    New build 14977 out. https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexp...rcyPAqCxqzO.97

    I thought there was a new system of updates that made them smaller so you could download over a data connection if you wanted. I tried but it told me it was too big and I would have to use wifi. Oh well, I'll wait until I get home this evening...
    I'll have to go to McDonalds and use their 2bar wifi - CWAP!!!!!!

    EDIT>>> Holy WTF ???? 5.10 gigs???

    IT IS small Kerry - smallest I've ever had.

    EDIT>>> Its weird - when the update first presented itself it DID say 5.1g but it let me go ahead and dl. But it was like a 12 minute dl.

    Dayum... I must have had good atmospherics between me and the tower. *** the leaves are coming down my signal is starting to make it THROUGH the trees instead of having to go over. Laugh, but its true. I've been on this spot for 20.5 years in the middle of 300 acres of woods and its just now dawning on me that enough leaves are down. There's plenty more though. So my signal with Verizon should improve for another week or two. Happens every year and its the ONLY thing I like about winter.

    I had a LOT of problems with this dl. Even after I was home on wifi, it kept telling me I had to wait until I was on wifi to dl. I finally had to reboot the phone. Even after that, I got errors on the first couple of attempts. Finally it worked. Build itself seems fine for me thus far.

    Took 24 minutes to install, 12% of battery on my Lumia 950 XL DS.

    Voice Recorder still isn't letting me record calls. (shows no compatible apps under phone settings for call recording)

    This was the same under the last build.

    So far the only performance issue I've noticed is the screen is stuttering when scrolling. But the really big problem that has returned is my phone is on fire again. It's so hot, I don't want to touch the screen. Nokia Lumia 1520

    Pressing the camera button unlocks the device properly now, but there are still times when pressing the unlock button, the lock screen appears but the screen is unresponsive, you have to lock and then unlock it again, then it responds to touch normally. Performance was not good immediately after installation (even with no apps downloading), but it seems normal again now.

    Man 14965 (for me slow ring) on my 950 has been nothing but issues. Worst insider build I've gotten since I've been on it (since last spring on a 640 and before that on my 920). Cortana didn't want to reengage at first, had to change the language to English (UK) then back to get her to acknowledge "hey cortana". I'm having random lock ups, some of which recover, others do not. Microphone symbol for speech to text entry locks up 950 100% of the time where I need to do a power button soft reset. Oddly enough, within a day of getting this build I got two feedback notifications, one about battery, one about performance. I don't get those with every build it seems.

    I think the comment was that the current thread now refers to the build that's in the slow ring, so if you replace the word 'fast' by 'slow' in the current thread title, that would help. Thanks in advance!

    Still running this build on my 950XL DS. It mostly runs OK, but yesterday I had many apps crashing in the background, and the task switcher would show three apps at most.

    I've also run into the 'stuck mail live tile' where the tile keeps showing 2 unread emails even after I open and close the mail app. Other than that it mostly seems stable.

    I am on the slow ring with the 950xl and this build is the worst insider build I have ever used. It is worse than the ones earlier this spring.

    It has frequent screen locks which either fix themselves, require a soft reset, or, 6 times now, removing the battery. These happen on any app and along with the fact the phone slows down and starts forgetting apps quicker the longer it is on points to memory leaks being the culprit.

    It has broken some apps that haven't even been updated since before this build. For example, mytube audio playback is broken now and it hasnt been updated since the beginning of November. The build also occasionally puts an installed app as pending and has it stick like that for hours forcing you to uninstall it and reinstall to actually use it.

    I know this is the kind of thing that comes with an insider preview program but I went from a phone that would only restart when a phone update happened to one that requires two a day or it will force one anyway and am quite irritated at both this and the appearance of talking to a wall in the feedback app.

    Then don't be on the slow or fast ring. Never a good idea to use your daily device in Windows insider when it comes to using one phone or if you need functions to work at all times. Get a second windows phone to do all the testing you heart desires. I have a Lumia 640 for testing out the fast ring. I don't use my Lumia 950 for OS testing. Especially when I need my phone to work in case I get a txt for meetings an such. Or anything important. Or a call. That just my two cents. No offense intended to anyone. :)
    I have a 950DS and a 950XL DS and usually don't run the same release on both at the same time, but I find that the device without the sim card and not being used full time usually runs great. Having the phone fully functional brings out faults that you wouldn't experience otherwise and this I can say with a lot of experience.

    I know that and I do have an old device for fast ring testing (a 2 year old 830) though this issue never came up on that phone probably for the lack of use as well. I also have a cheap phone at home just for calls and texts.

    I'm just complaining about this build which is the reason for this thread. Anyway, this is the first slow ring build of Redstone 2 anyway so issues are both expected and shouldn't persist that long.

    The build also occasionally puts an installed app as pending and has it stick like that for hours forcing you to uninstall it and reinstall to actually use it.
    I had this too and I found the reason:

    When I installed the new build, after reboot my "SD card was broken, need repair". This is an old nonsense since WP8: the SD card is perfect which I tested with a computer.

    But WM10 needs to "repair" the SD card which results in a 30 minutes file system check. In the meanwhile, all apps which are supposed to be on SD card, get upgraded to internal memory. After the SD card comes back, Windows thinks the app should be on SD card, but in reality is internal. Then the whole thing is "pending" forever. Because their "clever" programmers did not think about that.

    You have to delete the app and reinstall. No other solution.

    With all such cr*p, I came to the insight that apps on SD cards are evil. Windows just cannot handle it, even if it should not be any problem. I moved most apps now internal, and only keep those apps on SD cards which seem to work well and not cause problems. These are mostly apps which I don't use often.
    I'm still testing, but I believe the cr*p with "live tiles not updating" is also connected with apps on SD card.
