    It is recommended to have apps loaded on device, and not on SD Card...sorry!
    Thanks for replying. Yes, that makes sense really and I have noticed the phone performs better now with all apps internally too. When they were on the SD card Store would take a while to load all apps if I wanted to check for updates and some apps would not even open, such as Facebook.

    Thanks again!

    Facebook works but stopped completely syncing with People and Calendar.

    After a HR I noticed FB app is completely different from the previous (I got another lumia but in Production Redstone). Worst design, slower, little icon

    Which version of Win10M would be flashed to a L950 if I were to use WDRT today?

    Thank you. Are there any major differences? Or are most differences quite small? Having used Redstone for ages, I'm not sure what's in Threshold and what isn't anymore. Also, will a backup made on the latest build of Redstone restore to a phone running Threshold?

    I've always found that best with sd cards. SD cards I use strictly for Music, Docs, Photos, misc. files, etc. Nothing that has 'settings'. Just my 2 cents.

    Yep, I remember I was updating from some version of 10586 and never expecting it wound up on the Redstone Branch. Sorry, Speccy I can't remember any of the specifics of the upgrade so far as improvements go, but I "DO" remember "NOT" being displeased.

    I agree... But that is quickly rendering 8GB internal as obsolete. Shame that.

    THAT'S true. I hadn't thought of THAT. Man, could that sd card use concept possibly hold true when the internal is THAT large?
    Well, it might be useful just as a "test procedure"

    My daily is a 1520.3 so no worries there.

    My backup is an 8GB storage Moly W5. Needless to say I run a "lite" version in terms of app selection.

    I see your point. Just looked at the W5, man for the price, THAT's a cool little backup.

    I went there and read the whole review. And perused the rest of the thread. WOW!

    Now I gotta digest it all. I know, 3 Cheeseburgers would help!

    No I've never needed to do that. No Hard Resets and no WDRT recoveries since I've been on Redstone. Just Soft Resets here and there.

    Why would you want to do that? Whatever is forcing you to consider a jump back to Threshold, you could possibly transfer whatever coruptedness right along in the Restore (possibly). "I" wouldn't take that chance.

    I'd leave Threshold 'clean' re-install all the apps I absolutely need, like Domino's, make sure your apps are runnin' ok for maybe 3 days - then jump right back on 14915.1000.

    Sure it's a pain, but why suffer the pain and do it half as_ed? That's my 2 pennys' worth.

    The Dominos app is being withdrawn in the UK, a shame as that's a shining example of an app done right on Windows phones.

    With regard to the other query I had, the reason for wanting to restore a backup is to save time, re-installing everything from scratch will take many hours. The main issues I have are with the in-built apps, so a restore in this case is a risk I'm willing to take. The main issues I have concern sharing pictures via Outlook, something I do all the time at work, on this latest build this basic function fails often, as does trying to share photos via WhatsApp. The other issue I have is that sometimes I take a picture and cannot even get to the point of sharing it as it won't open the picture and just says try again later. This issue cannot be cleared without a reboot.

    I might hold on for another week or so to see if the next build is any better in this respect.

    You had the old version of FB (built by Microsoft). It stopped syncing because MS removed the app and support for the app since Facebook published the first party app.
    IMO the new app is good regarding features and settings, but is very slow and sluggish. I hope an update will be released sood to solve that.

    On my L950 single sim the first boot of facebook app takes up to 20 second and sometimes more. It is really annoing. The same goes for FB messenger (also first party app from Facebook)

    SAD

    There'are the only apps I see on Store, there's anymore. I'm using the Facebook produced app, not MS apps. And they don0t work anymore since days

    My 520 uses old MS app and syncs flawlessy. Wish I could extract the xap

    Speccy, I do understand your points. It's 'your' choice. I stand on what I said. BTW in general, Best Practice is a clean install with NO Restores. BUT again, its your choice. I DO wish you good luck with it.

    Maurizio, I'm not sure if I understand correctly , but if I go to the ms apps "web site" at the MS store they have a LOT of MS Facebook apps for syncing this and syncing that. And SOME for phones only, like THIS MS FACEBOOK APP. I hope...

    That's explains why that's hidden in Store. Simply says "This app doesn't work on your device" and in WebStore the tab Install is missing.
    That' would be nice downlaod it as xap

    I have Redstaone 2 build 14915.1000 installed on my Lumia 950 XL, but I want to roll back to the latest Redstone 1 build, because I experience random freezes and sometimes my screen won't turn on, only the IR light for iris scan is activated.

    But when I go to the Windows Device Recovery Tool 3.10.24401 the OS version available is 10586.13169 and that is the Threshold branch, if I recall correctly. I remember something with the backup format being changed and that is was not recommended to roll back from Redstone 1 or 2 to a TH build because this would corrupt my back up and things will go bad.

    Is there a way to get back to RS1 safely using backups to restore my phone or is my safest bet to wait until Microsoft load up the Anniversary update to the WDRT servers?

    Why not use WDRT to get TH2, then OTA to RS1 > Factory Reset and restore backup?
