    Been running .63 since it came out with no hard reset.

    The Good
    No win 8 apps had to be re-installed (yet). I go with universal apps where I can.

    The Bad
    Had one random reboot this AM while running the MSN app.
    GPS nav is highly unreliable. Not sure if this is just a windows 10 or an ATIV-SE/windows 10 thing.

    I think you need to go back to 8.0 then take the normal updates.

    Actually found an active forum for Ativ SE on WP10...not many out there from my perspective.

    Once I found a way to revert my Ativ SE back to stock I immediately edited the Registry to install W 10 Mobile for insiders. Once I did upgrade the first time it was to build 10.0.10586.29. I was skeptical of wiping it out (Hard Reset) possibly causing boot issues, but I have done that also with no issues only on build 10.0.10586.63. The phone has worked well even better in some cases after the hard reset. I would not have done this if I did not know a way to revert back to WP 8.0 though.

    Wanted to post a brief update. .63 had been very stable and no real issues for me. Battery life remained the same, and as I mentioned previously, I have not ever had issues with battery, so still no change there. I had also performed a hard reset after .63, and no overall issues to report. As the phone then reverts back to ATIV SE, Windows Insider would no longer produce any available updates. Things were stable, so I was happy to remain there.

    Heard about the new release channel, Production. Grabbed that, and the next day got the new .107 OTA update. AWESOME. Good to know Hard Rest and Production channel are now giving me updates again.

    Here are a few screen captures:

    I'm able to confirm the same. Wp10 no reg hack needed to go to .107. Insider shows I can now download production builds.

    One problem I'm having. How do we unlock tethering and mms on windows phone 10, now that I've hard reset.

    Since W10 allows dev mode you only need to deploy a reg editor (root tool) and do the edits needed to get MMS and Internet Sharing going.

    I'm able to deploy root tool v2 to my phone (the customwpsystem_0600.xap trick doesn't work on wm10) but every time I try to change an entry it just says failed. Any ideas?

    Make sure every time you try to change something that HKLM (Local Machine) is checked. By default, there are no selections made.

    Got it. I selected local machine, but was putting HKLM at the start of the registry address. Your post tipped me off that I didn't need to. Thank you. :)

    Finally got .107 installed on my backup ATIV SE as well thanks to the tips!

    Out of curiosity, is there any advantage to keeping the registry fields on NOKIA vs Samsung, or vice versa? Wondering if it will need ot be Nokia again once the Redstone builds get rolled out to other non-Lumia 950 devices.

    Last but not least, anyone notice any overall improvements with .107 vs older builds? I was on .36 and went back to my ATIV SE with 8.1 due to bugs.

    Thanks again!

    .107 is the best build I've used to date. If you leave your phone model as Nokia then you can sign up for fast ring, slow ring, or production ring. If you put your model back to Samsung, you can only choose production ring in the insider app.

    I could do a hard reset of .107 without any issues, big relief! But I see only a production release option in Windows Insider, while you have an insider release option . . . maybe cos you came from .63

    Everyone will only get production releases (lets be honest, those ones will be the less buggy ones of the bunch) and the only way to get fast or slow ring is to change your phone model to the Nokia equivalent. For me, after .107, I'd rather just have production releases.

    So far so good with this build. Scrolling on start screen (and for apps) is much better in this build than in the previous. Outlook Mail was initially messed up, but just got an update and it's fine now. Got my MMS working. Very happy with this so far...

    Update: Lock Screen background/Bing Image does not work....
    Also: SIM/Service seems to take a long time to engage, and seems to drop a lot...

    Yes! Scrolling is much smoother. I'm happy I took the jump up...there were a ton of app updates after I completed the install. It takes time but it's worth it. MMS is better too.

    Update: terrible battery drain; i don't think it's the phone. I switched my SIM and SD cards back into my stock Lumia 830; updated to the same 14291 build, updated all my apps, and in 20 minutes, my battery drained from a full 100% down to 65%....i think it's the OS, not the Ativ SE...2 hours later, under normal use, i'm down to 35%...

    Update - DO NOT try a hard reset. You don't get an option to sign into a Microsoft account, and that means you cannot install new apps from the Store. Updation of pre-installed apps is allowed.

    Hmmm . . . I doubt there would be app updates available if you update from .164, more likely if you do a hard reset after updating.
    Will write about it if I go for it :-)
    I'm running 14291.1001 and i've gotten a ton of updates yesterday and today; all the office apps updated; Outlook Mail and Calendar updated; no problem with updates....

    So long folks. Heading to grab an android phone. I gotta say, the ativ se was an amazing phone, but the OS situation is questionable. Unfortunately amazing hardware, and a great forum to come to with great people isn't enough to keep me on windows phone anymore. Hope everything works out for you guys in the end.

    What device name/model reg edit did you make, was it Microsoft MDG? Thanks.

    Lumia 950
    HKLM\SYSTEM\Platform\DeviceTargetingInfo
    "PhoneManufacturer"="MicrosoftMDG"
    "PhoneManufacturerModelName"="RM-1104_1078"

    This version is running super HOT! Major battery drain; terrible; it's not exactly the same chipset as the Nokia 927; maybe that's the problem. I've gone back to my other phone, set up as a 'NOKIA' 'RM-927'; i'm on the insider Slow Ring, running 10586.107; much better! No battery drain, super cool.

    Updates pushed me to 10586.164; phone runs awesome! Been having almost daily updates of MS apps; Outlook Mail Settings seems to be up and down; everything else is super...

    I guess it's goodbye for me in regards to ATIV SE. I had terrible signal with it on Tmobile. I'd get LTE but there would be no data connection and I had to keep rebooting the phone a couple times for it to get a data connection. Not super great when you're in Vegas and trying to share some pics. Returned the ATIV SE and went back to my Lumia 640. Quite a shame because the ATIV SE ran like a dream compared to my 640.

    Go back to 8.1 and start over. I had the same problem. I have 8.11 on one SE and the .164 Icon version on the other. I personally think that is good as it is going to get. If the Icon gets an official update maybe something there. This has been a fun thread to be part of. I think I am at the end of this experiment. I truly appreciate the guide from the OP and a great friendly group of experimenters. I wish Microsoft appreciated how enthusiastic this group is to participate in the Windows 10 Mobile experience. For me, I have not had a contract for a long time. I noticed That AT&T is trying to improve signal in this area. I bought a 950XL on Amazon and going to try AT&T for a couple of months. If the carrier works out great. I not I still have family share plan (4 lines) on Verizon. Unless something new in Windows Phone comes out for Verizon I will have to change platforms. Best of luck.

    Hi guys, I currently use a 925 and an ativ s. But the SD card option has me using the ativ s more. I currently want to buy an Ativ SE over a 930 and 1520. So I can upgrade to windows 10. So I will like to know how the phone performs on windows 10. How is the battery life? How is the performance? is it ok for a daily driver? How does it compare to wp8.1 performance? Am typing this with my moms 1520 and I want something more compact?
