Microsoft releases Windows 10 Mobile build 15245 to the Fast ring - here's what's fixed

Today, Microsoft released the first Windows 10 Mobile build to the Fast ring in 16 days, since build 15240 was released. Build 15240 tripled the amount of new features coming in the Fall Creators Update for phones, to a total of three, and it was released to the Slow ring earlier this week.

Unfortunately, there are no new features in build 15245, which is today's Fast ring entry. There are, however, a range of fixes and improvements:

  • This build also includes all the improvements from KB4034674.

  • We fixed an issue where the MTP service would sometimes crash when you disconnected your phone while a file transfer is in progress.

  • We fixed a spin loop that was occasionally triggered by deleting a VPN profile.

  • We fixed an issue where apps which call into the firewall (such as Microsoft Edge) have the potential of becoming deadlocked and the app hangs until you reboot your phone.

  • We fixed an issue in the routing engine used by apps like Maps where the initial direction was always set to North which could result in unnecessary route segments.

  • We fixed an issue where Silverlight apps that use GPS would either not start or crash.

  • We fixed an issue where a non-default Messaging app (e.g. Skype) would crash with an Access Denied error when changing Download messages settings.

  • We fixed an issue where the new Privacy Consent popup would block loading of apps which used the activity detection and pedometer sensors.

  • We fixed an issue where turning on/off Reset Protection could cause the phone to reboot.

It's worth noting that KB4034674 refers to build 15063.540, which was this month's Patch Tuesday update for PCs and phones.

There are no known issues listed, but as with the PC build that was also offered today, that doesn't mean that Microsoft isn't aware of any issues. The company explicitly said that it's not listing them anymore because builds for the Fall Creators Update are being released more frequently.
