    I had stopped Insider builds after .12 but got the .124 update last night on my x3.

    Frank
    Yes, because .124 is for production, .16 is for Insider rings. It seems that .124 is actually ".12.4" and therefore somewhat older than .16

    Hi,
    Did anybody actually install build .124 and then switch to fast ring and install .16?

    This is the only way we can be sure .124 is old than .16

    I am wondering what the difference is between the two. It's probably negligible really.

    Looking at the builds of 15254 on Buildfeed it is now certain that the "lower" sub builds are for production users while the higher sub builds are on a different feature2 branch.
    What's the reason for the Insider program if you only test cumulative updates?

    Would this reasoning from MS be their way of quietly removing mobile from the Insider program, like WalkingCat said?

    Part of me still wants to try Fast ring on my Elite X3 for some reason though. Just because that may be the only real way to see changes.

    I don't think there will be any changes. Just security patches and bug fixes.

    According to ONMSFT, the Windows 10 SDK no longer mentions mobile now. I guess we just have to wait for the official announcement that mobiles are no longer in the Insider program that MS will not announce.

    An official announcement by MS? Hahahaha

    Soon WPInternals 2.2 will drop and I hope that we will be able to install Andromedia/Windows Core OS on our phones

    It seems like this thread has just the two of us here. Are you still on the fast ring? Do you still even use a Windows phone, if I may ask?

    I will use my 950 till it falls apart. I'm not relying on any apps (except the ones who come with the OS) and I don't throw things away that are working (you know, because of the environment). I'm good for now you know
    So it's another 2 or 3 years with my trusted 950 and then I have to evaluate the situation again. In the meantime I hope that some handy hackers will be able to create Windows Core OS ROMs for the Lumias.

    Nothing wrong with that, I admire you! Hope it lasts. Do you have an extra battery or 2?

    make that 4!

    Still limping along with my 950XL as my daily driver...I too am hoping to hold out until the new mobile device is available. I have been experiencing a lot of shut down crashes with this build: 15254.16 (mostly when using the camera).

    You sound exactly like me and my reason for sticking with W10M. Thank you too.

    Hi loyalists! Posting here even though I am now longer an Insider. I have actually switched back to my 950XL DS for the past 2 weeks. I bought a Mugen Power 9300mah battery/back for the phone and put it back into service. Almost immediately, I had Bluetooth issues and had to do a hard reset to fix. After the hard reset, I lost the CraveTV app (disappeared from the Store) and I discovered the NY Times and Starbucks apps no longer function.

    However, I have found that mobile websites are OK substitutes in most cases (although they don't tend to keep you logged in as well). As a bonus, I can use Crave TV through Edge (in desktop mode and with a little fiddling), so I have that and Netflix for video.

    But the 9300mah battery is amazing. Yes, the phone looks funny, is heavier and cases don't fit but having that kind of battery life papers over a LOT of cracks with apps and OS. I can use the phone as much as I want, doing whatever I want, all day without ever having to worry about charge.

    Mugen makes big batteries/custom backs for lots of Android phones with removeable batteries, too. If I ever go with Android permanently, I will buy a used LG V20 or Galaxy Note 4 or some such and put one of these honking big batteries in it.

    Count another masochist in. I am on a L1020 posing as a 950 and in the "Fast" ring.

    Not that there is anything new to tell but at least MS knows that we exist. Someone bored with nothing else to do in their office may take pity on us and throw us a bone. :)

    Firstly, happy new Year @Kerry2112 and @mtf1380.
    @Ektalog, I know what you mean. I might just switch to the Fast Ring on my X3, 'just because'. At least that way I might get something new at some point.
