    Lastly: what problems did you have with the sms? As of now it seems that I cannot receive sms, but I can send them when my device reboots. This happened after a clean install of w10m and redstone doesn't seem to have fixed that. Funny thing is that when I change the sim card all the sms are there, even the one on the other sim....did you solve your sms problem after the hard reset? If so I think I'll do mine quite soon....
    There is definitely something wrong with SMS. 14393.5 and earlier threshold/RT builds have a problem with sending and receiving. Also, delivery confirmation does not work. As you mentioned, rebooting the phone sends the message. As a matter of fact, every time the phone is rebooted, it sends the same messages!

    Also, there's a BT bug. When attempting to turn off BT in the notification area, the screen goes dim, then completely black.

    Does the hard reset solve this?

    Hi! I don't have the APN problem, but as someone already mentioned it is a thing that happens apparently...I don't know if I can post link in this forum, but if you look online for drwindows there is a german forum where a user has your problem, but I don't think he fixed it though. Maybe before changing the CSC you could try with another hard reset?

    As for your device info, there are app easily deployable that give you access to the registry in w10m (instead of the tedious workaround you needed to do in wp8.1) and I suggest you to do that because I don't think you will receive updates unless your phone pretends to be a lumia (I might be wrong, when I was on the official w10m branch I had updates anyway, but we are still on insider right now until the 2nd and I don't know how they will handle it after that date).

    Lastly: what problems did you have with the sms? As of now it seems that I cannot receive sms, but I can send them when my device reboots. This happened after a clean install of w10m and redstone doesn't seem to have fixed that. Funny thing is that when I change the sim card all the sms are there, even the one on the other sim....did you solve your sms problem after the hard reset? If so I think I'll do mine quite soon....
    I've seen that forum-post, yes. For now, I'm waiting a bit longer (need my phone to work). There seems to be a small update, 14393.5, and as it was released to the Release Preview ring this might become the next major public release... I haven't been able to download it even though I changed the registry to "Nokia" but I guess I'll try this one before doing a hard reset.

    The thing with the SMS was similiar to yours, the messages were only send after restart (and then the same messages were send again after the next restart and so on). I didn't try to change to manually set time and date (it seems to have helped some people and I remember that the sms were missing a date and time in the notifications app) because I didn't know of that solution at the time. Hard reset solved the problem for me, anyhow.

    Good to know about the hard reset, thanks!! I will surely do one after the official release :) Anyway, it's not like w10m, to get back into the insider ring you need to change more values. Here are the ones that worked for me

    HKLM\SYSTEM\Platform\DeviceTargetingInfo
    PhoneManufacturer = MicrosoftMDG
    PhoneModelName = Lumia 950 XL
    PhoneHardwareVariant = RM-1085
    PhoneManufacturerModelName to RM-1085

    Also, take not of your original ones if you ever need them (I paste mine here, just for reference)

    * PhoneManufacturer SAMSUNG
    * PhoneManufacturerModelName GT-I8750
    * PhoneModelName GT-I8750
    * PhoneHardwareVariant GT-I8750

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks! I changed all those values for the upgrade from 8.1 to 10 and thought they weren't needed once you've done that... seems to be just the other way around ;-) Might do some updating tomorrow and report how it develops with the APN problem...

    Hi there,
    What's the option that you need to select in Windows Insider app to enroll in RS1 builds? Sadly, I couldn't manage to find this out in this thread.
    I mean, registry changes aside, which one of the three available options in the Windows Insider you need to select to get Redstone 14XXX builds through Windows Update?
    Will Insider Fast do the trick?

    Me too. I've had issues with not being able to receive text messages and having issues sending them (the phone had always been sending the last SMS after a restart). That was in early builds like 10.0.10586.107 or so. Resetting the phone from Settings|System|About has helped to solve the problem.

    Cheers, I will reset my phone the day after tomorrow, when redstone will be out officially. To get redstone builds you can be in either insider fast or insider slow (go to fast to get the latest 14393.5, which works great). After that I suggest you to switch to release preview in order not to get the redstone 2 builds which will most likely start to come next week or in the future ones.

    I haven't tried yet, I guess it's present though. Anyway you can just use the slider to change it to a darker setting instead the stepped controls in the quick action panel. To access the slider you just tap and hold on the brightness tile and it will redirect you automatically to the settings page, so for me there is really no difference..

    You can try:

    HKLM\SYSTEM\Platform\DeviceTargetingInfo
    PhoneManufacturer = NOKIA
    PhoneModelName = Lumia 640 XL
    PhoneManufacturerModelName = Lumia 640 XL

    I chose the Preview Release option.

    Anyone know how to recover the lock screen registry tweaks used in WP8.1? I had them working on 10 but had to do a hard reset and lost them... damn.

