m8 to gdr2 ... I was wondering, is that what prevents us from updating to windows 10 tp?. In the windows blog post today it lists a specific version for the Verizon m8 that will be excluded. Is a downgrade worth trying to going to windows 10 again..hmmm decisions.. decisions

    I just got the 10 update and it is not going well- start screen only freezes up - like the screen size is mis matched or something???

    Same here.

    ​It's like the resolution is slightly off.

    Also, in addition to the resolution being off I didn't have any text message app. I'm going back to 8.1 for now.

    I also installed the windows 10 update. However, my phone won't complete the boot up process. It gets stuck in a loop; shows the HTC splash screen, then windows splash screen, then restarts and goes through the cycle again.

    HTC M8 (windows) - T-Mobile.

    Yes I have the m8 for Verizon I saw that it is now supported on the insider list of supported devices. However the app tells me that there are no preview builds available and when I check phone update it says its up to date . What's the deal?

    I installed 10080 and it was a disaster, first the screen didnt scale correctly, and then the phone locked up. I tried to re-install 8.1 and that went fine, went through the whole install process and again, the same thing. I'm rolling back to 8.1 as I type this but for all the time that the WP10 development team has had, you'd think there would be a bit more polish to this build, and that ALL phones that are capable of running it would do so with minimal issues or bugs by this build. I gotta admit I'm kinda losing faith in WP and with all the new phones running competing OS's Microsoft is losing ground slowly day by day......frustrating.

    WPRT from 10080 to 8.1 isn't working for my One M8... It tells me to restart and put it into boot-loader mode, and when I do my screen looks like the example (with a few lines of info then some barcodes) but nothing happens in the app or on the phone. Anyone else have this or anyone know what's going on and what might help?


    EDIT: Now I get to the software selection screen and it tells me there is no package available on the server. Any ides there?

    I have rolled back to 8.1 no problem so not sure what issue you are having. I am on 10080 right now and it works great. The only issue I am having is with invisible apps and some store apps not downloading.

    I tried last night/this morning and after installing, transferring back data and rebooting, it gets caught in an endless loop of reboots--never getting past the carrier splash screen. Ideas?

    Hard reset using the hardware key combination, hold down vol down button till exclamation Mark is displayed on screen , then press vol up, vol down , power button, vol down , phone will reboot and reset, this will erase data , plug it in , this will skip the boot loop

    I do have an M8 and i isntalled the update (10080) that was available as of Monday...the build is jsut too buggy..unless you have a spare phone that you want to try this on, I would recommend you wait for the next build
