    Did you try the Volume -, plus power, plus camera button, then plug in usb trick? Worked for me when nothing else did.

    I've installed it on my 1020 twice. Still up and running. Bricking your device is rare. Having it run poorly, Apps crash, lag, etc, is all common, however.

    What is the likelihood of existing apps refusing to work at all?

    Trying to get the most current update to Windows Phone software from ATT and want to know if this is update 2? I've read where the 1020 is getting update 2 before W10 is downloaded.

    Nope that's Update 1, I don't think the 1020 will officially get Update 2 anyway.

    People are getting update 2 from the Insider Program. After install it will then prompt you to download Windows 10. So if you want Update 2 and not W10, you have to uninstall Windows Insider App before you restart the device so it can install Update 2. Otherwise, it will notify you that you have an update pending nearly every time you wake the phone. Can't remove it without a hard reset.

    But, theres no guarantee you'll even get Update 2, first. I tried twice. First time I didn't and it went right to W10. Second time, I got Update 2. Makes me wonder if having Denim firmware was the difference...

    I think recent builds have skipped over Update 2 altogether actually.

    I can confirm you go straight to W10, no more update 2. I tried 10 twice but it was too buggy for me although I didn't have a chance to try the latest build. I think our 1020s with their week CPUs are not great and won't be without some fine tuning from MSFT..

    I don't use it enough to tell if it's more stable or not, but I haven't noticed any performance improvement on this build. It's still slow and massively unoptimized for this hardware.

    As with Cyan and Denim, I'll wait patiently until I'm prompted for an update. I appreciate a stable, highly-reliable 1020 that excels as it has since new. Best to the pioneers.

    I had W10 mobile on my 1020 and everything was smooth except a bummer 'Auto upload for photos won't work eventhough it is turned on'

    I have reverted back to wp8.1 as of now

    Very easy problem to avoid. If you don't want your phone to be bricked or unstable, don't install alpha versions of the new OS.

    I am using Lumia 920 with the Windows 10 Mobile Build 10166 and it works really excellent. Yes, there are loading screens appearing regularly when switching between apps. I have not made any hard reset and everything works as it should. The Lumia 1020 has practically the same hardware, so the experience should be similar, except for the 41 megapixel Lumia Camera feature not being available (!).

    Here are the showstoppers that make people not wanting to install Build 10166 on Lumia 1020:
    • Lumia Camera not available in the Windows 10 Mobile Store
    • Loading screens are likely to show up when switching between apps
    • Hard resets are likely to cause Action Center icons to blink
    • Hard resets will cause issues with Glance screen setup and the Extras+Info application
    • Performance optimisations are missing (expected since this is beta software)

    I've installed the latest build 2 times. Though I liked the way OS is shaping up and want to be a part of it, it's unstable for daily usage. Battery life just sucks with 10's current build. Wait till we get a stable build. The current version is more of alpha build than beta. WP makes one become patient. ;)

    I was running W10 for a couple of weeks. Did the upgrade to build 166 with a clean install (no restore from backup) and started fresh. I was fine with leaving it (it is not my daily driver), until I realized the Lumia Camera apps are gone and so you cannot take pics in hi-MP or DNG format.

    I rolled it back to W8.1 Update last night, getting all my Lumia photography apps back. It will stay there until all the same capable apps are available in the W10 store for L1020. (right now, it says Lumia Camera Classic not available for your device).
