    I need to cleanse my 950XL, which would be better: Hard reset, or WDRT?
    I would do hard reset as it re-installs current build, while WDRT will install original W10M first then upgrade to AU and CU. I believe this upgrade process leaves some dirty traces we don't need...

    Should I leave the SD card in, or remove it?
    I remove the SD card when I do it. And since I removed the card it is actually highly recommended to format the card in the phone's storage when reinserting it back.

    Not only your phone is cleansed but your SD card as well.

    This is especially true if you install your apps and games in the SD card (Highly Not Recommended).
    I always install my apps and games in phone storage. I let the SD Card do the storage duties for pictures, music and videos.

    Do you mean how glance screen is working with this build ? - it is working well, even when using a background pic of lockscreen in a glance screen. Well, I prefer just clock and lock screen info on a glance screen with 30 secs timeout, that's enough when taking off from a pocket. It is always on when charging. (950 XL DS)

    Until now no reboots with the current version, and relatively stable.

    Today, after ending a Skype call, the device immediately rebooted. So no hopes to be out of beta. A never ending disaster.

    hmm unfortunately my Glance settings won't even boot up - or rather it opens and instantly closes. The glance screen is on but it so dim that it is unreadable. If I cover the proximity sensor like I was holding to my ear it goes off and then when i uncover it flashes proper brightness for half a second and goes dim again. :-( 950XL DS

    Calm down, man... It's still a fast ring insider build. It's not the final release build yet...

    I think that it could be fixable by hard reset (settings - system - about - reset your phone).

    I ran 15063 for about two weeks, and things seemed to work better as time wore on. Just installed 15063.2 Sunday night, and all seems to be right. HTC One M8.

    Are you sure about that? They have supposedly moved this build to the "slow" and "release preview" rings.

    I am hearing the Mobile version of the Creator's update is delayed until April 25th so I expect we will see a couple more builds until they work out the remaining bugs.

    I installed latest Fast ring build 3 days ago on my 950.
    And WOW!!!! I know it's not yet finished but as far as I'm concerned it's not any near to be ready for mass usage.
    Problems:
    Apps stuck on downloading- nothing to do to stop it or cancel it...
    Keyboard sometimes work and sometimes don't in Edge
    Live tiles (clock and weather, both stock don't work)

    I made a clean install and hard reset my phone after installing. Without backups restore.
    Hope MS will polish it before pushing it out to public. For now, I reverted to P.R. I need usable phone. 😊

    Well, the key pain was time...time to find what was missing; reentering all the usernames and passwords:)

    I compiled info I had gather over time from @PepperdotNet, @Krystianpants, @Shamshi-Adad, @Mark F24, @nikosxri, and a few others that I can not identify.

    Check list: I,

    > took pictures of Start Screen, top-to-bottom (recommended)

    > took pictures of ALL the content in my 'mobile only', note apps ('Highly recommended', this is what got me on my 920 - because a lot of the note apps I used, do not save the content is the case of a reset)

    > took pictures of Settings > System > Storage (for a reference)

    > did a backup through: Settings > Update & security > Backup (to OneDrive)

    > did a backup through: Settings > Extras > contact + message backup

    > took out the Sim and SD cards

    > Plug in 950XL

    > used WDRT: to take me waaaaaaay back a passed build.

    > re-inserted my SIM card

    > used: Settings > Update & security > Phone update to take me as far as it would go on RTM.

    > rejoined Insider Program (fast)

    > used: Settings > Update & security > Phone update to take me as far as it would go on fast (current fast ring)

    > re-inserted my SD card.

    > downloaded the Microsoft 'contact + message backup' App, THEN restored my 'contacts and messages' from my SD card

    > went to the Store App and did a 'Downloads and updates' check

    > went through the App Library to reinstall what I needed.

    > check with the pictures I took of my Start Screen (prior to reset) and compared it to what I got for the library...best I can tell, I only lost the use of one app 'Office Calculator', but found a great w10 substitute.

    > reinstalled 9 emails, and all the other apps that needed usernames and passwords (the most painful of the process, because most are 2-step verification and 3rd party).

    > reset all my settings in the: Settings > Personalization, area

    Note: I checked my: Settings > System > Storage, when all was said and done, I picked up 15.7GB of Device Storage...whoa!

    Latest build had some minor issues, I decided to reset the device, all went wel.. But now I have no pull down menu from the home screen! if I lock the phone and unlock without entering a pin/hello recognition it works, but not from homescreen it doesn't...

    Who has this too?

    It's terrible!!!!

    I really am starting to give up on MS mobile... frustration is not good for me atm... ( although I want them to succeed!! )

    Lumia 950XL Dual-Sim (AT&T) Unlocked

    15063.2 was running fine since I upgraded. However, I noticed my Bluetooth connection to my Suface Pro4 was not working.

    When I tried to add it, I could not.

    So, I did the hard reset (Settings --> About --> Reset your Phone) and restored from a backup.

    Bluetooth pairing worked flawlessly. Phone is running really well.

    1 further question. Why did not you do just "hard reset" ? - why WDRT ?

    1 further question. Why did not you do just "hard reset" ? - why WDRT ?
    Well, I can't really answer that, except to say that I thought the general consensus of the input I reviewed leaned toward WDRT; it wasn't until I had already started the WDRT process, that I saw @maya77 's post #227 ^^^, and had second thought regarding my selection. But, upon further mental debate, I was somewhat comfortable that I did the WDRT route...'THIS TIME', because not having done a hard reset, ever, on this phone (950XL), I wanted to do what I thought was the 'most' through of cleansings. As a matter of fact, because I had committed having a fresh start with the final RS2 build, I wanted to get rid of as much garbage out as possible. I was actually excepting to do a 'Hard Reset' once I hit the latest fast ring build, sort of a double wash, but decided that I will wait until the RTM version hit so I can have as close to an unadulterated look-see as possible.

    My original goal was to get 'Connect' back, and operational...this I was successful doing:) I still have "some" minor hiccups, but all-in-all, the phone is running great, and I'm pretty excided about it:)

    One more footnote: per my storage results (before and after) I was able to remove 15.7GB's of crap.
