    Mine's been fine so far. Been using it for about a week.

    Is slow motion recording working on the SE?
    No, I don't believe our chipset is supported.

    It's same chipset as in L930 or 1520, Snapdragon 800...

    Thanks you very much for the guide. It worked and I am now running my ATIV SE with WP10. The instructions were great and you deserve a beer or three for the effort and quality of the guide. :) :)

    First of all, a tremendous thank you to all of those who did the heavy lifting in figuring out how to get W10 on the SE, which Asellite so graciously constructed into a thorough and easy to follow guide through the process. I purchased an SE on eBay shortly after switching to Verizon from a regional carrier that didn't support any Windows devices, and I was becoming quite disheartened at the prospect that it might never see W10. Now, to finish the process, I need your help.

    *Copied from my post on Asellite's "Complete Guide" thread*
    I've run into a snag and need to know if it's okay to proceed. I followed the steps to the letter, went to the insider app, applied for fast ring, then went to install updates and, instead of getting windows 10, I'm seeing an update for 8.10.14219.341. I can't retry the Insider update without installing the 8.10.14219 update, or else resetting the device and trying again. Which of these options would be safe, if any?

    So now that my ATIV SE is running WP10 flawlessly, I am going to ask a perhaps silly question.

    Is the LG Lancet able to be upgraded in the same way? Is the processor and chip architecture the same as any Nokia models in the queue for upgrade?

    I want to get my wife on WP10 and she really likes the Lancet form factor.

    Cheers!

    Does it actually run flawlessly? No issues at all?

    So glad to hear it. No, I'm not convinced the same process would end well for the lancet. There's a solid chance it could brick your phone. If I were you I'd see about picking her up a 640 if you guys are on GSM. If you're on CDMA, the ATIV SE can be had for like $70 these days!

    THIS. For anyone who wants a windows phone and doesn't need the latest and greatest, there's insane value out there on eBay/Swappa/etc. I bought an Ativ SE back in August on eBay, for which I paid $120 NEW. I had left a Verizon store earlier that day where I bought a Lumia 735, which they sell for 200. The 735 is a great device, but when you compare it's specs to the Ativ SE, given the price, it's embarrassing. The only difference was that the Ativ was stuck in Samsung/Verizon purgatory, which the folks of this forum have rectified.

    So seeing as the "Shipping" version of Windows 10 Mobile (10586) was just pushed out today, I'm curious if any ATIV SE users will be upgrading to this release, and if so what their experiences are.

    It sounds like 10581 was pretty smooth for all that tried it, and if this shipping release is even better, I think I'm going to dive in. Any and all info from those updating is truly appreciated :)

    Thank you in advance!

    Thanks for the details.

    But any idea if this (enabling internet sharing and MMS on Verizon Samsung ATIV SE after Windows Mobile 10 update) is doable on build 10586 (I jumped straight to this build) ?


    * I can't find the Preview for Developers app any more. It is not found in the app list, and I can't seem to be able to uninstall it as I can't find it.

    * Using the RootTools means, I can't find any of the Registry keys either.

    Any ideas?


    [SIZE=5]This tutorial is not mine!!! The credit for this goes to user Brad Herr. Don't thank me, thank him.

    [snip]

    Congrats. Your MMS and internet sharing should now work on T-Mobile. You may need to restart your phone for everything to take effect.

    I updated my ATIV but battery life is not very good and have a camera bug with focus
    11-20-2015 09:30 PM
  18. djblitz's Avatar
    So, the battery life is a little meh and then I have an issue with some apps. After a while whenever I try to open the apps the screen just shows the start screen background for a while and then I have to close the app. In order for the app to work, I have to uninstall and re-download it. No idea why tho. It has happened with WhatsApp, Windows Central (which I have not been able to re-install since) and a few others.

    That doesn't sound so great. Wonder if I should hold off :(

    I recommend to stay with 8.1 until we have a stable release, I will revert to 8.1 cause the bugs and battery life.

    The battery life takes a hit no matter what phone you use, and bugs are on par with vanilla wp8. Edge browser is much better, worth the upgrade just for that. It takes a while to get used to the lack of haptic feedback though.

    I turn off haptic feedback anyway, so that's one thing that doesn't bother me. How is Cortana? Does everything still function with her ok?

    I thought I would give an update.
    Toolkit pro will not install yet.
    Had a problem with the Windows Central app crashing. Had some trouble getting it re-installed.
    Had very rare unexpected reboot.
    I consider those very minor.
    The one that bothers me the most is GPS performance is very bad.
    Does not matter if I am using Maps, Copilot or Sygic.

    I really like W10M. Worse case I will put my SIM back in my other ATIV-SE. I hope I don't have to though.

    Back to GPS
    I have been using a Surface Pro 1 with a USB GPS dongle on Copilot for Laptop in my truck when on long trips . That is a touch friendly desktop app that is rock solid. All the Modern Window 8 or 10 apps even with middle ware to convert NMEA to windows location services have been at least a little flaky.

    A long way of saying I'm not sure if it is just Windows flaky GPS drivers exacerbated by not having specific firmware for the ATIV-SE?
    How is voice navigation for you guys? My speedometer might work for awhile then just stop?

    The registry key you want to edit for Internet Sharing is:
    HKLM\System\ControlSet001\Services\ICSSVC\Settings\EntitlementRequired - change value to "0" (zero, without quotes)

    The registry keys you want to edit for MMS are:
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Messaging\PerSimSettings\L egacy...
    ADDR =*http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc (this is for T-Mobile, use your provider's mms address)
    WapPushTechnology = 0
    UAProf = <Blank>
    IMsiAuthenticationToken = <Blank>
    DefaultContentLocationUrl =*http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc (this is for T-Mobile, use your provider's mms address)

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Cellular\MVSettings\IMSISp ecific\Default\CellUX...
    HideMMSAPN = 0
    HideAPN = 0

    Hope that helps. You may also need to go into SIM settings and add the APNs manually after updating to W10.
