Earlier, we reported that some users are seeing Update 2 on their phones and not getting Windows 10. Microsoft has started a thread in their support forums to try and figure out why. However, for Lumia 930 users, it looks like you can just upgrade to Update 2 and not get Windows 10.
Is that a good thing or bad? Update 2 is actually a very nice update with a new layout in Settings that is clearly more organized with jump lists and a search tool. There are also some other minor cosmetic changes, like the 'All apps' with the arrow near the bottom of the Start screen (before it was just an arrow).
Presumably, you will also get the new Bluetooth stack that supports Bluetooth keyboards. We demonstrated this new feature earlier this week on the new Lumia 640.
To get Update 2, all users need to do is download the Windows Insider app and sign up for the Fast Track. The phone will check for an update and download the new bits. Windows 10 will not be installed. The build number is 15116.
For Lumia Icon (Lumia 929) owners, this trick evidently does not work, as we could not get it to do anything on our in-house device.
Should you install this?
This is an unsupported update, and we cannot guarantee your phone will not suffer some unforeseen consequences. Please do this at your own risk and perform a backup first! We also do not know how long this 'trick' will last, so consider your options wisely!
Has this worked with any other phones like the HTC One? Let us know below in comments!
