    Try setting PhoneManufacturerModelName to RM-927, restarting, and trying insider again. If that doesn't work, you may have to try again from the beginning.
    Yeah Ive tried doing different combinations and restarting etc. to no avail. I flashed to 8.0 and restarted the process from scratch -> it worked this time as expected and now installing W10M for the 1st time.
    The problem was on step 17 where insider was not giving me the option to join any ring as seen in the screenshot. That caused me not to be able to get to 8.10.14219.341

    Use Insider



    It says it can't find the file because it's in your Temp folder. Looks like you're trying to run/deploy from the zip. Extract properly into a folder on your desktop or other User folder (downloads, documents, etc) and try again
    I downloaded the file on desktop n unzipped it... You can see the path in the pic i attached.. not sure whybi am getting that error.

    With the solution that I'm preparing, when you do a hard reset your phone will still be interop and cap unlocked, and already configured to continue getting updates for the Icon. The new Interop Tools pre-release from this morning integrates a way to use the NDTK library/service on non-Lumia phones, so long as they are interop and cap unlocked. This means that Samsung-specific hacks are unnecessary for most purposes once you're on Win 10. This also SIGNIFICANTLY reduces the length of my upcoming tutorial. In my tutorial I will also include steps for people who have already done rmabwing5's tutorial. If you are getting the phone soon and want Windows 10, there's no reason to hold off on doing rmabwing5's tutorial; it's very well done and is a great precursor to my upcoming tutorial.



    If your contacts, texts, etc are synced with your Microsoft account, you'll get them back on a hard reset as long as you sign back in with that account, even if you don't restore. You can restore a 8.1 backup on 10, but you can't restore a 10 backup on 8.1. In my opinion, your best bet is starting fresh on Windows 10 (you'll still get contacts/texts if synced with MS account), at least for the sake of performance.



    That's up to you. IF Windows 10 has instructions that are specific to Samsung RPC, then having the default settings would be best. Unfortunately I do not know if that is the case or not. If you use the Icon settings, you'll keep getting fast/slow updates, but it's possible that you will continue getting updates with Release Preview even with Ativ SE settings. I have not tested that, so please let us know if you decide to try. If you want to try, keep the stock Ativ SE settings, go to Windows Insider Program in settings, and try changing to Release Preview.

    If you need to change DeviceTargetingInfo, just enable developer mode from settings, install Interop Tools, et voila.
    Hey Jeemo,

    Do you have an ETA on your new more permanent solution? Also, I'm currently on WM10 Threshold OS Build 10.0.10586.494 with Insider Preview and RegEdit program installed.

    Do I need to start from scratch to unlock phone to make it look like an Icon so I get all the latest and greatest release updates without issue? Or do you recommend saying on Insider and just changing phone specs in registry to get on the Redstone track?

    Any and all info is truly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

    No ETA yet. Technically I already have a permanent solution completed. I'm just waiting until Interop Tools is in a more final form so I can make the tutorial as short as possible. If enough people are interested, I could write up the current solution this weekend, and just include tutorials from that point in the future. My current solution requires starting from 8.1 at the latest, however, I can adapt it for people already on TH2/RS1 so long as they do a Full FS Unlock. I wanted to wait until the new features (and a very exciting upcoming feature) were in a final form, so I could have 2 simple tutorials; 1 for people starting fresh at stock 8.0, and 1 for people who have already done rmabwing5's tutorial. The less tutorials there are, the less confusing it will be to the uninitiated. If you'd like, I could just send you the necessary steps/files via PM, and it will set you up for the future.

    More importantly, with some of the recent changes in Interop Tools, the permanent solution can be applied for anybody that's on RS1 already. If you're already running TH2/RS1, there's not much of a point integrating my permanent solution immediately unless you were already planning on doing a hard reset. The main reason I'm waiting on a future Interop Tools release is because it will make the tutorial significantly shorter and less complicated.

    Just to be clear, the only difference between my solution and rmabwing5's current tutorial is that on a hard reset you will already be eligible to receive updates from Insider, and you will be interop/cap unlocked. If you aren't planning on starting fresh, doing a hard reset, or attempting to unlock the bootloader, there isn't much of a reason to switch to my method at this time.

    I did rmabwing5's tutorial. After reaching TH1, I hard reset. Oddly, with registry settings back to Samsung values, I still got the update to TH2, but no further. Installed interop and changed back to Icon settings and then got RS1. No insider activated.
    Overall the phone is working well. No crashed or restarts and the battery lasts well over a day. but I have had some problems: Camera does not work well and I cant take pictures. Ativ camera works but yesterday I was experiencing problems where hitting the shutter button will do nothing. Also, I had one instance when the screen would not wake but I I continued to get messages. A soft reset solved that.
    I can wait for a new tutorial and think I would like to have the possibility of hard reset.

    The camera will work better with the values for the Ativ SE than for the Icon. My solution will keep the Icon values after a hard reset, but I'm working on a way to have that not effect the camera.

    Hi everyone. Thanks for the new guide.

    I have followed the guide and managed to get all the way searching for update, but I keep getting the following error:

    There was a temporary issue with a server or your Internet connection during the update. (801881d0)

    I have tried deleting and re-adding my wifi connection but getting nowhere atm. What I have noticed is that if I go into Insider again, I have to re-enroll. I tried using Windows Upgrade Adviser and it says phone not supported. Not sure if that means anything.

