    So what are the most up-to-date versions?

    OS: .63?
    Firmware: 01078.00027.15506.02005?

    I saw where one gentleman posted a firmware of: .29. - Is this now the most current?

    OS: I think .29 is the latest non-insider build, my 950XL now has .29
    Firmware: Mine is 01078.00027.15506.02031, with the .29

    I have tried all of the above solutions and still not getting the firmware. I do not know if it is because my OS is stuck on .36 but I am hoping Gabe has some good news today to cure this issue. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Dual Sim 950 XL on insider bought at MS store in NJ if that makes a difference.

    Isn't OS .36 the latest non-Insider version?

    Unlocked 950 XL in US, AT&T network, and I'm still on .29 with firmware .02005

    I had the same problem. I was able to get new firmware using WDRT.

    Yesterday I was still on Build .29. The night before I checked for “Phone Updates” and received the Firmware update (put me to FW: 01078.00027.15506.02005). After receiving the FW update, I checked the Build number, and it remained at OS Build .29

    So I installed Windows Insider (fast track), from the Store, went to “check for Updates” again…and was immediately given access to another update. After a period of time - for the download & install - I was prompted to “restart”. I did, checked again and saw that I had received OS Build .63. I have just opted back out of the Insider. Hopefully I haven’t offended the gremlins.

    USA, Dual Sim, Unlocked, Straighttalk (AT&T Network)

    Ok, I went into insider application clicked on settings, opted out, confirmed, uninstalled insider program...used WDRT to set my device (USA) to Firmware 15506.02005
    OS 10586.13058

    restoring my back up now...if this works I will never use the insider app again, the download of the package is brutal on the phone and hardly ever work and you get stuck at 0%, 5%.... WDRT seems much more stable and fast. I get it may be a few builds behind, but I don't trust MSFT to not screw up the builds. I would be more of a guinea pig if the insider app didn't suck so bad at getting updates to the phone and have such horrible user interface as to the progress of what is really going on with the downloads.

    I was extremely reluctant to join the Insider because I didn’t want to have to do a hard reset. I did it once on my 920 (because I had no other options), and even after backing up my apps I found that A LOT of data was missing that I had entered – the real problem is that I found out at a time that I really needed what WAS there.

    But, I ran across this delightful piece of information: Windows Insider app now lets you leave the program without a hard reset ? WinBeta - and decided to take a chance. I “think” I am glad I did, time will tell, but I was not happy with build .29 and all the problems I was having with my Bluetooth so I figured WTF!

    Like I said: I back right out of INSIDER, immediately after receiving the updates (I don’t have the brass that some of these brave sole has) – thanks to the newly added “Leave Insider” option in the lower right corner (under the ellipsis), of the App.

    Seriously though, if you don't like doing hard resets, you really shouldnt put your phone on the Insider Program IMO. It's beta software and its to be expected.

    Mark, you are absolutely CORRECT, and if I hadn’t run across that article I will assure you I would not have :)

    That didn't get you the firmware update which is what this thread is about.

    I upgraded the Windows Insider app to the newest version. Opted out of the program and attempted to check for updates (for the newest firmware). Still no firmware detected. Anyone else out there in the same boat? If so, do you know of any workarounds (other than hard reset... trying to avoid if possible)

    Currently running 950XL unlocked (Canada), OS build 10.0.10586.63
    Firmware 01078.00017.15454.29005

    From what I've read, I believe you also have to uninstall the app. Then you can reinstall it after you get the firmware update.

    if you want it desperately, download the windows phone recovery tool. You can flash the latest firmware onto your phone with that bypassing the slow rollout entirely.

    supposedly the insider preview will also get you the update. But it was bugging out for me and would not let me update at all. I had to wipe my phone and restore it with the recovery tool before I could use the insider preview to upgrade my device to the latest version.

    Agreed, if you want it, don't bother fighting with Insider install/uninstall/opt out.. etc.. Just flash the firmware and then reinstall Windows Insider app if you want to get the latest release on top of it.
    I flashed the files found on xda forums:

    If the firmware is affecting the baseband drivers, for example adding wifi calling, then the update depends on the carrier
