    I've currently got a Lumia 925 that I successfully sidedloaded Windows 10M 10.0.10586.107 to. It's been running fairly well for a month, well enough for me to replace the glass (original screen was cracked) and battery and keep it flying so to speak.

    I was interested in updating the version of Windows 10M on there, and looked at the following website...

    https://nokiapoweruser.com/hack-to-g...-on-any-lumia/

    I was going to try and use the various registry hacks mentioned to try and change the model of the phone to the 950 XL and get the latest version of the OS off the insider slow ring.

    Unfortunately with vcREG and Interop Tools installed on the phone I can read, but not write to the various registry entries mentioned on that website.

    Any recommendations on how I can get it to save the values? I'm getting a Debug Write Error from Interop.

    Don't update your 925 to CU or FCU because maps won't work. Its better if you stick to Anniversary Update(1607) latest update is 10.0.14393.2551. I am also using the same phone. You can also spoof it as Lumia 830 which is only supported till Anniversary Update.

    Good advice but how can it be done if the registry values cannot be written and saved?

    The method which OP has been following is too complicated and way too unnecessary. Just follow this post on WindowsCentral

    forums.windowscentral.com/windows-10-mobile/457217-tutorial-how-run-creators-update-your-older-lumia-device.html

    with this you'll be able to edit all the registry values.

    Thanks, this seems to have worked perfectly and I'm downloading 10.0.14393.1066 without first having activated the Windows Insider Fast ring. Let's see how stable this is, I figure I can always activate that later.

    I had downloaded interop from the windows store and for whatever reason that didn't work. But I reset the phone and copied everything you recommended (the ARM folder dependencies and the TH2 version of interop) and the registry editing worked perfectly.

    This should keep me chugging along on the Windows platform using this Lumia 925 and my Acer W4 for another year or so.

    I am glad that my suggestion was able to help you.

    And another thing If you care about maps on Lumia 925 then don't update it beyond Anniversary Update.
