    I really want WP GDR 2 on my HTC 8S, but I don't want the W10 preview...

    If I check for updates and download one, can I delete that one without installing it?

    Your phone is not listed as phone to get w10 TP.

    Yeah, but I managed to do this with my L1520. First I installed wp10tp yesterday, but didn't like it, even couldn't have my contacts restored. So, today I used Lumia Software Recovery, then using windows insider started downloading GDR2 and deleted windows insider from the phone, so now I have only GDR2. My problem is I wanted to do the same with my wife's L822. The update is downloaded and is trying to install WP10 at once, without GDR2. I don't want it. So how can I cancel this update if it's already downloaded but not set up. If I don't cancel it, it will be set up automatically on the 15th of April. Does anybody know what to do?

    I'm on the same boat now. Unhappy with W10TP -> back to 8.1 GDR 1 -> Windows Insider to get back 8.1 GDR2 -> downloaded W10TP instant instead :-\

    Any idea how to prevent the update?

    Hard reset.
    The trick to get GDR2 with the insider does not work anymore from 10136 onwards..
