Next Windows 10 Phones Build will be upgradable from all Windows Phone 8.1 Builds


wp_ss_20150212_0001(1)The first Windows 10 for Phones Build, Build 9941.12498 was incompatible with Windows Phone 8.1 builds higher than 8.10.12419.341. We have two Windows Phone 8.1 build higher than this in the wild: 8.10.14226.359 and 8.10.14234.375. In case your devices had these two higher builds you needed to use the new “Windows Phone recovery Tool” to re-flash your device to a lower build for updating to Windows 10 preview, even if you had a supported device.

But the next promised Windows 10 Phones build will be compatible with all Windows Phone 8.1 builds it seems. This is confirmed by Gabe Aul.

  • Just wanted to point out that the first build you mention has a typo: it should be 14219 instead of 12419 🙂

    Speaking of W10…Kamal, do you know that Spartan crashes when accessing NPU website?

    • Kamal

      Yes and I have sent some feedback to ’em. It is some javascript error it seems.

        I also sent feedback but I didn’t investigate the issue… I’ll have to check my websites at work, maybe I’ll find issues there too

    Great news, anybody updated on 8.1, or has an 8.1 phone can easily upgrade to windows 10 🙂 Perfect. Better support than my old crappy android
