don't worry I got it working now just cant use the new Lumia camera now

 

Better roll back because there are some complications like partition stitching,

Might not get next build or updating to next build might corrupt partition setup.

 

Better roll back now to w8 with recover tool for WP.

  • Preview for Developers and Windows Insider are two different programs. The former is more of a "very close to release" version of the OS, where Windows Insider is very early in the development process. It looks like Preview for Developers will continue. (Source)

Couldn't answer any of those questions.

 

I don't use this as a phone, as mentioned above

 

I haven't really messed with it that much. the WP Os is still an eye sore, so I don't use it that much. I think i've played with WP10 like a total of 5 mins.

Microsoft Updates Windows Insider App to Prevent Preview Hack

 

latest update for the Windows Inside application is supposed to prevent users from hacking the Fiddler app and redirect Windows 10 Preview updates to unsupported smartphones.

Owners of unsupported smartphones with microSD cards can still hack the Preview

Obviously, this hasn't been confirmed by Microsoft on the changelog, but there have been many reports claiming that you can no longer hack your way into Microsoft's apps to bring Windows 10 Preview on your smartphone if you update to the latest version of Windows Insider app.

This means that if you haven't already installed Windows 10 for Phone Technical Preview on your unsupported smartphone, but plan on doing it soon, then you shouldn't update your Windows Insider app.

As for when Microsoft will enable access to this version of Windows Phone for additional smartphone models, that's a bit hard to speculate.

According to a post by Gabe Aul, Microsoft is in the midst of testing Windows 10 on a variety of different Lumia handsets. While there isn't an exact date for release, there is still more than likely a week of testing that needs to be performed in order to insure a successful build can be pushed to the expanded list. Although this is not final, Aul and the team intend to push out the Windows 10 build to the devices listed below.

    Lumia 1020
    Lumia 1320
    Lumia 1520
    Lumia 520
    Lumia 525
    Lumia 526
    Lumia 530
    Lumia 530 Dual Sim
    Lumia 535
    Lumia 620
    Lumia 625
    Lumia 630
    Lumia 630 Dual Sim
    Lumia 635
    Lumia 636
    Lumia 638
    Lumia 720
    Lumia 730
    Lumia 730 Dual SIM
    Lumia 735
    Lumia 810
    Lumia 820
    Lumia 822
    Lumia 830
    Lumia 920
    Lumia 925
    Lumia 928
    Lumia ICON
    Microsoft Lumia 430
    Microsoft Lumia 435
    Microsoft Lumia 435 Dual SIM
    Microsoft Lumia 435 Dual SIM DTV
    Microsoft Lumia 532
    Microsoft Lumia 532 Dual SIM
    Microsoft Lumia 640 Dual SIM
    Microsoft Lumia 535 Dual SIM

Naturally, Aul has cautioned that the list above is preliminary and could changed depending on what kinds of bugs might arise out of the testing session

Something is quite messed up with the power usage on the 10 preview though.

 

in the 4 hours since I took mine off charging this morning after it installed tonight, it went down to 10% with barely any actual usage. just laying idle being hot doing who knows what.

After installing the update things get slower than Android phone, battery hog, sim wasnt detected till a hard reset, unfinished crappy apps(outlook,calendar) and settings

 

There wasnt much to see either.. other than Project spartan which takes up a lot of screen for top and bottom bar :/

unforunately, there isn't. I think this is due to phone carriers having different firmware for each device, it would require a ROM of Windows 10 for each supported device on each carrier in the world

i would try the update from a clean 8.1 flash. you can use the software recovery tool to get back on 8/8.1,and then update your way to 10tp

I had another blast at this today and all I did was install the w10 tech preview again (on top of an empty 8.1) then reformatted the phone using the inbuilt tool to get it right back to nothing.

 

Much better!! There are a few obvious glitches in respect to almost every menu option staying open in the background but overall I like it a lot.

 

Very obviously an alpha but it is a good start

Yeah, obviously this is very unstable, but from what I see, I love where this is going.

The data use restriction functions still seem to be absent/limited so I'm back on 8.1

      Yellow Messenger integrates Microsoft Azure cognitive services on its platform
      by Sylvester Addo



      India based conversational AI startup, Yellow Messenger, announced a partnership with Microsoft to build a human-like voice automation platform that can understand and respond based on sentiment, dialect, and workflow.

      This will see Yellow Messenger using Microsoft’s Azure cognitive services; Azure AI Speech Services and Natural Language processing tools to increase the accuracy of its voice bot solutions. Making organizations that use the voice automation platform better understand the intents of their users.

      Azure Cognitive Services is a family of artificial intelligent services that allow systems to see, hear, speak, understand, and interpret human needs using natural methods of communication.

      These cognitive services leveraged in the voice bot solution will make engaging with automated services such as support, sales and commerce feel like a human to human interaction. Instead of an automated to human interaction.

      Commenting on the collaboration Raghu Ravinutala, CEO and Cofounder, Yellow Messenger said:

      Microsoft will team up with Yellow Messenger’s R&D teams to create solutions that help enterprises in various sectors enhance consumer experience automation.

