    Windows 10 PC and Mobile preview build 14915 released for Fast ring Insiders | Windows Central

    https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexp...RiF2jrJDUlc.97

    [S]This build and version is the latest Redstone 2 build in testing for Insiders on the Fast Ring.[/S] This Build is no longer current.

    Issues? Bugs? Solutions? For all things build 14915, discuss it here.

    [NOTE]Tip: Check out this thread before posting
    http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...ml#post3467172[/NOTE]
    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 Windows Device 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 Windows Device 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."
    [/INFO]

    Improvements and fixes for Mobile

    • We fixed the issue causing apps to get stuck in a pending state if you move apps between a SD card and internal storage (either direction).
    • We fixed the issue causing Cortana's text to speech capabilities to not work. Cortana should be able to read text messages out loud for you, tell jokes, sing, or give verbal prompts as expected.
    • Changing functionality via Settings > Update & security > Windows Insider Program such as your ring settings should now work again on this build. For more information – see this forum post.
    • We fixed a compatibility issue from a recent platform change that causes apps such as Yahoo Mail, Trivia Crack, Google and the Skype Translator Preview app to crash.
    • We made a number of improvements to translations, including fixing an issue with Store app install notifications, where the wrong verb was used in German when letting you know to check out the app.
    • We have updated "You need to fix your MSA" notification toast logic, so it will no longer notify you multiple times in quick succession.
    • We fixed an issue where examining Microsoft Edge's advanced settings would result in subsequent downloads in Edge saving to the default locations, rather the preferred locations set under Settings > System > Storage.
    • We fixed an issue for Continuum-capable devices that could result in being temporarily unable to connect to a previously paired Windows 10 PC.
    • We have updated the settings for sounds so that .mp3 or .wma files downloaded straight from OneDrive or copied from File Explorer to the phone's Ringtones folder will now display automatically in the list of available sounds for ringtones, alarms and notifications.

    For what it's worth:

    The cover I was using split the other day, and I had to go back to an older cover; this one has the side buttons covered, and as a result, makes it hard to identify the power button. BUT, with DTTW, and DTTS (using the navbar), I don't need to find the power button very often. Makes is a pleasure: )

    Like I said: "for what it's worth":^)

    So should I take the plunge and jump back on the Fast Ring? Or is it still too buggy? I'll be watching this thread with interest over the next couple of days.

    (Who am I kidding? I'll probably install it tonight...)

    FYI: no know issues, so far, on this build.

    I believe this added feature was included with a Firmware Update. (FW ver: 01078.00053.16236.35006) and may? not be available to ALL models?

    what firmware version are you on? what model do you have?

    Thanks for the help.

    My firmware is : 01078.00038.16025.39013

    How does the firmware get upgraded ? Wireless or is it a bigger job ?

    Sorry for the questions but i am new to the 950xl. Almost had it a month and I love it. I came from my old 925.

    it should give you some direction, its been so long ago, I forget how to initiate the FW Update; I think I went here to kick start the process:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...setting_client

    but, read the 1st tread to confirm. If you get done reading that tread and run into doubts, let us know and I for one will try and do a little more digging:)

    I did not move from 38%, so I did a shut down (power button, until vibrate, then slide down) > WAIT for the "Goodbye" splash screen to disappear > I gave it a few minutes after that and then restarted. Now it is installing.

    Update: now it is showing "Downloading Update", not installing; but moving quickly for now, hope it doesn't get stuck at 38% again?

    Update #2: Installing, and at 89% ;)

    I know that your FW version does not have the DTTW, and you will need to update it, to get it. you say you have a 950XL?

    read this tread also:

    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/m...6c04fb?page=23

    It appears that others are waiting for the FW update (mostly UK), in the tread, they make a reference to a tread by Pepperdot: http://forums.windowscentral.com/mic...tm#post3519666 - you can read this and elect to try it (I know Pepperdot is out to help, so its good info). but if it me, DTTW is not THAT important and I would wait for an OTA update.
