    Thank you
    but after restoring to 8.0 i have only managed to install that small update
    device keeps restarting whenever i tried to update my phone to 8.1, i am on windows phone 8.0 and airplane mode is always on, cant even turn off
    even after install that small update, during migrating data screen it restarted twice
    I just noticed, previously i didnt install samsung driver correctly , havent disable driver signatore verification before restoring to 8.0
    now i did that and restored same issue still
    infact it said update is unsuccessfull
    Is there anyway i can restore to 8.1 directly ?
    That's bad news mate, try to restore to 8.0 without the sim card and sd card and see what happens hope you can get fully functional pone again.

    Is the MMS & Internet Sharing tutorial instructions on post #13 only for Win10 Ativ SE? Or will it work for WP8.1 Ativ SE as well? Just need a clarification since there's some many different answers on here. Thank you.

    Start from scratch and go straight to 10536 (fast route). That's what I did, and I had no problems.
    i am trying from scratch again but the last time i dont recall being able to choose anything except for fast preview or regular preview and i chose the fast one.

    OK so after more than a few attempts this is what i had to do to make Wifi etc... all work as expected:

    thanks to everyone that helped here and i thought i would type what steps worked for me:

    use THIS post for files and specifics

    1. reset back to 8.0 then do all updates including stock apps to be on 8.1
    2. do a reset of the phone
    3. install Preview to SD and Insider to Phone
    4. Unlock it
    5. deploy Custom WPS and place XAP file on root of SD and patch Preview
    6. open preview and use Editor :

    DELETE following:

    PhoneFriendlyName: Lumia
    PhoneManufacturer
    PhoneManufacturerModelName

    then create strings:

    - PhoneFriendlyName: Lumia 830
    - PhoneManufacturer: Nokia
    - PhoneManufacturerModelName: RM-983

    7. open Insider chose the fastest update option
    8. let it download and install W10

    it is not my primary phone but feels solid enough if it was.

    issues i have seen:

    - lockscreen can be buggy displaying content and often nothing at all but i dont really rely on it for info so it open just fine so doesnt bother me at all
    - the 2 Apps IE and APN's will not update and error out but all others have been fine
    - WatchON will not work and has an error connecting to server

    overall performance has been solid and battery seems like it would be equal to 8.1 but i havent used it for calls and text

    Alright, who was the wiseguy who didn't tell me I had to use the Windows Phone SDK 8.1 to get this to finally work?

    Update: for those wanting to do it with AT&T, it does work. The MMS settings are:

    APN phone
    Username Not set
    Password Not set
    WAP Gateway proxy.mobile.att.net
    WAP Gateway Port 80
    MMSC http://mmsc.mobile.att.net

    No way to update directly unfortunately. The package we're using to flash our phones to 8.0 does not flash all sectors, so I'm going to assume that you disguised your phone as a phone with a different chipset. It probably installed some firmware that is not flashed in our recovery image. Make sure you have the drivers installed, redownload the 8.0 image (in case it was a bad download), and try again with a different cable. If it still doesn't work see if Verizon will give you a replacement. I've said this before and I'll say it again; we should be disguising this phone as the Lumia Icon because it has the same exact chipset on our phone, and it has Verizon provisioning. RM-927

    You all need to STOP doing this:

    - PhoneFriendlyName: Lumia 830
    - PhoneManufacturer: Nokia
    - PhoneManufacturerModelName: RM-983

    This phone does not have the same features as ours, nor does it have Verizon provisioning for future updates to the radio (if we ever get any). Also, you only need to change PhoneManufacturer and PhoneManufacturerModelName; it is not necessary to change the friendly name or any other values. I'm going to give a concise update process:

    - Use my tutorial to flash back to 8.0 GDR3.

    - When you setup the phone, just sign in and DO NOT restore any updates.

    - Let the phone sit and install all apps/updates from the Store before you update the OS/phone itself (even if it prompts you to).

    - Turn off your phone normally and turn it back on.

    - Install the OS/phone upgrade to 8.1.

    - Let the phone sit and install all apps/updates from the Store before doing anything.

    - Turn off your phone normally and turn it back on.

    - Check to see if there's an OS update, if there is, install it and repeat the last few steps (let it sit and install app updates, then turn it off and on normally).

    - Now you should be on 8.1.1 (8.1 Update) with all stock apps installed and up to date.

    - Turn off your phone. Hold down the Volume Down button while holding the Power button. Once the phone vibrates, let go of the Power button but continue holding Volume Down until an exclamation point (!) appears. From here, input the following combo: Vol Up, Vol Down, Power, Vol Down. The phone should restart, show the gears, and wipe the phone clean.

