    Wow. That is a bit lengthy. I cannot say I know of any other methods.

    In 15063 news, Cortana can't seem to connect to the Internet to allow sending a text. It will gather info for my day though?! This whether I am on LTE, or sitting 10 feet from my wifi hub... Rebooted the phone to no avail.

    Hmm I have not used Cortana much yet. I ll have to check this out.

    Thank you. It's okay. I'm really liking the build quality for the HTC one M8.

    This is where I'm currently stuck at the moment with trying to enable developer mode on my phone and sideload interop.(Unless I'm doing something incorrectly). I've unlocked and it with registering it, but I can't seem to enable it on my phone to go into developer mode to sideload Interop. I'm lost. My next attempt is to try that lengthy guide as my only option.

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/one...ndows-t3465796

    Any other way around to get developer mode to show up on Windows 8.1 Update 2?
    Developer mode setting was always under update & security as long as I can remember. I would make sure the firmware and os are definitely up to date. I thought 8.1 update 2 had an additional update but was still called update 2 but had some minor changes. ( a slightly changed build) I could be wrong but I don't remember developer mode always being on 8.1 or at least not in that location. It appeared there as my phone evolved.

    Cortana sending texts may have been a Microsoft server issue. I just tried it, and it worked as it should. Still need to see about reading texts. Cortana did let me reply to a text yesterday, which I also thought was odd. But that was later in the afternoon yesterday. Again, maybe server related.
    Cortana will play a song from your playlist, or from albums on your phone, upon request. Previous build didn't quite have this ironed out.

    I don't have update and security. I have update and back up. Mine says that It's Windows 8.1 update 2. I will post screenshot later.

    You could also see if you find a windows preview app in the store. There might be an app to allow the developer option.
    Sorry I'm not 100% on any info I give you because I did this myself long before windows 10 ever even came out. HTC hung us out to dry a long time ago. The people in this forum worked harder on keeping this phone alive than anybody in HTC ever did.

    Sidebar: I'd like to see HTC bring out a follow-on to the One M8 for Windows, with stereo speakers, a stylus, and hand-writing recognition. (It would help me when I insert notes or edit documents.) It would be smart to again use the same hardware as one of their top Android units, to give us users a decent batch of accessories to choose from.

    Back on topic. If Cortana didn't have to have an internet connection for doing every single task, it would help.

    Battery life in build 15065 is back to where it should be, I think. I can end the day with about 60%, which was typical for me. Depending upon use, of course.

    I always said they should at least give cortana her own data settings that can over ride other data and privacy settings.

    On 15063 I'm having issues with screen rotation and the touch keyboard doesn't always pop up when its supposed too. Soft resets usually fix them temporarily.

    Yup. I have the same issue and also sometimes I can't hang up after a phone call without locking/unlocking the phone. I provided all these issue to Insider already but I suggest you do also so they hear it and work on fixing it.

    I haven't seen the phone hang up issue yet, but have seen the keyboard issue. Sometimes I see a zoom issue when opening emails. The message loads, blows up about 300%, then sometimes settles back to original.

    I have had both of those issues in a previous build. I think I may have changed attentive phone settings to fix the hang up issue.

    Anyone notice the battery heating up when using Edge for 15 minutes or so? Does Edge reload the webpage for you if you shut the phone off (i.e sleep, not power down) for a minute and then go back on. I also had issues with YouTube, trying to skip forward after the page reloaded. Video froze, audio continued. But if you try to skip forward again, the page freezes entirely.
    I did put my phone back to "Fast", but haven't gotten the 15063.2 or 15077 update yet.

    Not sure if the heat up is definitely edge or not. I will have to pay more attention. But I do get these issues also. And I'm pretty sure edge is reloading my pages even when I just switch apps from the background too.

    Also noticed the battery warming up when I was browsing the Windows Central app.
    And, I discovered my phone was still on Release Preview, hence the reason I wasn't seeing any updates. 15063.2 is downloaded, but battery is too low at the moment.

    Can't see any dramatic changes from 15063. Battery doesn't seem to heat up quite as much. Had to reboot my phone two times to get the landscape/portrait thing working right. Edge seems to work better

    So, the newest update, April 2017 update for ARM devices 15063.138 is downloaded and ready to install. Hoping the battery heat, portrait thing, and other stuff I've reported. Will install and report my findings....

    As an aside, the Ebay app now tells me it's no longer supported, or won't be soon. But there is no update in the Windows Store.

    No major complaints on the .138 build. It is odd the calculator will not go to landscape mode though.
    Also, it seems 15204 is out, but I am not getting an update notice. 15204 culled the officially supported update field to about 10 phones... I have not used Interop Tools to edit again, so that may do the trick. Or not.

    I got 15063.2, then 15063.138. Which also had the super long name. I do not know which ring it has been pushed to.

  20. Matthew Crawford's Avatar
    Ok. That's what I think happened here. I'm thinking I haven't got .138 because my phone has HTC registries. Maybe I will try setting things to Lumia 735 and see if I get it.

    Well, i think we are now out of the race. I changed my registry back to a 950, and got nothing for the past two days. Figured the R3 update would have shown up by now, or 15204. but zip.

    Yeah. I received .138

    Got an update. I was going to revert to HTC naming, when I discovered that one of the lumia values didn't get written when I went in previously to change them. So, once I corrected that and check for updates, Windows 10 Insider Preview 15205.0 (feature 2) was ready.
    Downloaded, but can't install until the battery gets above 40%... Will share anything of interest.
