    SP4 Fast, Jump Ahead, 950XL Fast Ring; everything else is production ring to avoid device failure when needed for work. The 950XL has seen WDRT a few times but thankfully on Fiber here so that is really easy to get it back online in just an hour or so.

    I'm on the fast ring on all of my Microsoft devices except for Xbox. I like to give Microsoft as much feedback to issues with these builds as much as possible to help expedite these releases. Also hoping that one of these builds finally separates the Edge browser from the operating system in order to compete with Chrome. Mobile insider seems to be a rollercoaster ride when it comes to stability and with every new build I swear that it makes battery usage incrementally worse with every new iteration.

    @Jason Angle I'm on fiber also but it still takes me on average 4 hours every time to get everything synced back to my phone after a hard reset. A bulk of that time is usually due to my app library which I don't even let it download until after the last fast ring update installs. Is there a way to get the latest build via tool recovery?

    Not that I am tracking, I think you get pushed back down to the latest major build and still have to update the months between fixes even if not on Insider. I don't ever restore from Backups, just from experience the Apps act buggy because some of the settings are not backwards compatible to non-insider ring builds. Get to the current ring, remove all the bloatapps I don't use that they put on there anyways. Then I go the Store Library and select my apps and then set it down. It sounds like it would take longer but the times I have done it resulted in a much quicker turnaround doing it manually. Granted most of my stuff is sync'd on Onedrive including Music.