    - Once your phone is done and you're at the initial setup screen, set it up normally, log in to your account, but again DO NOT restore a backup.

    - Immediately after setup, go to Storage Sense and uninstall EVERY APP. You should be able to click Phone, Apps, and then select all to easily uninstall them all.

    - Once they're uninstalled, do a Soft Reset by holding the Volume Down and Power buttons until the phone restarts (let go of the buttons after it vibrates).

    - Let the phone sit and install all the app updates.

    - Install Preview for Developers, go to Storage Sense, and move it from Phone to SD Card.

    - Connect your phone to the computer and unlock your phone using the Developer Registration 8.1 application.

    - Sideload CustomWPSystem_0600.

    - Place CustomPFD_0300 on your SD Card.

    - Open CustomWPSystem on the phone, follow the instructions and replace Preview for Developers with CustomPFD.

    - Open CustomPFD, navigate to HKLM>System>Platform>DeviceTargettingInfo

    - Click PhoneManufacturer, type NOKIA in the field, and press Write.

    - Press back, and click PhoneManufacturerModelName, type RM-927 in the field, and press Write.

    - Go to Store and install Windows Insider.

    - Soft Reset (Vol Down and Power).

    - Open Windows Insider, and do what it says, follow the normal update process and you'll get to 10536.

    I just did these EXACT steps 3 days ago and it works perfectly; WiFi remains functional.

    This is my screenshot after using this method. Really does work. Takes about 2 hours to go through it. Wifi works, phone works, most of my apps work. Will do one update to get ready for Windows 10, the windows 10 upgrade, and another update (may be different for you).

    Next, you need to download Hack Tools.zip
    This comes with two files: Custom_WPSystem.xap and Custom_PfD.xap
    Can someone provide the URL for this, please? The one posted on the first page seems to be broken...

    I only want to modify the MMS and Internet Sharing registry so I can use it for at&t. I'm Not planning to upgrade to W10 mobile anytime soon. With that being said, will the tutorial on post # 13 work with WP8.1? Or does it only work for W10? I'll much appreciate if someone can help answer this and provide the files needed. Thanks!

    Is it Windows Phone SDK 8.1 or Windows Phone SDK 8.0 in order to work? Your tutorial is WP SDK 8.0. Can you also provide the correct files with the tutorial please? Thanks!

    *Note: I'm still on stock WP8.0 GDR3 and is about to upgrade to WP8.1. Not planning to upgrade to W10.

    Did anyone try to hard reset the phone being on Windows 10. Will it restore the registry values to Samsung W-750 instead of Nokia RM-927? Is it even safe to hard reset on ATIV SE on Windows 10? I'm not going to hack Wi-Fi sharing and MMS, do not need those anyway

    I finally got it to work using SDK 8.1 but you have to be on WP8.1. Also, I used the CustomWP version 600 not the 500. The patch MUST be the 300 version.

    Thanks man! Much appreciated for clarifying. Made my life one step easier. I'll upgrade to WP8.1 asap. Can you also provide me the files (SDK 8.1, CustomWP version 600, Custom PfD) or at least direct me where to download it? Thanks again!

    Google: Windows Phone SDK 8.1 download

    CustomWpSystem and go to the XDA link, same goes for the patch.

    Alright, I'm lost to the "Windows Phone SDK 8.1 download" as I don't know which one is it and is it the same as the "Windows Phone 8.1 Development Tools?" If so, do I need to install "Visual Studio?" I'm very lost, help please! Can you just give me the links where you got yours from? Or update your tutorial with the correct files link, that would make my life so much easier.

    For "CustomWpSystem," I found it from the XDA exactly like you said from here:
    [XAP][08/06/2015][0.6] CustomWPSystem - patc€ | Windows Phone 8 Development and Hacking | XDA Forums

    And for the "Patch," What is that? Is that the "CustomPfD?" I'm lost again. Help again, thanks! Still learning these stuff.

    Sorry, I'm out in the field. Yes, the patch is the PfD and should be in the same post. The SDK includes Visual Studio if I'm not mistaken.

    Ok, I didn't see the CustomPfd in that same post I provided or I must be blind but I was able to find the CustomPfD from another post at XDA here:
    [XAP][18/09/2015][0.6] CustomPFD: registry e… | Windows Phone 8 Development and Hacking | XDA Forums

    And for the WP SDK 8.1, there's too many downloads to know which one to download, is there a Lite version of it like the one you provided in your original tutorial? A Lite version of WP SDK 8.1?
