    OK I just upgraded OS to 420. Unfortunately, I already upgraded, and installed build in and my apps, so again I don't have a totally clean install but never mind for now. I used mob only to install apps and use it some nav app (maps). With map app I heaved a problem. There was no sound over a Bluetooth, after few min sounds was on but with a big delay. That was before v420. I will delete connection with my hands free, and pair devices again on a new OS build.
    Will post my experience tomorrow.

    I got this update with the help of Microsoft device care in India as I have Lumia 950 due to some problem in battery backup. all features are working, moreover i have Lumia motion Data is available too. But I have some problem as all apps/games downloading are ok, but its data usage in settings showing in system as compare to store as it shows only 30MB but when I click Wi-Fi usage its system shown 349MB. See more details in images.
    Any other user have same bug, what solution will be there?

    its a no brainer. im kinda stupid and daring also. just flashed the firmware. thanks for the nudge.
    Those of you not seeing it via WDRT should be "cautious" with these packages.
    While these are firmware revs, if you're like me (US RM-1085, unbranded, unlocked 950XL), you'll notice there's not a package published yet, for 16236.
    If you flash a Euro or other version, there may be issues. You'll likely be able to still use your phone, but some things may be "off". On the other hand, it could be fine, but we don't have a great way to verify this, at least not that I'm aware of.
    Just an FYI, in case some of you were going to jump all over this, and have a US/International dual-SIM phone...

    actually, you can get your product code on the sticker if you take off the back cover. if the firmware corresponding to your product code is not available, you can always check the compatible carrier 000-XX where xx is the country variant, but its a bit hard with the american carriers because they impose so many restrictions. when in doubt. just stop and wait for ota.

    Yep, exactly. It's definitely possible to find your product-code, but if you have a US phone, double-SIM, then there doesn't appear to be an updated firmware published yet. This was my concern, that people would grab a random RM-1085 firmware revision, and have a mis-matched update.
    Yeah, our carrier thing is a mess, but fortunately (or not, depending on your outlook), no US carrier is selling the 950XL, only the 950. So, when they publish the dual-SIM 950XL firmware for the US variant, it should be carrier-agnostic.
    It's interesting that they haven't published, given this fact, but maybe there's something slightly "odd" about our phone variant, it's taking more test/debug cycles, etc. Or maybe they saw some feedback/issues, and decided not to publish, until the fix something, it's tough to know...
    Yep, EXCELLENT way to put it, "when in doubt, stop and wait for OTA!" ;-]

    Why all the hype for this over rated feature? My 535 could do it. Aren't there more important things to be working on. Wow a phone with THIS hardware can turn on by tapping the screen HAHAHAHA
    It could have sold more phones, the lack of the feature is the reason I sent the XL back. 1020w/8.1

    Yeah, no kidding, I saw this in email, and thought "cool, getting the FW update, and no Restore pain-points too", and then looked at the forum, and realized, it's not for the US, yet. I really wonder why the US-International dual-SIM is taking so long to publish...

    My speculation is that part of testing before release in a specific region includes the carriers which have a particular phone with their brand. In the US, that's AT&T with the 950 and we all know it takes them a long time. MS is likely waiting on test results from AT&T before launching firmware in the US.

    In other regions, carriers don't drag their feet so much, or there actually aren't any carrier-branded devices, so the release isn't delayed as much.

    Yeah, my thoughts as well, although they could release 950XL SKU, in the meantime...
    Granted, it's probably the same firmware (mostly, except the dual-SIM change), but it's targeted to specific models anyway, it's not hard to exclude the 950, obviously.
    Maybe there's concern over speculation, but that's what's happening anyway, but localized to the fanatics ;-]

    I can safely report that my CV DK (bought in Italy but presumably for another EU market, Denmark?) received the firmware.

    This seems what it addresses:
    Key improvements in this release include:
    Wi-Fi connectivity improvements, including fixes for Wi-Fi connection dropping randomly and Wi-Fi scan occasionally not returning any results.
    Support for double tap to wake enabled.
    Bluetooth connectivity improvements.
    Stability and reliability improvements.
    Camera improvements, including improved image and video quality, improved Auto-focus and fix for a problem that was causing slow motion capture to skip frames for some users.
    Cellular connectivity improvements, including fix for a problem that caused occasional network loss for some users.
    Audio quality improvements, including fix for a problem that caused voice call audio to get scrambled for some users.
    It added the DTtW in Extras\Touch.
    For what it counts (I don't have apps tracking that) Motion Data is present. As is the DTtSleep. It asked a restart after a while because some SIM settings got changed.

    So far so good.

    Actually, yeah, no updates on the firmware, but WDRT has a "required" update.
    I was looking at the Lumia firmware page, and noticed that the dual-SIM now has a firmware (still not in a big hurry to flash, I'm thinking OTA in the US is close), so I fired up WDRT, on a whim. Sure enough, mandatory WDRT update, no phone viewing, don't pass GO, just update WDRT first.

    Of course, after the update nothing's changed in terms of availability, but it would appear things are getting ready, to handle new revisions...

    Yes, i know i had the exact same thing. I'm referring to the topic of the thread..DTTW..that update didn't do anything for me...reading the notes it looks like it was for the Win Blu HD and Yezz Billy and some other weird phones like that.

    All they'll be confirming at this point is that they bought an imported phone from another region and they don't have the official 000-US variant.

    I don't know why Microsoft treats it's US CV phones differently. These folks bought the unlocked variant to receive firmware and OS (this is irrelevant for W10M devices) updates without delays and carrier approvals but looks like they're being treated no different. The RM-985 US country variant never received the updated GDR2 firmware the AT&T variant received. At this time I believe it's better to flash to another CV ROM (a compatible version) if one is looking for faster updates.

    Maybe. What happens if the IMEIs that the carriers in the US are sync-ing with for a 950XL is the NA variant? It seems like a potential issue, plus you have to manually flash the device, and reset everything, again, not exactly a small project.
    I don't really understand how the 950XL is being held due to carriers, when no carrier ever sold it here? It does look that way, but it's a little puzzling.

    Flashing a different firmware does not change the IMEI. And yes, flashing the newer Lumia's is actually trickier than the older Nokias and should be only done at one's own discretion.

    Yeah, good point, wasn't thinking there. Definitely tweaks the model and other though, which may affect what the carrier features are.
    And, as you mention, self-flashing can lead to a brick. It's annoying, and if it really takes a looong time, I may go this route, but for now I'm holding out for the NA dual-SIM firmware.
    I still don't get why they would be holding it, on the carrier-less 950XL, for the US anyway.
