Updated my L930, L925, L830, L820, L735 phones. Seems to be fine. But in my L930 the Flashlight button dissapered in the top dropdown meny. Just a blank square hole there now. Anyone else that got the same? How to get it back?
Updated on my 950 XL, runs super smooth and even day one I want ot say the battery life is better. I turned Cortana and location back on and its draining about 1-1.5% per hour if I am not using it. Nice improvement for sure from the 3-4% I was experiencing before.
Updated my Lumia 640 to .242 last night without problems. Rich Capture seems to work correctly now, with shorter saving times. Battery usage remains at about 4.6%/hour (double 8.1).
In an attempt to improve battery life, I tried to shut off Cortana, but can find no settings to do so! Anyone know how to do this with 242?
Seems a bit early, though, doesn't it? With the rumors of a late July release for the PC build, I'm assuming that the mobile would be on the same schedule. It's possible, but it seems to early for that.
Could be cumulative. Fast and Slow must be teaching them something and they are patching retroactively I imagine. If the .242 is just patching Threshold, then WaaS should deliver it to Production like it did .218.
There is still an experimental element (limited risk) to Release. Witness how Release tested .168 for awhile before that went Production. Then .218 came pretty close behind.
Again, just a theory. I have no Inside knowledge (pun intended with malice), but won't they get way more telemetry pushing down the pyramid to the bottom? Heck, it's almost May now.
