    I usually tell people to use the windows device recovery tool, go back to 8.1 then:
    download all language packs you need and keyboards
    install Lumia camera, glance, windows insider...(and ringtone maker (optional if you want ringtones)) don't install anything else
    update all apps
    just in case place the ringtones you made onto your pc in a safe place (optional..if you have ringtones)
    backup that 8.1 settings keyboards, languages apps etc.
    update to latest build
    see if everything works first...give it a few hours...
    any glitches hard reset and restore settings etc from that 8.1 backup
    everything should work!
    update to latest build

    By the way, if it hasn't been mentioned yet, the new Windows Camera now allows the user to change the zoom level, exposure value and white balance while recording a video.

    For those having issues with updating from the store, and getting native apps resolved. I had this problem with some earlier builds back in May-June.

    Apparently my problem was that my phone has gone out of sync. Double check your region settings, and double check your time and date on the phone. After you set it to the correct region and time, reboot the phone, then it should hopefully sync up with the store correctly,and apply the app updates correctly. of course YMMV :-)

    Went to the Phone Store, clicked to look at my download apps, the Lumia Camera App returns "Error code 0x803F8006" so i looked at a workaround.

    Found this on pastebin, i'll give it a shot tonight: THey wont let me paste links here yet, sorry.

    pastebin DOT com/raw DOT php?i=umZ64zCq
    One fix for 0x803F8006 errors in Windows 10 Mobile Store update on Lumia devices

    1) This involves using Fiddler and FiddlerScript so download both from getfiddler DOT com and telerik fiddler script editor
    2) Install and open Fiddler then install the FiddlerScript Editor,
    3) find the rest of the article... sorry i cannot post more of the steps, but basically its' straight forward.

    Uses your computer as a mediator.

    Lumia Camera is now WINDOWS CAMERA in W10M. Search that...

    ..
    You sure? Can you take 41 MP pictures with it?
    I did a hard rest and can't reinstall Lumia camera, the stock camera app from win 10 is pure **** when you use it with the 1020.

    EDIT: I'm trying a hard reset with restore to see if i can get Lumia Camera back. I hope so. If not i'm reverting back to 8.1 and back to 10. Wich is a long process, but not having good camera app on 1020 is just plain stupid.

    Been using 10586.11 on my unlocked AT&T 1020 for the past 4 days as my daily phone and I was really impressed (this is my first look at w10 mobile). All seems to work well, except the battery life. I even got around the dreaded mobile hotspot issue with AT&T 1020's on non-AT&T carriers. I just replaced the battery, so I am not certain w10 is the issue.

    Do others have battery drain issues (esp when browsing a lot over data)? As drain the battery to around 40% (about 1.5 hrs of web browsing), the drain increases exponentially: It drains from 40 to less than 10 in less than a half hour.

    The 1020 never took 41MP photos, it took 2 photos (a 5MP and a 36/34MP) depending on your settings.
    The new Windows Camera app takes 34MP photos, and no 5MP photos. I've been using it for bout a week now ever since they added the "PRO" features, and it's been pretty good. I dont miss the Lumia Camera App anymore. My pictures have the dimensions of 7712x4352.

    I've been getting the battery drain recently, not sure what the cause is. I'm also double checking to see how often my email is pulling, and what apps can work in the background.
    When the 1020 was originally released, the reviews all said horrible battery life, but then "SUDDENLY" the batter life was better. Microsoft built in a 2-week reset where, if you havent opened the app in 2 weeks, it prevented the app from working in the background (draining battery).
    Before, you could manually tweak these settings, I'll try to find them out now.

    So battery life has been getting worse now for me too. Usage shows a lot of system stuff draining battery. So not sure what's up. Though is the Model in device information supposed to be saying Nokia 909?

    My battery drains from 100% to critical in about 2-3 hours. The Battery Saver section says it's messaging that's the problem, even if I sign out of Skype. It also shows it to be while it is 'in use', not background, which is weird because it'll happen when I have the phone in my pocket with the screen off.

    Strangely, my 920 doesn't have this issue at all.

    I've been using it for a bit. It's smooth, and I've had to only do a hard reset once. Though, I dont know what they did, but it's really killing my battery. I'm trying out a few things to see if I can reduce the battery drain, but no luck so far. I've kept it in the camera case for the time being to give me enough juice to last more than 24 hours, but without the case, a full charge gives me only 18 hours of standby.

    I'm on the fast track, so hopefully i get a better build soon. I'll keep this thread updated with my findings.

    Yeah, my battery continues to just get absolutely destroyed. I was hoping the device would settle in after a while, but nothing seems to be changing on that front.

    i'm running 10586.29 and my battery is on par with WP8.1.
    It's definitely OK to be used as a daily driver but there are some minor annoyances:
    • Opening apps is not as fast as on WP 8.1
    • Edge does not always register when I tap on a link (and so it refuses to open the link)
    • Settings app STILL crashes when I want to change my quick actions for the notification center (the bug is there since the last three builds or so)

    Faster than usual battery drain - though I've removed UC browser to see if it helps
    Usual bugs other phones have but really minor

    I am going to continue to hold off. I want 10 but not at the expense of battery life and smoothness.

    My rule is: If it's not broke, don't fix it. Based upon the comments here, I am sticking to W8.1. I have no issues with 8.1

    Is the hotspot issue fixed? Specifically, it's when the hotspot will cut out when the lockscreen appears.

    As I remember last time I tried W10 Preview on my 1020 that was the one big issue I kept running into.

    I've been using the hotspot on my 1020 to share traffic with my Samsung tablet, with the lock screen up. :-)
