Update: The build is now also available for the Insiders in Slow ring.
Microsoft has just released a new Windows 10 Mobile Build for the Insiders in the Fast ring. The build has the number 10586 and it is the same as the one shipping on the Lumia 950 (XL).
According to Microsoft this build is “great” so I cannot wait to try this new build. Nevertheless there are no significant new features in this build.
Microsoft has fixed many issues from older builds. Here are the fixes:
“We have fixed the issue that caused the Start experience to become corrupted (garbled) after upgrading and restoring a backup from a phone that had a different resolution.
- You should now be able to set your default save locations via Settings > System > Storage and it will correctly reflect the current storage settings. Your SD card should no longer show up as a garbled name in Storage settings either.
- Moving apps to a SD card should no longer cause those apps to crash.
- We’ve made improvements to the Messaging + Skype app – through both app updates via the Store and also on the server side.
- This should be seeing less resuming/loading text when switching apps.
- The physical camera button should be working again if it wasn’t working for you before.
- Apps and games should download from the Store more reliably.”
Before you download the new build watch out because there is one big bug included:
- “After we released Build 10581 to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring, we discovered a bug in the build that will cause the filesystem to become partially corrupted after doing a factory reset. For those of you who did a factory reset of your phone, you most likely did not notice this issue on Build 10581. Due to this bug however, upgrading to Build 10586 will cause your phone to go into a reboot loop after the upgrade completes – rebooting at the Windows or operator logo. To recover your phone, you can use the hardware key combination to reset your phone which will then put it at the OOBE experience on Build 10586. We highly recommend that you make sure you do a backup your phone *before* upgrading to Build 10586 due to this bug. Additionally, you can also recover your phone by using the Windows Device Recovery Tool to go back to Windows Phone 8.1 and then upgrade to Build 10586.”
Here again the instructions for all who are interested in joining the Windows 10 Mobile Insider Program. You need to download the Windows Insider App from the store. In the app you have to log in with your Microsoft Account and choose whether you want to be member of the fast or slow ring (slow: new builds come later, but with not so many bugs and risks). After that the update to the Windows 10 Mobile Preview should be shown in the settings.
There will be an article about the new build and my experiences in the next days.
