    I'm in U.S. Unlocked double SIM 950 XL. AT&T service. Was on Windows Insider, so had .63 OS. Left Insider, uninstalled app. Before doing soft reset, tried checking for updates. Firmware update appeared. Installed, restarted, have new firmware, still have .63 OS, and still show LTE on AT&T.

    In US, Lumia 950 XL Dual Sim, with Insider with .63. After reading Bells0 comment I left the insider program, the last screen noted your device is reading for "PRODUCTION -THRESHOLD", after confirming (by pressing check) I went to settings-Updates and there it was downloading MICROSOFTMDG..Berry nice (Borat voice)

    So with yesterday's Insider app update I have at least one report that you can now leave the program, soft reset (not hard) grab the firmware/any updates and then go back to Insider.

    Unfortunately, I did a hard reset (actually, it works really well now) and cannot verify. Can anyone add anything to this?
    Thanks for the heads up on this! Glad I didn't hard reset and decided to wait it out. And yes, worked for me after signing out, re-registering and then getting the message I had been removed from the program. It'll say your phone is now ready for Production Threshold.
    Nothing new showing up. Left the Insider program. Did a soft reset. "Device is up to date".

    Trying to repeat process one more time.

    EDIT: Same results. Confirmed left the Insiders Program. No new updates. Not sure if I need to physically uninstall the Insider App.
    Try re-registering and then leaving the program again. I had the same results the first 2 times. On the third try, it removed me from the program and then gave a message that it had done such (indicating it was ready for "Production Threshold").

    Interesting. Seems I have the old app still when trying to re-register. But checking the Windows Store shows no updates and searching the app just shows I have it installed. WTF.

    After the Windows Insider app update I had to rejoin the program, restart the phone and leave insiders.

    Once I left Insiders the firmware update shown in the phone update section without restarting the phone.

    Now, I just hope that it doesn't break anything since my phone has been great but battery was still a let down 16-20 hours pre OS.63 and looks like 24-26 hours post OS.63.

    If this makes it get even better I will be 100 % happy with my phone.

    I did the same. Left the program and immediately got prompt that a new firmware is available, go check phone updates. Doing so did not bring any updates.

    I used to be on Windows Insider since I wanted Cortana on my htc8x :) I don't see the app on my 950xl so they must've booted me off? Is the update worth it? Thanks!

    I could not see the update on the windows insider program. I uninstalled it and could not then reinstall the new version, saying it was already installed. I rebooted the phone and then was able to install the new windows insider program, I enrolled in fast ring, and after a restart, unenrolled from the app, and it then let me see the firmware upgrade, which is installing now. A few steps, but far batter than a phone reset! Glad Microsoft figured out a way around the firmware update issue for insiders!

    I got that same screen, but when I went to updates, I was then able to get the firmware. I did not have to reboot, but you might try that.

    When going through the leave the program process I get to the last step which is a blank black screen. I've tried re-registering and re-leaving with no progress. On insider .63 ATT dual sim unlocked. Sounds like I'll have to do the hard reset route.

    Update: persistence pays off. 5th try did the trick. Firmware update in progress.

    So, how can we explain the following:
    No firmware updates because of Insider. How come then no 63?
    No Insider, ok, no 63, but how come no firmware?

    I can confirm what the others has said! you leave the insider and THEN UNINSTALL the app before going to the update.. check and you will see the HW update... no need to restart or anything. I checked the update before uninstalling insider and got no update, as soon as I left and uninstalled the insider app, I went back into update and BOOM update was there! I am now rebooting and hope this doesn't muck up my phone as it was running perfectly! good luck to all

    Nothing works. My PC says my preview builds need to be fixed. Seems like I am out of Insider. What a crap.

    You are trying to update your PC?

    Probably. Opting out of preview on a phone unregisters the Microsoft Account, so if it was used for preview on other phones or a PC, you have to register as an Insider again.

    No, I am not updating my PC. Since PC is out of Insider that means the phone has been removed from it too. I think.
