    Both of you have nuts of steel. I am happy you asserted dominance.
    hahaha, its actually pretty easy to do following the great instructions given. I think all the 950's are all the same phones, the unlocked ones anyways so I don't think you have to worry to much about different firmware as there is nothing carrier specific to them, radio's are probably all the same.

    Thanks for the guide. Went from 059x505 to 059x5P5.

    My 950XL finally upgraded from Firmware 01078.00027.15506.02005 to 01078.00038.16025.39005. I hope this fixes some of the ridiculous Bluetooth problems I have with my 950XL + Band (Gen1) + Car.

    This firmware update via this path doesnt wipe your device does it?
    I did the firmware update by changing the Windows Insider app to the "Production" lane. It did not require a reboot and the software went directly into the Windows Update screen. The firmware updated, the phone OS installed (moving gears) and finally opened back into the Windows Home page. The firmware update that installed on my Lumia 950XL, dual sim in the USA on AT&T is 01078.00027.15506.02005.

    Be sure to go back into the Windows Insider app and reset the setting back to the Fast Lane for updates from MS. The app was updated as well.

    So, I have 01078.00027.15506.02014.

    Seems a little different than what is referenced by anyone above. I suppose I'm one version old?

    Just wanted to point out that after the reflash I could not find my ringtone (The Shakes). I did find a copy in the net.

    Looks like some ringtones are region specific.

    This is not the latest firmware and was the latest OS update for insiders on the Fast ring.

    Anyone else having problems installing this? I download the firmware update (950XL, Thailand, single SIM), restart when asked, the cogs appear and the update is installed. Device restarts, lock screen appears, I unlock the device and I just get 'Loading....' and no actual Start Screen,

    Any thoughts?

    Should be fine to do this, it's similar to what we did in the past using Nokia tools to flash phones.

    Doubtful, since you'd reverse it and wipe the device back to its original state before sending in for repair.

    Great and easy procedure although I'm a bit late on the uptake...

    Something to mention: Flashing firmware isn't to be taken lightly and shouldn't even be done unless you have a problem or a need and the new ROM addresses the issue, very similar in fact to flashing BIOS on your motherboard.

    at least some people got it right lol I try by the instructions and I put a US code for my Lumia 950 XL Dual Sim black and made sure I had the right path for the fcc or ffc which ever how you spell it and changed the product code that I wanted and all I got was Operation Failed :( I try 3 times same results.... :(

    ok flashing went great on my Canadian 950XL, no issues at all. Now running latest firmware and latest insider build. Thanks for the good info PepperdotNet.
    :) Well good to know you got it done. My Lumia 950 XL that I got from B&H still wont let me change the product number :( I wonder if the company that unlock it or something put some kind of block of changing the product number -.-

    At least my phone has the newest firmware of.

    True but this form of flashing may not even have worked on every lumia 950 xl dual sim or single. I try countless times and my phone just boot normally with errors at least my phone not brick. im just stuck with spain/mexico and not US lol.

    Using your guide, I was able to change the product code and region code to 000-88, thank you. It looks like with this changes wifi at last works stable on channels 149+ (the phone has detected them previously, but couldn't use properly - I had no internet after connecting to them; I think this limitation was due to EU version of the phone). However, it didn't enable such an options as reset protection or manual wifi address setting, which is a bit strange. Are these features available on your phone?
    Thanks anyway, as the 5G wifi problem kinda annoyed me.
    Edit: Nope, this didn't help - still no internet on AC connection on channels 149+

    I got a RM-1085 5F0 (HK). Was gonna switch to the global swap equivalent of the white one. Or maybe one with GB (Great Brit)

    I have no problem flashing it. I just don't know which to use. Using it with Tmobile in the US.

    Since we're in a delay mode in some regions again, this might be relevant for some who are impatient.

    I updated the first post to mention LumiaFirmware.com which might be a little easier since it shows all the devices and all available firmware revisions.

    If you're using in US, it might be best to use 059X7F5 which is the recently added NAM 4R CV for US and Canada. (I wonder if that means Microsoft will finally be selling a single-sim 950XL in the US?)

    You don't want to use global swap for anything. Those never get updated.

    Something lost in translation. Are you saying you did it, or asking if it will work?

    Since you live in Brazil, a Latin America firmware might be what you want.

    Dumbass question.....I have checked my packaging for my 950xl, I have checked more info etc and I still can't find the 059xxxx variant code. I can find 000GB and CV, but nothing? Am I being a complete *****? Unlocked Single Sim in UK on RS preview.

    The code is printed on the tiny sticker inside the battery cover. The sticker also has the IMEI numbers and some barcodes.

    At least it's easier to find than on the 1020. That one, you have to take the SIM out, then pull out a tiny metal tray which has the sticker adhered to it.
