    I was looking for a discussion about win10m for Lumia 1020 and I bumped into this. Im not very familiar with everything here since this phone is originally my mom's. I just wanted to ask, what's Redstone and insiders preview? I badly wanted to upgrade my phone to win10m since I guess the apps are more up-to-date. :(
    Redstone is the latest version of Windows 10, due for public release as the "Anniversary Update" on August 2.

    Insider Preview is the thing you can enroll in and get prerelease builds of Windows 10 before the public gets them. http://insider.windows.com/

    Lumia 1020 was deemed too old/slow for official Windows 10, but it can be enrolled in Insider. Unfortunately even with Insider it can't get Redstone, thus the purpose of this thread.

    Don't be worry about what Microsoft says. Redstone is very smooth on 1020.

    Yes. You simply have to be in 10568 then deploy vcreg and customfpd, change registry as write in the guide in the first post. then you install windows insider and check for update. I think you have to have an old account registered in insider, I had issue with a new one: didn't find update. Only change the account, find the update. Tell me if I'm wrong

    Or enable developer mode and install interop tool. (it's a registry editor, there's an article around here somewhere about it)

    hello, everyone

    latest build runnig pretty good. recently facing one problem with Camera!
    the new Skype Preview UWP app, is causing errors in camera, if installed on device. Even am not able to do video calling nor able to use Camera, separately.
    Lastly had to delete it. After unistalling Skype, Camera working all fine.

    I don't think the new panorama mode in MS Camera will ever work on the 1020. Surely this would not work without special optimization because of the huge amount of data from the 41 MP sensor

    oh, ok, mine works fine. But I prefer Lumia Camera anyway - way better quality and the ability to shoot 5 MP photos

    Thank you, I've managed to get the 14393. Now what about future updates? I've seen that the insider app has been moved into the settings menu but I cannot change anything in there. Also the new panorama camera app,how to get it? thanks again

    I've been reading reports that Windows Insider no longer updates x2x WP8.1 phones to W10M Threshold on Release Preview ring. Can anyone confirm? If so, it's worrying as it cuts out the easy way of rooting our phones or simply upgrading to W10M, throwing us back on the risky way using Windows Phone Internals. Especially with the 1020s which have the Samsung eMMC memory which potentially has the brick bug (according to WP Internals) it seems pretty risky to do it this way? Mine is currently on Threshold anyway, as I updated with Insider, but if I ever need to flash back to 8.1, it seems the easy upgrade path is being blocked. Can anyone confirm?

    I can confirm this, yes. I was stupid and rolled back to 8.1 a few days ago. Now I can't get to 10586 again and therefore not to Redstone.
    I will watch the WPInternals method closely and if there will be Redstone-Custom ROMs available for the 1020

    OK let's see if we can get noticed. Here is a petition someone started to get x20 phones recognized for Windows 10M:

    I unlocked my bootloader with WPInternals and enabled mass storage mode, changed the phone ID in the registry and succeeded in installing Redstone again. Yay!

    Straight copy from a post of the member "Swordfishx86" of the xda-forums:
    "I think what tofuschnitte suggest ist to install 8.1 through WDRT, use wpinternals to unlock the bootloader, enable mass storage mode, use wpinternals to boot the phone in mass storage mode and use regedit on your computer to edit the registry.

    You can open regedit, select HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and use [File]->[Load Hive...] to load [Phone]:\windows\system32\config\system. Next you'll be asked for a name for the Hive. Name it something obvious like "PHONE_SYSTEM". Next Navigate to HKLM\PHONE_SYSTEM\Platform\DeviceTargetingInfo and change

    // edit: Use values at your own discretion. The values suggested here will give you a phablet interface.

    PhoneManufacturer to "Microsoft MDG"
    PhoneModelName to "Lumia 1520"
    PhoneManufacturerModelName to "RM-938_1000"

    Unload the Hive by selecting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\PHONE_SYSTEM in the tree view and use [File]->[Unload Hive...]. Press and hold [Powerbutton] and [Volume down] to reboot your phone to normal mode.
    Join the Fast Ring using Windows Insider tool and check for updates. "

    That worked for me. You have to have the correct
    • Firmware
    • Emergency Flash Loader
    • and Engineering SBL3 files

    for your 1020. Please notice that there's a high risk of damaging your phone if something goes wrong.

    btw: if you are in mass storage mode, you can easily copy a modified hosts file to your phone and therefore eliminate ads in Edge

    I sold off my 1020 but plan on getting an old one and updating using the method described here. If there is a video tutorial, that would be awesome!

    There's a guy on the xda forums who managed to put Android on a 950 XL. That only worked because the Nexus 6P and the 950 XL have the exact same hardware

    I am so skeptical of this I'll have to go check that out.

    EDIT: I can't find it, can you help me find the source?
