Problems updating to Windows 10 preview from Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 should be over

As we established during yesterday's rollout of the latest Windows 10 preview for phones, there's first an update to Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 to take place on phones that haven't been running the first build. Unfortunately, after the Update 2 finished installing for many there was no onward route to Windows 10. Now, according to Microsoft's Gabe Aul, things should be fixed and back to normal.

"@GabeAul: If you were stuck on GDR2 and not getting the update to W10 offered, try checking for updates now. We believe it is sorted out."

So there we have it. Go forth and update.

my whatsap no. 876928337

plz help m 

I recently received my Nokia Lumia 630 in the mail today and as I was trying to update it, it lead me to an endless gear screen that just keeps turning while the bar below is not even filling up. I'm not really sure what's happening here and how to actually fix it but I'm guessing that it's not the user's fault since it's an OTA update through the settings. I tried the factory reset (power button + down key and so on) but it doesnt lead me to the lightning screen page.

 It was such a dissappointment owing to a fact that I technically just used the device for only 6 minutes tops. Complete blow out of what would have been a wonderful device and OS. *note: I've read alot of great things about this lumia and windows OS that's why I made the switch. What a waste.

A dissappointed customer here looking for help and to notify microsoft not to send out updates if it doesnt work and fatally leads to a bricked phone tsk tsk tsk

hey i was updating my lumia 535 to windows 10 and it started but then stopped at 45% i checked everything but it didnt start again

 

i am yousing a lumia 525.and i instol app windows insider then instol app 10 but it is not instol so what will be next

 

 

After updated to w10 pre
1. The background program do not close - no program closes with 'back' key. It keeps the tiles open, program running!
2. The battery is drained heavily
3. every program needs closing multiple times, at least three times
4. my L1320 getting heated which was not the case with w8.1 update2
5. browsing for files, say photos or media on SD card has become extremely slow, even crashing some times.
6. every program is starting very slow.
7. Net connection over wifi has become much much better.
8. USB connection is also very fast but blue tooth connection with w10 is fine, with w8 it fails authentication.
9. sensitivity of the screen needed readjustment to at least medium for normal operation,
--- till date this is the status of my lumia1320. Though getting frustrated but not yet going back. Want to test for some more days b4 going back, if necessary at all. Waiting for another update very very soon on w10 pre!

Hi buddy,

              Today morning I update my lumia 525,Lumia denimi to Win10 Tech Priview Everything is working f9 bt still I didn't get my office app any solution plz hlp me..................

hey guys! if anyone reading my comment and has installed WINDOWS 10 in thier WINDOWS PHONES then please I'll say one word only that DO NOT INSTALL windows 10 on your phones because that OS has so many problems and bugs in each n every application. Data connections are set to OFF in the settings menu but are ON sideways. Data Connection can't be turned OFF and WIN 10 OS also sucks up battery's power quicky and this really sucks!

if anyone want to downgrade their WIN 10 OS to their previous WIN 8.1 OS then download LUMIA SOTWARE RECOVERY TOOL. Google it and and you will get that. I am able to downgrade my LUMIA 620 ^_^ and it's working as it used to be. Now it feels better XD.

thanks.

Hi,

 

I installed Windows 10 on my 620 but I was having problems with data connection so I rolled back to 8.1. Now I am again trying to install 10 on my 620 with the insider program but I did not get the update.

Is this normal? How can I get Windows 10 again?

 

Thanks.

Has anyone update to wp10 using data connection rather than wifi? I m stuck on 8.1 gd2, not able to download wp10 using data connection.

My suggest based on my experience using WP 10 TP, don't install it to your daily phone use. My Lumia is 535, I install WP 10 two days ago and I face a lot of annoying bug. However is there any way to stop on OS 8.1 update 2 without onward to WP 10 TP? Please guys give me an answer :)

It would be nice for Microsoft to release 8.1 Update 2 via Preview for Developers for those of us who don't want the Windows 10 Tech Preview.

Still cant update to 10 after two days of trying. 2 hard resets later among other attempts and still no luck...

