    I can verify that this patch has my phone working better than the .103 build alone did. A lot less freezing. Although the camera app is still a bit funky. It seems to clash with the multi lenses or something. But I do use this phone as a daily driver if anybody's wondering. And sorry I'm unsure of the answers to the previous questions, sorry.

    Yes. But if your still on windows 8.1. I'm not sure you can get insider app anymore. Try getting the windows insider app. And if you get it. Go with release preview ring. Then follow these steps in the forum.

    I was finally able to get the intraops tool on my htc work as in the initial description, however I had to use InteropToolsApp_beta_1.7_0.0.157.0_arm . the older and newer versions would get hung up when accessing "platform". This version shows up as an app rather than in settings. I followed the directions otherwise and updated to 14393.67 . Then after changing in settings to allow windows preview again, I was able to get the 14393.105 update and this is running very well. camera is working. I still have phone id set to 735, haven't changed back yet. pretty happy now.

    I'm on an old version of Windows 10 Mobile. Version 1511. OS Build: 10.0.10586.494. This version drives me crazy so I was hoping that Redstone was more stable and reliable.

    And when you say "follow these steps", you are strictly referring to post #1? Do any of the steps have to be updated? I tried to follow thru all the pages and I just don't understand the language people are speaking. I guess it's because I've never done this kind of stuff before.

    Follow the posts in the early forum talk yes. But while your registry's are set for the Nokia phone you may want to turn your insider preview settings off or try switching release rings and this may trigger the red stone anniversary updates

    I was able to install the latest redstone build (14393.3) on my Verizon M8 and its working out suprisingly well for this being an unsupported device. I've posted instructions on how to do this below.

    NOTE: THIS PHONE IS NOT OFFICIALLY SUPPORTED BY THE REDSTONE BUILDS. I HAVE ONLY TESTED THIS USING BUILD 14393.3 ON THE INSIDER FAST RING. MY PHONE IS RUNNING ON VERIZON WIRELESS, THIS MAY OR MAY NOT WORK ON TMOBILE/AT&T/OTHER CARRIERS. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BRICK/DAMAGE YOUR PHONE OR LOSE YOUR DATA. BACKUP EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU TRY THIS. IF ANY OF THESE STEPS SEEM TOO COMPLICATED DO NOT CONTINUE!

    IMPORTANT NOTICE AS OF JULY 24, 2016! MICROSOFT HAS REMOVED THIS DEVICE FROM ALL RINGS OF THE INSIDER PROGRAM. IF YOU RESTORE TO WINDOWS PHONE 8.1, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO UPGRADE TO WINDOWS 10 AGAIN. I'M WORKING ON A TUTORIAL TO GET BACK TO WINDOWS 10, AND I WILL POST THIS ONCE AVAILABLE.

    NOTE ON THE VERIZON MODEL: DO NOT HARD RESET AFTER THE UPGRADE! YOU WILL LOSE YOUR DATA AND MMS APN! - I'm going to reset mine to 8.1 and upgrade again, which should give me back data access. I've found Verizon APNs online, but I'm not sure if these will work or not- if I find out I will update this post.

    If you're using a different carrier, your model numbers may be different- write them down somewhere as you will need them after you install the update. To install redstone, we're essentially going to change our phone's model number to a redstone supported model and then change it back after the update has installed. The Lumia 735 seems to work, so I'm going to use that model.

    What you'll need:
    • Interop Tools installed on your phone
    • Windows Insider app


    Modifying the registry:
    1. Open Interop Tools (Settings->Extras)
    2. Click the "Registry Browser" button
    3. Open "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE"
    4. Open "SYSTEM"
    5. Open "Platform"
    6. Open "DeviceTargetingInfo"
    7. Open "PhoneManufacturer"
    8. In the "Value Data" field, enter "NOKIA" (all caps). Click "Write"
    9. Open "PhoneManufacturerModelName"
    10. In the "Value Data" field, enter "RM-1089_1087". Click "Write"
    11. Open "PhoneModelName"
    12. In the "Value Data" field, enter "Lumia 735". Click "Write"


    Once you have modified the registry, open the Windows Insider app and join the fast ring. Reboot your device when prompted. After the reboot, check for updates and you should start downloading the latest redstone build. Once this has installed (it will take a while- took about 15 minutes on my phone) follow the steps below to restore your previous registry values- this seemed to fix some minor issues I noticed when using the phone after the update.

