Re: W10 1909 & reinstalling

Dear Sil, welcome to our WoA community! 1. I do not recommend trying the update-path because WOA Deployer is bound to patch some system configuration that might be reverted if you update Windows. 2. just redeploy W10ARM using WOA Deployer. It will always erase previous W10ARM installations so make s...

Re: Phone disk preparation failed. Cannot prepare the phone for the deployment.

It would be totally fine for me or even preferred to (backup and) reset my whole Lumia. By using W10M's settings » about » reset your phone — this should clearly solve the issue, shouldn't it? Yes. But please make a thorough backup BECAUSE after the support ends I am not sure how long the update se...

Re: Deploy process (@start, too) ⇢ Error sending the request

Now that we have solved that issue about access rights (the log does not mention it anymore), how about opening up the website "api.github.com" in your browser? Is it blocked? Can you open cmd.exe and type in "ping api.github.com"? Which IP do you get?

Re: Lumia 950 XL cannot get to mass sorage mode

Glad that the bootloader has been properly unlocked for you, Csybormelgen :)

Since it is very likely that lack of support for newer W10M builds is the cause for this problem, I have reported our investigation to the official wpinternals repository, the corresponding issue located here.

Good idea. Not sure about the Lumia 950 boot architecture. My assumption was that WoA did boot from a 32bit UEFI but because it was kernel-mode code it could just switch into 64bit mode.
