    Now as it is official that Nokia Lumia 925 is not eligible for windows 10 mobile update, MS should atleast release GDR2 update for us.

    Some of us got the update at the start of windows insider program. (Link). But majority of us are still stuck at version 8.10.14234.375.

    GDR2 updates includes (as per wikipedia)

    General user experience changes
    Additional language support (Bangla, Khmer, Kiswahili, Lao)
    All apps button at bottom of start screen
    Ability to rename the phone from the About section, without the need for connecting to the PC via USB
    Double-tap on navigation bar to turn off screen
    Settings categorized and searchable

    New technology support
    Bluetooth Message Access Profile
    Bluetooth Human Interface Device Profile 1.1
    Bluetooth HID over Generic Attribute Profile
    Absolute Volume Control (part of AVRCP)
    Video over LTE
    MKV video container support

    Security features
    Anti-theft reset protection
    Customizable app permissions for calendar, camera, contacts, messages and microphone

    I think you missed FAQ posted by MS.

    "Q: Im currently using a Windows 10 Insider build on my device, but it is not on the list of devices that will receive a formal Windows 10 update. What should I expect in the future?
    A: If you already have the Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build on your device, you may keep using your device in an unsupported state. We will not be offering build updates beyond the Current Branch build 10586. At some point in the future these devices will also stop receiving updates to the Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build.

    In order to recover the devices back to a supported build of Windows Phone 8.1, you may use the Windows Device Recovery Tool. There are more details on the use of the Windows Device Recovery Tool within this forum post."

    Yep, that's the least they could do. But I don't have high hopes :( We'll probably get WP8.8 with some sensational new colors... History repeating (kind of)

    It was done using windows insider app..but they fixed it a long time back.

    Only point is GDR2 is already developed by MS. They just need to release it.

    I presume you mean this method? http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...ces%2A%2A.html. Unfortunate if true.

    The method you linked to is for a phone with an SD card slot and since this is the 925 forum, I'm pretty sure not one of us can put an SD card in our phones.

    I was referring to this method (Worked for 925 also).

    I got updated to GDR2 using this method. But then I switched to Windows 10 and you know the rest of the story.
