    Happy Easter!

    Yesterday I kept checking if Upgrade Advisor would work: No dice. But in the evening the Windows Insider finally kicked in, and I was able to install WM10 on Release Preview Ring. So my 640 is now running WM10 again. Currently in the process of installing AU.

    I did check to see if Upgrade Advisor was available in the store, and it wasn't. So I think it has been removed from the WM10 store, but still available on 8.1 store.
    Let's hope it is just blocked for now, or that WDRT comes with WM10 upgrade, so that supported phones can still upgrade to WM10 in the future if we ever need to do a reroll.

    No. Microsoft will not update packages available on Azure repository servers for older devices.

    It would be better if we were informed as to what is going on by Microsoft.

    We have been informed. They have been informing us for a long time by showing us there was no future. W10M is dead. Go to Donna Sarkar's twitter. The upgrade advisor has been stopped. Insider builds are limited to certain phones. Windows on Arm is next. But maybe we can all get yelled at some more for not wanting to support a new Windows Phone on a dead platform.

    I just downloaded Windows Insider again, but haven't tried it yet. I guess release preview wouldn't be bad. Back to square one!

    From last night (Central time US), I have not been unable to upgrade my L830 via Upgrade Advisor and also my L1020 via Windows Insider to W10M. I can confirm that both phones were eligible in the past. Looks like MS decided to pull support without announcing this in advance. They clearly communicate EOL dates on PC (Windows XP, Vista, 7), however, it seems they do not feel the need to give the same courtesy to Windows Mobile users.

    Regardless of their reasoning, this is not a good business practice towards one's customer base. As much as I love the Windows Ecosystem, a Nokia flagship on Android is looking like a more viable option every day. At least HMD & Nokia appear interested in appeasing their customer base as has been demonstrated by their communication and marketing. I honestly cannot say the same for MS.

    Lumia 1020 hasn't been w10m eligible phone, though 830 has. 1020 only had w10m through insider.

    Bit I agree with you regarding Microsoft. It has been two days since Upgrade Advisor stopped working, and they still haven't given any explanation.

    Now there are reports of OneNote on 8.1 not syncing.

    There is a thread on WC forum and lots of complaints in MS community forum about this

    Is he on 8.1 ?
    Multiple problems popping up !
    I wonder what the next one will be .

    Yes, that's his phone for business, so I haven't upgraded his phone to w10m, as I wanted him to have zero issues. Still, this isn't much a problem for him, as he doesn't use OneNote on any other device. He didn't even note the sync issue. Though this issue doesn't concern me much, it's going to be solved soon, but I'm more interested what's gonna be with this Upgrade Advisor not finding any w10m builds. I've tweeted to Dona if she knows something about that. I know it's not insider related issue, but hopefully we will get an answer.

    Yes, I did mention the 1020 via Windows Insider. I wish I never reverted back to 8.1 for purposes of nostalgia. At the very least, MS could have made an announcement that they were going to change the ability of devices to install W10M production/insider builds.

    Sorry, I've missed that.๐Ÿ˜Š Still, it should be possible to get this Lumia 1020 to w10m, but by changing the registry.

    Just to drop here, and say that my friend still hasn't found the time to try Upgrade Advisor with his phone, but I'm sure you don't actually need the information about that, since now we're all sure that Upgrade Advisor works again.