    1. Open Interop Tools (Settings->Extras)
    2. Click the "Registry Browser" button
    3. Open "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE"
    4. Open "SYSTEM"
    5. Open "Platform"
    6. Open "DeviceTargetingInfo"
    7. Open "PhoneManufacturer"
    8. In the "Value Data" field, enter "HTC" (all caps). Click "Write"
    9. Open "PhoneManufacturerModelName"
    10. In the "Value Data" field, enter "HTC6995LVW". Click "Write"
    11. Open "PhoneModelName"nice work
    12. In the "Value Data" field, enter "HTC6995LVW". Click "Write"

    Yes its pretty simple actually. Your hardest part is going to be getting "interop tools" app. there is a link somewhere in this forum to XDA developer website who has it. you will need to put your phone in developer mode to allow it to download it because you are essentially installing an app that's not from the windows store. Then you will need an app to extract a compressed or zip file, that app you can get from the windows store. And developer mode can be turned on and off as needed in your phone update settings area. Then once you have "interop tools" proceed to these directions from benj

    This part makes me nervous:

    "NOTE ON THE VERIZON MODEL: DO NOT HARD RESET AFTER THE UPGRADE! YOU WILL LOSE YOUR DATA AND MMS APN!"

    What does this warning mean? It doesn't mean that I can't reboot the phone, right? Maybe it's his phrasing. Because in my mind, a hard reset is equivalent to a cold boot. Does he actually mean "reset to factory"?

    Yes hard reset meaning factory. I have never needed to do this. But I will say on occasion the phone does get a bit wonky and then I just soft reset or just a regular reboot. Soft reset is holding volume down and power together until reboot. A hard reset I'm not sure but it's a long series of steps that you can't mistake. Usually just power off and on works fine.

    Okay, so I can't seem to get this interops to install.

    I set the phone to developer mode.
    I downloaded InteropTools Releases.zip to my PC and extracted it.
    I emailed InteropToolsApp_0.0.173.0_arm.appxbundle to myself.
    I checked my email on the phone and saved the file to my SD card.
    I went to file explorer to install the file. It happened really quick which made me wonder if it really installed.
    I went to Settings > Extras. and it's not there.

    I also browsed through all my apps and it's not there either.

    Okay, then I followed Teddy's thing by installing the dependencies.
    Microsoft.NET.Native.Framework.1.3.appx
    Microsoft.NET.Native.Runtime.1.4.appx
    Microsoft.VCLibs.ARM.12.00.Universal.appx
    Microsoft.VCLibs.ARM.14.00.appx

    Still no good. No Interops

    After you install those .NET packages, you can tap the interop tools app you have there and it should install. There is another more advanced method that works using the WinAppDeployCmd.exe via the Windows 10 SDK.

    I can confirm that the latest cumulative update 14393.187 is downloading right now. Using NOKIA Lumia 950 settings.

    Update: Installing it now. Will update again if successful.

    Update 2: Finished installing without errors. :D

    I remember having an issue with downloading the right file so look closely at that, and I downloaded it right to my phone and extracted it on my phone. Not sure if that will make much of a difference.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm using an HTC One M8 so I can't help you to resolve your issue immediately. I will however do some research on your behalf.

    Update ... Ok I managed to install W10 on my HTC One M8 from WP8.1 Update 2 ( No thanks to Microsoft for removing the M8 from TP supported devices.) ... Now trying to work my way up to AU & then Redstone.

    Update .. 14393.67 is currently downloading. WooooWiieee !!!!

    Update ... 14393.67 Installed to my HTC ONE M8 after going back to WP8.1 U2.
    After following the steps outlined in this thread, I was able to upgrade to Redstone and had been running on 10 for the past few months. Unfortunately, I had to use the recovery tool on my HTC One m8 after the latest fast ring build didn't work (back to 8.1 ). To get back to 10, I've tried following the steps on the Russian site linked in the other post, but I keep getting an error:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Tools\bin\i386>iutool.exe -V -p "C:\cabs"

    Any ideas about how to solve this issue or another workaround?

    Are you using Lumia 950 settings on Verizon carrier or are you on a different carrier? And if so what are you registry plug in's

    Once you get interops tools it's pretty simple. To get the updates you just have to put the Lumia registry's back in and run an update check again. That's what I have been doing.

    I am using the Lumia 950 settings and I'm on T-Mobile. I haven't even bothered reverting my settings back to the M8s since it'll have to be changed again anyway. I am also not downloading fast ring builds, only release preview.

    As for being on T-Mobile, I didn't change anything else other than what is outlined in the steps of the OP. My data has continued to work as well as everything else.
