W10 1909 & reinstalling

Post by Sil » Mon Dec 23, 2019 8:47 am


Two questions:
1. Has anybody successfully updated to v 1909 on a Lumia 950 XL ?
I haven't. First I had to erase a lot, install an SD card and move some files on it so that there are enough space on C.
Since then, either the phone restarst after the installation but then it's still the old version installed, or it goes to the screen restarting and nothing happens (let it run about 1 hour).
2. Now that I have a dual boot phone, Windows Phone + Windows 10 ARM, how do I go about if I want to erase the Windows 10 ARM to install and test another version ?

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 sure you back-up your data first.

GTA is right - just redeploy it again using WOA Deployer - doesn't matter what state the dual boot is in or whether there's an existing WOA install. The driver pack was updated a few days ago. There's some problems with the latest insider - but 1909 should be fine I reckon.
