    So far, so good. MUCH better with the new firmware and the release .1004
    Edge, Photo, Messaging, Calendar, Word, Excel, everything is working perfectly and
    the most important thing, no freeze yet. Wouhou !

    To help you people, I attached the device info screenshot and a funny bug I have in the Edge settings. ;)

    Will wait a couple of days to see if I'm really reassured with this release. ;)

    They seriously broke Cortana in the last two builds. Cortana no longer announces incoming texts and doesn't give you an opportunity to reply. You can initiate texts, but all you get for incoming texts is the ringtone. They need to fix this fast.

    after me praising the latest build, i now have an issue where the phone gets very hot. pressing the power button doesnt turn on the screen and i have to soft reset it with VOL - and PWR. no idea what triggers is, but happened twice in the car yesterday with BT and wifi disabled. but didnt happen today when BT was enabled - wifi still disabled. hmm maybe ill play with that combo...........

    other than that, it seems to be operating well.

    Ok been running firmware version 2012 for a few days now on my 950 XL. This update has given the best performance boost to my phone and battery life is better. Only concern was my phone being unresponsive on the power button, that requiring a few soft resets and SD card error that required removal and scan on pc to repair. Thanks for the tip Maurizio. One other thing is the alarm not displaying the large cancel or sleep button in the in this firmware hopefully they correct it next update.

    I've rolled my 950 back to the Threshold branch build .107. Found that when the Redstone-based build freezes on the glance screen, the phone doesn't ring on incoming calls.

    Will consider again in a few months, but IMHO as of now this Redstone codebase is for hard-core testers and app devs only.

    I got the firmware update too for the single SIM 950XL and it is far better now. Especially in terms of not running so got or draining the battery.

    Anyone having issues with Quiet Hours not turning on or off automatically in this build? I have to manually turn it on and off now. It seems Cortana forgets.

    quiet hours is fine on mine.

    the build directly before this one it was broken

    i may have turned it off waited 10 seconds and turned it back on again. sometimes you have to do that with some settings.

    i had to do that with all the notifications as nothing was making a sound

    You seem to have to same behavior I had when the phone was at the older firmware.
    Since I got the 16025 installed, the Redstone version is a lot more stable.

    After a week with Redstone and the new firmware, it's a nice release, but not as stable as .107 can be
    but it's a bit faster than .107.

    I had a lot of problem with the GPS apps Sygic, and with the Mobile Data in general when I needed to
    roam (I'm with Videotron and when I need to get on PRTNRT1 network, the roaming option must be On).
    If I needed to turn off the Mobile Data, the phone freezes, needs a hard reboot, same thing if I want to
    get into the SIM settings.

    When I'm on Videotron network and no roaming, everything is fine... go figure... !

    All the other apps are still working properly, but I don't know about Cortana, since I'm not a
    great fan of talking to my phone... ;)

    I can keep this release for now, I don't see any show stopper personally. :)
