    Wow! Definitely will not wait for OTA, will check WDRT later when I have a USB-C cable around. Long weekend ahead, it seems, as I would have to go back to Fast Ring, factory rest and then restore backup again.

    Hell yeahhhh!

    Can't hard reset though, it would take me literally a day to configure everything right back to the way it is now. Will wait for OTA. Can anyone else confirm that this is working? Thanks!

    What region are you in? Can anyone with a Lumia 950 check if it's available? (at working and using Linux over here, so no WDRT)

    Updating trough the recovery tool will wipe the whole phone right? That would suck as I cannot backup saves for Hitman Go :(

    Okay, so we've got Russia and India, and I think one person said they saw it in the US. Hopefully this is a gradual rollout!

    Users with other Lumias from the x50 family, can anyone confirm that this is rolling out to the rest of those devices as well? I have a Lumia 950

    Hmm, downloaded and updated, catapulted me back to .107 though, and lost most of my settings, ugh.
    Is there any way to "trigger" a Restore, after getting back to .456, so my settings will work correctly, at Restore-time?

    Right now I'm going to .420, apparently you have to do a two-step, to get to .456, handy stuff, not so much...

    I knew I should've waited for OTA, oops, darn it, but I hate not having double-tap, coming from an HTC M8...

    WDRT gives me a FW version that's wayyy older than the one on my device. Weird stuff.

    Just installed new FW on my Lumia 950XL DS (CV Russia) via WDRT. New version is 01078.00053.16236.35009.

    UPD: Lumia motion data is missing
    UPD: uploaded screenshots, in Russian)) I have already upgraded to latest Insider Preview since the creation of thread
    Attachment 128037Attachment 128038Attachment 128039
    Attachment 128040Attachment 128041
    UPD: Looks like motion data and some other Lumia extras are missing because of a bug in hard reset process. Will try going through WDRT from scratch again later.
    For Rasputin's sake, hide your IMEI number, man!

    Is pictures/movies in the microSD at danger with flashing via WDRT? I'm not currently installing Apps in there, that'd not be a problem.

    I'd bet this OTA will come togheter with the AU, but a good month of waiting is something hard to swallow.. On the other hand the .107 isn't very wise to restart again and would potentially f.ck-up some settings, as I've heard above.

    Why MS isn't putting a more recent build in WDRT is something nobody knows..
    2nd bet is that they'll put .456 (or any latest TH2 of that time) in WDRT as soon as AU kicks in via OTA (as an emergency parachute for us).

    You must probably have that backed up on your onedrive already, so go nuts with nuking your phone. :)

    SD card will be untouched, no worries.

    I have some movies not coming from the camera. And OneDrive backups are hardly the same quality of photos.

    That's the answer I was waiting. Thanks. Still at the window wondering if the hassle of downgrading to .107 for some time would be worth the double touch.

    You could possibly be reading the numbers wrong, sometimes the ending digits are similar or one is slightly higher or lower than the other, but check the beginning and middle digits, post screenshots so I can confirm this

    Hey guys, I was gonna check WDRT, but I got distracted by the latest insider build in the fast ring. I will check soon, but I'm sure I'll see it like other's have. My 950xl is unlocked and I live in the US, so idk what the requirements are to detect the new firmware update via WDRT

    You're correct. I've found on this link that .13169 means .318, actually.
    There was .107 just 10 days ago, though. They've probably updated the build together with the new firmware availability.

    "Trigger a restore" is pretty simple, once you are on the software version you want, go to settings about and reset the phone. Then restore your backup.

    But if you are on redstone builds (incl 14379), you might face some missing Lumia Extras after resetting the phone