Please do a quick fix of everything!! Windows 10 is cool yet so much pain in the a**!! Fix the Mobile Data connection then ill rest my case.

What do you expect, is a technical preview which we aren't even meant to have. Is supposed to be reserved for MS developers and had tons of bugs, something we were made aware of. So shut up and deal with it.

I wanted just gdr and I end up getting windows 10 instead on my Lumia 630. Since I don't want to install windows 10, I keep postponing the update everytime I get the install popup. Poor me

Its a two step process.first it updates to 8.1 update 2. Then again you update, this time wp10

But personally speaking, dont go for it yet. Its too buggy

I already tried tp . I'm glad it updated to update 2. There is a bug in 730 in cellular and data connection. After this update I hope it will not bug me.

Will i be able to download it onto my HTC 8x because its says im able and I downloaded the Insider fast update but nothing else happened after

Up to now WP10 TP is totally failed. But will be touch with positive attitude towards. Need an update immediately with corrections.

It will just brick your phone..after i installed the w10 preview my phone got bricked...good thing there is recovery tool

I request to all plz stop download windows 10 coz their are lots of problems. I was updated 10 on my Lumia 1520, its not complete version. Now, I reinstall Lumia denim 8.1.

Yaa same problem in Lumia 1520 what can we do reset the devise so problem and install agian all application one by one. Wait and watch new update

As a software engineer, I feel that win 10 for phone has a long way to go to make it even comparable to win 8.1. More worrisome is that there are some many UI issues which were present in the 1st preview and are not addressed at all, eg thin and small font. I guess this is their design guideline for new pages now.

I wonder when the star appeal of Joe Belfiore finally wears off. Been downhill for ages but management gets promotions in stead of boot, makes no sense whatsoever.

Bought a 928 to try out W10. Too buggy for DD but I now remember why I liked my 928 so much! Will roll back to W8.2 and stay there with it until W10 is useable!

I'm also a 1320 user.. I was updated to gdr2 and then after when I started updating the updates are stuck at 5%.. Its more than an hour and its still 5%

Guys plz help me..... I Installed WP10 TP and Am unable to launch Here drive+ app... I reinstalled the app but its not launching at all...

If WP8.1 Update 2 is a stable release and it seems that it is, they should offer it outside of the insider program or at least through the preview program that has more subscribers.

Downloaded GDR2 and stopped there.
Win 10 is downloaded but I didn't install it.
That data toggle and office issue ...
Once the new office build is available I will install win 10.

i wanted to install GDR2 on my 1520 this way. but it downloaded win 10 straight, without gdr2...
damn, now i get the win 10 update-ready message every few hours...
anyone know how to get gdr2 or disable the win 10 update?

I tried using Windows 10 yesterday but reverted to WP8.1 today.. Is it possible that I update to GDR2 using Insider app but not update to Windows 10

I did so on my L1520.
You will have a prompt before the download telling you which version you are downloading.
If its 8.10.15116 so its GDR2.
If its 10.0.12534 so its win 10 TP.

@summer600 I got the same crappy update. The only change I have seen is that the software update automatically checks updates every hour or so

Gdr2 update not downloading for me on 930, in The Netherlands. Did get ons update after switching to fast but still on 14219

Windows 10 fully sucks my lumia 1320 am facing lots of problems still windows has to fix bugs on this technical preview update
After updating this device has stoped recognizing network

my phone is lumia 625 when i am updating my phone to denim update it is showing update button when i pressed it it is switching off and getting spinning gears from here it is stucking i mean that the bar is not filling with white colour...... please help me to solve this. it is urgent. i also tried hard reset many times still same problem.

my phone has updated but that was not windows 10 :( i m too much excited for windows 10 m to much sad for that :( plzz do something i have HTC 8X

Hi everyone I have Lumia 535 and I have updated to windows 10 and it is awful. I couldn't stand it for one day as absolutely nothing is working. They spoiled the os, they should have added the start menu background and the setting rearrangement but they spoiled it. I do not want to rush into conclusions but I will wait for more working version.

