Windows 10 preview build 14379 heads to Fast ring Insiders on PC and Mobile | Windows Central

Issues? Bugs? Solutions? For all things Build 14379 of W10M. Discuss it all here.

Is your device behaving oddly, is something just not right? This is the place for discussion of software and hardware issues!
[TIP]Here is some useful information you may find yourself needing.
Some issues with responsiveness and app delays can be resolved by either restarting your phone or performing a Soft Reset.

If things get a bit more serious, you may opt to perform a hard reset or software reset.

Lastly, if things really get serious, you may need the Software Recovery Tool to recover your phone back to working order - head over to the Microsoft FAQ Page for more information.

Make sure you check the official Windows 10 Mobile Support Page as well for some of the most common tips and trouble shooting guides.[/TIP]
[INFO]Restarting your phone involves turning it off and then turning it on again. Turn off your phone by pressing the power button until you are prompted to "Slide down to power off". Turn your phone on again by pressing the power button until it vibrates.

A soft reset is similar to pressing the reset button in PCs and has the same effect as pulling out the battery of your phone and then putting it back in. For phones with non-removable batteries, press the volume down and power button together until your phone restarts. Be aware that when using Windows 10, the voume down and power button combination will also launch Windows Feedback. Just continue to hold down the buttons for a full 10 seconds in order to trigger the soft reset. For phones with removable batteries, you can either opt for the button combination or remove the battery and then return it.

A hard reset or a software reset will reformat your phone by removing all the user information leaving only the bare OS and firmware currently installed in your phone. It does erase data so you should always keep a good backup of your phone just in case you have to resort to this option.

The software reset can be done by going to your phone Settings > System > About > tap on "Reset your phone." You will be prompted once before doing this just to be sure. Be sure, also, to have everything backed up since there would be no way to recover all of your files.

The hard reset accomplishes the same thing as the software reset, but can be accomplished when the phone is non-responsive and you are unable to enter into settings. To perform the Hard Reset, "Power off the phone > hold Volume Down > press Power > keep holding Volume Down until you see the exclamation (!) screen, then immediately release the Volume Down. Now tap Volume Up / Volume Down / Power / Volume Down. You should see the spinning gears and your phone will reflash the last OS version held in recovery.

The Software Recovery Tool is the final option, for example for "bricked" phones that would no longer turn on, be charged, etc. This can be used to either roll back to a previous OS version or force an update to a more current OS version[/INFO]
Remember, when reporting bugs be descriptive! The more information you give, the better the chance someone will be able to help you.

What OS version? Any special conditions that should be noted? What were you doing? What is the result? Any error codes or messages given? What have you tried for solutions? What variant of the phone are you using? Single SIM or Dual SIM?

Please describe as much as possible about the bug so others may try and replicate the bug and don't make suggestions for solutions that you have already tried which have failed.
[INFO]When reporting bugs/issues, please also use the Windows Feedback app to report issues directly to Microsoft. Microsoft don't actively read forums looking for people reporting issues when they have a data collection system built right into the operating system. They use WF to analyse numbers and prioritise fixes (issues with more reports, get sorted quicker).

"You can use the Windows Feedback app to tell us which features you love about your Lumia with Windows 10, or when something could be better.
1.To launch the app, swipe over to the App list, and then select Windows Feedback.
2.See if someone else has given similar feedback by entering the topic, such as Microsoft OneDrive.
3.If you find similar feedback, tap the Upvote or tap on the feedback to open it, write the problem details to Add details-field and tap Send.
4.To narrow your search to a specific topic, you can filter the results by picking the category that matches your feedback the closest. For example, for feedback about the Microsoft OneDrive, select Apps and Games > OneDrive.
5.If you don?t find any similar feedback, tap + to add new feedback. Select the correct category and subcategory from the dropdown-list.
6.Enter your feedback (the more details the better!), add a screenshot if you can, and tap Send.
7.Your feedback will automatically upload when you are charging your phone and connected to Wi-Fi, but you can also upload the feedback manually by tapping ? > Upload feedback data."

> Store Updates & Downloads Page hangs on occasion.
> "Hey Contana" not responding when Bluetooth is "on", but not used.
> Voice Recorder still a NO-GO, for me.

Re: W10M Insider Preview 14379 Discussion (Redstone Branch, Fast Ring)

I'm still poking around and checking it out. I ended up doing a hard reset to fix the issue of being unable to get rid of the phantom MS Voice Recorder update in the store. The hard reset fixed it, but I've now lost Visual Voicemail. I'm not convinced its a fault of the new OS; I'm leaning more toward it being a carrier problem. It's also possible things do still need some time to settle.

UPDATE: 24 hours later, still no vvm, and the 'ghost' voice recorder app keeps trying to download the 'update.' Bummer. I was really hoping the hard reset would help.

1.Apps in the store keep asking to download even though they are already installed.
2. Ringtones seem not as loud as before.

The only issue I'm seeing is that the Outlook Mail app doesn't remember my Exchange password. It's fine with GMail and Outlook.com, but my work Exchange server (Office 365) doesn't hold the password.

Last two fast ring builds, videos recorded with memory card as save location, message says bad file format when trying to play back. Works fine when saved to internal memory. Also, option for default phone recording app grayed out. None is the selection.

The only problem I have so far is that i dont have the option to choose the best light when capturing with flash turned on. Is there any explanation for that?

Still got a phantom update for Windows Voice Recorder that won't install. SMS notifications are delayed on the Band 2 as well.

Re: W10M Insider Preview 14379 Discussion (Redstone Branch, Fast Ring)

I just had a crazy issue with my 950XL...when the phone was sitting on the charger a text message came through. The toast began to drop down and the notification sound went off and stopped abruptly half way through and continued to make a loud static tone that never ended. It sounded like "ba-bingggggggggggggggggg" and kept going forever and was full volume. The vibrate motor turned on as well and continued forever without stopping. The toast froze and half the screen went black and blue and froze. Luckily i was near my phone when this happened and did a soft reset to power it off. Hasn't happened again, yet.

Re: W10M Insider Preview 14379 Discussion (Redstone Branch, Fast Ring)

any big battery drain issues on the icon/930??
I don't know if my ICON 929 is a valid comparison, but so for the battery usage has been ok - that's just over 24 hours.
Peace. Alan

Rare, but sometimes happened in past. that's a freeze in the middle of a notify. Only soft reset stops it

Re: W10M Insider Preview 14379 Discussion (Redstone Branch, Fast Ring)

Having issues with getting Hey Cortona with this build and my Icon.
I did a hard reset after updating to this build and ever since then Hey Cortona just says I need to turn Cortona on first.
Cortona is on from what I can tell as hitting Cortona app it shows all the data in the notebook like I had previously setup.
Any suggestions on that?
