Some Insiders still got Windows 10 Mobile build 10536

Despite Microsoft deciding at the 11th hour not to release build 10536 of the Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview, it looks as though some got the update notification anyway and were able to install.

Microsoft decided to halt a previously promised release as a pretty hefty bug was found that would require anyone who installs to flash back to Windows Phone 8.1 to get any future Windows 10 Mobile builds.

According to some who have installed, the build seems faster (see what we did there?) than previous builds, as we'd hope, and brings back mobile hotspot functionality. There's also talk of a zStorage app appearing, which by no means sounds like a final name.

For the rest of us, it'll be next week before we get a new build. But not having to go back to Windows Phone 8.1 after will no doubt be a relief to many.

If you got the update be sure to hit the comments and let us know what it's like!
