    Regarding camera autofocus bug I use 1Shot camera http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=rGsxEbzJ to take pictures. Takes pretty long to launch but takes nice pictures and uses the old api. Works without problems for me except for the long launch.

    I have intentionally changed settings back from

    I've checked for updates but nothing showed up in Windows Store .

    Then I used SysAppPusher to follow directly to the page of Samsung extra settings app, and opening the page showed there are no updates. The version that I already have installed on the phone is the last one.

    Tried to trigger Automatic Brightness setting from ON to OFF and back with restart of the phone but that didn't help.

    By the way, I only noticed problems with the screen today when I have found myself not seeing a thing on the screen while I've been driving.

    Looks like the problem appeared only after some time. I've been using RS1 for a couple of weeks.

    Also, I've noticed that phone started to heat again after I changed registry settings to Samsung.
    You'll find that there's no Insider support either. BTW, what megadragon998 experienced is most likely an old 8.1 update that he just received. Also, I want to discuss rbraga79's experience with RS2 .1000 build. He claims that auto-brightness works now but the proximity sensor stays lit. Wouldn't the proximity sensor be responsible for controlling screen brightness when set to auto?

    Indeed, on page 7 of the user manual it is stated like if both the two eyes are light and proximity sensor as if they were the same device.

    What I think it is in fact, proximity sensor sits between the light sensor and the camera.

    Im not the only one experiencing the update, a guy in the firmware topic has also received an update too. Im 100% certain its not an old update since ive been manually checking for updates on both 8.1 th2 and rs1. Im using UK region with GT I8750 setting. Im on build 14393.103 and i havent really tried playing with the settings since i didnt have time, will get back to you.

    I got the update as well. Haptic feedback isn't working and brightness toggle issue is still there. No idea about autobrightness.

    Due to a hardware issue, my ATIV S mic stopped working and no one can hear me while calling. Microsoft dropped the Lumia 950 price at 299€, so I moved on. Anyway, I'll still have my Samsung ATIV S as a testing device.

    Yes, the two eyes are related and probably function together. The camera's light sensor is built into the camera. If you go into a darkened area and cover both eyes, the camera will still adjust for proper lighting.

    Hmm, auto-brightness is enabled on my phone although it doesn't work, but the sensor is not lit.

    Auto-brightness works on your .1000 phone... is this correct?
    Yes, auto-brightness works on my .1000 phone SPV version.

    Got my ATIV S updated to 14915.1000 for about a week and this build is not good for my phone....

    The auto brightness keep light the sensor and switch to maunal seems couldn't really control the brightness (it changes when you slide the bar but after you jump to main screen it comes back to the same brightness). The speed and stability seems drop significantly, lags are coming back and app crashed out to main screen more oftenly. My badoo app crahes while trying to access my photo album....

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The worse hit was at the store, now I lost the "download" button in every app page so I can't really download any new apps....I think it's time for a hard reset (I just afraid that I'll lose the free proshot app) and keep a eye on 3rd party ROM.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Anyway, if 14915.1000 if not arrived in your phone, avoid it.


    ***UPDATE***
    Today I open the store app again and the download button is back! I'm so happy that I don't have to go back to ground zero and start all over. The Microsoft Blink is a good camera app as well...too bad why MS limit their camera button to only launch their stupid default camera app? That item had sat there for years and everytime I saw it, it just seems mocking at me hard.....

    Hmm, is it possible to revert to a previous build by hard resetting the ativ s? If so, how is it done? Also, it's possible to update the OS with the Spavlin ROM installed?

    1) I don't think hard reset will bring you back to previous version of OS, you have to go waaaay back to download mode and flash offical WP8 rom then get here....too much work to do

    2) Yes I'm also wondering how those 3rd party ROM works and how deep they can dig into the OS and make it fit our hardware better :)

    Thanks for the info Tien, I'll keep my phone on release preview and hope for the best. Another thing I've discovered with .103 build is that Cortana is deaf.

    UPDATE! 14393.105 as been released. I would appear Cortana's hearing has been restored.

    UPDATE2! Cortana voice recognition works for an indefinite period then breaks. At this point, I have no idea what breaks it but the only thing that will fix it is to reboot the phone. I suspect one of the applications allowed to use the microphone might be the culprit.

    I also played with registry a bit and found out that Parental filter on edge is turning always on after a soft reset.

    You will have to restart your pc in recovery modus and somewhere choose the option: Allow unsigned drivers to install. I am on vacation now so I don't the exact steps. You may google for that. It has been described couple of times.

    I can, and in fact i also have an SD card reader so data transfer is not really a problem. What i'm worried about is that i may not be able to flash the ROM :/

    Anyone feel like our ativ got slower again with the new version 14393.178? Sometimes my homescreen seems to "crash" and reloads. Or it is just whatsapp beta which uses all ram? How do you feel about the update? Did you find any ativ specific changes?

    You mean 14393.187... right? Nothing so far. Will report back here if I notice anything different.

    proximity sensor issue still exist when using auto brightness, together with manual brightness seems failed to really change the level of screen brightness.

    Cotana still deaf

    I don't feel any change MSFT had done through the last few builds, not sure which direction they are heading nor what can we expect...
