    Next build of Windows 10 Mobile coming Tuesday, but it won't be simple

    Blair Hanley Frank

    Windows Phone users hankering for the next preview build of Windows 10 dont have to wait much longer.

    Starting Tuesday, members of the Windows Insider Program can upgrade their phones to Windows 10 Mobile build 10036, though doing so will take some work.
    Thats because the new build includes a bug that prevents a direct upgrade from the most recent publicly available build of Windows 10 Mobile, according to Gabe Aul, the general manager for Microsofts Operating Systems Group Data and Fundamentals team.

    In order to get the new upgrade installed, users will first have to downgrade to Windows Phone 8.1 using the Windows Phone Restore Tool, Aul said in a tweet Monday morning.
    Once downgraded, they will then have to opt back into receiving Fast ring builds of Windows 10 using the Windows Insider Program app. Starting Tuesday, theyll be able to download the next version of the update.
    However, those users who re-install Windows Phone 8.1 Monday morning should hold off on opting back in to the Windows Insider Program, just so they dont get put back on the build they just uninstalled.
    The new build will replace build 10080, which was released to members of the Windows Insider Program a month ago. Its not yet clear what new features will be coming with the update, but Aul called it considerably better than its predecessor.

    Thousands of improvements have gone into code between the two builds, he tweeted.
    When asked if the build was stable enough for daily use, Aul said that depends on a users tolerance for bugs, but that the build is the one he uses daily.

    People who dont want to go through the hassle of downgrading and then re-upgrading will get brought along with the next build of Microsofts mobile operating system that the company releases publicly. According to Aul, the bug in 10136 that prevents upgrading from 10080 will be fixed in later builds, and people who have the current build installed will be able to jump up to the next version available.

    The thing that struck me most actually was the use of WXM. Never saw it before, but it seems cool. Maybe I'll use that.

    Color me excited, can't wait to get another taste at what they're cooking up.

    When I wrote it, it was completely by accident and then I thought, "why not?" Maybe it could be a new thing that has its roots on Windows Central. :)
