    Rmabwing, do tell us about those new batteries you ordered for the phone. And the link to them too. 5000 mah sounds positively yummy! O_O :D

    I'm also don't able to get last Redstone builds. I also downgrase to stock and now stuck at 8.1. Any idea? Maybe Microsoft cover this backdoor and now we not able use registry hack?
    I actually got back to 10586 but for some reason can't get back to 14291, let alone the latest build 14327. I don't get it.

    Tell us how they hold up when you receive them Rmabwing. :)

    Also worth noting for everyone on here is that since the ATIV SE uses the same batteries as the S4, you are bound to get cheaper batteries if you purchase for the S4 model instead. :D However, my only qualm with these is if the amperage claims are legit on these, because you know, 5000 mAh in the same physical package as the OEM batteries leaves me wondering. Which is why your feedback on the issue is so vital to all of us on the fence about pulling this trigger. :) ^_^

    I know I'd buy in a heartbeat if I knew the battery was actually even close to that advertised claim. :)

    I have the battery now and it seems to hold charge much longer than the OEM battery. It doesn't drain as quick and does not get hot at all. But, let me use it for about a week and I will update on it's quality then (length of charge under normal usage, etc.). Also, keep in mind, I'm stuck on build 10586 at the moment; that build doesn't seem to have the battery issues that build 14291 had. I am going to continue to get that build back; if I do I will update on battery life again. We'll see.....

    Waiting on your detailed findings on the battery then. And just wondering though, but if the battery lasts this long on WM10 10586, it should be positively Nokia 3310 on WP 8.1. Also, I seem to have forgotten altogether. But with the updates, we get tethering to work, yesh? :)

    Guys kindly tell me if its really worthwhile after upgrading through the method as suggested by op.

    I mean are there any bugs or shortcomings which will make you want to go back to 8.1?

    I have had no real problems to speak of under Win10. The only trouble I'm having now is getting back to the latest build. Don't know what is causing that. The only reason I went back to 8.1 is because of this issue. But like I said, I'm back to Win10 build 10586 with no updates happening.

    Looks like something was either changed in a different registry setting, or MS figured out a way to block out phones mimicking the registry settings.

    I guess the first and easiest thing to find out is if someone on the newest Redstone build with a Lumia 950 could confirm what their current PhoneManufactuer and PhoneManufactuerModelName fields are showing as.

    My build of 14291 is actually working absolutely smoothly with great battery life on my backup ATIV SE. Would like to get it up to date thought to see how newer builds treat it.

    Any other thoughts or ideas on how to get the newest Redstone builds downloading again?

    As i told earlier, I had data draining issue on .218 build. Yesterday i reset the phone from about option. Now that issue is solved and everything is back to normal. I don't think Redstone build is a good option for ativ se. Only registry of devices with same chipset should be used. I am happy to use this build and won't update unless there is another stable one.

    Has anyone tried throwing the newly rolled out .242 release yet? Seems promising, though there arent many reviews of it in yet though from anyone/anywhere. :(

    The batteries are moderately better than OEM. They do last a while longer but unless you absolutely need a new battery, don't buy it just yet. Where the OEM Samsung battery lasted me for approximately two days this one lasts about three, give or take a few hours depending on what you are doing. It still drains quite fast when streaming music through Pandora. This happened with the OEM also. It also drains rapidly when downloading updates to apps and it gets somewhat hot. Can't recall if this happened with the OEM or not. Well, that is the jist of it. Would I recommend the battery I bought? Yes, but only if you need one. If not, save your money until you do.

    Okay, I am finally getting the .242 update. I did some reading and found out you need to be on the Release Preview not the Slow or Fast Rings. I am going to try the Fast Ring again after this update completes.

    UPDATE: After updating to .242 I changed over to the Fast Ring but it still won't update past 10586.

    Well, I get the impression now that we'll be restricted to the Threshold release only at this rate. Unless we can hack our way back into the Fast Release. And on that note, I guess a good Threshold is still better than nothing. But now that we've had a taste of a bit of Fast Ring, Threshold, and 8.1, whats the consensus on battery comparison. Is .242 beginning to reach the levels of 8.1 for anyone yet?

    And thank you for the updates on the battery Bwing. I was wondering how they planned to stuff twice the battery into the same package. Guess I was right. A little bit atleast.

    download link given on first page by op says no files available.

    can someone give me another link?

    Thanks

    I collected files from internet. And did as suggested by op.

    my opinion:

    Its really a highly refreshing change from 8.1.
    I wanted the edge browser badly to stay on windows. I have it now.
    Everything is faster and smoother. Eg whatsapp and fb much smoother now.
    seems like a new phone with new system altogether.
    Soundalive is still here under settings/extras. High five!! Am a bass head.😁

    There is no point in going back. Its so much beautiful and advanced as compared to 8.1.

    Last, cant thank op enough for this. Just google " windows 10 on ativ se" his is the first link. One doesn't have to research endlessly to install 10 on ativ se. High five again😁
    thanks a lot to all who put together this wonderful piece of work.

    I have had .242. installed on my SE for a couple of days, and don't like it. Notifications are mucked up now, I sometimes see the notification icon when there is nothing to be notified about, and when I do get a legit notification they often don't show up in the tray. REALLY annoying.

    It's been quiet, for sure. I have had no issues with .242. It seems very stable and quick. My battery life is great and all apps work fine. I just wish I could get back to where I was before, build 14291, or beyond.

    Yes, would be nice to know if there were workarounds to getting back onto the faster rings, because that sort of tells us if we can stay on upgrades beyond the TH onto the RS when its released, or if this will be it for us. And yes, sure has been super quiet. I was quietly praying for someone to post besides myself just to be sure that this thread hasnt died out. :(