      Microsoft backpedals on Xbox Live Gold pricing, free-to-play games won't require subscription
      by Usama Jawad

      A few hours ago, Microsoft received massive backlash for increasing the price of its Xbox Live Gold program for new customers. It announced that the price of a one-month subscription is increasing by $1 to $10.99, and price of a three-month membership is increasing by $5 to $29.99, and a six-month membership is now $59.99 - which was previously the cost of its annual membership.

      Following feedback from users of the service, Microsoft has now backpedaled on the decision.



      In a statement on the original blog post, the firm has announced that it will not be implementing the new price model, and that the price of Xbox Live Gold membership will remain the same. It stated that:

      A notable change coming to the program is that you will not require a subscription to play free-to-play games like Fortnite or Call of Duty: Warzone. This will make the service more in line with Sony's competing PlayStation Plus program. However, this modification to the program is not immediately available and Microsoft will be working to deliver it "in the coming months".

      When Microsoft announced the new pricing model a few hours ago, many believed that it was designed to push gamers to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which is arguably a better value proposition, but at $14.99/month. However, the price hike was considered to be in bad optics considering that the company is not adding any new features to the service, and free-to-play games still require a premium membership unlike Sony's PlayStation Plus. With the subscription model now reverted to the original and now packing a major improvement, it remains to be seen how the firm will entice users to join the Game Pass Ultimate program.

      Microsoft Teams to be integrated into SAP solutions
      by Paul Hill

      Microsoft has announced that its collaboration tool, Microsoft Teams, will be integrated into SAP’s suite of solutions. Complementing this move, Microsoft and SAP have agreed to accelerate the adoption of SAP S/4HANA on Microsoft Azure.

      With the coronavirus pandemic forcing places of work to close, more people have been forced to work from home. By integrating Microsoft Teams with products like SAP S/4HANA, SAP SuccessFactors, and SAP Customer Experience, the two firms hope that they can boost user productivity and engagement which could help support growth in economies after being hit hard by the virus.

      Commenting on the agreement, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said:

      SAP customers using any of the aforementioned solutions should be able to use the Microsoft Teams integration sometime in the middle of the year, according to Microsoft. With regards to the two companies’ plan to accelerate the integration of SAP S/4HANA on Azure, a SAP document says that customers broadly favour Azure as their choice to move on-premise SAP S/4HANA to the cloud.

      The YouTube app for Xbox now supports HDR videos
      by João Carrasqueira

      In the summer of 2016, Microsoft introduced the Xbox One S, bringing support for HDR to the Xbox family for the first time. Now, after four and a half years, Google has implemented HDR video support into the YouTube app on Xbox consoles, as reported by FlatpanelsHD (via Windows Central).

      HDR has become a fairly standard feature in modern TVs and every iteration of the Xbox since 2016 has supported it. YouTube itself also added support for HDR videos later that year, so it's certainly interesting that it took this long for those two things to come together.

      It's not completely clear when the capability was added to the YouTube app, but FlatpanelsHD points out that it wasn't available on the Xbox Series X back in December. The report confirms HDR is working on both the Series X and the One S, and there's no reason why it wouldn't also work with the One X and Series S.

      You'll need to make sure you have the latest version of the app for HDR to work, or you can download the app from here if you haven't yet. While HDR support in the YouTube app is good news, it doesn't look like it's working as well as some might hope just yet. The app only supports HDR in videos using Google's VP9, instead of adopting the more modern AV1 format, which has also been backed by Google. Hopefully, a future update will address that issue.

      Microsoft is doubling the price of Xbox Live Gold
      by Rich Woods

      Today, Microsoft announced that it's increasing the price of Xbox Live Gold in a big way. The price of a one-month subscription is increasing by $1 to $10.99, and price of a three-month membership is increasing by $5 to $29.99, and a six-month membership is now $59.99.

      Indeed, $59.99 is the same price that a year of the service used to cost, and for now, you can still get that on Amazon and at other retailers. You'll want to jump on that now though. You can also keep renewing your existing subscription for the same price as before if you have a six-month or annual subscription already.

      Naturally, Microsoft wants gamers to switch to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which was originally meant to combine Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold, and has since added Xbox game streaming and Xbox Game Pass for PC to the value proposition. The company is still offering a deal where it will convert your Xbox Live Gold to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for no charge, up to three years. That means that if you have a year left on your Xbox Live Gold subscription, you can turn that into a year of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (yes, that even works if you buy that one-year subscription linked to above right now).

      Microsoft says that in many markets, the price of Xbox Live Gold hasn't changed in years, and in some, over a decade. Indeed, in the United States, the service has been $59.99 a year for quite some time. Many have speculated that Xbox Live Gold might go away at some point in favor of Game Pass, and this price hike might be another step toward that.

      Editor's note: We've added a note indicating that it's still possible to renew existing six-month or 12-month subscriptions at the previous price. We apologize for this oversight.

      UPDATE: Microsoft has backpedaled on the decision to hike the Gold price.