Well, i guess i am lucky. Apart from feedback app crashing and some minor bug, all works fine. Best way to install, i downloaded the updated and started the installation, then slept the night and woke up windows 10 running flawlessly(so to say). Probably took 3-4 hours to install but eh.

Do not install this piece of shit on your phone if you still want to use it! The back button doesn't work anymore so as the taskview so you will need to restart your phone each time you want to go to start. The new keyboard it's much smaller and it is difficult to use.the phone blocks randomly so as the keyboard. I have windows 10 from 10 minutes and i've found at least 30 stupid bugs. I undrstand that this is a preview but it is very far away to be decent. Microsoft is going back rather then forward.

Buna extermia! I have a lumia 1520. Don't install it! I've erased after 30 minutes of struggling with my phone! I didn't make a recent back up so I had to rearrange everything. I am still working on that. After this I've changed also my PC from fast to slow updates.

So I decided to risk it with the hope of getting Windows Phone 8.1 update 2 on my L1520, and then stop the installation process before Windows 10 for Phones installed.  That didnt happen, because it jumped straight to Windows 10.

While it was finalising the installation, I left the phone.  I then came back to it, and I have no power! The phone will not turn on.

I thought as worse case scenario I could just have a quick test of Windows 10 and rollback.  Now I am not sure what I can do if the phone wont even turn back on!

 

EDIT: Pressing and holding power button and volume-down buttons did the trick.  Phew!

Updated 1020 , stopped it at GDR2. Updated two 920s. One that was uses way less went straight to 10 the other went to GDR2 stopped updating there (does offer 10 by turned off the autodownload) . Additional info the 920 that went direct to 10 used a different daily live account but used the same one for the insider app on all three.

Also I picked fast, once I did, (on one phone) it only has the fast option on all three now.

Didn't realize only the phones that didn't have update 1 were the only ones getting GDR2. Updated my 1520 to Windows phone 10 and quickly restored it to 8.1..
Windows phone 10 is making me afraid of the future..

I tried to get GDR2 on my 920 with update 1 and without it, both times it went straight to 10. WI gave me update 1 then 10.

I wish it did stop at GDR2 and didn't proceed to Windows 10

i never seen something as buggy as this release

i understand it is still in preview and bugs are to be expected , but there are too much "CLEAR" bugs with few worthy features

they must at least list this bugs thus we can choose to or to not try it

I was hoping for gdr2, but it wasn't offered for my 920. is gdr2 not going to be available for the 920? or is it because at&t hasn't rolled out denim?

My 925 went straight from 8.1.1 to 10 Tech Preview, so not all devices running 8.1 needed GDR 2 to get the 10 Tech Preview.

In what way is it crap. It's working fine for me & the Flight mode & Cell data bug goes away if you hard reset after updating, also the battery drain issue is bon existent as my 925 only dropped 10% over night where on 8.1 it could drop by as much as 11%. Excessive battery drain is down to all the playing with it more than usual & sending a crap tonne of feedback.

I don't know about ur phn condition, but on my cell it's quite buggy, more than i expected. Start screen is gone, No tile is there and problem is that u can't even pin them again, pin to start is faded. Only custom win10 wallpaper behind. You have to swipe right to choose apps from list. Whatsapp isn't showing any coming msgs notification, always gives error that detected some error, need for reboot, even after i rebooted it 100 times. :/ UI is buggy, and none of my apps working properly. *they work but crashes or become irresponsive.
I believe tp is meant to have some buggs but atleast little basic functionality. +L720

The only App I'm having issues with is Tweetium thinking that I'm trying to run the trial version which isn't compatible with Win 10 TP, other than that everything is running fine. But the L925 is a 1GB device, if you're using a 512MB device that could be causing the problems. whatsapp is also working as it should for me.

I updated my lumia 620 to Win10 TP. I can't access phone's settings. I didn't find settings anywhere in my phone. It's also not there in apps list. Everything working good but Start Screen background and tiles system didn't change. Please help i can't open settings in my phone.

my phone is lumia 625 when i am updating my phone to denim update it is showing update button when i pressed it it is switching off and getting spinning gears from here it is stucking i mean that the bar is not filling with white colour...... please help me to solve this. it is urgent.

