Samsung Ativ SE might soon be able to get Windows 10 Mobile Update via production ring
A poster on reddit today shared his experience with the Windows insider app and Windows 10 Mobile. After hacking his phone to update it to another model, he reset the device and lost the ability to both update the phone via insider and the registry changes he had previously made. Microsoft’s update to the Windows Insider app a week ago added the production or release preview ring, and that enabled him to update his device further to the current 10586.107 which Microsoft pushed out to slow ring users yesterday.
The key point to take away is that the Windows Insider app provides the update to .107 via the production ring for this user.
We don’t have a Samsung Ativ SE on hand so cannot verify if Microsoft is also pushing out Windows 10 build 10586.107 to other ATIV SEs via Windows Insider’s production ring or just ones with Windows 10 already installed. If the former, then it means that users with Ativ SE’s can now get Windows 10 via Windows update, albeit without the safety blanket of a skip back to 8.1 if things go south.