    You mean you need an app to hack the registry? Try deploying Interop Tools, you shouldn't even need to have interop unlocked your phone. You can find it on xda. From there you can modify the registry and set the lock screen to never again:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEControlPanelLock] “DisableNever”=dword:0

    (Is this the feature you were looking for?)

    Otherwise I believe that CustomPFD can now be deployed using a computer (still not needing interop unlock). Interop Tools can be installed directly form the phone (email it to yourself or put it on onedrive, latest version of IT is 1.7 beta, latest CPFD is 6 I think).

    Ciao Ferdinando, CustomPFD is only good if you can install Preview for Developers which is now no longer available in the store. I have Interop Tools installed but [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEControlPanelLock] hive key isn't listed in my registry. Do you have to create it?

    BTW, the SMS problem can be fixed by hard resetting the phone. I did step change the brightness in quick action panel and ended up with a black screen. The only way to recover is a hard reset! Anyway, it all worked out for the better since the hard reset fixed the SMS problems...

    The latest version of CostumPFD does not require to be nested in Preview for Developers anymore! :) I found that key on a website, but I cannot find it on my device either. I never tried to change the lockscreen, so I wouldn't know where it would be. Have you tried looking on xda for the complete list of customizations you can do with access to registry?

    sure, but do you have custompfd already installed? If so it works just like the previous version, slide until you find the registry tree (should be one page right after you open the app) and navigate to HKLM\SYSTEM\Platform\DeviceTargetingInfo (ignore the fact that it says "you cannot write here", once you are inside the section we are interested you will be able to write there).

    Once there, select the following keys one by one and change the values, for example in the first one change it from SAMSUNG to MicrosoftMDG. Upper and lower cases are important, so pay attention. Also, I suggest you to take note of the original ones before you change them.

    PhoneManufacturer = MicrosoftMDG
    PhoneModelName = Lumia 950 XL
    PhoneHardwareVariant = RM-1085
    PhoneManufacturerModelName to RM-1085

    If you don't have custompfd installed then you need to deploy from a windows computer using the official deployment .exe program. You can find it on xda or many other forums (again, I don't know if we are allowed to post links in this forum, if you don't find it fire me a pm and I'll send you a link).

    On a side note: the battery life is even better than expected. The most I've had so far was 25hrs with whatsapp, whatsapp calls, skype always open (and a small call), instagram, browsing and emails. I'm really impressed. I should say that the battery is 3 months old though, but it is more than I had on w10m (before the .494 which had excellent battery life as well)

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEControlPanelLock] is erroneous. First of all, it's missing backslashes. The only key I could find that comes close is [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ControlPanel\]. There's a subkey "Sip" but that's it.

    For some reason, am not able to deploy CustomPFD_0600.xap on my phone... get error: 0x81030120. Any ideas?

    It has been for 5 days now since I updated from build 10586.494 to RS build 14393.5. Using the root tool and the following settings:
    HKLM\SYSTEM\Platform\DeviceTargetingInfo
    PhoneManufacturer = NOKIA
    PhoneModelName = Lumia 640 LTE
    PhoneHardwareVariant = RM-1072
    Select WindowsInsider fast ring and after +-1.5 hours youll be ready. After updating I did a soft reset and until now no hard reset. I must say that this is a very good, stable and smooth build and I like it much more than the latest TH build. Battery life is very good: with normal usage I can reach 1.5 days. I had no problems with the APN settings. Sending and receiving SMS messages went well and the delivered status is shown below right (see figure below: bezorgd=delivered). I did not test the brightness settings. The only thing I noticed so far is that taken photos are not synced directly to the one drive cloud. You have to open the one drive app on your device and select refresh 1 or 2 times. Up until now Im very satisfied with this build. In order to see what will happen with new builds I switched back to the Release Preview ring for now.

    Have you by any chance tried using Facebook Messenger? It drains battery veeery fast and phone gets enormously hot :-/

    It does drain the battery compared to the other apps, but not that much to me. Also the phone gets warm, but not hot (yesterday I was using it while charging and it was ok). I just hope they will optimize it more like they did with instagram which is awesome now: fast, responsive, a little bit of battery drainer but is not meant to be used 24h..

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEControlPanelLock] is erroneous. First of all, it's missing backslashes. The only key I could find that comes close is [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ControlPanel\]. There's a subkey "Sip" but that's it.

    I know that the backslashes are missing...again, I just found it on a website, and I never had to modify mine for the background settings, I have no idea where it is. Don't know why CustomPFD is not working, maybe you already have installed two apps that need a signature (ergo, you don't have interop unlock, you need to uninstall one of those and try again). Otherwise use Interop Tools which you can install from your phone directly (just email it to yourself or via onedrive, latest versione is beta 1.7)