    Stuck on step 19.

    PS> My current registry settings are set to Lumia ICON as per guide, before the change to 929 on step 21

    I kept the Icon settings and switched to the Fast Ring to get the Anniversary Update. RS1 gave me ridiculous battery drain (100% to 40% in 30 minutes) which is why I went to the Fast Ring. I use the Ativ Camera and it's been flawless the whole time. The Windows Camera app was not too good and the HDR setting reminded me of my Alcatel Fierce XL. I'll be keeping an eye on the battery with AU and report back.

    I am very intrigued with all this thread, and can you please report on how well it works with the mainstream anniversary update? Were you able to install Lumia Access Point? It is what I use to grant Internet and MMS on the Verizon Lumias when I activate them to AT&T, just installing with my GSM SIM inserted after performing a hard reset

    Anniversary Update works fantastically on the device, perhaps better than the Icon aside from the camera. You don't need Lumia Access Point; that functionality is built into Windows 10. Regarding MMS and tethering with this phone on AT&T, you can absolutely make changes to the registry to allow for what you need, without needing a separate access point. I'm a bit busy at the moment, but tonight or tomorrow I will post the related registry keys and other info. Some of it has been posted in this thread, I believe, but you will need some extra things.

    I've had no problems with the anniversary update. But I upgraded to RS2, even on my daily driver, because it is very stable on my test phone. As far as tethering on the AT&T network, I can't confirm this, yet. My daily driver has a Tracfone (CDMA - Verizon) SIM card and routes through Verizon's towers; my test phone has a Tracfone (GSM - AT&T) SIM card, which if I get a Tracfone card for it, will route through AT&T's towers. I plan on getting a card eventually for my test phone but it might be a few more weeks before I do so. My point is, even though I have the ability to test the ATIV SE as a GSM phone, I am limited at the moment due to my particular service. This was a lot of rambling to say I can't answer your question, yet. As a side note, the ATIV SE does see my GSM card so I'm assuming it works as a GSM phone as well as a CDMA phone. Also, since it is unlocked, it should work fine on GSM. Have fun with the ATIV SE; they are a great phone. Okay, enough of my babbling.

    You need to search these boards and find a registry editor. There are a couple of reg edits you need to do to change APNs and get tethering going. They are:

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Cellular\MVSettings\IMSISpecific\Default\CellUX\HideMMSAPN - The value needs to be 0 (zero).

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Cellular\MVSettings\IMSISpecific\Default\CellUX\HideAPN - This value also needs to be 0.

    HKLM\System\ControlSet001\Services\ICSSVC\Settings\EntitlementRequired - You guessed it, put a 0 in it.

    Sorry I haven't responded yet as I previously promised (same goes to people who have PMed me; been a busy week, just accepted a new job). If you're already on Windows 10, go to Settings > Update > For Developers, enable Developer Mode. Then you can sideload most apps. Look at Interop Tools.

    So here is an update, Im not on insider and last night it updated to 10.0.14393.189 - the camera app seems to be working properly now.
    I have not mentioned this before because it seemed to be random and I was waiting to see if it would go away: since TH1, there is a problem with charging. Sometimes the phone will not detect the cable, and will just not charge, even after unplugging and plugging it back in a few times. Sometimes it just take about a whole minute to toggle charging on. Sometimes it will charge but very slowly. After being on charge all night, this morning it was barely at 70%. I have tried this with different configs of cables+chargers and in different sockets around the house and results seem to be random.
    Another problem I have been having since TH1: I can't get additional languages to download. I add them in the languages menu and under each language I add it says that a download is needed, however they never do download.

    Congrats on the job Jeemo.

    Can anybody else help me out please as I am stuck?

    I flashed back to stock, started again, upgraded to 306, changed the registry settings as per tutorial, and got stuck in the part where I'm trying to find the .341 update @ step 19. I just keep getting the same error:

    There was a temporary issue with a server or your Internet connection during the update. (801881d0)

    That happened to me the first time as well. I first had a problem at step 17, where I was not able to join any of the insider rings (do you also have this?). This seems to be a requirement for getting the .341 update. Im not sure what the reason was for not being able to join any of the rings, but probably I did wrong during my first attempt. Try a hard reset (or two) before trying step 17.

    Was going to try out this new guide since I am stuck on 10.586, but can't get my Windows 10 64bit laptop to recognize my ATIV when it is in download mode. Was going to go back to 8.0 and start from scratch, but can't get it to recognize it in the flashing app to roll back to Win 8.0.

    Got interop loop tools installed, but adjusting the registry values won't push it to update beyond 10.586. Pretty frustrating. Really want the new builds, and was willing to live with some minor bugs, but to the point of almost looking at a Nokia 735 since I am on Verizon, or maybe even going to an Android phone, which I really don't like. Will not even consider an IPhone.

    I would advise against buying a 735. Honestly, the Snapdragon 400 is so weak that you'll encounter lag just navigating through the OS. You can get an open box Lumia Icon on eBay for $160, which would be a much better value. If you do decide to buy a 735, definitely buy it on ebay. You can get them manufacturer refurbished for $75.