Yesterday I got Update 2. After that Windows Insider App notified me again for available update. I moved to Settings and checked my Phone Update, it's showing, an update is available. Windows 10 update.

Having tried out Win10 on my 1020, I'm not liking what MS has done with it so far.. Rolled back to Denim/8.1 GDR1 via Cyan/8.1 as the recovery tool servers don't seem to have the Denim/8.1 GDR1 factory image.

Still error occurs... After. 58% download ...its automatically check for updates n download again from first..

When I did my 920, it took like 4-5 attempts before it went all the way through. I did superstitious things like delete temp files and reboot a couple times. I even tried a different wifi network.

I dint get the update from Insider .. When I checked for updates m getting the option to update WINDOWS 10 TP.. IS THAT FINE??

my phone is lumia 625 when i am updating my phone to denim update it is showing update button when i pressed it it is switching off and getting spinning gears from here it is stucking i mean that the bar is not filling with white colour...... please help me to solve this. it is urgent. i also tried hard reset many times still same problem.

Why do we need to connect to Wi-Fi ti download the update? Why ain't cellular data enough? Cellular data is what is available for me.

I agree with you. MS needs to rectify this issue as not every one has access to wifi. The other option is to also allow updating and installing of phone updates and apps by usb connection via computer.

i install windows 10 on nokia lumia 1020 . it dont shows any thing . no GUI . working is well , it only shows batery icon , network , only ,,, there is nothing else ,, help me plzzzzzzzz , i recieve phone . i connect it with pc . it works , but phone has no GUI

All that waiting for nothing really, I mean even if you are not puting it on a phone that is your daily driver it's still not worth it. If your phone falls asleep the only way to get back in is to hard reboot, It' laggier than any Andriod ever made, you can't control your data connection and it doesn't see your sims card so forget about making calls or making texts. Long story short it's useless.

 

installed windows 10 for phones & it couldn't detect the sim card...downloaded the windows recovery tool software & tried to go back to 8.1....my phone now won't turn on ..seems my 520 has become a brick...pc can't detect phone either...any helpful suggestions?

 

Does your battery come out? I've never had a 520 so I'm not user if the battery is removable but if it is take it out also take out your SD card and SIMS if you have them and hold the power buttton down for a few minutes, release the power button and put it back together.

Nope. I won't update to the WP10 preview build. No way. I'll just stick to WP8.1 Update 2. So far I'm just not feeling it for WP10.

I stopped updating my phone using the Preview for Developers tool when I heard that an update caused certain Samsung ATIV S phones to go into a boot loop. I haven't heard any more about it and I'm still waiting for the apparent firmware update to fix the camera issues, etc. While I would love to upgrade to Windows 10 for Phones, I'm extremely reluctant to do so as I dont want to brick my phone. Without a firmware update and the uncertainty of exactly where my old firmware Samsung ATIV S phone now sits in the whole Windows Phone update scene, it would be illogical to attempt an upgrade at any stage - so I guess its WP 8.1 with a faulty camera for me for the foreseeable future :-(

thx for Information. I've got Booting loop in Preview Developer Updates, but there was be released a update to fix that. But since then were no Updates released for Ativ S with Preview for Developers App.

I had the boot-loop issue, too. I couldn't even get a hard reset working afterwards. I eventually had to flash the ROM. That's a learning experience in itself, but I did manage to get my phone working again.

Lumia 830 i got windows 10 preview but there have some problems like data connection always on and phone getting slow.flight mode can't work.and much more please fix those problems my kindly request to Microsoft

W10 is not ready yet, i've had SIM unable to unlock, camera not working, resolution issues, and overall slowness, so installed back to w8.1update2

Mine still wont update I have a 920 and 1520 the insider says its available but when i got to update it does find it

Lumia 1520 I was looking to get GDR2 but instead I got 10 and one hell of a bug is the back,home, and search buttons not working
